Third, last and - for me - the most important lesson from Playing the Enemy/Invictus/ the life of this amazing man.
Throughout the long years of his struggle he had one clear, overarching purpose. That's it! He used whatever strengths, talents, tactics, abilities he had available to achieve this one purpose. His grand vision never left him, although its strength may have dimmed at times when the world around him seemed hostile, bleak and dark. Yet he kept the spark alive, and poured his life in to fanning it into a country-changing fire.
How many of us can clearly articulate our purpose, let alone live it out, under all circumstances, every day of our life?
