From the Back Cover
If you are upset by something outside you, it is not the thing itself that upsets you, but your opinion of it. And it is in your power to wipe away that opinion immediately.
If your own thoughts are causing you pain, who is keeping you from changing them?
Is there an obstacle blocking your way? Make it part of your plan and turn it to your advantage.
What if it kills you? Then you'll leave this world contentedly, as someone who pursued a worthy goal to the end--not as a coward who gave up and stopped trying.

So far I've read it twice. I'm grateful for Aurelius's wisdom. The book is written well and is very easy to follow and understand. I recommend it!
For example, the author emphasizes non-attachment to material things. Well written, and without typos. However, I wonder how accurate this work reflects the original. How good is the transition? All this aside, well worth reading. I am going to look at some of the other books by the author.
In this case EVERY SINGLE PAGE is filled with "WOWs!" I had to stop highlighting because I was highlighting every page.
To think that a Roman Emperor had the insight to to write and teach such a beautiful philosophy is rather incredible.
The only problem is that it's taking me a long time to read, as I have to stop, absorb, and try to apply his stoic teaching.

Marcus Aurelius texts help you to put yourself and your actions in perspective to the universe, focus on reason rather than emotion and to prioritize your mind above all external things.
Even though at times it can be repetitive, with repetition you start internalizing the message.
Structured into 12 short chapters/ books, reading a chapter each morning is a great way to start into a mindful day! =)
genuinely compelling so far. The introduction is brief yet compelling and it feels like the enduring book
full of insight that the original went on to capture so many for so many generations....
