Over two and a half thousand years ago, Sun Tzu wrote the following passage in his treatise, The Art of War.
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
Though how many of us pay attention to it when we are fighting our own personal enemies?
I am talking about things like our own ego, procrastination, imposter syndrome, etc.
How many of us stop and think that the enemies I mentioned above, are all figments of our imagination?
That the power that they have actually comes from us, and nowhere else?
The sooner we realise this, the sooner we can *know* our enemy, and the sooner we can start defeating it.
