Marcus Aurelius: Make the Most of Your Life

The Quote

“Your days are numbered. Use them to throw open the windows of your soul to the sun. If you do not, the sun will set, and you will set with it.” Marcus Aurelius

He’s Right. Make the Most of Your Life

Get out of bed and build something. Find an area of the economy you’re attracted to and work as hard as you can. Be the best mechanic, farmer, writer, accountant, or lawyer you can be. Open up your life to working hard at something worthwhile.

But that’s not all. Life isn’t only about work. When you “throw open the windows of your soul to the sun,” you should throw them open to everything underneath the sun. Study religion and build your faith in Christ. Find someone you love and build a life with them. Find an area of study that you’d like to explore and learn as much as you can about it.

In other words, continually improve yourself. Conquer the world by conquering yourself. Doing so is the best way to make the most of your life.
