Why should you read it?

If you are worried about too many things in your life, this is definitely a book for you.

I came across Mark Mansons’s blog almost 2 years ago, and I must admit- it helped me a lot to change my approach to how I live my life. Why? It was a wake-up call to realise that I  worry about too many things in my life. There is a certain level of energy each of us has. Make sure that you utilise it wisely and spend on things that are important in your life so you can live an enjoyable and meaningful life.

What is the book about?

It’s a self-help guide based on both academic research and authors personal experience, showing his shadows and struggles with finding happiness, mixed with joyful stories and silly jokes. It gives advice which aims to help you to focus on the most important aspects of your life. Mark Manson, the author and well-known blogger, argues that in reality, it isn’t really practical or helpful to be “always positive”. Most of us struggle in our daily lives by carrying for too many things where care don’t deserve to be given. The author recommends that you have to figure out what really matters in your life and develop the ability to control and manage it while accepting your own limitations. Sounds easy, but in reality, it’s not!
