  1. Love the video. However I find it incredibly hard to live according to this philosophy. How do you actually implement it? It seems like I watch something like this but inedibly fall back into the same wasteful actions.

  2. Great video, great channel…. I really appreciate this! Just subscribed my friend

  3. What if you want to die and can’t find a reason to stay anymore.

  4. Today I was posting on social media about my need to say "Thank You" for all that I have more ferociously, frequently and fervently. The mood for gratitude. Then I clicked on this video.

    I know many, if not all of you chagrin using social media, to each his own.

    However this message reminds me of something from my days as a young soldier, how death can seek us out at any moment, since we're here to also deal death.

    Be grateful, enjoy the moment were in and live abundantly.

  5. Don’t waste a second of life. Be meaningful💝 be thankful

  12. Ryan, there are 20 countries that speaks Spanish, would you please added subtitles in Spanish, thanks

  13. One of my favorite books of all time. Seneca's ultimate advice is to retire into your study and read philosophy so that you can teach others the best way to live and the best way to die. Ryan is already doing it, I guess. Love these little videos from the Daily Stoic.✌️

  14. This is amazing to me, this channel only have 12 k subscribers when the message is so powerful, Ryan you change my life for the better 2 years ago when I was In a very low point, thanks to ego is the enemy and then the obstacle is the way obviously they I turn to the masters but than you very much keep spreading this amazing philosophy.
