Mark Manson quotes page 2

The biggest factors on your status and appearance, the two F's: Fashion and Fitness.
Mark Manson, Models - Attract Women Through Honesty

The concept of "high value" is a pedestal. Coming up with special pick up lines is a pedestal.
Performing is a pedestal. Believing you have to treat her differently in any way because of
how she looks is a pedestal. I recommend guys switch to a binary system of 1 or 0. A "1" is a
woman you'd like to be with. A "0" is a woman you wouldn't. Why you want to be with her or
not, how she looks, whether she's just OK looking or the most beautiful woman on the planet
- none of that matters. Either you're interested or you're not. The rest doesn't matter.

Most people exert their will power on temporary fixes rather than life-long habits.
Mark Manson

The reason rejection hurts, is because it's basically a judgement on your performance. So if
you are treating your dating life like a performance, if you are trying to impress her all the
time and pulling out all of your best lines and jokes and she rejects you - you're: "Oh, you're
a shitty performer." But if you're just being honest about who you are, like "This is who I
am... this is where I come from... this is what I think..." and she rejects you - then it shows
you that you're not right for her. That you're not compatible... Rejection actually becomes an
ally because it sorts out the right people in your life and the wrong people in your life. And 
you become ok with it. You go out, you meet a woman, and you think she's a bitch. It's
great. We're not compatible. You don't go home and worry about. You don't go on a forum
and ask guys, "How do I make her like me next time?" Because you don't care.
Mark Manson

When a compliment comes from a man seeking nothing in return, it's a gift of truth, a piece of
his vulnerability and infinitely more powerful as a result.

The Law of "Fuck Yes or No" states that when you want to get involved with someone new,
in whatever capacity, they must inspire you to say "Fuck Yes" in order for you to proceed
with them.
Mark Manson

You cannot be an attractive and life-changing presence to some women without being a joke
or an embarrassment to others. You simply can't. You have to be controversial. You have to
polarize. It's the name of the game.

The loss of something is three to four times more painful than the joy of gaining the same
thing. It's an unfortunate mechanism that has kept our species alive and thriving but also
keeps many of us in a constant state of irritation and stress... Gratitude is the skill of
happiness. It's the cure for an emotional vampire. And it is indeed a skill. It requires practice
and effort and habit.
Mark Manson

Rejection exists for a reason - it's a means to keep people who are not good for each other
apart. Men don't seem to understand that if a woman rejects him because he's short, or
because she doesn't like his hair, or because she finds him boring, then he wasn't going to
enjoy being around her anyway. Ask yourself: Why would you want to be intimate with
someone who doesn't appreciate you? Why would you EVER settle for such a person?
Because she's hot? Come on, have a little more self-respect.

Most people invest their time and effort chasing material wealth and social status. I believe if
I invest my time and effort into knowledge, new experience and relationships, then material
wealth and status will be a natural side-effect of that.
Mark Manson

We mistake comfort for happiness... Comfort sells easier than happiness. Comfort is easy. It 
requires no effort and no work. Happiness takes effort. It requires being proactive,
confronting fears, facing difficult situations, and having unpleasant conversations. Comfort
equals sales. We've been sold comfort for generations and for generations we bought: bigger
houses, separated further and further out into the suburbs; bigger TVs, more movies, and
take-out. The American public is becoming docile and complacent. We're obese and entitled.
Mark Manson

Social status (and therefore attractiveness) is determined by how you behave around other
people, how other people behave around you, and how you treat yourself.

In 1906 there was an Italian economist named Vilfredo Pareto. One day Pareto noticed that
every year 20% of the pea pods in his garden produced approximately 80% of the peas. This
got him thinking about economic output on a larger scale. Sure enough, he began to find that
in various industries, societies and even companies, 80% of the production often came from
the 20% most productive faction. This became known as the Pareto Principle, or what is now
often referred to as the 80/20 Principle. The 80/20 Principle states that 80% of the output or
results will come from 20% of the input or action...
What are the 20% of your possessions you get the most value out of?
What do you spend 20% of your time doing that gives you 80% of your happiness?
Who are the 20% of people you're close to who make you the happiest?
What are the 20% of the clothes you wear 80% of the time?
What's the 20% of food you eat 80% of the time?
Chances are these are easy questions for you to answer. You've just never considered them
before. And once you've answered them, you can easily focus on increasing the efficiencies
in your life.
Mark Manson

New behaviors only require will power until they're ingrained in us, until we no longer have to
think about them. Instead of asking yourself what goal you'd like to reach, go one step
further and ask which habits you'd have to implement in order for that goal to be achievable,
and then expend the will power on implementing those life habits.
Mark Manson

For decades, research has tied gratefulness and appreciation to happiness. People who are
happier tend to be more grateful and appreciative for what they have. But what they've also
found is that it also works the other way around: consciously practicing gratitude makes one
happier. It makes one appreciate what one has and helps one to remain in the present
moment. Practicing gratitude increases accountability which directly leads to higher self
esteem and happiness.
Mark Manson

You could say men and women almost speak two entirely different languages. Men mostly
communicate through facts, stories and data. We discuss sports statistics, how we fixed our
car last weekend and where we plan on going next month. If a man says. "I'll see you at 6
PM," he typically means it literally... Women communicate more in feelings and specifically,
through intentions. Sure, they still pay attention to the facts and stories going on on the
surface, but what's actually communicated to them is the intention and feeling underneath.
This is sub-communication.

Self-Discipline: How close your day-to-day behavior reflects the person you wish to be.
Mark Manson

A man who becomes comfortable with his vulnerability becomes the opposite of needy. If
neediness is prioritizing others' perceptions about you over your own, then vulnerability is the
exact opposite. Being vulnerable forces you to accept and prioritize your own perception of
yourself over those of others. Why? Because you have no choice. As you make yourself
vulnerable, you will experience both success and rejection. And as you experience success or
rejection, you will be forced to upgrade your own sense of self worth. There's no other
option. Slowly, but surely you'll chisel a "Don't Give a Fuck" attitude out of yourself that is
genuine yet giving at the same time. A benevolent selfishness. But this can only be done by
consistently exposing yourself and opening up your emotions and true thoughts first to
yourself and then to those around you.
