9 Lessons From “The Art of War” That Will Change Your Life

I recently finished reading Sun Tzu's classic work on military strategy, "The Art of War," which was originally written in ancient Chinese. Despite the book's emphasis on military tactics, many different fields, including law, education, and business, have benefited from its insights. It also includes a tonne of wise guidance on how to live your best life.


Many people consider Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” to be a valuable resource for life lessons as well as a “bible” for the battlefield.

Life itself is a perpetual battle to, if not maintain dominance, then at the very least get through each day’s difficulties while making the most of our resources.

The Art of War, subject to individual interpretation, can be a tremendous source of inspiration and direction for the defence aspirants.

Here are some important lessons you may apply to your personal life, career, and search for self-improvement from The Art of War.

It is possible that reading Sun Tzu’s book will have a profound impact on your life if you are able to internalise the wisdom contained within it.

However, before we get into that, If you are a defence aspirant who is still feeling anxious about facing your impending SSB interview, you should sign up for our life-changing SSB Interview Master Class as soon as possible.

Lessons From “The Art of War”

After 2,500 years since its initial publication by Sun Tze (also known as Sunzi), a strategist who most likely existed during the Spring and Autumn Period (776-471 BCE), “The Art of War” continues to be one of the most well-known military texts in the world.

1. “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”

2. “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

3. “Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.”

4. “Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.”

5. “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.”

6. “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.”

7. “The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.”

8. “There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.”

9. “Attack is the secret of defense; defense is the planning of an attack.”
