Review: The Girl Who Roars by Shirley Wu


Shirley Wu used to be a people-pleasing person who worked hard for the wrong reasons.  She then realized she wanted to be her best self, investing in her dreams and maximizing her gifts.  Shirley shares her 3-step process:

  1. Intention
  2. Initiating
  3. Immersion.
Instead of seeking approval from others, seek purposeful experience.  My favorite quote from the book is "Do things that you don't tell anyone about. Don't put it on Facebook."  In other words, live your own best life.  Try things and fail. Learn from the experience.  Don't live in a box.

This is a concise book with a defined action plan.  If you are a wallflower, doormat, or just want to get out of a rut, let Shirley inspire you.  You can get The Girl Who Roars for Amazon Kindle.
