 ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Negative self-talk can not only put us in a bad mood, it can leave us feeling helpless. It can make small problems seem bigger – and even create problems where none existed before. Here’s the breaking news, your self-talk is fucking you over and in ways you can’t even begin to imagine.''
 ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''The more you tell yourself how hard something is, the harder it will actually seem.''
 ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote


''If you’re sometimes talking about how ‘unfair’ life is, you’ll start to act according to that view, perceiving slights where none exist or, as studies have shown, putting less effort into your work because you’ve already determined it won’t accomplish anything. The unfair view will quickly become your reality.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''It’s entirely within our power to determine how we think about and talk about our problems. They can be a nuisance or a stepping stone. They can hold us down or lift us up.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''People spend their lives waiting for the cavalry, all the while never realizing they are the cavalry. Your life is waiting on you to finally show up.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''We can determine our emotions by steering our thoughts. We can shape those thoughts by being conscious of and diligent about our words and the kind of language we engage in. A lot of this will come down to your basic tolerance of your current mindset and your willingness to change it.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''No matter how difficult, challenging, or pressing life’s circumstances can be, how you fundamentally relate to and engage with those circumstances will have the biggest say in how they turn out. Again, the answer is inside you rather than outside you.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''How we talk, think about, and therefore perceive our surroundings is the very foundation for our reality. Create the reality you want to live in by beginning the process of having the kind of conversations, (with yourself and others), that actually shape that reality. A simple way that I re-frame my own everyday ‘problems’ is by relating to them as opportunities. They instantly become items in my life that I use to educate and expand myself. I become curious and engaged with them rather than my usual default annoyed and frustrated self!''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''The physiological and psychological impact of using in-the-moment, assertive language is not only powerful, it has a very real in-the-moment effect. There’s a massive difference between, ‘I am relentless’ and, ‘I will be relentless’. One of those statements intervenes in this moment of your life, the other lives more like a description of what’s to come rather than what’s here. All of this will require you to try out assertive speaking in your daily life and catch yourself when you’re using the more general narrative kind of speaking.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''There is no greater knowledge than the knowledge you have verified for yourself, in your own experience.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life

  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

  
''If you’re not willing to take the actions to change your situation – in other words, if you’re willing to put up with your situation – then whether you like it or not, that is the life you have chosen.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote


''The true measure of who you are won’t be found in your circumstances but rather the way in which you respond to them.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''You must first accept that while there are things have happened in your life that you had no say in, you are 100% responsible for what you do with your life in the aftermath of those events.
Always, every time, no excuses.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''willingness is missing in your life. Not some wispy,sheepish willingness but rather a bold willingness, the kind of willing state where you are ready for what’s next and ready to act on it. Willingness to change, willingness to let go, willingness to accept. Real, magical, inspired willingness.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''Either you control your destiny, or your destiny will control you. Life won’t stop for your pauses and procrastinations. It won’t stop for your confusion or fear. It will continue right along without you. Whether you play an active part or not, the show will go on.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life

  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''We often view ourselves as procrastinators or lazy or unmotivated. When in reality, we’re simply unwilling. We put things off or avoid them completely because we tell ourselves we just don’t want to do it or that we can’t do it.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


“Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great”.
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''It does not matter what you’re facing in life, which obstacle you’re trying to overcome – if you are willing to generate that state of willingness, that’s your doorway to making the effort, taking the steps, dealing with the setbacks, and ultimately creating the progress and change in your life that you’re seeking.That’s why such a simple statement – ‘I am willing’ – is so profound. You become enlivened and empowered by its promise, open to its allure.
I ask again: are you willing?''

Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote


''Are you willing to find a new job? Yes. ‘I am willing.’ Are you willing to stay in a job you hate? No. ‘I am unwilling’.Both assertions can be just as effective. It’s up to you to determine which one fits your persona and situation. Which one 'does it' for you?''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''If you really want those things [nice car, clothes, body etc], then go get them! Begin today, lay out your strategy, deal with your reality and, most importantly, take the actions required and take them often! But if you’re not willing to work an extra 10 or 20 hours a week just to drive to work in a BMW instead of a Honda, give up the complete waste of precious headspace to yearn for it. Stop pretending to yourself. Deal with your unwillingness to take on the kind of actions accomplishing those things would require and accept that you have been bullshitting yourself. You’ll have a lot more capacity for loving the life you actually do have and create some room to begin striving for the things you actually want in life.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Most of the time, the task we’re actually facing is a lot simpler than we think it is. The problem is, we usually don’t take the time to really look at it. Some of the things we face certainly can be challenging, but at the same time what’s on the other side of those challenges is a life of our dreams.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''When you start to view the world through the lens of what you’re willing and unwilling to pursue, rather than what it seems you want and don’t want, things start to become a lot clearer.Instead of wasting time worrying about the things other people have, you’ll start focusing on what’s really important to you and your life. You’ll realize that once you replace envy, lust, and desire with a willingness to change your life for the better, things really start to take shape.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''You’ll realize that when you’re willing to do what it takes, nothing else matters.You won’t put off the things you’re truly willing to do. You won’t neglect the responsibilities you took on because you will feel the strong sense of willingness to do them.Willingness. It’s the lifeblood of the new, the infinite well of possibility and potential, a state where new futures arise and a whole new you can begin.''
 ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Ask yourself ‘am I willing?’ over and over until you can hear it, first thing in the morning, last thing at night, while you’re driving, while in the shower, ‘Am I willing?’ Ask, ask, ask until a resounding YES echoes through your consciousness. I AM WILLING! I ask you again, ‘Are you willing?’. ''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Our thoughts are so powerful that they are constantly pushing you toward your goals, even when you don’t realize what those goals actually are!
Your brain is wired to win.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''The path you follow through life is the one dictated by your deepest, most inconspicuous thoughts. Your brain is constantly pushing you along that path,whether it’s the one you would consciously choose to take or not.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Can’t seem to increase your income? Can’t seem to lose weight? Have you considered the subconscious, concealed beliefs about your income and your weight that may be driving your action (or lack of it)? You automatically relate to yourself as belonging to a certain economic class, with a certain level of fitness, and your actions serve to keep you in place, right where you’re most familiar to yourself.''

''Believe it or not, it’s not necessarily any harder to make $60k than it is $30k.You may think it is, but that’s not an absolute.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''We hold a certain belief about ourselves or life that we prove right time and time again through our everyday actions. Those beliefs uncannily turn out to be deadly accurate in our reality. Spinning your wheels? What are you out to prove there?
‘I’m not worthy of love’, ‘I’m not smart’, ‘I’m a failure’, I’m not as capable as I used to be’. With these kinds of repeats stuck in your subconscious, is it any wonder that you are masterful in consistently proving them right? To succeed in another, more positive way, you’d have to prove those firmly held beliefs WRONG! For your persona, that’s a ground-shaking idea that is almost too much to bear. It would in fact unsettle the very foundations of who you have become! ''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''If you’re struggling to get work done, perhaps you believe that you’re incapable or lazy. You prove that idea every single time you pause or procrastinate. You’re proving to yourself and others that you really are that person.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''The Stoic philosopher Seneca once said,
‘It is the power of the mind to be unconquerable’.
Right now, your mind is unconquerable when it comes to proving that you’re not worthy of love, that you’re lazy, or that you’ll always be out of shape or never have any money.But if we change our thinking a little, we can use our mind’s unconquerable nature to act on all the positive goals and dreams we hold for ourselves. We are wired to win – we just have to point ourselves in the right direction so we can win at something we consciously choose.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 



''We are wired to win. You are wired to win. Define your game, embrace the challenge and strive to understand yourself in deeper and more meaningful ways.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''The thing is, the negative experiences we have rarely stay contained to that one issue. They spread. Like a toxic chemical, they seep into all aspects of our lives. If you’re having financial trouble, you’ll either consciously or subconsciously stress about it at dinner, which means you don’t enjoy our meal. You start feeling on edge around family. You feel resentful toward your spouse and distant from your children. You’re annoyed when your dog barks or when your neighbors make too much noise. Little things like traffic and long lines begin prompting your frustration.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Everyone has their problems, and life isn’t always perfect. It never will be. It wasn’t 2,400 years ago, when Socrates was around, and it certainly isn’t today. But if we’re being brutally honest with ourselves, we’ll realize that our own problems are pretty insignificant compared to the rest of the world’s. Really.Think about it.If you’re reading this, chances are your life isn’t as hard as a child in Somalia or an Untouchable in India. Chances are your problems are pretty small in comparison to the ones people had when Socrates was born in 470 BC, before modern medicine or electricity or cars or laws to protect public safety existed.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''We only see the highlight reels of others’ lives while being continually reminded of our own behind the scenes.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Get connected to your reality, your real life instead of your emotionally soaked self-talk narrative about your life.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''Remember all the problems you faced – and eventually overcame. A lot of them may be very similar to what you’re dealing with today.You probably felt a lot of the same emotions back then, too. You thought you’d never get over your ex, that you’d never find a better job, or that you wouldn’t live through the humiliation of some situation.But you did. You raised up and kicked on and, looking back, some of those  problems might even seem a little silly now….Even the more serious problems probably seem a lot different today. After all, you did make it through them, and they ultimately helped shape and form who you are today.''

