Brave, Not Perfect



Brave, Not Perfect In a book inspired by her popular TED talk, New York Times bestselling author Reshma Saujani empowers women and girls to embrace imperfection and bravery.Imagine if you lived without the fear of not being good enough If you didn t care how your life looked on Instagram, or worry about what total strangers thought of you Imagine if you could let go of the guilt, and stop beating yourself up for tiny mistakes What if, in every decision you faced, you took the bolder path Too many of us feel crushed under the weight of our own expectations We run ourselves ragged trying to please everyone, all the time We lose sleep ruminating about whether we may have offended someone, pass up opportunities that take us out of our comfort zones, and avoid rejection at all costs.There s a reason we act this way, Reshma says As girls, we were taught to play it safe Well meaning parents and teachers praised us for being quiet and polite, urged us to be careful so we didn t get hurt, and steered us to activities at which we could shine.The problem is that perfect girls grow up to be women who are afraid to fail It s time to stop letting our fears drown out our dreams and narrow our world, along with our chance at happiness.By choosing bravery over perfection, we can find the power to claim our voice, to leave behind what makes us unhappy, and go for the things we genuinely, passionately want Perfection may set us on a path that feels safe, but bravery leads us to the one we re authentically meant to follow.In Brave, Not Perfect, Reshma shares powerful insights and practices to help us override our perfect girl training and make bravery a lifelong habit By being brave, not perfect, we can all become the authors of our biggest, boldest, and most joyful life.
