Never let your weakest point be your doom. Use it to your advantage and you will come out stronger and invincible.
3. “Shake Your Right Hand But Hold a Rock With Your Left”
Never be caught off guard even when things seem to move according to plan. Politics is a game of pure hypocrisy; and you always need to be vigilant and protect yourself when need arises.
4. “Pain Should Make You Stronger”
Pain is an experience that should make people stronger. They can only grow stronger by overcoming it victoriously. To simply put it, what does not kill you only makes you stronger.
5. Never Make Sudden Decisions
“I never make such big decisions so long after sunset and so far from dawn.”
Take time to think about a decision and sleep on it. A decision based on this concept is bound to work in your favour.
6. To Survive You Need To Be Immune
“From this moment on you are a rock. You absorb nothing, you say nothing and nothing breaks you.”
