Be Better — and Happier — in Business, Sports, and Life. Read Ryan Holiday’s New Bestseller, The Daily Stoic

Motivational speaker Ryan Holiday’s newest book is The Daily Stoic, a collection of 366 stoic insights and exercises geared at helping you be better in all domains. An instant Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller, Stoic distills the teachings of Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Epictetus, and others into practical, everyday advice for modern life.

In 2014’s The Obstacle Is the Way, Holiday showed us how stoicism has helped highly successful people—like Steve Jobs, John D. Rockefeller, Amelia Earhart, and Ulysses S. Grant—persevere through dire circumstances. The book was a runaway hit, racking up endorsements from Arnold Schwarzenegger, LL Cool J, and several professional sports teams, including the Chicago Cubs and New England Patriots. In his keynotes, Holiday helps corporations, teams, and schools alike turn their obstacles into opportunities.

 

Now, in The Daily Stoic, Holiday demonstrates how this wisdom, taken one day at a time, can be applied to any problem life throws your way. “Stoicism is practical,” Holiday told Esquire in a recent interview. “It aims to help us overcome problems in life. It has strengthened me in failure, comforted me in pain, given meaning to events, and cautioned humility and conservatism in moments of success. It has been a philosophy of life that that’s been embraced by great men and women of history but few people today have had the chance to be introduced to.” 

 

The Daily Stoic, then, is the ideal introduction. Here’s what people are saying about Holiday’s latest book:

 

“Whether you’re a lowly cubicle slave or a US Senator, this book will help you find your still center.”
— Gregory Hays, translator of The Modern Library’s edition of Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations

 

“A generous gift of guidance on modern living culled from a canon of wisdom hatched long ago.”
— Maria Popova, editor of Brain Pickings

 

“A richly rewarding spring of practical wisdom to help you focus on what’s in your control, eliminate false and limiting beliefs, and take more effective action. Make The Daily Stoic your guide and you will grow in clarity, effectiveness, and serenity each day!” 
— Jack Canfield, co-author of The Success Principles and the Chicken Soup for the Soul series

 

Be sure to grab a copy of The Daily Stoic, in stores now. Or, dive into Holiday’s other recent work, Ego Is the Enemy—an exploration of how our own vanity is often our biggest barrier to success.
