UnFu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life by Gary John Bishop is a great reading selection for this long holiday weekend and the perfect break from the overeating, overindulging, and over-the-whole-family stress that comes with it.
The first thing to note about this book is that it’s not going to sugar coat your role to play in your own change, but instead get you to look straight on into those self-imposed fears holding you back and disengage from them. It’s not going to baby you either. You won’t find any “boo-hoo” sentiments that allow for self pity, but you will find some straight honest truth that will allow you the opportunity to give yourself the permission you need to deal with “it” and live a great life.
You have the life you’re willing to put up with. ~Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life
It’s not too long a book and it will give you some quality hours of self-introspection. They will be hours well spent. I listened to the Audible version of the book myself, which offers the added bonus of listening to it read by Gary Bishop himself (and his fabulously thick Scotish accent). He does not disappoint. The emotion and feeling of his words will keep you motivated and focused even after you have finished the book.
Even so, I’ve no doubt you will want to go over the book again and again. I know I plan to.
Main points of the book:
- I Am Willing
- I Am Wired to Win
- I Got This
- I Embrace Uncertainty
- I Am Not My Thoughts; I Am What I Do
