Here’s another great video from Ryan Holiday, author of “The Daily Stoic” and several other great books. Here’s the video description from Ryan’s YouTube channel:

Virtue is one of those words that contains multitudes.

If you think about it, being virtuous is not doing one thing all the time, or even lots of things all at once. It’s doing all the right things—the important things—in those moments when they matter most. Which is every moment. Day by day, It’s about taking the right actions and holding yourself to the highest standard.

In this video Ryan Holiday outlines the 4 Stoic virtues that will improve your life, if you live by them…

A Timeless Classic from Dale Carnegie

Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends…” is another one of those books I read every few years. It’s as applicable today as when it was first published in 1936.

That’s why Ted Prodromou and I have chosen this classic as our August selection for the Mastermind Book Club. 

Every month, Ted and I choose a book for club members to discuss. The club is free to join. Here’s a link to join.

You can read the book – but only IF YOU WANT TO. 

In the MBC community, members will share short videos, blog posts, and other conversation-starters. 

You can comment and participate in any conversation you choose…

…or you can start your post/conversation. 

The idea: 

Share insights drawn from the book.

Discuss how to apply those insights to improve your business.

Celebrate success as you or other members implement 

The key word above: IMPLEMENT.

Wise Words…
…from a Modern-Day Stoic

If you want to try to make the world a slightly better place, there’s a lot you can do. But only one thing guarantees an impact. Step away from the simulation. Step away from the argument. Dig yourself out of the rubble. Stop wasting time with how things should be, would be, could be. Be that thing.

– Ryan Holiday
