How to Be Happier - Stoicism Masterclass

Ali Abdaal

Overview

We live in an unstoppable world of ideas, dreams, and hopes for our future. When one want is fulfilled, another replaces it. If we don't get what we wanted, we obsess over it for years until we've lost the lust for it. What happens to happiness then? It may be something we all want for ourselves, but we rarely actually reflect on how we get it.

Fortunately, stoicism has the solution. Cambridge medical graduate Ali Abdaal has found this philosophy helpful in understanding happiness, and he thinks it will work for you too. In this course, How to Be Happier, Abdaal has made it even easier for you to apply stoic principles in your daily life, and align them with your own personal needs.

In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey used the principles of stoicism to discuss the circle of influence in which you affect both people and your surroundings, and in turn are affected by others. How to Be Happier uses the same approach but with a modern twist: an easy-to-understand way to practically maneuver life's circle with patience, and thus find true happiness.

"When pleasures have corrupted both mind and body, nothing seems to be tolerable, not because the suffering is hard, but because the sufferer is soft."
