In his book, The Path of Prosperity, James Allen focuses on enlightening readers that their inner world determines the conditions of their outer world. He also teaches the secret to success and happiness, why suffering exists, and how to end it.
You must read the book if you are interested in attaining prosperity. Here are key teachings from the book.
- Suffering Leaves When You are Ready To Learn Its Lesson
You remain in suffering because you are never willing to learn its lessons and you don’t understand that suffering is the universe’s way of correcting you. Suffering vanishes when you are eager to learn from it because by doing so, you gain higher wisdom that enables you to overcome it.
- You deserve all your hardships
A universal law is responsible for bringing you all your misfortunes and pains because you deserve them. You need your pains and sorrows so that you understand their purpose, and become wiser, and stronger. For this reason, you must never blame anyone for your hardships.
- Heaven exists in this world
Many people believe that they’ll only live a happy life in a place called heaven after they die. However, Allen teaches that you can also live a happy life in this world because happiness comes from within. He believes the best way to find happiness is to build your inner world by cultivating virtues such as faith, and generosity.
- Natural Disasters are a result of the thoughts that dominate a country
We cannot blame one individual for causing war because disasters such as famines, floods, and wars occur as a result of the collision of poorly-directed thought forces. As James Allen puts it, ‘national events are simply the working out of the psychic forces of a nation.’ Therefore, for a nation to experience peace and avoid national disasters, every citizen must be encouraged to think higher thoughts.
- How To Awaken Your Intuition
To awaken your intuition, you must practice relaxing your mind by constantly thinking peaceful thoughts. This practice will enable you to gain power over your thoughts and desires hence causing a feeling of calmness and strength within you. The feeling will be accompanied by the awakening of your intuitive abilities which will always guide you into the light
- The secret to happiness
Unhappiness arises from self-centeredness, and attachment to material things, and for this reason, the secret to happiness is selflessness, and the detachment from material things. You also find happiness when you help those in need and lose yourself in their sorrows

7 Sensational Lessons from You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero (Part 2)
A few weeks ago, I shared eight cool lessons from this book, and most of you loved them. For this reason, I decided to share seven more sensational lessons I learned from the book.
Hope you enjoy them.
- The Effects of Not Forgiving Others
If you choose not to forgive those who hurt you, you’ll keep remembering what they did hence reliving the pain they inflicted on you. You’ll also succumb to a negative state of mind if you don’t forgive because you’ll relive negative feelings.
- Pause, and Look at Things Differently
We are so wrapped up in our problems, and weaknesses that we fail to see the possibilities and opportunities around us. We are like a trapped bird frantically trying to get out a room through the walls instead of pausing and seeing where the door to freedom is.
- You Are Lying To Yourself If You Are Not Going After Your Dreams
Most people have many excuses for not pursuing their dreams. Some believe they are too late; others claim they are too young, and others think they don’t have enough resources. However, these are lies these folks are using as excuses for not going after their dreams. The main reason, they are not going after what they want is because they are too scared to fail or to get out of their comfort zones.
- If You Must Do A Big Task, Break It Down
If you have a big task, don’t think about how and when you will complete it. Instead, focus on the little steps needed to complete the entire task. For instance, if you want to write a book, focus on writing one page at a time, instead of focusing on when you’ll complete writing the entire book.
‘So don’t try and eat the whole elephant at once, break-it-down into bite-sized bits.’ – Jen Sincero
- Fear Lives in the Future
If you analyze most of your fears, you’ll realize that they exist in the future. You are only afraid when you think about what might happen later. If you focus on the events happening right now, you’ll notice that all your fears haven’t happened yet.
- Make A No-Nonsense Decision About What You Want
It’s easier to overcome obstacles that come on your path if you’ve already decided what you want in life. Making a no-nonsense decision enables you to keep moving even when the going gets tough hence preventing you from giving up. Many people often give up because they haven’t firmly decided what they want in their lives.
- Surrender to the Universe
Stop worrying about the achievement of your dreams, and stop trying to control the future. Instead, work hard, relax mentally, and believe that the universe will fulfill all your desires.
‘When you believe that everything you desire already exists, you are in a natural state of surrender.’ – Jen Sincero

8 Cool Lessons from You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero
In her book, ‘You Are a Badass,’ Jen Sincero provides wonderful guidelines on how to approach life. She reveals the importance of connecting with a Higher Power/God/Source Energy, and she also enlightens readers about the importance of living in the moment and trusting their intuition.
The book is for all dreamers because it encourages readers to take the leap and do whatever they want to do. On Monday’s post, I shared 24 Badass Quotes From the Book. Today I will share 8 cool lessons I learned from it.
- Analyze the Less-impressive Sections of Your Life and Try to Pinpoint the Beliefs that Created Them.
Our beliefs shape our lives. Therefore, if you want to know why you are failing in certain areas of your life, you must pinpoint the beliefs responsible for the failures. For example, you might be performing poorly in all your romantic relationships because you believe that romantic associations are full of shit. Also, you might constantly find yourself lacking money because you believe that you were not meant to be rich.
- There is a Higher Power/God, and You Can Call it The Way You Want
In the book, Jen Sincero writes that she used to think that believing in the existence of a Higher Power is silly. However, she realized that awesome shit started happening in her life when she gave the Power a try. It also dawned on her that it doesn’t matter how you call this power. What matters most is your relationship with it.
- Why You Must Live in the Present Moment
You must practice living in the present moment because, according to Jen Sincero, living in the present unites you with Vortex/God hence raising your frequency. A higher frequency enables you to attract higher-frequency experiences such as abundance, joy, laughter, and bliss.
- You Have a Shadow Self and a True Self
Your shadow self, the Ego, is guided by your limiting beliefs, and it either lives in the past or future. Besides this, it fails to realize that you are connected to your surroundings, and it loves praise and validation.
Conversely, your true self is always in alignment with God/Spirit, and it often strives to attract a reality that matches your true potential.
- Trust Your Intuition
Always trust your intuition because your intuition is your inner guidance that has all the answers you need. Stop taking people’s advice and rely on your intuition when making decisions or taking action.
- Why You Must Meditate
Meditation enables you to fall in alignment with Source Energy/Universal Energy. This alignment strengthens your intuition, relaxes you, puts you in a good mood, raises your frequency, and brings you in the present moment.
- The Importance of Gratitude
According to Jen Sincero, you must practice gratitude because it moves you nearer to the Source Energy/God and makes it easy for you to manifest the things you want. Besides this, you must practice gratitude because when in gratitude, you release positive energy which comes back to you.
- How to Practice Gratitude
The best way to be thankful for everything is to practice seeing the positive side of everything that happens. Always find reasons to make every occurrence a good one. For example, if you lose your job don’t focus on how life might be hard without a salary. Instead, realize that being jobless will allow you to go after what you truly want in life.
