Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. – Napoleon Bonaparte

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. - Napoleon Bonaparte

Never interrupt your enemy when he is doing a mistake, allow them to do so! Know that everything is fair in love and war.

When you are in a competition, you ought to focus on your own work, and that’s when you should make up your mind that you are not there for helping others. You can never afford to help others all the time. 

There is absolutely no point in interrupting your enemy. When you are participating in a race, you should stay focused in your own job, without bothering about what others are doing.

Even if you see your enemy making a mistake at that point of time, just be the one who focuses on your own job rather than pointing out their mistakes and helping them to rectify the same.


In a battle field, your enemy is your competitor, and if you go on helping others, you will never be able to afford to help yourself.

There are times when we help others, and that’s when we end up being a failure at the end. You should always focus on giving your best, and helping your own self over everything else, instead of looking at others and trying to assist them.

You must feel it a little unfair at times, but know that there is nothing wrong in it. When you are focused on your own task, you should be the one who is trying to crack it by all means, either by hook or by crook.

It is generally wise to ensure that you are not applying any unfair means to achieve something but make sure that you are just staying conscious about your own job and are not banging your head about what others are doing.


Even if you see someone taking a wrong turn, just let them do so, for at the end of the day that will prove to be beneficial for you.

You might feel as if that will do no harm to you, but you never know what your enemy’s next move is. In that scenario, you cannot expect your enemy to be as honest as you!

Why trying to become extra honest and kind while you know that you will be hurt back in the long run?

Just do your own task and try to give your best in everything you do, and allow your enemies to commit as many mistakes as they want!
