Daily Journey – September 19th: Flexibility of the Will

Having the ability to doggedly stick to your beliefs, actions, and behaviors can be a valuable ability, but it can also be a liability.

Focus and determination must also be balanced with the ability to assess reason and logic so we do not blindly trudge along a path that will lead us to disaster.

Our ability to think critically about the world around us is the key to maintaining this flexibility in our will power and will ensure our determination is applied to actions that will have a positive outcome.

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!
