Battling the Enemy Within

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”  ~ Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Do you know yourself and the enemies within that create your “hundred battles”?
