Playing To Win
“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about.”
The most inspiring people I have ever met – those that have led an amazing life – seem to only disclose the intriguing elements of their journey when pressed to share.

It is that they already know their own story, they already know what they know. What they don’t know is what they don’t know. They are keenly aware that they can not learn if they are talking, only if they are listening.
