Here is an article by Mark Manson which made an impression. His articles often do because he doesn’t mince his words or his opinions. It’s kind of a dark refreshing (counter happy culture?) mood he creates.
Currently I am learning about my self sabotage skills with regards to starting my own personal-oriented business. Here Mark talks about his own ways of avoiding exactly that which he wanted (like me). And he adds that many of us have these tendencies (which is selfishly comforting).
It is the demon/angel combination or the light/shadow pairing which makes us human.
As he sets it out better than I could or should précis, here it is – How to Overcome Your Demons.
