When Alezander the Great arrived on the shores of Persia his army was overwhelmingly outnumbered. Yet he gave the orders to his men and said, "we go home in Persian ships, or we die". What followed was an astounding victory over an army that was in many ways superior. Win or die. Simple. There's nothing like burning your boats to focus your mind on one thing, and one thing only--success. It's extraordinary what we as leaders are capable of when we have no other option but to give our absolute best. That requires 100% commitment. Really trying won't do it. Giving it a shot won't either. Only 100%.
