Follow along with my personal daily stoic journal, unfiltered, unedited (except for some spelling mistakes).

Morning Reflection:

Overconfidence is rarely something I have been guilty of. In fact, I would propose I could do with some more self-confidence. Nevertheless, I am positive I can be arrogant and can be too domineering in a heated argument without considering how the other person might feel. That's what I want to prevent too.

Evening Reflection:

To combat the arrogance and faults of overconfidence I have attempted to adopt the student mindset. A student must learn and therefore doesn't know much, if you treat everyone as a mentor and teacher in life then it's difficult to be too sure of oneself, thinking I have all the answers.

Title prompts are taken from The Daily Stoic Journal by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman.
