"Any person who makes you angry becomes your master" - Epictetus

Showing anger might feel good in the moment. The raw release of emotion often helps us to feel like we’re being heard. 

You might feel like anger helps you to display your power, but the truth is that showing anger is actually showing weakness. 

Epictetus, the stoic philosopher, wrote that “anyone who makes you angry becomes your master.” Anger causes you to throw all your cards on the table, and then your opponents know how to pull your strings. 

In this episode, I explain why you need to control your anger and avoid showing your cards. I talk about strategies you can use to begin recognizing how to control your anger, and I take you through several books you can read about how to form better strategies. 

At the end of the day the goal is to win as individuals, as a veteran community, and as a country. Controlling anger and thinking more strategically will help us on all of these fronts. 

Books I discuss in this podcast: 

Total Recall by Arnold Schwarzenegger

48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene

Enchridion by Epictetus

Make America Grateful Again with Michael Reagan
