Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

Where can you find joy? What's the true measure of success? How should we manage anger? Find meaning? Conquer grief? The answers to these questions and more lie at the heart of Stoic philosophy. The Daily Stoic is a compelling, accessible guide to living a good life, offering daily doses of this classic wisdom.


Long the secret weapon of history's great figures, from emperors to artists and activists to fighter pilots, the principles of Stoicism have shone brightly through the centuries as a philosophy for doers. Tested in the laboratory of human experience over the last two thousand years, this timeless knowledge is essential to navigating the complexities of modern life.


The Daily Stoic offers a daily devotional of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, and the slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus, as well as diamonds like Zeno, Cleanthes and Musonius Rufus. On each page, one for every day of the year, you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations, as well as historical anecdotes and provocative commentary to help you tackle any problem or approach any goal. By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.

5.0 van 5 sterren A Prescription for Better Living 18 oktober 2016
door Dawn Casey Rowe - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
I grew up with my mom’s daily meditation book on an end table in our living room. The spine was broken, pages browned, a tasseled bookmark showed the date as reliably as my iPhone. She still reads it every day.

"The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Daily Living" is the meditation book my son will remember, the one I'll read every day. It's now on my end table with a red ribbon marking the season.

The Daily Stoic isn’t simply a book to make me think, it’s an action guide, a “prescription for handling ourselves and our actions in the world.” The great Stoics remind me never to be satisfied with learning--I must always be doing. In order to lead a successful life, I must practice cutting through distractions and desires to get to things that matter.

That’s the only way to become a better human being. That’s the call to action I’m getting from this book--you will, too.

In "The Daily Stoic," Stephen Hanselman and Ryan Holiday have curated works by the great Stoic philosophers--Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, weaving in modern thinkers and situations I can use immediately. Each month has a specific theme such as clarity, right action, duty, awareness, and problem solving. Lessons build on prior themes, creating an easy-to-use teaching tool out of philosophers that can often be overwhelming.

I love this book for its excellent translations and applicable life lessons. Each meditation has just enough to challenge me and help me feel I can put the thoughts into action today.

Ryan Holiday is a best-selling author (“Trust Me I’m Lying,” “Ego is the Enemy,” “The Obstacle is the Way”) and a blogger. He brands himself as someone focused on life, dealing with idiots, how to be self-critical and self-aware, humility, philosophy, reading and strategy.

I became aware of Holliday when I read and reviewed his thoughtful and helpful book “The Obstacle is the Way.” It is a book about stoicism, the ancient Greek philosophy and its principles, which has sold more than 100,000 copies and has been translated into 17 languages. Stoicism is an ancient Hellenistic philosophic school founded in Athens that promoted the daily management of self. It teaches 1) that virtue, the highest good, is based on knowledge, and 2) that the wise live in harmony with the divine Reason (also identified with Fate and Providence) that governs nature. These principles are indifferent to the vicissitudes of fortune and to pleasure and pain.

Some will be familiar to readers, others will not:

o Seize life and take advantage of it.
o If you seek tranquility, do less.
o It can ruin your life only if it ruined your character. Otherwise, it cannot harm you – inside or out.
o Do what we can, endure and bear what we must.
o None of what we do lasts, no matter how clever or brilliant.
o So if we throw out other people’s recognition, what is left for us to prize?

Stoics include Marcus Aurelius, Cicero, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Viktor Frankle, Ruben Carter, Ulysses S Grant, Thomas Jefferson, Napoleon, Churchill, Steve Jobs, Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll, Cub’s Manager Joe Maddon, and thousands more.

“Stoicism as a philosophy is really about the mental game,” Holiday says. “It is not a set of ethics or principles. It is a collection of spiritual exercises designed to help people through the difficulty of life by managing emotion; specifically, non-helpful emotion.”

In “Daily Stoic,” Holiday provides 366 daily meditations on wisdom, perseverance, and the art of living. He provides a year of quotations and life lessons drawn from the three great Stoic sages -Seneca the Younger, Epictetus (a freed slave) and Emperor Marcus Aurelius. The meditations are organized under three primary topics (similar to those in “The Obstacle is…”) “The Discipline of Perception,” “The Discipline of Action,” and the “Discipline of Will.” Each topic is further divided into monthly themes: “Clarity,” “Passions and Emotions,” “Awareness,” “Unbiased Thought,” “Right Action,” “Problem Solving,” “Duty”“Pragmatism,” “Fortitude and Resilience,” “Virtue and Kindness,” “Acceptance,” and “Meditations on Mortality.”

