Being a Muslim I am obliged to pray five times every day. I don’t say I pray regularly. However, whenever I pray I feel a huge sense of motivation, happiness and I get optimistic about my life and goals. It is because I connect with the source of energy. That is what Jen Sincero says in her book ‘You Are A Badass: How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness And Start Living An Awesome Life’. Let’s discuss her own story that she explains in her book.
In 2011, Jen Sincero had only about a month in her hand to write a book and she was still finding an ideal home to stay and write. She was looking for a glass house on a hill in the countryside, surrounded by nature. She did her search but couldn’t find one. At first, she thought that she had to return to her old house (mother’s house) to write the book. One day she thought that…..
How ironic is it that I’m about to sit down and write a book on manifesting your desire and believing it into truth, and I don’t believe I can find a place to write it?
This thought ignited her desire and action to find a place that she desired to write the book against all odds. Sincero sent one last email to her colleagues asking for help finding somewhere to write. Then she tried to manifest it. She imagined she had already found the place. She acted how she would if that were true.
That night she received a mail from a friend who was offering her access to a glass house on a hill about an hour east of San Francisco.
Jen Sincero went on to write the book ‘You Are A Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life’ that sold millions of copies and is translated in close to thirty languages and became a number-one New York Times bestseller.
While manifesting she actually connected to God or whatever you want to call it such as the source of energy.
Ignore the unbelievers and ditch negativity
Have you ever shared your goals and life plans to people you are surrounded by and you heard ‘Impossible’ or ‘it can’t happen’ or ‘nobody has done this’ or ‘you can’t do this’? If yes, then you should ignore them while making sure that you are working hard to turn your goals into reality. Because you are not responsible for what people think about you and your plan. You are responsible for your own.
It is not only Jen Sincero but all the motivational speakers, writers and life and career coaches say that you should ditch negative people in your life. If you can’t you have to pay the huge price for the same- losing your life goals and compromising for less than what you want and deserve in life.
“You are responsible for what you say and do. You are not responsible for whether or not people freak out about it” Jen Sincero
‘Decision‘ can rescue you from unwanted life
If you are not decided for something you will find an excuse for the same. Remind yourself of the time when you promised yourself for starting a side project such as doing freelance work, writing a book, starting a blog or something like that but you never accomplished it. It is because you were not decided. You were not committed to your plan. That is the reason the majority of us fail to acquire a dream job or leave a frustrating job and start something on your own.
Jen Sincero was committed to finding an ideal place to write her book and she found it. If she wasn’t she would have ended up writing the book at her mother’s house that she did not want. Moreover, the book might not have the power to inspire people to go for their life goals.
Whatever you want, you have to be committed to it in order to make it possible.
“So often, we pretend we’ve made a decision when what we’ve really done is signed up to try until it gets too uncomfortable” Jen Sincero
Jen Sincero claims that the book will leave you to inspire and get your plan into action and live the life that you desire. Which is quite true. While and after reading the book I was very inspired. Frankly speaking before reading the book, thought of compromising for the life that I was not happy to live was popping up in my mind. The book really came to rescue me and now I am more inspired and more determined to accomplish my goals.
The book is for those who are not living the desired life and want to change it.
