Unfu*k Yourself Book Review
I love this book!
Interesting how…the books I really like seem to either have cussing in the title or cussing in the actual book.
What I liked is that this is one of those tell-it-like-it-is, blunt and direct books. It didn’t feel like a “feel-good” book, but it doesn’t beat you down either. It helps you become aware of how much you beat yourself down and is really big on self-talk, and of course DOING. It focuses on taking action despite what you’re thinking.
It also feels like one of those books I have to keep reading over and over to internalize the messages. It’s a short read. In Audible it took me a little over 3 hours to listen to.
When I say I “like” a book, usually I mean there’s a lot I resonate with and that is directly applicable to me. Sometimes I might hear or read something in a book that stops me dead in my tracks because it hits so hard. That’s a message I need to keep, because most likely I’ll be able to use it to progress and move forward. It hits hard because it causes a shift in my thinking and this book had quite a few of those.
Some of the chapter titles alone should let you know what you’re in for:
- “I Got This”
- “I Embrace The Uncertainty”
- “I Am Not My Thoughts, I Am What I Do”
- “I Am Relentless”
- “I Expect Nothing And Accept Everything”
Again, I know to internalize some of these messages that haven’t been internalized already it’s going to take some repetition hearing them and experiencing them.
