Why we should embrace & celebrate stoic struggle – the most important mental model for today!

Today’s elites were all yesterday’s strugglers. The VC with the Midas touch & board member with a tiny apartment in Malabar Hill was burning the midnight oil to complete his CA in rural Rajasthan; that Bangalore software A-lister was scavenging for engg. entrance books & fighting prejudices in coastal Andhra; & the e-commerce tycoon was a small-time boy from Western UP is the son of a petty merchant who had nothing but dreams.

They were all strugglers who focussed on what resources they got – and used those to build themselves up.

Stoicism is a way of life of not worrying about what we don’t control and focusing our energy on the present and what’s in our heart & brain & muscles.

Stoics are always emotionally sorted; stay focussed on their present – their customers, not the competition – never too far in the future or past; and are always expanding their locus of control.

We must give ourselves, our team, our child the attitude to constantly strive, scrounge & build for today. The money will not stay – experience is a distant dream – it’s the clear-headed struggle that will give us the wings for the journey & prosperity in the future!

We must build our inner stoic & struggler!
