In today's guided meditation, we focus on the ancient Greek method for remaining calm and confident, no matter what you are challenged with: When undertaking the fulfillment of any goal, Stoics apply a very clever technique called "Hupexairesis" (meaning 'Exception' in Greek). The "Reserve Clause", as it is known, means adding the caveat “Fate permitting” or "God permitting" to our plans to achieve a certain goal.
This can help you in many ways:
1. You avoid disappointment if your plans don't work out.
2. You maintain equanimity (a balanced spirit) in the face of adversity so you can think more clearly, and find solutions.
3. Although you pursue your goal with passion, at the same time, you are inwardly free of the result, and this cultivates self-confidence and long-lasting happiness.
4. When you're free, it sometimes actually attracts what you want to you, rather than you pushing or forcing something to happen.
