"Now is the time to get serious about living your ideals.
Once you have determined the principles you wish to exemplify, abide
by these rules as if they were laws,
as if it were indeed sinful to compromise them.
Don't mind if others don't share your convictions.
How long can you afford to put off who you really want to be?
Your noble self cannot wait any longer.
Put your principles into practice-NOW.
Stop the excuses and the procrastination.
This is your Life!
You aren't a child anymore.
The sooner you set yourself to your living with integrity,
the happier you will be.
The longer you wait, the more you will be vulnerable to mediocrity
and feel filled with shame and regret,
because you know you are capable of better.
From this instant on, vow to stop disappointing yourself.
Separate yourself from the mob.
Decide to be extraordinary and do what you need to do - Now!"
- Epictetus (Epic tee tus) a Roman Stoic AD55
