    If you read atomic habits then most of the information here is not new. But I love how Jen Sincero has a way of putting things in perspective, from a woman’s point of view and the many many quotable moments scattered throughout the book. I also loved the emphasis of the important role that identify plays when changing out habits. And for us challenge lovers there is a 21 day guide to get you started..

    Not the best book on habits. Not by a long shot! Jen Sincero, from the past, has had some things to say on money and motivation; the way she says them is something else. Half the time there is profanity, trying really hard to be silly and perhaps liked, but the opposite effect is had in this book where people are actually reading to change their bad habits or form good ones. It would be nice to have her take something serious (especially a book of this matter), instead of souping-up a book before Not the best book on habits. Not by a long shot! Jen Sincero, from the past, has had some things to say on money and motivation; the way she says them is something else. Half the time there is profanity, trying really hard to be silly and perhaps liked, but the opposite effect is had in this book where people are actually reading to change their bad habits or form good ones. It would be nice to have her take something serious (especially a book of this matter), instead of souping-up a book before the holidays to make a quick buck. Some things she says don't make any sense as if her mind couldn't quite comprehend what she was trying to put out there on page. For instance, there is a matter presented when creating your new identity is of import to stray away from a bad habit. Take for example "I am not an alcoholic nor do I like the taste of that damaging substance." That is something for an identity of someone trying to form a new persona with a new habit. That was her leading point and made sense--fine. But then she introduces Janice in Alcoholic Anonymous where Jen Sincero highlights a "good example" (terrible example) of Janice showing a case-in-point of a new identity by stating “Hi, I’m Janice, and I’m an alcoholic". And Jen applauds this as saying that Janice is doing great by identifying with alcoholism. What? The rush for the holidays, I tell you. It seems that books coming out in November or December are to be held off, in your part, until some honest reviews convince you otherwise. This book was okay, but it regurgitated that which we already know if you've ventured down inspirational works. There was nothing new, and mostly took some time to read for the extra stories that were played off as silly, but more annoying than anything else, as I have to read through the brambles of words to get to the main resources that would help to form habits. A more succinct book can be found elsewhere. This is not a top pick from me to you. I would skip it if possible, unless you are a huge fan of hers, then please show your support. I admit it is a tough job to write a book. It takes courage and time. But still, we have opinions and mine is to go read something more powerful. Annotations from Kindle Edition: L.88) Start cultivating your new habit with a clean slate, focusing on the exciting new life that awaits you, as opposed to letting failures you’ve experienced in the past cloud your confidence. Who you desire to become is not only available to you but you’re meant to become this upgraded version of yourself, otherwise, you wouldn't have the desire in the first place and you sure as hell wouldn’t be bothering with this book. L.239) Our beliefs, thoughts, and words are also habits, habits that inform the way we perceive the world around us, mold our identities, and, yes, take the actions we take. One of the main reasons we fail to stick to new good habits and ditch negative ones is that we focus on changing what we’re doing (or not doing) without also making sure that we embrace this habit as a new and valuable part of our identity. N) The point of identity, which is to say that we identify with a person such as not smoking, means that we do not perform that action as it is not attached to us any longer in form identification: I don’t identify as a smoker; I am not a smoker Yet the author doesn’t make sense in sharing an irrelevant story about a woman who identifies herself as an alcoholic (“Hi, I’m Janice, and I’m an alcoholic”). And Jen Sincero goes on to say that this is the first crucial step by saying that you love something negative? She didn’t make her point intelligently and this came off as a person who doesn’t understand her subject matter. L.277) Human beings are scared shitless of change. Change dismantles the “known” and pulls our sense of security out from under us. Change opens up a never-before-experienced void of possibility that could actually be, and oftentimes is, way more awesome than the known experience we’re clinging to. L.325) When I finally decided that I was going to heal my relationship with money, I did everything I could think of crawl out of my hole--I read books about wealth consciousness, went to money-making seminars, too classes, hired coaches--but one of the most profound things I did was change who I was being. I forced myself to stop identifying as a broke-ass loser and to start identifying as someone who made money effortlessly. L.410) Pulling back and taking stock of your habits, your beliefs, your thoughts, your identity, your words, and your actions is some of the most important work you can do, because it get you out of victim mode and puts you in control of your life. L.1007) Write a day-in-the-life scenario for both versions, from getting out of bed, making your coffee, getting dressed: what stresses are running through your mind as the sad-sack you? What are you excited about as you move through your day as the upgraded you? Paint a real, detailed picture of each version of your life to remind yourself that they’re both totally available to you depending on what you choose to decide. L.1364) When temptation rears its head, because you are so no-nonsense and have already identified as the person you are becoming, the things you used to enter into negotiations with do not compute anymore. Beware of the negotiation the moment it appears, lock into the perception of yourself as the fabulous creature that you are. Do not negotiate with temptations. L.1527) Rituals can prove beneficial such as lighting a candle or playing soft music while doing a tasking activity. L.1685) Remember that your desires were given to you because they’re meant for you. Remember that you were given the means to make and manifest these desires by believing in the not yet seen, by focusing your thoughts and words on the hollerings of your heart instead of your fears. L.1883) You have the power and choice to become anybody you choose to become. I mean, think about that--that is one hell of a gigantic birthday present from the Universe. Practice being grateful that you get to make conscious choices, that you’ve experienced temporary failure so you could learn from it. L.1939) The successful credit their success to repeatedly leaping over hurdles; to being the last person standing; to rebuilding when it all falls apart; to turning a deaf ear to the naysayers; to refusing to quit; ever, no matter how gnarly or boring or humiliating things get. L.2107) It is usually the stuff you want to do the least that changes your life the most. END

