It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
: success in defeating an opponent or enemy
Victory is not measured in what the appointed “win” was or what everyone else believes victory is. Victory is what you are able to defeat or achieve with your best effort given. Personal victory or as you might say defeating your own demons is true victory. Victory should not be measured to other people’s standards. Instead we should have a concept of our own enemies and plan our own battles. Our victories are not controlled by others. Just as we have control over our dreams, destinies, and fates; we have control over our victories. We are not the circumstances we come about in life, but how we defeat them. In one way or another you will overcome. In one way or another you will experience complete victory.
