Before you start your journey, you must conquer yourself. You must conquer your ego. Ego is the issue with us. You don’t need to conquer the world, but you need to conquer yourself. Without that, you can’t do anything.
Marcus Aurelius said, “Yes, you can- if you do everything as if it were the last thing you were doing in your life, and stop being aimless, stop letting your emotions override what your mind tells you.” Don’t let your emotions control your decisions. For example, when you are angry, don’t make any decisions. Because anger is bad. It is a bad emotion. If you allow it to control you, it will mess you up.
When you are angry, try to focus on something that will make you feel really better about the situation. Learn to master your own emotions. If you want to conquer the world, you must first conquer your emotions. If you want to conquer other people, you must first conquer your emotions. Because you are your master.
