Is working like crazy driving you crazy? Do you feel daily pressure to keep pushing yourself even when you're stressed and exhausted?
It's time to stop putting yourself at the bottom of every to-do list and start taking care of yourself first. It's time to leave Superwoman in the movies, where she belongs, and say hello to being a super woman--the best, most productive version of the hero you already are.
For years--maybe your entire life--you've been told that success means having it all and doing it all. But the pressure to work more and harder at "it all" is holding you back, not moving you forward. In Becoming Super Woman, New York Times bestselling author Nicole Lapin redefines what it means to be a woman who "has it all"--and shows you how to find lasting success by your own definition, on your own terms.
Nicole candidly shares her own story of career burnout and the diagnosis that prompted her to take her mental health seriously, for the first time ever. Along the way, she discovered that not only was this priority shift not a defeat, it was the key to unlock even greater accomplishments.
In her third book, Nicole lays out an actionable, 12-step plan to guide you in taking control and becoming the she-ro of your own story, with the skills it takes to be a real super woman--skills we should (but often don't) learn growing up, from emotional regulation and boundary setting to interpersonal effectiveness and self-care. Reading this book is like getting a pep talk from your whip-smart, no-nonsense best friend (who also happens to be a megasuccessful businesswoman).
Entertaining, honest, and truly life-changing, Becoming Super Woman shows you that it's not success that brings you happiness, but the other way around.
