“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” -Marcus Aurelius ❤️❤️❤️
-----
Each morning my alarm goes off at 5AM.
.
I usually pop up out of bed, get outside and just start moving.
.
But when my iPhone played it’s wake-up jingle yesterday...
.
I just wasn’t having it!
.
Fortunately, I got myself up and out, but unfortunately, my mind would NOT shut up.
.
Nearly the entire walk consisted of defeating thoughts playing on repeat...
.
But as I turned the final corner that all changed…
.
I took a deep breath and finally caught up with my racing mind.
.
Coming to my senses and fully into the present moment, the beauty all around me began to unfold...
.
the deeply rooted trees selflessly giving off oxygen for me to breathe,
.
the hardworking heart pumping life throughout my body,
.
the eyes effortlessly letting in light for me to see.
.
I was reminded that there really is so much to be grateful for in this life we’re gifted.
.
Today, feel the gratitude and allow it to set you free!
.
Tag a friend and let them know you're grateful for them #StoicElite ❤️ #SEfam

"If I can't solve this for myself, how can I at least make this better for other people?"
-
Take it for granted, for a second, that there is nothing else in it for us. Nothing we can do for ourselves.
-
How can we use this situation to benefit or teach others?
-
How can we salvage some good out of this?
-
"If not for me, then for the others I'm leading, or for those who might later find themselves in a similar situation."
-
Even if we can't carry the load all the way, we're going to take our crack at picking up the heavy end.
-
We're going to be of service to others.
-
Help ourselves by helping them.
-
Becoming better because of it, drawing purpose from it.
-
Whatever you're going through, whatever is holding you down or standing in your way, can be turned into a source of strength - by thinking of people other than yourself.
-
You won't have time to think of your own suffering, because there are other people suffering and you're too focused on them.
-
Pride can be broken. Toughness has its limits.
-
But a desire to help?
-
No harshness, no deprivation, no toil should interfere with our empathy toward others.
-
Compassion is always an option. Camaraderie as well.
-
Lend a hand to others.
-
Be strong for them - and it will make you stronger.

Ego might shield love, but can never appear bigger than Love. Hence no how great you feel being an Egoist, you can never be greater than the Lover in you. And what I adore, is the Lover!

👊🏻 Love this! 🖤 (stolen from my good amigo @mennofritskoopmans 😘) #ego #egoistheenemy #amigo But seriously....this reminds me of one of my favourite quotes from Eckhart Tolle's 'The Power of Now'. When talking about ego he writes: "Death is a stripping away of all that is not you (i.e. ego). The secret of life is to "die before you die" --- and find that there is no death." ⭐️🙏🏻

We've gotta watch that #ego ,right?

It can be a beast and bite us in the bum if we're not careful #FridayMusings #AlwaysLearning #EgoIsTheEnemy #SoulFood

Memento Mori..."Remember death"...I keep this with me to remind myself of the fleetingness of life, and therefore to be present and live in the moment. To appreciate the small things in life and to practice gratitude. To remain humble and keep things in perspective. To remember that it is not events themselves that matter, but how we interpret those events. To respond to things that are real, not imaginary fears. To acknowledge that all emotions and happiness come from within. To avoid ego, anger, blaming, and complaining. To be positive. TO BE NOW.

I am SO excited about my FIRST insta post! 📖Currently reading Ego is the enemy by Ryan Holiday. Great book! ✨✨✨SUCCESS.Here we are at the top of a mountain we worked hard to Climb-or at least the summit is in the sight. Now we face new temptations and problems. We breath thinner air in the unforgiving environment. Why is success so ephemeral? Ego Shortens it. Whether a collapse is dramatic or a slow erosion, it's always possible and often unnecessary. We stop learning, we stop listening, and we lose our grasp on what matters. We become victims of ourselves and the competition. Sobriety, open-mindedness, organization and purpose-these are the great stabilizers. They balance out the ego and pride that comes with achievement and recognition. -Ryan Holiday #goodbook #egoistheenemy #booklover #instabooks #bookworm #igbooks #getlostinagoodbook #goodreads #ego

“Make a distinction in your own mind, and be in readiness to say, it is not that which has happened that afflicts this man...but it is the opinion about this thing which afflicts the man.” -Epictetus 👓👓👓
--------⠀
High School football is taken very seriously in Brooklyn.⠀
.⠀
As Senior Captain, I felt a deep responsibility for the “success” of the team⠀
.⠀
Ranked among the best teams in the country, we went on to win every game of the regular season,⠀
.⠀
Until one day it all came crashing down…⠀
.⠀
We fell off the huge wave of wins with a devastating wipe out in the Semi-finals.⠀
.⠀
I remember feeling completely defeated.⠀
.⠀
I remember crying for weeks... I had let my team down.⠀
.⠀
Looking back, I didn’t cry because of the loss...⠀
.⠀
I cried because of the meaning I was giving the loss.⠀
.⠀
Since then I’ve learned to give empowering meanings to my obstacles...⠀
.⠀
In this case I learned that preparation never stops...even when you are winning⠀
.⠀
All it takes is a simple question: “What can I learn from this?”⠀
.⠀
When’s the last time you cried? What can you learn from reflecting back to that moment?⠀

My annoying left shoulder is still bothering me, so I'm staying away from the barbell and butterfly pull ups and any swinging type of gymnastics movements for the next few weeks. I think I reinjured it doing ring MUs last week! Dumb move! I will, however, be participating this weekend for the #liftupautism WOD. Its going to be FUN! I'll save my pull ups for that! Hopefully, I wont mess it up even more! Oh well... I still want to maintain my fitness, though! Program time! I was happy to find out a 20LBs slamball didnt produce any pain in my left shoulder. Yay, so I put that in the WOD! Box jumps! No bounding in this one. My achilles is now bothering me! #gettingoldsucks . My L-sits on the rings are weak! I need to work on those! Result: 11:24. I was going to rest for 2 minutes, then do 100 kettle bell swings, Americana style, for time, but opted out. I got what I wanted from this WOD. No need to go crazy! #egoistheenemy #quitwhileyourahead #movementtherapy #iwishiwasatthebox #happyicanstillmove #gratitude #funnyhairdontcare

I have always preached that ego is what is in the way of true happiness and success. When ego kills altruism, we end up fighting, miserable and alone so I was happy to discover a book validating my thinking.This very thorough essay on ego draws on history, philosophy and literature to expose the dangers of letting ego drive your life. In an era where people are more interested in posting their perfect selfie to an anonymous world than talk and actively listen to each other, it is a good topic to ponder.
Happy reading! 📖

I despise conformity so much that anything that I feel like I'm conforming to that is trendy or that society says to conform to, my ego will quickly turn me off from whatever it is...even if in my heart I truly love it. My ego is a fucking hater and today I told her shut the fuck up let me live my life...ahhh feels good
