How To Be A Bawse by Lilly Singh – Book Review

Hello Booklovers!!!

Today is all about being a bawse 🙂 🙂 🙂

Book Description

From actress, comedian, and YouTube sensation Lilly Singh (aka ||Superwoman||) comes the definitive guide to being a bawse—a person who exudes confidence, reaches goals, gets hurt efficiently, and smiles genuinely because they’ve fought through it all and made it out the other side.

Told in her hilarious, bold voice that’s inspired over nine million fans, and using stories from her own life to illustrate her message, Lilly proves that there are no shortcuts to success.

WARNING: This book does not include hopeful thoughts, lucky charms, and cute quotes. That’s because success, happiness, and everything else you want in life needs to be fought for—not wished for. In Lilly’s world, there are no escalators, only stairs. Get ready to climb.

My Review

Who is a bawse?

A person who exudes confidence, hustles relentlessly, reaches for goals and smiles genuinely because he or she has fought through it all and made it out the other side.

Last year I discovered the YouTube channel of Lilly Singh, which completely inspired me. That was the fact, which was behind, me buying her book – How to be a Bawse

I still can remember the day I received the book via mail, I was too excited to do anything else or even worst, I could not concentrate on my work.

I have taken double the time to complete this book, (which is longer time than any other book) due to the following reasons,

  1. I really wanted to grasp the idea of every single word written in the book.
  2. I was focusing more on the idea that Lilly was trying to give to the reader, so I re-read some chapters, just to make sure that I was well aware of the idea.

The book includes 4 parts,

  • Part 1 – Master your mind
  • Part 2 – Hustle Harder
  • Part 3 – Make heads turn
  • Part 4 – Be a Unicorn

Each section has its own unique set of subtopics, which will help you to reach the ultimate goal of becoming a #bawse

The book gives great motivation and inspiration to the reader. I am not a fan of motivational and self-help books, but this was totally out of that situation. I enjoyed her free way if thinking and writing style.

A few inspiring and motivating things that I discovered from the book;

  1. Controlling and maintaining your emotions.
  2. Exercising self-control.
  3. Be nice to people.
  4. Be grateful to all what you have.
  5. Promote what you love.

This book has indeed helped me to stay motivated and be focused on reaching my goals.

My Rating

(5/5)  Tremendous, I like it very much

I would highly recommend this book to anyone as a wonderful motivational and self-help book. It is amazing and I definitely a;m going to re-read it again and again until the day that I reach my goals in life. This will be my mantra and guidance.

That is all for today folks, and do not forget to leave your comments below about this post.

Until next post,
