Well, it's been another rather hectic week, and I am now another book review behind. So, keep watching out for two more next week! I decided I needed a bit of a fiction break this week, and decided to pull out a book that's been on my shelf for a while. It's a little different than my normal book choices...
If you need a refresher on why I do a weekly book review, check it out here!
So, with no more ado, this week's book was You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero!
You are A Badass basically tells the reader how to get over the things that are holding them back, tap into the Force, and become the badasses they are meant to be. Using personal anecdotes from her own life, Sincero takes the reader step by step through becoming a more awesome person and living a more awesome life.
Sincero has the reader look at the assumptions they think are holding them back, the false rewards they get from telling themselves those lies, and how to tap into the Source Energy all around.
Sincero believes that by opening yourself up to change, and opportunity, the universe will open itself up to you, resulting in the awesome life you want to be living.
Sincero offers step by step methods, and little hints and tricks, to implement in your life to help you change and create the life, or get the job, or lose the weight, you want.
I normally don't read these types of books. But a dear friend got it for me, so I figured it was worth a read. And I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. Sincero was very funny, and real, making You are a Badass easy to read. She never tried to preach to the reader; instead, she offered real, and generally easy, steps someone can take to start to change their life.
By breaking the book into 5 sections, with Section 1 being the assumptions that hold us back to Section 5 telling us how to be awesome, Sincero breaks down her philosophy into bite-sized nuggets of wisdom that will resonate with the reader. I really agreed with a lot of what she said, and saw a lot of myself in what she said!
If you actually want to start changing your life, I would recommend reading this!
I give You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero a 4 out of 5!
