The Art of War, Sun Tzu
This book is all about strategies which enable every leader to develop and strengthen the right sets set of skills and discipline, to ensure a successful growth of his team.
Even though the Art Of War is a 2500-year-old classic on military operations, its amazing empowered wisdom has been used by leaders in different sectors to ensure that their teams are less vulnerable to attacks and more competitive.
The main idea of the book is that we should know our enemies, competitors, ourselves, and find the best methods to destroy them.
Too often we find entrepreneurs who not only have no idea about their competitor, but they barely have a clear perspective about themselves.
Sun Tzu uses a set of quotes all around the book, which summarizes everything we should know about how to be victorious in any situation. Below you will find some of those quotes we selected for you:
“To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence. Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.” – Sun Tzu
“If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you need not to fear the results of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” – Sun Tzu
“An army may march great distances without a stress, if it marches through a country where the enemy is not.” – Sun Tzu
“Do not repeat the tactics which have gained you one victory, but let your methods be regulated by the infinite variety of circumstances.” – Sun Tzu
Last but not least…“The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy’s not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable.” – Sun Tzu
