“Thick Face, Black Heart is the secret law of nature that governs *
successful behavior in every aspect of one’s life.” This is the main point that Chin-Ning Chu tries to make through this chapter and it is the underlying point for her entire book. Thick Face Black Heart is a saying that means you are not worried about criticism from others and you are willing to focus on your goal and ignore the costs of achieving your goal. To put it in the authors own words thick face is the shield and black heart is the spear. You can take this philosophy and apply it to many aspects of life. I think that I will use this way of thinking a lot more than I already do after reading this book. If I were a business man I think it would be the best way to run my business because if you only focus on your own success and you are not afraid of failure then there is no way to fail. If you let no one and nothing stand In your way and you are willing to do anything to succeed in your own personal endeavors then you will eventually succeed. This may seem to be a selfish or wrong way of thinking but if you really want to succeed you have to be willing to be selfish and take what you fell is yours. Of course this isn’t to say you should do wrong things to achieve what you want but you cant waste time thinking about everyone else’s opinions. To summarize you have to be willing to do anything necessary to succeed and to beat your competition.
