Yes, Mohamed, one has to fight for to the last minute if they wish to win, And this strategy works in every sphere of life.
But do not wait for next summer's contest. Practice now on a regular basis to gain the power.
And also practice noticing interesting facts, events, people, recording your thoughts and feelings - it will be a treasure years after.
