"The Road Not Taken" is a source of inspiration for me, because it encourages me to seize opportunities and chart my own course in life.

Official Stoic Poster:

Ancient stoic wisdom to help you rise above life’s challenges. Written by us, through our passion and study of stoicism.

Background music: Ancient Fathers – Kyle Preston


Foreign [Music] In the beginning you must stumble Your Way Forward giving little regard to Appearances It is a matter of will not to succumb to What disturbs you You must resolve to be unshaken Challenges appear not to harm you but to Give you an opportunity to prove Yourself worthy Nothing shows strength of character more Than bearing a burden with Grace [Music] To be able to fight another day is Enough reason to give thanks Each breath a blessing from the gods We often suffer more from our thoughts About a situation than from the problem Itself Whatever you feel overwhelmed ask Yourself What is in my control And what is not in my control Constant thoughts about the past and Future Rob each moment of the attention He deserves Anchor yourself to the present or risk Your life passing you by without ever Being properly lived [Music] Death is coming for us all Do not lose sight of the fact that your Time here is limited

Allow this to dictate your thoughts and Actions [Music] When we are being the best we can be It isn’t found in acquiring more Possessions If you cannot see the value of what you Already possess No amount of Fortune will satisfy your Craving Everything you need already lies within You You need only apply yourself to see your True power manifest [Music] Anything of value will take time to Appear Patience steady progress will bring your Goal to fruition To rush and look for shortcuts will only Bring ruin Discipline moderation and positive Thoughts are the pillars of a stable Mind [Music] Time is fleeting Postpone nothing Stay present Bring forth your best [Music]
