Daily Journey – November 18th: Four Habits of the Stoic Mind

1. Accept nothing false or uncertain: Do the work and research the facts, pursue the truth, and don’t accept things at face value
 
2. Work toward the common good: You need good things to happen for others around you, you can do those good deeds
 
3. Limit your desires to what is within your control: Wasting time on things outside your control will only drag you down
 
4. Embrace what nature has in store for you: Nature will run it’s course, live accordingly

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!
