How To Take Control Over Your Life?
We All Seek Stability, But What Is The Best Way To Go About Achieving It?
Stability is a serene state; one in which we are able to exert complete control over our commonplace decisions and see the fruits of our effort almost instantaneously.
Whilst in this state, we are unable to be jaded by the normalities of life and can maintain a level of fulfillment despite the detriment enveloping our lives. It truly is what many know as “the zone”, and yet many are unaware of how to strategically reach this position.
Of course, despite the eagerness you might possess regarding this state, it is unsustainable over long periods; like any psychological entity, the ability of one to supplement the necessity of mental stability decreases. It gradually fades over time but is able to be brought back under managed conditions.
To truly dive into this topic, one has to understand that our subconscious openly seeks a standard of equilibrium.
Our unconscious mind can not tolerate highly positive or negative emotions, and always attempts to bring about the ambivalent-of course, our mundane state of life is the easiest to manage over longer periods.
However, what is best for the subconscious is not necessarily best for the bliss that you seek; fulfillment and regularity are polar figures, and with one comes the sacrifice of the other.
I sought a solution and eventually realized that there is a supposed philosophical “hack” you can utilize to achieve this. To be able to maintain this state, you must become naturally negative; your thoughts must lie in nihilism and pessimism. This might seem to be detrimental advice, but by doing as such, you are setting a counterweight upon which you can stand in the domain of fulfillment.
The satisfaction you feel from self-gratification and accomplishment displaces there internally negative thoughts and allows you to remain in a state of stability while remaining happy. Moreover, it provides the secondary benefit of allowing you to push forward to avoid disappointment at any cost.
Our cynical ideals are precisely what provides us with negative reinforcement. THe system under which we operate is one of the emotions and as you learn to play on it, you can bring about massive internal growth and escape the abyss of self-deprecation.
