2 Reasons Why You Should Stop Reading Motivational Books –Read This Instead

There are two important lessons I find particularly enlightening in the book, Art of War by Sun Tzu;

Number one: Know your strengths and weaknesses: if you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
Number two: Know when to fight and when not to fight: avoid what is strong and strike at what is weak.
I’ll tell you why I found these two lessons quite enlightening. You see, life is a warfare of survival; both internal and external warfare. Imagine you are an army going into a battle field relying on motivation. You are psyched up by your commander to go out and fight. But you have no knowledge and understanding of yourself or your opponent. You are ignorant of your own and of your opponent’s strength and weaknesses. According to the Art of War, if this was your strategy, you are bound to lose. If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself, but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. But if you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

This captured why I stopped reading and watching motivational books and video to consume a different kind of materials. I will share all about that with you in this video. Before we get to it, be sure to subscribe to After School Africa for more insightful videos like this.
