Bestselling author of girl, wash your face and founder of thechicsite.Com Rachel Hollis urges women to stop apologizing for their desires, hopes and dreams and instead to go after them with passion and confidence. Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women being afraid of their own goals. They’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough. But the biggest fear of all is of being judged for having ambition at all. Having been taught to define themselves in light of other people-whether as wife, mother, daughter, or friend-many women have forgotten who they are and what they were meant to be. In girl, stop apologizing, entrepreneur and online personality Rachel Hollis encourages women to own their hopes and desires and goals and reminds them They don’t need permission to want more. With a call to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviour to adopt and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence and the biggest possible version of their lives.
Rachel’s best-selling book Girl, wash your face was very motivational and inspirational. But ‘Girl, stop apologizing’ has also done good job but not that much.
But, if you are someone who is struggling to make time for your dreams, then this book is for you. The book basically shows how women gave up on their dream for their families, and how they end up apologizing for having such dreams or for just thinking about themselves for once. This book is all about embracing all those dreams and achieving them eventually.
The book is divided into many chapters and the one I enjoyed the most is the first one, which deals with the excuses that people keep feeding themselves with. This part is not just for women, but everyone can relate to it.
Most people make excuses like ‘I don’t have time’ or ‘I am afraid of failure’ or ‘what will people think’, etc. And Rachel says that if we really want to achieve something in life, we have to let go of all the excuses. I know you’re gonna say “well duh, I know all that.” But, when you will read the book you will see that she has some real insights and ideas to let go of those excuses, that you might not have.
I really enjoyed Rachel’s writing style, and her reference back to her own life, her failures, her accomplishments and all the thing she learned over the years.
Not everyone will be able to relate to this book, but I think everyone can find an area of value in here that can easily be applied to their own lives.
I recommend this book to everyone, especially to all the women out there!!
