This book includes 9 chapters. I will share my thought through each chapter of the book.
The first chapter of the book focus on briefly explaining the idea throughout the book. - The not-giving-a-fuck mind. It is mentioned by a lot of interesting points by the author.
Happiness and trouble always go hand in hand in life whether you realize or not. We are always looking forward to joy, positive emotions and often avoiding negative emotions. The interesting thing here is that it is the things we tend to aim for, which are the things that makes us suffer. That is the life cycle. Accept it, face it, treat it as ordinary, and get over it.
Under the influence of the media, being special in society became a dream for many young people but it gradually became a poison to the mind. We gradually demand privileges and complaints and we gradually lack effort.
Think of us as ordinary people who are humble, curious, and ready to overcome challenges.
All of our thoughts and feelings depend on the worldview that we establish for ourselves. So, in order to be interested, you should choose a right worldview. However, we should not be too rigid on a certain worldview, constantly update it with the world around it to become complete.
But... What choices?
It's how you feel about everything that happens around you.
It is important to note that it may not be your fault that everything that happens around you is your fault, but your feelings towards it, your thoughts are all your fault.
It means that when a bad thing happens, no matter what the cause is, you're sad, you're happy, you deny it or overcome it, it's your actions, and therefore it's your fault.
So What do you choose?
The brain is obviously the head organ of the human being.
But it's not perfect either.
Believe me, the brain is also a very biased "organization". It's your duty to always ask yourself questions to check the correctness of this "organization"
This is like the mother idea of every single self-help book. I know 😂.
I will say this again shortly
There will be no success without failure.
Failure will always be and will be part of the process. Take it as a matter of course and deal with it.
Sometimes, the best way to start a thing is just doing it, facing the failure and learning from it.
I'm proud of what I did, but I'm proud of what I decided to not do, as well.
Saying "No" at the right time is one of my weaknesses. I'm still very blurred on the line between what I want to do and what to do. Being so focused on what I want to do makes me confused and focused on nothing. But too focused on what to do, sometimes the question arises "Is this really the right thing to do or not". Trying to perfect my thoughts, choosing when to say "No" is a skill I will need to improve a lot.
We will all die.
That's sad but true.
So why we have to be afraid of one thing that is unavoidable.
Accept it, cherish your life now and live your best
Don't waste it, you only live once
Explore this life and appreciate everything around you
