Book Jacket Summary:
In Girl, Stop Apologizing, #1 New York Times bestselling author and founder of a multimillion dollar company, Rachel Hollis sounds a wake up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people- whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee- instead of learning how to own who they are and what they want. With a challenge to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and believing in yourself.
Why I Chose This Book:
This book stuck out to me with the subtitle “a shame free plan for embracing and achieving your goals.” I’m always in pursuit of achieving new goals and pursuing my dreams, but that doesn’t come without a few doubts along the way. I haven’t necessarily done things in the “conventional order” and sometimes that takes a toll. In a world where I am constantly questioned and challenged for not “being where I’m supposed to be” even by my own standards
sometimes! most of the time- I’m hard on myself. It was refreshing to read a fresh, encouraging piece reiterating the facts that IT IS OKAY to do what is best for you, no matter what the order. Sometimes I need the extra boost to get up, get outside of my own head & get to work. My official take homes were- stop asking permission, go all in on your goals, set boundaries, be confident, grateful & persistent. This book was nothing revolutionary, but it’s nice to have the extra positive reinforcement and have it all in one relevant place that is a easy, quick read.
