Stoic Philosophy

Stoicism has been a common thread though some of history’s great leaders. It has been practiced by Kings, presidents, artists, writers and entrepreneurs. Marcus Aurelius. Frederick the Great, Montaigne, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Theodore Roosevelt, General James Mattis, —just to name a few—were all influenced by Stoic philosophy.  From The Daily Stoic

I mentioned The Daily Stoic in my ramblings and I would highly encourage you to dig deep into this website for a full back history of Stoic Philosophy and the stories of the famous philosophers who we now utilize in our meditations.

366 Meditations Book

A great book that I have personally used over the years is 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.

The Daily Stoic offers 366 days of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, or slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus, as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year you’ll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations, as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms.

By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you’ll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.

  1. Our Judgments About Reality Are More Harmful than Reality Itself. Be conscious of your perceptions and judgments about a negative situation. Don’t force your perceptions to be positive, but tyr to make them 15% less negative than they are
  2. Remember To Bring Your Attention To the Things That You Do. Remember to live. If you become aware you’re living on autopilot and only reacting to life, bring your attention to the things that you do.
  3. If An Obstacle Gets in The Way It Doesn’t Mean You Should Quit. An obstacle doesn’t mean you should give up. Instead, it’s a sign that you’re on the right path and you need to continue.
  4. Learn To Embrace Your Weirdness and Accept Yourself. Embrace your weirdness. Don’t stop caring about what other people think, but realize it’s more important and easier to accept yourself rather than crave acceptance from others.
