A bold guide to finding your unique purpose and uncensored self, Find Your F*ckyeah disrupts today's warm, fuzzy brand of #selfcare and “Just be you!” personal growth trends, translating the hard science of happiness for a generation that speaks emoji. Despite everything society says, you are not a living brand, you do not have to have one passion/purpose/calling, and no am A bold guide to finding your unique purpose and uncensored self, Find Your F*ckyeah disrupts today's warm, fuzzy brand of #selfcare and “Just be you!” personal growth trends, translating the hard science of happiness for a generation that speaks emoji. Despite everything society says, you are not a living brand, you do not have to have one passion/purpose/calling, and no amount of #selfcare is going to change your life. In Find Your F*ckyeah, Alexis Rockley uses guided scientific experiments and refreshing wit to prove why one-size-fits-all success formulas and trendy morning routines won’t keep us happy—and shows us how to find what will. Rockley tackles the social programming and biological defaults that fuel our limiting beliefs head on, showing how they keep us trapped in a cycle of boredom, stress, and burnout. In our attempt to present a hireable, friendable, dateable, and acceptable version of ourselves to the world, we spend much of our lives unintentionally censoring who we really are—and in the process, shoving what we truly want deep into our subconscious. For anyone tired of feeling the pressure to be better, do more, and work faster to find happiness—to self-optimize, shut up, and fit in—Find Your F*ckyeah offers the tools to finally take our lives off autopilot and find joy where we’re at, right now. A must-read if any of this sounds like you: • You regularly bounce back and forth between boredom and stress, only to level out at a vegetative, exhausted state. • You find yourself annoyed that your time isn’t your own because you’re busy making a living. • You like having time to yourself, but hate being alone without an Internet connection. • You sometimes feel confident in the life choices you’ve made (i.e., education, career, relationships), but you can’t help feeling like where you’re “at” in life is somehow… not enough. • You want practical advice on how to be happier, but you’re annoyed by the vague, generic advice of traditional self-help books.

    This book was an impulse buy while walking the isles of my local bookstore, killing time while I was waiting for something or another. I had no desire to read a “self-help” book or anything of the like, but the cover grabbed my attention and I just had to give it a shot. It was nothing like what I expected a self-help or self-care book to be like. I am a resiliency trainer in the military, and this book pulls from some of the same research conducted at the University of Pennsylvania that we use, This book was an impulse buy while walking the isles of my local bookstore, killing time while I was waiting for something or another. I had no desire to read a “self-help” book or anything of the like, but the cover grabbed my attention and I just had to give it a shot. It was nothing like what I expected a self-help or self-care book to be like. I am a resiliency trainer in the military, and this book pulls from some of the same research conducted at the University of Pennsylvania that we use, but it does it in a less clinical, sterilized way. Alexis Rockley writes her book in a spoken narrative format that is easy to digest and relatable. She’s down to earth about her own struggles and how her journey shaped her message. She even acknowledges when her methods reach groan-worthy territory, so her book never falls into that “takes itself too seriously” category even when the information is important. The most important part in my opinion is she actually directly referenced and correctly cited the studies she talks about, so you can do more personal research into the clinical side if you want. Overall, it was well written for those who don’t mind some swearing (obviously from the title), but who want a little more information into why they’re so “bleh” all the time. I have more interests than I know what to do with, and enough purpose and plans to enjoy my life and time without this book, but plan on adding it to my annual reading list for a little clarification and motivation in the future. Definitely give this one a shot.

    Good, solid info...a little skewed toward a young audience, but definitely some gems to take away!

    The book kinda pissed me off. It was hard to get through because the title is misleading. I was looking for a 'how-to' on finding my f*ck yeah and that didn't happen until more than half way through the book. I'm not sure I even got a straight-up answer tbh. The book reminded me of a less fun version of "You Are a Badass" by Jen Sincero. I felt like Alexis Rockley was trying hard to write like Sincero but failed miserably. Don't get me wrong, this book has a lot of great advise and helpful tidbi The book kinda pissed me off. It was hard to get through because the title is misleading.

I honestly don't think I found the solution to finding my f*ck yeah with this one.

    I gave up self-help books about a year ago because I was finding they all felt similar. Lots of words and advice, but leaving me at the end feeling like "now what?". Until this god send of a book came along! As a skeptic myself and someone that actually does roll my eyes at the majority of self-help advice out there, I found this book to be refreshingly different. Alexis takes a science based approach to self improvement and helps to apply it to areas in your life that you are looking to gain cla I gave up self-help books about a year ago because I was finding they all felt similar.

Alexis takes a science based approach to self improvement and helps to apply it to areas in your life that you are looking to gain clarity on. I had so many ah-ha! moments in the book-it was like things were finally clicking for me! I was realizing the reasons why I was stuck in repetitive negative thought patterns and not able to accomplish what I wanted. The best part is she breaks down all of the science into bite sized actionable steps you can begin implementing ASAP to quite literally- get out of your own way. Seriously, this girl rocks. Do yourself a favor and read this book. Especially if you're a skeptic and tired out on self-help like me!

    I was really hoping for more info on how to FIND my thing and less about the emotional baggage that blocks you from PURSUING your thing. That being said, I did find a few things to highlight. Suggested title change: How To DO Your Fuckyeah. Also, if you’re wondering what the FIND part was about, it was the classic, “If you had all the money in the world, how would you spend your day?” question that anyone that has EVER tried to find anything out their thing has come across.

I hate this question so much because it never conjures up long-term thoughts. It’s all short-term because that’s all you can imagine is finally having a day off from all responsibilities. Pretty sure my fuckyeah is not “staying in my pajamas and watching Netflix, reading, and cross stitching all day.” Was the book helpful? It had some good ideas on dealing with baggage. Did I find my fuckyeah? Fuck no.

    If self-help books normally make you eye roll so hard and you’d rather have advice informed by neuroscience, this is your book. If you want to learn about happiness research (that’s current) from an empathetic and strong female peer who learned from leading researchers in the field (at the University of Pennsylvania), this is your book. If you are feeling in a rut and need a cheerleader to help push you forward, this is your book.

    Surprisingly good read. Lots of humor combined with good advice, peps talks, and why-nots! I was actually inspired!

    Saw this at the library and decided to pick it up. Skimmed much of it, so not providing a rating. This “new” self-help type of books are interesting.

    Playful yet self helpful A composition of many books about improving oneself with fun dialogue and easily a fast read. Did not review footnotes, although there are many references for the curious reader.
