How to Suppress Ourselves!
The media have bombarded us that we have to love ourselves, our traits, our situation, and our pain, as it is. The “self-love” mantra is what everyone has been exposed to, at least a few times. It encourages us to build a self-loving attitude and community around ourselves, cherish who we really are, and ignore the negativity that accosts us.
That approach might have been helpful for the past few decades because of the abundance of opportunities you could embark on. But now, we don’t live in a society that appreciates tranquility or motionlessness. We always have to DO something, conquer challenges, or tolerate agony passively. Going to isolation in praise of self-care isn’t a solution to the tedious or excruciating issues we encounter.
It’s no longer about us; it’s about the causes we’re involved in. It’s about more than ourselves; it’s all a subpart of the concerns we might even not sign up for.
It’s still plausible or even socially acceptable to put ourselves first, but what would our legacy be with that in action? Is this what we want to dedicate our lives to? If not, we have to develop some additional skills which would help us to enhance our stamina and make us go further. It’s always been about the time you remain in the game without losing track of the path we’re in.
After all those talks with successful entrepreneurs, I concluded that persistence’s dominance or motivation. We can do a spontaneous action or a temporary motion with an impulse or a brief encouragement. However, we’re hardly able to remain on the path by just a thunderbolt of emotion. What distinguishes the winners from the hard-workers is the trait of wise consistency.
Winners, by any means, have gained the expertise of selfless ignorance toward their destructive emotions. We should master our impulses and learn how to suppress them when we need to undertake our responsibilities and the grinds we have to do to achieve our desired outcomes. Somedays, you might want to leave, abandon everything behind, cry, or even demonstrate some rage acts. But the thing is, at those moments, we should consider the path we came, the journey we’ve been through, the efforts we took, and more importantly, the purpose ahead of us, what we did all we did for.
Of course, this approach would have its own collateral damages toward your personal life, but consider this as a temporary career acceleration endeavor. We sacrifice some instant gratifications for the greater good.
