Ok, so this book (You are a Badass by Jen Sincero) took me way longer to read then normal.
I am so used to picking up a book and honestly, just devouring it. This is why a book that takes me 3 weeks to complete (and is way smaller than the complete works of William Shakespeare) it catches me off guard it usually means that...
- The book is boring as all get out
- My schedule is insane (or I am sick) and I just have no energy left to read in bed
- Something in the book is challenging me in a new way and I need more time to digest it
This book definately fell in category #3 for me.
There was just so much to think about, to consider, and to have to take a deep breath and admit...dang it, she's totally right! (but more on that later - once I digest a little more)
Today I wanted to share this quote. Why? Not because I sit firmly on one side or the other of the fence of Manifestation, but, instead because I believe that a positive mindset and belief in yourself is important if you want to achieve anything in your life. I also believe that you cannot sit back and wait for the universe to do everything for you. You need to believe, to put the intention out there, and then show the universe (...Soul, God or whoever you believe will help you achieve it) that you are willing to put in the work too.
As Leonardo Divinci says in Ever After...
You cannot leave everything to Fate, boy. She's got a lot to do. Sometimes you must give her a hand.
What are you working towards? How is it going?
