It was the great Athenian leader, Pericles, who said that there was nothing wrong with poverty. It could be caused by so many things—a business failure, the sudden loss of a family's breadwinner, theft, even just plain old back luck.

We often focus on the so called “cardinal virtues” of Stoicism – justice, wisdom, courage and temperance, but there are actually many virtues in Stoicism. The cardinal virtues are called as such because they are the virtues that all of the others hinge upon. They are pure – they are never bad. For example, courage is never bad (though sometimes courage entails retreating if it's wise). Another virtue that's brought up often in religious circles is generosity. So is generosity a virtue that we should aim for as Stoics?

How much is the value of time really worth? Carl Sandburg said, “Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.” In this Momentum Friday episode from the Passion Struck podcast, I tackle the value of time. I examine this by studying wisdom from the stoics on the topic and using ten of their mantras for managing time. Members of the Passion Struck community have asked questions like, "Why do I always feel there aren't there enough hours in the day to do the things I want to do?", "Why do I keep procrastinating?", "Why do I waste my time doing frivolous things?", Why am I constantly dissatisfied with where my life is going?" and many other similar questions. This episode is dedicated to answering them. This episode tackles how to figure out what your time is worth and use that information to spend your time more effectively. Learning how to get the most out of your time starts with knowing exactly what your time is worth. --► Get the full show notes: https://passionstruck.com/loneliness-is-not-a-joke-here-are-10-ways-to-deal-with-it/  --► Subscribe to My YouTube Channel Here: https://www.youtube.com/c/JohnRMiles --► Subscribe to the podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/passion-struck-with-john-r-miles/id1553279283 *Our Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/passionstruck.

Despite the rampant success of books like Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, intellectual circles tend to look down on anything that sells itself as self-help. And yet, in a certain light, the most original form of self-help might actually be philosophy—an older and more respected genre, even, than the novel. So this week, we're going back to the past and asking that old chestnut: what is a meaningful life? The Stoics are awfully popular these days, but the philosopher Catherine Wilson joins us this episode to pitch a different kind of Greek: Epicurus, whose teachings live on most fully in Lucretius's On the Nature of Things. For a few centuries, Epicurus was wrongly remembered as the patron saint of whoremongers and drunkards, but he really wasn't: his philosophy is rich with theories of justice, empiricism, pleasure, prudence, and equality (Epicurus, unlike the Stoics, welcomed women and slaves into his school). Epicureanism advocated for a simple life, something that appeals to more and more people today with the return to artisan crafts, self-sufficiency, and, yes, the KonMari method.Go beyond the episode:Catherine Wilson's How to Be an EpicureanRead A.

Nietzsche exclaimed in 1882 that “God is dead”. He wasn't celebrating this fact; he was actually disheartened by it. He was critical of, well, every philosophy, really, including the Christians, and even the Stoics. And though I don't agree with everything Nietzsche has proposed, he does seem to be right about one thing: the death of God as an idea, a construct, would send humanity into a massive conundrum - essentially, the question of: is life worth living?