No matter who or what is around you, if you remain positive and stay true to yourself, all will be well in YOUR world. We will consider adding this title to our Self Help collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

    I like Jen's first few books but this one feels like a real stretch. If you want a great book on habits read ATOMIC HABITS. This book is really more about boundaries and 21 days of suggestions or cheerleading to stick with your habits....not a lot of science here.

    I have a morning routine – a habit, if you will. I get up, take a pill, get some coffee, give the cat his ocean fish, make the bed, then sit in my chair with coffee and book in hand under a blankie and read until sevenish, when I then get up to exercise and start my day. While reading Jen’s new book, I started cataloguing the above habits as instructed, I looked in my lap and realized someone/something else in my life has habits and is in the process of creating a new habit as well. Tiggy. The o I have a morning routine – a habit, if you will. I get up, take a pill, get some coffee, give the cat his ocean fish, make the bed, then sit in my chair with coffee and book in hand under a blankie and read until sevenish, when I then get up to exercise and start my day. While reading Jen’s new book, I started cataloguing the above habits as instructed, I looked in my lap and realized someone/something else in my life has habits and is in the process of creating a new habit as well. Tiggy. The ocean fish eating, fur ejecting, outdoor feline that is slowly working his way towards being an inside cat is the Habit King. (By the way – I use the term outdoor cat loosely. He has 3 beds in a heated garage, plus a loft in the barn when he decides to actually go outside.) Tiggy has made a habit of eating afore mentioned fish in my laundry room at 5:00 AM by scratching the door down and howling in the garage until we let him in. He does this daily and will not be detoured by stomping, yelling, squirting, or any form of threat to make him go away. His persistence, his habit, has paid off. He gets fed in the laundry room every morning. His new habit is to finish breakfast, crawl up on my lap, curl his body into my blankie and happy feet his way to a blissful nap while I read and drink coffee. You see, Tiggy knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it with the tenacity of Jen Sincero teaching the rest of us how to practice Badassery to the fullest level. Tiggy learns by repetition as well as receiving attention – positive and even negative – and I think we do too, which Jen points out in many different ways in this book. I have fallen off the habit wagon and this book came just in time to kick me in the ass and stop running along side of said wagon. I am on day 3 of practicing 3 habits. Ambitious? Probably, but they are as important to me as ocean fish and my lap are to Tiggy, and that is what will make them stick. This book held some great reminders and it also offered some new things I hadn’t heard before. Jen Sincero has been kicking my ass for years, and if you have the courage to buy her books, she can kick yours too!

    For my friends looking to 2021 as an opportunity for a "New Year, New You", I would add this book to your toolbelt! ⁠ ⁠ "Badass Habits" by @jensincero is an amazing complement to "Tiny Habits" by @bjfogg that I have shared about last week.⁠ ⁠ Both books provide incredible insight about how we can create habits to become our highest selves.⁠ ⁠ “Tiny Habits” is awesome in that it really focuses on habits that you WANT to create, not necessarily those we "need" or "should" create.

