Unfu*k Yourself also greatly explores the art of relentlessness. The author argues that it is important to take out what you want out of life, do not wait for someone to give it to you`. He notes that this will be painful, but nothing worth having comes easy. When exploring relentlessness, Bishop also tells the reader to be focused, destroy obstacles one after the other and expect nothing but learn to accept everything. Disappointment is an unmet expectation (Engers para. 3).
In one’s attempt to be relentless, it is vital to expect nothing and accept everything as long as it leads you to achieve your goal. Instead of thinking that there will be a positive outcome out of everything that you do, expect nothing and expect everything, including the failures, losses, and setbacks. Accept feeling f*cked because failure to do this will stop you from being persistent. Bishop further tells the reader to accept reality as it comes, and advises them to deal with it without any emotional bias. People should love what they already possess and be in control of their emotional state. The author also advises his audience to own their reactions, dispute their beliefs and interpretation of things and hence accept everything and act, and own their reactions. Eventually, there is always a solution to everything.
According to Bishop, if you want to unfu*k yourself, you have to keep going no matter what. After all, “True relentlessness comes when the only thing you have left is relentlessness” (Bishop 75). When it appears like everything is all lost, and all hope, as well as evidence for success, have long disappeared, relentlessness is the fuel that drives you through. This will eventually help ensure that you solve your problems and most importantly foster the will for change.
