1 11 Steps to Practice Stoicism in Daily Life

“Waste no time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.” - Marcus Aurelius

As someone with a YouTube channel, frequently discussing Stoicism, the above quote is a concern for me. So, in order to combat merely discussing Stoicism and not applying it, here are the 11 Stoic steps to actually be a “good man” in daily, modern life.

This routine is split into three parts: a Stoic morning routine, Stoic concepts to apply in daily life and a Stoic evening routine. Each section should be easily applicable and flexible so that you can apply them, no matter how busy you are. My goal is to end the question: "how can I apply Stoicism in daily life"!

An Essential Introduction To Stoicism

Before we can dive into the Stoic principles, we must have a basic understanding of the magic of the Philosophy of Stoicism, and why people started to flock to it.

Now, first things first, Stoicism states that the whole purpose of mankind is to "follow nature". At first this seems cryptic, but it can be split up into two different parts: following the nature of the individual (you as yourself); and the second will follow the nature of the world in general.

On top of this, Epictetus wrote a general broad statement that encompasses the whole of stoicism

"Some things are under our control, while others are not under our control, under our control our conception will the way that we define things, intention, the voluntary impulse to act aversion, the desire to avoid something, and in a word, everything that is in our own doing, not under our control, or our body, our property, reputation, position, in society, and in a word, everything that is not of our own doing."

To combine the two above theories: the things that are under our control,  our own voluntary thoughts and actions, we should be doing them in harmony with nature. And what that means is we should do everything that we can to control that, we should be doing it with wisdom, and other forms of excellence.

Those things outside of our direct control, we should accept, and we should love them. Not only should we recognise that we can't control them, but we should love the fact that they happen, because that's just the way the world works.

Applying Stoicism by following nature in this way has a long string of beneficial effects: freedom, fearlessness, overcoming irrational fear and desire, absence and distress, serenity, and a smooth flow of life.

So you can see that living in this way, in harmony with nature, leads us to have a good life.

Stoic Morning Routine

The way you start your morning will have a huge effect on the rest of your life, so make sure you consciously craft a morning routine that fits with you and your own goals - it will pay dividends.

Stoic Exercise 1: Stoic Meditation and A View From Above

The first way to live life as a Stoic is to meditate. Now, I know you might be thinking: this is Buddhist! But I think you should take time in the morning to just calm yourself down and relax. This way you're creating a "gap" between you and your busy day. In that gap you can start to proactively engineer your dream life, instead of reactively responding to daily tasks.

Once you're in a clear mental headspace, you can take the view from above - an exercise taken straight from The Philosophy of Stoicism. What a view from above means is you should view where you are in life as if you're looking at yourself from a third person view. So you can see how you fit into the universe. This will allow you to see how small all of your problems are. And you can be grateful for everything that you have. That is what a view from above does. And I think that meditation is something that everyone should be doing, whether you're stoic, whether you're not stoic.

If you want more information about this, watch this video:

You can also watch this guided meditation to get a better understanding of the idea:

Stoic Exercise 2: Negative Visualisation

So the second thing I think that any stoic should be doing as part of their morning meditation will be taking negative visualisation of the day, you should be thinking ahead of all of the activities that you're going to be doing throughout the day, and just think about what could go wrong.

Now, you're going to do this for a few reasons. First of all, when you think negatively about the things that could go wrong about the future, and you at least consider them, well, if they do happen, you're gonna be so much less hurt.

I really like this quote from Oliver Burkeman who is a British journalist he states that negative visualisation is:

“Confronting the worst case scenario saps it of much of its anxiety inducing power. Happiness reached via positive thinking can be fleeting and brittle, negative visualisation generates a vastly more dependable calm.”

If you expect or at least consider the chance that they could happen, something negative, you'll be prepared to happen in the future, what I was referring to earlier, is an idea that one's happiness levels are inversely proportional to one's expectations. The Youtuber Dan Mace once said Happiness = Expectation/ Reality. According to the formula, it is a failsafe way of sustaining high happiness levels is to maintain low expectations. This therefore means that one’s happiness levels are inversely proportional to one’s expectations. 

Stoic Exercise 3: Contemplation Of The Sage 

So the third and final part of the perfect Stoic morning routine will be contemplation of the sage. Put simply,  you think about someone that you aspire to be like, maybe it's Batman, maybe it's Marcus Aurelius, maybe it's some figure in history, or even a filmmaker. Then, you think about them. Consider how they conduct themselves throughout the day, what decisions they make, and just contemplate the sage.

