23 Biohacks and Uncommon Mindsets for Superhuman Will Power

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Life Hacking Will Power
Aristotle said

"I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self."

For most of history true mastery of self control and willpower was regarded as a mythological act or feat of accomplishment that could only be reached by individuals who were more than human. Today, we are exceedingly lucky to live in a time when attitudes have matured and the science of biology has quantified the factors that determine the degree of self control we have and practice. This article will present some cutting edge biohacking techniques along with some rare philosophical mindsets for significantly increasing your will power, focus and ability to resist addictive behaviors.

A Story about Self Control...

mormontemplateDavid was my best friend for 4 years, towards the end of that time it became increasingly evident that he was a non violent, high functioning psychopath.

David was on the path to become a doctor. David at any given time had at least one woman intensely in love with him, he had to pay for abortions at least 3 times that he told me about. To this day he remains the most charming person I have ever met.

David partied; he loved nightclubs, bottle service, cocaine and occasionally smoking crystal meth. He had a contagious ability to energize any room. 

The only other passion that matched his appetite for intoxicants was his religiosity. He came from an intensely religious mormon family (who I knew well, they were some of classiest, most generous people I've ever known). Sometimes in a drunken fervor he would explain to me how he was one day going to become a god of his own earth (this is part of the Mormon religion).

David carried an atlas of guilt on his shoulders. As his best friend and confidant, I heard from him almost daily about how bad he felt about his alcoholism, his wasteful spending, and his cheating on his lovely mormon fiance. Despite being incredibly hard working, smart, charming, healthy, financially stable, surrounded by caring family, and getting laid all the damn time David was profoundly unhappy because of his lack of will power when it came to his vices.

By the End of this Article...

Practicing self control will be demystified for you, beyond a pseudo-spiritual lifestyle of abstinence from things that feel amazing. Self control is not an ongoing process of self flagellation, it is an automatic system for making good decisions. Self control is like a software operating system your day to day thoughts and impulses run on. By the end of this article you will understand how to re-install, behaviorally configure and upgrade your software. Next time you face a task, temptation or challenge requiring a high degree of self control you will be able to confidently choose from a variety powerful tools to handle it.

AristippusEthical Hedonism

A philosophy first articulated Aristippus of Cyrene, a pupil of Socrates. The core belief of hedonism is that...

All people should do everything in their power to achieve the maximum amount of pleasure possible to them.

It is also the idea that every person's pleasure should far surpass their amount of pain.

Ethical hedonism, is the idea that we should have a dual focus on maximizing pleasure within the bounds of what is ethical. Therefor an ethical hedonist is a person who seeks to maximize their own pleasure but only if it's morally right to do so.

The reason this is such a lifehack is because, by prioritizing ethics you actually get to be more hedonistic, both in qauntity and qaulity.

Aristippus wasn't big believer in an after life so he figured that as long as you were above ground you might as well be enjoying yourself. He held the idea that pleasure is the highest good, I mostly agree!

The Heroin Addicts of Swansea & Uselessness of Positive Mental Attitude

Positive Mental Attitude
Contrary to what the personal development industry and countless self help platitudes will tell you, a positive mental attitude, on it's own, really is quite useless. This point is driven home in the heart breakingly raw documentary below about heroin addicts in the city of Swansea in the UK. A self admitted junkie in the documentary talks extensively about a positive mental attitude. The junkie talks about:

  • Waking up in the morning with a positive mental attitude.
  • Maintaining a positive mental attitude while he is not using.
  • He even made a poster on his wall that says P.M.A to remind him.

At the end of the film we see him as the truly tortured soul he is relapse into heroin abuse, completely failed by his positive mental attitude... The documentary is about an hour long and is well worth the watch, if just to put your own problems in perspective.