Paul Tillich noted that Stoicism is “the only real alternative to Christianity in the Western world.” It came to many of the same conclusions about how to think and live. Both are characterized by:

 An emphasis on hardship.
 A sense of man’s depravity and a constant self-examination
 An inner freedom from the world.
 An aversion to excess.

The goal of Stoicism is to attain inner peace. The meditations of the “Daily Stoic” can be a help in overcoming adversity, practicing self-control, being conscious of our impulses, realizing how short life is and making the most of it. The principles within Stoicism are, perhaps, the most relevant and practical sets of rules for those who choose to embrace the obstacles of life. They are the tools that are immediately practical to our current endeavors.

Thought-provoking, soul-searching exercises are included with each daily meditation. “The Daily Stoic” is an excellent way to begin or end each day.

5.0 van 5 sterren Stoicism for everyday life 12 februari 2017
door Mitch Fowler - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
The Daily Stoic does exactly what intends to do, and that is to guide you through life’s daily troubles.

Summary
For those who want to get to the point, this is a good book. If you want to become more resilient against life’s obstacles, you should buy this book.

• Who should read this book: This is a book for someone who wants to become more “thick-skinned” in life, but also do the right thing. If you want to become someone who never flinches towards adversity, this is the book for you.

• Format: Well designed. Each page corresponds to a date on the calendar, so each day comes with a new meditation. You never need to read more than one page a day

• Content: Each page starts with a relevant topic for any stoic. A related quote soon follows. Much of the page is dedicated to the authors explanation of the quote in everyday terms.

• Impact: While the book won’t internalize it for you, it will tell you what you need to do to persevere through life’s challenges.

Detailed Review

Who should read this book
This book is useful to everyone, because everyone faces challenges in life. This book is meant to help you through these challenges. While it won’t solve your problems for you, it will give you guidance, but also the fortitude to face them. You can be someone can’t seem to get a break, or you can have your entire life under control. Either way, this book will toughen you up to become a master of your own life.

Format
This book isn’t made to be read in one sitting. Consider it more of a calendar in book form. The authors named it well since it truly is meant to be read daily. It might be daunting to read something every day, but it’s not. You will be able to read it in less than five minutes, but will give you something to think about for the rest of the day.

Content
I’ll use the page of February 8th as an example. A title like “Did that make you feel better?” follows a calendar date on each page, in this case, February 8th. A related quote soon follows from a famous stoic, dating anywhere from Ancient times to modernity. This specific date has a quote from the Roman philosopher Seneca. The rest of the page is dedicated towards the authors views on the previous material. While it’s not as quotable as, well, the quote, it does give insight to the layman about these seemingly archaic views. This date, the author talks about how reacting extremely to a terrible situation will not solve said situation. It is better to remain calm in the face of adversity, so a clear head can be kept to make better decisions. Every day in the calendar year has something to offer to the would-be stoic.

Impact
This is the trickiest subject, but not at the fault of the book. The book has all the material necessary to change your life, but it can’t be accomplished without you, the reader, internalizing the lessons taught. If you do internalize it, then you will face life as a stoic.

Final Verdict
Buy this book, it’s well put together and has useful information for everybody.

I have read over 100 books in the last 18 months. All of Ryan Holiday's books are must reads. What I love about The Daily Stoic is that it is not only a book, but a daily road map to help one live a virtuos life on a daily basis. Do yourself a favor ASAP and purchase this book. It will change your life.

Geverifieerde aankoop
In the interests of full disclosure, I haven't read the entire book, since it is formatted as a daily devotional reading, rather than a chapter to chapter offering. Having read the wonderful introduction, I selected some random portions for review and started with October, bringing myself up to date. The selection of Stoic verses is apt, and the book sticks to broad and cohesive themes throughout each month such as Virtue, Courage and Acceptance. It's not the translations that are important (I am not a linguist and they seem fine to me), but rather the guidance offered by the authors in putting the principles into practice. I don't often make reading recommendations to my college-aged children, but I'm going to strongly encourage them to read this book. It's a certain antidote to today's Outraged Victim Morality. If we all adopted a more Stoic philosophy, the world would be a kinder, gentler and more fulfilling place.
