My Top 13 Favourite Quotes from Mark Manson’s Book: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*?k

Published

on

Mark Manson’s bestseller, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck, is a wonderful book for people who care so much about things that don’t matter. I loved the book because it reinforced my main philosophy: to never care about other people’s opinions/thoughts about me.

Anyway, while reading the book I noted down quotes which I believed will be important to you.

  1. ‘When you give too many f*?ks – when you care about everyone and everything – you will feel that you’re perpetually entitled to be comfortable and happy at all times, that everything is supposed to be just exactly the way you want it to be. This is sickness, and it will eat you alive. You will see every adversity as an injustice, every challenge as a failure, and every disagreement as a betrayal.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘If you find yourself consistently, giving too many f*?ks about trivial shit that bothers you – your ex-boyfriends’ new Facebook Picture, how quickly the batteries die in the TV remote – chances are you don’t have much going in your life to give a legitimate f*?k about.’- Mark Manson
  1. ‘Everything worthwhile in life is won through surmounting the associated negative experience. Any attempt to escape the negative, to avoid it or quash it or silence it, only backfires. The avoidance of suffering is a form of suffering.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘Maturity is what happens when one only learns to only give a f*?k about what’s truly f*?k-worthy.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘Finding something important and meaningful in your life is perhaps the most productive use of your time and energy. Because if you don’t find that meaningful something, you will focus your attention on meaningless and frivolous causes.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘Once you become comfortable with all the shit that life throws at you (and it will throw a lot of shit, trust me), you become invincible in a sort of low-level spiritual way. After all the only way to overcome pain is to first learn how to bear it.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘If you’re miserable in your current situation, chances are it’s because you feel like some part of it is outside your control – that there’s a problem you have no ability to solve.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘If you’re stuck on a problem, don’t sit there and think about it: just start working on it. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, the simple act of working on it will eventually cause the right ideas to show up in your head.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘It turns out that adversity and failure are actually and even necessary for developing strong-minded and successful adults.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘You can’t be an important and life-changing presence for some people without also being a joke and an embarrassment to others.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘I believe that today we’re facing a psychological epidemic, one in which people no longer realize it’s okay for things to suck sometimes.’ – Mark Manson

  1. ‘We suffer from the simple reason that suffering is biologically useful. It is nature’s preferred agent for inspiring change. We have evolved to always live with a certain degree of dissatisfaction and insecurity, because it’s the mildly dissatisfied and insecure creature that’s going to do the most work to innovate and survive.’ – Mark Manson
  1. ‘You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of f*?ks to give. Very few, in fact. And if you go around giving a f*?k, you will get f*?ked.’ – Mark Manson

    Now that Roy mentioned it, it reminds me of that book, too. It also reminds me of buddhism, with its focus on not getting emotionally attached to things. I think being miserable because of suffering is normal. And it’s a great indicator of things that need to change, or heal.

20 Enlightening Quotes from Seth: the Spiritual Entity that Possessed a Famous American Author

20 Enlightening Quotes from Seth: the Spiritual Entity that Possessed a Famous American Author

In 1963, a spiritual entity possessed Jane Roberts, a poet and author, and revealed enlightening spiritual information through her. Her husband recorded this information in written form hence resulting in the creation of the Seth Material, which is now recommended by famous authors such as Deepak Chopra and Mariam Williamson.

I’ve read a few books from the Seth Material, and I would love to share with you the most enlightening quotes from the books.