''The future can have truly great things in store for you.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''In this life, you’ll sometimes have to do things you don’t want to, with people you don’t like, and in places you don’t care for. People will leave your life as quickly and easily as they come into it. You’ll lose money, things will break, and your dog will die.But you’ll get through it all, the good and the bad, just like you did in the past.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Your boat hasn’t and won’t sink so easily. There may be some waves, you might go through some storms, and you’ll probably end up seasick from time to time,but your journey across that ocean we call life will continue.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote


''Face your problems as they come, one by one, give them the attention they need and move on. Bundling them all together into a morass of confusion and letting them overwhelm you just won’t help. It takes precision, patience and discipline of thought. Work through each item pragmatically and with a solution in mind.Remember, everything is solve-able, and if you can’t see a solution, it only means you haven’t worked it out yet.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''your current problems are just another bump in the road.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''You can handle this. It’s not going to kill you. Your life isn’t over. You’ve got plenty more left in the tank. Plenty.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''Our aversion to risk, which was once necessary, no longer is.
Those same survival instincts that once kept us alive can now be the very thing that keeps us from actually living.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Our obsession with certainty can be tragic and counterproductive for two reasons.First, uncertainty is where things happen. Uncertainty is your personal pathway to opportunity. It’s the environment in which you grow, experience new things and produce new, unprecedented results. Uncertainty is where new happens.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''How will you ever get a raise if you don’t take the risk of asking? How will you get ahead in your career if you’re always holding on to certainty and comfort? You won’t. Success is never certain. It never comes without risk. Even if you’re the smartest or the hardest working, there’s no guarantee of anything.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Missing the target isn’t the worst thing you can do. Not taking the shot is.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''You may look at successful people and think they’ve always had it figured out.Many of them seem to have a kind of confidence, charisma or talent that makes everything they do seem easy. They certainly seem to have something you don’t,but believe me, their rise to the top was anything but certain or easy. Most of them doubted it every single day, sometimes hundreds of times per day….They didn’t succeed because they were certain they were going to succeed; They succeeded because they didn’t let uncertainty stop them. They did it anyway.They ignored their doubts and kept pushing forward. They were relentless when the only thing they had to fuel them was relentlessness.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote


 ''The person who accepts how unpredictable and uncertain life is has no choice but to embrace it.They’re not afraid of the uncertain; It’s just a part of life. They don’t seek out certainty because they know it doesn’t really exist. They are also the kind of people who are aware of and open to the real magic and miracles of life and what can be accomplished.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''If you want to do something truly great, you’ll have to accept that some people are going to think you’re delusional or an idiot or righteous.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

  
''What causes most of your worry is trying to predict the future and then refusing to accept things when they don’t or aren’t going to go your way….Focus on the things you can control and release yourself from worrying about what you can’t.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote


''You are not defined by what’s inside your head. You are what you do. Your actions.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Most of us let our internal condition weigh heavily on what we do. But the truly great performers are great precisely because they’ve learned to experience those feelings while side stepping the inclination to act upon them.It’s not that they never doubt themselves or never have a desire to procrastinate or avoid a particular situation. It’s not that they always ‘feel’ like doing what they should.
They simply focus and lean in. They act anyway.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''You don’t have to feel like today is your day,you just have to act like it is.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''While your thoughts can become your reality, it’s only through your actions that your thoughts actually become your life. Until then, they are only thoughts.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

  
''The next time you’re feeling or experiencing any sort of negative or diminishing thought that disempowers you, move on immediately. Act independently of that thought. More specifically, act in a way that’s in your best interests rather than in a way that is dominated by how you automatically think and feel. Each time will be better than the last until your mind wakes up and realizes, 'Hey, I can do this.I’m learning!' ''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote

  
''Do you think Gandhi or Rosa Parks or Abraham Lincoln were never gripped by thoughts of doubt, fear or uncertainty? How about Nikola Tesla or Steve Jobs?Do you seriously think those people woke up every day in the perfect mood with ‘everything’s coming up roses’, playing in their heads? HELL NO! They were wracked by the same kind of shit you are, but they acted ANYWAY.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''It’s all about action. Going out there, doing it and taking all your negative bullshit along for the ride. It’s never going to get any better, any easier or any more understandable. This is it, life is now and you’re never going to have a better moment than this.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


“Our biggest successes are born out of discomfort, uncertainty, and risk.”
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote


 ''In fact, the greater the degree of discomfort you experience, the greater the difficulty, the greater the sense of personal accomplishment that comes after. And that’s exactly why great accomplishments and extraordinary successes are so rare. Because most people don’t like being uncomfortable.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''At this point, when you don’t know whether you’re up or down, how far you have to go or how far you’ve come, there’s only one thing that can keep you going.That thing is relentlessness. The momentum to keep moving and moving and moving, no matter what happens.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''True relentlessness comes when the only thing you have left is relentlessness. When it seems all is lost and all hope and evidence for success has long since vanished, relentlessness is the fuel that drives you through.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 

