Daily Touch of Inspirations

June 10th: You can do it

Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living

If you find something very difficult to achieve yourself, don't imagine it impossible —for anything possible and proper for another person can be achieved as easily by you. —Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 6.19

There are two kinds of people in this world. The first looks at others who have accomplished things and thinks: Why Them? Why not me? The other looks at those same people and thinks: If they can do it, why can't I?

One is zero-sum and jealous (if you win, I lose). The other is non-zero-sum (ther's plenty to go around) and sees the success of others as an inspiration. Which attitude will propel you onward and upward? Which will drive you to bitterness and despair?

Who will you be?
