Author Jen Sincero really hits her Badass stride with her follow-up to her first book, You Are a Badass. This volume, You Are a Badass at Making Money, is specifically about attracting wealth into your life. It requires a healthy mindset shift.
Those who don’t believe that your thinking guides your life will have a hard time with this. For me, she speaks my language. Change your thinking, change your life!
Sincero leads the reader on a journey to create a new, healthier relationship with money. Each chapter has a list of activities the reader will use to explore misperceptions of money and understand how to attract it rather than repel it.
It’s like couples therapy for you and your wallet.
We often send money mixed messages like a bad boyfriend. Guess what? Just like in any relationship, honesty and a willingness to state what you want directly and plainly is paramount to its success. You want to be rich? Admit you love money! It’s okay. If you think that’s an embarrassing or sinful statement, then you have some work to do. Currency is saying to you right now, “It’s not me, it’s you.” It’s also saying, “Don’t give up on us, baby!” Reconciliation is a beautiful thing.
By the end you will be repeating your own money mantra.
I borrowed Louise Hay’s many years ago: I am a money magnet!
But now I say, “I have more money than I can spend, and I have time to spend it.”
Truthfully, I had to add the second part about time to spend it. When I first proclaimed that I have more money than I can spend, I got more business than I could handle. Meaning, I had no time to enjoy any of the freedoms or options that money afforded me. I have more that I use to remind myself of my committed relationship when I start to doubt.
Affirmations aren’t wishes
Here’s the thing with affirmations and mindsets, you still have to do the work. It’s not a wish, it’s a swish! You have to swish into a new lane of thinking, a new mindset. Did your mother ever tell you that when you set your mind to something, you can do it? She was right. Set your mind and then do it! The behavior naturally follows the thought.
