GOLD. FIRE. FIERCE. EYE-OPENING.
Rachel Hollis completely changed my perspective on life with her book Girl, Wash Your Face. Her words resonated with me and the encouragement she brought into my life continues to help me not forget that my dreams matter and that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. Becoming a part of Rachel’s launch team was something that I could never dream of happening, but it did happen!
“Embracing the idea that you can want things for yourself even if nobody else understands the why’s behind them is the most freeing and powerful feeling in the world.”
Split into three parts — Excuses to Let Go of, Behaviors to Adopt, and Skills to Acquire — this book takes you on a journey of profound self-discovery where you’ll question all the excuses you’ve ever made. It will encourage you to look for change, and help you strive to live your life to the fullest. As I read and listened to this book, I was inspired to jump at the opportunities that came my way and break my normal status quo. I don’t want to be the girl who allows my excuses to stop me from pursuing the things I want to do. It’s time to take control and stop apologizing when I feel the need to put myself first!
“You were made to have the dreams you’re afraid of having. You were made to do the things that you don’t think you’re qualified for. You were made to make changes for good, both in your local community and the world at large. You are made to be more than you are today and — this is the important part — your version of more might not look like my more, or hers.”
Rachel has taken the Self-Help genre to a whole new level. This book was motivational, gear-shifting, and awe-inspired. If you aren’t feeling fulfilled in your life or you wish for another future, don’t wait for tomorrow to come, start making a change now!
“So stop waiting for someday; someday is a myth. don’t wait to have the time; start planning to make the time!”
