reduce your wants
Wanting more can quickly become a destructive habit. The key to living a happy and fulfilled life lies in wanting less.
When we practice the art of wanting less, we let go of our self-sabotaging patterns. We curb the cycle of incessant, futile greed and instead become grateful for what we already have.
Reduce your wants and choose a life of freedom, happiness and contentment.
As Epictetus instructs in Enchiridion, “Remember to conduct yourself in life as if at a banquet. As something being passed around comes to you, reach out your hand and take a moderate helping. Does it pass you by? Don’t stop it. It hasn’t yet come? Don’t burn in desire for it, but wait until it arrives in front of you. Act this way with children, a spouse, toward position, with wealth—one day it will make you worthy of a banquet with the gods.”
