No matter what path your business – or your life – is on, obstacles are bound to come up.
Even if you’re the most fortunate person in the world, doing exactly what you want to be doing, that doesn’t mean your life is obstacle-free.
Today, Danny sits down with Ryan Holiday to talk about the career path and life lessons that led Ryan to publish his new book Welcome To The Obstacle Is The Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph.
Several years ago, Ryan was introduced to the philosophy of stoicism through the works of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius. And although he has run a successful marketing company, and has worked with dozens of best-selling authors and public figures, he always comes back to the tenants of stoicism to keep him grounded and provide the basic tools to succeed because of -not in spite of – the obstacles in his path.
On this week’s podcast, Danny and Ryan explore how Ryan became interested in stoicism and why he wrote this book more for his own enjoyment and use than to advance his career. Most importantly, they’ll discuss some of the key tenants of stoicism, and how you can use those lessons and insights to succeed because of your own obstacles.
