This book aids the reader in reaching their long fought for desires and breaks down exactly how to do so, in a simple-to-follow but incredibly motivating 21 day guide. Despite already completing the book, I am still going to continue to follow this guide for at least 21 days and for as long as it takes to integrate my desired new habits into my daily routine. Asides from this step-by-step plan, this book also details exactly how to structure new habits, why you may have failed at doing so in the past, finding the meaning behind your wants, banishing negative and destructive self-talk that could be detrimental to them, and finding both peace and meaning in a manic world. I flew through these pages and found I started the days following my time within them as a more positive and focused individual. I already feel better in tune with my mind and am quicker to utilise the tools I have already garnered from this to banish anything that will steer me off the path towards greatness. This book alone would have been enough of a ‘new year, new me’ kick, but getting to experience others going through a similar transition, as part of an Instagram readalong group, added an extra inspiring element. We’ve all got this, going forward!

    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..

I was reading it as part of a month-long readalong with some amazing people, where we all were forming some badass habits. We even had Jen Sincero herself in our chat, as well as for a Live session on Instagram. Huge thank you to Tandem Collective and John Murray Press for organising this! Badass Habits “Our thoughts become our words, our words become our beliefs, our beliefs become our habits, and our habits become our realities.” If you want to form new badass habits, or replace your old bad habits, this is definitely the book you need! Through a step-by-step guide over 21 days, you will be in a completely different mindset and will be ready to tackle anything coming your way. My Thoughts: I will be honest with you, I am not a huge fan of self-help books. I find them very preachy, and quite often, I cannot relate to them, and end up with no outcome. But reading Badass Habits was such a different experience. I started reading it only with the goal to drink water more consistently, and I have managed to achieve so much more! Now I exercise daily, eat healthier food, drink water regularly and have also stopped biting my nails. I even started baking more often as well, and lost weight. Honestly, I feel like a completely different person! I loved Badass Habits because it’s not one of those preachy books. It actually contained so many practical examples and real-life tips that I could relate to so well. It focused mainly on how a habit is formed and how we can use that knowledge to make new (better) habits and replace bad ones with badass ones. Now, I feel like I have had these new habits all my life – they feel so natural to me, and that is what allows me to be able to take on new habits again, and keep improving. My favourite part was the part about excuses. We know ourselves the best and we can predict what excuses we are about to create for ourselves on this journey. And having this information, we can change our circumstances and not allow room for any excuses. This bit helped me so much! I could think of so many silly excuses that I have used often in the past. For example, I would skip an exercise because my favourite sports bra was not washed. So I got myself three more pairs of my favorite sports bra, so I can have one ready every day, while the other ones are being washed. Now I eliminated that possibility of an excuse, and it actually worked. I haven’t skipped a workout since I started reading this book. It’s so interesting what your mind can do, when you set it up for success. Badass Habits is a great book to challenge you to tackle on a new habit, or change a bad one for a better one in 21 days. It’s perfect for a “new year, new me”, but is also one of those books that will be useful to have with you at all times. There were many motivating quotes inside, that will bring enthusiasm, even though at some points, I wish more scientific knowledge and examples were included. I definitely recommend it, if you’re looking for a book to prompt you to change your life for the better, one habit at a time.

    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

    Badass Habits is the first book about habits I've read, and I extremely glad to say that I've gained a lot of useful information from this book. To begin with, now I know why I always failed to stick to the new habits. I still focus on taking necessary action, but I don’t put on board emotionally and mentally. Furthermore, the author emphasizes keeping track of the progress that we've made so we can see how far we've come.

