“Every habit and capability is confirmed and grows in its corresponding actions, walking by walking, and running by running… therefore, if you want to do something, make a habit of it.” —Epictetus

“You get what you deserve. Instead of being a good person today, you choose instead to become one tomorrow.” —Marcus Aurelius

We all know those people who seem to go through life effortlessly. Everything just seems to come naturally to them: career success, great personal relationships, physical and mental fitness.

You might ask yourself, why can’t that be me? What am I missing that’s holding me back?

The answer is simple: good habits.

And it’s not effortless. They planted seeds long ago that now bear fruit. But what’s possible for them is possible for you. If, of course, you’re willing to make some changes. 

Good habits make success possible. Whether you’re trying to get a promotion, meet new people, or look and feel healthy, a regimen of good habits is the surest path forward. If you don’t have good habits, everything becomes a constant struggle as you fight against yourself.

The Stoics knew this. How do you think Marcus Aurelius ruled over the largest empire on earth? How did Epictetus endure and triumph over slavery? How did Seneca become the greatest writer of his era? How do you think Cato led troops in battle and to victory?

We can teach you these habits--which will not only make you more successful, but help you thrive in any and every environment, personally and professionally. 

How do your habits stack up? How much closer to your goals would you be if you adopted the habits you’ve always wanted a year ago? Six months ago? Six days ago? Think about how much different your life would be.

Well don’t let another year go by. Start that change TODAY with our new course Habits for Success, Habits for Happiness.

Begin better habits today!

Habits for Success, Habits for Happiness

Habits for Success, Habits for Happiness is a framework for overhauling your habits and establishing (and keeping) new and good ones. In six weeks, you will become a new version of yourself—one who is equipped to take on all the challenges you currently face, and any new ones that come your way.

You’ll learn from some of the smartest, most effective men and women in history:

- It’s Marcus Aurelius, waking up every morning on campaign in pen the Meditations, a philosophical work which has lasted through the ages.

- It’s Epictetus, who made a habit of learning, even as a slave—and continued to do so as head of one of the preeminent philosophical schools in ancient Greece.

- It’s Seneca, who was active in politics, a playwright, an advisor to the emperor, and a prolific letter writer, exercise enthusiast, and relentless reader.

- It’s Bill Gates, who in his twenties gave up listening to music and watching TV, recognizing they were triggering his terrible procrastination habit. 

- It’s Winston Churchill, who wrote over 40 books, painted more than 500 paintings, and learned the craft of bricklaying… in between his terms as Britain’s prime minister.

- It’s Twyla Tharp, who founded a company, choreographed dances that are performed around the world, written bestselling books and gets to the gym every morning to workout for several hours.

All of these examples are designed to show one thing: that we all have the power not only to take on the kind of habits that fuel our productivity and entrench our gains each day, but to actually make them stick. And you can wield that power, too.
