MINIKRITIKA // Johnny B. Truant: The Universe Doesn't Give a Flying Fuck About You

If you walk around every day on eggshells, nervous about making a mistake or looking stupid, then you should read this.

If you have a „next big thing” in mind you want to do because you know it will be awesome (starting the business, making the big move, launching the nonprofit, writing the book) but are afraid of doing what it would take to make that thing happen, then you should read this.

The universe is very big. You are very small. In fact, you're so small and so insignificant in the big picture that you don't even register to the eye of the cosmos. The universe was here before you were born and will be here long after you're gone, and your life is but a blip on its vast, vast radar. If your life is to matter, it's not going to matter to the universe. It's up to you make your life matter in the only way you can: by doing things that make a difference to you, to those around you, and to those whose lives you touch. Time is short. You have exactly NOW to do whatever it is you're here to do, or to let the inexorable passage of hours and days and years kill your potential like fruit left to die on a vine.

The universe doesn’t hate you, but it doesn’t love you, either. You’re just an atom in its infinite workings. The universe doesn’t care if you live, die, suffer, or thrive. Whatever your life here will mean is up to you.

Stop worrying so much about what others think and start being who you're supposed to be. It's time to do some epic shit.

Nem egy hosszú könyv, ezért nem is lehet hosszú értékelést írni róla. Szintén Amazonról szereztem be, e-könyvben, ingyen. Mindössze 14 oldal, egy bögre tea kortyolgatása közben végig is lehet olvasni.

Vicces volt, és remekül rátapintott néhány dologra. Ez a könyv szerintem egy fricska azoknak az embereknek, akik abban hisznek, hogy az univerzum határozza meg a dolgokat, és rajta múlik, hogy most te éppen egy piros autót látsz vagy egy sárgát. Szerintem egyszer érdemes elolvasni, bár annyira nem volt hű, de...

Kedvenc idézetek

"Stop waiting for someone to give you what you want. The universe is too busy to care. It has worlds to create and galaxies to destroy. If you're worried about death and about your own end, don't. It's coming whether you like it or not. You will either arrive at the end of your life in style or you will arrive broken and beaten, but whichever way you choose, have no doubt that you WILL ARRIVE."

"The universe doesn't hate you, but it doesn't love you, either. You're just an atom in its infinite workings. The universe doesn't care if you live, die, suffer, or thrive.
Only YOU care.
If your life is to mean something, it's up to YOU."

"Most people think that they need to be tapped on the shoulder by the Epic Fairy if they ever hope to be epic, or if they're ever going to have the audacity to do something truly epic. But it's not true. Want to be epic? Just do epic shit. There's nothing else to it.
People always say, „I wish I was amazing. I wish I was awesome.”
Fucking hell. Stop whining and just be it already. Be fucking awesome. Nobody's going to give you the gift of awesome. Nobody's going to make you good, or great, or amazing, or epic. Nobody's going to make you an expert or an authority or a voice anyone should listen to. Nobody's going to level you up. If you want that next level, take it. Take it for yourself.
Grab it. Become it. Claim it."

"Do yourself a favor, right now, and realize two things:
1. You will keep getting older, and then you will die. 
2. Everything that's ever entered your experience has lasted and will continue to last for only a brief moment in the life of the universe.
So stop wondering what it all means and how you'll possibly ever do X and what people will think, and get on with your life already.
Stop being a pussy and go do something amazing."

★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8/10)
