A Way of Life

You will be able to find a lot more happiness when you have turned your emotions around, and you hold the right mindset, and this helps you to enjoy a pleasant and calm disposition to all the things that come into your life, no matter how bad the situation may be.

However, this does not mean that when you meet a Stoic, they are going to be egotistical all of the time. Yes, they want to increase their own happiness in life, and they want to be able to learn to control their own inner lives, but they also want to make sure that everyone else they meet will be able to do that as well. And one of the best ways that a Stoic can accomplish this is by helping out those in their lives as well.

The good news is that you will be able to find a lot of o times in your life where you can add in some more virtue. For example, if there is some adversity that is going on around you, you can learn how to not be egged into the situation. You can learn how to be generous to others, giving up your time to help them out when you can.

Brilliant job

The best single book ever written about Stoicism. That is what I've concluded after spending much time with it and comparing it to all others I know. The writing and execution of this are at a higher level than the rest. It organizes the philosophy into The origins of Stoicism, Stoic mindfulness, How to handle revenge, The importance of emotions and much more. starting with the most basic. The chapters show what the Stoics said on each of the topics and how their ideas are discussed by other philosophers later. I know no other book that gets so much of what the Stoics thought into one place or makes it so clear. The author's discussions are also intelligent and beautifully written. The way this book explains Stoicism is the way I think about it now.
When I've wanted to give somebody a book about Stoic philosophy, I usually have gone with something by Epictetus. Now I will give them this. Anyone interested in Stoicism will want to have it. Few books about anything contain so much wisdom or are as interesting from start to end.

Virtuous Living through Principles

If you would like to become more stoic, you need to learn how to get some more of this mindfulness into your life. This does not need to be something special, and you will not even need to go out and get some new stuff to place in your home to make this happen, but you will need to make this a part of your routine and do some practice to get some of the results that you are looking for with mindfulness.

To start, you need to learn to observe the present moment. Stop whatever you are doing and just be mindful of what is going on in the world around you. You are going to pay attention to that activity. Even if it is something as simple as washing the dishes, being present in the moment, noticing the dish in your hand, the feel of the water when you grab another dish, and how they feel when they are all clean, can all help to bring more to your session of mindfulness. You would be surprised at how amazing it can be to bring some more mindfulness into your life when you take things slowly and learn how to make them into things that are fantastic.

Being mindful is one of the best things that you do in your life. If you are not able to sit back and learn how to bring some mindfulness into your day, you are really missing out on the little things in life. The big events can be nice, but if you are focusing all of your energy on those, you are going to give them more control over your life than you should. On the other hand, working with the little things, and appreciating all the things that you have in life can help you to be more stoic.

Amazing Voice - Amazing Philosophy

We need to learn how to let go of the anger or the frustration that we are having with other people or learn how to let those negative people go out of our lives because all of this is really out of our control. It is better to focus on the good and to learn how to let in some more good energy to every part of our lives. Of course, there are going to be times when troubles will come up, and they will bother us on occasion. We cannot control when or how often these things come into our lives, but what we can control is how much we end up getting worked up about them. If you are successful with keeping your emotions collected and calm, you will actually improve your odds of winning, and the issue is not going to bother you that much. It is going to be difficult at times, but it will really make you so much happier if you can do this. It would be nice if there were some way to avoid some of the adversity that is going on in life around you. It would be nice t become a Stoic and know that all of the issues in your world would just disappear on you one day. But this is not true, and you just cannot control the amount or the type of adversity that hits you in your life. Adversity is always going to hit you, and it really does not matter what kind of philosophy you decide to follow at the time.

Fantastic Analysis of Stoicism

I am 53 year old single mother, raising two teenagers and helping run a family business. My husband died unexpectedly of a heart attack 4 years ago, and I have been grappling with the meaning of life since it happened. Through my studies of philosophy, I discovered Stoicism: Bible of 3 Books in 1 by Daniel Pratt. This book is a perfect companion piece to Mr. Pratt's work. It discusses how to systematically apply Stoicism to your life - I love the part about obtaining peace of mind when you know you have done your best effort. A must read, I have also purchased both paperback and Kindle. It can change you life for less than $15.

Very Useful Read on Stoicism

The course in itself is really interesting, the philosophical contents are amazingly applied to real situations, and can give you some great insights about how to work on yourself from now on. The final portion of it all may sound a little too generical, but that`s the point of an overview I believe. Overall, it's an excellent course, definitely worthy!

Perfectly organized outline of Stoicism

A very good overview of stoic philosophy drawing upon many sources beyond Athens, Greece, by Zeno of Citium. Presents stoicism for what it is: a way of thinking; a way to live your life; an ideal to try for. Stoicism is not for everyone and you can apply as much of it, if at all, to your life as you think appropriate. Having said that, I believe everyone can benefit from most stoic principles and I would recommend this book to any and everyone.

Amazing content

Spending time on mindfulness should be one of your top priorities when it comes to working on stoicism. It will assist you with encountering things in your day-to-day existence in a totally different manner, without causing you to get excessively joined to the various things and feelings that are attempting to control you. Work on this for quite a while, and be delicate without judgment, and you will see that it tends to be not difficult to see the value in the seemingly insignificant details in your day-to-day existence, as opposed to allowing everything to control you.

Clear and concise

Rather than allowing your emotions to be controlled by the events around you, you must learn to control your own emotions. Understanding emotions is one of the most effective strategies to learn how to control them. When you understand why you are reacting emotionally to a circumstance, it might sometimes feel ridiculous, as if the situation will go away on its own.

Terrific introduction

This book is a terrific introduction to Stoicism for anyone new to the subject, as well as an excellent manual for anyone who is already familiar with the way of thinking. It's also a fantastic alternative for anyone who simply wants to work on themselves and modify their perspective.

A Go To Stoic Book

There are a lot of parallels to Boodahism and the Voluntaryist lifestyle which I live (do no harm to others and don't steal).

Really useful

I think this book is short enough to help you decide if you're "into" it or not, and well written enough that someone intelligent enough to have an interest in stoicism can follow it.
