“The sooner you decide to write yourself a better script, the sooner you get to live a more awesome life.”~Jen Sincero
Ever have one of those days where you just don’t feel like you’ll ever stop spinning your wheels as you try to progress toward greatness?
Even if you’ve read it already, You are a Badass by Jen Sincero should be on your list of books to read before the end of this year. It’s one of those books that always gives me the kick in the butt to get to work on what’s important, no matter how many times I’ve read it before.
Jen Sincero is a Badass and It’s Contagious
The book starts off with a quote from Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith: “You can start out with nothing, and out of nothing, and out of no way, a way will be made.” From there, you get your first taste of the author’s quirky, fun, no-bullshit personality.
She starts off by letting the reader know, “I used to think quotes like this were a bunch of crap. I also didn’t understand what the hell they were talking about.”
After that, she goes on to explain her own journey with personal development and how to start your own in five parts: How You Got This Way, How to Embrace Your Inner Badass, How to Tap Into the Motherlode, How to Get Over Your B.S. Already, and How to Kick Some Ass.
It’ll Give You the Self-Esteem Boost You Didn’t Know You Needed
Even just reading the introduction, it’s so easy to relate to Jen and to feel like she’s sharing all the answers you’ve ever searched for.
She has a way of putting everything into an easy-to-digest perspective, with just enough fun and wit to keep it interesting.
On top of that, she shares tons of tips for just plain feeling better about yourself. Check out Chapter 6: Love the One You Is, in particular for gems like, “You aren’t a selfish person for taking care of yourself, just a happier one. Take care of yourself as if you’re the most awesome person you’ve ever met.”
Realistic Strategies You Can Put Into Place Immediately
As if the motivational nuggets all throughout the book weren’t enough, each chapter ends with a list of actionable steps you can start putting into place to manifest your best life possible.
This is why I get so much out of this book every time I read it. There’s too much to digest and take action on in just one read.
Read It, Read It Now!
Seriously, You are a Badass should be an annual read for everyone. Every time I read it, I take something new away and feel so great about my own abilities, I feel like I can conquer the world.
