Day 38: Take On Stoic Philosophy

Key Component of the Cleanse

I am going through my 60-day wellness cleanse. Every day, I talk about something new including the components of my achievement program. Going live on Facebook and sharing what I am doing is a way to stay in touch with everyone. It motivates me to go ahead every single day. I want to thank you for all your support and for being there for me. Today, let’s cover a key component of the cleanse. Feel free to go through these blog posts to see other compelling posts on wellness and other components of the Achievement Program.

Philosophy is Real

You may find philosophy boring or hard to understand. But I believe all roads lead back to your philosophy in life. You can’t escape it… we all have one whether we like it or not. And if that’s the case, we might as well put forth our best effort here.

Philosophy doesn’t belong only to theoretical knowledge. Instead, it is related to your everyday life. It might not be apparent, but you always live your life by a philosophy. No matter what you do, everything is based upon the certain choices you make with a particular perspective on life, work, ethics, and morality. Just remember this equation… Best philosophy = Life lived to the fullest.

How Does A Good Philosophy Help You?

The new science of philosophy reveals that philosophy is the study of how an understanding creates the truth. It is present in our daily lives. It helps you in decision-making by developing a habit of critical thinking. This understanding of life empowered with knowledge leads you to enhanced intellectual, political, and social existence.

Stoic Philosophy

My go-to-philosophy is Stoicism. It is the philosophy of life, purely based on personal ethics, that maximizes positive vibes, reduces negative emotions, and helps you hone your virtues of character. The four virtues of stoicism include courage, temperance, justice, and wisdom. This philosophy makes you more resilient, more virtuous, happier, kinder, and wiser. It transforms you into a better person, both at the individual level and social level.

What you think about… You bring about!

Every day, I read The Daily Stoic from the bestselling author Ryan Holiday. The deep, meaningful insights those men gave years ago still hold true today. On each day Ryan presents a passage from one of the Stoics, followed by his interpretation to help simplify the meaning.

Here is the quote I read today on 9/16:

 “Success comes to the lowly and to the poorly talented, but the special characteristic of a great person is to triumph over the disasters and panics of human life.” — SENECA, ON PROVIDENCE, 4.1

Ryan Holiday writes in his explanation that anyone can get lucky, but not everyone can persevere. Perseverance is much more impressive and admirable than luck. I find it amazing because if you don’t see obstacles, you are living in oblivion. Life is all about finding the light when it’s darkness all around.
