I recently read the book ” The Subtle art of not giving a Fck ” and it is a practical guide to living a more focused and happy life. The book contains lots of examples and lessons considering the today’s generation’s self made problems and entitlements. The book gives a clear idea on what we should be focusing on and frees us of all the fairy tale, glittery thoughts we think about ourselves and compelling us to choose what is important and worth our time and energy.
In this era of multiple inevitable distractions, we need to make our minds focus on the things that matter to us and which ultimately result in prosperity of our mind and soul.
The author tells us the importance of choosing our priorities and avoiding temporary distractions which create unnecessary mess in our lives.
2. What are you willing to struggle for?
Everyone aspires those perfect, shiny famous lives, but how many are actually willing to go through the sacrifice and struggle behind those dreams.
This question compels us to think if we’re really ready to do all the struggle behind achieving something. For what we are willing to suffer.
3. Taking Responsibility
Only we are responsible for all the things happening in our lives. We need to manage our emotions when dealing with a positive or negative event because ultimately we’re the ones affected by it. Whether it is fortunate or unfortunate, we are the ones responsible to react towards that event.
4. Rejection/Saying No
” The art of choosing a value for yourself requires rejecting alternative values”
This lesson implies our choices in setting our goals, values, and emotions. If we want to commit to a single value, career, emotion or decision we need to eliminate the distraction of other value, career, emotion and decision.
Commitment means to decide our values and emotions. Committing to one value, career, relationship gives us the opportunity to focus on the important and align our actions for the benefit of ourselves and the people connected to us.
6. We’re going to die
We are all going to die someday and the one thing that will be left behind is our LEGACY.
What we have contributed to this world will be remembered not out emotions, insecurities, judgments. Keeping this in mind, we need to choose our devotion, we need to start living for the things that matter because one day it will be too late to start over.
Thank you for reading.
