Title: You Are A Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living An Awesome Life
Genre: Self-Help, Inspirational
Page Count: 254
Publication Date: 2013
Summary: This is not your typical self-help book. Sincero encourages you to stop living a mediocre life and start reaching for your dreams, no matter how far-fetched those may be. She covers everything from spirituality to finances and thinking positively. In the back of the book, she lists a collection of similar books if you would like to continue reading more on the topic.
Recommended: Yes. This is one of those books that I plan to read again because it sort of reconfirmed that even with all the stress I’m experiencing (grad school, teaching, GA work), the end goal will be worth it (a Masters degree). The positive vibe from this book is outstanding.
If You’re Offended: You may want to skip this one. Lots of swear words and a handful of drug references.
Noteworthy Excerpts: “Nobody who ever accomplished anything big or new or worth raising a celebratory fist in the air did it from their comfort zone.” “The only failure is quitting. Everything else is just gathering information.”
