Never mind the turtle. Don't you think you're sure to win?

It depends how you define winning... For much of my life, I let other people tell me what "winning" looks like. As I've gotten older, I've learned that the only definition of "winning" that matters is the one I create. Right now, I define winning as leveraging my influence and resources to help other people achieve their goals.
