Don't eat your own bullshit

A thoughtful weekend read and a timely reminder for reflecting on all bad decisions made this year and in the last four years...

 

"Life is tricky. It is never clear when you are at your peak (and about to head downwards into a death spiral) or at your bottom (and about to skyrocket upwards to your greatest heights). Right now, you could be sitting at the very peak of your life (or you could be sitting at the very bottom of your life), and there is no way to tell which is which. It is the scary truth for all of us. This truth applies to people, companies, and countries. Change can happen gradually over time or it can happen instantly. For me, success is the greatest imposter. In life, business, or martial arts, winning is a falsehood. It seduces smart people into thinking that they are invincible. It tricks good people into believing that they are infallible. And it robs all people of reality and truth. Don’t believe the hype. And don’t eat your own bullshit. Or you will lose everything. The only antidote to the poison of success is humility, hunger, and gratitude. Stay humble. Stay hungry. Stay grateful. And outwork everyone. Always." - Chatri Sityodtong
