Don’t Let This Go To Your Head

Don’t Let This Go To Your Head

“Make sure you’re not made ‘Emperor,’ avoid that imperial stain. It can happen to you, so keep yourself simple, good, pure, saintly, plain, a friend of justice, god-fearing, gracious, affectionate, and strong for your proper work. Fight to remain the person that philosophy wished to make you. Revere the gods, and look after each other. Life is short-the fruit of this life is a good character and acts for the common good.”- Marcus Aurelius

When we experience success and not if, WHEN, we must make sure that it doesn’t change us-that we continue to maintain our character despite the temptation not to. Reason must lead the way no matter what good fortune comes along.
