Motivational Monday, May 07, 2012

It’s Monday again!! Come on now get your ass off your chair and start the week off with a bang. In this short post I would like you to read the following quote

“When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: The people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous and surly. They are like this because they can’t tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own–not of the same blood or birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me.”  –Marcus Aurelius

How many of us wake up on Monday hating that they have to go back to work, school, training or whatever because of the people they have to deal with? Take heart you are not alone and as you can see from the above quote this has been around for hundreds if not thousands of years. So go back and read Marcus Aurelius’s quote again and fortify your spirit against those who you have to deal with each day!
