Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life

Have you ever felt like a hamster on a wheel, furiously churning your way through life but somehow going nowhere? It seems like there’s a barrage of information surrounding us in our everyday lives with the keys to this thing or that thing, be it wealth, success, happiness, or purpose. The truth is, most of it fails to capture what it truly takes to overcome our greatest barrier to a greater life…ourselves. What if everything you ever wanted residing in you like a well of potential, waiting to be expressed? Unfu*k Yourself is the handbook for the resigned and defeated, a manifesto for real life change and unleashing your own greatness.

QUOTES BY GARY BISHOP

1. “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.”

2. “you must first accept that while there are things that have happened in your life that you had no say in, you are 100 percent responsible for what you do with your life in the aftermath of those events. Always, every time, no excuses.”

3. “you are 100 percent responsible for what you do in your life”

4. “You have the life you’re willing to put up with”

5. “In simple terms, the language you use to describe your circumstances determines how you see, experience, and participate in them and dramatically affects how you deal with your life and confront problems both big and small.”

6. “Remember, everything is solve-able, and if you can’t see a solution, it only means you haven’t worked it out yet.”

7. “Here’s the deal: 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 have long since vanished, relentlessness is the fuel that drives you through.”

8. “found that positive self-talk can dramatically improve mood, boost confidence, increase productivity, and more. Much more. In fact, as evidenced by Professor Hart and his studies, it can be one of the key components to a happy, successful life. The bad news is, the reverse is also true: 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. With”

9. “Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant. Either you control your destiny, or your destiny will control you. Life won’t pause for your pauses and procrastinations. It won’t stop for your confusions and fear. It will continue right along without you.”

10. “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.”

Are you tired of feeling fu*ked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unfu*ked version of yourself. “Wake up to the miracle you are,” he directs. “Here’s what you’ve forgotten: You’re a fu*king miracle of being.” It isn’t other people that are standing in your way, it isn’t even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive, it’s yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

In Unfu*k Yourself, Bishop leads you through a series of seven assertions:

  • I am willing
  • I am wired to win
  • I got this
  • I embrace the uncertainty
  • I am not my thoughts; I am what I do
  • I am relentless
  • I expect nothing and accept everything

Lead the life you were meant to have—Unfu*k Yourself.

Most of the conversations you have on any given day are with yourself
• We have a massive say in which of those thoughts we attach significance to
• The kind of talk you engage in has a profound impact on the quality of your life
“Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears” -Marcus Aurelius
• People spend their lives waiting for the cavalry all the while never realizing they are
the cavalry
• Our thoughts can actually change the physical structure of our brain
• This phenomenon is called neural plasticity
• No matter how difficult, challenging, or pressing life circumstances can be, how you
fundamentally relate to and engage with those circumstances will have the biggest
say in how they turn out
• The answer is inside you rather than outside you
• There is no greater knowledge than the knowledge you have verified for yourself in
your own experience
• You have the life you are willing to put up with
“Circumstances don’t make the man, they only reveal him to himself” -Apectetus
• You are 100% responsible for what you do with your life and the aftermath of those
events
• Always. Every time. No excuses.
• Once you find the obstacles in your life as a matter of willing and unwilling instead of
weighing yourself down with negative opinions of yourself and your circumstance,
you can break through the self-imposed barriers that are truly holding you back
• Ask yourself “am I willing?” until you get a resounding “yes“
Chapter 3: I am wired to win
• Our thoughts are so powerful that they’re constantly pushing you towards their
goals even when you don’t realize what those goals actually are
• Your brain is wired to win
• 95% of what we do in our day to day life is controlled by our subconscious
• Only a tiny fraction of the things we say or do are out of a sense of volition
• For the most part, you’re on autopilot
• 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 and are reality
Chapter 4: I got this
“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light” -Aristotle
• Take a moment to put all of your past and present problems into perspective
• You shouldn’t let what happens in one area of your life affect your outlook on
the whole
Chapter 5: I embrace uncertainty
• We know that taking risks leads to better rewards, but we are so used to looking for
certainty
• Until recently, the world was a much more dangerous place for humans
• While it’s not a utopia, it is much safer than before
• Uncertainty is where things happen
• It is your personal pathway to opportunity
• It is the environment in which you grow, experience new things, and produce new,
unprecedented results
• Uncertainty is where new happens
“The desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise” -Tacitus
“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The next
best thing you can do is the wrong thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing” –
Theodore Roosevelt
• Achieving your goals and perceived certainty can blunt or mellow your ambitions and
desires
• Certainty is a complete illusion
• When we think we know everything, we inadvertently turn ourselves away from the
unknown, and by default, whole new realms of success
• 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
• Part of our aversion to uncertainty comes from being judged by others
• We are afraid of what the tribe thinks
Chapter 6: I am not my thoughts, I am what I do
“We become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate
actions, brave by performing brave actions” -Aristotle
• You change your life by doing, not thinking about doing
• Doing is the quickest way to change your thoughts
• Don’t act on your thoughts. Act on what’s in front of you
• Change your life by changing your actions
“Action may not bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action” -Benjamin
Disraeli
Chapter 7: I am relentless
• The more unique and out of the box your endeavor, the stronger the pushback can
be
• Mostly because the other people in life have gotten used to relating to you as a
specific kind of person
• Anytime you attempt to break out of that mold, you’re not only messing with your
own world, you are also messing with theirs
• This resistance also comes from your own mind too
• True relentlessness comes when the only thing you have left is relentlessness
• When it seems like all seems lost, relentlessness is the fuel that drives you
through
“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without
accepting it” -Aristotle
Chapter 8: Expect nothing and accept everything
• The upsets strewn throughout your entire life are a product of thousands
of unspoken, unrecognized expectations that cast a giant shadow across your life
experience, causing great stress when you’re trying to make fit with your
expectations and great disappointment when life doesn’t match up to them
• They actually get in the way of a real life and real issues that require attention
• When you expect nothing, you’re living in the moment
• You are not worrying about the future or rejecting the past. You’re simply
embracing your situation as it comes
• When you accept everything, it doesn’t mean you’re OK with it or agree with it
• It simply means that you are owning it and in charge of it
• You can always change something when you take ownership and responsibility
for it
• Don’t expect victory or defeat. Plan for victory, learn from defeat
• The expectation of people loving you or respecting you is a pointless exercise too
• Be free to love them the way they are, and be loved the way that they love you
• Free yourself from the burden and melodrama of expectation
• Love the life you have, not the one you expected to have
Chapter 9: where next?

1. I am willing
2. I am wired to win
3. I got this
4. I embrace the uncertainty
5. I am not my thoughts, I am what I do
6. I am relentless
7. I expect nothing and accept everything
• In order to improve your internal world, you have to start by taking action in the
external world get out of your mind and get out 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’ll regret is not trying, not striving, not pushing through when the
going got tough

• Don’t wait for the right moment or for inspiration to strike
• They get up and they do and they try and they fail
• Even before they feel ready, they are flying the airplane while they’re building it

ever done

look behind you

good and bad
