Title: You are a Badass
Author: Jen Sincero
“You can start out with nothing, and out of nothing, and out of no way, a way will be made.”
I don’t know what I was expecting but I had heard such good things about this book I put it at the top of my 2019 reading list. What a great way to start the new year? This book, for me start to finish was so good. The way the book is written is the perfect mix of being informative, inspiring and funny.
For me when it comes to “Self Help” or personal development type books there are 3 main points I hope they hit.
- It gives you information that sounds like it should almost just be common sense but when you here it or in this case read it from someone else it makes perfect sense or feels like an epiphany. Kind of like confirmation to your soul of what it already knows is true.
- Should be engaging
- Should challenge and inspire you to take action.
Jen Sincero hits all three effortlessly. She not only offers clever and witty chapter titles but gives great applicable information and advice written in a way that makes you feel like she speaking from experience and gets it.
To me books like this are so important to read and keep reading because it keeps you motivated to continue to grow and learn. It has been said a variety of way:
“The mind is everything. What you think you become” ~Buddha
“A person is limited only by the thoughts the he chooses.” ~James Allen
“We become what we think about” ~Earl Nightingale
So in conclusion I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to harness their inner awesome and be entertained while doing it.
