Stop Chasing Happiness (Stoicism)
What you'll learn
- How to maintain internal joy no matter external circumstances.
- Though not required, we strongly encourage students to purchase a copy of 'The Joyful Stoic' and a companion to the course.
Have you been searching for what will make you happy for more years that you can count? Have you found that no matter how much you obtain, you continually want more? The house is not big enough, the car not good enough, and even your relationships don’t seem to be measuring up to your expectations? This may be because you are a believer in the idea of ‘the pursuit of happiness.”
The pursuit of happiness is a myth that is destroying lives and hope. I want to show you how to have the ever constant peace of internal joy using the tool of Stoic Philosophy. This is not the 'stoic' word most of you are familiar with which implies not showing or feeling emotion. This is a 2000 year old philosophy employed by many of the greats that helped them to learn the truth about control, the effectiveness of negative visualization and so much more. You will enjoy the course but most importantly you will learn about tools that will actually make a difference in your life.
•Understanding the difference between external happiness and internal joy.
•The reality of the disease of more
•Actionable tools to help you implement a change
