In fact, very few people have the guts to put the F word in the title of their NYT bestselling book (it’s been on the list for 9 months straight).
But that’s one reason Mark Manson has become such a popular writer, both in the blogging and the book publishing world.
He has spent years studying self-help, traveling the world, living in different cultures, and learning from his own life experiences about what actually makes us happy and successful.
And what he has learned runs counter to what a lot of people say is true.
I loved diving into these topics with him because I can tell Mark is a truth-seeker. He’s not afraid to speak up about what he has learned, even if it isn’t the most popular idea.
That’s exactly why his writing has struck a chord with so many people — he tells the truth about why it’s important to feel sad and angry, he acknowledges the negative voices we all have talking in our heads, and he admits that it’s challenging to not judge ourselves.
But Mark also has learned positive, practical methods to navigate these issues without all the sugar-coating that usually goes with them.
We dove into all these topics, as well as what he’s learning about himself as mega-writing success has hit him.
I learned a lot of new perspectives from Mark and believe you will too in Episode 524.
