You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jen Sincero

Narrated By: Jen Sincero

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: September 2013

Duration: 6 hours 0 minutes


Bestselling author, speaker, and world-traveling success coach Jen Sincero cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver in You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. In this refreshingly blunt how-to guide, Sincero serves up twenty-seven bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, life-changing insights, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word.

Via chapters such as 'Your Brain Is Your Bitch,' 'Fear Is for Suckers' and 'My Subconscious Made Me Do It,' Sincero takes you on a wild joy ride to your own transformation, helping you create the money, relationships, career, and general all-around awesomeness you so desire. And should you be one of those people who dreads getting busted with a self-help book in your hands, fear not. Sincero, a former skeptic herself, delivers the goods minus the New Age cheese, giving even the snarkiest of poo-pooers exactly what they need to get out of their ruts and start kicking some ass.

By the end of You Are a Badass, you will 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 start living the kind of life you used to be jealous of.

    The book had some good content however I feel it is repetitive with other books in the same genre. I wasn’t a huge fan of the delivery of some items but that’s likely personal preference. I did not love the narrator, who is the author. Hiring a professional narrator would have been ideal in my opinion.

    nicely read, but books like these remind us of what we don't have and not to be grateful or happy unless we are rich and doing what we love. this is unrealistic, and ultimately leads to dissatisfaction. this may be a really good book for you where you are now, but for me (now), I need to find books about being happy where I am and with what I have. could be a really good book for you though.

    Sheesh. This book sounds like every other self help book. "Here's my life, and how I became awesome. You should be like me!" Meh. If I was you, I sure wouldn't have done the stuff you did. I never would have gotten away with it. The book should have been titled something more like "My Life - It's Excellent to be ME!" Not much here but shameless self promotion. Her reading however, was on point. Maybe she missed her real calling.

    the book is awesome, and I like the way she.makes it so relateable, and helps dispel the annoying, part where so many of the self help Guru's start with how theu were living on the streets and look at them now, ugh, i like her realness. A+

    The book was fine but not great. The parts about money were a little nonspecific and uninspiring. And some of the mis-pronunciations ( The word etc. for example) in the narration were hard to take.

    She started a band called "crotch" this alone makes her cool in my book. Not to mention that's frickin hilarious. Enjoying this one. Only a third through but it's inspiring and entertaining.

    One more self help book. The same as thousands of others. Nothing new or original. Gratitude journaling etc, etc. We've all heard it all.

    I really wanted this book to be good and I thought the Frank nature of the title would break it down and allow a basis of cutting through the nonsense and just speaking openly... As I'm listening to it it reminds me of that skit on Saturday night live and we can update called something like the girl you wish you wouldn't start a conversation with at a party. This is the same information as The Secret number of other books but I've listened to accessing the source energy blah blah blah got it... And as far as the informal way that it's presented I thought it would enjoy it comes across crass and unprofessional actually and I'm a pretty informal Duke sorry I didn't like it I'm going a step listening now...another credit gone-

    I love it when authors read their own books - the passion, the authenticity and their personality have a fabulous chance to shine. This book is one that I will listen to over and over and over again and still learn new lessons. Believing.

    You Are A Badass was an inspiring and relative read to listen to. The Author's narration was assertive and informative without being too preachy. I loved this tone of voice because when I listen to an audiobook, I want to process the information read to me without questioning the author's points of the story. Jen Sincero incorporated her world of travel, coaching, and being a parent into life lessons that all of us need. If you haven't read my other book reviews, you probably didn't know that I'm on a journey of self-improvement. The biggest part of my self-improvement journey is reading a lot of books that will force me to take action in my life. I don't want you to believe that I'm reading and listening to books to sound like I'm being productive. I'm doing it because I really want to change. In life we all chase dreams, aspirations, etc. All I want is to be the best version of myself or the Badassier version of myself. Is Badassier a word? Oh well, it will be today. This book is a must-have for anyone who is hiding behind the badass that lives within them. I love how blunt yet well-worded the author is in the novel. It sounds like she is calling you out on your shit, which is something we all need. We need that voice telling us to stop making excuses, stop procrastinating, and stop accepting the life that you know you don't want. My favorite part of this book was the chapter titled "Your Brain Is Your Bitch". Profanity aside, this statement is true. Our mind is what we make it and so is our reality. This chapter calls out our negative thoughts that we create and turn into our reality. My favorite quote from this chapter is "To think what you want, is to think the truth". This quote means we have the power to think our truth. It hit me hard in the chest because I am very guilty of thinking negative thoughts when things don't go my way. Instead of bellyaching about not being where I want to be as a "successful" writer, I should think like I'm already living the dream. We artist often refer to ourselves as "struggling artist" because we don't have enough funds to make up the paychecks we bust our tails working for at fulltime jobs we really don't want. This mindset often leads to praying for our "big break". This book taught me that I shouldn't wait to feel that rush in my life of pursuing my dreams, I should believe that I'm already in this place. By thinking this way, my life has become a lot less disappointing because I created my own reality, not the one everyone wants me to see. Believe and watch the Universe respond. Some other tips, I've learned from this author is connecting with source energy. It doesn't matter what religion you practice, tapping into a higher power is important to our mentality. I also learned that the way we think sends messages to the universe. If we remain in a mindset of failure, the universe won't reward us with success. I am a firm believer in God, so tapping into source in energy is actually talking to him, writing letters to him, or meditating every day. I noticed whenever I am speaking to my lord, the weight and worry vanishes. You can't buy that kind of love. The only part of the book that I didn't grasp was the chapter about hiring other people to do your work when you don't have the time. I specifically didn't care for this part because I'm not in the position to incorporate this lesson in my life, but it did make sense. Since reading this book, I've been more motivated to manifest in a clear mindset with confidence. I strongly believe that this book is one top 3 self-help books I've fallen in love with thus far this year. I've listened to this book twice, but I will listen to it again because the more I listen to it, the more it will stick to my brain,  which will create better habits. Do you know what that means? A better me. Listen to You Are A Badass in your car, at the gym, or before you go to bed. It's time to unleash your inner Badass because he/she rules!
