    “Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning”.

    This one should be one of the first ones, in my opinion.

    Everyone who wants to get out from under “the financial rock” needs to develop 10 streams of income (assets) to do that. A failure is someone who is satisfied with having just nine streams of income.

    I enjoyed reading all of them. Nothing made me change and start looking at life from a different persective than the day I started reading Robert Kiyosaki’s books. School does not teach these things. Reminds me of another of those quotes by this author, though I may not have put the words correctly but it was sth like, ‘school systems have succeeded at mass producing people with inept financial education’. Sad thing is that I was one of them but I working towards changing this by educating myself by reading all relevant material that improves my financial education, creating sales funnels, suppressing my doubts and taking risks as I charge towards financial freedom.

Published

Mark Manson is the New York Times best seller of the book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.” He provides raw and unfiltered advice on how to live your best life. This type of writing style is what’s made Mark’s writing unique since he uses profanity and blunt honesty to illustrate his ideas.

Below are 19 of Mark Manson’s most influential and motivational quotes from his book, “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.”

1. “Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.”

2. “Life is essentially an endless series of problems. The solution to one problem is merely the creation of another.”

3. “This is the most simple and basic component of life: our struggles determine our successes.”

4. “To be happy we need something to solve. Happiness is therefore a form of action;”

5. “Our crisis is no longer material; it’s existential, it’s spiritual. We have so much fucking stuff and so many opportunities that we don’t even know what to give a f*ck about anymore.”

6.Don’t just sit there. Do something. The answers will follow.”

7. “The more something threatens your identity, the more you will avoid it.”

8. “In my life, I have given a f*ck about many people and many things. I have also not given a f*ck about many people and many things. And like the road not taken, it was the f*cks not given that made all the difference.”

9. “The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.”

10. “You cannot be a powerful and life-changing presence to some people without being a joke or an embarrassment to others.”

11. “If you want to change how you see your problems, you have to change what you value and/or how you measure failure/success.”

12. “Don’t hope for a life without problems,” the panda said. “There’s no such thing. Instead, hope for a life full of good problems.”

13. “Being wrong opens us up to the possibility of change. Being wrong brings the opportunity for growth.”

14. “Not giving a f*ck does not mean being indifferent; it means being comfortable with being different.

15. “It turns out that adversity and failure are actually useful and even necessary for developing strong-minded and successful adults.”

16. “If you’re stuck on a problem, don’t sit there and think about it; just start working on it. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, the simple act of working on it will eventually cause the right ideas to show up in your head.”

17. “If you think about a young child trying to learn to walk, that child will fall down and hurt itself hundreds of times. But at no point does that child ever stop and think, “Oh, I guess walking just isn’t for me. I’m not good at it.”

18. “No matter where you go, there’s a five-hundred-pound load of sh*t waiting for you. And that’s perfectly fine. The point isn’t to get away from the sh*t. The point is to find the sh*t you enjoy dealing with.”

19.Self-awareness is like an onion. There are multiple layers to it, and the more you peel them back, the more likely you’re going to start crying at inappropriate time.”

Success Advice

Stop Replying To Everyone.

Published

on

Image Credit: Unsplash

Many of you are running around like mad trying to manage your time. You’re reading productivity hacks, taking cold showers and waking up at 5 am.

You’re doing all of this because you want more time to do what you love.

Let me hit you in the face with one technique that has allowed me to win back time, so I can do what I love.

Stop replying to everyone…

You get emails asking you to do stuff.
You get asked to do an intro.
You get asked to speak at an event for free about your area of expertise.

Here’s the problem:
YOU KEEP RESPONDING TO EVERY REQUEST OF YOUR TIME.


What’s the answer?

The answer is really simple like everything I write. Are you ready?
Stop replying to everyone.

I learned this technique the hard way. When I was looking to interview entrepreneurs in 2014 about their story and share it in the form of a blog post, I didn’t get many replies.

I’d email very successful people who have achieved the impossible and get nothing.

Radio silence.
Donuts.


Why don’t your idols respond to requests for their time?

There’s many reasons.

  1. They have too many requests and could never humanly answer every single one.
  2. They have limited time and can’t fit everybody into their schedule.

The second reason is the most important. Your idols don’t respond because that’s their way of saying no.


No response is the best response.

By responding to every request of your time, you go down the rabbit hole of endless back and forth conversations.

Let me illustrate this point with a short story.

A US startup approached me on LinkedIn and asked me to advise them on their social media strategy. They offered me equity in return for my expertise.

The product was not something that aligned with who I am, and I was heading off to Europe on holidays and had no time to draft a proper reply.

I sent no response to their request.
They messaged me a second time.
I sent no response to their request.

Then, I got sucked into responding. I felt my moral compass telling me to reply and tell them no. On top of that, the startup had a very well known person in the social media industry join them. FOMO kicked in.

I replied and that’s where everything went wrong.

Once I replied to the request I got daily reminders and emails with pitch decks trying to convince me why they were the one startup who could beat Instagram. The claims of how much traction they had got more and more ridiculous.

“Eventually, a simple request of my time turned into a daily debate”

They wouldn’t leave me alone. I began to regret my stupidity for responding in the first place.

