What could the ancient philosophies of the likes of Seneca, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius have to do with your game in the modern world?
Well maybe EVERYTHING
These ancient philosophers may have made there utterances over two thousand years ago but they are more relevant in my opinion in today’s world than they have ever been.
We look into a book called ‘The Daily Stoic’ by Ryan Holiday and reveal some absolute pearls of wisdom.
‘The circle of control’
We may have heard many time such clichés as ‘control the controllables’ but do we REALLY understand and apply the concepts on a daily basis?
The Stoics would tell us that it is VERY simple in that there is really only ONE thing in your circle of control
Not other people, not the economy, not your opponent and not even your body.
The only thing we really get to have control over is
We then understand that central to this is our CHOICES
The choices we make on a daily basis.
The outside world will present ‘stuff’ to us
That is a fact
The weather is bad
The person you are playing with is an idiot
Play is slow
The ball bounces to the left instead of the right
We can go on and on
Non of this is under our control
We can CHOOSE how we RESPOND
It is in the choosing that we then take RIGHT ACTION
We go from drowning in thought to TAKING ACTION
We DO what we need to do in this moment here and now
Does this mean we will win the tournament?
But what it does mean is we win the more important battle
The battle against ourselves
We make informed choices about how to life THE GOOD life
