How to Be Confident: 3 Stoic Quotes To Help You Face Any Obstacle — Evan Bishop Writing

Stoic philosophy emphasizes living in the moment. Bad times are inevitable, so instead of complaining, do your best to have an internal locus of control.

Only recently, after listening to a very captivating podcast from Tim Ferris, did I actually learn what stoicism was, as well as how stoicism, martial arts and BJJ competition, and everyday obstacles are related.

For a more thorough read on stoicism, I have to refer you to Ryan Holiday’s bestsellerThe Obstacle is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials Into Triumphs. He does a very thorough job of articulating stoicism in a very enjoyable and easily consumable manner.

These two sources of stoicism I stumbled upon caused me to reflect a lot on how closely these principles apply to life as a martial artist and as an athlete.
