Finding Hope and Happiness in a Pessimistic World
This week on the podcast, I chat with best-selling author, blogger, and internet entrepreneur Mark Manson.
Manson is the author of the New York Times’ best-seller, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. He’s described it as “a self-help book for people who hate self-help.” The book has sold over 8 million copies and has been translated into 25 languages.
Today we discuss his latest book, Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope. Manson shares his tips for finding happiness and optimism in an unstable, pessimistic world.
Questions I ask Mark Manson:
- With all of the issues in the world, has cursing become trifling?
- You say that the opposite of happiness is hopelessness. How do we wrestle with that?
- What are the benefits to suffering?
What you’ll learn if you give a listen:
- Why we have such a difficult time acting on all of the things that we want for our lives.
- What mental habits we have that are having a negative effect on our psyches.
- Why a little bit of boredom is a good thing.
