Monday Motivation: Look Inside To Level Up
STOUT Inspiration + Action To Accelerate Your Week
Get inspired by Aristotle’s insightful philosophy then use our Stout Action Plan to level up by looking within.
Aristotle was a Greek philosopher who founded the Lyceum and the Peripatetic school of philosophy and, along with his teacher Plato, is considered to be a “Father of Western Philosophy”.
Aristotle’s intellectual range was vast, covering most of the sciences and many of the arts, including biology, botany, chemistry, ethics, history, logic, metaphysics, rhetoric, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, physics, poetics, political theory, psychology, and zoology.
As the founder of the field of logic, Aristotle was the first to develop a formalized system for reasoning. His writings in ethics, political theory, metaphysics and the philosophy of science continue to be studied, and his work remains a significant in philosophical debate still today.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
