The Stoic Mindset – Ancient Lessons for Modern Life

Olympic gold medallist Mark Tuitert

How can Stoic philosophy help you reach your peak potential? Olympic champion, entrepreneur, and internationally bestselling author Mark Tuitert joins us to share the lessons he learned.

For twenty years, Mark Tuitert has used the principles of Stoic philosophy to become a gold-medal winning Olympic champion athlete, successful entrepreneur, as well as to deal with the challenges in his professional and private life.

Now he joins How To Academy to lay out the practical lessons through which everyone, in any situation, can develop a Stoic mindset.

Applying the teachings of Stoic masters including Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and Epictetus to the twenty-first century, he will empower us to discover how Stoicism can change your life and help you reach your full potential.

Stoicism is not about achieving success or happiness for their own sake. It is about doing what is important to you with a focused mindset, and developing a Stoic calm and mental balance when faced with setbacks.

In this livestream talk, Mark will set you on the path to mastering a Stoic mindset, helping you to apply the insights of the Stoics anywhere, anytime.
