Girl, Stop Apologizing
Girl, Stop Apologizing: A Shame-Free Plan for Embracing and Achieving Your Goals | Rachel Hollis
Rachel Hollis, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Girl, Wash Your Face and host of the top-rated Rise podcast, 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. Theyre 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 peoplewhether as wife, mother, daughter, friend, or team membermany women have forgotten who they are and what they were meant to be. In Girl, Stop Apologizing, entrepreneur and online personality (TheChicSite.com) Rachel Hollis encourages women to own their hopes, desires, and goals and reminds them they dont 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 behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and the biggest possible version of their lives.

“If it's not a hell yes, it's a no“

She gives lots of advice, useful tips and how to utilize them in a no nonsense way. This book is broken down in three sections Excuses To Let Go Of, Behaviors To Adapt, and Skills To Acquire. I enjoyed the personal experiences she shared. Her writing style and voice was fun and upbeat.

“The problem is that you're letting a short-term choice become your long-term decision“

While this book is better than the last one “Wash Your Face” because it has more action plans laid out behind the concepts she went over, it is still a meh for me. It‘s a book with all the ideas and implementation plans largely borrowed from other good books and then mixed and mashed into this one. The Excuses part is authentically from the author. But I‘ve already heard enough of them from her last book. Let‘s have something NEW.

I guess I don‘t apologize enough so I‘ll start here ... confession .... I‘m creating a Goodreads shelf called ... DNF ... and this is my first book. So it‘s 7.5 audiobook hours. Just over 1 hour into it last night I fell asleep. So today I restarted the book. At 2 hours 12 minutes I returned it. I‘m sorry, didn‘t like it at all. I wanted to! I liked her book about washing your face enough to want to borrow this one but nope. Sorry Hoopla -⭐️1/2

I listened to the audio book. The bonus was it is author narrated. She has amazing passion for her platform/mission and I very much enjoyed listening to her on my way to work each morning. It was like having my very own motivational coach! I will miss the encouraging words coming through my speakers every morning. With that said, she has so much helpful information that I now intend to buy the book. It‘s one of those you want as a reference book.

marleed I listen to so many great books that I find purchasing my 5 stars the right thing to do! 5mo

June 12, 2019 Hello! Checking in for a brief moment because I am on p167 out of 206 (not counting the Bonus Chapter). In all, the book has 224 pages. NOT BAD. As one can see when they pick up this book, it is hard cover but the content is extremely understandable and concise. It feels like the author is talking to you in-person! SO GOOD ugh

I got this one from a Goodreads giveaway. I enjoyed it. I really Ike‘s her first book and I like the way she says things and what she has to say in general. I love her attitude and experiences , but not sure if we needed a full second book by her with such similar subject matter.

June 7, 2019 I have already started to dive into the books I bought yesterday!!! This is either the second book by Rachel Hollis or first book?! Idk tbh haha I am just loving her books because I enjoy self help books and advice books ( in addition to Young Adult books )

#CurrentlyReading this book I picked up with a coupon... I don't know anything about Rachel Hollis other than her other book got lots of mixed reviews. My curiousity was piqued but I didnt feel like reading her sex life... Sooooo I got this one instead. Started it yesterday while LO napped and I'm already 1/3 of the way done. I have a memo saved in my phone with lots of quotes already... May be time to check out her IG. What are y'all reading?

Avanders It‘s always so nice to find a book like that that speaks to you! I‘m hopefully finishing this: 6mo
vkois88 @Avanders oh, that sounds like an interesting read!! I'm honestly relieved I like this one as much as I do so far... I'm not typically big into NF anyway, and it was a total leap of faith purchase. 6mo
Q84 Sounds interesting! I'm currently trying to finish tagged book which has been taking me forever to get through due to busy schedule. Also, an audio I've been listening to in the car to work. I think it's the White Princess. Trying to finish both this month. 6mo
vkois88 @Q84 I have The Immortalists on my shelf, just waiting to be read! Are you enjoying it? 6mo

Sorry for the poor picture, but I guess that‘s what happens when you finish listening to an audiobook on your work computer 😂

I enjoyed this one. Just like Girl, Wash Your Face I do think there are some great ideas/reminders and listening to Rachel Hollis read it makes her words/advice that much more energetic.

This was a good listen! Parts of it felt like she was patting herself on the back, a lot which was a bit much but once she got pay that her advice was good

Self help books are not my jam mainly because they are just common sense, which I like to think I already possess. That being said, I found this book entertaining and containing some nuggets of truth that hit home for me.

The photo is not mine, but I wear glasses and drink coffee so...

"I know this seems almost blasphemous to some people, but you really, truly don't have to hang out with people who are negative or mean or make you anxious or bring out the worst in you. Even family."

I am not one for self-help books, but there are nuggets in this book that I really need right now. I even broke one of my own rules and dog eared this page!

Chock full of practical tips and advice like her first book. I pulled alot of quotes from this one too. This one didnt strike me as good as her first but was equally funny and of course she shared all her experiences. I love how she sectioned her book into excuses, behaviors and skills. Def. recommend.
