Publisher's Summary

The rapper, spoken word artist, poet, blogger, social media influencer, and international best-selling author of Unlearn delivers unorthodox lessons for shifting our perceptions and learning to create silver linings from our most difficult moments.

Every one of us endures setbacks, disappointments, and failures that can incapacitate us. But we don’t have to let them. Instead, we can use these events as opportunities for growth. In Things No One Else Can Teach Us, Humble the Poet flips the conventional script for happiness and success, showing us how our most painful experiences can be our greatest teachers. 

Humble shares raw, honest stories from his own life - from his rocky start becoming a rapper to nearly going broke to being the victim of racial prejudice - to demonstrate how a change in mindset can radically alter our outlook. This shift in perspective - one that stops seeing the negative and starts seeing the lesson or positive spin - is what no one else can teach us. We must figure things out on our own, often through difficult and heartbreaking experiences. 

Humble inspires us to create these silver linings ourselves, preparing us to better handle any challenges that may arise. From a breakup to going broke to losing a loved one, our hardest moments can help us flourish, but only if we recognize and seize the opportunity. By doing so, we will become more self-aware, grateful, and empowered.

Simple yet profound, Humble’s message is clear. While we can’t control the vagaries of life, we have the power to control how we react to them. Things No One Else Can Teach Us reminds us all that we have the power within us to transform the way we respond to everyday challenges and ultimately be our best selves.

HTP’S STORY AND LESSONS LEARNED

Reflections of the social media personality, rapper, poet, author on his life lessons so far. Some really good guidance based on the experiences of HTP. Some of these are basic life experiences others are professionals as he made his transition from school teacher to poet / social media start. Many ideas / lessons put forward, including: Focus on the journey, not just the goal; Don’t cry because its over, smile that it happened; HTP also gets into some heavy subjects that most if not all of us face, such as coming to terms with spiriruality and being addicted to self pity. The line that resonated the most for me? “All personal growth lies outside our comfort zone”. In summary, a very relatable and heartfelt book. HBT has told his truth and encourages us to tell our own.

Highly recommended

I am an avid “self-help” book “listener”. This by far is the best I have listened to. This is the second book I have listened to of his and it is even better than his first one.

Must read or hear!

I actually would recommend many to hear or read this. We all need to sit back and take a moment. We all need to know when to regroup. All need to understand many different perspectives.

Wonderfully inspiring

This doesn’t feel like self help from someone with great success, instead it’s feels like advice from someone who has lived and reflects on that life, the mistakes and successes. Inspirational for any sex, race, creed or upbringing.
