You Are A Badass Book Review

Interesting title right? Well, the book is even better. Sent to me by my good friend Emma whilst I was recovering from knee surgery last year, I started reading it during my recovery time off work, where I couldn’t walk. Not being able to walk and reading a book that’s like ‘YOU ARE A BADASS YOU CAN MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE JUST TAKE THAT LEAP’ etc wasn’t ideal, so I put it down and waited for another time. It took me exactly a year to pick it up, but I’ve raced through it.

Jen Sincero is fucking hilarious, like I want to be her friend, Big time, I also want her to be my fairy God mother (or source mother… she’d get it), because damn she’d make me believe that I am Cinderella lookin’ for a rich fella and I can definitely talk to animals and turn a pumpkin into a Ferrari. This book is as motivating as it comes. It will also cause you to start analysing the way you think about version things and also how your mind works, which is pretty much what you want out of a self help, motivational book.

There are sections on meditation, how to manifest things you want, how to stop with those BS excuses you’ve created for yourself to protect yourself and just generally how to just fucking go for it and how to smash it out the park. See how American and enthusiastic I’m getting? Thank Ms Sincero for that.

It’s very satirical, so if you’re sensitive to people pointing out the truth and maybe some not so positive habits you might have, Maybe think twice. If you love a laugh, don’t mind taking the piss out of yourself and want to make a change, change job, start a business, move to a different continent or just stop being bored with your everyday, mundane life (because you KNOW there’s more than this out there) then read the book ASAP!
Also be warned, it’s a touch spiritual, I remember when I first read it and read the words ‘God’ and ‘source energy’ I rolls my eyes (SORRY JEN!) but now that I’m just in general a much more spiritually aware person, it makes a lot more sense, but go in with an open mind.


It’s a must read if I’m honest. It will make you laugh, you will have some amazing ‘EUREKA!’ moments and I’m pretty sure it will change your life. Even if you’re like me and you recently DID take that leap, you’ll undoubtedly find something invaluable in this book!

Some of my fave quotes:

One of the best things you can do to improve the world is to improve yourself

Doubt is resistance, faith is surrender. Worry is resistance, joy is surrender. Control is resistance, allowing is surrender. Ridicule is resistance, believing is surrender

Having money is like anything else; a tool. And if you see it that way, making it not just about you, but about a way that you can play a part in the dynamic by which money is used for the betterment of all things, then having money is not only a blessing, it’s a responsibility – Marianne Williamson
