The obstacle is the way : the timeless art of turning trials into triumph / Ryan Holiday.


Many iconic figures throughout history--from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Richard Wright to Steve Jobs--were often placed in nearly impossible situations that turned out to be the platforms for astounding triumphs. They were not exceptionally brilliant, lucky, or gifted. Their success in overcoming extreme obstacles was the result of a timeless set of philosophical principles that great men and women have always followed. Now Ryan Holiday unpacks those lessons and reframes them for today's world, building on the wisdom of the ancient Stoics and a rich trove of examples. He shows us how to turn obstacles into advantages, through controlling our perceptions, swift and energetic action, and true force of will. -- WorldCat.
