When it comes to living an awesome life, what’s stopping you? According to Jen Sincero, a success coach who a has helped countless people transform their personal and professional lives, we’re being controlled by the inner beliefs of our subconscious minds that’s limiting our full potential. We are all connected to an unlimited potential but unfortunately we’re only using a fraction of it. Throughout the book, Jen guides the readers on ways to tap into that potential to unleash the awesomeness and uniqueness that we bring to this world. Points taken away:
1. I’ve read and heard countless times that if you want to live a life that you want, you need to act accordingly. Through your actions you send out signals and messages to the world that you’re now living in that world you believe in. If you live in scarcity, that’s all you’ll get. However, if you start living a life of abundance, the universe will see that and respond accordingly. “In order to truly raise your vibration, you’ve got to believe that everything you want is available to you. And the best way to keep this belief strong is by staying connected to Source Energy. It’s like we’re surrounded by this big, all-you-can-eat-buffet of incredible experiences and insights and feelings and opportunities and things and people and ways to share our gifts with the world, and all we have to do is align our energy with what we want and take decisive action to allow this good into our lives. And this decisive action part is key.“
2. For those of you who put yourself down, stop it. Putting yourself down just creates this negativity that no one wants to be around. If you want to live an awesome life, your attitude first needs to change. “Incessant self-deprecating humor is for losers. I get it-it can be hilariously funny and I’m totally guilty of it from time to time and there’s nobody I’d more enjoy backing over with my car than the guy who can’t laugh at himself, but I’m talking about the nonstop, self-flagellating, I Suckfest. Ripping on yourself gets old. Fast. Especially if it’s your shtick. So if you’re one of those people who falls back on making fun of yourself, every hour on the hour, not only are you basically begging people to think you’re a loser, but you’re begging yourself to think you’re a loser. It’s like hitting yourself over and over with a crowbar.“
3. Focus on yourself. Life should be about a competition with yourself and no one else. You should be competing with who you were yesterday, last week, last month, last year. If you cancelled out that noise and just focused on yourself, you’ll not only be happier, but also achieve a more awesome life. “It’s none of your business what other people are doing. All that matters is that you’re enjoying yourself and pleased with what you’re creating. It’s precisely your uniqueness that makes you awesome – deciding that someone else’s uniqueness is better than your own isn’t exactly being your own best buddy about things.”
4. Frame all of your non positive events into positive events. In the book The Happiness Advantage, the author states that by looking out for the positives in your life you’re essentially training your brain to focus on the positive events and will thus live a happier life. “Whenever anything excellent or mediocre or lame or annoying happens to you, meet it with the statement, ‘This is good because…’ and fill in the blank. Once you make this a regular practice, you’ll see how much easier it is to be in gratitude for much more than you realized.”
