177: Atlas's Burden

176: Control
Today we are using an Epictetus quote to talk about control. Control is an elusive and fickle thing because the more control we believe we have over our things and situation in life, often means the less control we have. All we can really control are our actions. Somethings we cannot even fully control our thoughts. Look no further to that annoying song many of us get stuck in our heads. The more we try to be in control, the more we open ourselves to disappointment.   So today I challenge you to not get caught up trying to be in control, just enjoy the day and focus on your actions and reactions.   As usual, if you want to say hi to the voice behind the One Take Stoic you can find me at:  Thrivingonfat.com    Instagram: www.instagram.com/thrivingonfat/   Twitter: twitter.com/ThrivingOnFat  Facebook: Facebook.com/thrivingonfat   Notice a theme?

175: Time heals all wounds
Only time can heal somethings. When we are faced with pain, that is the LAST anyone wants to hear. However, it's true. A forest will grow after a fire blazes through. People will rebuild in the ruins of an earthquake. Personal loss will heal with the help of time and the guidance of friends.

174: Human Connection
Today we are using a quote to talk about human inner connection. Yes every man may be an island, however, that is not the whole story. At the root of it, runs a connection we all have. We all go through similar human experiences, we all feel pain, love, loss, happiness, and sadness. It is through these emotions that we are all connected because we can sympathize, empathize and understand one another. It when we realized this that we can truly feel connected even though we are our own separate entities.

153: to be broken, is to be human
Today we are using an Instagram post from last year, to help us shift our mindset and understand that we are all broken. From our broken places we can grow and become better versions of ourselves. If you are going through a break right now, it may seem like it is impossible to overcome, but you can to it!  Yes, you may be going through a difficult situation, maybe you feel like it cannot change, however I am here to tell you that it will and it can. The important thing is to allow a shift in mindset to see this difficulty as a challenge to help you get better. You do not have to deal with this change alone, you can reach out the those around you that you feel like you can trust and talk to them. Heck, this is part of the reason I offer coaching. So that I can help be the support you may need, but I can only help you if you tell me whats going on. The same goes for those who are close to you. If you want help, you need to ask for it. Don't be afraid, be are all broken.   As usual, if you want to say hi to the voice behind the One Take Stoic you can find me at: Thrivingonfat.com   Instagram: www.instagram.com/thrivingonfat/  Twitter: twitter.com/ThrivingOnFat Facebook: Facebook.com/thrivingonfat  Notice a theme?

170: Enjoy the moments you have
Today we are using a Marcus Aurelius quote to help us appreciating what we have. We use it to help us understand that the next minutes of our lives are not promised us. Death comes for everybody at different times, in different places and with different amounts of surprise. We are not promised tomorrow, we are not promised the next hour, so take the time to appreciate those you have around you. Most importantly, try and live a life you love.

Today we are're using a Cato quote to better understand when to talk, and when to allow silence. Sometimes it's difficult to realize when we are truly adding to a conversation.

166: I'm Possible
Today we are talking about the idea of something being impossible. To which I offer the question: if given the right mindset, can we overcome the obstacles in our way? After all, look at Roger Bannister, before him, we thought it was an impossibility to run a 4-minute mile. Or when we the cold war sparked the space race. Before then getting to the Moon seemed impossible, now scientists are looking at manned missions to Mars. With that said, is anything truly impossible? No, because YOU are possible.

160: I'm Back
Good morning friends; I am back in action! The move went well, and I am still getting settled in. The big stuff is done and I am able to once again talk to y'all daily, so thank you for understanding my going dark for a week. Today we talk a little bit about understanding when life throws you lemons sometimes you need to make lemonade. I also discuss how even set backs and difficulties can lead to getting our goals, because sometimes we need to take one step back to leap forward farther than we've gone. Regardless of that though, I am back and I will get back to my somewhat daily schedule, thank you again for understanding.

158: Do what is right
While we went to stay true to ourselves , and not compromise our integrity, that does not mean that you will never be in the wrong. Yes you want to stay true to yourself so you do not tilt and windmills. However if you remain obstinate in the face of everyone pushing back, you may be the one in the wrong. Stay true to yourself, but understand the importance of self reflection. No one is right 100% of the time.

157: Allowing confidence
Having confidence does not mean that you have to be cocky. Nor is confidence innate, instead it is something you can build, and even get better. Sometimes it can be a difficult skill to acquire, however, if you have a strong Why to anchor to, it becomes easier to build up your confidence. It is equally important that we take the time to communicate our points well because if we cannot do that the confidence can easily be seen as cockiness.

