What’s a good book, what’s a bad book? My favourite book could be the one you couldn’t even get yourself to finish! Hence, I think it’s best if you gauge for yourself if you want to read a book like this with the following 5 reasons.
To know what I personally think of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson and how it helped me, take a look at this.
1. You feel like you don’t have a mentor
Or anybody at all to guide you!
Rarely, if you’re lucky, you come across a teacher or a senior who greatly impacts your life by changing your ideas and perspectives about everything and by imparting wisdom and knowledge you know you won’t find easily or never at all if it wasn’t for them. This book is just that.
2. You are at a turning point in life
Whether it is graduating school/college, shifting jobs/countries, making a life changing decision, or having a life crisis (which I think we all are considering the coronavirus pandemic), this book will equip you with a mindset that will prove to be highly beneficial.
3. You have recently failed at something
And are unable to deal with that or a past failure.
Failure is daunting and while we know it is important and forms stepping stones to eventual success, it’s still hard to deal with it and take it in our stride. This book helps with just that.
4. You feel highly demotivated and uninspired
You may come across uncountable inspirational quotes and posts online which you hope may help but in all honesty they never do, or at least they never have any lasting impact. This book, because of it’s fresh and solid content helps in ways you would not imagine a book could.
5. You want to re-define certain words
Like happiness, success and purpose for yourself by yourself and deeply care about personal values.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*CK will tell you why your value system is important. It will tell you how to use that to build your ideas of happiness and success. It will explain why these two concepts are something most humans merely chase but never achieve.
(And not giving many fucks)
