Analysis of the Book

The art being told by Mark Manson is a necessity of modern time. The unhealthy feelings and their way forward to relief are persuasive. As the title reflects it accounts for the existing society and the unconventional problems. It is said that when people are in a problem-free state, then the mind finds its way to fabricate or invent a new one. Thus attempting to live a life without problems shouldn’t be the aim. Instead, work better and earn quality problems.

It is the feedback loop in the mind that probably irritates an individual. It automatically reaches a negative conclusion. Be alert enough not to fall for it. The most appreciative element of the book is the concept of happiness. Shifting the source of happiness from the result to the procedure will be a game-changer. More precisely happiness shouldn’t be attached to a problem-free life.

Instead, happiness should evolve from solving problems. People have this temptation of treating their problems and sufferings as exceptional. Nobody is special and needs the rational ability to treat oneself as others.

The underlying values for perceiving life should have a basic standard. For example ‘honest expression’. Stop feeling sorry and pity or having a victim card. Manson explains a story of a person who became successful by taking responsibility. He encourages us to be in charge of life and live a responsible role.

The belief system and its better treatment are mentioned in the book. Thoughts are the place of all problems’ existence. If it is not taken with a better filtering analysis then there will be severe consequences. Accepting failure is a hard key but it can only help to get succeed. The art of saying ‘no’ is again hard but mandatory. The thoughts of death can help to find the purpose of life.