If you can imagine yourself as the person that you want to be, when you're confronted with a decision (e.g. should I stay in bed?), ask yourself:"what would the person I want to be do?".

It's impossible for you to get closer towards the person you want to be if you never think about them. Habituating the process of contemplating a "better you" is the first step in improving your life.

If you can start your day with those three Stoic exercises, you'll be well on your way to becoming "a good man".

Let's get on to apply Stoicism in daily life.

How To Be A Stoic In Daily Life

Starting your morning with a Stoic morning routine is a great start, but it's even better to learn how to apply Stoic concepts in daily life. The following Stoic ideas can be applied any day, every day, just as you're going about your daily habits.

Stoic Concept 1: Be Aware Of Your Character

The first one for the ultimate Stoicism daily routine is to be aware of your character throughout the whole day. This involves you constantly bringing your attention back to yourself, and being aware of the decisions that you make.

The aim here is to constantly act like you were a "good", noble person. Now, I'm not saying that you're not noble, but the most effective way to become truly noble is to act truly noble.

Now I know this sounds weird, but hopefully Epictetus can explain it better than me (the following paragraph is paraphrased for better understanding).

When dealing with day to day life, be like a passenger who has briefly gone ashore on a cruise: keep one eye on the boat at all times (on your character) and be prepared at any moment to have to run back to the cruise at the call of the captain (i.e. to abandon externals and give your whole attention again to yourself, your own attitudes and actions).
As if you were walking barefoot and cautious not to tread on something sharp, be mindful continually of your character, and guard it against being harmed by your own foolish actions. All of your attention should focus on the care of your mind.
In response to every situation in life, ask yourself what virtue nature has given you to best deal with it e.g. courage, restraint etc., and continually seek opportunities to exercise these virtues.

Stoic Concept 2: Indifference and Acceptance

The second part of your incredible Stoic daily routine is indifference and acceptance. Imagine that everything that happens to you, you chose it to happen, accept it and love it. The famous German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche puts it perfectly:

“That which does not kill us, makes us stronger”. 

So no matter what happens, even if at first it seems negative, flip it around and see the benefit of it. Reframe every negative event to make it positive, or at least indifferent.

An easy way to do this is to remind yourself that any negative event is an opportunity to exercise your virtues e.g. patience.  Why would you not choose to love love and accept the things that happen to you? We have a super power - we can change how we perceive events - so choose to perceive all events that happen as something positive and good.

This is called cognitive distancing -  separating yourself from your emotions. Now I know that when you're thinking when you hear this - I can see the red flags going up and sirens are going off in your mind. But let me be clear exactly what I mean. Don't detach yourself from your emotions, don't ignore or suppress your emotions. Instead, place yourself further away by them not to be swept away from them when they are negative, or even when they are positive. At first, positive emotions that you may be receiving may not actually be beneficial for you in the long run.

So when you feel an emotion, whether it's negative or positive, just delay your emotion just a little bit and let yourself consider whether this feeling you receiving is actually positive for you, or negative view. This is actually possible! It just takes a bit of conscious effort and practice over time.

For example, if you just won a huge hand on your first game at blackjack, you're going to have incredible intense pleasurable emotions. Do you want to associate gambling with pleasurable emotions? No, I’m sure you don’t, so just step back from the situation. Distance yourself cognitively. And ask yourself do I really want to be feeling these emotions about this event?

Stoic Concept 3: Empathetic Understanding

When someone acts in a way that seems to you irrationally, you've got to remember that to them - that is all they know how to do.

Don't immediately judge them. But instead view that actions for all that they are because you don't know their intentions. You don't know whether their intentions were positive or negative, was at first, it may seem obvious that their intentions were negative, just step back and say, are they really doing something that they know is negative?  Or are they just doing it because that's what seems best to them at the moment in time.

Stoic Concept 4: Stoicism And Physical Exercise

Now, yes, when you first think of this, or when you first hear this, the world is going to join your mind is going to the gym. And yes, that is good. But you should also be going to the gym not just to get bigger or to get stronger - but to train the muscle of discipline.

