    No One Can Stop You From Doing The Right Thing

    “The responsibility is all yours; no one can stop you from being honest or straightforward.” — Marcus Aurelius

    Remember today that no matter what is happening you can respond virtuously and all of your behavior is under your control. As the philosopher and former trader Nassim Taleb put it, “The only aspect of your life that fortune does not have control over is your behavior.” This is a very powerful thought that we often forget. You can choose to be kind, virtuous, patient, good, just and courageous.

    It is up to you. Unless you allow emotions and self-serving thoughts to interfere.
