What are the big ideas?

  1. The Power of "Why Not?": This book encourages readers to embrace new opportunities without overthinking or putting undue pressure on themselves, which sets it apart from other self-help literature that often emphasizes careful planning and deliberation. By focusing on the potential benefits and possibilities rather than the risks and challenges, the book offers a unique perspective on personal growth and development.
  2. The Importance of Smothering and Taking in a Positive Light: While most self-help books caution against smothering or taking things from others, this book presents these actions in a positive light as expressions of love and generosity. By emphasizing the importance of giving and receiving in relationships and recognizing that they are interconnected, the book offers a refreshing perspective on building strong connections with others.
  3. The Power of Gratitude as a Catalyst for Abundance: While gratitude is a common theme in self-help literature, this book emphasizes its role in raising one's frequency and manifesting positive experiences. By offering practical strategies like writing down things you're grateful for daily and focusing on the positive aspects of situations, the book provides unique insights into harnessing the power of gratitude to attract abundance into your life.
  4. Forgiveness as a Pathway to Freedom: This book offers a fresh perspective on forgiveness by emphasizing the importance of understanding the motivations and actions of those who have wronged us, rather than focusing solely on our own reactions. By encouraging readers to release attachments to resentment and focus on their own growth, the book provides a unique approach to forgiveness that can lead to greater happiness and fulfillment.
  5. The Power of Self-Love as a Foundation for Personal Growth: While self-love is a common theme in personal growth literature, this book emphasizes its importance as a prerequisite for all other aspects of personal development. By encouraging readers to prioritize self-care and self-acceptance, the book offers a unique perspective on building a strong foundation for growth and transformation. Additionally, the book emphasizes the connection between self-love and generosity towards others, offering a holistic approach to personal growth that benefits both the individual and their relationships.

Chapter Summaries



  • The author used to dismiss quotes about changing one's life and found the self-help/spiritual world cheesy and unappealing.
  • Despite having some success in life, the author felt unfulfilled and wanted to make significant changes but was held back by her holier-than-thou attitude and fear.
  • The decision to actively work towards changing one's life is necessary for growth and living a meaningful life, even if it means taking risks and facing fears.
  • Believing in the possibility of limitless possibilities and having an open mind are crucial for personal development and making positive changes in one's life.


“You need to go from wanting to change your life to deciding to change your life.”

“Deciding means jumping in all the way, doing whatever it takes, and going after your dreams with the tenacity of a dateless cheerleader a week before prom night.”

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

“maybe, if you put your disbelief aside, roll up your sleeves, take some risks, and totally go for it, you’ll wake up one day and realize you’re living the kind of life you used to be jealous”

CHAPTER 1: My Subconscious Made Me Do It


  • Our subconscious mind contains the blueprint for our lives based on unfiltered information gathered as children.
  • We are often oblivious to these subconscious beliefs that run our lives.
  • Our conscious minds, though developed and in control in many aspects, are still controlled by subconscious beliefs.
  • Understanding the role of the subconscious mind can help identify and change limiting beliefs hindering desired goals.
  • Becoming aware of underlying beliefs is the first step to changing them and living a fulfilling life.


“All this is to say that it’s not your fault that you’re fucked up. It’s your fault if you stay fucked up, but the foundation of your fuckedupedness is something that’s been passed down through generations of your family, like a coat of arms or a killer cornbread recipe, or in my case, equating confrontation with heart failure. When”

“When you came screaming onto this planet you were truly a bundle of joy, a wide-eyed creature incapable of doing anything but being in the moment. You had no idea that you had a body, let alone that you should be ashamed of it. When you looked around, everything just was. There was nothing about your world that was scary or too expensive or so last year as far as you were concerned. If something came near your mouth, you stuck it in, if it came near your hand, you grabbed it. You were simply a human... being.”

“I can pretty much guarantee that every time you tearfully ask yourself the question, “WTF is my problem?!” the answer lies in some lame, limiting, and false subconscious belief that you’ve been dragging around without even realizing”

“No matter what you say you want, if you’ve got an underlying subconscious belief that it’s going to cause you pain or isn’t available to you, you either A) Won’t let yourself have it, or B) You will let yourself have it, but you’ll be rill fucked up about it. And then you’ll go off and lose it anyway.”

CHAPTER 2: The G-Word


  • Our perception of the universe can be understood through energy, frequency, and vibration.
  • Initially dismissive of spirituality, the author found value in exploring it due to personal struggles.
  • The Universe is made up of Source Energy, which we can connect with for personal growth and improvement.
  • Vibration attracts like vibration; focus on positive feelings to attract positive experiences.
  • Raise your frequency to match what you desire, as the Universe matches the vibration put out.
  • Believe in the availability of what you want and stay connected to Source Energy for success.
  • Take decisive action while maintaining a high frequency for optimal results.
  • Maintain faith even during uncertain or challenging times.

