9 Fucking Lessons from The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson

Published

on

Despite its title, Mark Manson’s book offers wonderful teachings that will make you re-examine your values and start focusing on what truly matters. The book makes you realize the stupid and superficial values that have been guiding your life. Besides this, the book teaches the importance of embracing pain, failure, and all negative emotions you might experience.

A few months ago, I shared My top 13 favorite quotes from the book. Today, I will share with you 9 lessons I learned from this amazing book.

  1. Giving too Many Fucks, Fucks Up Your Life

Most of us give too many fucks: we care about some celebrity’s new car, our ex-boyfriend’s cute girl, having the latest footwear, and many more trivial things. Little do we know that giving too many fucks has a detrimental effect on our mental health as it makes us focus on having unrealistic and fake things that we might never get.

  1. Choose the Things to Give a Fuck About

We are wired to care about many things. However, if we want to progress, we must choose to only care about things that add value to our lives. We must stop giving a fuck about useless things such as posting a perfect selfie on Facebook or having the best swag in town.

  1. Life is Fucking Full of Problems

Never expect to live a life of everlasting happiness because problems will never end. For example, if you are poor, you will have money problems, and if you become rich, you will experience money management problems. Problems never end, they just transform. Therefore, instead of wishing you never had problems, wish you had good problems.

  1. You Can Only Be Great by Realizing That You are Fucking Average

All folks who became great realized they are average, and for this reason, they continuously improved themselves. Their obsession with improvement resulted in them becoming exceptional in their fields.

  1. The Three Fucking Layers of Self-Awareness

According to Mark Manson, self-awareness is like an onion with the following three layers that you must peel.

  • Have a simple understanding of your emotions– Know what makes you happy or sad, and what discourages or encourages you.
  • Understand the root causes of your emotions. – Deeply analyze the main causes of your current feelings and emotions.
  • Understand your personal values – Check how you measure success or people’s self-worth.
  1. Let Go Your Fucking Idea of Who the Fuck You Are

You must let go the beliefs regarding your personality because when you don’t care about who you are, you won’t fear to do the things you must do for you to achieve your goals. For instance, you won’t fear taking risks and failing.

  1. You are Fucked If You Wait for Motivation Before You Take Action

You might never take action if you need motivation to take action because motivation occurs as a result of action. Action motivates you to take more action because it breeds progress. Always take action even when you feel uninspired and never wait for something to motivate you before you take action.

  1. Travel is Fucking Fantastic

Travel helps you realize that your cultural values are not the only guidelines on how to live because it exposes you to people who have different values but still live a good life. It makes you re-examine your values, and create good values to which you can live by.

  1. You Will Fucking Die One Day

Death is the only thing we know with certainty.’ – Mark Manson

Although we always avoid thinking about death, we must always remind ourselves that death is around the corner so that we stop chasing stupid things. Being aware that we are heading towards death also makes us appreciate life and ask ourselves how people will benefit from our short presence on this earth.

Book Review – Illuminati: The Secret Society that Hijacked the World by Jim Marr

Book Review - Illuminati: The Secret Society that Hijacked the World by Jim Marr

In his book: Illuminati: The Secret Society that Hijacked the World, Jim Marr discusses several important facts about the Illuminati.

He writes about the mystical groups, such as the Assassins, Gnostics, Knight Templars, and Rosicrucians, from which the Illuminati stole its secret knowledge, and he provides a brief explanation of the groups’ beliefs, their beginning, and their end.

Jim Marr believes the Illuminati possesses ancient weapons and healing technologies, which it hides from the public, and eliminates any individual who tries to expose them.  He also writes about a man who disappeared after trying to expose a powder that would extend our longevity.

Jim Marr believes Adam Weishaupt founded the Illuminati after he gathered all the hidden mystical knowledge of ancient secret societies. Weishaupt then recruited people and promised to provide them with this knowledge if they ascended to the higher ranks of the Illuminati.

Moreover, Jim Marr writes about the banning of the Illuminati in the 18th century, and how the secret society continued its operations under a different name.

Besides, he believes the Illuminati, through the media, has ‘promoted consumerism, hyper-sexuality, alcoholism, drug consumption, and mental illnesses.’ He also thinks the Illuminati introduced 440HZ music, which is responsible for the high levels of narcissism and aggression today.

In addition, Jim Marr discusses how the Illuminati has infiltrated religion, commerce, military forces, judicial systems, and everything that affects the public. He also discusses how the Secret Society appears in Tv shows and films, and he reveals that some people believe the Illuminati is headed by extra-terrestrial beings. Besides this, he writes that the Illuminati might be trying to contact ancient gods through ancient technology.

In general, Jim Marr strives to enlighten us about the origins of the Illuminati, how it works, what it has done, and who its members might be.

I cannot discuss everything Jim Marr writes, and for this reason, you must read the book if you want to understand how the Illuminati works.

I believe this is the best book for individuals interested in the Illuminati because it agrees with my findings and the conclusions of many other secret society researchers.

Lastly, besides knowing more about the Illuminati, reading the book will enlighten you that the atomic bomb and other technologies you think are modern, were used over 400,000 years ago. You’ll also strive to find the TRUTH – after reading the book – because you’ll notice that our current reality was constructed by a Secret Society; The Illuminati.

Seven Amazing Lessons From The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra

In his book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak Chopra provides seven spiritual laws you can use to achieve success. He defines success as ‘the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals.’

Deepak Chopra believes applying the seven laws of success will enable you to manifest your desires because Infinite Intelligence/Nature/God used the same laws to create the physical universe.

Here are Deepak Chopra’s laws of success.

1.The Law of Pure Potentiality

The first law of success is realizing that your true nature is pure potentiality and infinite creativity. You then reap the benefits of this nature by practicing silence, meditation, and non-judgment.

2.The Law of Giving

According to the law of giving, you ‘must give and receive in order to keep wealth and affluence or anything you want in life.’ You receive when you give because giving ensures the circulation of life’s abundance in your life.

3.The Law of Karma/Cause and Effect

The law of Karma demands you to be conscious of the effect of your choices because they make you take action that determines the life you’ll live. Moreover, being conscious of your choices ensures success because you’ll only make choices that make you happy.

4.The Law of Least Effort

This law is based on the fact that nature functions effortlessly. Fish swim effortlessly, birds don’t struggle to fly, and flowers don’t try to bosom. Deepak believes you easily fulfill your desires when you work effortlessly like nature. He claims that you work effortlessly when your duties are motivated by love because love holds nature together.

5.The Law of Intention and Desire

According to this law, your intention powers your desires, and it has infinite organizing power which directs the universe to fulfill your desires. However, intention only works when you don’t violate the other laws of success.

6.The Law of Pure Detachment

Deepak Chopra teaches that you apply this law when you step into the unknown and release your attachment to the known. He teaches that wanting to completely know what might happen in the next moment blocks success because it shuts down infinite possibilities.

7.The Law of Purpose in Life

This law states that we came into the physical world to fulfill a certain purpose. Besides this, it states that we all have talents, and we can be rich by satisfying the folks who need our talents. For instance, a comedian can become wealthy by satisfying people who want to laugh while a writer can become wealthy by writing for book lovers.

Hope you’ll apply the laws in your life. However, you must read the book to understand all the laws fully.
