    You will be unappreciated. You will be sabotaged. You will experience surprising failures. Your expectations will not be met. You will lose. You will fail.
    How do you carry on then? How do you take pride in yourself and your work? John Wooden’s advice to his players says it: Change the definition of success. “Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” “Ambition,” Marcus Aurelius reminded himself, “means tying your well-being to what other people say or do . . . Sanity means tying it to your own actions.”

    Maybe your parents will never be impressed. Maybe your girlfriend won’t care. Maybe the investor won’t see the numbers. Maybe the audience won’t clap. But we have to be able to push through. We can’t let that be what motivates us.

    Greatness comes from humble beginnings; it comes from grunt work. It means you’re the least important person in the room—until you change that with results.

    A true student is like a sponge. Absorbing what goes on around him, filtering it, latching on to what he can hold. A student is self-critical and self-motivated, always trying to improve his understanding so that he can move on to the next topic, the next challenge. A real student is also his own teacher and his own critic. There is no room for ego there.

    There is a sort of ego ceiling imposed—one knows that he is not better than the “master” he apprentices under.

    In this course, it is not “Who do I want to be in life?” but “What is it that I want to accomplish in life?”

    If your purpose is something larger than you—to accomplish something, to prove something to yourself—then suddenly everything becomes both easier and more difficult. Easier in the sense that you know now what it is you need to do and what is important to you. The other “choices” wash away, as they aren’t really choices at all. They’re distractions.

    His point was that many of the systems and structures in the military—the ones that soldiers navigate in order to get ahead—can corrupt the very values they set out to serve.

    Appearances are deceiving. Having authority is not the same as being an authority. Having the right and being right are not the same either.

    Impressing people is utterly different from being truly impressive.

    Whatever we seek to do in life, reality soon intrudes on our youthful idealism. This reality comes in many names and forms: incentives, commitments, recognition, and politics. In every case, they can quickly redirect us from doing to being. From earning to pretending. Ego aids in that deception every step of the way.

    greatest work and art comes from wrestling with the void, facing it instead of scrambling to make it go away.

    The only relationship between work and chatter is that one kills the other.

    “Never give reasons for you what think or do until you must. Maybe, after a while, a better reason will pop into your head.”
