Combing the Teachings of Aristotle & Rocky
Sorry – my posts are very short at the moment as I’m working from home and juggling looking after the kids – one who’s just started walking
Decide on Your Virtues
Every tribe has a code, every religion, every civilization, traditionally – has had a written or unwritten code.
Each individual should have a code – from somewhere, using Aristotle’s is a decent starting point:
Strive each day to stick to your virtues – a virtuous day, is a day well spent.
Take the Hits
Living by specific ‘good’ virtues, does not guarantee anything. Choose your path and stick to it.
Do not bemoan your lack of success by choosing a path, or way of virtue.
Don’t expect people to be nice, or people not to take advantage.
You have to ‘take the hits’ and keep moving forward and achieve what you can, without falling from the way you have chosen.
