Daily Journey – November 25th: Funny How that Works Out

A life without physical, mental, and emotional challenges is not luxury… it is a breeding ground for weakness, intellectual decay, and emotional instability.

We need to be challenged. We need to push our limits. We need to test our skills. We need to learn. And we need to build healthy relationships with others.

It’s funny how a lot people think they just want to sit around and take “time off” to feel better, when what they really need to do is face some new challenges in their lives… maybe even fail a few times… that would make the wins feel even better.

Luxury? Please…. don’t waste my time.

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!
