Elevate Your Life: The Art Of Not Giving A Fuck

Fotor0121151749

If there is one factor that is paramount to a man achieving success in life whether that’s with the opposite sex or making money, it’s the art of not giving a fuck.

Where most people err is believing that not giving a fuck means that you don’t care about anything, but this is not true.

The art of not giving a fuck means that you do care about certain people and what you’re doing, but you’re not giving a fuck about the opinions of others, nor will you be swayed back and forth due to haters opinions of you.

The subtle approach of not giving a fuck carries more weight then an outward demonstration of not giving a fuck.

I’m sure you’ve seen the social media updates of someone you’re linked to: “Fuck the haters! IDGAF!”

What this actually screams is: “I DO care, but I’ll post this so people think I don’t care”.

The best approach would be to not even address the haters. Don’t even give them the time of day. The only time I will call someone out publicly is if they are attacking my reputation. That is different then the run of the mill jealousy etc.

A lion cares little for the opinion of sheep.

When developing the art of not giving a fuck, it’s important to distinguish the difference between the things you do care about and the things you don’t. I for one, don’t give a fuck about sports. I am a fan of hockey and like to attend games, but I don’t keep track of my local team’s stats, so in that sense I don’t give a fuck. This is based on me prioritizing my time and that does not include reading up on the latest sports news. This doesn’t make me right or wrong. It’s merely my opinion and choice that I’ve made.

For someone reading this they may greatly enjoy sports and follow it closely, but they may not give a fuck about cars (which I do care about). We all have varying opinions of what we care about, but the lesson in the art of not giving a fuck, is that you learn to prioritize your time.

If something is important to you, you will make time. The same if a girl wants to see you. If she’s even remotely into you, she will make time.

By adopting the art of not giving a fuck this helps me focus on the bigger picture and eliminate anything that may get in the way of my goals and vision.

This tunnel focus is what leads to massive leaps in personal growth.

Only invest time in those things that you’re actually interested in. Cut out the noise. Don’t feel pressured to join your office fantasy football league if you truly don’t give a fuck and know it’ll just be a distraction from achieving your goals.

Fitting in isn’t necessarily a good thing. If you feel pressure to conform to other people’s demands, then practice not giving a fuck i.e. don’t conform and do you.

The art of not giving a fuck ties into many aspects of social dynamics including holding Frame within relationships, taking calculated business risks and overall living a life that is focused on you and your success. Even if you’re a charity case at heart, you can’t help others until you’ve helped yourself. Get ‘selfish’, learn to not give a fuck and you might just see you’re accomplishing more, becoming successful and having girls chase you, instead of you chasing them.

Start not giving a fuck about the petty shit in life and watch you elevate yourself.

    Haha I laughed, but it’s so true.
    Last week my roomie had a party at ours and it was obviously a bit awkward that I just stayed inside my room and never opened the door and joined them all for a drink or two, but I just knew that it would get me distracted from work and I thought “fuck it”. I’ve already cared enough about other people’s opinions about me in life. So I got in some work that day instead of chatting to his whole family and friends. Live is about YOU, in the end of the day.

    That wasn’t me before I got into this self development.

    1. Dude. No need to be an ass (locked up in your room seems weird). Walk out say hello for a minute then go back to work.

  4. It’s better for people to figure out that you don’t give a fuck than you outright telling the world. I think we can get away with saying “I don’t give a fuck” when someone says something that warrants such a reply.

    Another great post from Christian himself. Time to take this art and Salvador Dali the shit out of it.
