Episode 11: Overcoming Adversity and Welcoming Challenge

1 minute, 43 seconds Read

I released a new episode of my Stoic Philosophy series titled ‘Overcoming Adversity and Welcoming Challenge.’ Listen on SoundCloud and YouTube.

Drawing upon writings from Seneca, I talk about cultivating an appropriate mindset in which to overcome adversity and welcome challenge. I explore preparation; foresight; acceptance; avoiding self-defeating thoughts and actions; focusing on processes rather than results; mindfulness; bravery; personal growth; risk-taking; taking initiative; accomplishment; and balance in life.

My Stoic Philosophy series explores the philosophical tradition of Stoicism with goals to inform, empower, and help others benefit from the practical wisdom of Ancient Greek, Roman, and modern thinkers. I tackle many topics including handling adversity, finding meaning in life, working toward contentment, dealing with change, anger, and gratitude.
