I am going to be reviewing a book that I loved so much. It is called You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero. I like the funniness of the Jen Sincero and her style of writing. She is talking how you can kick the ass of fear, stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life.
I love love love site called Book Depository. They are so wonderful. Every time I buy a book, they send me a book mark as well. Order your books from them wherever you are. They have a free shipping worldwide. Check them out HERE (Affiliate link), and order your favorite book at NO SHIPPING COST.
I am still under the impression of the book. Liked it a lot. The advises are very easy and understandable, followed with her life experiences.
If you are planing to write a book just look at the contents on the first pages of the books that you have, and you will see how are they organised. There are the parts, and then the chapters.
Jen wrote a 5 parts, and then the all parts have 6 or 7 chapters. The first part is about: “How You Got This Way”, second “How To Embrace Your Inner Badass” then the “How To Tap Into The Inner Motherlode”, How To Get Over Your B.S. Already”, “How To Kick Some Ass”.
If you want to live a life you”ve never lived, you have to do things you”ve never done.
Part 1: How You Got This Way
We are all programmed to think how we are just our bodies and names of that body, but we are much more. We are the creators. My body”s name is Maja. But who is My? I am much much more than the things I do. I am much much more than I think I am. Other people programmed us, our parents, friends, society, but doesn”t have to stay this way. Do whatever it takes to work on your beliefs from now on, stretch yourself every day and help others do the same. Help them realize the stories that they saying to themselves. That they are much much more than their “weaknesses”.
All of us are connected to this limitless power and most of us aren”t using but a fraction of it.
You cannot create a future focusing on the past. You need to live in the present and constantly being focused to surrender on what it is, buy keep an eye of what you want to create tomorrow.
Part 2: How To Embrace Your Inner Badass
- APPRECIATE HOW SPECIAL YOU ARE
There is no other person that look and act like you. You are very special, unique and authentic. And please, from now on appreciate that. You are the only you that will ever be. You are kind of a big deal. That special you are. Never forget that.
You are responsible for what you say and do. You are not responsible for whether or not people freak out about it.
2. DROWN YOURSELF IN AFFIRMATIONS
Affirmations definitely work. I know for myself. I am repeating affirmations every day, talking out loud, or silently, and it feels amazing. I am at the point now when I am starting to believe all the things that I was saying to myself.
Now, why you should affirm yourself? You”ve been living a lie, talking about yourself all the stuff that are half truth. You are so much more than you think you are. You are a miracle! You are that special. You are not your name, you are not your style, you are not your degree, you are not your role. You are so much more!
3. DO THE THINGS YOU LOVE
Take care of yourself as if you”re the most wonderful person you ever met. If you like going to live music and you don”t remember when you been last time, now is the time. Why would you not go? If this is something that you really like, why would you stop going there? Nobody is going to bring you to the live music, you need to bring yourself. Go to the live music tonight, and notice how wonderful it is.
4. FIND A REPLACEMENT
Listen to your thoughts. I mean, really listen to them. What are you saying to yourself when you do some “mistake”? What are you saying yourself for the days not being proactive? What are you saying to yourself after kicking of something of kitchen counter? All that really matters. What are you really saying to yourself, is of big importance. Find a replacement. And say something nice to yourself next time.
5. DITCH THE SELF-DEPRECATING HUMOR
Laugh at yourself every day. Every morning when you see yourself in the mirror, instead of telling yourself “Yikes”, laugh at yourself, and tell yourself how not everything has to be perfect. You are perfect in that imperfection. People often times take lives seriously, but the matter of fact is, it is not that serious. Laugh at yourself every day and notice how you feeling after. You will feel joyous, happy and contentment. Also, beating yourself up is a low vibration, you are vibrating from a victim.
6. LET THE LOVE IN
We need our bodies more than they need us. So, appreciate your body. If your body feels good, all your mental state will feel good as well. I know myself every morning when I do yoga, I feel like the world is mine, and I feel like I can conquer the world, feel like I can jump out of my skin. Love your body, nourish your body with the right foods, go for a massage, give it a hot sex.
Comparison is the fastest way to take all the fun out of life.
7. DON”T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS
You probably not even realizing how special you are. Imagine Marilyn Monroe compared to Kate Moss and decided to loose her curves. We would not know Marilyn like a sexy lady with a hips and beautiful curly blond hair. Picasso is painting most beautiful pictures, you trying to copy some certain picture would look completely different, but you rock at some other things. That special you are!
8. FORGIVE YOURSELF (THIS ONE IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT)
To be truly O.K. with yourself is crucial if you wanna live extraordinary, fulfilling and happy life. If you need to apologize to someone, just pick up the phone and call them. I”ll never forget when I picked up the phone and call my mother and sister (one call after another) to apologize for being childish and taking things personally, not speaking with them. I felt so relieving and free. Was wonderful feeling. Like the one: “Everything is in my control.”
It is truly gem this book. It will make you smile and give you that trust of how all is possible, and especially for you. It gives you that sense of not taking things to seriously but working towards your goals no matter what. Do this ACTION today and buy book NOW. It is truly life saver.
