Summary

Have you ever thought you could reach the deep joy? Do you want the gift of serenity and contentment?

This is what Stoicism offers to you with its simple and practical message of self-discipline and mindfulness.

If you want to be inspired by the Stoic way of life as well as some of history’s greatest leaders, thinkers, and innovators, then keep listening...

Almost forgotten for centuries, Stoicism has come back to life in recent years as a practical philosophy for everyone from Silicon Valley tech entrepreneurs and NFL players to leaders in business, politics, and the military. Just like the great Stoics of ancient times, today’s leaders turn to Stoicism to learn how to rise above obstacles and develop a mindset of unshakeable strength and determination.

This audiobook will teach you the Stoic secret to happiness and true success. 

You will learn:

  • Why focusing on the things under your control can give you freedom 
  • How to stop suffering from anxiety about your career, relationships, and health 
  • Simple tips to lead others effectively 
  • The four emotional habits that cause unhappiness and how to recognize them 
  • How to live with self-discipline and personal dignity
  • How to get over feelings of regret, disappointment, and jealousy 
  • The best strategy to remain untroubled 
  • Some practices to feel happy, energized, and content 
  • A lot of inspirational quotes from the great Stoic philosophers

Even if you've never heard of Stoicism and you've never tried to approach an ancient philosophy, this guide is may be for you the best choice because it is filled with practical examples and simple tips.

Wonderful audiobook

Stoicism that focus on one thing or water down the message and ideals of Stoicism and this audiobook is not like that! It shares the important points in a trough and efficient manner and i will definitely recommend this audiobook to those who are interested in this philosophy that I have become very passionate about so they can at least gain a better understanding without having to read all the books I am reading and this is an in-depth introduction that will leave you with a solid foundation which you can then use to continue your pursuit of understanding the Stoic ideals.
