“I always wanted to write the anti-self-help book“ – Mark Manson.
A few months ago, I realized a survey among the participants of the second edition of the Ultraproductivity method, where I asked what people would recommend interviewing at the podcast. One of those people was Mark Manson, recommended by Catalina Zapata (Thank you). Mark is world-known for the first book‘s overwhelming success: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***, the most read no-fiction book in Amazon in 2017.
“People always think they have been fucked up.”
Mark Manson is also a Blogger since 2009, with more than 15 million visits on the web/blog. He writes about life advice based on science, pragmatic and blunt, rabbits who do not stink as he calls them. Each week, he sends through his Newsletter three ideas that could potentially change your life. He has sold more than 13 million books from the first book, and he has also published three more books: Everything is Fucked, Love Is Not Enough and Models: Attractive Women Through Honesty.
Mark Manson, a virtuous man
“Love is similar to happiness; it can only be healthy if in your life you have something else“ – Mark Manson.
It was delightful and inspiring to talk and interview Mark because you realize that he is an integral, honest, values, vulnerable person with an unstoppable attitude. The meeting was enjoyable; it is one of those interviews where you have a great time because, the other part is also enjoying it, and it is there because you feel like it resonates and is willing to make the occasion count.
“You are not going to the School of Arts if you are going to be a successful artist.”
Mark has gone from being a frustrated musician to a public personality that has appeared in the main international media: NBC, CNN, Fox News, The BBC, Time Magazine, Larry King, Dr Oz, New York Times, New York Post, USA Today, Buzzfeed, Vice, and Vox, among others. He deals with life purpose, personal values, self-discipline, relationships, creating a better life, conversations, overcoming anxiety and blogging.
“Human mind is never satisfied.”
