This is how I live my life.
The characters above translate to mean, “True victory is victory over oneself.”
I have never been competitive in the normal sense of the word. I have never tried to be, nor even had the desire to be, the best guitarist in the world. Nor the best runner, artist, songwriter or anything else. I know when I have done well with something, and it matters not if another has done or could do it better or worse, if I know that I am doing the utmost that I can, and continually improving myself, then I know that I am being the most true form of me that I can be. And I have no desire to be anything else.
