You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life Reviews
OMG, this book was so, so good. The message was exactly what I needed to hear. So much craziness is going on in my life right now and I find myself doubting my greatness every...single...day.
The point Jen Sincero makes in this self-help book is we are all great, we all have enormous potential, we all possess the power to succeed at absolutely everything we direct our energy towards, but we are also our very own obstacle. Ms. Sincero identifies common thought processes and behaviors that keep us ...more
You Are A Bad Ass is the same pseudo-spiritual bunk you hear time and time again from self-help gurus all over the world. It was disappointing, the "sameness" that I got from it. In the end, all that I felt I received was a sweet-faced pep talk from a well-meaning but naïve friend.
I suppose I went into it hoping that this had a new, more practical take on helping one feel good about oneself in the face of hardship. But in the end, there was just the same "you get what you put out" anecdotal nons ...more
This book is Bad! Ass!
I don't think I've ever laughed out loud that many times while reading, though comic relief is not the intent. The whole purpose of the book is to freakin' change your life already. Make a difference. Love what you do. Love yourself. Love your life. Put your best foot forward again and again.
Are you where you want to be in your life? Doing what you want? Living where you want?
You have to want it, crave it, need it - can't live without it! If that's the place you're in, this ...more
This book was great for me. It probably isn’t that good for everybody. In short it says if you want to improve your life it’s only you that should decide and do it and believe that you can do it.
Like most of Self-Help books there are some stuff that can’t be copied to every and each of our lives. No it’s our responsibility and call to decide what is best for us. But someone like me needs a reminder once in while that she can live better.
This book is marketed as no-nonsense and plain-spoken, and it is definitely the latter, but has as much nonsense in it as any self-help book. There is, however, a lot of interesting information in here and I think can be a motivating to many people. You just have to get past what amounts to a bunch of sentient universe mumbo-jumbo, including the idea that, following this author's advice, you will always magically get "rock star" parking at the mall, etc. I suspect that when she does get a great ...more
I'm a sucker for a peppy self help book. There's nothing new here, but it's quick and a good pick me up. Basically, The Secret via a sassy coach. I don't mean that in a snarky way. My take on self help and diet books is similar...just because it's been done before doesn't mean it's not worth a read. Timing, refresher info, a kick in the pants all contribute to moving you forward in life.
I read one and a half chapters and then stumbled on the whole idea of source energy. If I want some real change in my life, I want real tips and not some esoteric mumbo jumbo. I'm also a bit peeved that the author mentioned in the very beginning that her readers should be open minded about her methods, and if they weren't they should just deal with living a sucky life. As if her methods were the only working ones.
So I hardly have to mention that I stopped reading it immediately.
*** PSA: Vent Alert***
I didn't give this review a low rating because Sicero is a bad writer - she is perfectly effective for the task at hand and actually her appealing "ra-ra-go-get'em" voice is what drew me in to begin with. I ultimately bailed however, as I have a Big Problem with the central thesis of this book. Basically it all boils down to the theory that everyone has the power to "manifest" their own reality and if things are not working out for them it is because they are not manifestin ...more
