    Im Laufe der Geschichte hatten große Anführer, Denker, Künstler und Visionäre die Eigenschaft, Launen zu überwinden, Ablenkungen zu vermeiden und das Richtige zu tun. Die Zen-Buddhisten beschrieben es als inneren Frieden und wussten, dass es wichtig war, ob man ein Samurai-Krieger oder ein Mönch ist. Die Stoiker und Epikureer nannten es Ataraxie und glaubten, dass es ein Bollwerk gegen die Leidenschaften des Mobs, eine Voraussetzung für gute Führung und ein Weg zur tiefen Wahrheit sei. Ryan Holiday nennt es Stille – stabil sein, während sich die Welt um einen dreht. In diesem Buch skizziert er einen Weg zu dieser zeitlosen, aber dringend notwendigen Lebensweise.

    In his New York Times bestselling book Courage is Calling, author Ryan Holiday made the Stoic case for a bold and brave life. In this much-anticipated second book of his Stoic Virtue series, Holiday celebrates the awesome power of self-discipline and those who have seized it. To master anything, one must first master themselves–one’s emotions, one’s thoughts, one’s actions. Eisenhower famously said that freedom is really the opportunity to practice self-discipline. Cicero called the virtue of temperance the polish of life. Without boundaries and restraint, we risk not only failing to meet our full potential and jeopardizing what we have achieved, but we ensure...read more

Mit einer Fülle an Beispielen aus Literatur, Philosophie und Geschichte zeigt Ryan Holiday eindrucksvoll und praxisnah, wie die Überwindung des eigenen Egos zum unnachahmlichen Erfolg verhilft. Bewaffnet mit...read more

    An NPR Book Concierge Best Book of 2018!