151: Conquering the world
Today, we talk about conquering the world... Well maybe not, when I say, conquering the world, I mean your biggest goal. Before we can focus on conquering the world, we need to first conquer ourselves. In order to do this, you need to look inside ourselves, to understand our Why for doing things, then understand a little bit more about the goal in mind. This all pertains to us and all the fun mindset stuff we talked about on a daily basis, after this soul searching is finished we can then start to focus on conquering our goal.

149: Life is a mountain
The beauty of life is that there are ups, downs, valleys, and peaks. At each stage in our life, we have different expectations for us. I have said this before and I'll say it again, life is a journey, it's an adventure, it's something that is ever changing. This metaphor (well technically simile) that life is like a mountain, is so very true. Take the time to think about it, where you on your mountain today? Are you at the peak, the valley, or somewhere in between? There's no value judgment associated with where you are. Just think about where you are, assess and move forward, that's all we can do.

Today we are talking about emotions. They are a necessary part of life. Keeping that in mind, however, it is important that we do not allow them to control our behavior.

147: Black, white and gray all over
Today we're talking about the importance of having both rules and structure, as well as freedom from those rules. In some parts in our lives, we will need very hard-and-fast rules, however, in other cases, we need the freedom to make decisions that are not dependant upon those rules. As we change and grow those hard-and-fast rules may change with us bringing in other ones, and it's important to be flexible when we can. Just like water, some days we may be hard as ice, and other days we may need to flow through a river bed. The action needed in each situation will change with the seasons.

146: Internal happiness
Today we're talking about cultivating happiness. Not just from experiences or from our possessions but from a mindset shift. This mindset shift helps us obtain long-lasting happiness with life, regardless of what hand we are dealt with. Happiness is not about getting everything we want, when we want it. Happiness is about experiencing life and having the attitude of gratitude necessary to appreciate the things that go away and even the things that don't. When we can have an attitude of gratitude we are able to become happy regardless of the obstacles that end up in our path. today is the last day to sign up for the 31-Day Primal Challenge, so please visit: thrivingonfat.com/31DPC to find out more.

142: We communicate with action
Today we are focusing on communication. Many of us have heard the old adage, "it's not about what you say, but how you say it." Today we take that idea to its logical conclusion to encompass not only how others actions matter, but our actions to ourselves matter just as much. Often time when we try and live up to what we say, we do not include how and what we promise to ourselves. We focus on doing for others at the sake if doing for ourselves. I would argue that this is a huge oversight. What are your thoughts on the matter? If want wanting a way to make a health change stick, then check out my 31-Day Primal Challenge.

142: Gaining strength with emotions
Today we talk about strength. We talk about what it is, and what it is not. Strength is not having everything go your way. Strength comes from pushing through pain and obstacles to obtain your goals regardless of life's setbacks. Disappointment will occur, the pain will happen, we may cry and feel strong emotions. However, those emotions are not insurmountable. Feel the emotion, let it wash over you like a stone in a river. Once you have taken the time to feel, use that emotion to fuel your further growth and efforts for positive change in your life. Are you struggling to make a meaningful health change in your life? If you are, that is okay, we all struggle. It's important to note that struggling is not a prerequisite to failure. As we struggle, we must push past that point. When we do, we come out the other side stronger and more resilient than before.  The way we build a healthy lifestyle is first with a strong foundation. Once we build a strong foundation, we can build our healthy lifestyle one good habit brick at a time. If you want to learn more about how you can reach your health goals in a sustainable way, then visit: thrivingonfat.com/31DPC    Reaching your goals is not always easy, but you can obtain them.

Today we are using a Thomas Paine quote to focus on growing from missteps and smiling in the face of adversity. Throughout our daily struggles, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about what we are going through. In these times, it is important to remember why we are trying to change.

137: A hero's journey
Today we are talking about the hero's journey, and how with each journey we grow with failure. It is not about taking little leaps so that we do not fall, instead, it is about taking huge leaps to get to where we want to go. Reaching your goals is not easy, but they can be obtained. All you have to do is reach for them, and push through failure. Are you ready to start making a change in your health? Then sign up for my 31-day Primal Challenge! signup at thrivingonfat.com/signup

136: Words carry weight
Today we are focusing upon the the weight that words carry. Regardless of if they are in print, on social media or in between our ears. Our words can be the force keeping us from changing or what is holding us back from taking the next step.   Think about that for a second, even the words you say to yourself can keep you for sticking to your goals. The next time you think that you are not good enough think again. Because you are good enough, you are worth it and you can make the difficult choices that need to be made to help you reach your goals.  If you want to find more our about the 31-Day Primal Challenge that I will be hosting in May join the email list: thrivingonfat.com/signup

135: One step at a time
Today we are talking about the importance of being mindful while we are taking one step at a time. Since the only moment we have is the one we are taking, we should be mindful of the steps we choose. This does not negate the need for planning, it only illustrates how little was can control. What is behind us cannot be changed, and what is in front of us cannot be run away from. All we can do is prepare to the best of our abilities, give it our all, and hope that is enough.

