Reframe The Way You Think About Pain

A shift in mindset as to what you consider pleasurable can have a powerful impact on your life.

You can reframe pleasure as an aftereffect of triumph over temptations and other acts of self-discipline.

You can expand your definition of pleasure to include long-term fulfillment and satisfaction that comes as a result of hard work, discipline, and delayed gratification.

You can seek pleasure and meaning, rather than mindless pleasure on its own.

While a hedonist’s philosophy involves seeing suffering as evil and considering pain as something you must avoid at all costs, what will help sharpen your self-discipline is to instead reframe your view of pain as a requisite to the achievement of worthwhile goals.

You can expand your definition of suffering to include those necessary to go through on the road to meaningful ends.
