explains the ancient history

The book offers an introduction into stoicism, explains the history and the key thinkers behind the philosophy in case you want to investigate a little deeper in the future. The author summarizes a brief and clearly manner that we can learn from the principal Roman Stoic philosophers. The author deserves my utter praise for producing a book that brings to us all of the major stoic/ancient teachings and principles together in one brilliantly work. It sets out to remind us of how unpredictable the world can be. How brief our moment of life is. How to be steadfast, and strong, and in control of yourself.

serves as a reflection

The Daily Stoic isn’t simply a book to make me think, it’s an action guide, a “prescription for handling ourselves and our actions in the world. This book serves as a constant reminder to slow down and take some time to really focus on the most important things. Nurture what you are good at and you shall succeed. It's very simple and straight-to-the-point at the end of each chapter for reflection. The author is clearly a smart, logical individual who thinks carefully about what he says and explains what it is like to put his advice into practice. An amazing book which you will not regret to purchase!

Positive mind, Positive who will become.

Stoic thinkers and practitioners dedicated to becoming the best versions of themselves. No matter your age, sex, religion, or social status, you can build a stoic practice and build a better life for yourself. Like Marcus Arelius words " To live the good life: We have the potential for it. If we can learn to be indifferent to what makes no difference." This is how we can manage our selves into different ways it depends on our situation what things we can do to make possible that some people say its impossible.

the differences between indifferent to others

"never attribute to malice what can easily be attributed to stupidity" Meaning that most of the bad things people do are not done out of evil, but simple incompetence. Not everyone is as well- educated as you, not everyone was raised to be responsible like you were, not everyone is as talented as you, and it is in this gap that you can find the explanations to most errors, most bad driving, most the litter you see on the street, and most wrongs you feel have been done to you.

Brain Storming Activities

There is a part on this audiobook that really gave focus and made my self more Positive and saying to my self that its Yes! That’s right. On the part that narrator saying that "don’t said that you just read the books say it and show how it works and learned". I amazed on this lines, that showed the reality of life means that it doesn't how you been intelligent in the school, how you have great achievements during your early ages., the question is? have you been happy and enjoyed? did you really inspired of it reason of whom you are of today., In those thoughts it opens the mind of the listener that it doesn't matter how you saying that you knew a lot of things but you didn't know how to work and make it happen by your hands.

A window into stoicism

It gave me key principles on Stoicism, valuable approaches and techniques to continue searching and building a better way to live. Life doesn't have to be as hard as you make it, whatever your religious faith. Your life will be better by applying the stoic philosophy that is clearly expressed in this book. The author is overly analytical in the principles needed to have a stoic life and goes on to analyzing the advantages of having a philosophy of life.

Succinct and inspiring..

The book touched on the most important parts of Stoicism. It explained them clearly and concisely. The author gives a brief history of Stoicism, goes through some of the basic principles, then outlines how he applies this to his everyday life. I think this book did a fabulous job at explaining Stoic philosophy in a reasonably brief manner while giving practical tips on how to apply it to your own life every day.

Practicing Stoicism Daily

I find it funny sometimes how when I'm going through something the very question is about what I'm going through. And of course, many people—Stoic or otherwise—have fallen in love with and dedicated themselves to morning or evening journalism in the centuries since. And for good reason—it works. It clarifies the mind, provides room for quiet, private reflection and gives one a record of their thoughts over time. It is thought provoking, and despite having a collection of guided journals, I find this completely unique.

Simple and soul satisfying. Excellent resource for thought and personal growth! I’m not a religious man and minimally spiritual, but I reference this everyday and treat it like a bible. It’s the advice you never get/got in life and it’s not judgmental. I am so glad to find this audibook. It helped me a lot. Thank you!

This book will make you think and reflect.

Manageable, listenable and applicable to our modern lives. This is a wonderful book to take your daily dose of stoic philosophy. If you're looking for some help towards controlling anger or explosive reactions this is very helpful one. It's very insightful to start the day off with words of wisdom, perseverance, and the Art of Living.

Explores those teaching in an in-depth

While believing that moral goodness is necessary to achieve happiness is common ground, Stoicism goes deeper than that. One of the few regrets that I have had is that through Simple But Powerful Stoic Principles! I find myself listen and listen it again. This book is full of much important information. I definitely suggest this book to anyone who want a better.

Genuinely brilliant

I will listen to this daily. It's genuinely useful, practical and impactful wisdom. Brilliantly well researched and easy to use,
engage with and understand. It's a really great book. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a sense of clarity in their lives.Fantastic, inspirational and concise, this book is the perfect way of absorbing and putting into practice the teachings of some of the greatest philosophers to have lived. A great stand alone book but also really useful as a companion and Marcus Aurelius's Meditations. It neatly distills the most inspirational quotes from stoic literature and makes it to understandabke to all.From this audio book we can easily know about Meditation, Stoicism, Wisdom and Philosophy that can improve our mind and life.
