Day 3433 – You Are The Sum Of The Five People You Spend The Most Time Around, I’ll Bet You’re Forgetting One

I am on my way out to purchase Jen Sincero’s new book, You Are a Badass Every Day: How to Keep Your Motivation Strong, Your Vibe High, and Your Quest for Transformation Unstoppable, and it felt like a good day to talk about something that really changed how I look at things.

Y’all know her books have been a BIG deal in my life. I’ve read her book on money mindset, You Are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth* (affiliate link here), four times and every time I get something new. I think she talked about how you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with in her other book, You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life*.

Basically, there’s one person that’s in that sum of five people that you’re forgetting about – YOU. When I first heard this, it blew my mind. It is SO important to take care of ourselves and BE what we want to be.

I’ve taken great steps to ensure I am becoming my best self. From limiting types of media, time on different things, to being patient with myself. I still have a long way to go, but I’m grateful to know that there will always be something to work on in myself, my marriage, my businesses, my life.

Had you realized that you are one of your five before?

Day 3344 – A Book That Has Changed My Money Mindset And My Life – You Are a Badass at Making Money – Read A New Book Month Day 7

I’ve read You Are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth* by Jen Sincero three times as of the writing of this post. I listened to the audiobook each time and I have to say, Jen is a fantastic audiobook reader. To hear the author explain her work is really, really helpful. It doesn’t hurt that she’s absolutely hysterical.

This book helped me to look at money and myself differently. It showed me that SO many more things are possible in my life and that they are within my grasp. This book helped to push me to try my hand at a new blog and caused me to see the value in purchasing a course bundle (which I might add has already made me money).

If you have struggles with how you view money, whether it’s “rich people are gross” or “I can’t afford it” this book will help you to see things in a different light, and begin to look at yourself differently. I have already seen changes in myself, Bret (who has read it twice), and a good friend who is on her second read. This book also reminds me that just one suggestion can change multiple lives. Never negate the power of your words.

Day 3226 – Life-Changing Book – You Are A Bad A$$ At Making Money

I read – a lot. I’m already clocked at 73 books this year, over 17,000 pages, and still going strong. Reading is such an important part of my life. It helps me to learn things that apply to my different jobs, my clients, and just my mindset in general. So for me to say that a book is life-changing is a little bit of a big deal.

These links are Amazon affiliate links. All this means is that if you decide to purchase the books or something else on Amazon, I get a small percentage, and you don’t pay anything extra. I will only ever use affiliate links to books and products I have read and/or use myself. I totally, completely, highly recommend these books.

The book in question is You Are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth by Jen Sincero. This and You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life have been on my To Be Read list for quite some time. I finally got the audiobooks out of the library and listened to both really quickly. She has a way of explaining our mindsets and making comparisons to other things that’s really clear and understandable. Full disclosure, there is language….if that wasn’t apparent from the titles of her books. I recommend the audiobooks because you can hear her inflection and pauses. Haha, and she’s really, really funny.

This book came at a bit of a perfect storm in my life where I had realized – I haven’t been valuing myself in my work (like, it’s embarrassingly bad), I have something to share (secret project I’ll share at some point), I need to make investments in myself and not only be all about investing in our real estate business. For all the books I read, you would think I would have recognized this in myself a lot sooner, but hey, life is about growth and change, amiright?

There was a section in You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life where she talks about the importance of you showing up and doing what you were put on this planet to do. She compared not showing up to your favorite band. How much would it stink if they never went into the studio, never practiced, never wrote any new song? And it just hit me, I have a message to share with people. I have a deep passion for something and by me not sharing that and helping others, they could be missing out on something great.

So, I decided to make a commitment, purchase a course bundle that will help me jumpstart the project, and get started on this new business/dream/project. But then, we were looking into buying a car, putting in an offer on our first house (didn’t get it by the way), and a ton of other financial reasons that said “you shouldn’t do this now!” But I fought my old ways of thinking, and I said you know, if I don’t do this now, I won’t do it. So, I took some time to write out a contract with myself. I listed things I struggle with and how I wouldn’t let them define this new project. And I purchased the course.

And all of this happened because of these books.

What book changed your life?
