You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life
YOU ARE A BADASS IS THE SELF-HELP BOOK FOR PEOPLE WHO DESPERATELY WANT TO IMPROVE THEIR LIVES BUT DON'T WANT TO GET BUSTED DOING IT.
In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, bestselling author and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bitesized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear wor
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
So I hardly have to mention that I stopped reading it immediately. ...more
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
This has all the hallmarks of a Self-Help book - cheesy one-liners and a perky "You CAN do it" attitude. I honestly expected it to be just another cookie cutter how to become the real you. Bleh. Needless to say, I was totally ready to hate it.
Yet, the more I read, the more I enjoyed hearing her advice. She's hilarious ...more
This book is basically a regurgitation of all other self-help kind of writings but with a "fun and hip" tone, or something. Often this "devil may care" quality feels forced. There are some parts of this book that could be very ...more

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
"All of us are connected to this limitless power, and most of us aren't using but a fraction of it"
"The universe is made up of source energy. All energy vibrates at a certain frequency, which means you're vibrating at a certain frequency, and everything you desire and don't desire is also vibrating at a certain frequency. Vibration attracts like vibration. Otherwise known as the law of attraction."
Jen Sincero is a badass who woke up from her mundane existence (THE BIG SNOOZE) and began throwing all her money, time and energy into the process of getting her true life back on track.
This book is like the cliff notes or the cheat sheet to all self help books everywhere. Which is why I loved it!! Instead of drawing out the formula to spirituality and meditation she gives you snippets of doable and less intimidating passages. This helps you take the beginning steps toward your badass- ...more
Now, this book would have me believe that it doesn't matter that this book is expensive, because if I truly feel that money will manifest itself in my future, then so it shall be. While I like the unbridled optimism that Sincero brings to this kinda half-baked self-help book, I ...more
NOW you tell me.
I'm not a fan of "tough love." I understand it's necessary in some situations, but for example, if I were on The Biggest Loser, there is NO WAY I would choose the personal trainer who bellows and screams at everyone as if she's lost her marbles. That sort of thing would make me angry but it wouldn't really motivate me. ...more
I don't know why or how or wtf but this book was actually unexpectedly good.
While most of the ideas were not all that new, still the end result was astonishingly motivating. I think I just clicked with this book.
There’s nothing as unstoppable as a freight train full of fuck-yeah. (c)
You're here. I'm here. I love you. I'm gonna pee all over the floor about it. (c) Ewww!
The only failure is quitting. Everything else is just gathering information. (c)
You cut yourself off fr ...more
There is nothing new in here. Jen Sincero has learned all these lessons from other self-help styled books and cultures about manifesting our world. Most people are looking to be a badass it seems so this appeals to most people. She did a wonderful job packaging all these ideas.
The basic thrust of this idea is that our thoughts create our world to some extent and ...more
I was really excited for this book. I have the day-by-day calendar and I love it. It's posts are quick and witty and there's a bonus on the back of every day that tells you something interesting, or is a little puzzle, or something to get you thinking. It's great. The book version was...a let down, for a few reasons.
Between the repetitiveness, Jen insulting the reader, and the big one, talking more about herself than actually how ...more