CHAPTER 3: Present as a Pigeon


  • Living in the present brings peace and connection to the Universe.
  • Fear of being stuck in difficult poses or situations can prevent us from experiencing the miracle of the moment.
  • Spending too much time dwelling on the past or worrying about the future prevents us from fully appreciating the present.
  • The Universe loves us and wants us to experience its miracles, offering wake-up calls through unexpected events or teachers like animals and children.
  • Practicing being present helps us download ideas and seize opportunities that we might miss otherwise.
  • To be more present, focus on your breath and senses, shutting off thoughts and connecting to Source Energy.
  • While planning for the future and learning from the past has value, excessive time spent in these mental states can prevent us from living fully in the present.


“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”

“It never ceases to amaze me the precious time we spend chasing the squirrels around our brains, playing out our dramas, worrying about unwanted facial hair, seeking adoration, justifying our actions, complaining about slow Internet connections, dissecting the lives of idiots, when we are sitting in the middle of a full-blown miracle that is happening right here, right now. We're on a planet that somehow knows how to rotate on its axis and follow a defined path while it hurtles through space! Our hearts beat! We can see! We have love, laughter, language, living rooms, computers, compassion, cars, fire, fingernails, flowers, music, medicine, mountains, muffins!”

CHAPTER 4: The Big Snooze


  • The Big Snooze (BS) refers to the limiting false beliefs and decisions that keep us from living our true potential.
  • BS operates based on fear, validation from outside sources, reactivity, and a commitment to maintaining your comfort zone.
  • Your true self operates according to connection to Source Energy, love-based validation, proactivity, and a commitment to creating a reality based on your limitless potential.
  • Waking up from the Big Snooze means overcoming disapproval and fear from others who are not supportive of your growth.
  • The detox from limiting beliefs can feel chaotic as the subconscious mind tries to self-sabotage and keep things as they are.
  • The Big Snooze will do everything it can to stop you from changing and growing, but staying committed to your goals is essential for creating a reality that truly expresses who you are.


“Even though they’re often doing it out of love and concern, having others smear their fear and worry all over you is the last thing you need when you’re strengthening your superhero muscles to step out and take some risks, so I highly recommend keeping your mouth shut around people who are gonna bring you down. Instead, seek out those who are already totally kicking butt (or who are lifting up their foot to do so), or people who you know will be supportive, and confide in them. Because you’ll have your own internal freak show to deal with as you try to overcome the objections from your own BS.”

CHAPTER 5: Self-Perception Is a Zoo


  • Self-perception is a constant struggle between believing in one's own glory and fearing incapability or worthlessness
  • It takes the same amount of energy to believe you're awesome as it does to believe you're not
  • Try seeing yourself through the eyes of someone who admires you
  • You choose how you perceive your reality, so why not see yourself as a "super huge rock star"
  • You are a badass and loved by the Universe
  • Embrace your perfection in all its unique and imperfect ways
  • Laugh at yourself, love yourself, and rejoice in the cosmic ridiculousness.


“It’s just as easy to believe we’re awesome as it is to believe we’re giant sucking things.”

“You are loved. Massively. Ferociously. Unconditionally. The Universe is totally freaking out about how awesome you are. It’s got you wrapped in a warm gorilla hug of adoration. It wants to give you everything you desire. It wants you to be happy. It wants you to see what it sees in you.”

“You are perfect. To think anything less is as pointless as a river thinking that it’s got too many curves or that it moves too slowly or that its rapids are too rapid. Says who? You’re on a journey with no defined beginning, middle or end. There are no wrong twists and turns. There is just being. And your job is to be as you as you can be. This is why you’re here. To shy away from who you truly are would leave the world you-less. You are the only you there is and ever will be. I repeat, you are the only you there is and ever will be. Do not deny the world its one and only chance to bask in your brilliance.”

“We are all perfect in our own, magnificent, fucked-up ways. Laugh at yourself. Love yourself and others. Rejoice in the cosmic ridiculousness.”

