How To Become Outcome Independent
Stoicism is Greco-Roman philosophy with the goal of accepting reality as the key to inner peace. Essentially, Stoicism is a philosophy of maintaining Frame. I’ll focus now on how to use it to become Outcome Independent.
When confronted with a problem, ask yourself if it is something outside your control, or in your control. If the problem is outside your control, then conclude that since there is nothing you can do about it, you shouldn’t worry.
Accept that, and move on to other things. There is no point in wasting energy if you can’t change the outcome.
On the other hand, if something is under your control, then, there is also no reason to worry because you can deal with the problem – it’s under your control.
That is all there is to staying calm when facing problems: if something is outside your control, don’t waste energy on it. If something is inside your control, figure out what you can do about it, work hard at it, and that’s it.
The Stoics noticed that there is one power that you have to conquer all these problems. This post is about that power. This is power nobody can ever take away from you. This power is the key to having Frame, Outcome Independence, passing all the shit tests, and getting all the sex you want.
“Man is disturbed not by things, but by the views he takes of them.” – Epictetus
We have the power to redefine problems. Others might try to define problems for us, but we should always reject that, it gives away that power. Always define the problem in terms of what is under your control, and what isn’t.
This way you always have Outcome Independence.
By redefining the problem such that the burden is on you, it means you can’t blame others anymore for your lack of success, you must face the challenge, you have no excuses now. This is what is so hard about this: it just reminds you are always the captain, even when you are drunk.
You are the only person that defines the problems in your life. You do so in such a way you that the burden of overcoming challenges becomes all yours. You don’t blame others, you don’t beg others. But you put all your energy on solving that problem you defined and waste none in worrying about what you can’t control.
Most people can’t do this. But then again most people are fucking retards so no surprise there.
Redefine problems always in such a way that you take the responsibility for them and fully control their outcome. This places the burden of overcoming challenges on YOU, but also, frees you from having to beg others to do what you want. This is Outcome Independence. This creates attraction. This is masculine and this is part of becoming a good leading figure.
As always thanks for reading and until next time.
