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. The book has sold over 2 million copies across the globe.

I loved the book because it reinforced my main philosophy: to never care about other people’s opinions/thoughts about me. My close friends and relatives often wonder how I manage to live a carefree life. Therefore, through the book, I felt like Mark Manson just told me, ‘That’s the way, man!’

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

Published

on

Robert Kiyosaki, best known for his book Rich Dad Poor Dad, is a speaker, author, and businessman. He has invested in the retail, mining, publishing, and the real-estate industry, and he has a net worth of over $80 million.

Robert Kiyosaki loves providing enlightening advice to entrepreneurs and he mostly encourages people to build businesses instead of working for someone.  Here are some of his powerful quotes I believe you’ll love if you are planning to be a successful entrepreneur.

  1. “Too many people are programmed in school that you must know all the answers. So they are afraid of looking stupid. The key to success is being stupid and you’ll get smarter.”

 

  1. “I noticed that people really do shape their lives through their thoughts.”

 

 

  1. “An entrepreneur’s first job is to control the inside, not outside.”

 

  1. “Bucky Fuller said you always have to look at the big picture. Too many people look at, ‘well what’s gonna happen to me.’ When you look at the big picture you’re also gonna know that when something bad happens something good’s gonna happen.”

 

 

  1. “Your brain can be your most powerful asset, or it can be your most powerful liability. If you use the right words in your brain, you will become very rich. If you use the wrong words, your brain will make you poor.”

 

  1. ‘Entrepreneurs have one thing in common. They keep going.”

 

 

  1. “At school, they teach that if you make a mistake or if you fail you are a failure, but that’s not real life. A baby learns to walk by standing up and falling down.”

 

  1. “It really doesn’t matter where you start, just start.”

 

 

  1. “When you don’t have this paycheck, you get hungrier, smarter, and it’s a test of your character.”

 

  1. “If you are smart you have money, if you are stupid you don’t have money.”

 

 

  1. If you are afraid of making mistakes, get a job, you’ll do very well there.”

 

  1. “I noticed that my poor dad was poor not because of the amount of money he earned, which was significant, but because of his thoughts and actions.”

 

 

  1. “Most people never see opportunities because they are busy looking for money and security.”

 

  1. “Rich dad believed in dreaming big, trying new things, and making small mistakes.”

 

 

  1. “A plan is a bridge to your dreams.”

 

  1. “Every day with every dollar, you decide to be rich, poor or middle class.”

 

 

  1. “Often, in the real world, it’s not the smart that get ahead, but the bold.”

 

  1. “You can become rich beyond your wildest dreams.”

 

 

  1. “The biggest challenge you have is to challenge your own self-doubt and your laziness. It is your self-doubt and your laziness that define and limit who you are.”

 

  1. “If you’re working hard physically and not getting ahead financially, then you are probably someone’s else’s leverage.”

 

 

  1. “Your future is what you do today, regardless of your dreams.”

 

  1. “If you cannot be trusted with small agreements, people will not help you make your big dreams come true.”

 

 

  1. “If you know how to build businesses and invest money, you can make so much money that your problem will be too much money.”