In this episode, we look back at some of the incredible authors who are changing the game in human understanding. Joey Coleman explains how client experience directly affects the bottom line. When the only way out is through, Ryan Holiday offers sage wisdom on perseverance and resilience. Winning is hard, and Tim Grover reveals the true costs of glory. Caring personally and challenging directly is a false dichotomy that Kim Scott reasons, once overcome, can lead to a stronger workplace. 24/7, 365 Your firm — regardless of size — faces monumental competition. Not from other attorneys or multi-state firms that dominate traditional media. No, your competition is larger: Apple. Amazon. Netflix. The seamless user experience that delivers goods and services on demand has become the standard for quality customer service.  To help level the playing field, client experience expert Joey Coleman suggests: Make a named partner responsible for the client experience. Weave it into the culture of the firm, and put weight behind it. When you put time and resources behind the initiative, you just might be surprised by how many employees come out of the woodwork to help. Move Forward Life is filled with inevitable obstacles, where choice lies is in the response. Perception guides the right action. Renowned media strategist and best-selling author Ryan Holiday has spent decades examining Stoics like Marcus Aurelius and Seneca to understand where the rubber of philosophy meets the road of life — and how we can apply ancient teachings to modern problems.  When faced with seemingly insurmountable problems, seek clarity through distance. Problems are hard when they are up close and personal. Ask what you would tell a friend in your position. Often, all that is required is the very next choice — a singular action — to move the ball forward. Triumph No external motivation can beat the internal drive to win. True competitors understand that the path is hard, unpolished, and often fleeting. At the end of the road, the win is not guaranteed. But as is in litigation and pro-level sports, determination requires internal accountability that can not be purchased.  This level of intensity is what has set Tim Grover and the athletes he works with apart — legends like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, and hundreds of Olympic athletes. In deciding to break from the pack, pull away, and win — you get to decide what that looks like. Radical Candor Praise in public. Criticize in private. How we give and receive feedback has the power to improve the health of our law firm. We often want to avoid the sting of criticism and keep from hurting the feelings of others, but frank conversations on performance and improvement, done with compassion, benefit both the individual and the organization.  Kim Scott has led teams at Google and Apple. For her, the essence of being a good boss is rooted in being human. Hold a conversation that accounts for the other person's reaction to the feedback. "Feedback is measured not at your mouth, but at the other person's ear." - Kim Scott Links & Resources The Game Changing Attorney Podcast Michael Mogill Facebook Michael Mogill Twitter Michael Mogill Instagram Michael Mogill LinkedIn Crisp Website Crisp Facebook Crisp Twitter Crisp Instagram Crisp LinkedIn Joey Coleman - Episode 18 of The Game Changing Attorney Podcast Ryan Holiday - Episode 53 of The Game Changing Attorney Podcast Tim Grover - Episode 71 of The Game Changing Attorney Podcast Kim Scott - Episode 25 of The Game Changing Attorney Podcast Author Michael Mogill, Crisp, Joey Coleman, Ryan Holiday, Tim Grover & Kim Scott

The Way of the Warrior is found in death and it eventually comes for everyone. This is why The Stoics used the phrase ‘memento mori' to keep the inevitability of death present in mind. An awareness of death reminds us to appreciate life, to be careful in small matters, and recognize that our time on earth is limited and, therefore, precious. Learning to deal with the inevitability of death, loss, and other forms of suffering is a skill that must be cultivated, particularly by those that consider themselves warriors. The mindfulness faculties acquired by accepting death yield powers useful in every area of life. In this interview conducted by the Death Dhamma Podcast we explore specific mindfulness techniques for skillfully processing our experiences of loss, suffering, and trauma.

On this encore episode of the Psychology Talk Podcast Dr. Hoye interviews Dr. Jia Gottlieb, M.D. about his new book, "Aah…The Pleasure Book." Dr. Hoye and Dr. Jia discuss the concept of pleasure from an Epicurean perspective. They dive deep into the issue of pleasure having been placed on the back burner, so to speak, culturally for 1600 years. Dr. Jia spells out how pleasure drives us towards curiosity in life and discovery of the mysteries of the universe. They discuss the neurology of pleasure in the three basic structures of the brain, and how they can be mapped into a four-stage model of pleasure.The control of pleasure is all around us: our reward systems of our brains these having been relegated to the click of a mouse of a “like” on social media platforms, and by hierarchical structures misleading us to only find pleasure in endless consumption, monolithic, homogenous cultures, and dogmatic religious structues. How can we salvage and orient ourselves to the practical, Epicurean philosophy of pleasure, and better control our minds and lives through freedom? Listen in to find out. Dr. Jia was born to an Austrian Jewish father and Chinese mother and grew up in a white, middle-class suburb outside of Chicago. After graduating from college, he backpacked around the world for a year. During a 12-day trek in the Himalayas, he found his calling as a doctor. He received his MD from Northwestern University, completed his residency in family medicine at the Community Hospital of Sonoma County, California, and then traveled to China, Japan, and India to study acupuncture, martial arts, yoga, and other ancient practices. Shortly after returning to the States, Dr. Gottlieb established Still Mountain Clinic in Boulder, Colorado, where he provided patients a unique therapeutic approach based on his extensive training in both Western medicine and Eastern healing artDr. Jia's Website:https://jiagottliebmd.comDr. Jia's Book: https://www.amazon.com/aah-Pleasure-Book/dp/1734376902/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=aah+the+pleasure+book&qid=1592507431&sr=8-1The Psychology Talk Podcast is a unique conversation about psychology around the globe.

Everyone faces up more bravely to a thing for which he has long prepared himself, sufferings, even, being withstood if they have been trained for in advance.

