Something I’ve come to understand about Jiu Jitsu is that the player who maximizes their opportunities is (more often than not) the one who emerges successful in any exchange.
For example: the guard player who has an in depth understanding of their options and creates more opportunities than their opponent is able to prevent finds success through their efforts. The passer who opens a number of avenues to pass will always be more successful than the passer who tries to insist on a single pass.
The name of the game is opportunities. The more angles of approach we create; the greater our chances of success in any given endeavor.
This applies to Jiu Jitsu, but equally to work, study and other aspects of our lives. The more we are able to position ourselves to maximize success, the more often we will find it.
