Daily Journey – September 5th: Focus on What is Yours Alone

Daily Journey

One of the Ten Commandments “Thou Shall Not Covet” could have added if you want to be happy be thankful for what you have.

Getting caught up in envy and jealousy is recipe for doom and gloom. Look around you and see just how rich you are.

Beyond worldly possession, you have the ultimate control of who you are and what you do. Focus on your sphere of influence and control to find happiness.

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!
