Daily Journey – September 12th: Be Down To Earth, Or Be Brought Down

Daily Journey

Humility goes a long way in preventing stress. Think about it for a minute… you get upset because someones actions hurt your ego and burst your bubble. What if that bubble had never been over inflated in the first place?

Going through life with an entitled sense of power or purpose is setting yourself up for struggle and pain.

Be humble about who you are and what you accomplish. Save you energy for working harder.

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!
