If you’re a fan of Jen Sincero’s You Are a Badass series then You Are a Badass Everyday would make one small, but powerful edition to your collection.
As the title suggests it’s made up of little tidbits and analogies that are meant to tackle the everyday. Jen herself suggests opening up her book whenever you feel you need that motivation, and whether or not that’s a toot at praising her own book I’ve gotta agree. It covers things from focus to affirmations you should say through the week. You can think of it as a summary of everything she’s written to-date.
Personally, I couldn’t read the whole one hundred pages of You Are a Badass Everyday in a single day. I needed to put it down, let the information sink into the deep recesses of my mind, and pick up where I left off the next day. Each section was that valuable to me that I had make them bite-sized, so I finished the book with a strong sense of self and confidence. So much so I wanted to buy a physical copy for myself! (I had borrowed the book from the library.)
What you’ll realize is that there aren’t chapters, just one or two pages that may or may not fill up the whole page. Again, it makes for an easy flip-and-read. No pressure. Between some sections are one or two lines of wisdom or affirmation. One of my favorites was:
If you run from your fears,
they will follow you.
If you run straight at your fears,
they will get the hell out of your way. Fears hate it when you do that.
All in all, I recommend adding this to your self-help and motivation list of books. I personally started with You Are a Badass at Making Money a year ago as a recommendation from a friend, they sent me a free trial to Audible and that’s how I started my venture into self-help concepts as well as audiobooks, and I haven’t looked back since! It’s helped me enjoy literature in a whole new dimension and I like it! I also recommend listening to one of her books in audio form because she reads her own texts, you get a feel for what she’s trying to say and how, making a connection between her thoughts and what I call, her “realness.”
This book gets five out of five stars from me, that’s for sure.
