The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday

Stoicism is an ancient philosophy based on Marcus Aurelius' commentary around a person's perception of obstacles that arise between a person and their goals. The basis of this philosophy states that obstacles, no matter how hard they may appear to overcome, are put in front of you for a reason. And your ability to navigate over or around them will lead you to grow in a way that will prepare you for future endeavors. It's a pretty interesting way to think about the world, and Ryan Holiday does an excellent job making it relatable through history and daily life. He gives copious examples of persons who have used it in the distant and more recent past, and motivates you, the reader, to include this perception-based philosophy into your current decision-making process. We recommend this for anyone looking to improve their daily outlook and be motivated to do what they love.
