10 quotes to live by from the book that teaches us how to be a badass.

You Are a Badass  was on my reading list for several months before I finally picked it up. When I did, though, I couldn’t believe I sat on this book for so long. I really loved Jen Sincero’s approach to gratitude, embracing the frequencies of the universe, and moving past what holds us back.

I found myself highlighting and taking notes while I read, and nodding and agreeing as I made my way through the book. I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes and moments from the book with you.


1. “Our thoughts become our words, our words become our beliefs, our beliefs become our actions, our actions become our habits, and our habits become our realities.” (page 60)

2. “Nobody who ever accomplished anything big of new or worth raising a celebratory first in the air did it from their comfort zone.” (page 65)

3. “Your reality is created by what you focus on and how you chose to interpret it.” (page 177)

4. “When you love yourself enough to stand in your truth no matter what the cost, everyone benefits.” (page 182)

5. “Trade in your drama about how you can’t have what you want for the grateful expectation that miracles will walk into your life, and the more commonplace those miracles will become.” (page 118-119)

6. “No matter how clueless you may feel right now, pay attention to suggestions and opportunties that suddenly present themselves… Take the first step in the direction toward something that feels right and see where it leads you. And do it NOW.” (page 75-76)

7. “Having a good attitude and being grateful for all the things that are helping you live the life of your dreams will not only make your life a more pleasant place to be, and get you bigger tips, but it will also raise your frequency and attract the people and opportunities to you that will take you in the direction you want to go.” (page 76)

8. “On the other side of your fear is freedom.” (page 171)

9. “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

10. “Love yourself.”
