Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life Reviews
This was a pretty good book designed to teach how to get out of the particular ruts we put ourselves in by telling ourselves we're not good enough or our problems are too large, etc. Practical for sure, and good to put this on paper and read it sometimes.
I think this was a self-published book, and had a few grammatical and typographical errors that were a nuisance but shouldn't distract from the overall message. Fast read, worth checking out.
Not as "offensive" as it tries to make itself out to be. Some good advice but there's a lot of fluff. A lot of the book could be cut and the points would still make sense.
Some takeaways I appreciated:
- You could change your life overnight if you gave up the notion that other peoples' opinions matter. Be willing to be judged by others and not let it get to you.
- No one can read your mind. Say what's on it. Share your plans and ideas. That thing that's pissing you off might not be on their radar. ...more
A fun short read with easy points to follow which can improve your personal life view (sense of self-worth). This was a perfect example of how simplicity, clarity, and concise writing provide the best form of communications. The author gets to the point: To improve your life, you need to change your thinking, take action and stick with your actions (new habits). The author writes this in a very straightforward fashion.

"Because when you’re trekking through the jungle, you don’t know if you’re three days from civilization or thirty minutes. All you can do is walk. The only way out is forward."
If you're ready to take responsibility for where you are in life, this book could help you get focused. Really spoke to me. If you are sensitive to someone telling you to stop feeling sorry for yourself and take control of your life, don't bother reading this. But if you're ready to be serious and get past your (likely bad) attitude, this book may speak to you too. I found this read quick, easy, entertaining and the kick in the pants I needed. Thanks.
Anyone who follows my reviews (all three of you) know that I have a weak spot for dumb self-help books and I have to read one like every month. This one was a good one. It's short, helpful, and a nice reminder to get your expectations in check. Nothing revelatory here, but it's an easy read and I think he's basically right and the advice is sound.
Should I read into the fact my mom gifted me with this book?
Gary John Bishop embraces his Scottish decent in his no nonsense, get your shit together diatribe in the astutely titled self help book UnF*ck Yourself. The book is broken into seven personal assertions that are labelled and then thoroughly broken down and explained in repetitive detail.
I am willing
I am wired to win
I got this
I embrace uncertainty
I am not my thoughts: I am what I do
I am relentless
I expect nothing and accept ...more
I'm not a huge fan of self help books, simply because I've got a pretty good life going that I'm happy about, but more importantly I don't believe there is a book that will change your life for the better, it's actually entirely up to you.
But I've recently read "Vertical Mind" (random pick as it's pretty much the only book on audible about improving climbing performance) and realized that there are areas to improve and that I do have some problems to solve not only in climbing, but also in my li ...more
