“Success made Marcus Aurelius better. It seems to have made Seneca worse. Marcus turned to philosophy in his twenties, was first selected for the throne as a teenager, and fully inherited the throne at age 40. Despite the truism that absolute power corrupts absolutely, he somehow managed to not only maintain his philosophical principles from the throne, but seems to have taken the opportunity to become kinder, more reflective, more generous, and more open-minded the longer he was in power. ”Ryan discusses the impact that success has on character, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.***If you enjoyed this week’s podcast, we’d love for you to leave a review on Apple Podcasts.

“It’s hard not to read about Cato’s life and not be struck by how often the man stood alone. He stood alone as Quaestor, as he reformed Rome’s treasury.

“It’s easy to let self-importance set in. Look at the car they sent for you. Look at how big your office is. Look at all the people who report to you. Look at the awards you’ve won. Look at the recognition you’ve gotten. You’re a pillar of your community. You’re the best in your field.”Ryan discusses why we have to protect ourselves from the perils of ego, and reads The Daily Stoic’s entry of the day, on today’s Daily Stoic Podcast.This episode is also brought to you by LinkedIn Jobs.

Technical issue- I listen on Castbox and can't get this episode to play. The error said "broken source" so thought you should know. Thanks for the great content!

Christ was fully human and fully God. Not one or the other.

Short, to the point, and so true. The ego's constant desire to control the future and to fix the past keep us from the only time we have--now.

I started learning about stoicism and following this podcast in July. There is usually at least one good gem in every podcast but I truly loved the one with Jay Shetty. I found it really down to earth and inspiring.

Loved these interviews! I found them to be very accessible - great examples of how to put the philosophy into everyday practice/action.

As I enjoy both of your books, I am facinated by your limited comprehension of this dynamic. You both sound like two old tired liberals trying to explain why a significant portion of population reject liberal dogma. It absolutley can't be that that paradigm is just wrong its because of a magical self delusion or wait for it........cognitive dissonance. I am not sure if you could be any more intellectually dishonest . Have either of you ever had a job of responsibility? I have the feeling this is what it was like to listen Trotsky and Lenin having some beers. I would have thought both of you capable of more. Covid? BLM? The "facts" support either arguement and "reality" is subject to construction. By the way, after 30 years in the "game" I have NEVER a democrat who wasn't prepared to take a swan dive into the sewer. Stick to philosophy
