What if you could look at life’s hardest moments with a different perspective? In his bestseller Unlearn, rapper, spoken-word artist, blogger, social media influencer and former schoolteacher Humble the Poet offered digestible advice for letting go of problematic mindsets and learning new, unconventional ways of moving through life. In Things No One Else Can Teach Us, Humble the Poet once again flips the conventional script for happiness and success, this time showing us how our hardest moments can be our greatest teachers. Humble uses raw, honest stories from his own life to reveal how a change in mindset can help us to see all experiences, particularly the most difficult, as opportunities for growth. This shifting of perspective—from seeing only the negative to beginning to see the lesson, or the positive spin—is the “magic” that allows us to take control of our lives. It’s a power we all possess; we just don’t often embrace it. Humble the Poet empowers and equips us to create these silver linings in our own lives, priming us to better handle future challenges. From ending a relationship to going broke to losing a loved one, our most difficult times as well as our most mundane moments can lead us to grow. Our task is to recognize those opportunities, so that we ultimately become more self-aware, grateful and empowered. In his trademark style, Humble the Poet gives readers a peek behind his own curtain at the self-sabotaging ruts that he transformed into teaching moments. From his rocky start trying to become a rapper, to nearly going broke, to being the victim of racial prejudice, he uses his experiences to make his lessons approachable. As simple as it is eye-opening, this book reminds us that we all have magic within that allows us to transform the way we respond to everyday challenges and ultimately become our best selves.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Having previously worked as an elementary school teacher, the author taps the informal vibe of a cool authority figure as he casually reveals his hardships, low points, and unflattering thoughts to demonstrate how ‘you can’t be yourself if you don’t know who you are.’ Each chapter opens with an anecdote, including accounts of difficulties producing music videos and stories of working with Pharrell Williams, that segues into general insights meant to guide readers away from negative thinking.” Publishers Weekly
“Forces you to look into the deepest parts of yourself and have an honest conversation…This is the road map out of your comfort zone and into a better, more meaningful life.” Lilly Singh, New York Times bestselling author
