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.
My thoughts and opinion:
Let me start off by saying that I actually highlighted a few things in this book, I actually liked some parts of this. But then again, it is so boring and repetitive. I just counted: out of 17 chapters she wrote "love yourself" at the end of 15 of them. FIFTEEN. What in the actual hell?! Also, Jen Sincero seems to love bragging about her friends, clients and herself. "Here, let me tell you this story". Feels more like an autobiography than a self help book. And who read this before approving? NOKOLO TESLA. What? You mean Nikola, right? I was already thinking about stopping this book when she brought God into this. Leave spirituality (if you believe or not is completely up to you) out of this mess of a book. Oh and the thing about "if you wanna sit in a pool with the president of the United States, you just have to believe and it will happen". What even is this? In my opinion she's trying way too hard to write a bestseller and it's showing.
