Understand Yourself Through Discipline - Deepstash

Understand Yourself Through Discipline

We must not forget to reflect on how we truly feel, to assess what we are aiming for and if we are capable of reaching what’s best for us.

Look towards others for guidance, but don’t forget we experience life differently and comparing yourself to others leads to a less satisfying life. It takes strength to be set on your goals, but it takes even more strength to accept that plans change and that your well-being is more important than the plan you made a few years ago.

MORE IDEAS FROM 5 Stoic lessons from Epictetus's Enchiridion (Handbook) to live by daily

Difficulties Breed Wisdom

Your judgment concerning a challenge or difficulty will determine the outcome of that incident on your mental, emotional and physical state.

Difficulties test our values and create, or solidify our morals. Treat everything as something you can learn from, and you will educate yourself on the art of living a balanced, undisturbed life.

Live And Flourish

Only say what is important, do not try to explain to others how much you know or how much you have accomplished. Show them through your actions and work towards not been affected by their opinion.

A happy person who has something that you lack will never show it off. Humility builds character; it allows one to grow and prosper without stressing about what others think.

Timing Is Everything

We have to go after what we want, but sometimes life differs from our expectations. The environment, the circumstances, and other people may all have incompatibilities that do not coincide with our dreams.

Sometimes it takes time for all the variables to line up and to work in your favor. Timing is everything; and only when you are patient, humble and dedicated, can success be attained.

Don't Participate In Negativity

Negativity, hate and hurtful critiques need not be shared or carried forward in our lives. Speaking against abusive behaviors is necessary, but actively looking to gossip and antagonize others fosters discrimination and division.

Thus, we must keep a good company and not say all we think.

Timing is everything

Often we have everything in our life planned out, but rarely does it ever go in the direction you'd want it to go. We are never going to get everything we want at the time we want it to happen and that's okay.

Life takes us somewhere we would never anticipate but timing is everything. When we are patient, humble, and dedicated, we can attain success through and through.

Stoic Philosophy

Stoicism acknowledges the challenges we face and teaches us practical lessons so that we may overcome whatever stands in our way. By taking a practical approach to happiness, we learn how to maintain it for longer periods of time and help others do the same.

Life as a narrow bridge

"The world is a narrow bridge and the important thing is to not be afraid" - Hebrew prayer.

The world we live in is uncertain and full of risks and it's easy to get scared and look down instead of looking forward. But if you peer over to the side of the bridge, you lose the motivation to continue, you freeze up and stop making good decisions.
