Invicta: Undefeated, Unconquered

Moments can define us for better or worse. Epiphanies sometimes elude our grasp or deliver unparalleled success. Environment can be allowed make or break you. The Stoics (particularly Aurelius) sought to teach us that the more we can remove emotions like rage or anger, limit our necessity for situational happiness, and choose simply to be a good person, the better we off we would find ourselves. And so, here we are: choosing to be our best version. Perhaps you’re a Visionary who has been missing (or having to perform as) an Integrator.

Learn Yourself and Others

There are a few ways your actions can set you apart. Be kind and courteous, obviously. But beyond that: learn how to deal with people better.
