You Are A Badass of Making Money by Jen Sincero is a great book that motivates you to increasing your income.
Below are some great quotes from the book. Enjoy.
I’m going to give you the top 3. Money is the root of all evil. People really think it’s an evil, dirty, bad thing. They think they’ll have to do something they hate to make money. They’ll have to work themselves to the bone doing stuff they hate. The biggest one is that they don’t think they’re allowed to make money. They haven’t given themselves permission to make money. You can tell people how to invest and how to work with money, but if they haven’t gotten over the part of yourself that isn’t allowing yourself to go for it, it’s such a loaded topic…to go out and say “I’m gonna make a ton of money,” people will look at you funny. It’s not okay in our society.
We use money every single day of our lives. Certainly people do horrible things to make money. We see it all the time: the power-mongering and the horror that happens because people are greedy and out of balance. But everyday we experience awesome things that happen because of money. We use it everyday to enhance our lives, yet we always seem to focus on the negative about it. We do live in a fear based society. We get all the messaging from our parents and society that say ‘you gotta work hard and that it’s no fun.’ It’s been passed down for quite a while, but I don’t what cave person decided that money was bad.
Money is here for us to enjoy and if you save all of it, it’s spent before you’ve even made it, which is so fun free. In order to go make money, you have to have energy. You need excitement and emotion around it. If the second it comes in, it just goes in your savings account, you’re not going to have that energy to make more. Decide what’s really, really important to you and exciting for you to spend money on and let yourself have it. .. while you save. It’ll raise your frequency around money. It’ll make you excited to bring money in. That’s what you need.

“All life is either moving forward and evolving or shrinking back and dying. If you want to evolve in your own life, you have to push through the obstacles instead of running from them. Obstacles and challenges are the agents of growth. Nobody gets to be large and in charge without facing challenges and moving through them. Birth is messy, painful, scary, uncertain, and freaky. Birth is also a glorious miracle that leads to new life. If you want the new life you say you want, you have to do the work instead of just studying and discussing and wishing and wanting.” ~ Jen Sincero
