The World’s Biggest Lie (Book Review)


There are too many people who live by the words ‘go with the flow’. 

Additionally, these people like to attribute everything that happens to them as part of the universe’s plan.

Not only is that a great way to think! 

But that also means that you don’t have to take responsibility for anything that happens in your life.

So when you turn out to be fat, poor, and lonely, you can blame it all on the universe.

Like a fucking loser.

Letting ‘the universe’ take control of your life is silly. 

Control what you can, make peace with what you can’t.

For example, look at the huge successes we see in the media: 

Do you think Bill Gates, Donald Trump, or Oprah Winfrey ever just put out work, shrugged, and said ‘Hey, whatever happens, happens’.

Hell no! They took a proactive approach towards life. 

In fact, they went in with the mindset that they can take on the world! 

And the world paid attention!

Still some fucking people have the nerve to explain life-changing events as the ‘universe’s plan’. 

Because they let what happens happen, rather than fight for their mission.

Don’t be average like that. Don’t have an average mindset.

Instead, be a professional at managing what life dishes out at you and what you dish out at life.

Take on the abundance mentality and wake up saying ‘I’m ready to take on the world!’ not ‘I hope today goes well’, like a pussy

You have the choice to be great, or the choice to not be great. 

If you only have one life, why the hell would you spend it with life riding your ass?

Your life belongs to you, it doesn’t belong to anyone else and it doesn’t belong to the universe.

It belongs to you.

Be a professional player in the game of life. 

Don’t be an amateur watching from the bench.

Live Your Life, Don’t Let Life Live You

I highly recommend the short novel The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. 

Specifically, it will open your mind and show you that life is something you can have within your control.

Not to mention, there are plenty of incredible quotes in the novel. 

But I don’t want to take away from its message. So I’ll leave you with one:

“What’s the world’s greatest lie?” the boy asked, completely surprised. “It’s this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie.”    – The Alchemist
