The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph – Audiobook Review
This book by Ryan Holiday is inspirational. I kept listening to the audiobook again and again during my commute to work. Well, I do like reading, but as busy life goes, I believe audiobook is more readily available while driving. The book written by the author stems from his own inspiration from the work of Marcus Aurelius, one of the five great Roman emperors. The author referenced several real-life heroes, leaders, and entrepreneur of our time, including but not limited to, Arnold Schwarzenegger, General Grant, Abraham Lincoln, John Rockefeller, George Washington, among many others. Each lesson is a gem to hear and live by. This work really introduces me to the world of stoicism, and thus also helped me opened my eyes to the importance of self-awareness and the journey to self-discovery.
