Ah Jersey Shore.
It’s like a car crash, you just have to look.
Which makes me wonder…
…Is there more closet Twilight fans or people who love Jersey Shore?
I think it’s too close to call.
And what about Snooki?
You’ve gotta love that girl. She’s awkward, adorable, and just a little bit broken.
She’s like a teeny lost kitten you find on the street. You want to take her home and care for her. But at the same time, you know eventually she’s going to trash your leather couch.
But you’re OK with that.
Snooki, the ultimate guidette, gets a bad rap.
But I think, if you take a moment to look a little deeper, you may be surprised by what you find.
4 Secrets To Living Your Life To The Fullest That I Learned From Snooki
1) Be You
“I’m not pissed off that they put pickles under my bed as a joke, but I’m pissed off that Mike and Pauly wasted two pickles.” ~ Snooki
Whether it’s her love of pickles, her big hair, or her trucker mouth, Snooki is Snooki through and through.
What you see is what you get.
She had the courage to get on national TV and just be herself.
When was the last time that you gave yourself permission to do the same?
2) Know What You Want
“My ideal man would be Italian, dark, muscles, juice-head, guido.” ~ Snooki
“My ultimate dream is to move to Jersey, find a nice juiced hot tanned guy and live my life.” ~ Snooki
Snooki is always on the prowl. But the big thing here is that she’s taken the time to identify what she wants. She’s got a clear picture of her ideal man and her perfect life.
What does your ideal life look like? Where are you living? What are you doing? How does your day unfold? If you’re looking for your soul mate what are the qualities they posses? What do they look like?
Snooks has created the ideal vision for her life. Take a moment to sit down and really think about what it is you want your life to look like.
3) Harpoon Those Opportunities When They Come
“It doesn’t leave your face greasy, and there’s no bad smell to it like other spray tans. I never used spray tanners until this one because I usually just went tanning. But you know after the taxing, you don’t want to deal with that, and friggin’ cancer—so this is a great product to replace all the bad stuff of tanning.” ~ Snooki
She’s already endorsed a spray tan product line and I’ve read that she’s in talks with her managers about a line of hair products, a book deal, and probably her own reality spin-off show.
There’s a saying, “Don’t wait for your ship to come in – swim out to it”
I’m not sure if she can swim, but Snooki’s really harpooning the opportunities from the shores of her new found fame.
Do the same for your life.
Now I don’t want you to be all, “Well it must be nice to have your own reality show. That’s why she’s getting all these deals.”
There’s opportunities everywhere.
Sometimes you’ve got to hunt them down.
And Snooki’s smart. She’s working within her niche. Choosing products that she actually uses and believes in. She is her own market.
So what are the problems that you have in your life? Is there any good solutions out there for them? If not why not create your own? And if there are some pretty good products out there why not use your influence to introduce them to your clique?
4) Try New Things
“I feel like I’m in the twilight zone right now.” ~ Snooki
Rachel Ray and the Jersey Shore girls. I would’ve never thought to put the two of them together. But they did and it was a huge success. Heck I stopped flipping the channels to tune in and I never watch that show. But I do think Rachel is adorable.
Rachel had the girls on the show for a make-under. Normally you see make-over shows. But since the Shore girls are pretty wild with their looks they figured seeing Snookums, JWoww, and Sammi toned down would be more of a shocker.
And it was.
Snooki hated her look. But she was game enough to give it a try.
When was the last time you tried something new?
You don’t have to do big changes. You can start small. Like try taking a new way home from work. If you usually read fiction try non-fiction. Or if you usually go out for Indian food try Italian instead.
Are you surprised that all this wisdom was gleaned from Snooki?
Who would’ve thunk that behind all the make-up and cussing was a girl who may actually know a thing or two about life?
