You are a Badass by Jen Sincero
Audience: Appropriate for adults
I read You are a Badass at just the perfect time. For some time I had been thinking about working on some new projects but I had filled my mind with all the challenges, obstacles and reasons why I couldn’t take action on these projects. You are a Badass cuts to the point and it helped me to clear my mind of all the excuses I had built up. I was preparing for failure before I had even taken the first-step and this book helped me to put things in perspective and get back on track.
You are a Badass is full of humor and wisdom which I personally think is a great combination. I found myself shaking my head, highlighting lines, swearing out-loud while thinking “she wrote this line about me”!
This is a great read for people in transition or for people who want to be in transition. While I didn’t find any of the ideas to be groundbreaking I did find them to relevant and applicable. This book was a great reminder that we can choose to live a different life each and every day.
As Sincero says, “Your life is your party. You get to choose how you invite people and experiences and things into it.” Welcome to my party people, let’s do this!
