The first paragraph of the “Manual” or called the “Handbook” written by Epictetus describes that there is a power that is within us. This power is not on the mere surface of brute physical strength as some may think about. Its not the power to outplay another in a game of wits in some sports match.

As soon as the alarm wakes you up, you begin the race of the day. Somehow you gear towards what is next. A series of activities launch one after the other from getting ready for work, working, going home, and even on breaks you remain on some type of movement.
This is only the tip of the iceberg. At home, there are dozens of things to do and even more so trying to squeeze something else into the morning activities. Go Go Go! For some reason, this is the mindset. Did you forget some R. R.?
