I am honoured to be part of the WOW! Women of Writing Blog Tour for Marla J. Albertie’s book The Ultimate Brag Book About Yourself,, which I read and am now reviewing.
(Please note: I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.)
I have always enjoyed making lists and journaling. Marla J. Albertie’s book is chockful of wonderful suggestions (100!) to create lists about yourself. Lists that prove just how wonderful you are.
If you have never tried to journal, this is a fun and easy way to start.
This is not a book you complete in one setting. Rather, it is one to spend time with it over days, even weeks, as you explore all the questions/suggestions. Keep it handy and dip into it when you have time to ponder the questions. Some are easy – favourite holidays, singers, restaurants for example.
But, some are challenging. Two of the hardest for me were:
10 Things I Love About Myself
25 Values I Live By.
It was not so much the question – it was the number. 10? 25 I could manage 5 fairly easily. But Marla had stated that she wanted us to “stretch our thinking”, to really look deeply into ourselves.
I look forward to continuing to push myself to list my good qualities and my likes. This book is a valuable tool to understand and truly appreciate yourself.
I highly recommend this book.
Can you imagine all the things you like, love, and adore in one book?
Let’s be honest. We tend to forget how amazing we really are. It is easy to see it in others, but when it comes to seeing ourselves, we tend to have bad vision.
This is why I wrote this book! All your favorites are captured at one time with space to write more. How often do we brag about ourselves, take time to think about what makes us happy, or do the things we like? If I had to guess, not as often as you would like. You deserve to brag about yourself, so why not? Not only is this a bragging book, but it is a book of ideas you can use to start your next project, business, career move, or anything your heart desires.
In this book, you will learn:
- How to vision board your next big career move
- How to inspire yourself by seeing you
- That you are worthy
This book is for everyone who wants to see themselves as the person they are. You deserve to be your own cheerleader. Grab this book today and start bragging on yourself!
