Monday Morning Motivation

“How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?”

Epictetus

I love this quote! It spoke to me when I was trying to lose some weight and was reaching for the junk food in my pantry. Really… I am worth so much more – stay on this diet and I can go to my favorite restaurant in Cincinnati instead! (Nicolas, in case you are interested.)

It has spoken to me in other ways too. Demand the best doesn’t mean the most exclusive or most expensive. I am a firm believer in living your best life – loving, learning, being for others.

It also means respect and never letting anyone put you down or treat you poorly.

How about you – how long are you going to wait before you demand the best for the best version of yourself?

 

P.S. I love reading the Stoics. If you do too tell me who is your favorite or if you are interested in learning more, here is a good place to start.
