I'm Officially A Bad Ass

I’m officially a Badass!
So recently I read You are a BADASS: How to STOP Doubting your Greatness and Start Living An Awesome Life by Jen Sincero...and let me just say...LIFE CHANGING BOOK. Like it sounds simple but Jen Sincero has this way of shaking you out of your rut with her straight forward convictions. It almost felt so personal. I would be sitting there reading the book, mouth wide open as if someone had just read me my rights (telling me about myself...for y’all who don’t know the lingo) in public.
She gave amazing tips on how to manifest the life that I wanted to start living. There were so many parts of the book that I wanted to highlight, whole pages would have been neon colored. Since the copy that I had was borrowed I had to settle for taking notes. Which I didn’t mind too much, it just took a little longer because I’m a reader that likes to annotate.
I’m not even going to give you guys cliff notes on the book because I really need you to read it. You can apply this book to any phase of life that you are currently in, career, love, family matters, ANYTHING. Read it, use it, love it.
One chapter in the book called “Money, Your New Best Friend” has a quote that I live by all the time it goes, “ I worked for a menial’s hire, Only to learn, dismayed, That any wage I asked of Life, Life would have willingly paid.” That quote was from Jessie B. Rittenhouse.
I love it! It’s so true when you ask and move like it’s already done then it will be. Manifesting is real you guys, whatever you want out of life you can have all you have to do is ask, move, believe and wait.
Another chapter I loved was the one about the loin cloth man. I’ll give a brief story because once again, I want you to READ THE BOOK! Any who, Jen and a friend are on their annual camping/hiking trip and they run into the guy in a loincloth. She tells us his story of how he decided to quit society and basically live a carefree lifestyle in the woods. Like this man was literally eating squirrels and shit...insane. But the moral of that story is that he chose that life, it is what he wanted.
My message to you is to start living the way you want, as long as you aren’t knocking over grannies and kicking puppies do WTF you want. Go back to school, don’t go back to school. Start that business or quit that job, DO WHAT YOU WANT. Your heart will thank you.
