Marcus Aurelius Motivate Yourself To Do Something - A Wise and Selfless Man Once Said........

This man is respected for his great contributions to mankind. Could anyone imaging how much would be lost if Marcus Aurelius the man, the mind and the gifts to mankind never happened? Explore into the world of this brilliant man who gave of himself so unselfishly. Once you spend even the smalles amount of time reading and contemplating what he says, you yourself are that much better than you were just ten minutes earlier.

At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: “I have to go to work — as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for — the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?”

To the mind’s natural protestation that staying under the blankets simply feels nicer, Aurelius retorts:

So you were born to feel “nice”? Instead of doing things and experiencing them? Don’t you see the plants, the birds, the ants and spiders and bees going about their individual tasks, putting the world in order, as best they can? And you’re not willing to do your job as a human being? Why aren’t you running to do what your nature demands?

Everything we hear is an opinion, not fact.
Everything we see is perspective, not truth. Marcus Aurelius
