A life-changing decision shaped Mark’s future

The 24-year-old bright-eyed man steps into his cubicle at a large, prestigious bank in Boston. He had just graduated Magna cum Laude from the School of Management at Boston University, with a BA in International Business. He was lucky to get a job in finance fresh out of school. “It’s a promising start to a promising career in business or on Wall Street”, he muses looking out his cubicle over to his office colleagues. Some are typing enthusiastically completely caught up in work, while others look like if given a chance, they would rush out the door never to return. Soon enough, he would find himself searching for a good reason to show up at work every day. He couldn’t find any. “This is not what I want to do with the rest of my life”, he tells himself. Six weeks later, he handed in his resignation.

The young man’s name is Mark Manson, and this is the moment that shaped his future.

Intellect is great. Work ethic is great. Ability to adapt is definitely necessary. But you also need the emotional drive to push you to achieve your dreams.

Mark Manson

Author of three #1 New York Times bestselling books

Will (2021), by Will Smith and Mark Manson

“Will” is Mark’s latest book and an instant #1 New York Times bestseller.

He wrote it in collaboration with Hollywood star Will Smith about his life story. This memoir is the product of a profound journey of self-knowledge, a reckoning with all that your will can get you and all that it can leave behind. It’s the story of how one exceptional man mastered his own emotions, written in a way that can help everyone else do the same.

Oprah Winfrey said the book is “The best memoir I’ve ever read”.

For his amazing storytelling, Mark was awarded the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Achievement.

The subtle art of not giving a f*ck (2016)

Mark’s first book, The subtle art of not giving a f*ck is a massive international bestseller. It is “the self-help book for people who hate self-help books“.

What makes it so powerful?

Because it questioned our conventional wisdom on what makes us happy.

As Mark says in the book’s description, “it’s all about self-improvement not through avoiding problems or always being happy, but rather through engaging and improving upon problems and learning to accept the occasional unhappiness.”

Life is not about getting rid of problems, it’s about finding better problems. It’s not about avoiding failure, it’s about getting better at failure. It’s not about knowing everything, but becoming more comfortable in not knowing anything.

Mark Manson

Once the word-of-mouth kicked in, the book took off in a matter of months and was included in the New York Times Bestsellers list at #1 selling over 10 million copies worldwide to date.

The book has been translated into 30 languages and reached #1 in fourteen different countries. At the time of this article, The subtle art of not giving a f*ck is on New York Times’s Top 10 Bestsellers List and it’s been sitting there for 249 weeks.

Resilience, happiness and freedom come from knowing what to care about–and most importantly, what not to care about. This is a masterful, philosophical and practical book that will give readers the wisdom to be able to do just that.

Ryan Holiday, New York Times bestselling author of The Obstacle is the Way and Ego is the Enemy

Everything is f*cked (2020)

Questioning our assumptions on what makes life worth living, Everything is f*cked sold millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries.

He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom—and even of hope itself.

Mark Manson has succeeded in explaining a crazy world to an entire generation by invoking hard science, moral philosophy, and gobs of hilarious wit. This book is guaranteed to make you laugh, question your beliefs, and (hopefully) change your life.

Nir Eyal, bestselling author of Hooked and Indistractable

15 million people read his site every year

Mark Manson is not an overnight success. He wanted to become a writer and worked for his goal for twelve years.

His writing flows effortlessly off the page because it is the result of continuous style crafting, looking to strike a balance between stories, psychological insights and irreverent jokes.

I like to say that I’ve declared a new sub-genre of personal development based on solid science, pragmatic applications, and a bit of old fashioned “go fuck yourself” wisdom. I sometimes think of it as Negative Self-Help—an approach to personal growth that’s not based on what feels good, but rather on what feels bad. Because getting good at feeling bad is what allows us to feel good.

Mark Manson

After a few years of going broke several times, moving in with his mother and working 10-16 hours a day, his online businesses finally took off. He starts earning a full-time steady income while travelling the world as a digital nomad at 25.

Seven years later he had been to 60 countries, from Ukraine to China and India, Germany and Portugal and learned to speak three languages.

During his travelling years, he lived life to the fullest, experiencing emotional highs and lows.

In 2009, he started blogging as a way to promote his business and soon, the blog took off and became very successful.

Happiness is like being cool: the harder you try the less it’s going to happen. So stop trying. Start living.

Mark Manson

His counterintuitive approach to living a good life and his blunt to-the-point writing style make a powerful combination which earned him a large readership.

Over the years, his blog MarkManson.net became one of the largest personal growth websites in the world with more than 15 million monthly readers and 500.000 newsletter subscribers.

20,000 people have taken his online courses at The Subtle Art School

Launched in 2022, The Subtle Art School is the collection of knowledge drawn by Mark from nearly 15 years of experience helping people lead better lives. The school helps attendants to focus on exploring what makes a fulfilling and meaningful life.
