Personal Development and Career

If winning is a natural and legitimate motivation and reaching the peak of our achievement an admirable aim, the obstacles in our path have to be included in our personal algebra.  The human act of losing is the best platform for challenging the limits and of winning “impossible” matches. Calmly and humbly we have to accept and be aware of this irrefutable fact.


What is success? Who defines it? Do you know how to lose? What is your own count on victories and defeats? Just like in war, what is the final balance of losses? Do you see your personal Odyssey as a burden or does it guide and enrich you, lending it a more realistic, humble and wise face? These are some of the questions that the author  poses in the book.
