Going back to the times of Ancient Greece, stoicism has been a powerful philosophy no matter the century. Stoicism is a call to action and a mindset to embrace.  It is a very personal philosophy because it is up to you, and only you, whether you decide to live it. It is a philosophy grounded on the principle that we choose how to respond to the situations that life (and death for that matter) throws at us. Famous stoics such as Marcus Aurelius and Seneca were known for their insights on Stoicism. Modern-day Stoic Ryan Holiday has reintroduced this grounded approach to life to my generation. Today, a number of musicians use many of the same ideas to empower the message behind their songs. Below is a playlist that may inspire your inner Stoic.
