Why You Have to Read "You Are A Badass" (Key Takeaways and Quotes!)

This post contains affiliate links.

In the past few months, I have purchased You Are A Badass at least 5 times. Every time I buy it, I end up giving it to someone within a few days, practically welling up with tears of self-reflection saying “This book will... Change. Your. Life. Someday soon you will wake up in giddy disbelief that you get to be you!”

Give it as a gift to yourself (because you deserve this!) and then give a copy to your best friend, your co-worker, your friend who is hung up on her latest break-up, anyone who loves self-help books, and the people in your life who aren’t living up to the potential that you know they have!!! So basically, give it to everyone.

That’s just how much I love this book.

Jen Sincero has certainly tapped into the motherlode of wisdom to give us this life-changing 254 page guide to living your greatest life.

There is SO much to learn from this book, so really just go buy it, read it, and bask in its awesomeness. 

Here is just a glimpse of the amazing things this book will help you do:

  • Identify limiting thoughts and beliefs

  • Understand where you fit into this amazing universe we live in

  • Create an attitude of gratitude and manifest the things you want in life

  • Unlock your potential, stop doubting your greatness, and start living an awesome life!!! (Didn’t you read the subtitle of the book?)

If you aren’t already convinced (or you just want more You Are A Badass content in your life! 🙋), I have chosen a few of my favorite quotes and the lessons I learned from them.

You can download all of these quotes (plus more!!) at the end of the post 😍

“You need to go from wanting to change your life to deciding to change your life.”

As humans, we want to do lots of things. We want to get a new job, feed ourselves healthier food, or go on our dream vacation. Many times these wants stay exactly that… wants. Sincero says that we need to start deciding to do things. This is when the magic happens (and also when things actually get done). Like how I wanted to write this blog post telling how great this book is, it stayed in my draft folder for months, until I decided to just start writing the thing and here it is!

How will you decide to change your life?

“If you want to live a life you’ve never lived, you have to do things you’ve never done.”

If what you have been doing is not giving you the results you want, you’ve got to do something else! Think about the version of you who has the thing that you want (the car, the job, the award, the relationship, etc).

What does that version of you do differently than you right now?

Write it down and then go do those things!

“Everything you do along your journey contributes to where you’re going.”

When something doesn’t go the way you intended, it’s all a part of the journey. I admit, this one can be hard to swallow. We hear it all the time… “This breakup may be hard, but it is best for you in the long run” or “It sucks that your job offer fell through. I bet you’ll find an even better company really soon.” 

But when you look back on it, it usually ends up being true. Your next boyfriend could be everything you ever hoped for and your next job offer might be a dream career opportunity. Everything that happened before that was a lesson in things you did or didn’t want and it can help you find something even better in the future.

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

You tell it Jen. If you don’t give to yourself, you won’t have much left to give to the world. The best thing you can do to improve the world is to be the absolute best you that you can be. Think about it… if you are too busy to feed yourself, you’re probably not going to be the nicest to the people around you. Hangry people tend to be a bit grouchy!

So, feed yourself, feed your soul, and go buy You Are A Badass to “stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life"!
