When your competition starts attacking you personally, you’ve won.
Instead of getting defensive or upset, smile and pay attention to your next obstacle.
Retaliating to personal attacks simply feeds the fire and validates your enemies.
The smart people out there understand that when someone is playing the man, it’s because he can’t play the ball.
Never back down from a fight, but don’t stress about personal attacks.
You’ve already won the fight. Focus on getting further ahead.
Smile and wave.
