Epictetus was born nearly 2,000 years ago in Hierapolis (present-day Pamukkale in Turkey) as a slave in a wealthy household.

Epictetus discovered philosophy through the Stoic Musonius Rufus who became his teacher and mentor. Later, Epictetus obtained his freedom shortly after emperor Nero’s death and started teaching philosophy in Rome for nearly 25 years.

The Stoics believed in Four Virtues: Justice. Temperance. Wisdom. Courage.

Compared to these things, everything else is cheap, if not worthless. Every situation, every moment is an opportunity to exemplify these forms of human excellence. There is no challenge, no problem so big that it does not call for courage, moderation, justice or wisdom.

To help you keep them in mind and spur you to always practice them, Daily Stoic is proud to announce the minting of our newest coin: the Four Virtues Medallion.

The front of the medallion features a custom-designed seal with four elements representing the Four Virtues: a lion (Courage), a man sprinkling water into a jug of wine (Temperance), a set of scales (Justice), and an owl (Wisdom). On the back is an admonition not to exchange the Four Virtues for others—for there is no other set of virtues that will serve you better than these.

3 days left to join us at the start of the Daily Stoic Alive Time Challenge.⁣
⁣
Given excess time, most people elect to ‘kill it’ by watching Netflix, mindlessly scrolling on their phone or complaining about being bored. That’s dead time. And we all know plenty of people who live most of their lives in dead time, because we are these people. ⁣
⁣
Of course, it doesn’t have to be that way. We can also use excess time to learn and improve. To invest in ourselves. Learn new skills. This is alive time. Making the best out of every spare moment of time instead of wasting it or killing it. ⁣
⁣
This is a choice we face regularly…but it is even more pressing to us today. ⁣
⁣
That’s why we created the Daily Stoic Alive Time Challenge. To give you the best Stoic wisdom, tools, and motivation to transform yourself over the next 14 days and arm you with skills and an attitude that will help you turn this negative quarantine into a positive experience. To give you the exact outline to create the most ‘alive time’ you can in our current situation. ⁣
⁣
What you will receive is a set of 14 extremely actionable challenges, presented one per day, that you can do from anywhere, built around the most timeless Stoic wisdom. ⁣

Amor fati is a mindset that you take on for making the best out of anything that happens: Treating each and every moment—no matter how challenging—as something to be embraced, not avoided. To not only be okay with it, but love it and be better for it. So that like oxygen to a fire, obstacles and adversity become fuel for your potential.

That's why we created the amor fati medallion. So you can reach into your pocket and feel the medallion and be reminded of it's powerful message.

The flame on the front is inspired by Marcus Aurelius’s timeless wisdom: “a blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it.” The back features an excerpt of the great philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s formula for greatness: “Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it….but love it.” Learn more at DailyStoic.com/AF
