In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word. If you’re ready to make some serious changes around here, You Are a Badass will help you: Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want, blast past your fears so you can take big exciting risks, figure out how to make some damn money already, learn to love yourself and others, set big goals and reach them – it will basically show you how to create a life you totally love, and how to create it now.
By the end of You Are a Badass, you’ll understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can’t change, how to change what you don’t love, and how to use The Force to kick some serious ass.
I usually don’t read self-help books, but I do try to read things outside my comfort zone and because we are getting closer to 2019, I needed every help I can get so after I heard so many good things about this book, I decided to buy it… And I am so happy I did.
This book didn’t have many original ideas, and the author told me things I probably already knew… However, it was still a nice reminder of what I need to do and sometimes it is nice to have a good reminder a push even if it comes out from a book.
As I try to surround myself with things that will be a constant reminder of what I want and how I want to achieve it, I loved reading this book because of that… A great reminder and sometimes if we know something we really don’t get it, lol. Some things just clicked really good in this book and I plan to read this book again in 2019 with fresh new eyes 😉
I mostly felt with all the things I highlighted that it was like a reminder post-it note or a smart cheat sheet for you to always pick into and plan your goals smarter and achieve them faster.
I got this book in an ebook and so I highlighted a few lines and paragraphs that I knew will stick with me for a while…
“If you’re serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way. If you’re not, you’ll find an excuse”.
“If you want to live a life you’ve never lived, you have to do things you’ve never done”.
This is beyond true and correct for me, and I just realized that while reading this book and since then… So much have changed and still is changing ❤
For me, this book was more like a push in the right direction, I needed it a lot 😀
