In a time when I am finding myself in more and more uncomfortable situations I take her advice to heart. For instance, as an author and inventor of a new baby product I have begun to get offers to do interviews with the media. I was even recently contacted by a casting director to be on a reality show.
I typically don’t feel much like a bawse, so even the idea of speaking on camera freaks me out. I don’t even like to Skype or FaceTime with friends and family.
As these appointments approached, I tried desperately to remember her advice about expanding out of your comfort zone. I struggled to show some sort of personality while interviewing for the reality show. I then studied her words prior to having my first media appearance on a news talk show. While I don’t think I succeeded in appearing as even a fraction of a bawse on either occasion, at least I tried. As tempted as I was to cancel both appointments, I showed up and did them. As Ms. Singh points out, the first ten times she does anything she is horrible at it. But those first ten times are crucial in order for her to be successful the eleventh time. I recognize that these are experiences that will help me to grow as a person. You must seek out situations that make you uncomfortable.
Her book inspired me to start my own YouTube channel. Granted I can’t dance or sing (or perform in any way), but I can promote my books and products. I can also cook, so I’ve started my own weekly cooking “show”. It’s a start, anyway, and I can honestly say I was inspired by Lilly Singh.
Now if you'll please excuse me - I must go buy some colorful towels.
Ps I have both the hard cover and the audio book... try to order the hard cover because the quality of the book is genuinely amazing - beautiful photos, quality pages, vivid colors. Absolutely worth the shipping and handling price.
Update: I’ve reread it multiple times and have gotten a job where I can build a career as well as taken numerous certifions to help people in lives. Thank you for all the time and effort that was put into this amazing read.
"want a managment position". You have to put in the work and earn those things! They don't just get handed to you! Lilly knows that and explains it sooooooo well in this book.
Lilly changed my life when I started watching her YouTube videos almost 5 years ago. And now she's impacted me again with this beautiful gift. Do yourself a favor and read this book asap!
