If you don’t know about Jen Sincero, you should probably go ahead and google everything about her life and achievements. She is one of the most inspiring personalities ever, and personally, I am a big fan, so the bias is obvious.
See, the thing is she used to live in a convertible garage literally. A garage! Yes. Well, she loved living in that garage, that’s a completely different story. But for now, let’s just focus on the fact that Jen turned her life around because now she lives a truly luxurious life, travels around the world pretty often, and does what she loves. Sounds amazing, right?
You are a Badass at Making Money (Review)
Money is a weird thing. Everyone wants it, but nobody likes to accept that they love money. It’s like, people find dignity in ‘not wanting’ money. As if wanting money instantly turns you into this unkind, merciless monster. And I am not even exaggerating, not even a tiny little bit. This is just as true as it can get. We have some messed up ideas about money, and they are so deeply rooted in our subconscious that we don’t even recognize the consequences. I don’t know if you are a believer in the law of attraction or not, but Jen Sincero is, and so am I. Honestly, calling her a believer of the law of attraction will be an understatement.
Jen Sincero is a flag bearer of the law of attraction. Now, there are so many names and alternative theories for the law of attraction. You can pick whichever name or theory that suits your taste. But in her book “You are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth” Jen Sincero uses the word ‘universal intelligence’, and personally, I like the sound of it.
To summarize, the law of attraction is all about attracting experiences through your thoughts. The saying ‘your thoughts become your reality’ is basically an example of the law of attraction. Now, there are a lot of nuances to this law or theory. I am not going to get into all of that, or else this will turn into a thesis, and you aren’t ready for it yet. Kidding! Go ahead and read everything you can find about the law of attraction on the internet, and I can assure you, you will find the entire thing not only pretty fascinating but also so damn believable. Moving on, when you will read about the law of attraction, you will understand that most of the time, when we are thinking positive thoughts to attract positive experiences, we are only doing that on a surface level. That is, on a conscious level we are thinking positive thoughts but subconsciously we are still stuck with our negative thinking which is ruining our entire endeavour at attracting goodness. Therefore, working on our subconscious mind is the key step in achieving our goals.
And Jen Sincero, through her book ‘You are a badass at making money,’ tries to untangle all the messy knots in our subconscious mind. If you want to become rich, earn loads of money, then you have to primarily work on your ideology regarding money. Do you love money, or do you subconsciously detest money because you think money makes humans evil? Society does a fairly impressive job of making us feel guilty for wanting money. We look at rich people and instantly think negatively about their personality and character. We call them ‘lucky’, ‘born-with-a silver-spoon’, ‘arrogant’ etc. Somewhere deep down we think poverty brings you wisdom. But in reality, poverty kills dreams, potential and steals someone’s chance at living a great life.
Through her book, ‘You are a badass at making money’, Jen Sincero breaks all these limiting beliefs and makes you feel like you can truly break free of every limiting factor in your life. It doesn’t matter where you come from; what matters is where you want to be. Keep your eyes focused on your goal; believe that you can achieve it; do not let self-doubt pull you backward, and practice gratitude. The best thing about her book is that it’s not just theoretical. Her book comes with practical lessons, experiments, and stories. In one of the chapters, she has shared all the ways you can overcome your subconscious limiting beliefs. And in my opinion, this one chapter itself is so packed with valuable information that even if you read just this one chunk of the book, you will be good to go. (Don’t listen to me. Please read the entire book. Yikes.)
Jen Sincero has talked a lot about watching our words and vocabulary. Our language has a lot to do with our lifestyle and mindset. Sometimes, we say things casually, but our subconscious ends up absorbing those words because of how frequently we feed it with limiting words or language. Try to remove negative words, phrases, and sentences out of your vocabulary and language, and you will see a significant shift in your mindset. It doesn’t matter how much you are working hard or how much time you are investing in your business or profession. You will not be able to make money you are aiming to, unless and until you believe you can make it without an iota of doubt. The money is out there, and it’s in abundance. The moment you start feeling that you already have that money, you will start attracting it to yourself.
Therefore, just working hard won’t help, start working on your mindset as well. And the best way to correct your money mindset is by reading this fabulous book by Jen Sincero. ‘You are a badass at making money’ will show you your mistakes, and help you grow a limitless money mindset. So, if you want to be a badass at making money, then go ahead and buy this book right now!
