The 2,300-Year-Old Thought Framework for a Simple and Happy Life...

...and a clear-cut way to apply it every day

You don’t have to quit your job or become a monk.

Learning about this thought framework will only take 5 - 10 minutes each morning, and you can harness its power for the rest of the day.

As a matter of fact, this thought framework is so powerful it’s been used by:

  • Thomas Jefferson (3rd president of the United States)

  • Steve Jobs (Founder of Apple)

  • James “Mad Dog” Mattis (Military General)

  • Pete Carroll (Seattle Seahawks Coach)

  • Tim Ferriss (Entrepreneur and Author)

And you’re about to learn exactly what it is, as well as the simplest, most clear-cut way you can start using it in your life.

“I may wish to be free from torture, but if the time comes for me to endure it…”

“...I’ll wish to bear it courageously with bravery and honour.”

- Seneca

Thankfully, torture is something we don’t have to deal with. But, some days feel like torture, don’t they?

From the moment you wake up, you’re hit with a feeling of dread and a mental checklist of all the problems in your life.

Before you’re even out of bed, you’re wishing you were asleep again.

You might even think: How am I going to make it through today?

But is that any way to live life?

Another quote from Seneca:

“So it is: we are not given a short life but we make it short, and we are not ill-supplied but wasteful of it… Life is long if you know how to use it.”

It’s not that we don’t have enough time, it’s that we don’t use our time effectively.

And we don’t always know how to deal with the problems we’re faced with.

Okay, but what does this have to do with a 2,300-year-old thought framework?

Glad you asked.

This thought framework — this philosophy — you’re about to learn about will show you that (if you’re like most of us) the problems in your life aren’t the real problem.

The real problem is in the way you view what you think are problems.

By using this framework to transform the way you approach your problems, you can take control of your life and live more simply and happily.

How to Live a More Simple and Happy Life

The Stoic Philosophy (Stoicism) began in Athens in 3rd century B.C.

And it’s a bit odd to think that something that old would be able to help us solve problems in a world full of screens, meetings, calls, and other constant distractions.

Beyond that, it might be hard to imagine that a philosophy, of all things, would actually help us get anything done.

Isn’t philosophy just people sitting around doing nothing and thinking?

Not Stoicism.

Stoicism is the philosophy of people from all different walks of life:

Emperors, high-ranking politicians, and even slaves.

It’s not for people who want to “sit around and do nothing.”

It’s for the do-ers of the world. The people who take action. The people who want to live the best life possible.

The main idea behind Stoicism is this:

“The essential idea of Stoicism in my interpretation is, you don’t control the world around you, you control how you respond.”

- Ryan Holiday, Author of The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living

And there’s hardly anything that feels more out-of-control than the world we live in today.

So — what if you could embody this philosophy?

What if you could be largely unaffected by the craziness of the world around you, finding peace in even the most difficult of situations?

It would be pretty great to “be like the cliff against which the waves continually break; but it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it.” (Marcus Aurelius, Emperor of Rome and Stoic Philosopher)

But I’m guessing you don’t have the time to read hundreds of pages of philosophical text. To delve into dense reading material, parse out what’s important, and analyze how it applies to your life.

A Clear-Cut Way to Use Stoicism in Your Life

You need something quick, effective. Something efficient.

You can pick up the book while you’re drinking your morning coffee, learn exactly how to apply Stoic philosophy in your life for that day, and move forward with a strong foundation of mental clarity to tackle any challenge you might face.

Philosophy for People Who Take Action

NFL Coaches, Entrepreneurs, Presidents, Leaders.