CHAPTER 6: Love the One You Is


  • We're born knowing how to trust ourselves, love ourselves, and live authentically, but we often replace these instincts with negative beliefs, fear, shame, and self-doubt.
  • Investing in the belief that we're not good enough is the most rampant destructive force in our lives.
  • Pay attention to your thought patterns and behaviors, and consciously change them to positive ones.
  • Replace negative self-talk with affirmations and compliments.
  • Take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and sexually.
  • Avoid comparison and focus on enjoying your own unique journey.
  • Forgive yourself for past mistakes and choose to let go of guilt and self-criticism.
  • Be proactive in creating a life you love instead of settling for one you think you're stuck with.


“Imagine what our world would be like if everyone loved themselves so much that they weren’t threatened by other people’s opinions or skin colors or sexual preferences or talents or education or possessions or lack of possessions or religious beliefs or customs or their general tendency to just be whoever the hell they are.”

“There will never be anyone exactly like you. You were given special gifts and talents to share with the world, and even though everybody has special gifts and talents, nobody will use theirs quite the same way you do.”

“Take care of yourself as if you’re the most awesome person you’ve ever met.”

“What you tell yourself on a daily basis is more powerful than you know.”

“Our thoughts become our words, our words become our beliefs, our beliefs become our actions, our actions become our habits, and our habits become our realities.”

“Say nice things about your body, dress it up, and take it out. Give it hot sex, luxurious baths, and massages. Move it, stretch it, nourish it, hydrate it, pay attention to it—The better our bodies feel, the happier and more productive we are.”

“Comparison is the fastest way to take all the fun out of life.”

“Holding on to my bad feelings about this is doing nothing but harming me, and everyone else, and preventing me from enjoying my life fully. I am an awesome person. I choose to enjoy my life. I choose to let this go.”

CHAPTER 7: I Know You Are But What Am I?


  • Don't let others' opinions control your decisions and actions.
  • Focus on what you want, where it will take you, and if it harms others.
  • Your worth comes from within, not from others' perceptions.
  • Do your best in all that you do and come from a place of integrity.
  • Trust your intuition and inner guidance.
  • Find a role model or mentor to inspire and guide you.
  • Love yourself unconditionally.
  • Constructively use outside opinions for self-improvement.



“Nobody who ever accomplished anything big or new or worth raising a celebratory fist in the air did it from their comfort zone. They risked ridicule and failure and sometimes even death.”

“You are responsible for what you say and do. You are not responsible for whether or not people freak out about it.”

“What other people think about you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them.”

“Because if you base your self-worth on what everyone else thinks of you, you hand all your power over to other people and become dependent on a source outside of yourself for validation. Then you wind up chasing after something you have no control over, and should that something suddenly place its focus somewhere else, or change its mind and decide you’re no longer very interesting, you end up with a full-blown identity crisis.”

CHAPTER 8: What Are You Doing Here?


  • Discovering and sharing your unique gifts can lead to a happy, fulfilling life of abundance and choice.
  • The excitement and joy of giving a perfect gift to others is unparalleled.
  • Living a life on purpose by identifying and using your calling leads to feeling happiest, most alive, and most like yourself.

  • Follow your fantasies and tap into what brings you great joy, regardless of financial constraints.
  • Sit quietly every day to tune in to your intuition and receive answers.
  • Embrace your biggest and best versions of yourself through your fantasies.


“When we share what we were brought here to give, we are in alignment with our highest, most powerful selves.”

“Follow what feels good in the moment, every moment, and it will lead you through a most excellent life.”

  • Practice self-love and let it bring happiness and fulfillment into your life.


“We only get to be in our bodies for a limited time, why not celebrate the journey instead of merely riding it out until it’s over?”

“There’s nothing as unstoppable as a freight train full of fuck-yeah. If you’ve ever known what it’s like to be in your groove, and are having trouble finding your way right now, think back to your attitude and what your priorities were when you were totally lit up about life, and use them to help give you the clarity and the kick in the rear end you need now.”

“Making a big fat deal out of anything is absurd. It makes much more sense to go after life with a sense of, “Why not?” instead of a furrowed brow. One of the best things I ever did was make my motto “I just wanna see what I can get away with.” It takes all the pressure off, puts the punk rock attitude in, and reminds me that life is but a game.”

CHAPTER 13: Give and Let Give


  • Giving brings joy and strengthens faith, raising one's frequency in life.
  • Fear can make us hold on to possessions and prevent sharing.
  • The universe operates based on give and receive, so the more you give, the more you receive.

  • Responding positively instead of negatively to rude people raises their energy.
  • Practicing self-love is essential in the act of giving and receiving.

