In this video we will talk about 3 rules of life that Marcus Aurelius thought were of the utmost importance to living a good life and how we can adapt them to work with our modern day lives. Aurelius was the emperor of Rome during the 2nd century A.D., and is said to be the last in a line of 5 good emperors known to have ruled Rome. Under his leadership, the empire was guided by virtue and wisdom. He was a student of Stoicism, a philosophy that emphasized fate, reason, and self-restraint. During his rule, the emperor constructed a series of autobiographical writings, now known as the Meditations.

So here are the three rules of life from the wisdom of Marcus Aurelius –
Rule 1. Always aim for pure judgment of events
Rule 2. Only desire what’s inside your control
Rule 3. Act for the common good

I hope you enjoyed watching the video and hope that these 3 rules will help you in your life.

Even though Marcus Aurelius wrote it 2,000 years ago — his insights on Stoicism still carry strong weight today. Stoicism is a school of Hellenistic philosophy founded by Zeno of Citium in Athens in the early 3rd century BC. Even though it is over 2000 years old, more and more people are discovering how Stoicism is not only relevant to modern times, but can be applied in very simple, yet strong ways.
