Stoicism Reveals 4 Rituals That Will Make You Mentally Strong / BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE

Wonderful post from the blog BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE concerning the enduring utility of the principles and rituals of Stoicism. The summation from the post:

Here are the four Stoic rituals that can make you mentally stronger:

  • Ask, “What’s the worst that could happen?”: You won’t be surprised and you’ll be better prepared. And that’s a prescription for perseverance.

  • Use a “reserve clause”: Fate permitting, it will help you persist after disappointment. (If not, it’s out of my control.)

  • Take the “view from above”: Put things in perspective. Whatever occurred, it’s probably not the worst thing that has ever happened. (And if people shot at you at your last job, it definitely isn’t.)

  • Ask, “What would Batman do?”: Or Wonder Woman. Heroes really do guide our behavior and give us strength.
