1. “This is the most simple and basic component of life: our struggles determine our successes.” Mark Manson

3. “Carefully choose what to care about.” Mark Manson

4. “We all get dealt cards. Some of us get better cards than others. And while it’s easy to get hung up on our cards, and feel we got screwed over, the real game lies in the choices we make with those cards, the risk we decide to take, and the consequences we choose to live with. People who consistently make the best choices in the situations they’re given are the ones who eventually come out ahead in poker, just as in life. And it’s not necessarily the people with the best cards.” Mark Manson

We have evolved to always live with a certain degree of dissatisfaction and insecurity, because it’s the mildly dissatisfied and insecure creature that’s going to do the most work to innovate and survive.” Mark Manson

7. “Challenge yourself to find the good and beautiful thing inside of everyone. It’s there. It’s your job to find it. Not their job to show you.” Mark Manson

12. “Commitment allows you to focus intently on a few highly important goals and achieve a greater degree of success than you otherwise would.” Mark Manson

13. “The fact is, people who base their self-worth on being right about everything prevent themselves from learning from their mistakes. They lack the ability to take on new perspectives and empathize with others. They close themselves off to new and important information.” Mark Manson

14. “We are responsible for experiences that aren’t our fault all the time. This is part of life.” Mark Manson
