Lose Not Your Self

“The only real failure is abandoning your principles.”  Ryan Holiday

To have the world yet lose yourself is too great a sacrifice.

To gain the trophy but cheat to do so is an affront to the integrity of the game and yourself.

To win the heart and affections of another through lies or deceit is never worth it.

To trade your time for success is acceptable, to trade your very Being is not.

Know what your bright lines are, the ones you will not cross no matter what you may gain in return.  Stay on the right side of the line.
