There is a saying that when you scheme to make yourself and the company successful its called 'leadership' and when you scheme to make only yourself successful its called 'politics.' (some cynics add that if you make the company successful but not yourself its called 'stupidity' :-)

The exhortation 'go big or go home' is clearly a challenge to 'win' at all costs. How people internalize that challenge reflects on their character and their moral compass. Its all about what someone considers and 'acceptable cost' at that point.
