Discipline is Destiny: The Power of Self Control

By Ryan Holiday

Discipline is Destiny is the second book in a Stoic Virtue series by the author, covering courage, temperance, justice, and wisdom.

It draws on the stories of historical figures we can emulate as pillars of self-discipline, such as Lou Gehrig, Queen Elizabeth II, boxer Floyd Patterson, Marcus Aurelius, and writer Toni Morrison, as well as the cautionary tales of Napoleon, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Babe Ruth.

Through these examples, the book teaches us the importance of self-discipline and balance, as well as the dangers of luxury and hedonism.
