Bestselling author, speaker, and success coach Jen Sincero cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver. Full of blunt humor, sage advice, and the occasional swear word, You are a Badass offers its readers new opportunities for growth through 35 chapters of exercises, suggestions, and hilariously inspiring stories.
From “Fear is for Suckers” to “Your Brain is Your Bitch” these chapters provide enlightening lessons: How to stop doubting your greatness, how to love what you don’t love about yourself, and how to tap into source energy to live a bigger life than you’ve ever imagined.
My brother gave me this book for Christmas. Maybe it was the fantastic title that got his attention, or perhaps he thought I could use a little pep talk. I’ll be the first to admit that I do sometimes feel a little low and doubt my own level of ‘badassness,’ so I tried to go into this read with an open mind. To be honest, I don’t usually enjoy self-help books. Although initially intriguing, they tend to be monotonous and boring a lot of the time, and my attention usually wavers early on. It always seems to be a lot of stuff that I know I should be doing, and whether I actually follow through or not is a whole different story. I know it take conscientious work and effort to make changes in your life, and sometimes I lack in the follow through which actually results in feeling even worse about myself than I did when I started. However, I thought this was a very thoughtful gift that might at least provide a little inspiration for me, and I’m so glad that I gave this terrific read a chance!
