Reading has always been one of my favourite pastimes. In my youth, books were my escape from reality. They allowed me to visit far off places and become a wide array of different characters. It is only in the past couple of years that I have started to read books that are less about escape and more about reality. Self-help books have become an integral part of my path of self-discovery.
Out of all the books I have read on confidence, positivity, accepting change, and other such topics, the one that stands out to me the most is, “You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life” by Jen Sincero. It was a game changer. Not only is this book written in an approachable way (there is some swearing, the book is totally no-nonsense, and conversational) but it offers some great pearls of wisdom.
It covers just about everything. From why you are making excuses about things to connecting to your source energy to finding your passion and becoming a stronger human being. It also knows how to give you a much-needed push in the right direction. If you are looking for a self-help book that is going to coddle you and tell you everything is alright? Look elsewhere. “You Are a Badass” is all about motivating you to forgo excuses and start making changes.
There are specific challenges outlined to help you get started. Personal stories that make you feel understood. And laugh out loud lines to keep this intense personal development…fun. Out of all the self-help books I’ve read, this is by far the best. It is a straightforward book to help you get all you can out of life, become a more positive person, and love every minute of what you do.
Are you looking to change your life? To appreciate the little things? To become a badass? Then be sure to pick up this book the next time you visit your local bookstore.