89. Soul in the Game – Vitaliy Katsenelson

After having written two books about investing, value investor Vitaliy Katsenelson thought, like Freddie Mercury once, there must be more to life than this, and wrote a book about life. Vitaliy had written tons of articles about investing and always included personal and philosophical parts, and he learned that it was those parts that many of his readers appreciated the most. His new book is entitled Soul in the Game. He uses the word soul in a non-spiritual way. ”I don't know where it comes from, but when I see people who have this passion for certain things, I know they have soul in the game, and then they have a lot more meaning in life”, Vitaliy says. He thinks writing has made him more philosophical. ”I get up at 4.30 or 5 o'clock every day and write for two hours. So I have two hours of focused thinking. When you do this for a long period of time, you kind of rewire your brain. You become more mindful.” Vitaliy Katsenelson grew up in Soviet Russia and moved to the US when he was 18 years old, around the time of the Soviet collapse: from a life in the hub of anti-capitalism to a successful career as a value investor. Has this background in a communist dictatorship been a help or a hindrance when exploring the landscape of capitalism? ”I came from Murmansk with very little light to Colorado which has an insane number of sunny days a year. With capitalism it's a similar contrast. I appreciate sunlight much more than somebody who was born in Colorado, and I probably appreciate capitalism much more than people who are born into capitalism.” We have a lengthy exchange about what is happening in Russia today and with the invasion of Ukraine. ”I used to be proud to say I was from Russia when people asked. Now I am embarrassed.” ”The Soviet Union was more scarred by World War II than any other country. I grew up learning to hate Nazis. What Russia is doing now to the Ukrainian people is basically the same thing Nazi Germany did”, Vitaliy says. It is a sad fact that Russians have never experienced mature democracy. ”Most Russians are brainwashed. My father said something I think is really true: Russians fall in love with their leaders. And doing this, they end up giving them unlimited power”, Vitaliy says. Two things in life have a special importance to Vitaliy (apart from his family): stoic philosophy and classical music. ”The Stoics give you this roadmap to life. How to minimize suffering and get the most meaning out of life.” Vitaliy highlights three Stoics: Epictetus, Seneca and Marcus Aurelius. ”Epictetus has this one quote that got me hooked. It sounds so trivial and simple, but it clicked with me: 'Some things are up to us, some things aren't'. That's it. It's the cutting of control.” ”Up to us is basically how we behave. How we react to things. And also our values. Everything else is not up to us. I can choose to get upset by things that are not up to me, like getting stuck in traffic. Then I will end up having a miserable life.” It is not that there should not be any pain in life at all. Vitaliy completely agrees with what many spiritual teachers say: pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. Vitaliy listens to classical music when he writes. It makes him more creative, he says. He gravitates towards the Russian composers, ”because their pain clicks with me”, but his favorites constantly change. ”If you understand how difficult it was for many of these composers to write this music, you understand your struggles aren't unique to you. I write and so I can relate to the creative process. And as an investor as well. Investing is also a very creative endeavor.” Vitaliy's about page Soul in the Game

Full show notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter/IG -- @RyanHawk12    https://twitter.com/RyanHawk12 Ryan Holiday is the best selling author of 11 books including The Obstacle Is the Way, The Daily Stoic, Ego Is the Enemy, and Stillness is the Key which has sold millions of copies and been translated into thirty languages. His latest book is called Discipline is Destiny - The Power of Self Control. Notes: We must be in command of ourselves. We have to conquer ourselves before others. Self Discipline - Freedom is the opportunity for self-discipline. The trivial - The people who sustain excellence fall in love with the process. They don't cheat it. Choose to see obstacles as opportunities. Dr. Drew recommended to Ryan that he should read books about stoicism when he was 19. This was a pivotal moment. Carry The Load For Others  – General Jim Mattis. "The privilege of command is command. You don't get a bigger tent. “Being the boss is a job. Being a leader is something you earn.” Seek Discomfort – Seneca was a rich man. He inherited estates from his father. He invested well. Yet every so often, for a few days, he would eat only the scantest fare and wear his coarest clothing. He would actively seek out discomfort, mimicking abject poverty and harsher life conditions.  Having a full calendar - "That doesn't seem like a rich life." Just show up — Consistency. Thomas Edison said “I've got no imagination. Thank never dream. I've created nothing.” The genius hangs around his laboratory day and night.” Your Why must be intrinsic. Just work - in Ancient Greece, there was a word to describe a ceaseless work ethic — philoponia  (about the author Joyce Carol Oates). She published a ton over the course of decades. Work out -- “Obviously the philosopher's life should be well prepared for physical activity.” — the Stoic Gaius Musonius Rufus explained, “because often the virtues make use of this as a necessary instrument for the affairs of low.” The strenuous life is the best life — exercise. You must take care of your body. And eat well. Endure - Shackelton's family motto — “Fortitude Vincimus” — “By endurance we conquer.” George Washington — When he was 26, he watched a play about the Stoics and started repeating the phrase “in the calm light of mild philosophy.” Focus Focus Focus — In Yogic tradition they call this Ekagrata — intense focus on a singular point. Do the hard thing first — Mark Twain - “the idea is that if we eat the frog at the beginning of the day, it will be next to impossible for the day to get any worse.” Can you get back up? “Losing is not always up to us, but being a loser is. Being a quitter is.” Silence is Strength — The Spartans' “laconic” style. Never use 2 words when 1 will do. Archimedes once explained at a Spartan dinner, “An expert on speaking also knows when not to do so.” When Ryan speaks to NFL teams: "I try to give them one or two practical things to implement." Be Your Best - "Conquering the world is rather easy after we have fully conquered ourselves. Certainly fewer people have done the latter than the former.” Taking a stand - How successful are you really if you can't be yourself?" Lou Gehrig -  “When you love the work, you don't cheat it or the demands it makes of you. You respect even the most trivial aspects of the pursuit.”

