The Daily Stoic - Day 21

The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday

Day 21 Quote:

“Ask yourself the following first thing in the morning: 

What am I lacking in attaining freedom from passion? 

What for tranquility? 

What am I? 

A mere body, estate-holder, or reputation? 

None of these things. What, then? 

A rational being. What then is demanded of me? 

Meditate on your actions. 

How did I steer away from serenity? 

What did I do that was unfriendly, unsocial, or uncaring? 

What did I fail to do in all these things?”

  -  Epictetus
