What is Stoicism?
Every human mind has different nature of thinking process. Each aspect of our life is influenced by our tendencies, habits, preference of comfort zones and … we all wish to avoid risk factors. We always tend to take up safe and easy ways for survival. The Greek philosophers originated the idea of stoicism who analyzed and explained this concept with the philosophy of the military professionals who strive in the battlefield against the enemies till their last breath. Even in adverse conditions when the opponent almost ensures the victory, a true military leader shows the path of survival by assuring that everything would be alright. The end result of the battle is secondary in this aspect, but the act of concealing the fear and danger with positive assurance is the stark reality of stoicism.
