Through observing people who are leading a creative life helps us in identifying the elements of our expertise, passion and our understanding. What can be easy to overlook would be on the inner system in a person, which is the set of principles which govern a person’s behavior and mind.
Philosophy not only teaches us how we could live well and be better humans, but this may also help to overcome the trials of life. There are some schools that are thought to be more abstract thinking and there are some tools that are in fact practical immediately on the current endeavors. Some benefits of stoicism would be:
Care Lesson What Others Think
A difficult thing about us humans is when we stop caring about the opinions of other people’s opinions. It can be difficult because it means that you are rejecting other people’s opinions and means that you are living a life on your own according to what you think is right. Having to live a life on your own terms, in fact, means that you take responsibility for your very own actions and you are not deferring things that you need to do for your future. Doing what other people say is actually a lot easier compared to living and knowing that you have made the wrong decision.
Remembering What is Within your Control
All people actually carry hopes, dreams, fears, and frustrations. We actually hope to get the job that we want and fear that it won’t happen. We tend to end up frustrated by such upbringing, the current circumstances as well as the people who are around us. Life, in fact, can be difficult and when you consider looking around, it is not really that hard to find the things which help in validating the frustrations.
Stoicism is actually remembering what is within our control and what is not. This means that the things of which are frustrating to us may not be frustrating themselves. These are simply things and we are the ones who get frustrated. Stoicism will help us in letting something from outside a person’s control that affects their peace of mind.
Stop Being Anxious
Anxiety actually is very rampant today. We actually don’t feel like we are doing what we need to be doing. Due to this, we tend to fret more about the past and end up neglecting the present and having fears of our future. A problem with this is that it’s easier said than done. The future, in fact, is soon to come and the present is where we could do something in order to change the future outcomes.
One problem is that we usually don’t take the time in thinking and differentiating between things which are and are not in our control, which is the reason why some people take action inefficiently and in a blind manner. They also tend to worry more about things that are pointless. Through learning what we truly have in control, we tend to learn what we could take action with, which will then allow us to get greater tranquility and have peace of mind.
