In the week I've been a subscriber this has been my favorite one. Lot of great, visual stirring phrases in this one. Humble and practice were two things that kept coming to mind while reading this. Also, makes me think of something I heard from Dan Sullivan I believe while listening to audio version of "The Gap and The Gain":

"There’s not winning and losing. There’s winning and learning."
