My Last Book: The Obstacle Is the Way
The Obstacle Is the Way, written by Ryan Holiday, is a modern take on the ancient philosophy of Stoicism. Stoicism is the endurance of pain or hardship without the display of feelings and without complaint. This message can help you endure the struggles of life by applying lessons from ancient heroes, former presidents, modern actors, athletes. These examples can show us how they turned adversity into success, thanks to the power of perception, action and will.
This is one of the top quotes from Ryan Holiday, “There is no good or bad without us, there is only perception. There is the event itself and the story we tell ourselves about what it means.”
I do not want to give the whole book away, read it for yourself. I have always said that perception is reality. If we can change our perception of an obstacle in our life, we can have a better chance at changing the outcome.
This is part of my section on mind, we need to read more, learn more and continue expanding our brain. Treat our mind like any other muscle, let us give it a workout by reading this book.