This activity is so important as some habits take a while to produce the desired result, for, e.g., diet and exercise. If we keep track, we can strengthen ourselves from ignore the habits—my second failure point. Some other essential offers from this book are: 📖 Why we need healthy boundaries when it comes to creating new habits? 📖 A robust 21-step process to either anchor in your new habit or permanently banish an old one (21 Days to Badass Habits). 📖 Key elements involved in habit creation Five chapters in this book and the sequence are good enough to understand how to form a habit. The author well explained all the tips and provided some examples for our better understanding. Of course, I have some bad habits to ditch dan some applicable habits to succeed. And by reading this book, I got the basic knowledge about those topics. Overall, this book is such a great and valuable book to know about habits. I would love to explore more about habit by reading some of the related books I own. I highly recommend this book for those who do not succeed in keeping good habits in daily life 🙋🏻‍♀️ or wanna learn about habits, generally.

    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.

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!

    Not quite as good as her first book, “You are a Badass,” but my favorite book about habit change I’ve found so far! If you liked “You are a Badass” read this! If you haven’t read “You are a Badass” read that. This has a section that was to be read once a day for 21 days, but I never stick to that kind of thing so I read it all in about a week, and it was great! It helped me on my journey to stop late night snacking!

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.

(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 😄⁠

With the 21 day challenge included, there are constructive and easy to break down ways for you to build up a habit and make it stick and be sustainable. She has lots of great ideas, hints and tips that I found helped me pick up my habit. Filtered through the book are excerpts of people who have built up their habits successfully and it was really nice to see some real life examples. There is a great section on how to get past your ‘banana peels’, any reason to stop me from completing said habit. Alongside that there are also some great chapters on why you want to set up a habit and setting boundaries around them; which was a complete eye opener for me! Again there is lots of great information on how to work on personal boundaries and what kind of boundaries there are, something I really need to work on. Although I started this book in January when it's that time of year where we all try to make a change and it is a perfect read to do that, it can be picked up any time of the year and be read whenever you are ready to make those changes. I for one will be going back through it when I need a reminder or a boost to get started on a new habit! I loved being a part of the read along and having such a great group of readers all taking part with a variety of habits that were started from moving daily to drinking more water, my habit was to do some yoga or stretching for at least 15 mins daily. Whilst I missed a couple of days, the group were all so supportive of each other and helped everyone stay on track. I also loved that as part of the read along we had a group chat with Jen which was amazing and inspirational! Thank you so much to Tandem and to Jen Sincero for this opportunity to take part. 4.5/5

    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”

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.

    This book is truly excellent, and it’s worth taking the time to work through properly if you really want to change your habits. If you’ve read You Are A Badass you’ll be familiar with Jen’s style but expect bluntness, humour, and to be challenged. To get the best out of this book really take the time to engage in it properly. You can’t change habits overnight and this isn’t a book to read in one sitting. Instead, fully engage with the 21 day process that forms the second half of this book.

I don’t mind admitting I was sceptical about getting a notebook and doing the activities, and particularly sceptical of writing a mantra, but I soon realised that if I was serious about benefitting from this book I needed to properly commit. My mantra is now seriously embedded in my daily life, and my new habit is getting there too. So why only 4 stars? My only complaint was there were parts of the 21 day process that completely duplicated the first half of the book. This was necessary and made sense on reflection, embedding the knowledge, but there were days when I felt frustrated to be reading nothing new. That said, if you’re serious about embedding new habits, this is the book for you.

    No regrets. I am attracted to Jen Sincero's voice and will read anything she writes. I did not like this one as much as her first "You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life" -- that one I've read five times at least. While this one moved faster than "You Are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth" -- her making $ book was more valuable.

While this one moved faster than "You Are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth" -- her making $ book was more valuable. Biggest takeaways for me from this was (No spoilers) "Loving your whole self is simply a habit, a habit that's definitely worth having," "It's usually the stuff you want to do the least that changes your life the most," and "Forming good habits isn't about being perfect; it's about being more of who you are." Special nods -- I liked the use of her phrase -- "restore order to your life", "real human connection happens, when we're vulnerable," and "Shift your identity to match the habits you're adopting." No I do not have it memory. I kept a purple journal (complete with purple pen) which I highly recommend. "The first step to making any change (major) in your life is always awareness." - Jen Sincero

    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. I don't have a man-bun, an addiction to avocado toast, a scooter... or a tech startup. Anyhow, that doesn't matter!

