For my student, Pinky

Its true.  People only understand victory in terms of big wins. Its like appreciating a journey only in terms of the ‘getting there’ part. So if you don’t have this big win in your life and simply, merely believe in victory, you’re considered a loser.

If you’re battling something — say, some dragon— you have to win in the way others understand winning.  For them, the good fight isn’t worth it.  It means nothing.   If there’s no win in the near future, if there’s no win that is obvious to all,  you might as well just throw in the towel.

  1. Hey, at the end of the day it’s the journey that makes everything worthwhile. You may have a crap one along the way or an excellent one but it’s the lessons at each stage of the journey that actually makes us understand why we got to the end when we did not set out to get to THAT kind of end in the first place.
