How often have you gotten some good or bad news and completely overreacted?
In hindsight, it wasn’t that big of a deal. You easily see how you could’ve calmly navigated a situation. Why can’t you think that way at the moment?
We are naturally emotional. For thousands of years, humans have struggled to think more rationally and less emotionally. And many leaders, politicians, and successful businessmen have found help in an ancient way of thinking: stoicism.
Stoicism has been guiding people through life since the days of ancient Greece. Contrary to popular belief, stoicism isn’t about being unfeeling and unemotional 24/7. It’s a versatile way of thinking that can enable you to tackle any problem in life.
That’s why we wrote Stoic Philosophy in a Nutshell. It’s an easily-applicable book teaching the history and principles of stoicism, and how you can use them in the modern world.
