In Can. Will. Did. I noted “I do not believe in nor hold to toxic positivity. I believe in and hold to Optimism. There is a difference, markedly so. The former bores me anyway. For me, it is escapism. The latter, that practice of Optimism… knows that I am “enough” even in the moments I feel weakened. Our emotions matter. But they are not our masters. We are the captains of our Soul… and we need see our own emotional Courage.”
Since then, I have written a lot on my exploration of Stoicism this month. That said, I am exploring Stoicism as it relates to Character… forward… and will be sharing here. These times forward demand of me and you… an anchor, ballast, rudder and sail to navigate and move forward. My life, personally and professionally … in matters of health and work and Service… it needs it. Walk Tall. And, Character + Purpose = Unity. More to follow…
“Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness. People are just people, and all people have faults and shortcomings, but all of us are born with a basic goodness. ― Anne Frank
