When we give too many f*cks, when we choose to give a f*ck about everything, then we feel as though we are perpetually entitled to feel comfortable and happy at all times, that’s when life f*cks us.

Maturity is what happens when one learns to only give a f*ck about what’s truly f*ck-worthy.

We are defined by what we choose to reject. And if we reject nothing we essentially have no identity at all.

If you think about a young child trying to learn to walk, that child will fall down and hurt itself hundreds of times. But at no point does that child ever stop and think, ‘Oh, I guess walking just isn’t for me

We can be truly successful only at something we’re willing to fail at. If we’re unwilling to fail, then we’re unwilling to succeed.

"I say don’t find yourself. I say never know who you are. Because that’s what keeps you striving and discovering. And it forces you to remain humble in your judgments and accepting of the differences in others.”

Don’t hope for a life without problems. There’s no such thing. Instead, hope for a life full of good problems.

People who become great at something become great because they understand that they’re not already great – they are mediocre, they are average – and that they could be so much better.

Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.”

This, in a nutshell, is what ‘self-improvement’ is really about: prioritising better values, choosing better things to give a f*ck about. Because when you give better f*cks, you get better problems.”
