Another Book Review

Okay, I’ve been lagging on book reviews but I’m back!

I’m late, I know, but I recently read the book, You Are A Badass, By Jen Sincero. Wow. Easily made it to my top 5 best books I’ve ever read.


It’s another law of attraction book, but the way the author writes, it almost seems like she’s just speaking directly to you, as a friend. For those of you that don’t particularly enjoy reading, this is a book you will enjoy. Jen Sincero has a way of putting things into simple terms which is helpful.

One main part that stood out to me:

Meanwhile, the truth is, 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 (not should go)?”

WOW. this was mind blowing to me.

For so long I’ve struggled with choosing which path to take. For example, wanting to be a writer, I quit so many jobs because they weren’t fulfilling, only to apply for another unfulfilled job. I realized around the time I was writing my book that this is a cycle that’s going to continue. Unless, I stop getting jobs just for the sake of a job, and start looking for jobs within my desired field.

So when I read that part in the book, it hit me. This is what I should have been asking myself and it would have saved me so much time. When I started looking for more writing opportunities, I even decided not to apply for some because it wasn’t “going to take me in the direction I want to go” I want to be a writer, yes, but now moving forward, I want to make sure that I manifest specifics. For example, writing about politics is something that I’m NOT interested in and it’s not the type of writer I want to end up as. However, a writer of let’s say, spirituality or self help, poetry would be something I’d apply for because it would ultimately lead me in the direction I want to be in. Make sense?

– Don’t go to nursing school because your family wants you to, do you want to?

– Don’t apply for a job working for a veterinarian if you don’t like animals.

– Don’t get a SUV because the salesman tells you it’s a great car when deep down you want a sporty car!

Moving forward, ask yourself these two questions when making a decision. See how it changes things.

December book recommendation

I haven’t been reading as many book as I’d like to!

However, I read one book that changed my perspective on life and my mindset.

Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker

This book truly opened my eyes to how the mind and finances work. If you are an entrepreneur or anyone who’s wanting to change your current finances / the way you handle money, this book is for you!

I learned some important tricks while reading and it really makes you think about how and why your current finances are the way the are. Eker does a great job at putting things into simple terms so it just clicks.

This book changed the way I look at certain individuals as well as motivated me!

Read it, you won’t regret it!
