Tony Burroughs was a young man living in Hawaii, when an older philosopher sage took him under his wing and became his mentor at an exotic fruit farm on the big island. Over a period of ten years, Tony learned how to farm as well as "The Information," a series of oral lessons, comprising a body of deep teachings about the very meaning of life, the history of mankind, and how to not just exist but to evolve and live a meaningful life filled with love, peace and abundance. A core teaching was in regard to intention-setting and Tony and two friends started a weekly circle to try it out. This first humble circle of three people had dramatic and life-changing effects that have resulted in Tony Burrough's life-long mission to guide others in the art of manifesting the best in themselves, their lives, and for the highest good of all. The tenet of Get What You Want is simple, powerful and profound: "that which you are reaching toward is also reaching out toward you." And, for the first time, Tony has gathered manhy of the key teachings of "The Information" into one book. Get What You Want shows how to set your intention to have that which you desire come to you as easily and effortlessly as possible.

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.

The Code boldly presents readers with a true, workable solution for the challenges facing our world today. Based on a new Code of Conduct that anyone can relate to, it is full of real life stories uniquely designed first, to help readers become self-empowered and more proficient at manifesting so that they are no longer at the mercy of people and forces outside themselves, and second, to provide a simple tried-and-true format for coming together in community to create peace, freedom, and the high quality living environment that everyone longs for and deserves. Tony Burroughs was living and farming in Hawaii when a mentor came to him and, over the course of fifteen years, taught him lessons he simply referred to as "The Information". Burroughs and two others formed a spiritual circle to practice the lessons provided by the mentor and distilled them into a "personal honor code" available to all people wishing to prepare for a time of great change.

The time is now at hand and Burroughs, along with thousands of others who have formed "Intenders Circles" throughout the world, is sharing a simple and powerful message: that which you are reaching toward is also reaching out toward you.

The practice is, literally, as easy as one, two, three:
say your intentions out loud dailygo to an Intenders Circlestate that, in order for your intentions to manifest, they must serve the Highest and Best Good of the Universe, yourself, and everyone concerned

Since there are no limits on what you can think about, there are no limits on what you can intend.
