From Wealth to Poverty: The Stoic Response to Adversity
In the face of adversity, the Stoics believed in a mindset that was grounded in wisdom, courage, temperance, and justice. From wealth to poverty, the Stoic response to adversity is a way of life that is based on accepting what is outside of our control, while focusing on what we can control. This philosophy encourages individuals to embrace the inevitable change that comes with life, rather than fighting against it. Stoicism teaches us that we have the power to choose how we respond to adversity, rather than being a victim of our circumstances.
