My daily dose of courage

My morning routine of hearing The Daily Stoic serves as a sort of ‘vitamin pill’ that provides stamina to do the day right. It’s just the right amount of sage wisdom to give me strength and stiffen my spine.

Not really what I expected

I thought this was going to be something else.

It just seems like they sprinkle Greek and Roman motifs of philosophy and bend it to fit the narrative.

I don’t think this will be a benefit to your life and and won’t give you the personal growth you’re looking for.
