What a great week to be alive!! Gosh...we have so much to be grateful for! I have been working on reading my book every single day, and BOY - it has made a huge difference in my life! I have been reading You Are a Badass - How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero and it has seriously been a game changer for me! I am only on page 85, but I have already found so much stuff that I love! When I finish the book I will for sure do a review and share some of my favorite parts, but today I want to share a couple things that have already stuck with me!
"You need to go from wanting to change your life to deciding to change your life. Wanting can be done sitting on the couch [with a] travel magazine in your lap. Deciding means jumping in all the way, doing whatever it takes, and going after your dreams with the tenacity of a dateless cheerleader a week before prom night."
"You're gonna have to push past your fears, fail over and over again and make a habit of doing things you're not so comfy doing...As challenging as this may sound, its nowhere near as brutal as waking up in the middle of the night feeling like someone parked a car on your chest, crushed under the realization that your life is zooming by and you have yet to start living it in a way that has any real meaning to you."
"...believe that we live in a world of limitless possibilities...[if you] roll up your sleeves, take some risks, and totally go for it, you'll wake up one day and realize you're living the kind of life you used to be jealous of."
"The more time you spend in the moment, the richer your life will be."
"Affirmations work...you need to rewire your brain to think differently...figure out which affirmations you need to hear the most and repeat them all day long."
"Comparison is the fastest way to take all the fun out of life...you are more than enough. Avoid comparison like the plague."
"DO NOT WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME GIVING ONE SINGLE CRAP ABOUT WHAT ANYBODY ELSE THINKS OF YOU."
"Read magazines that interest you, talk to as may people as you can, hang out in places where people who share your interests hang out. Put yourself out there and you never know what you might learn that will inform your next move, or whom you might meet that will present you with your next opportunity."
"What if you decided to do the most outrageous, most exciting thing you ever dared fantasize about, regardless of what anyone, including your terrified self, thought? THAT would be living."
You guys, this book is AMAZING! Even though I haven't finished it yet, it has changed my life! I encourage everyone to read it! These quotes are only a smidgen of the greatness inside that book! Be the best person you can be and start taking action!! LIVE YOUR LIFE!
