No matter what anyone says or does, my task is to be good. Like gold or emerald or purple repeating to itself, “No matter what anyone says or does, my task is to be emerald, my colour undiminished”.
~ Marcus Aurelius (Meditations 87-15)
Why are we getting so upset about what people say these days?
So you didn’t get the raise you wanted. Will that stop you being good?
So, your boss or colleague took credit for something you did. Will that stop you being good?
