awesome life

You Are A Badass, by Jen Sincero


“If you want to live a life you’ve never lived, you have to do things you’ve never done” (pg 15).

“We’re all busy, but it’s the people who make enjoying their lives a priority who, um, enjoy their lives” (pg 57).

“The only questions you ever need to consider when making decisions about your life are:

  1. Is this something I want to be, do, or have?

  2. Is this going to take me in the direction I want to go?

  3. Is this going to screw over anybody else in the process (pg 64)?

“There’s no better way to fall prey to outside input than when you’re feeling insecure. And there’s no better way to feel insecure than knowing you half-assed something or don’t really believe in what you’re doing. No matter what it is - raising your prices or raising your children - if you do the absolute best you possible can, and come from a place of integrity, then you can be proud of yourself and not give a damn about what anyone else thinks” (pg 68).

“The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure” (pg 71).

“When we share what were brought here to give, we are in alignment with our highest, most powerful selves” (pg 72).

“It’s through our thoughts that we create our realities . . . your thoughts and beliefs dictate your reality, so if you want to change your reality, you ahve to change your beliefs.” (pg 93, 94).

“If you wanna stay stuck in the same place and keep getting spanked with the same lessons over and over, be negative, resentful, and victimized. If you want to get over your issues and rock your life, be grateful, look for the good and learn . . . write your thank-you notes!” (pg 120).

“Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past” - Lily Tomlin

“Sometimes the road to freedom lies in deciding you’d rather be happy than right” (pg 125).

“What you choose to focus on becomes your reality” (pg 137).

“If you’re serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way. If you’re not, you’ll find an excuse” (pg 153).

“We tiptoe through life trying to safely make it to death” - unknnown

When successful people were asked the secret to their success, the overwhelming majority answer: tenacity (pg 199).
