Publisher's Summary

Imagine how different your life would be if you knew practical ways to harness your emotions and thrive with the timeless philosophy of Stoicism.

Stoicism's ancient teachings are the very best playbook for adversity. Unlike many religious and new-age thinking methods, Stoic principles provide a clear road map on exactly “how” to think, not simply “what” to think, thus giving its practitioners methods to better deal with the misfortunes and hardships which come their way.

James Daugherty is an intelligence expert and former CIA spy who specializes in all forms of human behavior. But there’s one trait which is critical to a productive life, obtaining and retaining a pragmatic and stable mindset. A spy would be worthless without it.

Daugherty is a huge proponent of the Stoic philosophies, as a result of being exposed to highly stressful and testing situations over the years. A Stoic mindset is not a luxury for a field agent, but a necessity.

In this insightful second edition to the Stoicism series, Daugherty gives readers a firsthand look into:

  • Emotional intelligence & self-awareness models - setting the groundwork
  • Biochemistry of the brain - using neuroplasticity to rewire your thoughts
  • How to avoid negative visualization spirals at all costs!
  • Methods to deal with anger & grief - in the right way
  • The clever conflict resolution trick to cure internal dissonance
  • Breaking the cycle of problematic thinking with “Thought Pattern Interrupts”
  • Stoic mindfulness practices to quiet the mind
  • What the Old Zen Master can teach you about attaining ultimate balance

...and much more.
