Summary: You’re a Badass by Jen Sincero

wEnable people instead of helping them.

Helping people hold them back from reaching their true potential.

Holding onto resentment is like taking poison and hoping for my enemy to die.

When we’re in physical pain, we’re usually very reactive about figuring out how to make it go away immediately.

Don’t fall prey to the belief that if I forgive someone, I’m not letting them off the hook. I’m letting myself off the hook.

Go from I WANT to change my life to I DECIDE to change my life.

We have two brains; conscious and subconscious.

We think our conscious mind is in control, but it’s not.

Our subconscious mind doesn’t think about anything but it’s in control. It contains blueprint for our lives. It contains unfiltered information when we were kinds, otherwise known as our beliefs.

It’s just as easy to believe we’re awesome as it is to believe we suck.

We’re born knowing how to trust our instincts. how to breathe deeply. how to eat only when we’re hungry. how to play, create love without holding back, then as we grow and learn from people around us, we replace many of these primal understandings with negative false beliefs, fear, shame and self-doubt.

Our thoughts become our words.

Words become beliefs.

Beliefs become actions.

Actions become habits.

Habits become realities.

You’re responsible for what you say or do, but you’re not responsible for whether or not people freak out about it.

When it comes to our emotional pain however, we tend to stay in the game much longer, dwell on our guilt, shame, resent and self-loathing, sometimes for entire lifetimes.

Would you rather be happy or right?

In order to kick ass, you must first lift your foot.

Done is better than perfect. Start right now you’ll never be this young again.

Don’t fall prey to Crab effect

If you put a bunch of crabs in a bowl and one of them tries to climb out, the rest will try to drag him down instead of helping to push him out. This is what happens when we share fear and doubt with each other.

Fear itself is all made up.

Because it hasn’t even happened yet. Most of the time, we have no guarantee that the fear is even going to happen.

The things that bother us about some people bother us because they remind us something we don’t like about ourselves.

And remember success consists of going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm. So hang in there, believe you have what it takes and you’re gonna make it!
