“If you’re serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way. If you’re not, you’ll find an excuse.”

About the book 

In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word. If you're ready to make some serious changes around here, You Are a Badass will help you: Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want, blast past your fears so you can take big exciting risks, figure out how to make some damn money already, learn to love yourself and others, set big goals and reach them - it will basically show you how to create a life you totally love, and how to create it NOW.

By the end of You Are a Badass, you'll understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can't change, how to change what you don't love, and how to use The Force to kick some serious ass.




Inspirational books require a different kind of thinking to be able to connect with the insights and knowledge within the book.

"You are a bad ass" - in my opinion - is a one of a kind self-help-inspirational-motivational book because I can assure you I was feeling Bad Ass halfway into the book. I honestly don't think books like this should be rushed rather it should be read with patience and digested in bit sizes.

What I really LOVE about the book is the fact that at the end of every chapter, Jen told us to "Love ourselves". No matter what it is, what you have to achieve, what you need to achieve, how you want to be better, how you require to be different (the list is endless); the first step is to love yourself.

Honestly speaking, whatever Jen wrote in this book is like little nuggets or snippets of what you have heard before some time in your life but she wrote it in a fun way with a bit of sauce. It felt like she was talking to me in a room in a language that I and every other person would understand.


I know quite a number of people that do not like self-help books because they feel that the author says a bunch of stuff that just doesn't work or add up. Personally I would say that this book is for those kind of people because it comes in nuggets and the chapters are not too long and bulky; Jen inserted stories based on her life journeys and I found it pretty intense and interesting.


Do you enjoy self - help books?
