Publisher's Summary

Do you want to be the best version of yourself?

Be honest. Have you ever had that feeling of emptiness that is created when you feel powerless after failing again and again in achieving the goals that you set?

If you have ever felt like this at least once in your life...I know exactly how you feel, you are not the only one who has thought about this.

Believe me, I tell you that I spent the nights wondering what I was doing wrong, if my life was doomed to failure and if only a few people had the "luck" to get incredible results both in terms of money and in terms of relationships with others.

Then, one day I knew what I had to do...

"What if these things aren't meant to be changed, but it's me the one who needs to change?"  

This thought emerged in me like a flooding river, and overwhelmed me with its strength as I was reading a book called Meditations by an emperor and stoic philosopher called Marcus Aurelius, who revealed to me this simple but incredible secret: 

To be successful in life, it is essential to master yourself and be able to control your emotions.

Now everything was clear!

Too many times I had made wrong choices because of my impulsiveness, too many times I let myself be conditioned by others, by their judgments, eclipsing myself.

But how did I manage to get more money, more friends and more peace of mind by applying stoicism to my life?

Well, sit down, because in this book I'll explain:

  • How to fight your damaging emotions to get peace of mind regardless of what happens to you.
  • The number one stoic method to develop your self-control and become an authority.
  • The infallible steps to develop a daily routine to accomplish all your goals.
  • How to handle people and develop magnetic empathy.
  • How to get rid of stress and anxiety.
  • How to apply the precepts of stoic philosophy to modern life with practical and immediate exercises.
  • And much more...

So, are you ready to take control of your life? If the answer is yes, listen now!

I love it.

Many books on Stoicism focus on the history of the philosophy and you are expected to derive your own method/rules that you can apply to your own life. This book is focused on giving these basic principles so that you can apply it today.

Not entirely convinced sorry!

I was curious so thought I’d give it a try. For me the author seems to dismiss the theological roots of Stoicism , stating quite simply that Christianity wiped it out (disregarding such facts such as early Christian monks copying the texts of Epicetius , and early stoic Christians). I am only half way through but so far it seems to me like the advice is wise , like living in the present, focusing on effort rather than outcomes, not dwelling in emotion and recognising when you get upset by things. But for me this has lacked somewhat, I get the same truths but with more depth and breadth and importantly more discussion on love during Sunday services and through reading the Bible.

Very practical tricks.

The book's message on how to lead a good and meaningful life. A very good introductory book to Stoicism. Will do is open to your eyes to what you can and cannot control in life and how you let those things affect your emotions.
