In 2019, after two decades of professional stock market trading and because of a single decision, Joan Pont lost all his capital.
That money was for his family's future, so the psychological blow was terrible.
Financial or material loss is equivalent to the loss of a loved one, and the mourning can be just as long and difficult to overcome.
Joan needed psychological help, but she did not have to go to more than two sessions.
The answer is that his work had, to some extent, shielded him against failure, he had found a balance and knew how to use it to overcome problems.
Stoic philosophy has a maxim: You cannot control everything that is going to happen to you, but you can control what you think about those events.
This book is a vital journey through the great uncertainties that affect human beings: death, love, children and health. Facing them with serenity and balance is something that will lead to a fulfilling existence.
The COVID-19 pandemic has altered our concept of security as a species and has caused great imbalances in our expectations for the future, but a stoic outlook will help you to regain your balance and your enthusiasm for moving forward.
CRISES ARE A STOIC'S PARADISE.
Joan Pont lives on the island of Mallorca. A former bodyguard for military authorities and a stockbroker, he now devotes himself exclusively to literature.
