Ancient China… Ancient Greece… right here, right now… Same shit.

The thing about all the self-help guidance and advice you hear is that the same things have been told for thousands of years. Though the language might have changed, the messages remain exactly the same.

What they were telling each other about how to live a good life in Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Through the middle ages, to the Renaissance to the 1800s, to the 1900s and to now, is basically all the same.

You and I are basically no different to people in those times. Okay, so some of the shit around us has changed, but are human exactly like they were. As they faced the challenges of being human, so do we.

Confucius, Socrates, Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, Shakespeare, Thoreau, Tim Ferriss… There’s no difference between them. They are all the same creature and all taught how to live a good life.

We all have the answers to what we’re looking for and want. And they lie within us.
