Found this book through another book I was listening to…don‘t remember why 🤔🤔 Plus side, it‘s very short only 6 hours at regular speed. The info is pretty basic but maybe how Sincero presents it will resonate with you. A LOT of focus on manifesting if that‘s your jam.

#30daysOfSelfHelpBooks
It's time to reinvent one self! I have vibrated so low for such a long time. This year I was even worse. I lied to myself a lot and subjected myself to toxic environments and people. All that can be attributed to my low self esteem, plus not knowing who I really was. This is a pact to myself to do better, to be better and to live my best life. I'll enter 2022 brand new! I'll be reborn emotionally and intellectually.

I did not like this book. I almost DNF‘d this book multiple times and some of Jen‘s concepts, such as “Source Energy” were confusing and hard to follow. I also disliked how Jen implied “just changing your mindset” will cure your depression, and I ended up skipping through chapter 24 because I couldn‘t stand that chapter. Overall, Jen had some good points but a portion of her advice is just dumb and/or is not practical for most people.

3.8/5. Changed my perspective on a couple things but overall definitely has advice I‘ve given.

This is so powerful for me. I get too worked up with presurre at work and this whole adulting that it sometimes makes me not see all the wonderful possibilities. Thanks for the reminder! ☺️

Ok so please trust me when I say that I am usually NOT into “self-help” stuff, but this book helped me through a really difficult time so I recommend it. I listened to it as an audio book first, then bought the hard copy so I can reread it and also so I could make notes etc. It‘s not so much that what she says is dramatically different but the way she says it and her own examples just really spoke to me. It might help someone else so I am sharing!

“If you want to live a life you‘ve never lived, you have to do things you‘ve never done.”
This quote spoke to me in many ways. We often find ourselves looking at other people‘s lives sayings “I wish I could be them”, “I want their life”, “look at how much fun they‘re having”, but we don‘t do anything about it. #LitsyReads #CurrentlyReading #HumpdayPosts

Not quite as many books as I'd hoped for but I'm still happy with the numbers. I was in a slump towards the end of the year. Here's to hoping 2021 is better.

This has been on my #TBR and taking up bookshelf space forever. Seemed like a good one to finish out the year with, and it was but it fell a bit short of the mark. While she shared a few good ideas and I felt moments of inspiration, overall the information was a bit dated and had too much woo-woo for me. I‘m glad I read (listened) to it but I‘m really glad to donate it and let it move in from my life.

"Wanting can be done sitting on the couch with a bong in your hand and a travel magazine in your lap.

Deciding means jumping in all the way, doing whatever it takes, and going after your dreams with the tenacity of a dateless cheerleader a week before prom night."

Re-reading this gem as I prepare for 2021.

1. My #Readolutions for 2021: read 100 books, budget with #PennyPerPage, keep up w/ SciManDan‘s book club, start a low key Booktube channel. The latter is more of a pipe dream, but still... 😅
2. Tagged. I don‘t do “self-help”, but it was a freebie, so I thought, “Eh, why not?” 😂🤣
3. Neal Shusterman, the Arc of a Scythe series looks SO good! Can‘t wait to start it! 😍

E readers and audio books are not my typical go to, but I when I have to spend 4 hours in the car for work travel then I appreciate the time to myself. I have read this book in the past but feeling like I need the reminder that this Girl Boss really is a Badass! #badass #girlboss #coo #audiobook

Started listening to this audiobook with my sister a couple weekends ago and finished it up today. Overall, I liked it and think she had some great messages/advice. I didn‘t always like some of her metaphors but I‘m hoping to keep at least some of her pointers in mind going forward

Book 28 of the year**

This felt like Prosperity Gospel for people who don't believe in God.

If you just believe hard enough in and pray to "source energy" it will all work out in your favor!

**not really, I still haven't caught up on my back log but I finished this and wanted to record my thoughts before they fade

I liked this book. However, I expected more from it, given the degree of hype surrounding it. I thought it had good points and a lot of common sense. Thoughts?

A sometimes interesting task on common ideas. I couldn‘t get on board with the whole “high frequency living” part, (wtf does that even mean?) which kind of cut me off from the rest. The writing style was sometime fun, but was repetitive and often wandered into gimmicky. #audioread

⭐️⭐️ This was a fast book which is one of the reasons I finished it. My other reason? Goodreads doesn‘t allow me to bail on books which I hate. So I read it. The only reason it didn‘t get one star was because there were a few small chunks of ok‘ness. Pretty sure this will be my worst book of the month.

effani For the future, you actually can create a shelf in goodreads that has the same status as read, to-read, and reading. Just go to the “edit shelves“ page, create your shelf, and check the “exclusive“ box. It's annoying that it doesn't come with a dnf shelf by default, but you totally can make one if you want it. 2y
krayoncolorz @effani good to know! It doesn‘t add it to the read as well? While annoying it would be nice. I have a hard time bailing on books as a person in general lol 2y
effani Nope! As long as you mark it exclusive, then it can't be on both that shelf and the read shelf.

I'm personally a big supporter of bailing on books if you aren't enjoying them. Life is too short!

Do you sense a theme going on here?? Since life is kicking my ass at the present moment. Needed some self help books and just motivation and inspiration to get me out of this funk called depression.

If anyone recommends any books for finding motivation and inspiration please leave the books below. I can use all the help at the moment. #selfhelp

AkashaVampie i havent read it but saw the movie for Brain On Fire. I really liked it 2y
Catherine_Willoughby I normally binge watch 80s teen flicks to brighten my day /week . They are so cheesy. A good piece of cheese is good for the soul 😁 Do what makes you smile , if that's putting on your favourite tune , buying a new book (just becauss cover is so pretty), binge watching your favourite show /movie or just cosying up with some ice cream . Its your thing. Whatever it is 2y

Haven‘t read a self help book in a long while. This seems like it may be a good choice. I like the writing style and the practical, funny and helpful advice. Haven‘t read much of it yet but I like the author‘s attitude and her approach to organizing and research.

Definitely listen to this as an audiobook, Jen is hilariously entertaining and motivating. She definitely makes you want to get your crap together and live the life you want to live. The greatest takeaway is the notion to stop making excuses and doubting your greatness and do whatever you want to do in this life.

This book won't be for everyone. While it wasn't a traditional self help book, it does have a lot of self help vibes, and at the time I read it, honestly, it was what I needed to hear. Jen Sincero uses blunt honesty and personal stories to basically get across that - sometimes shit happens. But we are all capable of moving on and shaking things up to improve our ways of thinking and our bad habits. I would like to read more by her 🤗
