Episode 17: Wisdom of the Stoics
Listen now
Hello, listeners, members and subscribers! Our seventh Moonshots Master episode is here and we are delving deep into the philosophy, mindsets, behaviours and Wisdom of the Stoics! We open up the show with Therealisedman, who has a call to action inspired by Marcus Aurelius and Victor Frankl, stating that we all have power over our minds. We then turn to Moonshots master, Ryan Holiday, on how Stoics had the wisdom to build and maintain self-discipline, and why wisdom is so valuable for our minds. As we move to understand Stoicism more, we hear from Chris Lines, who reads out a collection of Marcus Aurelius’s greatest quotes. Next up are Gad Saad and Joe Rogan, who discuss the timeless wisdom of the ancient philosophers together, as well as the impact of the Stoics today. Closing out the show is modern-day Stoic leader, Ryan Holiday, who gives us the secrets to unlocking courage to grow, and how to make progress every day. Then Ryan closes the show with a thought that helps us reconsider our ego, and questions if we did our best today. Our recommended reading list on the Wisdom of the Stoics includes some key titles that will help you go even deeper into the topic: How to Be a Stoic, Massimo Pigliucci Cambridge Companion to the Stoics, Brad Inwood Discourses and Selected Writings, Epictetus Letters from a Stoic, Seneca Meditations, Marcus Aurelius Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living, Ryan Holiday How to Think Like a Roman Emperor, Donald Robertson What key lesson are you taking from the Stoics, and what we’ve learned in the Master Series?
