How To Be A Bawse by Lilly Singh || This book has literally changed my life


I don't normally read self-help books, but since I adore Lilly, I decided to read it. This isn't just another YouTuber book, oh no. It's a guide to conquering life, so if you were going to pass by this book because of the whole 'Every YouTuber is coming out with a book!!' thing, think again. This book will literally change you. I was not prepared for how it changed me. Sounds cheesy, right? But it's true. Some words I would use to describe this book are: motivating, inspiring, fun, helpful. Besides that, Lilly is also one of the most relatable people on the internet. I mean, just look at these gifs and tell me that they are relatable AF:










- I think what I loved most about this book was just how positive and energetic it was. I came away from each segment feeling so motivated and positive about myself.


- This book isn't just good advice and motivation, it also (obviously) includes plenty of humor, which made very fun.

- The book is very colourful, with lots of pictures and fun, bright, happy colours. I always like it when a book is aesthetically pleasing.
- At the end of some segments, she put interactive exercises for you to do, and they were so great! Here's my favourite:

- At the end of each section she put a short part called 'Out of the Blue' and basically they showed her life before and after, and how much happier she's become and how everything changed. I may or may not have cried.
- My favourite chapters are: Get Uncomfortable, Schedule Inspiration, Don't Survive, You're An Investment, and Promote What You Love. My favourite Part of the book was Part 2: Hustle Harder.

-Some quotes that I loved and will definitely be putting on my wall:

"Lack of motivation isn't permanent or a sign of weakness. Expect it and proactively schedule time to be creative."

"Be The Dumbest: Challenge yourself by surrounding yourself with people who know more than you do. It's a vital way to learn and improve."



"Think of discomfort as currency-- it's the price you pay to learn some pretty crucial things."

"Mistakes don't exist just to make us feel bad about ourselves; they are opportunities that we should not ignore or shy away from."

"Don't just try to pass your classes; try to ace them. Don't just aim to pay your bills; save enough to travel. I don't want you to write a script just to see a movie get made; I want you to win an Oscar. That's the difference between settling like a survivor and conquering like a Bawse."



- IT WAS TOO SHORT I WANTED MORE! I WANTED IT TO NEVER END. I WAS SO SAD WHEN I FINISHED IT.



In conclusion, this was a truly amazing book, one that I will be buying, re-reading over and over again, and treasuring forever. I highly suggest that you all go out and get yourself a copy!

    1. Yeah I'm the same. I find most self help books pretentious and they always have unattainable standards, but this one was different. It was way more relatable, it was fun, colourful, and just really motivating. Bonus points because it didn't make me feel like I'm the laziest person on the planet who could never live up to the author's standards! You should read it! I think you'd like it.
