Readers will laugh their way through this book as Sicero uses her signature tough love, potty mouth humor to push the reader to examine the thought patterns holding them back in life.

My key Takeaways from “You Are a Badass" by Jen Sincero:

Takeaway #1 Live For Yourself, Not Others

How did you choose what you studied at college? How did you choose your current job? Why don't you spend all of your time doing the things that you love? Your answers highlight the fact that many of our choices in life are based on what others tell or recommend us to do, want us to do, or that we do to make others happy - what we actually want for ourselves very rarely enters into the equation but it's time to end this cycle and become badass, living life on your terms.

Takeaway #2 Negative Thoughts Hold You Back

What you believe about yourself is usually based on the messages you heard when you were a child such as 'people like us don't achieve great things', 'we're not rich people', or 'you'll never become anything'. Those messages became lodged in your subconscious mind over time and, because a small part of you thinks it's true, you remain in a 'Big Snooze' and don't pursue the things that could lead to your success. The 'Big Snooze' is like an overprotective parent that doesn't want you to leave the house and explore the world because they're fearful for you but thankfully, no matter your age you can wake up from what is holding you back.

Takeaway #3 Love Yourself

Stop comparing yourself to other people and start loving yourself. You can do this by creating your own mantras and repeating them to yourself as much as possible whether you're in the shower, driving to work, or waiting in a queue, things like 'I am beautiful', and 'I am capable of anything I set my mind to'. When you love yourself a bit more you'll be less afraid to do the things you truly want to do and care less about what people think of you which will give you the power to take life into your own hands.

Takeaway #4 Tap Into The Limitless Source of Power

Whether you're religious or not most people believe in some sort of higher power. This energy is everywhere but it vibrates at different frequencies – you're one frequency and the things you want are there own frequency too with the same frequencies attracting each other which is why we have the saying 'like attracts like'. When we're feeling down we are vibrating at a lower frequency which can draw more negative energy towards us resulting in a series of crises. However, you can learn to raise your frequency therefore attracting more good things into your life through the Law of Attraction and a daily meditation practice.

Takeaway #5 Take Action!

To overcome hesitation you need to stop judging others, to overcome excuses you need to be clear about your goal - if you find that your resolve is weak you may need to adjust your goal, ask yourself some tough questions about what you really want – when you find that thing that you truly want, you'll be able to overcome procrastination, hesitation, and fear head on through taking action combined with positive thinking.

Takeaway #6 Don't Give Up!

Often times people won't succeed because they give up too soon. Never quit, even after rejection. Learn from your mistakes and keep pushing forward ensuring you have solid routines in place, a strong circle of supportive friends, and the right environment for you to succeed. If you realize that your friends are holding you back, make new ones. If you realize that you live in the wrong area, move. Don't let anyone or anything distract you from creating a life you love.
