“Take a good hard look at people’s ruling principle, especially of the wise, what they run away from and what they seek out.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations.
Who have been your role models in life so far? Often these special people have departed this World before we realise the impact they have had in giving us direction. Think for a while about those in the here-and-now who show you how they maintain their direction in life – whether they know they’re doing it or not. After all, someone with principles need not necessarily be older and wiser, or, indeed, an identified ‘leader’.
