These reflections are described as “life-changing”
Every now and then you read a book that changes your life. Jules’s Evan’s book, “Philosophy For Life And Other Dangerous Situations” did that for me.
I knew nothing about the great philosophers, although, without me knowing, their wisdom had already made a huge impact on my life.
The reason I am writing these words is that 10 years ago I read, ‘Awaken the Giant Within’ by Anthony Robbins. There was one line in that book that changed my life, “It’s not events that shape our lives, but our beliefs about them.”.
When I read those words, it was like an explosion going off in my mind. For the first time in my life I realised that I could control how I felt by changing my beliefs about the things that were happening to me,”
This one realisation was the catalyst that transformed my business, health and happiness.
Then I read Philosophy for Life and discovered the true source of Anthony Robbins’ wisdom.
Over 2000 years ago the great Stoic Philosopher Epictetus said, “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters. “
Epiectetus also went on to say that we only ever have control over one thing, our beliefs. Therefore we have TOTAL control of our lives because if we can control our beliefs about the events that happen to us we can control the emotions and actions that follow.
You will love this conversation with Jules, who has so much timely wisdom to share. During this conversation, you will discover how a freak skiing accident helped Jules heal from a life of misadventure with drugs, and led him all the way back to the Stoics of Ancient Greece.
Jules’ story is like a great adventure, and there is so much more to come. So kick back and prepare to have your mind taken on a great adventure into the world of philosophy and other dangerous situations.