There's this one exercise that I like to do in the gym where I go over to one of the cables, and I do bicep curls and a weights that is really light. Now I know that I can do maybe 20 or 30 reps without tiring. But what I do is when I get to 30 reps, I say "great, wow I'm going to practice discipline". And I see how many I can get. And I really push myself this with this light weight, and I just keep going and I keep going going to keep going.

And every single time I go a little bit more to prove my discipline is getting a little bit longer, a little bit greater. And every single time I push myself as hard as I can to practice the muscle of discipline.

Now there are lots of other ways that you can do this. For example, Epictetus talks about when you are thirsty, you take a drink of water, you swirl it around your mouth, and you spit it out, just because it acts against what your body really wants to do. And you can also do things like going to bed without a little bit too cold or going out in the street, just wear clothes that are a little bit colder, a little bit rougher, a little bit itchy. Maybe you'd could go on a water fast. Where you only drink water for 24 hours.

The point is, put yourself through physical pain to train your discipline

Stoic Concept 5: Impermanence and Acceptance

Recognise the shortness of everything that happens in your life.

This too shall pass.

And remember - the quote above applies to happy emotions, or negative emotions, or problems that you're having.

Don't let yourself get swept up in an emotion. Don't let yourself think "this is so bad. It's never going to go away. This is my life. Now I'm doomed. This is my fate."

Remember the shortness of everything that happens.

And that also includes remember the shortness of your life. Stop getting swept up in thinking that you are the centre of the universe, recognise how small a part of the whole universe you play a part of.

This doesn't act as a way to diminish yourself and to devalue yourself. That just means that all the problems that you have are normal, human problems. So many other people have had the same problems. But that means that so many other people have overcome your problems.

So when you have a problem, and you think, "Oh, it's so unfair, why is this happened to me" recognise that there are so many people that have had exact same situation as you and lots of people are in worse and worse situations.

Pretty much always, someone has been in a worse position than you and have overcome your problem. And if they can do it, you can too. So recognise the impermanence and the shortness of everything that happens in your life. 

Stoic Evening Routine

There are two parts of the stoic evening ritual that I like to use. And one of them is really, really effective. So let's get right into it.

Review Your Day 

First of all, and every single day I do this, I sit back, and I review the day. But not only do I think back on what I've done throughout the day, once I do it again, and I do it a third time, by going over what you've done the day three times you able to dissect it in a way that most people don't do.

When you start using this technique and you start dissecting your day and reviewing what you did three times, you'll gain an insight that most other people won't have, you'll be able to dive deeper into your mind, recognising what actions you do and what decisions you make.

Now, there are three main questions that I asked myself. First of all, I say, "what did I do well today?" That includes what virtues I followed and what decisions I made that turned out well.

Then I ask "what did I do badly today?". Were there any decisions I made because I was emotionally all over the place. Which decisions weren't the best decisions? Did I act irrationally at any point?

And after I've asked myself that question, I say "How can I improve in the future?" What will I do to right this situation? What can I do make sure I make the right decision if it comes up again in the future. Now, if I've acted irrationally, and I let my emotions get the better of myself, generally, what I tend to tell myself is before making a big decision, just take five seconds to centre yourself and become a rational being like the stoic recommend, that is the first thing that you should do as part of your evening ritual. 

Rest and Relaxation

So the final thing is, you guessed it, rest and relaxation. Now, I don't want us to think of it just as that just before you go to sleep, I want you to recognise the dichotomy of control. Recognise that everything you've done in the past, and especially that day, is no longer in your control, you can't change what's happened, what you can do is change your perception about what's happened. I love the fact that you might have made wrong decisions, because that will make you more motivated and it'll give you a greater likelihood, make the right decision in the future. Learn to love the past, even if it wasn't the best day because what's gone is the past you can no longer change it.

I Tried a Stoic Morning Routine for 28 Days

After trying Marcus Aurelius' Stoic morning routine for the past 28 days, I have to say that it's starting to change my life.

Now you may be saying "how the hell do you know what Marcus Aurelius did every single morning? He doesn't have a blog or anything like that?"

Well, you're right. I can't be certain what he did, but after reading his private journal, Meditations, we have a pretty good guess at five different things he probably did every morning.

Stoic Morning Ritual 1: Voluntary Discomfort

“Set aside a certain number of days during which you shall be content with the scantiest and cheapest fare, with the coarse and rough dress. Save yourself the while: Is this the condition that I feared?”

