Tenacity with Humility

“The first step: Don’t be anxious.

Nature controls it all.

And before long you’ll be no one, nowhere – like Hadrian, like Augustus.

The second step: Concentrate on what you have to do.

Fix your eyes on it.

Remind yourself that your task is to be a good human being; remind yourself what nature demands of people.

Then do it, without hesitation, and speak the truth as you see it.

But with kindness.

With humility.

Without hypocrisy.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
