Everyone likes to win.
I don’t think there’s anyone that, if asked, would say they don’t want to win in life.
Millions ponder what it would take to win. They read books. They listen to audios. They attend seminars. They seek gurus.
What many are missing is this one prerequisite. Without it, winning isn’t possible.
In order to win, you must first…
… be in the game!
You can’t win sitting in the stands.

Reflected experience is the teacher of all things.
Experience that is reflected upon is the best teacher, but a fool never reflects.
