The Stoic Mindset: How to Use Ancient Lessons to Face Life's Challenges The Darius Foroux Show: Mindset, Business, Money

I’ve been writing about the philosophy of Stoicism since 2015. A Stoic mindset has truly changed the way I do everything. I apply Stoicism to my happiness, work, finances, and even relationships. This Stoic mindset allowed me to leverage ancient lessons into my entire life. The other day I was talking about this change with a friend. He asked me: “What does the Stoic mindset really mean? Let me explain. Incorporating Stoicism into my daily life is something that I still work on. Every time I record a podcast I remind myself: “You don’t control how many people will read it or whether they will like it or not.” And now that I’m working on the marketing of my next book, The Stoic Path to Wealth, I occasionally catch myself fantasizing about book sales. Of course, who doesn’t want to do well in their career? But ultimately, it’s not up to us. We can only pour everything into our work, and what happens next is beyond us. This shift has not only improved my productivity but also the quality of my work. In my personal life, Stoicism also gave me a different perspective. I always strive to be a positive force in my own life and the people around me. I make sure I always have good intentions. To be a good person. And to wish others the best.

I also have a library of podcast episodes available in case you’re new to my work. You will especially enjoy my podcast if you have enough from listening to the same people on different podcasts. I only interview people who’s work I find valuable. To me, that’s the best way to have a conversation that’s also valuable for the reader.

If you’re into interviews, check out my conversations with Derek Sivers and Cal Newport. Listeners enjoyed those episodes a lot.

If you’re into productivity, check out “How To Focus Better” and “How To Beat Procrastination With Systems.” Those episodes were received well my listeners who want to get more done.

If you’re curious about personal finance and wealth building, check out my popular episode “5 Tips To Get Rich Slowly.” In that episode, I talk about several practical tips I’ve learned. Not the standard get rich quick advice.

I also have an episode on strength training and fitness. I’ve been working out since I was 16 and experienced many injuries. On “5 Tips For More Effective Strength Training” I talk about how I changed my approach. As a result, I feel stronger and I’m no longer injured several times a year.

I’ve also experimented with added audio articles to my podcast. For example, I recorded an audio version of 10 Career Mistakes I Wish I Had Never Made. That’s one of my most-read articles on careers.
