He was also a devout student of the philosophy of Stoicism. Meditations starts out with Aurelius listing lessons he’s learned from various people in his life. Aurelius was wise enough to know, though, that there are lessons to be learned from everyone around us. A failing, even multiple failings, doesn’t negate someone’s ability to have a positive impact on your life.
During his rule, Aurelius found the time to construct a series of autobiographical writings, now known as the Meditations. In these writings, the Marcus Aurelius offered a number of key insights on how to build self discipline. I ultimately found the exercise of meditating on Meditations to be rather enriching.
