Hi, I'm Simon. Thanks so much for listening to the show!
When I'm not podcasting or gallivanting around local trails and mountains, I'm helping people to achieve clarity, direction and greater results by aligning them with the person who they know they could be and should be.
If you feel like you could use some help with moving closer towards your own personal ideal, then feel free to book a free initial consultation with me via the link below. Otherwise, you can also head to my YouTube channel for more interviews, my instagram, the Practical Stoic Mastermind on Facebook, or my Patreon community where you'll gain access to weekly virtual meetups with like-minded seekers. See you there!
- We need to bring Stoicism into a modern context and understand that the Stoics could only see the world from their point of view and point in history. We should take what we’ve learned in the past 2,000 years since Stoicism began and allow our modern understanding to interact with the Stoic theories so that we can advance the philosophy.
- The dichotomy of control is an ancient idea that has without a doubt stood the test of time.