Voluntary discomfort is a concept frequently discussed in the Philosophy of Stoicism. Summarised, it means that you should purposefully put yourself in discomfort, in order to increase mental fortitude.

When I apply this in my Stoic morning routine, I cheat - I start the evening before, not in the morning. You see, every single evening I go and I sleep on the floor. Now, this is much my girlfriend's dismay, but I do it anyway. 

How Voluntary Discomfort Affects Your Comfort Zone

The main difference I've noticed since I started doing this is that I'm generally just less scared of my comfort zone. Every single morning I'm purposely doing something that's outside of my comfort zone - trust me, sleeping on the floor is not comfortable at all. So it's telling my subconscious brain to not be so scared of going outside of that comfort zone.

Will Smith once said that “God placed the best things in life on the other side of terror". If you would like to listen to the full video of his speech, then watch this clip down below. 

Stoic Morning Ritual 2: Negative Visualisation

Now after I've woken up from the floor, I go ahead and do something which is called negative visualisation. It is basically where you sit down and you start imagining all of the different things that could go wrong in your life, all of the different negative things that you would usually push to the back of your mind. During negative visualisation, you confront them and imagine them happening to you. I know this sounds a bit weird, and it definitely contradicts the "law of attraction", but Marcus Aurelius talked about this a lot.

The quote that started me exploring a Stoic morning routine is actually one from Seneca, another philosopher who helped popularise the Philosophy of Stoicism, and it goes like this:

“What is quite unlooked for is more crushing in its effect and unexpectedness as to the weight of a disaster. The fact that it was unforeseen, has never failed to intensify a person's grief. This is a reason for ensuring that nothing ever takes us by surprise. We should project our thoughts ahead of us at every turn and have in mind every possible eventuality instead of only the usual course of events”.

When I negative visualise, I sit down for a set period of time (normally just five minutes) and I hunt around for things that could go wrong in my life. When I'm doing this, I'm not just aimlessly stuck in my head, I'm hunting for a very specific kind of emotion. The best way to describe this is a "jolt of energy" that you feel when you strike a nerve on something that really hits home.

Benefits Of Stoic Negative Visualisation

The main reason to do this is simple: by thinking of all the things that could go wrong, you're mentally preparing yourself if that thing does go wrong. So if it does go wrong, you're going to be less mentally hurt. Basically, you're preparing for all eventualities so life can never catch you off-balance.

Second of all, by thinking all the things that could go wrong, you're automatically less likely for those things to go have to go wrong because you've thought about them before. For example, if I negatively visualise myself crossing the road and getting hit by a car, the next time I'm crossing the road, I'm more aware of the negative possibility and its consequences, so I make sure I'm extra careful. 

And finally, it makes you more grateful for what you have. My girlfriend, Claire, is a Student Nurse, and recently I asked her “How does seeing unfit people in the hospital wards make you feel?” she roughly replied: “Seeing them being unable to do certain things makes me very grateful for my health and my ability to do whatever I want”. She also explained that she is less likely to become unfit and unhealthy in the future because she has seen what it has done to them and their health. Most of us aren't able to see the effects of bad life choices as easily as Claire, so we have to tap into the power of the mind to harness the benefits of negative visualisation.

Stoic Morning Ritual 3: The Stoic Art of Journaling

After I've done my negative visualisation, I take a cold shower. Now, why do I do this? Well, aside from the health benefits, the main reason I do this is that it fires me up with energy, and fuels me with motivation to go and crush the day. 

The secondary benefit of the cold shower is that it completely clears my mind and makes me think clearly and rationally. This leads perfects onto harnessing the benefits of Stoicism through journaling.

Now, we know that March Aurelius journaled through his Meditations, but I started journaling a year ago and it's completely changed my life.

Benefits of Stoic Journaling

The main reason that I journal is that it gives me the direct plan for me to crush my day. It makes the difficult things in the day that much easier. It also makes me more grateful. 

Stoic Morning Ritual 4: The Stoic Perception of Time

Now, after I've journaled, I then move on to reminding myself of the importance of time. Now the first thing I do is I tell myself that my potential is limitless or at least my potential is almost unlimited. What that means is that I can do whatever I want to, whatever I set my mind to. My potential is not capped by any external factor apart from myself. And when I tell myself that my potential is limitless, I'm automatically filled with energy to go out there and impact the world.

