My Thoughts: You Goal, Girl is a really great motivational and inspirational workbook. Set out as a resource to (potentially) last a year, You Goal, Girl, encourages readers to define goals, set plans, maintain your progress, and re-evaluate. What sets this book aside from others of the self-help market is the engaging and approachable way in which the book is written.
The approachability of the book can be seen through the way in which readers are prompted to think about goals, that is they are encouraged and told that no one is the same and you might not be able to define to the amount or degree specified in the book. Everyone’s journey is different and there may be things in your life that you can’t control.
You Goal, Girl is also very forgiving. All throughout the workbook there are reminders that things can happen, you may lose focus, you may go through a rough patch, and you might struggle to meet your goals. There are two sections that provide a space for readers to take a break, re-evaluate, and think of why they want to continue. These sections are Chapter Four: Gratitude Log and Chapter 6: Midway Check-in.
The Gratitude Log prompts you to list things that make you grateful and is a powerful tool for readers to maintain the energy to accomplish their goals. I loved section of the workbook, the open acknowledgement that ‘hey sometimes things get hard but don’t feel bogged down because look at all these good things to keep you going!’ It’s nice for a self help book to so openly acknowledge that sometimes you need space to keep you going and pages and tools to re-evaluate your goals.
Recommendations: The target demographic of You Goal, Girl isn’t everyone. The books feels like the first book you would get someone when they wanted to start hitting goals or take more control of their life.
You Goal, Girl is well thought out, provides enough room to fill in the prompts, and the explanations and affirmations are great at kick starting ideas. I would really recommended this for anyone looking for a simple, easy, and friendly goal setting workbook! Also the book also looks great, so win-win.
