“So someone’s good at taking down an opponent, but that doesn’t make them more community-minded, or modest, or well-prepared for any circumstance, or more tolerant of the faults of others.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations.
Being a champion at one thing doesn’t make us brilliant at everything else. We are all winners and losers – more-or-less – all of the time. Our greatest glory is in continuing to strive to be ‘well-rounded individuals’ every day. Recognise and accept your weaknesses, shortcomings and failures, and be modest about your achievements.
