Packed with sage advice, life-changing insights and affirmations to help you soar, ITGIRL4LIFE offers ideas, tools and principles that you can reference and build upon, supporting you in becoming your best. Get ready to fall in love with your own wisdom, beauty and strength.
In the uplifting and invigorating words of author and motivational speaker Tamara Branch, what you believe about yourself affects what you choose, and what you become. In order to be able to take charge of your own life and make a difference, you need to stop depending on the judgement and approval of others and start loving yourself, explore your potential, and value your uniqueness. You will then be able to see your greatness, understand the purpose of your presence on this Earth , and build a life that is authentic, fulfilling, and productive. “Trust yourself. Your values and instincts will guide you to what feels right for you.”
ItGirl4Life is an inspirational handbook for “every girl who ever had a doubt” about their sense of self and worth. Although not fashioned as a traditional self-help guide (bite sized chapters and lack of a fully developed section of exercises and practical advices may suit readers who don’t have the opportunity to sit down for long reading sessions, but may not prove satisfying for readers who look for a more comprehensive and detailed roadmap to solidify their goals), Branch’s handbook remains a motivational tool of remarkable power. Its upbeat and fresh format will greatly appeal to readers in their teens, but I would recommend it to a young female audience as well as women of all ages who would like to provide their loved ones with an accessible mantra and self-confidence boost. 4 stars out of 5
