ATTENTION LADIES. I just completed the book 52 ways to live a kick-ass life and man do I truly believe every women across the world should read it at least ONCE. This book is not only inspiring but shows you ways to go about life differently in order to live your true potential. It will help you grow in all areas of your life.
I believe everyone has a purpose here on earth and it is your job to find it. Most of us get lost on the road to finding our purpose and get stuck living the “mediocre life”. I’d be damned if I ever let myself drift down that path (which I’m sure we all have for a little bit) but the important part is to be able to reevaluate and get back on your path to awesomeness. I believe Andrea Owen does a wonderful job of explaining how to live YOUR kick-ass life. She offers so many tips and tricks, which include new ways of thinking or doing things. In my words, she offers a helping hand full of wisdom in which every girl needs to hear. Her story will leave you broken at first but by the end you will be praising her because damn did she kick some ass during her life. (goal wise lol)
I have taken so many important things out of her book and applied them to my day-to-day life to insure I too can live a KICK-ASS LIFE. So I will now leave you some of the quotes within her book and what they mean to me. But trust me, you don’t want to muss out on this book, such an inspirational read.
- “Don’t let lingering negative feelings about what happened to you in the past limit who you can be in the future”. I took this quote and engraved it on my heart. Don’t let anyone or anything that has happened to you in the past determine your future. It’s so true. So I now leave by the “5 by 5 rule” if it doesn’t matter in 5 years don’t spend more than 5 minutes stressing about it. Leave the past in the PAST.
- “Other people’s negative thoughts about you are simply reflections of themselves”. Ever think like that? If you havent that’s okay, but really think about that quote. I mean come on we all have at least one person who despise us for no reason and guess what, THAT’S FINE. You are not here to make anyone but yourself happy. So let them think what they want, because at the end of the day it only reflects what kind of person they are.
- “Trust that you were meant for and are capable of greatness”. What a deep statement. We all lose trust in ourselves when we fail. We tend to rush into what makes us feel comfortable and get scared to step foot outside of our own bubble again. This is where you must learn to confine in yourself that you are CAPABLE OF GREATNESS. You my friend can have everything and anything on this planet if you can just, trust yourself.
