8 Cool Lessons from You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

Published

on

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

10 Main Lessons from Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday

Published

on

Ego is the Enemy, by Ryan Holiday, explains how the Ego leads to failure and how it makes it difficult for individuals to maintain success. Last week, I shared 40 Amazing quotes from the book. Today, I’ll share the main lessons from Ryan Holiday’s amazing book.

1.Too Much Talk About Your Work Depletes You

People love talking too much about their work because they are unaware of the negative effect of excessive talk.

Excessive talking decreases insights and provides a false sense of achievement. It also makes you think you’ve worked hard towards your goals.

2.You Must Adopt a Student Mindset

You must adopt a student’s mindset because there’s so much to learn in your career. You adopt a student mindset by striving to learn from everyone and looking for areas to improve on a daily basis. The student mindset allows you to quickly improve your skills and find better methods of working.

3.Attach Yourself to People Who Achieved Success in Your Field

Associating with people that have succeeded in your field helps to eradicate your ego because it enlightens you that some people are more skilled than you. Besides, you learn a lot from these individuals and quickly achieve success when you work with them. 

4.Practice Self-Control on Your Journey to Success

You must practice self-control when pursuing success because bad things will happen on your journey. For instance, many people will treat you poorly regardless of your socio-economic status, and you’ll be forced to work behind the scenes.

5.The Dangers of Pride

Pride makes you miss opportunities because it prevents you from establishing reliable relationships. Besides, it awakens your negative aspects and eradicates the desire to learn from others.

6.Know What You Want In Life

It’s easier to succeed if you know what you want because this knowledge enables you to avoid distractions. Furthermore, knowing what you want prevents you from desiring what successful people own because you’ll realize that your goal is more important than their possessions.

7.Maintain Your Sobriety When Things Get Better

Maintain sobriety when success starts approaching by avoiding behavior that reinforces the ego. This behavior includes obsessing with your self-image, despising people, desiring better treatment, and over-focusing on your self-anointed importance.

8.Ego Betrays You When Things Get Difficult

Ego prevents you from overcoming difficulty because it focuses on the negative side of difficulties. It also discourages you and provides sensible excuses that prevent you from overcoming difficulty.  As Ryan Holiday puts it, ‘ego says; I knew you couldn’t do it. Why did you ever try? It claims: This isn’t worth. This isn’t fair. This is somebody’s else’s problem. Why don’t you come up with a good excuse and wash your hands of this? It tells us we shouldn’t have to put up with this. It tells us that we’re not the problem.’

9.Choose Alive Time during Failure

During failure, you must choose ‘alive time’ by dedicating every second to improving your skills and using your surroundings to create a better situation.

10.Always Love

Avoid hate because, as Ryan Holiday puts it, ‘it is a cancer that gnaws away at the very vital center of your life and existence.’ Embrace love because it enables you to quickly move on and avoid the distractions associated with investigating the wrongs committed against you.

There are many great lessons from Ego is the Enemy, you must read the book to access them all. Anyway, thanks for reading.

7 Great Lessons From Byways to Blessedness By James Allen

Published

on

Although Byways to Blessedness was written in 1904, the book is still useful today. In the book, James Allen provides advice that enables readers to live a wonderful life. He encourages readers to find happiness by avoiding negative states of mind as they lead to suffering. Also, he enlightens readers on the importance of difficulties and solitude.

Anyway, there are many lessons James Allen provides in the book, but here are the lessons I loved the most.

  1. How You Begin Your Day Matters

How you begin your day matters because it determines how your day will be. Your day will be filled with joy if you begin it wisely and joyfully, and you might have a bad day if you start it with a poor attitude.

  1. How to be Great

If you want to be great, you must sacrifice pride because it prevents you from doing the things that will make you great. Besides this, you must be willing to dedicate all your mind and energy on one thing, and you must avoid focusing on the outcome.

  1. The True Nature of Difficulty

According to James Allen, difficulty exists in the mind, and that’s why a difficult experience for a child might be easy for an adult.

He also teaches that difficulty fosters growth and development because it forces us to exercise our intelligence and awaken our hidden powers.

  1. The Negative Effects of Resentfulness

Resentfulness causes suffering because it prevents you from attaining true enlightenment. Moreover, it hardens your heart and prevents you from receiving the blessings meant for you.

Furthermore, it makes you suffer because it causes a troubled mind and makes you remember the bad things some people did to you.

  1. See No Evil And You’ll Free Yourself From Suffering and Sorrow

According to James Allen, you free yourself from suffering and sorrow when you stop judging people from your viewpoint of what’s right and wrong; when you realize that people have their personal viewpoints which make them do certain things, and that everybody thinks that whatever he or she is doing is necessary for them.

  1. The Secret to Joy

James Allen believes it’s possible to find abiding joy while here on earth because you are responsible for creating joy in your life. He believes you can find joy by being selfless because selfishness results in suffering. He also teaches that you can find joy by avoiding the attachment to things and loving everyone.

  1. The Importance of Solitude

Solitude is necessary for your spiritual life as sleep is necessary for your body. Solitude is so important that lacking it can result in a spiritual break down. It enables you to find the strength, wisdom, and knowledge needed to overcome life’s hardships. Moreover, it enables you to realize your true self and the hidden powers or possibilities within you.
