Hey Guys ! I am back with a specific book this time . Its called the subtle art of not giving a fuck. This is the book which I am presently reading and it changed my whole life! That is my life s values and lessons. So here I go …
The subtle art of not giving a fuck as the name sounds. Don’t give a f*ck about the people or the world. Let people talk about you behind your back. Just don’t give a F*ck! Thus the name goes, the subtle art of not giving a fuck!
What I especially like about the book is how the author describes everything as 2 situations or 2 conditions. Things that you give a f*ck about and things you don’t give a f*uck about. Things you give a f*ck about are the things which really matter to you whatever people said hurt you and it kept hovering in your head. Thus, you give a f*ck about them. Or the things that you kept running after in life you didn’t get. As compared to the things you get easily like those which you don’t give a f*ck about. In the end, it’s always the things you don’t give a f*ck about that matter and make you wiser and bolder!
I can say this book completely changed the worldviews that I had before. It made me think and think hard about the things that I give a f*uck about and the things that I do n’t. One thing that caught my attention specifically is explained in the 1st chapter called the ‘backwards law’.
As the author says the backward law is called backward for a reason.
“Not giving a fuck works in reverse. If pursuing the positive is negative, then pursuing the negative generates positive. The pain you pursue in the gym results in better all-around health and energy. The failures in business are what lead to a better understanding of what s necessary to be successful. Being open to your insecurities makes you more confident and charismatic around others. The pain of honest confrontation is what generates the trust and respect in your relationships.
Thus everything is life is won through surmounting the associated negative experience.” So, if you try to avoid or quash the negative it will backfire. The denial of failure is the failure. Hiding what is shameful is a form of shame. I mean this chapter completely turned my past worldviews upside down. and I’ve started to become more accepting as a person.
Must say this is a generation-defining self-help guide. I fell in love with Mark Manson after this.
As for my reviews, I would like to give it 5 stars. The subtle art of not giving a f*ck left me spellbound. No doubt it’s the new york times bestseller! Kudos to the author for writing such a unique and interesting book!
