My thoughts

I absolutely love this book! It is especially good if you need a quick pick me up and reminder of the power within you because it is set out and laid out so clearly, so concisely and with purpose.

It brings humour in an understanding and anecdotal way to self-improvement making it an interesting read as well as a practical manual. There are 27 bite-sized chapters which provide so many useful insights, concepts and ideas.

Almost every chapter ends with a list of practical applications of the concepts which were spoken about. This is a high-quality self-help book with a good balance of practices, concepts and humour.

Quotes from the book

Because if you base your self-worth on what everyone else thinks of you, you hand all your power over to other people and become dependent on a source outside of yourself for validation.

The majority of pain and suffering in our lives is caused by the unnecessary drama we create.

Jen Sincero, You are a Badass. Chapter 19: The drama of overwhelm

Ever notice how if you’ve got six months to do something, it’ll take you six months to do it, but if you have a week, it’ll take you a week.
