Weak men act to satisfy their needs

Weak men act to satisfy their needs, stronger men their duties. Nassim Nicholas Taleb

You’ve had a bad day, Nothing went right, But now you have to do your duties

Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change

Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change. Wayne Dyer
