A Bumpy Ride: Chasing a Dream

Free sample

Ralph, the boy with a dream, is not aware that his determination will be tested to its limits. The early thrills do not give him a clue of what's in store. Just when he thinks he's got it all under control he nearly hits rock bottom. He is about to pack his bags when experienced elders put sense into him, and he begins to see that there might be light at the end of the tunnel. Only later, some years into his adult life, he seems to have sussed out that it's not all hunky-dory and that possibly it might be a case of `the enemy within'. It still hasn't sunk into him that it's not about fair play but about a different sort of a game. Are there no rules to play by, or can some always play foul? Ralph unravels this mind-blowing tale of uncertainties and of life at the cross-roads in absorbing descriptions. `The story is a gripping tale of human endeavour and survival,' says an experienced Indian psychologist. `The situations described,' says an American journalist, `offer guideposts to Managers floundering at the deep end of decision-making.' `It's a double-decker inspirational package for training,' says a British educationist.

There is clear evidence of discontent and disconnection in the life of many individuals, resulting to lack and limitations. The population of the poor is increasing in the midst of plenty. The hardworking people have little or nothing to show for their effort. The rich also cry profusely for one need or another. Those who claim to be men of God have no general answer to the immediate needs of their congregation; all these are proofs of an urgent need for a more pragmatic approach to solving our numerous problems. We urgently require knowing what links us to solutions and what connects us to the main domain of power. We are not totally impervious to the facts, but we need to get used to it. For instance, we know the air we breathe, but not all of us know the contents of this vitality of life. We know the mind, as in man, but many are ignorant of it as the powerhouse creative theater and the link to the spiritual mass where the creations and the Creator meet. We know the world, but many are yet to know that we are the world; we are the children of the most high God, so we should start giving what we want. If you need love, give it first. If you need wealth, give service. Whatsoever you need, be prepared to pay the price, and link it up with what you have. The world is a masterpiece of abundance. There is enough wealth to go round in the universe. Each and every one can be what he or she desires to be. All we need to know is how to link our inheritance, how to connect with our aspirations, and how to attract our yearnings. The eighty-two topics in this book will assist you to link up with yourself, connect with your God, and be able to attract solutions and the best things of life. Read passionately, keep thinking, and keep linking.

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.
