Summary

Are you ready to learn all you need to know about the mindset & wisdom of ancient stoics? If yes, then you have come to the right place. With the help of this audiobook, you can learn more about stoicism, how to apply its values to your life, and how to make sure that you can live a life full of serenity and happiness!

It is a well-recorded trend that words are likely to develop different meanings in common modern use compared to those of their roots and how people "learn" to use them. This is twice true of philosophic ideas. The term "Epicurean", for example, has been transmuted from the very sober and rational teachings of the Greek philosopher Epicurus to the synonym of wanton pleasure-seeking and hedonism.

Stoicism has not undergone as extreme a distortion. Modern understanding of what it means to be stoic rarely displays any sort of overt emotion, whatever the circumstances, whether good or bad, and, indeed, has no emotion, whatsoever. The Vulcan race in the popular science fiction franchise Star Trek exemplifies the common concept. But it's easy to recognize the lack of outward emotion as not necessarily a good thing. It's possible, after all, for someone to have a silent, empty exterior and still scream inside. It is also less-than-ideal to have no internal feeling at all. How could one possibly enjoy life without emotion?

Feeling immune to the negatives and vicissitudes of life is something we can all benefit from. Our modern lives are so full of worries and problems, and harmony and satisfaction are something that most people try to find beyond themselves. Stoicism argues that these are things we can only learn from within ourselves, and it gives us the knowledge and the reasoning needed to build them up.

What this audiobook is going to do is bring the concept of stoicism to the average person and make a case for how it can significantly change our attitude and quality of life. Ask someone what they want in life, and chances are, a portion of them will say they want "inner peace". Some may think it's corny, but realistically speaking, you can never be happy if you don't feel at ease inside - and that's what stoicism is all about.

In this audiobook, you will find these chapters:

  • What Is Stoicism
  • The History of Stoicism
  • The Basic Tenets of Stoicism
  • Stoicism and the Modern World
  • The Stoic Mindset
  • The Stoic Free Will
  • How Stoics Deal with Emotions
  • The Key Teachings of Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius
  • How to Use Neuroplasticity to Learn the Stoic Virtue
  • How to Live as a Stoic
  • How to Use Stoic Affirmations
  • And much, much more...

Listen to this audiobook now, and change your life for the better!

A good introduction to stoicism!

The book gives you a good idea about what stoicism is and how to use it in daily life. A few of the chapter seems unnecessary or at least little bit odd, but it is still a good book.
