Summary

Do you often feel like you’re a slave to your emotions? Do you feel like you’ve lost sight of your goals, distracted by bad habits that have taken you off-path from your ideal life? Then you need to keep reading....

The Ancient Greco-Roman philosophy of Stoicism, hailing from 300 B.C, believes that the path to happiness lies in the freedom from our emotions. To not be controlled by each thought and feeling, and accept each moment with self-awareness is to align ourselves with the natural order of the universe, and find complete fulfillment. Even today, millenniums after his death, his teachings are followed globally as a means to end all needless suffering and connect to a deeper life purpose.

In Stoicism in Modern Life, you’ll discover:

  • The secrets to instantly mastering your emotions (You’ll navigate any situation life throws at you with reason and dignity!)
  • The vital tools needed to build mental toughness and overcome any challenge without feeling defeated or overwhelmed.
  • Fourteen genius ways to apply Stoic wisdom to your daily life and rise above the negativity of modern culture now.
  • Three tricks to remaining mentally strong, even during times of intense stress.
  • Little-known ways to declutter your mind, gain mental clarity and find better solutions to your problems.
  • How to stop reliving the past and finally align yourself with your goals.
  • Daily mindfulness practices to cultivate self-awareness and eliminate all unnecessary suffering.
  • Ground-breaking methods to take back control of your emotions, your mind, and your life (Use your regained power to manifest the reality you most desire!)
  • And much, much more... 

Even if you currently feel that your emotions and habits are too all-consuming, or like you’ve already tried everything to improve, the extensive research behind this guide will help you cultivate emotional mastery, strong mental resilience, unflinching self-discipline, astute self-awareness, and the general strength of mind to overcome any emotional or mental hurdle.

By relying on the expert research behind Stoicism in Modern Life, you’ll immediately recognize the mistakes that result in your extended suffering and how to use the Marcus Aurelius mindset to free yourself from the shackles of modern-day negativities.

If you want to access this ancient wisdom and expert advice, and finally manifest the best version of yourself and your life, then you should listen to this audiobook!

I can say that wonderful audiobook

I can say that it was more useful than the course as we had never talked about implementing ancient way of thinking in modern society as this is something well.

I would recommend to everyone

I would recommend to everyone interested in learning about this seemingly smart way to live. I felt that this audiobook contains a rich core, bookended by some boring and repetitive parts.

Stoicism explained its really helpful

I ran across this the other day and I decided to give it a quick listen. Some readers can be off put by the author's presentation of stoicism as a religion rather than purely as a philosophy.

A good piece of advice

This book covers stoicism, but puts a modern flavor on it by using applications found in heroes in a context closer to the present. It is instead a very good set of practical, rational, realist advice for everyday life that is up to you to put into practice.

Stoicism is not that hard to learn.

When thinking in terms of philosophy stoicism should come to mind. A very down to earth overview of Stoicism and the practice thereof for the modern fast paced liver of the human life. A good read. Compliments a host of other books on stoicism.

Great book

Very thorough book on stoicism that seemed a bit long-winded at times. Regardless it's a great listener for those looking to get just one book on the subject.