If your potential is truly limitless, (and I think it's so close to truly limitless) then if you harness all of your energy into doing good in the world. If you have the potential to do amazing things, then by you not doing those amazing things, then you're wasting that precious time. 

The most effective end to a Stoicism morning routine is to remind yourself of the impermanence of time.

"It is not that we have a short space of time, but that we waste much of it." - Seneca

How To Start A Life-Changing Stoicism Journal

“Journaling is like whispering to oneself and listening at the same time”

Journaling changed my life. But, being honest, the skill didn't come easy. I've taken a lot of courses and I’ve read a lot of books on how to journal. From Jim Rohn to people you've never even heard of before.

The reason I started was simple: coaches are expensive. I've paid thousands of dollars to get the right coach in front of me - and that was good… But journaling lets you coach yourself. And this is shockingly powerful, because, well, it's free. You can do it whenever you want, and wherever you want. You know yourself a lot better than any coach out there does, and actually, it's a lot of fun.

So I'm hoping to plant all of that knowledge I've consumed, as well as over 1,000 journal entries, and dump it into this blog post for you to consume, for free, in a few minutes. Right here you can learn how I changed my life through journaling, and how you can change your life through journaling starting from today.

Should I Write or Type my Stoicism Journal?

Let’s be honest, there’s something magical about writing on paper. I even know I could make a lot of money by promoting written journals, but that would be unethical. Why? Because I never write in a journal. I just use Evernote, which is an online note taking app. The best part is, it’s completely free. That’s what I advise you to do. 

Exercise 1: Weeding

Now, the first exercise you can use in your Stoic journal is called weeding. It's actually taken straight from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), the most popular (and most effective) talking therapy. The reason I've included this is because CBT is actually based on Stoicism, with a lot of parallels.

Have you ever had that kind of problem that just doesn’t go away? Maybe it's procrastination, maybe it's loneliness, maybe it's anxiety, maybe there's all of these different problems that just don't go away and they plague your life again, and again, and again. What weeding will do is it's going to let you identify that problem. Dig deep into the root and then just simply flick it out. And we're not just talking about getting rid of the symptoms, we're talking about weeding, because getting rid of the symptoms is like finding a weed in your garden and just cutting off the top. The roots are still there, and it's going to come back. What this exercise does is it's going to dig deep and just remove those problems very quickly and very easily.

Step 1: Identify problem

The first step is you define the problem that you're having. You think about it objectively: how is it actually in reality? Then you think about it subjectively, how does it make you feel? And what is your perception about the problem that you're having? That is step one. Step one is crucial as it identifies the problem in your mind and emphasises how deep rooted that particular issue is.

Step 2: Define your Problem

Step two is to summarise your identified problem in a singular sentence.

Now on coaching calls that I've done, I've had people just describe to me their life - everything that's going on in their life. And then they say, "what do you think about this", and basically, they're confused. They don't  actually know the problem that they're having. So they're just hoping by giving me context, I'll be able to solve that problem. But you can't solve the problem unless you can define it yourself. So that's what we're doing in the first few steps. And once you can define it in a simple sentence, you write that at the top of your page, you say, the problem I'm having is ___ and you summarise it very clearly.

Exercise 3: Solution to your Problem

The third step is you simply start writing about that problem, and you keep writing about it. And sometimes after three or four lines of me doing this, I have a solution to my problem. I'm able to answer it. Sometimes it takes more and I fill up the whole page. And then I come to an answer to the problem.

The reason this works is because we have these thought loops that are going on in our mind. And they go on again and again and again and again. And that's why these problems persist for years and years. But when we do this, what we're doing is we're breaking the thought pattern, and we're able to get down until we find a solution -  our brain is too emotional to think this strategically. But when we write stuff down, we're able to capture each thought, and lay a logical next thought on top of each other until we come to be simple and easy solution to that problem.

This singular exercise will completely change your life. I used to do this exercise multiple times every single day. Now, I probably do it maybe twice or three times a week. But this exercise is the perfect addition to any Stoic journal.

How to make Stoicism Journaling a Habit

Before we get into some of the more Stoic-based journaling exercises, I want to very briefly explain to you how I created the journaling habit in my life every single day because I know it's a difficult habit.

To summarise it, it all comes down to Charles Duhigg's study of habits: cue, routine and reward. Now the cue is just something that reminds you to do the events, the routine is simply doing the event, and the reward is something that you benefit from after doing the event.

