Why I read it? I had seen this book EVERYWHERE, so it had to be good, right? I had never read a self-help book, and the title of this book made it seem more approachable somehow.
What is it all about? Jen Sincero explains how you need to look at yourself, your life, and really examine it. Are you doing what you want, or are you just constantly planning what you are going to do eventually? Are you making decisions because you think that’s what you should be doing, what your family expects you to do, or is it something you really want? She breaks down how you need to get out of your own head in order to live the life you want.
What caused me to pause? The main things I learned from reading this book are that nothing is ever going to be perfect, that living in the moment is important, and perseverance is a quality that all truly successful people have.
Add this to your reading list if… you need to dip your toe into the self-help world. Sincero is charming and straight forward, and the chapters are bite sized to keep you from being overwhelmed.
