STOIC MINDSET

“My idea of the modern stoic sage is someone who transforms fear into prudence, pain into information, mistakes into initiation, and desire into undertaking.”

-Taleb

Our mindset affects how we react in an emergency and our day-to-day life. Stoicism is not a religion or some bearded man saying many long words in a toga. Stoic people are thinkers. They think about how they can improve, prepare, and be happy.

Thoreau said it well “to be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school…it is to solve some of the problems of life, not only theoretically, but practically.” You may not consider yourself a “philosopher.” But, we can use the tips from the stoics to carefully think through the problem at hand and develop a practical solution. This is true in emergencies, parenting, and daily life.
