Self-Help is a genre that continues to interest me. Swagger is focused on helping you to become your true, authentic self. As you go through the book, there are activities and ways to help you create goals.
I thought this was a really great book to help you become who YOU truly are. This is not about faking or pretending until you become what you think you are, it is about bringing out what is already inside you. The stories that are shared within this book are truly inspirational, and I found myself nodding over and over as I read them.
I really enjoyed how Ehm talks about being your true, authentic self in all situations means that you don’t feel the need to adjust yourself based on your surroundings. I think this is something that is so true. As we go to work, do we feel we need to change who we are in some ways? When we go to our friend’s homes or family, etc. I really connected with the idea of being consistent and wholly me.
Overall, I thought this was a really great and inspirational book that many people will benefit from! Leslie Ehm has created an interactive book that gives people exactly what they need to find their true self!
Where to Find This Book:
Ever wonder why some people are magnetic, confident in their abilities, in charge of their own destinies, and utterly at ease in their own skin? What’s their secret? In a word: Swagger.
And no, this is not the old swagger―that show-off, in-your-face, arrogant kind. This brand-new swagger is unshakable, undeniable and utterly unstoppable. And you can have it too.
Award-winning training guru and coach Leslie Ehm shows that true swagger results from your ability to manifest who you really are and hold on to it in the face of all the psychological crap that will come for it every day. Part guidebook, part manifesto, a little sweary and completely inspiring, Swagger gives you the steps to unlock and unleash your personal brand of swagger―one that can never be duplicated or diminished. And you’ll read stories of the countless people Leslie’s worked with who’ve discovered their own swagger and changed their lives for the better.
Forget everything you think you know about confidence-building. Swagger shatters the myths around “fake it ’til you make it,” and shows you how to record over all the negative self-limiting tapes and stop giving away your personal power. You’ll learn how to challenge the preconceptions of what you “should” and “shouldn’t” do, and navigate the professional world with authenticity and badassery.
Discover what swagger blockers are holding you back and what drivers will bring your unique and powerful personality to the forefront for all to revel at and see why Swagger is the new mindset that will bring you all of the success you’ve ever dreamed of without ever having to compromise or sacrifice who you really are.
For anyone who’s ever felt that they weren’t good enough or believed that revealing their messy, vulnerable, authentic human selves could never result in greater success, Swagger will give you a doorway into the kind of self-belief that creates unimaginable confidence and will change the way you live, work and feel.
Your swagger is waiting for you. What are you waiting for?
