You Are A Badass
I decided to put this to the test. We were trying to sell our house that was a bad decision to buy in the first place. We had about 25 showings in just over a month. We had turned down a low offer that we got from the second showing in hopes that we would get a better offer. More that 20 showings later and still no better offer. Then we had a week of no showings and we were getting really discouraged. This is when I read You Are A Bad Ass. Instead of passively waiting for a good offer, I started telling myself that we would get more showings and the offer would come. I kept packing and cleaning. In a few days we got a call that a showing was scheduled for the afternoon. All morning as I was cleaning and preparing, I kept telling myself, my kids, my husband, and even my dogs that this was it. They would love the house and they would make a strong offer.
Then It Happened
They still might have loved the house despite my positive attitude about it. Even if it is a huge coincidence, it is very gratifying to think that just by being positive, I was able to accomplish something great. This has lit a fire in me that I’m not sure has ever been there. I’ve never been an overly negative person but I’m definitely guilty of doubting myself and procrastinating. I want to be my best self for me, my husband and my boys. I want to be a badass.
Another Badass Experience
Now I Know
Each time I finish another self help book, I feel like I have uncovered a new secret way of living. I definitely felt that way when I finished You Are A Badass. It’s like Jen has revealed to me that the quiet, reserved girl I’ve always been, isn’t who I have to be forever. I have also realized the power of the mind and positivity. Living life positively and appreciatively isn’t just a fairytale. I have big goals and dreams. For the first time in my life I’m not just hoping they will happen, I’m committing to make them happen. I am a BADASS, and it’s about time I started living like it!
