Publisher's Summary

Stoicism may be an ancient philosophy, but it is one that has even more relevance to our daily lives now that we are in the modern world. Too often we find that we aren't able to control our lives, control the events that go on, or even control the people and how they act. But with stoicism, we learn that we can control some things, such as our emotions and our reactions, and this can help to lead us to happiness.

In this guidebook we are going to learn the basics of using stoicism in your daily life and how this ancient philosophy is going to work to make you feel happier. Some of the things that we will talk about include:

  • What is stoicism
  • Recognizing the things that are under your control
  • How to conform to your own reality
  • Understanding how your emotions work
  • The importance of freedom of will.
  • Learning how to be calm when there is adversity around
  • Learning how to make the best of all situations
  • How to use stoicism in order to make your life better
  • How to use the process of neuroplasticity to change around your mind and how you react to things
  • How to use affirmations to help with stoicism
  • Simple ideas to implement some of the stoic philosophy into your daily life

When you are ready to find the true happiness that belongs to you and bring some of the stoic ideas into your life, make sure to listen to this guidebook and learn just how great it can be to live the stoic way of life.

Start living the stoic life today.

    "Repetitive and Not Specific"

    The author doesn't teach very well. Instead, the book just repeats how nice things will be if one could be the masters of one's emotions and become a stoic. I'm left with the impression that this book is just a commercial for a subsequent book.

    This book will help you learn and understand about Stoicism. You will be able to know its meaning and an introduction to the Stoic way of life. I thought its going to be hard for me to understand this book but with my surprise this was written in a simple way for better understanding.

    "Interesting Book!!!"

    A good historical epic acquainting us with the birth of the ancient philosophy of Stoicism, through which possible control of their emotions, thereby achieving a certain step from the current world order of total control and restrictions of free will. Controlling yourself in the author's opinion is an important step towards understanding the true destiny of man and achieving real happiness. I recommend.

    "Great informative book"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stoicism?

    This book conveys a fantastic approach to see the world in an unexpected way. Purchase this book and help yourself escape your own particular manner; help yourself expel indiscreet and enthusiastic responses, and help yourself understand the considerable potential that exists in all of us.It is as a lifestyle.


    If you could give Stoicism a new subtitle, what would it be?

    This title is very good.


    Any additional comments?

    It is somewhat hard to comprehend Stoicism at first and with the end goal for us to comprehend it completely we can re-listen the book again or make it as a practice to take after what Stoicism shows.Recommended.