117: the bravery to be yourself
Today we are talking about having the bravery to be yourself. For some, this topic may come second nature, and for others, it can be difficult.  For much of my life, I fell into the latter camp. I felt like my voice didn't hold as much weight as others.  As I have worked on myself I have started to become much better at sharing my opinion in a constructive manner while helping others find their voice. We all have the opportunity to grow, and to become better versions of ourselves. Remember, it is about progress, not perfection.

110: The evolution of evil
Today I take you through a journey if someone from being an advocate to a participant in the evil act.  It isn't always a quick thing, in fact, it is often times a slow steady progression that corrodes our virtue. This is why we should stand up for one another.  There is a fine line between standing up for someone and engaging in a combative manner. Which is another form of slowly progressing into violence. This really is a fascinating topic.

107: growing through fear
Today we are dissecting fear, and how it is only a reaction to events. Fear is nothing that is set in stone, fears can be conquered. The important thing is to understand that the fear you have is based upon an event, and your continued fear comes from the way you continue to view said event.  During the episode I give you a way to help you deal with the fear. Overcoming fear and the hurt that the memory can distill in you can be a difficult path, but it is not an impossible one.  You can grow through the fear, so it no longer controls you. When you grow through the fear you are now in control. You can get through this situation.  Feel free to reach out if you need someone to talk to, I will help in any way I can.

089: The deception of prosperity
Today we are talking about not allowing ourselves to become beguiled by prosperity. Yes good things will happen to bad people, and bad things will happen to good people. Regardless of how we land on the spectrum. We should not get caught up in allowing ourselves to hurt by what life throws at us. Instead we need to understand that shuff happens regardless of who we are and how we act. We just need to make the most out if it.  As usual, if you want to say hi to the voice behind the One Take Stoic you can find me at:  Thrivingonfat.com   Instagram: www.instagram.com/thrivingonfat/  Twitter: twitter.com/ThrivingOnFat Facebook: Facebook.com/thrivingonfat  Notice a theme?

Today we have Jonathan Shane on the line, we spent a little bit of time talking about fate.

Regardless of if you believe in fate, it is an important point because you can either deal with what you have in front of you or you can crumble under the pressure. The pressure can either build you up or shatter you to pieces. The outcome depends upon your mindset and perceptions of events.    As usual, if you want to say hi to the voice behind the One Take Stoic you can find me at: Thrivingonfat.com   Instagram: www.instagram.com/thrivingonfat/  Twitter: twitter.com/ThrivingOnFat Facebook: Facebook.com/thrivingonfat  Notice a theme?

076: Let the truth free you
Part of learning the truth can be difficult, hard even. But after the initial pain, hurt or agaer subsides, there is a feeling of solace.  Yes, you may have lost something or somesomeone, but now you are free. You are able to grow and improve. The only time we hurt ourselves with the truth, is when we are unwilling to accept it. When we lie to disguise the truth it when we hurt ourselves and others the most. This can be true with our personal or buisness lives.  As much as the truth can hurt, a lie can kill you and decay you slowly over time eating away at who you are, and at what makes you special.  As usual, if you want to say hi to the voice behind the One Take Stoic you can find me at: Thrivingonfat.com  Instagram: www.instagram.com/thrivingonfat/ Twitter: twitter.com/ThrivingOnFat Facebook: Facebook.com/thrivingonfat Notice a theme?

We truly have power over ourselves, when we have power over our mind. We can fail to have the power, which allows us to drift along with daily events. When this happens it can lead to us believing that the outside world and events have power over our minds, however, that isn’t true. Outside events can apply pressure it us, but it is up to us to make the decisions about how we react.  Only we can chose to how to react to the events. No matter the choices are, there must be a give and take, however, that is part of living, isn't it?  As usual, if you want to say hi to the voice behind the One Take Stoic you can find me at: Thrivingonfat.com  Instagram:www.instagram.com/thrivingonfat/ Twitter:twitter.com/ThrivingOnFat Notice a theme?

015: Conquering the world
 Zeno of Citium (he lived around 336 – 265 B.C/B.C.E) was the founder of the Stoic School of philosophy in Athens. The philosophy taught that the Logos (Universal Reason) was the greatest good in life. Wheb we live in accordance with universal reason, we are truly living a worthwhile existence. Later stoicism would be further developed by Epictetus (50-130 A.D/C.E.) and others like, Seneca the Younger (Lucius Annaeus Seneca) or just Seneca (c. 4 BC – AD 65), and most notably Marcus Aurelius (121-180 A.D./C.E.). Eventually Stoicism would become one of the most popular and influential philosophies in the Roman world. That's enough history for now.
