“The person who has practiced philosophy as a cure for the self becomes great of soul, filled with confidence, invincible — and greater as you draw near.”

— SENECA, MORAL LETTERS, 111.2

A Cure For The Self

Philosophy acts as a cure for the self.

Philosophy enables you to reach deep into your soul and figure it all out.

Philosophy enables you to engage in challenging debates and arguments.

Philosophy enables you to fill with confidence.

Philosophy enables you to flourish.

Practice Your Philosophy

The only caveat here is that you have to put in the effort and actively practice your philosophy.

You will not achieve greatness through no work on your part.

You will not achieve confidence if you do not take action.

You need to be willing to work for it.

You need to be willing to put the effort in to your philosophy.

If you do, you’ll reap the immense benefits.
