Daily Reminders from Stoic Philosophy
"Control your perceptions. Direct your actions properly. Willingly accept what’s outside your control.”
- Ryan Holiday, The Daily Stoic
These are the three key things to remember about Stoic philosophy. Three things to guide us everyday.
You are in charge of how you see the world. How you react to events. To challenges. Do you see them as hopeless cases or do you see them as learning opportunities?
You are in charge of your actions. Don't act hastily and blindly. Think before doing. Be intentional.
You are not in charge of everything. And the only way to deal with that is to accept it. Focus your energy on things you can control.
