I’m not normally one for self-help books because they usually have the “pull yourself up by your boot straps” mentality and forget that important things cost a lot of money. I’m all for working hard and figuring out where I can save more and spend less… but especially with prices going up for everything, it isn’t fair to say someone should just save more money. However, I’m also always looking for new inspiration when it comes to my business so when I came across this book last year, I immediately fell in love.
I will warn you ahead of time, there is a little “just manifest the money and it’ll come to you”. (And I’m not ruling out a little of that working. The mind IS very powerful. I’m just not sure it can conjure up thousands of dollars out of nowhere.) But if you enjoy quotes and inspirational one-liners, this book is for you. This book may not fix your life, but it might just encourage you to try something new that will. I’ll share a couple of my favorite quotes:
“𝐹𝓇𝑜𝓂 𝓉𝒽𝑒 𝓂𝑜𝓂𝑒𝓃𝓉 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝒸𝑜𝓊𝓁𝒹 𝓉𝒶𝓀𝑒 𝒾𝓉 𝒾𝓃, 𝓉𝒽𝑒𝓎 𝓈𝓉𝒶𝓇𝓉𝑒𝒹 𝒻𝒾𝓁𝓁𝒾𝓃𝑔 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝓊𝓅 𝓌𝒾𝓉𝒽 𝒶 𝓁𝒾𝒻𝑒𝓉𝒾𝓂𝑒’𝓈 𝓌𝑜𝓇𝓉𝒽 𝑜𝒻 𝒷𝑒𝓁𝒾𝑒𝒻𝓈, 𝓂𝒶𝓃𝓎 𝑜𝒻 𝓌𝒽𝒾𝒸𝒽 𝒽𝒶𝓋𝑒 𝓃𝑜𝓉𝒽𝒾𝓃𝑔 𝓉𝑜 𝒹𝑜 𝓌𝒾𝓉𝒽 𝓌𝒽𝑜 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝒶𝒸𝓉𝓊𝒶𝓁𝓁𝓎 𝒶𝓇𝑒 𝑜𝓇 𝓌𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝒾𝓈 𝓃𝑒𝒸𝑒𝓈𝓈𝒶𝓇𝒾𝓁𝓎 𝓉𝓇𝓊𝑒.”

“𝒴𝑜𝓊𝓇 𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓁𝒾𝓉𝓎 𝒾𝓈 𝒸𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓉𝑒𝒹 𝒷𝓎 𝓌𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝒻𝑜𝒸𝓊𝓈 𝑜𝓃 𝒶𝓃𝒹 𝒽𝑜𝓌 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝒸𝒽𝑜𝑜𝓈𝑒 𝓉𝑜 𝒾𝓃𝓉𝑒𝓇𝓅𝓇𝑒𝓉 𝒾𝓉.”
If you’re looking for a new way to look at your life and potential business, I really recommend this book. When I felt low-energy, I would read it on a walk and get some motivation to do anything I needed to do. And now I’m about to send it to one of my best friends so she can have some extra motivation!
