How To Eliminate Stress By Becoming Unf*ckwithable

Life can be stressful — but if you know how to manage your inner state, external stressors, criticisms, and emotions from the people and environment around you can’t affect your peace of mind.

What Does It Mean To Be “Unf*ckwithable?”


In this video, Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley and author of The Code of the Extraordinary Mind, explains the meaning behind this controversial term, how you can use it to eliminate stress from your life — and how it got him into trouble when writing his New York Times bestselling book.

If you find yourself getting aggravated by actions and circumstances around you-you may just benefit from becoming a little bit more “unf*ckwithable,” too.

Watch the video to hear:

  1. The definition of unf*ckwithable;
  2. How Vishen learned about this trait after a brain study with monks;
  3. The goals that help you become unf*uckwithable;
  4. Three techniques that make you biologically and mentally stronger;
  5. How you’ll learn to thrive, no matter the stress.

How Our Reactions Can Eliminate Stress — Or Reinforce It


While we can’t truly eliminate external stressors, we can manage our reactions.

Not to say that’s easy: it turns out that stress not only puts a voice in your head, it also triggers a cascade of undesirable biochemical reactions. These reactions negatively affect the body’s musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and nervous system.

Basically, stress creates strain.

And your response to this experience of strain is vital. It can either help you build up your resilience, strengthen your will, and restore your peace. Or your reaction can spiral into a cycle of stress that builds up the effects in your body. Over time, these reactions build up and magnify your reaction to stress in the future.

For example, when you feel stress, your body tenses up. When stress is fleeting, all of the muscles tense up at once — but then they all release afterward. But when you experience chronic stress, your body stays tense and guarded. This tension ultimately creates more stress-related disorders and other reactions.

Now that we better understand the difficulties and the disastrous effects of managing long-term stress, it’s time to take a look at strategy.

Strategies for stress

Some strategies are more effectual than others.

For example, it can be tempting to pretend that you’re okay when you’re not… but that will only deepen the rut. Try to acknowledge your own feelings instead of minimizing the challenges you face or the stress you’re under.

Distracting yourself from your problems never really works, either. At first, you might experience shallow and short-lived happiness. But if you never properly deal with the stressor, it will almost certainly return.

Some choose to wallow in the pain or give in to the stress, allowing these experiences to disempower them. But using your stress as an excuse will undercut your progress toward peace and fulfillment.

That’s why it’s so important to learn how to be unf*ckwithable. When we don’t allow external factors to steal our peace and confidence, we become exponentially more likely to achieve our goals.
