Embrace your Will to Power

Each individual, Friedrich Nietzsche believed, has a responsibility to become their own hero. Less human dissatisfaction comes from weakness than from the denial of strength.

Discover your true desires

Exercise : Make a list of your most profound desires. (Be sure to include the ones that may seem shameful or taboo — the things you want even though you don’t want anyone else to know you want them.) Are you actively pursuing them? How can you begin to integrate your desires with your current activities? Or do you need a big, radical shift?

Overcome obstacles

Exercise : Identify a major challenge or obstacle you faced: a mismatched job, a poisonous relationship, or anything else that required a concerted struggle to overcome. Reflect on how it shaped your character and resolve. How can the discipline you learned from that experience help you get the life you want?

Challenge herd conformity and conventional morality

Exercise : Examine your moral beliefs, paying special attention to the ones that seem so obvious to you that you barely notice them. Do they serve you, or vice versa? Are there any you’d like to reevaluate or challenge? Remember: According to a Nietzschean worldview, you can believe what you want, and it’s better to do it on purpose.

Get excited about your creativity

To come into your full power requires accepting some heavy responsibilities, letting go of self-limiting beliefs and excuses that keep you small, and a willingness to get excited about your life again like you were as a child.

This process is not without risk. When you break social norms, no matter how gracefully or respectfully you do it, there are people around you who will resent you for breaking their tacit prohibition on doing things they choose to believe they don’t have the power to do themselves.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
