Why I choose this book:
I have been following Marie Forleo for 9 months from today. And between her B school, Copy Cure and Marie TV loving her ideas, thoughts and how she looks at life. As it is similar to how I look at my life.
Book theme/ message:
Everything is Figureoutable. Yup everything with 3 rules.
First Rule – All problems (or dreams) are figureoutable
Second Rule – If a problem is not figureoutable, it’s not really a problem- it’s a fact of life or law of nature (e.g. death or gravity)
Third Rule – You may not care enough to figure this problem out or achieve this particular dream. That’s oaky. Find another problem or dream that ignites a blazing fire in your hear and go back to Rule 1.
I find solutions all the time and I love it. It’s a game for me. I was curious when I heard the book title. And now I read it, man I am happy to have bought it.
How does the book relate to me to me or my experiences?
Including my highlights passages and or quote.
The book goes through a step by step actionable process to break down old beliefs and create new ones. Also it tells you to take actions, to create momentum in which ever project your are working on.
First step – repeat to yourself: Everything is Figureoutable. just do it.
To succeed you need a few things: 1- train your brain for growth 2- try it before you deny it 3- do the work! yup, you need to make it happen 4- connect with you community, people who will support you
In order to make thing s happen you need to believe, that’s the third step.
Fourthly – Eliminate excuses
If it’s important enough, you’ll make time.If not, you’ll make an excuse
“There are two kinds of people in the world:those with reasons and those with results”
Which one do you want to be?
Fifth – How to deal with the fear of anything – Fear is your soul’s GPS. Ask yourself: “What else could this mean?”
Next you want to define your dream, yup. You need to know what you want.
This one is scary – start before you are ready. Why? because you will never feel like you are ready. Therefore if you wait to be ready, you’ll never start.
Remember progress not perfection
And always refuse to be refused
All of this because: the world need your special gift that you only have. You are unique, there is no one else like you in this world. Share what you know
