If you’re going to play the game, play to win.
Winning means no survivors other than the winner. You must be ruthless, merciless, remorseless.
Throw absolutely everything you have at the competition. Leave nothing in the bag. Leave no dirty trick unplayed.
Business is like war. If you leave your defeated enemy able to fight another day, you’ve created your own downfall. He will one day reap his revenge, and even if he doesn’t, you’ll be looking over your shoulder for the rest of your days.
Deciding to fight is no small decision. It means being ready to employ a scorched earth policy. Leave no survivors.
Not only will is it the only way to win, but future potential enemies will think twice before taking you on.