  1. ‘Believe, then, that you are a being unlimited by nature, born into flesh to materialize as best as you can the great joy and spontaneity of your future.’
  2. ‘You are a creator translating your expectations into physical form. The world is meant to serve as a reference point. The exterior appearance is a replica of inner desire. You can change your personal world. You do change it without knowing it. You have only to use your ability consciously, to examine the nature of your thoughts and feelings and project those with which you basically agree with.’
  3. ‘Experience is the product of the mind, the spirit, conscious thoughts and feelings, unconscious thoughts and feelings. These together form the reality that you know. You are hardly at the mercy of reality.’
  4. ‘It is perfectly fine to make plans for the future, yet each individual should live day by day, without worrying about the outcome of those plans.’
  5. ‘You are so busily concerned with daily matters that you do not realize that there is a portion of you that knows that its own powers are far superior to those shown by the ordinary self.’
  6. Consciousness is not dependent upon form, as I have said, and yet it always seeks to create form.’
  7. ‘The conscious idea of magic, then, is a mask, or contrived version, of the psyche’s innate clairvoyant, telepathic, and precognitive abilities.’
  8. ‘It would help considerably if you thought of your work more as an adventure, an exciting creative adventure, than of work in your old terms.’
  9. ‘Creativity rides the tides of love. When love is denied its natural expression, creativity suffers.’
  10. ‘To the extent, therefore, that you allow the intuitions and knowledge of the multidimensional self to flow through the conscious self, to that extent not only do you perform your role in the play more effectively, but also you add new energy, insights, and creativity to the entire dimension.’
  11. ‘When the ego becomes too concerned with daily matters, with worry in other words, then the works of the ego become clogged.’
  12. ‘If there is good communication between the inner self and the outer ego, then the ego begins to understand what it is, and also to realize that it has greater capacities.’
  13. ‘As long as you believe your environment to be objective and independent of yourself, then to a large extent, you feel powerless to change it, to see beyond it, or to imagine other alternatives that may be less apparent.’
  14. ‘Mental images, accompanied by strong emotion, are blueprints therefore upon which a corresponding physical object, or condition or event, will in your terms appear. The intensity of a feeling or thought or mental image is, therefore, the important element in determining its subsequent physical materialization.’
  15. ‘The body’s natural healing processes each day rid people of diseases, repair emotional or bodily illnesses – and such instances go largely unrecorded.’
  16. ‘I want it known that thoughts and emotions are formed into physical matter by very definitive methods through laws quite valid, though they may be presently unknown.’
  17. ‘A soul is not something that you have, it is what you are.’
  18. ‘You get what you concentrate upon, and your beliefs are largely responsible for those areas in which you concentrate.’
  19. ‘Any creative work involves you in a cooperative process in which you learn to dip into other streams of consciousness, and come up with a perception that has more dimensions than one that is arising from the one narrow, usual stream of consciousness that you know.
  20. ‘Great creativity is then multidimensional. Its origin is not from one reality, but from many, and it is tinged with the multiplicity of that origin.’

The end. Thanks for reading.

15 Life-Changing John Cena Quotes

15 Life-Changing John Cena Quotes

John Cena is a professional wrestler and actor who once lived in his car and cleaned toilets for a living. He is a humble celebrity and many people love him. Recently, a South African rapper released a song named John Cena, and Cena avoided taking legal action against her because he didn’t want to take her efforts away.

Anyway, besides watching him fight and act, I love listening to his life-changing pieces of advice.

Here are his top pieces of advice about life and success.

  1. ‘I have often said a man’s character is not judged after he celebrates victory but by what he does when his back is against the wall. So no matter how great the setback, how severe the failure, you never give up. You pick yourself up, you brush yourself off, you push forward, you move on, you adapt, you overcome. That is what I believe.’
  2. ‘Surround yourself with wonderful people, be willing to learn, be willing to be humbled, and good stuff will happen.’
  3. ‘Don’t waste time and energy over the uncontrollable.’
  4. ‘To succeed I had to believe every night that I am the best.’
  5. ‘I’ve never been closed-minded to anyone’s opinion because you can learn from everybody.’
  6. ‘Take what you have and make it something great.’
  7. ‘No matter what you do, be yourself, and love what you do.’
  8. ‘Failure has made me who I am today. Failure gives you two choices, you stay down or you get up.’
  9. ‘Always try to do what you love. It’s always possible. It’s just a matter of sacrifice.’
  10. ‘I took risk, after risk, after risk.’
  11. ‘Check for your knob, and if you can find a knob it’s your door.’
  12. ‘Never give up. I have failed tens of thousands of times.’
  13. ‘If you don’t learn from your mistakes, they become regrets.’
  14. ‘The reason I have got to the finish line only a few times through all that failure is because through that failure I got back up.’
  15. ‘The future shows a lot of promise, but I think we should focus on the now.’
