TO LIVE FOR SOMETHING HIGHER THAN YOURSELF
A PATH OF DISCIPLINE, REFLECTION AND SELF MASTERY
THE ANCIENT GREEKS VALUED
ATHLETIC & INTELLECTUAL
A good citizen was virtuous in mind and in body; training was a civic duty, rather than a lifestyle choice.
The concept of “mind, body and soul” was not just a slogan, it was a way of life!
To perform at your high level every day, we have created three archetypes to align yourself with to bring clarity into your life and how to approach it.
Devotion to the development of your character, intellect, virtues and wisdom.
Learning is essential, humility is crucial. You lead by action, you stay in a students mindset, as you honor the path of devotion to doing the next right thing.
The highest state of a Stoic is the Sage <> “Sophos". You know yourself and your truth so well that you are unaffected by external events, people and circumstances.
Tune into your instincts, intuition and inner knowing. Explore what the eye can’t see, a high power there will always be.
Develop the skill and learn how to surrender to something higher than yourself. Clarity will appear in the form of answers, directions, people and things.
The highest state of the Mystic is connection with your Spirit | Daimon. Believed in ancient Greece to be your inner truth, knowing, and soul. A whisper and guide in your life.
As the Spartans did, train, discipline, and dedicate yourself, as you were on a misson to save the lives on the ones you love.
Live for something higher than yourself and your own selfish needs. Caring for you body includes an Athlete's diet, rest, sleep, supplementation etc.
As the highest state of a Spartan is the Honorable Gentleman | Kalos Kagathos. You act with honor, discipline, grace, generosity, confidence, humility and elegance. You are a leader and a role model, you help, protect and give back to others.
Become Unfuckwithable with an Open Heart
Become unaffected by people, circumstances an events,
while showing unconditional love for yourself, others and life!
THE FOUR STOIC VIRTUES
Stoicism is an ancient greek philosophy that dates back to before the birth of Christ. The foundation of Christianity and the "four cardinal virtues" are directly taken from Stoicism.
DO THE RIGHT THING
Regardless of the circumstances
DO THE HARD THING
Even when you don't feel like it
BE AWARE AND PRESENT
Even when there are distractions
BE MORALLY STRONG
Stand for something or fall for anything
ACTION OVER TALKING
"Talk no more about what a good man is, be one."
