Live Like You Give A Fuck! International Coach Nicola Findlay Wants You to Step Up, Shake your Ass and Do your ‘Thang’!

I am a huge fan of self-help books. I don’t know why but there is something so comforting and sometimes deeply enlightening in reading these books; Napoleon Hill,  Deepak Chopra, Brendon Burchard, Sarah Knight, Jen Sincero, Mel Robbins sitting neatly on the shelf ready to motivate, inspire and tell you what to do to fix whatever in your life need to be fixed.

But while I am perusing the self-help section at Barnes&Noble (my fav in Union Square, Manhattan) I realize how the practice of “giving advice” seems to have become a popular business… apparently, a quite lucrative one, as I just found out.

At the start of the 21st century, “the self-improvement industry” was said to constitute a “2.48 billion dollars-a-year industry in the United States alone. By 2006, research firm Marketdata estimated the “self-help” market as worth more than $9 billion with a projected growth to over $11 billion by 2008.*

In 2011 Kathryn Schulz -journalist and author, winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing– examined an $11 billion industry in her article for The New York MagazineThe Self in Self-Help: We have no idea what a self is. So how can we fix it?” (New York Magazine, Jan 2013).

Today, you could throw a rock and any street corner and hit someone who’s preaching about claiming your personal power, find your balance, follow your dreams and be the best you. Some are legitimate advice supported by studies and researches, others simply obvious and pointless quotes.

And then there is Nicola Findlay, who has spent the last 10 years approaching self-help a bit differently.. you’ll see why.

Today I am very happy to host the Book Blog Tour for Live Like You Give A F**k! Create the Life You Want NOW…not Later, by Nicola Findlay (Clink Street Publishing).

Honest and genuine. Truly passionate and down to earth, Nicola Findlay is a breath of fresh air in the jungle of all the self-help gurus out there. 

Synopsis:

Boss a bitch? Diet a hot mess? Broke after payday? Ghosted on tinder? If life feels like a constant hangover why not take five f**king minutes for yourself to decide what you really want. Slam on the brakes, kick off your heels and unplug from the social media circus.

Live Like You Give A F**K will show you how to create the future you want, not the one that’s been shoved down your throat. It will shake and wake you from the hypnosis of modern living. The triple shot of empowerment, confidence and motivation will unleash the badass in you.

Nicola Findlay is the straight-talking, bold, coaching diva who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. If you ask her advice about your lame partner she’ll give you a bitch slap, tell you to raise your standards and get rid of that loser.

She’s your best friend, your enemy, your punchbag and your cheerleader. Some people call her a diva, some people call her a badass bitch but whichever you decide you will get results.

WARNING: If you’re afraid of a few swear words on a page put this book down and go cry to your Mama. I’m not here to offend anyone.  I’m here to tell you how to rock your world, and because I’m so passionate about it I’ll be shouting and swearing from the rooftops.


Extract from “Live Like You Give A F**K!”

Through time, study and personal experience I’ve realised that there’s something bigger than us at play. It’s something that I’ve learnt to trust and get fully aligned with. It’s my number one BFF, I call her The Universe.

The Universe at Play

Before you get all weirded out, I haven’t turned into a spiritual hippie, it’s just the basic laws of quantum physics, which are fact. Every single thing on this planet when broken down into its most microscopic form is energy. And energy, like high-school kids, likes hanging around with other energy like itself. So positive waves of energy will flow and attract to other molecules of positive energy. And likewise, yup you guessed it, negative energy will attract to other forms of negative energy, which is commonly referred to as the Law of Attraction. The subject was written about back in the day as early as 1937 by Napoleon Hill in one of my favourite books Think and Grow Rich and more recently by Rhonda Byrne in the hugely successful book The Secret. Some people pooh pooh the idea but I’ve had too many examples of this force doing great things in my life to ignore it.

You might have your own name for this energy and call it God, the spirit, divine wisdom, call it bloody hocus pocus if you want, but please just understand the more you get in alignment with The Universe, and allow it to guide you to the things you want, you will be super surprised that it’s real and it works.

Have you ever had a coincidence? Well girlfriend, there is no such thing. That is The Universe at play right there. Acknowledge it, be thankful for it and wait for more of that good energy to show up. When The Universe is at play and things happen that I can’t explain or believe, I say that it’s The Universe giving me a road-sign and I get super excited. The more you trust and believe in it, the harder it will work with you and the better life will get. The only condition I do believe you’ve got to sign up to is that you’ve got to get your ass into gear with action for the Law of Attraction to be of benefit to you. If you just lay back and wait for the perfect guy, job or home to fall into your lazy lap it won’t happen. You’ve got to put some skin in the game to aid the manifestation process.

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is Physics.” 

Albert Einstein

Steve Jobs once said: “You need to make a dent in the universe, otherwise why else be here?” So right now, for me, this book, my labour of love is me making my dent in The Universe and if this dent motivates, inspires or encourages even just one of you beautiful badass women out there in the world I’ll be happier than a fat kid with cake.

So, What the Heck are You Doing Here?

You didn’t just stumble across this book. The powers at play slapped this book in your face for a good reason. I’m no Einstein but I’m guessing that something is adrift in your life, or you are seeking something which you haven’t yet found, or my favourite, you just want to ramp up the volume and start living life like a ‘playing-full-out-mother-fucker’. Any one of these reasons is brilliant. There is a specific reason why these pages found their way to you. It could be that one line, one idea, one thought or habit you make blows your mind and makes a shift in a huge way for you.

Perhaps your boss is an asshole and makes your working life a living nightmare so you want to find a way to get thehell out of that office and start your own business. Maybe you absolutely love what you do but are dead-beat broke. Or perhaps it could be time to get rid of that bum in your life and find someone who deserves and appreciates you.

Or maybe, just maybe, your situation is not as extreme as that but you are in the worst situation of them all. You are in a perpetual groundhog day. Where everything is just OK, fine, hunky-dory and you’re sat there thinking, is this it? REALLY? This is my life and I’m going to check out without ever really smashing it. So you’re sort of, kind of hoping and praying for a bit of magic in your boring, average, unimaginative, repetitive life. You may have awesomeness sprinkled in with fun nights out here and there, or when you book or go on holiday. But are you truly waking up every single fucking day excited to be alive and kicking on this planet and driving full speed into your dreams? Or is everything just OK? I’m telling you; ‘just OK’ is a scary place to be, because if something is bad, fucked up or wrong, you know it’s bad, fucked up or wrong. When you have enough leverage you will damn well do something about it, and when you do, that is where the magic truly happens. But when everything is OK, there is no reason for you to change anything in your life. You continue to coast along in neutral gear, where you only enjoy your days off, hate your boss, wish your partner would get their act together, where you think the life you want is for someone else. Do you really want to live a life of OK? I’ll answer that for you… Fuck No!!
