This Book Reminded Me that I Always Was A Badass || Book Review of You Are A Badass

 Are you looking for a self-help book to help you stop doubting your greatness and live an awesome life? If yes,  then, Jen Sincero’s You Are a Badass is a great book to read.

The book’s  content is divided into five parts that show you: 

  1. How you got this way?
  2. How to embrace the inner badass?
  3. How to tab into the motherload?
  4. How to get away from your Big Snooze? and finally,
  5. How to kick some ass?

Having read a few self-help books before, reading this felt like a refresher with some new contents, perspectives, and realizations that were inspiring, impactful, motivating, and enhanced my clarity.

I liked the writing style. It was engaging. I felt I was being coached. It followed a structure that started with a quote, theoretical content and finally ended with ‘How To’… 

Take, for example, a chapter on meditation.  It started with a quote, followed by the theoretical about meditation, its benefits and finally ended with short and simple steps on ‘How To’ meditate with some options and suggestions that I’d try out. 

I have meditated for over a year, and I can acknowledge that I follow a similar ‘How To’ and experienced all the benefits. Besides, there are quite a few quotes I loved and resonated with. They are: 

1. Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past.

2. I have lived a long life and had many troubles, most of which never happened.

3. If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration. 

4. You are never alone or helpless, the force that guides the stars, guides you.

How did you find these? thought-provoking? Reflective? These and many others come from note-worthy books and people like Joseph Campbell, James Allen, Lily Tomlin, and Mark Twain.

Some takeaways unique to this book are:

  1. Life is an illusion created by your perception and it can be changed any moment you want to change it
  2. Forgiveness is all about taking care of yourself. It’s about putting your desires to feel good before your desire to be right. 
  3. When we want something so, so badly and are working tirelessly to get it, if we don’t surrender, we end up pushing it away instead. There comes a point where we need to hand the job to the universe. It doesn’t mean we stop taking action, it means we let go energetically to create space for what we want to come to us.

You Are a Badass reminded me that I always was a badass and didn’t realize it. It’s a great self-help book to read to help you stop doubting your greatness and live an awesome life.
