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. And now she wants to help you remember not only what you are capable of, but how amazing you truly are!
In this inspiring, upbeat guide, Melissa provides a practical plan for creating your own version of a kick-ass life — one that’s wildly wealthy, fabulously healthy and bursting with love. Designed to propel you out of stuck-ness and into action, this is a must read if you’re ready to let go of your Mean Girl and start living the life of your dreams.
Health and life coach Ambrosini will charm some readers and push others away with this guide to silencing one's inner critic, the titular "Mean Girl," and making life choices out of love instead of fear. Tactics to "flex your self-love muscle" include scheduling relaxation time, meditating, and using self-affirmations. Ambrosini encourages developing a healthy relationship with food, independent of the Mean Girl's (and society's) judgments, an admirable pursuit even if the food philosophy she outlines is a bit severe. Career advice focuses on finding and articulating a passion and rethinking limiting beliefs about money. Her thoughts on interpersonal relationships include avoiding the "expectation hangover" and "comparisonitis" in favor of genuine friendships with appropriate boundaries. Perhaps Ambrosini's wisest words concern getting over past wrongs, especially self-perpetuated ones. Throughout the book, exercises called "Inspo-actions" provide space for readers to reflect on managing expectations for themselves and others, expressing gratitude, and recognizing self-sabotage. For readers who would like to leave your "penthouse in Fear Town" for a "mansion in Love City," Ambrosini is here to help. Those who cringe at phrases like those (not to mention "be your own bestie," "soul sisters," and "goddess night") should seek help elsewhere.
