Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones

You can come to bodily harm without warning, and sometimes without any way to avoid it. But you always maintain full control of your mind and your reasoned choice, and in that sense you can’t be beaten.

The Most Powerful Ability

There’s not much we can control in this world, but we do have the ability to control how we respond to events in our life. And that’s the most powerful ability of all.

Good Fortune Illuminates Character, Too

Good luck and prosperity don’t just automatically bring happiness. If your soul is mired in fear, then they only bring more fear. Aim for a stronger soul first, rather than good fortune.

Leisure With a Side of Learning

We all like our downtime, but that shouldn’t mean shutting down our minds as well. We need to ensure we’re always learning, even when we’re taking a break from the daily grind.

Enslaved by Fear

We’re all handcuffed to various vices and dependencies. We’ve enslaved ourselves to fear. Thankfully, we also hold the key to our freedom.

The Rational Fortress

Through regular practice, you can develop habits and behaviors that will reinforce the rational behavior of your mind — a fortress that can’t ever be breached.

The Proof Is In the Struggle

Difficulties demonstrate your character, especially to yourself. When you find yourself challenged, embrace it as an opportunity to prove what you’re made of.

Keep the Beat

When life throws you off your rhythm, you have to find your way back as quickly as possible. Keeping the beat will help you get back on track.
