Rituals are essential

The Stoics believe you should start the day with a meditation of what’s to come and then you should end the day reflecting on what has happened and what can be improved.

Control what you can

Ignore the rest. We worry about things that we have no control over. But worrying never fixed anything

The stoics are saying that if you focus your energy on what you can change, you’re going to be a lot more productive and effective. 

A practical philosophical school

Stoicism became popular in the Roman Empire. Slaves like Epictetus, rich people like Seneca or emperors like Marcus Aurelius found guidance for life in it.

You have so much to learn from others

Seneca emphasized that we are free to choose our role models and mentors. This is great for helping you be your best. So next time you face a challenge, think of someone you admire and ask yourself “What would _____ do?” 

Accepting doesn't mean giving up

Stoicism is about accepting the facts as they are and then deciding what you’re going to do about them. Nobody recommends denial. Accept. And then do something

Events don’t upset you

Beliefs about events do. Bad feelings are caused by irrational beliefs, so if you’re feeling negative emotions, focus on the belief you hold about what happens. 

For stoics there is no good or bad, there’s only perception. And you control perception.
