MY INTRODUCTION TO STOICISM (simplified):

1. Life is all upside, no downside.

First principle — recognize that life is all upside, no downside.

This means:

Let us take every event in life and transform it into our advantage!

2. Self-focused

Why do we get bitter and salty in life? My theory:

We self-sacrifice ourselves but when others aren’t grateful as much as they ‘should be’, we become resentful towards them and reality.

Thus, it seems the solution is to become maximally self-centered, selfish, introverted, egotistical, and vain.

3. What is the duty of a stoic?

My thought:

Your goal is to maximally empower yourself, then empower others along the way.
