Mark Manson wrote an article titled The Most Important Question of Your Life. “What are you willing to struggle for? Because that seems to be a greater determinant of how our lives turn out.”

“People want an amazing physique… People want to start their own business… People want a partner, a spouse..”

“The quality of your life is not determined by the quality of your positive experiences but the quality of your negative experiences. And to get good at dealing with negative experiences is to get good at dealing with life”

“For most of my adolescence and young adulthood, I fantasized about being a musician — a rock star, in particular… Our culture would tell me that I’ve somehow failed myself, that I’m a quitter or a loser… But the truth is far less interesting than that: I thought I wanted something, but it turns out I didn’t. End of story.”

“Who you are is defined by the values you are willing to struggle for.”

“This is the most simple and basic component of life: our struggles determine our successes. So choose your struggles wisely, my friend.”
