If every therapist and psychotherapist on the planet could repeat this to their clients, like a mantra, again and again, there would be fewer therapists and psychotherapists. Because it works. Very quickly. Realising that what you're worrying about and stressing over doesn't really matter so much in the grand scheme of things is the door to freedom and healing. And the little profanity 'F**k It' is the key to that door. Ask anyone who's come close to death, or lost someone close to them, or discovered they have a serious disease and they'll say the same thing: that the little things don't matter, F**k It... enjoy life in every moment for what it is, not what you want it to be... worry less, live more... remember what's important and forget the rest. John and Gaia have taught F**k It Retreats in Italy and around the world since 2005. They have taught thousands of people how to say F**k It: how to ease up, let go, and feel the natural flow in their lives. F**k It Therapy makes available for the first time the process they teach during their week-long retreats. With their six-part process, you are guided through how to deeply relax and let go, then how to carry this out into your life. You find out about the F**k It State and how to access it, you learn the principles of F**k It Training and then discover what F**k It Living really is, and how you can live every moment in a free, relaxed and F**k It way.

Saying F**k It is like massage for the mind - relaxing you, releasing tension, giving up on things that aren't working. Just starting to say F**k It can transform your life. Saying F**k It feels good - to stop struggling and finally do what you fancy; to ignore what everyone's telling you and go your own way. John C. Parkin argues that saying F**k It is a spiritual act: That it is the perfect western expression of the eastern ideas of letting go, giving up and finding real freedom by realising that things don't matter so much (if at all).This is the Fuck It way.

A recent Gallup poll in the US found that 70% of those in work didn't enjoy their job. In his latest book, John C. Parkin brings the power of saying 'F**k It' to the subject of doing what we love. In this highly entertaining and motivational book, John sets out to prove that when we do what we love, we're actually more likely to be happier, healthier, wealthier and more successful. He addresses the significant blocks that people experience when they consider doing what they love, including: 'Doing what you love is for time-off, not work', 'Doing what I love would be selfish', 'I just don't know what I love' and 'I could never make a living from doing what I love'. Through no-nonsense ideas, fascinating facts and motivating calls to action, John brings us from pessimism to inspiration, so that our trail of thought becomes powered by 'F**k it, I can't waste any more of my life', 'F**k it, I will find a way to make this work', 'F**k it, I will do what I love'. F**k It: Do What You Love is not just a book: it's a call to action to get every single person to spend their precious time on this planet doing what they love.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

Publisher: HarperCollins

Category: Self-Help

Page: 224

View: 8885

#1 New York Times Bestseller Over 1 million copies sold In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

Is there a gap between how you'd like things to be and how they are?Most likely there is, and it hurts. It may be a small gap or a freaking enormous ravine, but that gap is, in fact, probably the primary cause of pain and unhappiness for most people. Whatever it is that is stressing you out right now or causing you pain is right there in that gap, and stopping your life from being how you would like it to be.What if you said 'F**k It' to the idea of how your life should be and found peace with your life just as it is? That's going to shake things up and take the edge o your pain and discomfort way more than any pill could.John C. Parkin, the maestro of saying 'F**k It', realized as he worked with people on his retreats that we can close that gap not by striving to be dfferent, changing the world or even learning how to peaceful - but by saying 'F**k It' and making our peace with life, just as it is.Being at peace with life doesn't necessarily mean being peaceful, and it certainly isn't being passive; it means embracing life in all its colours.This is a radical message that can create radical shifts in your perception of life, just as it is.

Spiritual DNA

The Most Powerful Knowledge about the Potential of the Human Soul and Spirituality ever described by Science, Philosophy, Ancient Cultures and the Law of Attraction

Since ancient times and for thousands of years, from Mesopotamia, Babylon, Egypt and China to Europe, much was the knowledge found and developed to promote a better lifestyle and health. But, for some reason, we have abandoned this path and entered another, of emotional turmoil, physical pain and diseases. Building itself from the premise that, regarding the meaning of life and purpose of each individual on Earth, spirituality represents the beginning and end of each life-cycle, this book combines the most important words of wisdom from different sources and historical periods, not leaving any important perspective aside. Here, religion and science, among other studies and ancient traditions with thousands of years, are interrelated in an obvious, efficient and practical approach. Beyond the philosophies of Taoism, Hinduism, Catholicism and Buddhism, as well as the theories of the Law of Attraction and Quantum Physics, it's shown here how each one of these studies is incomplete without an assimilating acknowledgment of their relation, while allowing an unveiling of the parameters of our Spiritual DNA and experiences on Earth. This Spiritual DNA, just like our Biological DNA, is unique and personal, but included in a wider spectrum of needs and reasons, justifying its existence as an imprint of our spiritual journey throughout many lives. It is the key of life and death, the key to paradise and also to the wisdom of God. While avoiding an esoteric or mystical description, as many other books about this topic tend to portray, this knowledge includes very specific and pragmatic methods that can easily be verified and experienced by anyone. It's all about the uniqueness of this immortal truth. The truth about our Spiritual DNA isn't bound by any religious believe in particular, scientific recognition or social acceptance, because it is supreme to all of them. Every single event in human history and all manifestations of human intellect and creativity, have been using and demonstrating it. And, the current degenerative lifestyle, with all its violence, insanity and diseases, is a consequence of our detachment from this source of life. The Spiritual DNA is responsible for the multiplication of our Biological DNA in more than two strings, our enlightenment and our wisdom. Studying it, is vital for the whole future of the human race and our freedom as spiritual beings. Throughout history, many were those taking advantage of this knowledge to enslave mankind, promote themselves, create religions with millions of followers, or secret societies of very powerful individuals. But, everything changes now, with this book. This holy manual can change the world; may it start with you!