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.)

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!

    Some useful tips for starting and keeping new habits you want to establish to help achieve your ultimate goals. Easy and fast read. I liked the success stories from other people she included.

While things like tracking habits, stacking new habits onto existing habits, removing barriers to success, creating incentives, starting small and building up over time, finding an accountability partner etc are all really positive and useful tips I have trouble swallowing the emphasis she puts on the value of mantras and positive thinking/vision boards etc. She really puts a lot of stock in the power of such things (which is not a bad thing) but i don’t know if I fully buy that you can make any goal come true with the power of positive thinking alone. Overall some worthwhile tips to help make the positive changes you want in life. Other useful books I’ve read recently on this topic include: the Lazy genius way, Atomic habits and the 4% fix. Taking that first step toward change is the hardest one!! Its way too easy to read about it or procrastinate (two things I’m a champ at doing!!)

    DNF I really wish I’d liked this book, as I’ve been working on developing some new habits for myself. The first thing that kinda felt off putting for me was the author’s constant mention of weight loss and dieting. I’m all for using habits to live a healthier lifestyle (in fact that’s one of my goals), and sometimes loosing weight is a part of that, but I feel like talking about weight loss every three minutes plays into some issues of fat phobia.

It also could have been so easily changed to just talk about developing healthy habits rather than specifically weight loss. My bigger issue, however, came with her tip of changing your mindset and using the example of being poor because you’re thinking like a poor person and not trying hard enough. As someone who is in the social service field, I can tell you that for most people who are in poverty, it’s not an issue of having the wrong “mindset”. Honestly I could harp on this particular point for a while but I think I’ve made my point here.

    After reading Atomic Habits and the power or habits, this was redundant and didn't add anything fresh for me personally. Things mentioned were things im already doing •track my eating/mindful eating •TRY working out 20 minutes a day in the morning until it becomes a habit •Cue, response, reward Despite some people's comments, I enjoyed the first How to be a Badass.

Things mentioned were things im already doing •track my eating/mindful eating •TRY working out 20 minutes a day in the morning until it becomes a habit •Cue, response, reward Despite some people's comments, I enjoyed the first How to be a Badass. It was actually a introductory book into the self help/care world and it came at a time when I was really down and wanted to be the badass I know I am. And maybe it did work?! Cause even though I'm still a process in the making, I do know I'm a Badass too. Just because I know these things already, doesn't mean its not a good book for people who are just getting into it or don't read much. I'll recommend this to my younger sister and she'll probably benefit from it. I pulled a chapter for my grandma cause I'll think she'll benefit from the information. This will probably be the last book I'll read on habits.. I'd suggest checking out Atomic Habits or Power of the habits

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.

Confront your limiting beliefs, excuses and fears that have made it hard to stick to your habits 5. Be patient and kind with yourself. Be grateful for small growth - with the knowledge that it won’t happen over night. But look back over time occasionally to see big growth. Reward yourself :)

    Well, this book does seem like a casual rephrasing of James Clear's Atomic Habits. While it doesn't feel so much different than the other Badass books, it did have a different structure as the author starts a 21-day journey with the reader/listener in which they choose one habit they want to develop and follow along with the instructions each day. That was nice. On the other hand, the book is packed with no scientific evidence or studies whatsoever but instead with lots and lots and lots of perso Well, this book does seem like a casual rephrasing of James Clear's Atomic Habits.

On the other hand, the book is packed with no scientific evidence or studies whatsoever but instead with lots and lots and lots of personal storytelling that I couldn't help but get lost in it wondering, when I finally realize that I can't follow: What the heck was that section originally about?! Almost nothing is new here and it's not the author's fault anyway. Maybe I should give up reading about habits for it seems like there's nothing more into the topic.
