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.”
