While the month of July is named for Julius Caesar, Marcus Aurelius was one of the most respected rulers of the Roman Empire about 1800 years ago.
He gave us 6 thoughts to live by and one unique observation:
1: Your task is to be good
2: If it’s possible, you can do it
3: People do the best they can
4: The obstacle IS the way
5: Applause and fame are worthless
6: Life is short
“We all love ourselves more than other people, but care more about their opinion than our own.” — Marcus Aurelius
Never stop doing your best just because someone is not giving you credit.
PS: The smart people say this is what Marcus really looked like, based on the science, etc.
