Phew! Finally a self-help book that doesn't require index cards and invites you to read what you need!
I love how it is divided into easily readable chapters that can be read in any order. It's kind of like being on a quick phone call with your trusted best friend who just lays it out there. You hang up and think "Okay, I can do that!"
It's inspiring and motivating.
I've read a lot of self-help books over the years and have done a lot of work on myself and there's plenty in here for even the most 'enlightened' among us! And it's fun when she swears. :)
Andrea wants you to love yourself and live your best life AND she's going to call you out on your BS when you're not. Be prepared to change...for the better!
And a caveat - I'm not normally a 'kick-ass' or 'bad-ass' or 'boot-camp' kind of person...it exhausts me just thinking about it. But "Living the Life You Deserve"?? I'm down with that. And this book delivers.

I must admit, I tend to be a self-help junkie. Not on purpose mind you, but because I truly have a desire to change who I am. Unfortunately, I haven't really had a clear vision as to who I want to be once I've made the changes. That's where Ms. Owen's book comes in-- I need to be, wait for it...ME. That's right, ME.

Sadly, I've never had a clear vision as to who I am until I actually participated in the exercises she gives in the book. One of the chapters, "Uncover your Personal Values," has you list out the values that are important to you. It sounds simple enough, but as you actually start to list items, it becomes harder because you don't have anyone whispering in your ear to navigate these items that make you happy.

Another exercise I particularly liked was in the chapter, "Take Inventory of your Non-Negotiables." These are the things in your life that when missing, means you have a really bad day. I think this list was a little easier to make for me because of my OCD tendencies. (Everything sets me off if they don't go according to my plan. Lol.) All joking aside, in her book, Ms. Owens states that 3 of these nonnegotiables need to be present in your life on a regular basis or things start to get off balance. (Talk about an eye-opener.)

The hardest chapters to read in this book were the ones dealing with perfectionism, letting go of the past, and living your passions. I mentioned that I'm OCD, right? While I've broken myself of many of my tendencies, I still have a plan as to how things/others need to be, and when they don't, I tend to freak out. I guess I need to take Elsa's advice and "let it go." However, living your passions is extremely difficult for me.

Andrea Owen has written a wonderful handbook on having a kick-ass life. Each chapter covers a topic that most of us struggle with on a daily basis. Her approach to each challenge is clear and direct. Andrea speaks to you in this book as if she were your own coach helping you through. I highly recommend you pick up a copy and turn to the section you are currently dealing with. You will find great advice as well as a little butt kicking when needed.

amazing..Andrea Owen is awesome and really knows what she is talking about. I have read so many self help books and this one just felt like it was perfect for me. Her online download ebook and audio book are also amazing. Her advice has changed my life and helped me start the journey of getting over a really bad and painful time in my life. This book is so helpful and I feel like she is talking right to me. I would recommend this book very highly

I really enjoyed reading this book. The author is quite hilarious & made me laugh many times! It is a simple read kind of book but what she writes about is the truth & along the lines of common sense. It did help me to get rid of some BS and negativity in my life which was very much needed. If you're wanting a super in-depth book for personal development this isn't the book I would recommend but it's a great starting point.

Best book I have ever read! Covers everything you need to know about your life. It is like Andrea Owen is talking to you the way she writes so it makes it easy to read, understand and remember what she's talking about, no mumbo jumbo. Recommend for anyone and even went to her site for more information I liked it so much.

Andrea Owen brings us a great book, quick to read, but deep and takes a long time to soak in the lessons. There's the usual get out of your comfort zone and get over your ex chapters. Then there's the strange ones, the ones that make you pause and wonder if you really can do them, like telling 5 people your secret dream, or ditching your drama addiction? Can that really be done? If so, how? Read chapter 24 to find out!

Other topics are more serious but still as important. Chapter 20, You can't "Feel Fat" or Chapter 33, Move out of victimhood. I know I battle with those among other health and body issues. What about you?

I think my favorite topic is Chapter 34, You are always worthy of love. We are all there, every day and every moment. I hope you have a lovely day.

I received my copy of this book for free through the NetGalley Professional Reader program. My review is my own opinion as always.
