My Latest Read
One of my 2019 goals is to read at least 24 books during the year. This seems like a pretty reasonable goal as two books a month is not unrealistic.
With a Chapters gift card, I purchased five new books to get me started. One of those books was Jen Sincero‘s newest book “You Are a Badass Every Day: How To Keep Your Motivation Strong, Your Vibe High, and Your Quest for Transformation Unstoppable”.
When the book arrived I was admittedly surprised. It was not what I expected. The book was much smaller in both size and amount of writing than the other books from her which I have read.
Once I had a chance to sit down with the book, I flipped it open and was again surprised by the content. Surprised not in a negative sense just surprised with how the book was structured. I was expecting a format much like her other books where she discusses her thoughts on a variety of topics in a chapter by chapter format.
This book is more of a quick hit daily motivational kick in the butt. She refers to the book as a “spiritual gym workout”. It does not go deep into explaining concepts or ideas. It provides prompts of various things to think about and then put into action.
She suggests that the reader walk through what she is talking about (for example, a quick meditation, repeating intentions or writing in a journal) and that the book does not need to be read for long periods of time.
I sat down and read the book cover to cover in about an hour and a half. The thoughts are often short and very easy to read. Her advice and motivation are always on point and very beneficial to anyone who wants to become a baddass.
Since I read it, I have flipped it open on a daily basis to reread a page or two. This is where I think the major benefit of the book is. The daily affirmation or kick in the ass is very helpful for anyone who needs that extra little boost.
I have read Jen Sincero’s other “badass” books and really enjoyed them. I recommend this book for sure as I think it will provide some helpful ques in your day to day life and a kick in the butt on those days which are tougher.
