Get The Book: You Are a Badass at Making Money
Normally, I wouldn't tell you to go get a book until I have finished reading it. I certainly wouldn't tell you to go get it when I've just gotten to Chapter 2, but this book is different. Very different. Different in a good way.
First, a disclaimer. I'm not a woo person. I don't believe in a higher power. I don't believe in the traditional ideas of "the law of attraction". No healing energy, mystical stuff happening over here. That said. I'm willing to let go of all of that just to see what happens. This goes against my very grain, but I'm doing it because, why not. Seriously. Nothing bad will happen if I try out new weird woo concepts.
Money. It's a hard topic to talk about. In fact, you aren't supposed to. Which is ridiculous because how are you supposed to LEARN about it if no one is TALKING about it. I grew up in a don't talk about it family with a lot of beliefs about rich people being bad. Seriously. My parents gave their lives to teaching and being a librarian - low paying jobs that better society. Anyone who did differently was obviously a greedy scumbag. I'm just telling you so you know where it came from. With that upbringing there was no surprise that they never talked about money options, how to make money, save money, invest money, deal with money - just silence.
So. Come to today and the You Are a Badass at Making Money book's Chapter 2 where Jen Sincero wants you to get in touch with your money beliefs. I'm shocked at the cray cray things I believe about money. I'm making myself work through two of my beliefs every morning and the weirdest thing is happening. I feel lighter, less anxious, less sleepy - just good. I want to get up at 5AM and slog through my crazy money beliefs and slay them like they are dragons. This from someone who really didn't even want to talk about money.
So, It's only Chapter 2, but go get the book. If you, like me, need to get to the heart of your money issues this might help. Heck, it can't hurt.
I'm chronicling my reading of the book on Instagram and let's just say that it gets real.
