15 quotes to inspire your Inner badass
The new year is usually for reflections, we look back on the past year, how far we’ve come and the ways we need to improve. We set goals resolutions whichever you prefer to call it but we always have a plan.
The major thing that hit me was how terrible and non-existent my reading habit was last year, seriously the only books I did read were my school books. I barely completed any other book I started; it’s more of a half empty than half full situation if you look at it cos I didn’t even get halfway, so I decide that this year I’m gonna get my mojo back
- You are a badass. You were one when you came screaming onto this planet and you are one now. The Universe wouldn’t have bothered with you otherwise. You can’t screw up so majorly that your badassery disappears. It is who you are. It’s who you always will be. It’s not up for negotiation.
- You are the only you there is and ever will be. Do not deny the world its one and only chance to bask in your brilliance.
- You aren’t a selfish person for taking care of yourself, just a happier one.
- There’s nothing wrong with blushingly accepting a compliment, but if you find yourself always seeking outside approval that you’re good enough or cool enough or talented enough or worthy enough, you’re screwed. Because if you base your self-worth on what everyone else thinks of you, you hand all your power over to other people and become dependent on a source outside of yourself for validation.
- Forgiveness is all about taking care of you, not the person you need to forgive. It’s about putting your desire to feel good before your desire to be right.
- Passion trumps fear
- Our greatest fears are the greatest waste of time.
- The people you surround yourself with are excellent mirrors for who you are and how much, or how little, you love yourself.
- If it’s something you want to do, don’t wait until you’re less busy or richer or “ready” or twenty pounds lighter. Start right now. You’ll never be this young again
- Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
- The only failure is quitting. Everything else is just gathering information.
- It’s about no longer acting like a victim (letting your circumstances control your life) and instead acting like a superhero (creating a life that has you waking up in giddy disbelief that you get to be you).
- Hang out with people who are kicking ass and who will make you feel like a giant loser if you’re not kicking ass, too. I (obviously) can’t stress this enough. Who you surround yourself with greatly affects how you see your world and how high you set the bar for yourself. If you hang out with people who constantly whine about how tired, broke and worried about the economy they are, you’ll feel like a hero just for getting out of bed in the morning. Hang out with people who are living on purpose, who meet their challenges with a step aside, suckers attitude, who are dating super awesome people, making exactly the kind of money they want to be making (or working toward it) or taking the kinds of vacations they, and you, want to be taking, and you’ll not only see what’s possible for you, too, but you’ll have more incentive to follow suit.
- Give yourself the permission and the means (yes, this includes the money), to be who you are REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYBODY ELSE THINKS OR BELIEVES IS POSSIBLE.
- We’re all busy, but it’s the people who make enjoying their lives a priority who, um, enjoy their lives.
