If you believe in winning at all costs then you may have won the battle but have lost the war or the very purpose for what you have been fighting.
My favourite example - when you oppose a Political Party because of its divisive, petty and long-term detrimental approach, you cannot beat them using the same strategies and tactics that propelled them to victory. When that's your methodology, the best you can hope to do is replace them in perpetuating division and system erosion.
Moving forward together means leaving no one behind, period. And if it works out that one path simply doesn't allow for that objective to be realized, don't limit yourself.
There are, after all, many paths to the top of the mountain.
