Contentment and being self-sufficient is about focussing your time and energy on things that you do something about.
You are responsible for the things you can impact; all the other things are beyond your control.

In this age of shortcuts and instant results, go for the old way of working hard, manually.
Let go of relaxing or delegating and choose to dive into the task yourself.
The more you push yourself, the more opportunities open up in front of you, due to the connections between your various interests.
You will be then able to view and assess things with a new perspective, identify your shortcomings and provide a richer solution to your problems.
Stay silent and humble, even if you don't find any external recognition.
Being a showoff or looking for validation is not going to be of any use in the long run.
Stoicism is essentially about assigning things their proper, real value. It identifies what is in our control, and what is beyond us, in our lives.
Stoic virtues of moderation, wisdom, courage, and contentment are evident in the principle of Self-sufficiency.
Identify what's in your control, what's beyond, and what is in between.
Those things which are in your control should be a priority, and where you should put your time and energy.
This makes you self-aware and creates space to process and think about what is meaningful and what to avoid absorbing.

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
