30 Quotes from Badass Habits by Jen Sincero
Contrary to popular belief, habits are more about who you’re being than what you’re doing.
In every moment, you have the profound ability to make choices that will completely change your habits and your reality, either right away or over time.
There are three little words that all humans long to hear more than any others: You. Are. Right.
Our “realities” are determined by how we habitually perceive ourselves and our worlds.
Habits define who you’re being at a certain moment in time; they’re not who you are.
Trying to change your life without being self-aware is like using a map to try to get somewhere you’ve never been before: If you don’t know where you’re starting from, you ain’t gonna get very far.
Habitually setting good boundaries lays the groundwork for all other habits.
Your habits define who you’re being. Your boundaries define the space you require in order to be who you’re being.
What we choose to believe is true or not true dictates the boundaries we do or don’t set.
Good, clear boundaries are a gift to everyone. Resentment, exhaustion, guilt, obligation, and passive-aggressiveness are gifts to no one.
The people closest to you have the most to lose by losing you, so they are the most resistant to you changing.
Changing your habits and your boundaries takes courage, audacity, and a whole lot of self-love.
When you say no to the needs of others, you’re being nice to yourself, not mean to them.
What you make fun of most, you become. Mock wisely.
Commit to change and conviction will follow.
Perfectionism is just procrastination in a fancy outfit.
When you change who you’re being, you begin seeing everything through new eyes: You suddenly notice awesome parts of yourself that you never gave much credit to, and you realize that you’re one mighty motherfucker.
Trust that the Universe always delivers right on time.
You will experience whatever you believe. And you will believe whatever you repeatedly tell yourself is true.
The more you hang out in the energy of that which you desire, the more effortlessly you will attract it to you.
We are enormously influenced by who and what we surround ourselves with; our environment can make or break us faster than almost anything.
The more you appreciate yourself, the more likely you are to stick to habits that are good for you and lose the ones that aren’t.
All the little moments in our lives add up to the whole of who we are.
You can literally accomplish anything you set your mind to. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve messed up, because your failures and face-plants are all part of your journey.
Any fears, doubts, or worries you have about yourself and your fabulousness were learned from the people around you and from your own temporary failures. They are not the truth.
Gratitude isn’t about denying your difficult feelings; it’s about not being a prisoner to them.
Get out of the way and into the flow.
Success favors the stubborn.
Forming good habits isn’t about being perfect; it’s about being more of who you are.
Give yourself the permission to be, to do, and to have whatever lights up your heart and practice forgiving your screwups along the way. Loving your whole self is simply a habit, a habit that’s definitely worth having.
