Buddhism: True Success is Winning in the Battle With Yourself

“What is defeat in life? It is not merely making a mistake; defeat means giving up on yourself in the midst of difficulty. What is true success in life? True success means winning in your battle with yourself. Those who persist in pursuit of their dreams, no matter what the hurdles, are winners in life, for they have won over their waekness.”
