30 Days of Marcus Aurelius – Day 2

Do not think that what is hard for you to master is humanly impossible; but if a thing is humanly possible, consider it to be within your reach. — Meditations, Book VI

My Take – If others can do it, then so can you.  Maybe not as easily, or as smoothly, but it is possible.  Take time to learn, practice, and practice some more, and you will be surprised at what you can do.  The key is to not give up, even when you do not initially succeed.

  1. Seems that thinking a thing is hard to master, or nearly impossible, is half the problem – when I stop focusing on how hard it is, I have my whole brain free to focus on learning and solving the problems presented.

    • I agree. I always seem to do more when I’m not concerned with how I can’t do it.

  2. And just because one DOES succeed, doesn’t mean one can quit practicing either…
