Introduction: Failures are only ever as detrimental as you make them.
The path towards your ultimate success is always going to be checkered with failures. If there are no failures then there simply aren’t enough attempts—or at least not enough of the right kinds of attempts. Winning isn’t the result of never failing, it’s the result of failing more often than the rest. The key, is in learning how to fail forward.
Failing forward is about seeing failures as opportunities for massive growth rather than events of massive decline.
This principle, of course, is easier said than done. Failures are painful and can be incredibly hard to rebound from. Continue reading

*Enter Mark Manson*
Imagine that somebody puts a gun to your head and tells you that you have to run 26.2 miles in under five hours, or else he’ll kill you and your entire family.
That would suck.
Now imagine that you bought nice shoes and running gear, trained religiously for months, and completed your first marathon with all of your closest family and friends cheering you on at the finish line.

Introduction: No sugar-coating here.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson is a book that cuts right to the chase. In his own words he says, “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.” And while it may sound like a grim and negative perspective on life, his advice is actually quite practical and direct and can help you turn your life around in less time than a lot of the, “sugar-coated” products available on the market today.
When it comes to success, Manson’s stance is that there will ALWAYS be a struggle in some way, shape, or form and that you should drop the notion of having a struggle-free career or living a struggle-free life—it simply won’t happen. Moreover, it would lead to a boring existence! Problems force us to think outside of our comfort zones and challenge us to grow to stronger mental, physical, and spiritual states. The same way our bodies become stronger when challenged with resistance training and conditioning, so too does our mind and spirit become stronger with problem solving and critical thinking. The trick, Manson suggests, is to find the problems and struggles worth challenging yourself over—the ones you actually enjoy sitting with and working to solve.
Three of my favorite quotes from Mark Manson’s book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck that will make you feel better about commitment. Enjoy 🙂
