Fresh, funny, and fearless, The Middle Finger Project is a point-by-point primer on how to get unstuck, slay imposter syndrome, trust in your own worth and ability, and become a strong, capable, wonderful, weird, brilliant, ballsy, unfuckwithable YOU.

"Don't worry, this isn't a book about God, nor is it a book about Ryan Gosling (second in command). But it is a book about authority and becoming your own." --Ash Ambirge

After a string of dead-end jobs and a death in the family, Ash Ambirge was down to her last $26 and sleeping in a Kmart parking lot when she faced the truth: No one was coming to her rescue. It was up to her to appoint herself. That night led to what eventually became a six-figure freelance career as a sought-after marketing and copywriting consultant, all while sipping coffee from her front porch in Costa Rica.

She then launched The Middle Finger Project, a blog and online course hub, which has provided tens of thousands of young "women who disobey" with the tools and mindset to give everyone else's expectations the finger and get on your own path to happiness, wealth, independence, and adventure.

In her first book, Ash draws on her unconventional personal story to offer a fun, bracing, and occasionally potty-mouthed manifesto for the transformative power of radical self-reliance. Employing the signature wit and wordsmithing she's used to build an avid following, she offers paradigm-shifting advice along the lines of:

• The best feeling in the world is knowing who you are and what you're capable of doing.
• Life circumstances are not life sentences. If a Scranton girl who grew up in a trailer park can make it, so can you.
• What you believe about yourself will either murder your chances or save your life. So why not believe something good?
• You don't need a high-ranking job title to be authorized to contribute. You just need to contribute.
• Be your own authority. Authority only works as long as you trust that someone smarter than you is making the rules.
• The way you become a force is by being the most radically real version of yourself that you can be.
• You only have 12 fucks a day to give, so use them wisely.

In conclusion: if a book to become rich, wishful thinker, resourceful exists... it's this one.

 

It starts out as a simple idea by someone liberated from conventional thinking and the beaten path. With perseverance and dedication, it gains momentum and rapidly becomes a viable concept. As it evolves, it grows into an adventure and becomes the mission. The entrepreneur in charge is now poised to turn the original idea into a phenomenal commercial achievement. And this is where the epic story of success begins.

As is demonstrated in this book, the exceptional entrepreneur need not have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Or to have been a graduate from an Ivy League school. Or to have been equippped with an outsize cerebrum. Far simpler and primal qualities will aid him in his pursuit and attaining a position in the pantheon of the super-successful. To succeed on the treacherous path of business, the model entrepreneur embarks on a journey of self-discovery and never stops. He also composes and perfects a strategy that is essential to accomplishing his mission.

Based on firsthand knowledge and practical experience, in this book, we follow the model entrepreneur from his youth all the way to his twilight years. Along the way, we witness a remarkable journey as we watch the making of an exceptional individual and an extraordinary accomplishment. We observe that, while still in his twenties, he impresses the onlookers with his prolific ideas and practical solutions. In his thirties, he dazzles his investors and benefactors with his strategic genius and business savvy. He reaches his forties only to astound his rivals and admirers alike by devising and executing brilliant expansionary plans and showcasing organizational and managerial expertise. He reaches his fifties and demonstrates exceptional leadership qualities, in addition to an exemplary vision reborn and a strategy refined. He is still breaking molds, but now he also has become an icon. We are still with him as he moves into the next phases of his illustrious life, passes the torch, and shares the wealth and power he has accumulated.

This book is a chronicle of the model entrepreneur at his best. It is also an inspiration to those who want to follow in his footsteps and become the next business titan.
For those who believe there is more...

More. Isn't that what we all want? More money, more time, more energy. Common sense tells us that to get more of any of these things we need to invest what we have now for a return in the future, yet we continue to pour our resources down the drain day after day, year after year, in a blaze of self-gratifying consumption. 

The self-investment mentality is about realising the potential for self-improvement in the most mundane and seemingly insignificant of life's occurrences, actions and events, like eating a particular food, meeting a new person, buying a new pair of jeans or reading a book.  It is the realisation that all these things are deeply but subtly linked into a virtuous circle of personal growth which, if harnessed correctly, can eventually lead to increased resources of time, energy and money.  It is not always about changing behaviour; more often it is concerned with changing mindset to allow growth and resources to flow freely.

More energy, more time, more money...

The principles of self-investment are about treating expenditure of your resources (including, but not limited to, money) in a different way, particularly in relation to investment of those same resources. The philosophy that I'm going to describe is about achieving your own goals and objectives, happiness and fulfilment even, through a mentality of self-investment. That means dedicating significant, if not the overwhelming majority, of your resources to your growth as an individual. Of course, your own programme of self-investments is going to be totally individual - I'm not going to encourage you to spend time, money or effort on any one thing in particular. What I am going to try to convince you to do is to deeply reconsider what you class as an investment and what you class as consumption, or perhaps even waste, in light of a new understanding of how different expenditures can impact your life in very subtle, but profound ways.

Part 1:  Redefining Investment and Consumption

First, we'll throw out old, preconceived ideas of what constitutes 'frivolous' consumption as opposed to 'sensible' self-investment, always and only with reference to you, the individual. We'll learn to recategorise consumption and investment as they truly manifest themselves. More importantly, we'll learn that almost anything can be a self-investment given the right mentality and life situation. It all depends on you.

Part 2:  The Enabling Resources

Next, well take a detailed look at the specific ways in which self-investment gets us one step closer to our goals by increasing our arsenal of potent tools and personal traits, like knowledge, health, motivation, self-esteem, contacts and belief. These are the intermediate resources that eventually lead back to time, life-energy and money.

Part 3:  The Infrastructure of Self-Investment

Finally, we'll seek to understand the silent, almost invisible mechanisms by which personal growth and success emerge once you accept the power of self-investment. This means a change in mindset. We'll also examine the more practical elements of living the self-investment philosophy and how to adapt your life-setup..

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.
