Are you unemotional, indifferent, and resigned to individuals that have conversations with you? Are you unfettered and calm when things don't happen the way you think they should? If you answered yes to both questions then congratulations! That's great because that means you are a true stoic.
And if you answered no, don't worry. In this episode, I talk about what being stoic is all about. Who started the stoic movement and philosophy? Is being stoic considered negative? I'll let you decide.
Stoicism, in a nutshell, is a crafty way of being unflappable, productive and, in control. But there's so much more to stoicism and once you master all that it encompasses, you won't ever want to change.
After this episode, with only a few tools in your "stoic toolbox", you'll be well on your way to having a better more purposeful life. Who doesn't want that!

*And no matter what, always remember what I've always said about this world, "Everything has to do with Everything." The simplest innocuous activity you do will affect another person, and maybe that other person is across the street, in another city, on the other side of the globe, OR not even born yet.
