Friedrich Nietzsche - How To Achieve Self Mastery (Existentialism)
In this video we bring you how to achieve self mastery from the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. Friedrich Nietzsche believed that the fundamental drive of all living things is the so-called Will to Power, which is often seen as the impulse to overcome one’s environment, the impulse to grow, expand, and explore, but the greatest power one can possess, in Nietzsche’s view, is not the power over other people or environment, but the power over your own self. Mastering yourself is the foundation of all the other skills and powers you have and it is the one you have to focus on first in order to achieve greatness.
To help you understand the ways in which you can achieve self-mastery, here are 7 lessons we can learn from the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche:
01. Obey yourself first
02. Strengthen your will
03. Master your temper
04. Master your decision-making process
05. Master your body
06. Master your heart
07. Find happiness in self-mastery
I hope you enjoyed watching these 7 ways you can achieve self-mastery from the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche and find them helpful in your life.
Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher, poet, essayist, and cultural critic. He is considered to be one of the most daring and greatest thinkers of all time. His writings on truth, morality, language, aesthetics, cultural theory, history, nihilism, power, consciousness, and the meaning of existence have exerted an enormous influence on Western philosophy and intellectual history. He was one of the biggest precursors of existentialism, which emphasises the existence of the individual person as a free and responsible agent, determining their own development through acts of will. By his famous words “God is dead!”, Nietzsche moved the focus of philosophy from metaphysics to the material world and to the individual as a responsible person for his own life. Friedrich Nietzsche wrote several books like The Birth of a Tragedy, Human, All Too Human, The Dawn, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil, Twilight of the Idols, The Will to Power, The Antichrist, and many more. His teachings have shaped the lives of many people; from psychologists to poets, dancers to social revolutionaries.