  
''The most successful among us got to where they are today because they transcended obstacles.But that’s easier said than done. It’s one thing to say ‘never give up’ (I fucking hate bumper sticker-slogans), but quite another to actually put relentlessness into your life’s most worthy causes.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''The world doesn’t stop you from succeeding;you’re not that big of a deal. The universe is neither conspiring for nor against you, and the only thing that stops you is when you buy into the notion that you are stopped. Then, my friend, you really are stopped.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 



''Don’t be fooled by the self-help bullshit that tells you “You deserve it!” Because you don’t. No one does. That conversation will leave you waiting and wanting and eventually a complete victim to your own life. Sometimes you just have to grind it out, stake your claim and hustle for what you want. You will need to quite literally make it happen.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''The only question is whether you agree with what you can and cannot do. An opinion only becomes true when you accept it and stop acting on your potential.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''The key to becoming relentless is to focus on the problem in front of you. Give it your full attention. Become someone who progresses even when all seems lost.The answer is always out there; all you need to do is find it.Then you can move forward to your next obstacle. And you give that obstacle your full attention until it’s taken care of. Then there’s the next and the next and the next.By doing this, you never have to wonder where you’re going. You’re not worried about how many miles you have left to walk. You become someone who loves obstacles rather than avoids them because obstacles are your keys to success and growth. You simply take one step at a time.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''When you’re not sure if you’re following the right path, when you’ve been knocked down a few too many times, it’s completely fine to get discouraged,hell; even defeated. What’s not ok is to stop.Because you can always lean on relentlessness. When you have nothing else,you have relentlessness.Rather than worrying about whether you should keep going or turn back, press in relentlessly. Relentlessness has one direction, and that’s forward. It only has one option, and that’s to keep the momentum going.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''There is no giving up. There is no quitting. There is no changing of plans.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Sit up, straighten your spine and repeat after me: 'I am relentless'.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Your pain, anguish,disappointment (or whatever your thing is), is greater in the areas where the gap is widest between what you expected and what you actually have. In there are your hidden expectations. Do the work here until you fully uncover the expectations you had inadvertently set yourself up for……Your problems don’t derail you, your hidden expectations do!''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''CUT IT OUT! Let go of those expectations NOW!
It’s much more powerful to come to terms with life’s unpredictability and to engage with your circumstances for what they actually are than get bogged down by your refusal to let go of unnecessary or unproductive expectations.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


Unfuck yourself by Gary John Bishop quote


''The next time you catch yourself getting brought down by your expectations,shift things in a different direction. Instead of getting your knickers in a twist about how things didn’t turn out the way you wanted or expected them to,simply accept them for what they are. In that moment you are now freed up to deal with them.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Instead of silently expecting something and feeling slighted when it doesn’t happen, let go of that expectation. If there’s something you want, how about asking for it with no expectation? And when you do something positive or generous, do it because you genuinely want to rather than loading in the added weight of what you expect in return.That game of tit for tat only hurts you both in the long run.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''People are always going to lie, steal, cheat, and everything else one can imagine.It’s just not connected to reality to live in the expectation that they somehow won’t and then throw a hissy fit when they do it anyway. Remember, in those cases, you always end up worse off than they do! Much worse!You end up sticking yourself with resentment, regret, anger or frustration.Remember, they’re not doing that to you, you’re doing that part to yourself! ''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''when you make a plan, what do you have to gain from being welded to the expectations inherent in it? Nothing. When you are free from its expectations you are “in a dance” with life where you can simply execute the plan, and deal with what happens.If it succeeds, you can celebrate. If it fails, you can re-calibrate.
Don’t expect victory or defeat. Plan for victory, learn from defeat.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''Love the life you have, not the one you expected to have.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''If you want your life to be different, you have to make it happen. All of the thinking or meditating or planning or anti-anxiety medication in the world isn’t going to improve your life if you’re not willing to go out and take action and make changes. You can’t sit around waiting for the right mood to strike to for life to play out the way you want it to. Nor can you rely on positive thinking alone to transform things for the better. You have to go out and do.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 
  

''Future you is not going to regret a lack of achievement or the absence of any one thing in your life. The only thing you will regret is not trying.Not striving. Not pushing through when the going got tough.''
  ― Gary John Bishop, Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life 


''You won’t regret not making a million dollars, you’ll regret never starting that business or quitting that lousy job. You won’t regret not marrying a supermodel,you’ll regret staying in that dead-end relationship when you knew you could do better. You won’t regret not looking like a bodybuilder, you’ll regret stopping at the drive thru every night on your way home and living a lie.And this will happen to you. You will die. You will go through all of that on your own….Unless you take the action that’s needed to change, to build the life you want,the life you can be proud of.''

 ''People become trapped in their past, trapped in their childhood. It’s one of the many reasons we tell ourselves that we ‘can’t’. It’s an easy way to relieve yourself of the responsibility you have for your current circumstances.''
