In a self-development book representing this generation, a superstar blogger shows us that the key to becoming a stronger, happier person is to do all the challenges better and stop forcing yourself to be "positive" at all times.
Over the past few years, Mark Manson—through his hugely popular blog—has helped correct our delusional expectations, both about ourselves and the world. He now pours out the fruits of his cool thoughts in this great book.
Manson throws out the argument that human beings are imperfect and finite. Here's what he wrote, "not everyone can be amazing—there are winners and losers in society, and some of them are unfair and not the result of your fault." Manson invites us to understand the limits of the self and accept them—for him, this is the most real source of strength.
Just when we are able to get into fear, failure, and uncertainty—just as we stop fleeing and dodging, and begin to face painful realities—that's when we can begin to find the courage and confidence we've been looking for with all our might.
"In this life, we only have a limited amount of care. Hence, you must be prudent in determining your concerns." Manson creates moments of serious and profound conversation, wrapped in entertaining and "contemporary" stories, and rocky humor. This book is a refreshing slap in the face for all of us, so that we can start living a more fulfilling life, and as it is.
