Allmänna fakta




This book is a niche choice, catering to those who appreciate mantras and manifesting.

Fortunately, I resonate with these themes, making it an ideal read for me. I found it enjoyable and plan to revisit it on my journey towards cultivating positive habits.

This book is pretty much the same content as every other self-help book out there. And if we keep reading them, all this might finally sink in.

This book was recommended to me by a co-worker who swore it changed his life and that it would change mine. I wouldn't go that far, but this was an entertaining book that had some good points. Sincero's voice is casual, fun, and often on the mark. I also found she rambled quite a bit, and it distracted from her more poignant points. Overall, this was a mixed bag for me.
The biggest issue for me was that Sincero mixed up the psychological Id with Ego. The fact her editors didn't catch this concerns me. This is a pretty big and basic psychological tenet to get wrong, and it comes up in the second chapter. Admittedly, this probably biased me against her for the rest of the book. How can I take an author seriously who messes THAT up?
Also, self-help books just aren't my thing. I like nonfiction, but this just isn't my preferred genre. I'm sure someone else will love her personal approach and repeat her mantras like gospel the way my co-worker does. But, if you're not a self-help book kind of person like me, this won't convert you, and that's okay. :)

For the first half of this book. I was dubious I'd get anything out of it. Not because I didn't believe in Sincero's message--quite the opposite. I've been a self-help and personal development junkie for decades, and I'm quite familiar with the concepts she presents in these bite-sized chapters. Gratitude? Check. Positive thinking? Got it. Generosity? Sure thing.

So there I was, ho-humming my way through this book when I hit a chapter that made me sit up and take notice. Was it about some groundbreaking concept I'd never come across before? Nope. It was the chapter on commitment, or "The Almighty Decision," as Sincero called it. At this point in my life, I needed to be reminded of the power of truly committing to a goal. Not just trying, wishing, and hoping, but being dedicated to the pursuit of that goal with everything you've got. I took a ton of notes on that chapter. I put the book down, journaled, and created an action plan for myself. I realized why I hadn't been seeing the results I wanted and figured out ways to get back on track.

Later in the book, Sincero acknowledges that much of what she teaches is common sense, and states that "an epiphany is a visceral understanding of something you already know." Ultimately, that's where the strength of this book lies: in its ability to remind you of the Universal truths that can change your life, if only you decide to apply them.