Teachers are burned out and continue to leave the profession in droves. One of the biggest challenges is that there's so much out of our control as educators that we struggle to cope. Even before COVID wreaked havoc on our world, there was little we could do to control what happened in our day-to-day lives. What if we just let go of what we can't control and instead focus on what is within our power? That's the mindset behind this week's podcast episode with Ryan Racine, author of The Stoic Teacher.    Ryan and I talk about planning ahead for adversity, letting go of those frustrating moments, looking at situations from an outside perspective, and gifting our children with these tools that will serve them well throughout life.   We'll never know a world where we can control everything.

I think that would only make sense, right? But as I continue to fail, I've also learned to fear failure less. 
Which means, I go after 100% of what I want more and more often…and the victories get bigger. Now in our masterminds, I see men at earlier stages of their inner work journey, where fear of failure is still a major inhibitor for going after 100% of what they want in their life. One of the most common themes among men who join our masterminds is this experience of feeling life is good…but not great. They have this deeper sense of knowing that they're standing on the sidelines of the real games they want to be playing, but are too afraid of the consequences of failing in their pursuit.

 As you walk down the path of life, it's important to remember that you're going to need to seek out inspiration. And one of the best places to look for that inspiration. Inspiration lays in the pages of history, since, after all, we are born to live out a story. It's. One that is filled with ups and downs, beautiful arcs, devastating tragedies. Just like the way that any book or movie is laid out. And where the historic circle figures of the past come into play is the fact that they too have faced each and every one of those beautiful highs and devastating lows. They've overcome all the different obstacles that we will have to face in our lifetime.  And therefore, it makes it such an amazing thing that these records, these stories and all these different writings have survived the test of time and now lay at the palm of our hand in so many different forms. Because it gives us the opportunity city to look at each and every one of these people and learn from their beautiful triumphs.  As well as taking note of their devastating mistakes. Through all of that, there's this sense of building our roadmap and the things that we are able to do to become much clearer to us. It's like the power ends up back in our very own hands.  For me,  it became, at the very beginning of my journey, turned back the hands of time, and I started to call on all these different ancient figures. And it's still something that plays a very vital role in my journey today,  because I'm able to bond and connect with these figures and they hold an important part in how I plan and I predict the things that I'm going to be up against. But when I explored this avenue, when I first walked down this path of looking into history, For motivation and ideas.  I came across  the meditations by Marcus Aurelius and some writings by other stoics, but as I've mentioned before, thrown at me in really my darkest day in a very random interview that I heard on a podcast just like this. And the effect that they've had on my life and teaching me and showing me the things that were inside that I never knew were there, came just based off the simple understanding of the logic within the questions that they asked or the philosophy of the mindset that they developed, the way that they walked through and they navigated life and all the different challenges. And it's been my privilege to introduce produce them to you through this podcast.  And there are so many different apps. And it's just a matter of the story or the human being that came before us that we connect with that were able to embody the teachings. You know, like I said, for me, it was great. Even great stoic minds like Marcus, Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus, even Cato and many others, the list goes on and on. Those were the ones that got me through my darkest hours and brought me back from the brink of darkness. And they, too, can do so for you. It's a matter of just picking up a book, turning on an audiobook, and listening, being open and receptive to the ideas and the teachings that they left behind. Because it is a model  when you're in those moments where you feel like you're just laying down, waiting for death to grip you easily. There's a simple phrase, sentence, line, anything within some of those writings that have been passed down that will make you realize it's time to stop and stand up and redefine what's going on around you.  To redefine yourself is where the wisdom and the power comes from. And that's what these characters throughout history shed a light on.  My practice grew. So did my reach, because the project needed to evolve, not only for myself, but as I began Project Mindfully Outdoors. And that's really what all of this sort of stuff is an ongoing project within each and every one of us. So where the base for me, was the print possible? Stoics it then expanded to the philosophies of the men and women of the American frontier.  The ones that built what we know and what we call home, because that home 1s was built upon the backwoods. Heroes such as Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Elda Leopole, Fred Bear, Sitting Bowl those are just to name a few. And I mentioned these names because it's a way to introduce you, to get you to pick up some of their writings and begin conversation for yourself. Because we've all got to look places, we've got to look inward, we've got to look outward. And we've got to also remember to look backwards and remember those beautiful triumphs, those devastating mistakes, and learn how to find a medium. And it's through those sort of philosophy based practices that we find that medium and we learn how to shape ourselves in a way  that cohabitates both our mind and our body, just like the wind across the land. And these are the reasons that all these names and all these philosophies are such a deep root within our camp. Because we're here to explore how the land has been shaped in the history that's made it and how we can apply that to ourselves, to shape ourselves in order to make us.

