The 50th Law

The 50th Law – Robert Greene & 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson)

Fear Nothing – Nihil Timendum Est

Biggest fear is being yourself – stop trying to be like everyone else and just be yourself. Energy is lost when you’re not yourself.

Know the other, know yourself, and the victory will not be at risk. Know the ground, know the natural conditions and the victory will be total.