If a request of your time doesn’t resonate with you, and you don’t feel like saying “Fuck Yes” when presented with an opportunity, say NO.

Don’t be tempted by a request of your time. 
Say no.


Not replying is what works.

People generally give up after one email or direct message asking for your time. I’ve tested this theory a lot and it has almost always turned out to be true.

As soon as you reply, you become like a lawyer in the High Court trying to defend someone who is accused of murder. Your time is yours. You only get one life.

“You don’t need to justify yourself, your time, or your goals to anybody”

YOU HEAR ME? NOBODY!

The way you win back time and make room for what’s important to you is to fight the temptation to reply to every request that comes your way.

Quit giving away your time like free balloons at a car expo.


You end up making up lies.

The problem with replying to every request of your time is you can end up making up lies to get out of doing something. Or you may end up exaggerating or putting forward excuses that aren’t entirely true.

This causes even more problems for you because if the requester knows people within your network, they may find out you’re not being honest.

Why construct a grand plan that takes more of your time to respond to a request?

It’s easier to say nothing at all.


Silence says it all.

Smart people who ask you for stuff will know that after a week, if you haven’t responded, you’re probably not interested.

Silence is the best response. After all, if someone really wants you to do something they’ll chase you, they’ll follow you up and they may get a mutual connection to intro them to you.

Many pitches and requests are poorly written or incredibly selfish.

Fight back with silence. Don’t reply. Stop replying.


You’re not missing anything.

The temptation to respond can also be caused by the fear that you’re missing out.

Maybe someone is contacting you to fund your idea.
Maybe something you wrote is going to be published in the New York Times.
Maybe the request will lead you to direct a Hollywood Movie.

All of these false ideas are what’s causing you to respond to everybody.You’re worried you could miss the jackpot or your lucky break.

The harsh truth is that these opportunities are earned through hard work.Genuine opportunities that will excite you are clearly articulated and your gut feeling will guide you better than you think.

You’re not going to miss out on winning an Oscar for a movie you made because you didn’t reply to an email”


Not replying isn’t rude.

We feel we must reply to every request of our time. We have a fear that we will be accused of being rude.

This belief is false also. There’s nothing rude about not replying. We all get lots of emails and messages online and we can’t answer them all. People will understand when you don’t reply. If they don’t understand then that’s a problem with them, not you.

Don’t feel you have to reply out of politeness.

    “Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning”.

    This one should be one of the first ones, in my opinion.

    Everyone who wants to get out from under “the financial rock” needs to develop 10 streams of income (assets) to do that. A failure is someone who is satisfied with having just nine streams of income.

    I enjoyed reading all of them. Nothing made me change and start looking at life from a different persective than the day I started reading Robert Kiyosaki’s books. School does not teach these things. Reminds me of another of those quotes by this author, though I may not have put the words correctly but it was sth like, ‘school systems have succeeded at mass producing people with inept financial education’. Sad thing is that I was one of them but I working towards changing this by educating myself by reading all relevant material that improves my financial education, creating sales funnels, suppressing my doubts and taking risks as I charge towards financial freedom.

Mark Manson is the New York Times best seller of the book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.” He provides raw and unfiltered advice on how to live your best life. This type of writing style is what’s made Mark’s writing unique since he uses profanity and blunt honesty to illustrate his ideas.

Below are 19 of Mark Manson’s most influential and motivational quotes from his book, “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.”

1. “Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.”

2. “Life is essentially an endless series of problems. The solution to one problem is merely the creation of another.”

3. “This is the most simple and basic component of life: our struggles determine our successes.”

4. “To be happy we need something to solve. Happiness is therefore a form of action;”

5. “Our crisis is no longer material; it’s existential, it’s spiritual. We have so much fucking stuff and so many opportunities that we don’t even know what to give a f*ck about anymore.”

6.Don’t just sit there. Do something. The answers will follow.”

7. “The more something threatens your identity, the more you will avoid it.”

8. “In my life, I have given a f*ck about many people and many things. I have also not given a f*ck about many people and many things. And like the road not taken, it was the f*cks not given that made all the difference.”

9. “The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.”

10. “You cannot be a powerful and life-changing presence to some people without being a joke or an embarrassment to others.”

11. “If you want to change how you see your problems, you have to change what you value and/or how you measure failure/success.”

13. “Being wrong opens us up to the possibility of change. Being wrong brings the opportunity for growth.”

14. “Not giving a f*ck does not mean being indifferent; it means being comfortable with being different.

15. “It turns out that adversity and failure are actually useful and even necessary for developing strong-minded and successful adults.”

16. “If you’re stuck on a problem, don’t sit there and think about it; just start working on it. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, the simple act of working on it will eventually cause the right ideas to show up in your head.”

17. “If you think about a young child trying to learn to walk, that child will fall down and hurt itself hundreds of times. But at no point does that child ever stop and think, “Oh, I guess walking just isn’t for me. I’m not good at it.”

18. “No matter where you go, there’s a five-hundred-pound load of sh*t waiting for you. And that’s perfectly fine. The point isn’t to get away from the sh*t. The point is to find the sh*t you enjoy dealing with.”

19.Self-awareness is like an onion. There are multiple layers to it, and the more you peel them back, the more likely you’re going to start crying at inappropriate time.”
