“Your potential, the absolute best you’re capable of—that’s the metric to measure yourself against. Your standards are. Winning is not enough. People can get lucky and win. People can be assholes and win. Anyone can win. But not everyone is the best possible version of themselves.”
Ryan Holiday, Ego Is the Enemy

“There is no good or bad without us, there is only perception. There is the event itself and the story we tell ourselves about what it means.”
Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph

“Impressing people is utterly different from being truly impressive.”
Ryan Holiday, Ego Is the Enemy
