“Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.”
This is one of the many amazing quotes from Mark Manson is his top-selling book, The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*** (see it here on Amazon)
Here are a few reasons I loved this book by Mark Manson:
Mark does an excellent job of making the reader focus on what really matters in life (aka your values).
What are your values? What is really important to you?
Why do we all get so caught up in trivial things that have little to no meaning or real influence on us?
Once you know what you are living for and what you stand for, it makes it a WHOLE lot easier to never give a f*** about all of the fluff around us (like someone saying something you disagree with on social media for instance).
2. Solve Problems
The more problems you solve, the happier you are.
The more obstacles you overcome, the more fulfilled you are.
The harder the problem and obstacle you solve/overcome, the happier you are.
3. Take Action
Without action, nothing happens.
Mark really hammers home that action is the catalyst for all happiness.
If you don’t take action to solve problems that tie into your values, you might as keep sitting on the couch hoping happiness magically hits you in the face…
The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*** [EPISODE 30]
Awesome book by Mark!
I loved how he tied in the importance of having values, not getting distracted by unimportant issues and social media BS, and then taking action to make changes in your life.
Certainly a must-read book this year.
This subject of happiness and the power of taking action on your values is one of my favorite chapters in the ultimate book on happiness called, “Fishing For Happiness.”
Definitely, pick up a copy for yourself if you haven’t done so already.
In the meantime, what is holding you back from a happier and more fulfilling life?
Let me know in the comments.
