Finance Stoic 30 – Who is my role model?

Daily Stoic Quote 1

We can remove most sins if we have a witness standing by as we are about to go wrong. The soul should have someone it can respect, by whose example it can make its inner sanctum more inviolable. Happy is the person who can improve others, not only when present, but even when in their thoughts!

Seneca, Moral Letters, 11.9

Daily Stoic Question

Who is my role model? Why?

Daily Finance Stoic Response

My role model is me.

Not yesterday’s me.

Not today’s me.

The future me, the me that I want to be.

What does he look like and what does he say to me?

He embodies many of the characteristics I will acquire in the coming years:

  • Calm
  • Serene
  • Patient
  • Quiet
  • Wise
  • A better father
  • A better husband
  • Financially independent

Most importantly, because he’s financially independent, he’s pursuing his passions and dreams personally and financially.

How do intend to achieve this?

  1. I will incrementally improve each and every day
  2. I will set SMART goals and ensure that I measure them monthly

Who is your role model? What do you intend to achieve in the coming years?

Until next time,


Finance Stoic
