Book Review of You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero
Over the past year, I’ve learned a lot about reprogramming the mindset and leading a positive life through positive thinking. Through that journey, I stumbled across You are a Badass by Jen Sincero. Not only was Jen Sincero right about that aspect of myself but I came across the book during a time in my life where I wasn’t particularly feeling like a badass. I remember thinking as I was scanning the books on the bookshelf that her particular book spoke to me. I started the book as soon as I returned home and it’s been on my nightstand ever since.
This is the kind of book that is great even for people who aren’t big readers because it’s funny. It’s a comfortable read almost like sitting down for coffee with your best friend getting advice. That’s what it’s like reading this book. During a chapter titled “Your Brain is Your Bitch,” you are given ways in which you can reprogram your mind to think positively instead of negatively. The last tip in the chapter was my favorite and it left a smile on my face. “6. Love Yourself. Unless you have a better idea.”
It’s the kind of self-help book that helps you improve your life without busting your ass about it. There are no judgments throughout the book, so it doesn’t make you feel bad about your past mistakes. The book gives you a way to acknowledge how you sabotage your own life, and it gives you the steps you need to stop doing that. You Are a Badass, shows you how to create the life that you want and to live it right NOW! If you are struggling financially, Sincero gives you the steps you need to take to reframe your mind so that you can bring an abundant amount of money into your life. It gives you the tools you need to start making those big bucks every single day.
“Everything you do along your journey contributes to where you’re going.”
I have read the book twice already and it’s the kind of book you will keep on your bookshelf for future reference. Sincero shows you what it means to be a badass and to wake up with that feeling every day. She will show you how to stop doubting your “greatness” and show you how to live the awesome life that you have always dreamed up. I know one thing is for sure, if you weren’t a badass before, you would feel like a badass after reading this book. I look forward to digging into her other books and I give this one a five-star rating for pure awesomeness!
If you are in a rut and looking for a new perspective on life, then you can’t go wrong with You Are a Badass. It will have you laughing out loud and appreciating the life you have in a new way.
