The best piece of advice I ever found

6 harsh truths that will make you a better person.

Its the year 2014, One fine day I logged into office, grabbed a cup of coffee and sat at my desk. The first thing I would do, obviously like any one else is open Facebook and check the status.

During the casual browsing, my eyes fell on an article one of my friend shared. The article name is “6 harsh truths that will make you a better person”. Now, I detest the links with the click bait titles like six things which will make you smart, happy, awesome… blah blah blah… I usually don’t fall for these listicles. But, not sure what happened, I decided to click the link and give it a read.

Its rare that you come up with a piece of advice that will make you drop everything you do and think of what you are doing with your life. I have read a lot of books on personality development but, damn! this one is gold.


Before I blabber about how awesome it is. Go ahead, click on the below link and read it. Its HEAVY on NSFW language and videos… with that warning here we go.

6 harsh truths that will make you better person by David Wong on Cracked

Dude, you haven’t gone! Please do yourself a favor and read it. I can wait here. In fact you don’t need to come back also. The main purpose of the article is finished.


You back? That’s awesome mate! Thanks. So, now that you are here let me blabber about its awesomeness a bit.


As the title says, its just pure harsh truths. It will stir you from inside. It doesn’t promises anything. It doesn't point about the environment or the upbringing as the issue like in the traditional self help advice. It puts the entire responsibility on you and does it in a very hard and straight forward way. The entire set of books I have been reading before are trying to sugar coat the same stuff he mentioned in the article.

As mentioned in the article, there are two ways of approaching the advice. You can scarp it out as rubbish or you can accept the truth and implement it. What ever you choose, good luck!


I want to take this opportunity to thank David Wong for the amazing help he has done to me.
