Title: You are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth
Author: Jen Sincero
Genre: Personal Development, Wealth, Personal Finance, Non-Fiction
What It’s About: Many people have the mindset that wealthy=bad, and that struggling to earn money and working harder for money is the right and noble way to finance. But what if there was another way?
What if…all you had to do was ask the universe out there, put your intentions out to being known and believe with all your soul that the money that you desire–the wealth that you want–is all on its way?
What if being wealthy did not necessarily mean bad, but rather, it meant a higher standard of living?
Wealth is an energy, and the universe works through energetic means. If you don’t have money, it’s because you are blocking the money due to fear–whether that fear is a result of success, or of a fear of not having enough or being able to make enough money for what you want to achieve–you need to shift your mindset into abundance. You are capable, and smart, so you can be wealthy if you get your mind out of the trash can with how bad life is, and all the if-only’s.
Believe you are worthy, ask the universe for the money, trust it with all of your soul and wait for it to deliver, so long as you work for it.
My Thoughts: This was a very interesting interesting book, just like the other one by Jen Sincero, because of the fact that she has such a funny way of writing. There’s a lot of sass, a lot of cursing and a lot of talk about surrendering, believing, and accepting as well as being grateful.
What I loved about this book is that it puts you in a positive mindset about everything. I know it certainly made me feel like there is enough to go around, and by cultivating this positive mindset, I felt like it made things a lot easier to deal with. Having a positive mindset or outlook doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t have a bad day or be thrown off balance–more than anything it means that just accepting things as they are and trusting in yourself and the path you’ve chosen for yourself, that ultimately things will work out.
That said, this book is not magic. It is funny, it makes you laugh, and it makes you realize that having a positive mindset helps a lot, but it by no means stop doing what you’re doing. Don’t just ask the universe for something and sit back. Ask for something and do things to make it happen. Go after it the way you would after something you’re passionate about.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and I would definitely read it again when I have a need for a reminder.
