"You’re smart. You’re experienced. You’ve made a bunch of money. You have a few prestigious letters before or after your name. You’re a citizen of this country or that one. You’re got an impressive physique. You have a large following. We can start to feel pretty good about ourselves… and then life has a way of reminding us how meaningless these things really are. "Ryan explains how your personal attributes are less important than how you respond to life, 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.

"We’d like to think we are above being influenced by others, but of course that’s not true. We are shaped by the people we spend time with, and the examples we observe.

If you look out at the world right now, what you’ll see at first glance is a pretty terrible picture of desperation. Steep market declines. Fear. Panic. Unemployment. People in hospitals. Leaders who have fallen down on the job at every level of government, who actually feel no shame, saying things like, “I don't take responsibility at all.”But if you choose to be a bit more deliberate about how you look, you might see something else—a pretty amazing picture of dedication.Ryan describes why the way you choose to perceive things is so important 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.

"On this day of American Thanksgiving, we’re supposed to make time to give thanks, to actively think about that word which has become almost cliché in wellness circles: gratitude. But what is gratitude? Some people think of it as being thankful for all the good things you have in your life. Others see it as the act of acknowledging what people have done for you or what you appreciate about others. While the Stoics would have agreed that all of what those interpretations encompass is important, they practiced a slightly different form of gratitude."Find out what that different form of gratitude is, and how you can practice it, 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.

"If you’re not on guard, you’ll find yourself falling victim to the urge for just one more helping, or I’ve earned that treat.

"It’s ironic that today we celebrate the anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, because the entire conceit of Lincoln’s short, 271-word address was that people would little note nor remember what he was saying. What counted to Lincoln was what the soldiers had done. The full measure of their sacrifice, for freedom, to preserve the Union, was beyond anyone’s ability to add or subtract. The Stoics would have agreed with that sentiment. It’s a waste of time to talk about what a good man is like, Marcus Aurelius said, we just have to be one. So what, he asked, if people remember things you said while you were alive?

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

Also I thought the history of the term "politically correct" is highly relevant to a stoic. it was an allegation of going against ones participles for political expediency. (used by socialists against Communists who supported dictators).