And it's still something that plays a very vital role in my journey today,  because I'm able to bond and connect with these figures and they hold an important part in how I plan and I predict the things that I'm going to be up against. But when I explored this avenue, when I first walked down this path of looking into history, For motivation and ideas.  I came across  the meditations by Marcus Aurelius and some writings by other stoics, but as I've mentioned before, thrown at me in really my darkest day in a very random interview that I heard on a podcast just like this. And the effect that they've had on my life and teaching me and showing me the things that were inside that I never knew were there, came just based off the simple understanding of the logic within the questions that they asked or the philosophy of the mindset that they developed, the way that they walked through and they navigated life and all the different challenges. And it's been my privilege to introduce produce them to you through this podcast.  And there are so many different apps. And it's just a matter of the story or the human being that came before us that we connect with that were able to embody the teachings. You know, like I said, for me, it was great. Even great stoic minds like Marcus, Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus, even Cato and many others, the list goes on and on. Those were the ones that got me through my darkest hours and brought me back from the brink of darkness. And they, too, can do so for you. It's a matter of just picking up a book, turning on an audiobook, and listening, being open and receptive to the ideas and the teachings that they left behind. Because it is a model  when you're in those moments where you feel like you're just laying down, waiting for death to grip you easily. There's a simple phrase, sentence, line, anything within some of those writings that have been passed down that will make you realize it's time to stop and stand up and redefine what's going on around you.  To redefine yourself is where the wisdom and the power comes from. And that's what these characters throughout history shed a light on.  My practice grew. So did my reach, because the project needed to evolve, not only for myself, but as I began Project Mindfully Outdoors. And that's really what all of this sort of stuff is an ongoing project within each and every one of us. So where the base for me, was the print possible? Stoics it then expanded to the philosophies of the men and women of the American frontier.  The ones that built what we know and what we call home, because that home 1s was built upon the backwoods. Heroes such as Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Elda Leopole, Fred Bear, Sitting Bowl those are just to name a few. And I mentioned these names because it's a way to introduce you, to get you to pick up some of their writings and begin conversation for yourself. Because we've all got to look places, we've got to look inward, we've got to look outward. And we've got to also remember to look backwards and remember those beautiful triumphs, those devastating mistakes, and learn how to find a medium. And it's through those sort of philosophy based practices that we find that medium and we learn how to shape ourselves in a way  that cohabitates both our mind and our body, just like the wind across the land. And these are the reasons that all these names and all these philosophies are such a deep root within our camp. Because we're here to explore how the land has been shaped in the history that's made it and how we can apply that to ourselves, to shape ourselves in order to make us.

He reminds us to accept humbly and let go easily, to accept without arrogance and let go with indifference.   This lesson is pretty straightforward, but profound. When something comes your way—be it status, praise, or material things—accept it with humility, and be mindful that just because you've received that thing it doesn't mean you are more important than anyone else. Do not attach yourself to what you've gained. That way, when you inevitably lose it, you are able to carry on unfazed.   To the Stoics, you could only control your mind and your soul. Therefore, spending your life in pursuit of worldly things, like material goods, wealth, social status, meaningless titles, and praise from others, was a road to misery and disappointment. After all, the more you want, the poorer you'll feel.   Until Wednesday…out of role.
