What Do You Desire Thought Provoking Motivation By Alan Watts. Adversity. 15 Things Stopping You from Moving Forward. In a culture that seeks quick results, we must learn the beauty of effort, patience, and perseverance.

15 Things Stopping You from Moving Forward

Be strong, present, and steadfast. Have you ever told yourself that you’re going to make something happen and then nothing happened? That’s because you didn’t follow-through. You didn’t have the right rituals in place – little things you do each day that build up and gradually condition your body and mind to make things happen. Rituals define you. If you’re out of shape and overweight, you have different rituals than someone who’s physically fit. This may be a bit of a generalization, but it’s not far from the truth for the average able-bodied person. In all walks of life, you don’t suddenly become successful. Failure occurs in the same way.

‘Stoicism in the Service Industry’ by Christopher Edwards

Remain calm on the surface and paddle like hell underneath.”– Michael Caine A successful server is like the duck in Michael Caine’s quote. Not everyone in the Service Industry stays calm though. There is a spirited concoction of challenges swarming about, both interpersonal and mental for the Service Industry professional. I’ve been working in the restaurant service industry, in a variety of Front of the House (FOH) positions, from casual-high volume to fine dining, for about 14 years now. Challenges On A Busy Shift I will first walk you through the common situations, pace, and challenges a server encounters during a busy shift at a casual high-volume restaurant. “First, do not be upset: all things follow the nature of the Whole, and in a little while you will be no one and nowhere… Next, concentrate on the matter in hand and see it for what it is. What Service Can Be Like It’s the middle of a dinner rush. You drop the check at Table B.

Like this: Scientists Trace Society's Myths to Primordial Origins. The Greek version of a familiar myth starts with Artemis, goddess of the hunt and fierce protectress of innocent young women.

Scientists Trace Society's Myths to Primordial Origins

Artemis demands that Callisto, “the most beautiful,” and her other handmaidens take a vow of chastity. Zeus tricks Callisto into giving up her virginity, and she gives birth to a son, Arcas. Zeus’ jealous wife, Hera, turns Callisto into a bear and banishes her to the mountains. Meanwhile Arcas grows up to become a hunter and one day happens on a bear that greets him with outstretched arms. Stoic vs. Buddhist Mindfulness by Mary Braun.

By Mary Braun The first time I tried Buddhist meditation, I immediately felt my trachea shrink.

Stoic vs. Buddhist Mindfulness by Mary Braun

Only a tiny, insufficient bit of air could move in or out. To learn Buddhist meditation, I had listened to a podcast. It said to notice and accept without judgement whatever happened. So, that is what I did. Being the diligent sort, I tried meditating again the next day. I could not understand what was going on.

At the time, I was fresh out of medical school. As happens with many Stoics, my Stoic practice developed spontaneously as a response to difficulties in my life. A couple of decades and several life changes later, my boyfriend introduced me to Stoic philosophy. At this point, I rely on my Stoic techniques when things start to go wrong inside my head.
