Have you ever felt like your negative emotions are ruining your life? Have anxiety or fear ever held you back? Well, Mark Manson (#1 New York Times Best-Selling Author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck) actually thinks negativity is a GOOD thing and makes a convincing case for why negative emotions are the key to having a positive life.
But let’s rewind for a second…
A few months ago, some of my college buddies and I had just finished an impromptu philosophical discussion about books and life and we were hankering for more conversations like that. “A book club!” we thought. And so we started one with a handful of friends.
Our first meeting was with just four book-readin’ buddies (we now have almost 20 people in our crew!), and we chose a rebellious title as our inaugural book — The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson. We’ve read several other books during the lifetime of this club, and I’ve read many more on my own, but I can tell you without a doubt that this book is my favorite read of 2017 so far.
Mark has a way of using story-telling to explain complex and emotional ideas with ease. He’s also just the right amount of philosopher and badass and shares tons of useful and practical personal development tactics that I know I’ll be reading and re-reading this book for years to come. It was an honor to be able to interview him for this podcast, and we jammed on plenty of my favorite topics from the book.
In this interview, you’ll learn about Mark’s “Do Something” principle, the secret to feeling motivated more often, what your negative emotions are telling you to do, and how to know which relationships and friendships are worth sticking around for… and which ones you should let go of.
This interview is packed with wisdom, actionable advice, and a few well-placed curse words. 😉
