I'm excited to be kicking off the blog tour for Live Life Like You Give A F**K! by Nicola Findlay. The book is a more modern and kickass version of a self help book and one I thoroughly enjoyed.
Live Life Like You Give A F**K!
The No Nonsense Philosophy for Smart Girls who Want to Smash It!
Boss a bitch? Diet a hot mess? Broke after payday? Ghosted on tinder?
If life feels like a constant hangover why not take five f**king minutes for yourself to decide what you really want. Slam on the brakes, kick off your heels and unplug from the social media circus.
Stop Surviving - Start Thriving
Live Like You Give A F**K will show you how to create the future you want, not the one that’s been shoved down your throat. It will shake and wake you from the hypnosis of modern living. The triple shot of empowerment, confidence and motivation will unleash the badass in you.
Nicola Findlay is the straight-talking, bold, coaching diva who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. If you ask her advice about your lame partner she’ll give you a bitch slap, tell you to raise your standards and get rid of that loser.
She’s your best friend, your enemy, your punchbag and your cheerleader. Some people call her a diva, some people call her a badass bitch but whichever you decide you will get results.WARNING: If you’re afraid of a few swear words on a page put this book down and go cry to your Mama. I’m not here to offend anyone. I’m here to tell you how to rock your world, and because I’m so passionate about it I’ll be shouting and swearing from the rooftops.
Well, this book is certainly not like any other self help book I have ever read! It's the kind of book that takes you by the shoulders and gives you a short, sharp shake. I have to admit the swearing took me aback for the first page or so, not because I was offended (trust me I can swear like a sailor!), just the fact that I'm not used to reading that kind of language. It certainly makes an impact and I sat up and paid attention. As the book goes on, it does level out and the swearing becomes more conversational rather than in your face.
There are some really useful and actually quite powerful exercises throughout and ones that I will continue to use going forward. However if you are reading the e-book version like myself, then be armed with paper and pen as you can't utilise the lines designed for you to write on. I love stationery so I always have a notebook and pen to hand, so this wasn't a problem for me.
I wasn't sure what to expect before reading Live Life Like You Give A F**K! but I was incredibly motivated to make goals and get stuff done (which wasn't the best idea at midnight led in bed haha) but I made sure I made my lists so I knew what I had to do or where I had to start. I'm definitely looking forward to some of the changes that I want to make and I'm excited about my goals knowing I'm making a start instead of just thinking about them.
Live Life Like You Give A F**K! is aimed at women, but genuinely the advice given is perfectly valid for anyone, so don't let that put you off giving it a try.
I read the book all in one go, with breaks taken to write my lists and goals etc, but it is perfectly set out so that you can dive in and out at your own leisure. You can also go back to different chapters if you want to go back over anything at any time, which I can see myself doing in the future.
There are things that I know won't work for me, but as the author says (paraphrasing) "dump that shit like a bag of crap". Everything doesn't work for everybody, so you can choose what work for you and ignore the bits that don't. Having that freedom to decide whether I was going to use what was suggested was really good and it actually made me put more thought into each exercise as I wanted to decide properly as to whether I would use it or not.
Overall an excellent book and one I will be recommending (and gifting) to my friends.
I gave this book 4.5 stars.