Also, Tiny Habits focuses on adding on the new habit to an already established habit or activity, making the habit tiny (scaling it back or making it smaller), and then celebrating the heck out of the process.⁠ ⁠ “Badass Habits” focuses on a lot of the same ideas and concept as “Tiny Habits” but also includes the Jen Sincero flair of storytelling and lots and lots and lots of examples. Also, Jen includes a step by step 21 day process to work on creating a specific habit. (Tiny Habits encourages creating 3-6 new tiny habits at a time)⁠ ⁠ Both books are amazing and I highly recommend them both for anytime, but knowing New Years is a popular time to examine one's life and work on ways become one's highest self, the sooner you order them and read them, the more prepared you will be to tackle this New Year.⁠ ⁠ BTW I also recommend the two other Badass Books by Jen Sincero. All three are great to listen to via audible and have in hard copy to reference as well. Clearly I am a big fan 😄⁠

    I still love Sincero’s first entry in this series, “You Are a Badass.” I found it to be a really refreshing take on self-help and the Law of Attraction. I’ve stayed with her writings since then, picking up most of her new entries in that same series. That brings me to this one. While it doesn’t break a ton of new ground, in general, it fits her brand and personality well and ties together some of the lessons put forth in her previous books.

While it doesn’t break a ton of new ground, in general, it fits her brand and personality well and ties together some of the lessons put forth in her previous books. As the title suggests, this one is all about habits. Here, Sincero details how we can make new ones, why we don’t always follow through with desired behaviors, and what we can do to better set ourselves up with habit creation. Throughout the narrative, she talks about mantras, beliefs, and identity shifts. Those things, in my mind, were all strong complements to the subject at hand and helped the reader make better sense of what she was discussing. By the end, one should fully understand the ins and outs of habit formation and see some of the mistakes he or she made in the past in regard to getting aspirational habits to stick. It’s a good read and one that extends the brand well. I just could’ve done without her “feel it, see it, love it, believe it” mantra being repeated ad nauseam. -Brian Sachetta Author of “Get Out of Your Head”

The advice in this book is nothing life changing, many other books have done similar things better, but Jen is just really funny and relatable. She also sprinkles in some true stories from her readers, which I've always found helpful. There is a bit of a journaling aspect to this book, where towards the end the reader is supposed to keep a 21 day journal and check in with the book daily which I did NOT do (honestly I just bought this book to support Jen), but it seems helpful enough, and I liked her process of finding a mantra that really spoke to her. In the end, if you want a fun self help book, this is it. If you want a book that will change how you think about creating and keeping habits, get Atomic Habits.

She uses techniques taken from the Law of Attraction where visualization of your goal takes the utmost priority when making large habitual changes in one’s life. She breaks down the barriers to common issues with boundaries, negative self talk, and other bad habits that need breaking before starting new habits that help one succeed. Sincero’s practical and enthusiastic brand makes change sound easy to the listener, and she narrates this audio rendition with her signature raspy and confident voice. She’s known for her dry wit combined with no nonsense truth telling, and as she tells the listener how to change their habits, it’s almost impossible not to agree along with her. In a few anecdotes, she relates her mom and dad’s wisdom for good habits, taking on their vocal cadence and timbre with hilarious results. Sincero’s voice, unflappable, wry, and fully committed to badassery, will inspire many listeners to change their habits for the better.

    A younger friend turned me on to Sincero, who's quote "stay flexible or else you are screwed" makes the short list of my personal life-changing sayings. She is my age, but has always read like she's a millennial & her jargon and very specific culture references make me feel I'm not her target audience.

The book is an excellent mish-mash of all the other 21-day-to-change-your-life books out there with Jen's own brash, humorous voice as your own personal cheerleader. I love her examples, her quotes, and her big ol' splashes of profanity. I read it last week and I'm still riding my high of enthusiasm toward my new self and the promise I made to me. I'm a self-help book junkie. This one really stands out in the crowd & I'd recommend you BUY, because as Zig Ziglar, the king of self-help motivation once said, "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing – that's why we recommend it daily."

    This book was the perfect way to jumpstart a new year! I've read several books about habits that are way more sciency and heady - but as Jen says, the point of this book isn't to give you more information ABOUT habits - it's to actually start implementing them. The first half was focused on figuring out the unhelpful identities we believe about ourselves (ex: I'm not a morning person, I'm not disciplined, I'll never be fit, this is who I am and I'll never be able to change it.)

She then gives a ton of helpful tips to help you overcome those negative mindsets that sabotage us. As she points out, if you have a fighting chance of actually changing your habits, you have to BELIEVE you can. So a good part of this book is showing you how to believe that you can change. The second half of the book is broken down into 21 tips to do over the course of the next 21 days as you actually implement your first habit change. From a really helpful guide to how to write the perfect mantra, to tips on how to overcome your negotiations with yourself (ex: I'll just skip today, it's no big deal), to taming your triggers and cultivating confidence, everything was incredibly helpful and I'd definitely recommend this as a quick kick-in-the-pants read!

This book is an awesome follow-up to those because this one helps you to get the right mindset and create positive habits through different stages like a trigger, sequence, repetition, ease, patience, and identity, which all makeup habit-forming behaviors. Jen outlined a couple of steps, four different parts of this, which made it even harder for me to pick my habit. One line sticks out: "Pick habits that would give you a sense of being the person you're meant to be, a sense of empowerment, an improved quality of life, and a sense of accomplishment."

