I’ve been lucky to find Sebastian Marshall’s blog and have enjoyed reading his posts on philosophy, strategy, personal development and victory – so much so that I asked if I could write a guest post on his site. I had some ideas brewing that I thought would be perfect for his audience and it’d also be an opportunity to reach potential new readers of JasonShen.com
So after a few weeks of brainstorming, writing and editing, I’m proud to share with you my post on sebastianmarshall.com called “Unorthodox Strategies for Winning“. The post focuses on six strategies that are often overlooked and potentially quite effective when pursuing victory. Two excerpts:
From Sebastian: I was really honored and thrilled when Jason Shen offered to write a guest post here at SebastianMarshall.com – he’s an incredibly bright guy with broad knowledge and skillset, writes well and clearly, and is an all-around good guy. So I’m really excited to be able to bring you a guest post by him – I imagine you’ll want to read more by him afterwards, and you can reach him at his website – www.jasonshen.com.

Beth Anne Waters got her GED, then her college degree, then her law degree, then passed the bar and found biological evidence to exonerate her brother from a crime he didn’t commit – all while raising two kids. It took her 18 years. They made a movie about it – but the story is real
Incredible – I mean who does that? Any reasonable person would have given up a long time ago. But if you simply decide you are not willing to lose and will do whatever it takes to win, your chances of success go up dramatically.
So definitely go read the whole article, and check out the rest of Seb’s stuff too – he’s reading stuff and thinking about things and it reflects in his writing – I don’t see much online that is like it. For example: The Differences Between Being High Born and Low Born. Very insightful observations, but something that few people talk about.
