Too much of a good thing is as bad for us as too little of a thing. Know and practice the art of moderation. Don’t be too serious nor too lighthearted. Don’t become enraged in response, nor become entirely disengaged. With conscientiously tempered moderation of your thoughts and actions, you will discover a higher level of wisdom in your course and the greatest level of satisfaction from the experience.
Keep your position in measure. Appreciate and be appreciated for doing things right the first time and with just the right amount of conviction. Accept the share that you have worked for. Expect nothing less than what you truly merit. There is a middle area to be sought somewhere between polar opposites that will suit you the best. Others grow to admire this as well and learn from it.
“It is the sign of a great mind to dislike greatness, and prefer things in measure to things in excess.” — Seneca the Younger —