CHAPTER 14: Gratitude: The Gateway Drug to Awesomeness


  • Gratitude is a state of being that leads to fear disappearing and abundance appearing.
  • Politeness is a form of custom, while gratitude is a deeper appreciation for life's miracles.
  • Being grateful makes you feel good and connects you to Source Energy, making it easier to manifest positive experiences.
  • Gratitude strengthens faith by allowing you to believe in the not-yet-manifested and expect good things to come.
  • Consistently practicing gratitude leads to a stronger connection to Source Energy and self-love.
  • Look for ways to be grateful for all aspects of your life, even the challenging ones, to raise your frequency and find lessons.
  • Write down or mentally note ten things you're grateful for each day as part of an evening routine.
  • Love yourself and be grateful for who you are and what you're becoming.


“Faith smothers your fear of the unknown. Faith allows you to take risks. Faith is the stuff of “leap and the net will appear.”     Faith is your best buddy when you’re scared shitless.”

“When you are consistently in a state of gratitude, and aware of all the awesomeness that already exists, it, among many other things, makes it much easier for you to believe that there’s more awesomeness where that came from, and that this yet-to-be-manifested awesomeness is also available to you. You’ve received awesomeness before, so of course, you can receive awesomeness again. This is how gratitude strengthens your faith. And having strong faith is a major key in transforming your life.”

“If you wanna stay stuck in the same place and keep getting spanked with the same lessons over and over, be negative, resentful, and victimized. If you want to get over your issues and rock your life, be grateful, look for the good and learn.”

“Every night before you go to bed, review your day and either write down or mentally note ten things you can be grateful for in your life. These can be everything from the beautiful flowers in your garden to the fact that your heart is beating to the hour-long visit from your persnickety neighbor that taught you to be happy that you don’t have her life. Stopping and noticing throughout the day all the things that you can be grateful for is a great way to keep your frequency high at all times. So try and remember to do it all day long, but at the very least, make it part of your evening routine.”

CHAPTER 15: Forgive or Fester


  • Forgiveness means letting go of emotional pain and focusing on relief, even if it requires acknowledging and dealing with discomfort first.
  • Holding onto resentment and negative feelings towards others can negatively impact your mental and physical health, keeping you stuck in the past.
  • To forgive, find compassion for yourself and others involved by understanding their motivations and actions as rooted in fear or confusion.
  • Remove the person from the equation to focus on your own reaction and growth.
  • Choose happiness over being right, letting go of grudges and focusing on what makes you feel good in the present.
  • Look at situations from different perspectives and let go of attachment to assumptions and judgments.
  • Allow yourself to express anger or frustration fully before releasing it and moving on.

  • Focus on the positive aspects of relationships and encourage good behavior to create more positivity.
  • Love and take care of yourself as the foundation for forgiveness and growth.


“Forgiveness is all about taking care of you, not the person you need to forgive. It’s about putting your desire to feel good before your desire to be right. It’s about taking responsibility for your own happiness instead of pretending it’s in somebody else’s hands. It’s about owning your power by giving all your anger, resentment, and hurt the heave-ho.”

“In order to kick ass you must first lift up your foot.     —Jen Sincero; author, coach, self-quoter”

“Because so often when we say we’re unqualified for something, what we’re really saying is that we’re too scared to try it, not that we can’t do it.”

Such a waste of such a glorious gift.”

CHAPTER 20: Fear Is for Suckers


  • Fear is an omnipresent, all-consuming feeling that can be chosen to engulf us or rejected in favor of calm action.
  • Our fear is often based on imagined scenarios that may never come to pass and can be drowned out by faith and a belief in the unknown.
  • We have a choice between engaging with our fears or turning on the lights and moving forward.

  • Our greatest fears are often the greatest waste of time, and confronting them with truth can lead to personal growth and fulfillment.
  • By changing our perspective on fear, we can use it as fuel for positive action rather than letting it hold us back.
  • Staying present in the moment and connecting to a higher source of energy can help us deal effectively with fears and challenges.
  • Limiting exposure to negative information and focusing on positive sources can help reduce fear and anxiety.
  • Avoid dwelling on upsetting thoughts before bed, instead focusing on relaxation techniques to promote a good night's sleep and effective problem-solving in the morning.
  • Loving ourselves is essential for building resilience and facing fears with confidence.


“There’s something called the Crab Effect. If you put a bunch of crabs in a bowl and if, while they’re in there crawling all over each other, one of them tries to climb out, the rest of them will try to pull him back down instead of helping to push him out. No wonder they’re called crabs.”

“Surrendering is the free-falling backwards into the unknown and trusting that The Universe will catch you.”

Which automatically lights up the world around you. Which is precisely why you are here: to shine your big-ass ball of fire onto this world of ours. A world that literally depends upon light to survive. You”

“You are powerful. You are loved. You are surrounded by miracles.”
