Understanding the concept of the self
The importance of living in the present moment
The illusion of control
When another blames you or hates you, or when men say anything injurious about you, approach their poor souls, penetrate within, and see what kind of men they are. You will discover that there is no reason to be concerned that these men have this or that opinion about you.

Being liked by everyone or becoming popular on social media— these are “preferred indifferents.” They’d be nice to experience, but the absence of these experiences does not hinder our true ability to achieve happiness, at all.
Our obsession with others’ opinions of us likely stems from the brain’s tribal aged instincts— stuck in a point of evolution when disapproval could have meant abandonment, and abandonment could mean death.
What is to be prized? An audience clapping? No. No more than the clacking of their tongues. Which is all that public praise amounts to – a clacking of tongues.
It never ceases to amaze me: we all love ourselves more than other people, but care more about their opinion than our own.
Philosophy + spirituality
Stoic emperor Marcus Aurelius—despite being one of the most talked-about men in history—managed not to care what others may have thought of him.

Some are useful, and some are useless fears that you can't or shouldn't do anything about.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
