Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and into Your Life – By: Gary John Bishop

There was not much in the book I hadn’t read or heard before but there was something nice about knowing you were not the only one to try to be helpful while “skillfully?” employing emotionally charged words that not everyone enjoys. I’d call it a colorful collection of simple truths. Truths nonetheless.

Some quotes from the book:

“Our biggest successes are born out of discomfort, uncertainty, and risk.”

“you must first accept that while there are things that have happened in your life that you had no say in, you are 100 percent responsible for what you do with your life in the aftermath of those events. Always, every time, no excuses.”

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

“If you took the time to be with what I’m saying, you’d realize that what causes most of your worry is trying to predict the future and then refusing to accept things when they don’t or aren’t going to go your way.”
