There aren’t many books I listen to repeatedly on Audible. When I do, they are often books about habits and office organization. Sometimes, though, I need a much more inspirational message. One that isn’t just for my work life, but my whole life.
You Are a Badass – How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero is a book a return to again and again.
What they don’t tell you about being a freelancer is that it’s incredibly hard to stay engaged and motivated day after day. Every. Single. Day. You are on, productive, driven, happy, sad, overwhelmed, tired and uninspired. You can shift from the motivated morning to a burnt out afternoon in a few short hours. Staying on purpose and believing in yourself and what you do is the secret sauce for staying in business. We all need a little help every now and then.
You Are A Badass helps you love yourself, find your purpose in life and stop worrying about the how and trust that the universe will deliver more happiness than you could ever imagine.
And the author is funny. I highly recommend the Audible version. She’s entertaining and inspiring.
It’s okay to lose your spark for web design every now and then. Just make sure you have a tool to get you back in the groove and believe in yourself again.
