Ready to live your dream life? You know that sneaky voice inside your head telling you that you're not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, whatever enough? That's your Mean Girl. And she's doing her best to keep you stuck in Fear Town, too scared to go after the life you always imagined. But enough's enough! Melissa Ambrosini has made a life beyond her wildest dreams, all by mastering her Mean Girl, busting through limiting beliefs and karate-chopping through the fears that held her hostage for years.

My outer mean girl couldn't handle it

I really tried to make it more than a couple of hours in but I just couldn't. My outer mean girl couldn't handle the sob story about the pretty professional dancer in europe who broke up with her boyfriend and had a cry about it, and I wasn't motivated by being called "darling" or "beautiful" or by talking about "my body as a temple"; I couldn't relate to her talk of "acting out of fear vs love" and I drew the line at the quiz in which I didn't meet any of the examples and it didn't even make sense (answer yes or no, but ask two part questions???). I hope this book will connect with other readers and lift women higher but it's just not for me.

  • The Power of Vulnerability

  • Teachings of Authenticity, Connection, and Courage

On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

Brené Brown is a gift to human kind. This book (seminar) was soooo fantastic to listen to. I found myself laughing out loud, nodding my head with agreement and awe and generally having such a wow moment. Gave it two listens back to back and will be revisiting again for sure. Really fantastic work which invites you to look inwards and tackle your 'shame gremlins' to see more love and wholeheartedness in your life. Anything Brené narrates is an automatic SOLD for me - I just LOVE her!

What does it take to be secure in our sense of belonging and self-worth? We may hustle to attain this security through achievements, meeting expectations, or repeating affirmations to ourselves - but Dr. Brené Brown's research has shown there is ultimately one obstacle to our sense of worthiness. “Shame is the barrier,” she teaches, “and building shame resilience is how we overcome it.”

Brené is an absolute joy to listen to. She is so wise, so engaging and it feels like she really is a friend. This title features some great advice and awesome content, however I listened to it after listening to The Power of Vulnerability which is more recent than this, therefore many stories and examples are repeated. I thought it was a bit short in comparison to The Power of Vulnerability and I Thought it was Just Me, so while I listened all the way through, didn't take much out of it after already completing those two.

Perhaps this title would be most valuable to men specifically, however I think skip this and listen to The Power of Vulnerability instead cus you'll take the same away from it and probably enjoy it more.

This well written, funny and relatable book is really motivating and inspiring. While I don't think I'll follow all teachers to the letter, it's so phenomenal that Sarah gets her readers really thinking about all the time they're wasting, with people they don't like, doing things they don't want to do. I contribute this book in part to getting me out of a really long and awful rut, and can't wait to read her other works!
