Rekindi #32 - Stoicism, Ancient Wisdom, Purpose & Spirituality - Simon Drew Rekindi Podcast

    • Education

“I often find myself coming back to the Stoic practice of looking at what I can control and what I can’t. If I had to name one exercise that could change more lives than any other, this would be it. Once you understand how to spend your efforts only in areas where you have power, and how to not spend any effort thinking or worrying about things that you can’t control, that’s when you become a truly effective human being. " ~ Simon Drew

Stoicism has been a common thread though some of history’s great leaders. It has been practiced by Kings, presidents, artists, writers and entrepreneurs. Marcus Aurelius, Frederick the Great, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt —just to name a few—were all influenced by Stoic philosophy.


So what is Stoicism? Who were the Stoics? How can you be a Stoic?
Today we are joined by Simon Drew to help us answer some of these questions.

Simon is an Alignment coach, musician, writer and podcaster originally from the Sunshine Coast, Australia.

He is most famous for his podcast - The Practical Stoic Podcast, where Simon has been exploring the ideas of Stoicism for numerous years, in addition to helping thousands of people around the world to transform themselves using these ancient principles.
