#MMBBR #Review #YoureNotThatGreat by Elan Gale @theyearofelan ‏@AmazonPub #GrandCentralPublishing

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is fantastic. I laughed and loved the raw truth in this book. I was left feeling like I needed to look within myself and really see how I can make some changes. Life is going to happen, you control how you react to it. I just adored this approach to looking at life and this is a book that would make a great gift. I loved that is wasn't a typical self help book, it was way better than that! A must read for all (as long as you have a good sense of humor).


I am addicted to positivity. I am addicted to positivity. I am addicted to positivity.

I care more about feeling great than being great.


The self-help industry tells you that if you're positive, if you put your best foot forward and if you just believe in yourself that you will find happiness. Let's be real, you can read all the inspirational quotes you want. You can spend your days giving yourself affirmations in your heart-shaped mirror and trying to learn to love yourself. You can say your mantra over and over again while sitting cross-legged on a yoga mat in a Whole Foods parking lot. But the truth is, you're not a badass and you still don't have the life you want. That's where You're Not That Great (but neither is anyone else) comes in. This book teaches you how to harness all the negativity in the world and use it to improve your life, taking everyday feelings like self-loathing, regret and shame and making them work for you. Positive thinking is for assholes. Negative thinking is for winners.