The only self-help book you'll ever need, from a psychiatrist and his comedy writer daughter, who will help you put aside your unrealistic wishes, stop trying to change things you can't change, and do the best with what you can control—the first steps to managing all of life's impossible problems. Need to stop screwing up? Feel like you're under a loser's curse? Work with an ass? Want to clear your name or get justice, rescue an addicted person, get closure after childhood abuse, get a lover to commit, not ruin your kid? Although other self-help books claim to reveal the path to happiness, F*ck Feelings warns that convincing yourself that there is such a path will actually lead you to feel like a true failure. What the Bennetts can promise you is that you can manage any situation life throws at you if you can keep your sense of humor, bend your wishes to fit reality, restrain your feelings, manage bad behavior, and do what you think is right. Life is hard. It's not fair. Our feelings cloud our rationality, and we become tangled in our efforts to achieve the impossible or change the unchangeable. In this groundbreaking, entirely sensible, and funny book, the Bennetts open the shrinks' secret solution manual and show you how to find a new kind of freedom by working toward realistic goals and doing the best with what you can control. They address the most common problems Dr. Bennett's patients bring to his private practice—problems with family, love, work, self-esteem, garden variety assholes, and more—and give you a script for going forward. With no-bullshit advice from a Harvard-educated shrink freed of all jargon and patronization by his smart-ass, comedy writer daughter,F*ck Feelings is the cut-to-the-chase therapy session you've been looking for.

Discover the difference between feelings and emotions, the disparity between truths and facts, and the countless benefits of mindful living. When his pursuit of happiness in Corporate America feels counterproductive, Timber Hawkeye escapes the flourescent-lit hell of his cubicle in Seattle and sets out to fully embrace the stress-free lifestyle of Hawaii. Intrigued and curious about what people believe (and why they believe what they do), he questions everything he ever thought was true and discovers the beauty of letting go. If you consider yourself spiritual but not religious, then you're going to love this inspirational book. And if you want to lead a simple and uncomplicated life with happiness at your fingertips, then you'll want to read this page-turner more than once! "It's not that I'm against religion, I simply don't have one (nor do I believe that we need it to be ethical). My faith is doctrine-free, with a definition of God that doesn't conjure a white man in the sky who dispenses blessings for good behavior and harsh judgments to condemn the bad. That's because I don't believe God does that; religion does. You see, faith is a spiritual practice of continually letting go of certainty, of ego, and of the underlying need to know, while religion is a ceremonial tradition of hanging on, clinging to concrete dogmas, stubborn rigidity, and ageless rituals."

Stupidity. What is it? Is it just something we see our neighbors and members of the opposite political party do? Or is it something more? Why does it seem to be so universal? Are there fundamentals of stupidity that can be recognized? These are the questions discussed in this book. It presents six fundamentals of stupidity that lead to the stupid choices that we see all around us. Included among these are the belief that there are no moral values, that God does not exist, and that it is acceptable to become addicted and to treat others badly and be proud. In the end we see that the only sure way to avoid the fundamentals of stupidity is through the saving power of Jesus Christ.

You know those subtle tricks your coworkers are all guilty of? The constant nodding, pretend concentration, useless rhetorical questions? These tricks make them seem like they know what they’re doing when in fact they have no clue. This behavior is so ingrained, so subtle, and so often mistaken for true intelligence that identifying it, calling it out, or compiling it into an exhaustive digest has never been attempted. Until now. Complete with illustrated tips, examples, and scenarios, 100 Tricks gives you actionable ways to use words like “actionable,” in order to sound smart. Every type of meeting is covered, from general meetings where you stopped paying attention almost immediately, to one-on-one meetings you zoned out on, to impromptu meetings you were painfully subjected to at the last minute. It’s all here. Open this book to any page and find an easy-to-digest trick with an even easier-to-digest illustration, guiding you on: how to nail the big meeting by pacing and nodding most effective ways to listen to your coworkers while still completely ignoring them the key to making your presentations “interactive.” If you hadn’t noticed these behaviors before, you will see them now—from your colleagues, your managers, and soon yourself. Each trick is a mirror to the reality of what happens in meetings, told in the form of hilariously bad advice—advice that you might just want to take. But probably not. But maybe.
