Lately I've been immersing myself into reading different kinds of books. One of my latest reads is #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso. I know this book has been out for a few years but jumping on the bandwagon never felt better! Sophia shares her rags to riches story about how she created her business from the ground up. I wont lie, after reading this book you can help but want to go create your own business or something! Sophia tips on how to kill it in the workplace and how to be nice while kicking ass :) Here are some of my favorite #GIRLBOSS quotes from the book:
“No matter where you are in life, you'll save a lot of time by not worrying too much about what other people think about you. The earlier in your life that you can learn that, the easier the rest of it will be.”
“Abandon anything about your life and habits that might be holding you back. Learn to create your own opportunities. Know that there is no finish line; fortune favors action. Race balls-out toward the extraordinary life that you’ve always dreamed of, or still haven’t had time to dream up. And prepare to have a hell of a lot of fun along the way.”
“The energy you’ll expend focusing on someone else’s life is better spent working on your own. Just be your own idol.”
“While I truly believe that you must have intentions to fulfill your dreams, I also think you have to leave room for the universe to have its way and play around a bit. Don’t get so focused on one particular opportunity that you’re blind to other ones that come up. If you think about one thing, and talk about it all the time, you’re being too obsessive. You might ruin it. If you let yourself meander a bit, then the right things and the right people fall into place. Some things are worth fighting for—don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a fighter—but I really think that what is right should be easy. My dad has always said that the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, and it’s so true.”
“If you’re frustrated because you’re not getting what you want, stop for a second: Have you actually flat-out asked for it? If you haven’t, stop complaining. You can’t expect the world to read your mind. You have to put it out there, and sometimes putting it out there is as simple as just saying, “Hey, can I have that?”
Yeah basically Sophia is a genius! Definitely check out her book NOW! If you've read Girl Boss before, what did you love about it?
