    "While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their images with sheer, almost irrational force, I've found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition." (From the prologue)

Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

    In 2016, one of the giants of modern journalism fell: Gawker Media, infamous for saying what other outlets wouldn't say, was sued for publishing Hulk Hogan's sex tape, lost the case and went bust. After countless other lawsuits it seemed that Gawker had finally run out of luck. But luck had nothing to do with it. Peter Thiel, PayPal founder and billionaire investor, had masterminded the whole thing.

    "You’ve seen it all before. A malicious online rumor costs a company millions. A political sideshow derails the national news cycle and destroys a candidate. Some product or celebrity zooms from total obscurity to viral sensation. What you don’t know is that someone is responsible for all this. Usually, someone like me. I’m a media manipulator. In a world where blogs control and distort the news, my job is to control blogs—as much as any one person can."

    In 2007, a short blogpost by Gawker Media outed PayPal founder and billionaire investor Peter Thiel as gay. Thiel's sexuality had been known to close friends and family, but he didn't consider himself a public figure, and believed the information was private. This post would be the casus belli for a meticulously plotted conspiracy that would end nearly a decade later with a $140 million dollar judgment against Gawker and its bankruptcy. Only later would the world learn that Gawker's demise was not incidental - it had been masterminded by Thiel.

    Viele Menschen glauben, dass die Gründe, die sie daran hindern erfolgreich zu sein, in ihrer Umwelt zu finden sind. Aber in Wirklichkeit steckt der größte Feind in jedem von uns selbst: unser Ego. Es macht uns blind für unsere Fehler, verhindert, dass wir aus ihnen lernen, und hemmt unsere Entwicklung. Denn die wahre Herausforderung liegt darin, weniger Zeit in das Erzählen der eigenen Größe zu stecken und stattdessen die wirklich wichtigen Missionen des Lebens zu meistern.

    À travers les siècles, nombreux sont ceux qui ont recouru au stoïcisme pour surmonter leurs difficultés. Outre les Grecs et les Romains dans l'Antiquité, Frédéric le Grand, Michel de Montaigne, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Adam Smith et Théodore Roosevelt figuraient au rang des adeptes de cette école de pensée. Chaque année, l'ancien président américain Bill Clinton étudie les textes de l'empereur romain Marc Aurèle, philosophe stoïcien célèbre. De même, Wen Jiabao, ancien Premier ministre chinois, a lu ses "Pensées pour moi-même" "plus d'une centaine de fois".
