My Daily Journey – August 20th: Where it Counts

If people think you are crazy they won’t take you seriously. What we are dealing with on the inside isn’t always best reflected on the outside. This is an area that must be in balance with the world we live in.

Slim Shady nailed it “He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready.”
 
Think about someone you know who is over the top externally, is it hard to take them seriously? Being in control of our emotional responses and our outward appearance is an important aspect of how others perceive us.

Daily Journey is a collection of my thoughts from reading The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.  My objective is to gain greater control of my emotional responses by reading and sharing my thoughts on stoicism with you all everyday over the course of a next year.  If you would like to explore these topics with me, and others who are seeking to gain emotional control I these articles to the Mastery of Skill closed facebook group and would love for you to join in on the conversation.

Live Skillfully!