The cue is going to be different for each of these journaling exercises - and I'll remind you what I do for the cue for each of these journaling exercises, so that you can use that to implement the habit. The routine is the same for each of them, it's just doing the thing. And then the reward - this is up to you to decide. It can be as simple as taking a few moments to appreciate how nice it feels to improve your life. But I like to eat some sugar-free sweets after I journal.

And that's just going to help the habit stick, because you need those three things to create a habit, and that has been scientifically proven. So think about the cue, the routine and the reward for each of these different Stoic journaling exercises, if you want to create it as a habit.

Exercise 2: Stoic Reflection

The second exercise is called reflect, and it's very simple. You're just reflecting on the past. Maybe it's the past day, maybe it's the past week, and maybe it's the past month - the point is you're drawing insights )that are often forgotten) from the past.

The cue for me doing this is right after I brush my teeth, so me finishing brushing my teeth is the cue for me to do this journaling exercise.

The reason you're going to do this is threefold. First of all, it reminds you to congratulate yourself for the things that you've done well in that set time period. Second of all, it's going to pinpoint the things that you could do better. And third of all, you're able to see if you're on track for your goals.

I wish I could tell you a little bit more information about how to do this exercise, but you'll very find a groove that suits you if you just start.

Exercise 3: Stoic Planning

The third exercise I like to do is very simple again, and it's called planning. But remember, simple doesn't mean ineffective. Most often, the simple things are the most effective things.

You're just planning ahead for the future. Every single evening, I plan tomorrow, today. I plan the next day, the day before. And what that means is you're going to be so effective that next day, so efficient with your time. You wake up knowing exactly what you need to do, exactly the step by step thing that you need to do to get you close to where you want to be in your life. You don't have to think, you simply have to do, and that really makes a difference.

The power of a Digital Calendar

I also printed out 12 A4 pieces of paper, each one has a different month on it, and I stuck it up on my wall in front of me, meaning that I can see my whole year in front of me very quickly, objectively right in front of me. And this helps me plan for that whole year ahead. And the whole benefit of doing this is your effectiveness will increase tenfold if you plan the next day or plan the year before, before it actually happens.

Now the cue for me doing this is very simple. After I finish reflecting, I plan. This means in the reflecting stage, when I'm able to pinpoint the things that I could improve on, I then plan exactly how I'm going to implement them in my life, which means that the cue for the planning stage is simply just finishing the reflection stage. That is my cue. But you can also set a cue as just simply a reminder on your phone that you need to plan tomorrow today, every single day, and this is going to completely change how effective, how efficient and how much productive you are on a day to day basis.

Exercise 4: Stoic Note-Taking

The fourth exercise is, again, very simple - note taking. Use your journal to take notes of the things you're consuming, it improves retention, it allows you to use that information again and again and again. And it's just a great thing to do. I set a rule for myself that I'm not going to watch YouTube for entertainment. Instead, I'm going to use documentaries for that. And also, if I am watching a YouTube video that I'm going to learn from, I must take notes. There are a couple of rules that I introduced, which just stops me wasting time on YouTube. But note taking is great. And I'm sure you know this.

Exercise 5: Stoicism Questions

And the final exercise is the one that completely changed my life. It all boils down to a quote I heard from Tony Robbins that said, "The quality of your life is determined by the questions that you ask yourself." And when I first heard this, I thought, "Well, that's kind of cool, but it's not beneficial to me because I don't know the kinds of questions to ask myself." But that quote is so true. And the quality of your life is directly determined by the questions you ask yourself, which means that you can level up your life, completely transform it and pivot, as today is the day that transforms your future by asking yourself the right questions.

Now, by asking yourself the right questions, you are getting knowledge from inside your brain instead of outside your brain. Most of the time when we're stuck on a problem, we Google it, we YouTube it, we ask the people around us, getting external help for our internal situation. In reality, the huge pile of gold lies inside your own brain. And when you dive deep into that, that is when stuff starts to change.

To help you with this exercise I've compiled a huge list of 50 of these powerful questions taken from different courses, books, quotes that I've read, over 100 different books, and I've taken the best questions and put it into 50 that you can download as a PDF by clicking the link below. Now, if you want to level up your life, you're serious about improving your life, then be sure to go through the 50 questions.

These things completely changed my life, and I know they will for you, too.
