    Description

    Over the past few years, Brianna Wiest has gained renown for her deeply moving, philosophical writing. This new compilation of her published work features pieces on why you should pursue purpose over passion, embrace negative thinking, see the wisdom in daily routine, and become aware of the cognitive biases that are creating the way you see your life.

    Some of these pieces have never been seen; others have been read by millions of people around the world. Regardless, each will leave you thinking: This idea changed my life.

    Finding ways on being a better version of yourself

    Why am I giving it 5 out of 5 even when I agree with some ideas repeat during the book?
    Two main reasons. One, if an important concept or idea repeats, it can only help to fully grasp its importance and meaning or to revisit the concept from a different perspective. Two, the book is long and I personally could do without some parts, but it is a compilation. I might not be interested in some chapters, just as other people might not be interested in the ones I liked most. The importance relies on that the sum of it all makes it whole; and it's a compilation!

    As previously mentioned, 101 ESSAYS that will CHANGE the way YOU THINK by Brianna Wiest is a compilation of her previously published philosophical essays. It's about: the importance of slowing down and being in the moment; fear and stepping into the unknown; happiness, passion, and purpose; identity; having choices; suffering and letting go; courage and hope. What I got from listening to this book? Invaluable insights to apply to my every day, helping me be more aware, purposeful, and happy. What else could I ask for?

    From the book, ideas I want to keep:
    * Live in the moment. Where are we rushing to? Death?
    * Routines are fundamental!
    * Problems are pathways. Taking action shapes who we are.
    * Being uncomfortable is good! Sit down with it and explore.
    * "Life doesn't get easier, you get smarter."
    * Find balance in the three kinds of happiness: pleasure, grace, and excellence.
    * In order to build resilience, one must listen to the positive and the negative.
    * It's neither about passion nor motivation but purpose.
    * "Kindness is the factory of love."
    * You can have everything, just not simultaneously.
    * Success is not a result, but fully being aware and growing from the process of getting there.
    * You don't need to understand everything or have every answer because even if you try, you will never do.

    My favorite quotes are:
    * "Accomplishing goals is not success, how much you expand in the process is."
    * "Suffering is just the refusal to accept what is."
    * "Pleasures will never make you whole."
    * "The world is not as it is but as we are."
    * "You think that being uncomfortable and fearful means you shouldn't do something. Being uncomfortable and fearful means you definitely should."
    * "You have everything just not at the same time." (quoting Oprah)
    * "The only way you grow is by stepping into the unknown."
    * "The good teaches you well, but the bad teaches you better."
    * "You can choose what you want to suffer for."
    * "Success is falling in love with the process, not the outcome."
    * "The problem is not pain but the inability to find its purpose."
    * "Suffering begins to thrive when we don't listen to it."
    * "You don't need to have every answer nor will you ever have every answer."

    I recommend this book to anyone who wants to take the time to look deeper within themselves, to those open to ideas, and who will take the time it takes to not only learn but understand a concept before moving on.

    Note: I listened to the audiobook. The number of the chapter being read does not correspond to the chapter displayed on the Audible app. For example, if you are listening to chapter 12, the audio says it's chapter 11.

    Not for audio listening

    Good book, but not a good listen type book. This book needs to be absorbed only in print.

    could be better

    good material but way too brief and very repetitive. she could have elaborated more on important points instead of repeating the same thing multiple times.

    A bunch of lists???

    This book started out really good and I did enjoy large chunks of it. It definitely has great insights and it gets you thinking and analyzing yourself and your life. What I didn’t like about it was that so many chapters were just lists. Not even with any commentary or analysis, just lists of things to think about. That part got old because it doesn’t follow a thought and get deep. After a while it just feels like endless lists of reasons/questions/thought-provoking statements.

    Excellent book. Too much cussing

    This was an excellent book. I enjoyed the format and it has a lot of great subjects to think about. I wish I could recommend this book to my family but I can’t because she added SO MUCH unnecessary and out of place four letter words and G.D. Cussing. It was so off pudding and unnecessary. I don’t understand why she decided to do that.

    A different perspective

    Absolutely love this book. I have the audiobook, kindle, and hard copy. This has changed me and given me a different perspective. This book has helped me evaluate and really think and get to root cause of why I think the way I do. This book is worth every word. I was legit sad when it ended, I love her wisdom and the insight she provides.

    She plants seeds that blossom into fruitful thoughts

    I enjoyed Brianna’s fresh take on many areas in life; excellent for late night work sessions or road trips. Deep thinking and common sense beautifully crafted into a book.

    It's like reading an Instagram post... or Buzzfeed

    These aren't 'essays' so much as they are lists. The entirety of this book is made of bulleted lists and simply phrased paragraphs. It is essentially an influencers inspirational Instagram posts all compiled into one misleading book. It felt as though the intended audience was a Buzzfeed article at best... and at worst, a motivational poster.
    I really wanted to like this book, truly. I was excited for it, but listening to it was like having my teeth pulled. It was so repetitive and unrealistic.
    The narrator did a great job with these listacles though!

    Did Not Enjoy It

    It was just not what I expected. Found the book boring and choppy. Did not inspire me in anyway.

    This has nothing at all to do with essays.

    This is a semi psychological book about how to change you're life. The title is completely misguiding!

    I didnt like it for commute and as audiobook ..

    she has very strong ideas that are convincing partly very novel and captivating .. but i dont know if an audiobook is a good medium to convey this ideas .. its more like a compendium you come back to at times .. on the commute it was just too much input. too hard to chew and about ..

    Hatte etwas anderes erwartet

    101 mal “sei dies und das, aber sei dabei du selbst”.
    Fühlt sich an wie eine langgezogene Brigitte Ausgabe, absoluter Fehlkauf!

    B.own away!

    Pushed of reading the book for a long time as I have read enough self help etc to not feel psyched about it. In the end, I trusted the recommended enough to give it a try.

    Jesus Christ, this was so good. No idea why it wasn't on my radar. Never have I paused an audio book to take notes or just think and ruminate about a thought for a few minutes. Some of the stuff resonated so deeply with me, I thought about it for days.

    I am blown away, my life has been significantly impacted by these essays. Thanks for putting them together and sharing them!