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Really constructive book. My main takeaways: Habits create the person you are and the life you want in so many ways... 1. Keep a regular routine. The more consistent, the easier it will be mentally and physically. 2. Put yourself in an environment of things and people that make it easier and more fun to stick to your routine 3. Identify with the kind of person who is good at doing the things you want to do.

I’ll likely read this again early next year- would be an ideal New Years read.

    I enjoyed this book. It had a few good nuggets in it; especially about how your self-talk can influence whether or not you stick to habits. Some of the advice was just good in general, not just necessarily in relation to habits. I have to say that I did not work through this day-by-day for 21 days as the book suggests you do, and read it over two days instead. I found that a lot of the tips in the 21 days section seemed repetitive and it got a little dull in that area. I feel like the first 25% I enjoyed this book.

    "Badass Habits" delivers typical funny-as-hell, self-helpy content from Jen Sincero. In it, she repeats a lot of her personal development messaging from her previous Badass books. But obvs, this has a bent on habits. In fact, she wants you to make one new habit/goal become a reality. And she gives you a super, short and totally doable 21-day outline on how to accomplish your new habit. If you've never read any other Badass books, this is a great starter.

    Of course, another stellar book per usual. I couldn't wait to read this book. Although I do get the same kind of feel that I did with the Badass Everyday book - short, sweet and to the point. I feel like it was missing some meat but good enough to be satisfied. I love her humor and style of writing. Feels like she is writing to you personally. It was also very helpful and timely for me bc I need help with breaking and making some habits asap. Very much recommended! Thanks Jen! Of course, another stellar book per usual.

    In truth there's nothing much here that wasn't in her earlier Badass books, and the 21 day plan seems slightly skewed and like it's supposed to be read in one sitting not one a day (like, she only suggests keeping track of the habits on day 3, when the sensible thing on a 21 day programme is surely to track from the start). But I like her no-nonsense style and call to action approach, and the book is a fast, easy read that is perfect for my attention-diminished pandemic brain.

    This might be an ok book if it was your first book around habits but I wouldn’t recommend it. In my opinion it perpetuates a toxic mindset of food is bad and use shame and negative self talk to achieve what you want. It has the feel of being written 10 years ago before intuitive eating and seeking therapy/coping tools to sort out your roadblocks was a thing. I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed the author/narrator- I just didn’t like a lot of what she said.

    Another great entry into the Badass series of self-improvement books! If you like your life improving tips with a somewhat snarky attitude and no nonsense style, then this is for you. This includes an overview of how to either lock in new habits or rid yourself of old ones as well as a 21 day step by step plan to make it happen. Highly recommended for anyone looking to make some positive changes in their life.

    Thought this was a good book on the subject that was just different enough from Gretchen Rubin’s ‘Better Than Before’ and ‘Atomic Habits’ by James Clear. I thought where this book excelled was the questions Jen poses throughout the book. Really thinking about and answering them should help you get results.

    This is a great book on habit development. Jen Sincero provides great tips and relatable stories on how to break bad habits and replace them with good ones. She even provides a 21 Day Breakdown on how to develop new habits and stick to it. While the particular insights are not revolutionary, it was a great read with her humor and some swearing involved.

    Most books on habits are similar, but I like the way she presents it and the examples are relatable. Establishing a mantra to repeat (and a mantra to remember the mantra) is helpful to change internal script & create new narrative about who you are (with visualizing/writing about who that is) The 21 day plan reinforces how to change habits through mindful actions & challenges current beliefs.

    The author has a brilliant way of connecting with her reader. We all have good and bad habits and this book explains how we can retrain our brains to create good habits. I love the author's writing style, as her approach of staying positive made me believe that I can conquer my bad habits. The author has a brilliant way of connecting with her reader.

    While the advise is not bad, it really it is not great. Aggressive attitude with a "get it done" suggestions. Much better self help books. The title and the idea of being a badass is attention grabbing. While the advise is not bad, it really it is not great. Aggressive attitude with a "get it done" suggestions.

    An awesome book that is funny and practical about starting and keeping a new habit. I want to recommend this to everyone I know. Short and meaningful. Write a mantra and say it out loud until your own it is my big take away.

    Another winner from Jen Sincero. Like her other books, her latest is inspiring, motivating, and delivered in a hilarious, down-to-earth manner. A great read for anyone who wants to make positive changes in their life, and appreciates delivery that's void of pretentiousness. Another winner from Jen Sincero.
