Sun Tzu (Wikipedia : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Tzu) seems to be a wise person. His Art of War is popular amongst students of military – and business – strategy.

Sun-Tzu-quote-06-Jan-2016

He said “Every battle is won before it is fought”. It means that you first need to win in your head; only then can you win in the battleground.

My mentor Aporesh Acharya used to say of sportspersons “You don’t win out there (in the field), you win out here (in the mind)”.

In the movie Sholay, Gabbar Singh, the dacoit said “Jo dar gaya woh mar gaya”. Loosely translated, it means “if you get scared, you are finished”.

This is a universally applicable truth and anyone can benefit by internalising it.
