The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck By Mark Manson
This has to be one of my favourite personal development reads. It’s not only brutally honest and refreshing ,but I had so many “aha” moments. Mark makes a good point that as humans we are so obsessed with trying to be happy all the time that we aren’t actually living! And that it’s not possible to be happy 24/7 and that’s ok. He also talks about how as human we only have so many “fucks” we can give, so use them wisely. So basically, only give a fuck about what’s truly important… not what Karen at the office thinks of your outfit. A must read for anyone who gives too many fucks, and keeps trying to chase their tail to find “happiness”. Click here to check out this book.

If you are ready to get rid of the excuses, own who you are and get a pep talk this is the book for you! I loved this book because it helps you see how you tackle your goals in a whole new light and helps you actually plan how to get there!
