Summary

Do you ever feel like you aren’t in control of your emotions? Are you looking for moral guidance that can help you achieve the best for yourself? Then keep reading...

Whenever we ask ourselves how to face a challenge, or simply how to be happy, we are actually asking ourselves how to best lead our lives. But where can we find valid answers in today's world?

The answer surprisingly can be found in the teachings of the most famous ancient philosophers. 

Their philosophy, known as Stoicism, is a concept founded in ancient Athens that teaches to act on the basis of what is really under our control, and to have, as a wise stoic prayer said, "the serenity of accepting the things we cannot change, the courage to intervene on those we can change, and the wisdom to distinguish one from the other." 

Stoicism will teach you:

  • History of Stoicism philosophers: including Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and Epictetus
  • Modern Stoicism and general misconceptions about Stoicism
  • Discipline of action: right action, problem solving, pragmatism, and duty
  • Discipline of will: kindness and virtue, resilience and fortitude, armor fati and acceptance
  • Situational practices (pain management, emotional intelligence, behavior therapy)
  • Stoicism exercises/practices in everyday modern living

Stoicism is not that hard to learn.

The descriptions of the founding members of stoicism and the times in which they lived made the idea of stoicism reliable and accessible in the modern world.

This book is very inspiring and informative

I bought this book because I was curious about Stoicism but as a true beginner I did not want to be overloaded with too much at once.

Great Book

That was a very useful guidebook. I read some Stoicism book it's one of the best books. The author very clearly wrote this book. I have heard many self-help speakers and read many books. I had also heard a lot about Stoicism which from day one impacted me more than anything else in the past.
