I love this woman. Huffington’s take on the world. I mean, she started a fearlfss when she was 52, without the aid of trendy black rimmed glasses and an unhealthy preoccupation with pop culture. While I often real from books written exclusively for women, I think it’s important to have female role models – women who are strong, feminine, powerful and not Hillary Clinton.
Women are still struggling to find a voice – if we ignore th I love this woman. Women are still struggling to find a voice – if we ignore that struggle, we come up short.
On Becoming Fearless: In Love, Work, and Life
This book rules for acknowledging the struggle but offering some seriously becming solutions. Jun 10, Jillian rated it liked it Shelves: Huffington has always interested me.
Like her, I’m a former republican who became a progressive populist. This book isn’t ground-breaking, but there are helpful aroanna to be found. I liked Huffington’s child raising ideas. She believes that “it takes a village to raise a child,” and Americans should involve the entire family and neighborhood, in child raising.
On Becoming Fearless by Arianna Huffington
She also advocates volunteerism to move children past their fear of unpopularity, to a desire to become useful in society. Other sections Huffington has always interested me. Other sections I liked were about letting go of people, things, and ideas that we’re not passionate about.
Huffington’s ideas about detoxification, mercury, yoga, hugfington sweat lodges are quirky, but interesting. I found her words about letting go of control to find peace, powerful. Huffington talks a lot about her book Picasso: Creator and Destroyer, and this was intriguing.
‘On Becoming Fearless,’ by Arianna Huffington
I had no idea that Picasso was such a toxic lover. Sep becomingg, Paige rated it did not like it Shelves: Only made it halfway through the audiobook version.
The half I listened to seemed like a collection of thoughts and opinions that were neither original nor thought-provoking.
Many references and anecdotes scattered throughout but the only thing that seemed to loosely glue it all together was the frequent repetition of the becomijg “fearless”. Mar 23, Cathy Allen rated it really liked it Shelves: Having recently waxed enthusiastic about Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In, it seems only right that I should give a bit of a shout out to Arianna Huffington, who struck a very similar cord with this one in While Sandberg’s theme is a bit broader, speaking to a variety of internal and external factors that hold women ariana, On Becoming Fearless focuses on one of the biggest contributors: We women don’t put ourselves forward don’t “lean in” as often as we might because of our fears.
Hu Having recently waxed enthusiastic about Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In, it seems only right that I should give a bit of a shout out to Arianna Huffington, who struck a very similar cord with this one in Huffington, who demonstrates a remarkable degree of courage in her public life, provided us with advice on overcoming fear long before Sandberg put pen to paper.
Er, went to her keyboard. Huffington’s contribution is solid. By sharing personal examples she reminds us that we are all created equal. While some people are more naturally fearless than others, Huffington herself has struggled with this enough to be a credible messenger on the value of putting in the effort arianan overcome.
She breaks down the various ways fear is expressed at work, home, with money, with facing illness, etc.
I especially like it that she paints a picture of what a strong woman can accomplish when she lives fearlessly. Most of us will never find ourselves on the Sunday morning talk shows, but we can certainly increase our personal contribution in the becominh by choosing to move out of our self-imposed comfort zone. So why do these two super-accomplished women care whether arianan of the rest of us lean in to our lives and accept the role of leadership?
Because it is lonely at the top! Huffington is especially keen to see increasing numbers of women becoming outspoken: And, she concludes, “The world needs the leadership of women now more than ever.
We may lose friends in the process, but we can no longer afford to remain silent. Thanks for caring enough to speak up! Apr 13, Challis rated it did not like it Shelves: So far, not too impressed. Seems like a self-justifying excuse to feel good about things you aren’t proud of and maybe shouldn’t be.
I disagree with a lot of her principles and philosophies and so far haven’t learned anything about becoming fearless, but rather why she has justified certain decisions in her life and called them good. Focuses on the obvious, like get enough sleep, exercise,drink water. And also some confusing contradictions the feminists have created for us like be a good person So far, not too impressed. And also some confusing contradictions the feminists have created for us like be a good person although not too nice, because then you’ll be walked on and never be promoted in this man’s world.
She also tries to explain how women’s nature yearns for love and romance, but then tells us we shouldn’t rely on men and probably don’t even need them. God made us differently and if we keep trying to be what we’re nothuffingfon never find true peace and joy in our lives. Jul 26, Renee rated it it was ok Shelves: If I had read this without having previously waded through more than a few self-help books, articles on “living well” in feminist magazines, and a college course in Women’s Studies, I might have a more favorable review.
Well, there is preaching to the choir, and then there is putting the choir to sleep. However, fearlese you the plural Oh Arianna I was simply bored reading about them. On the plus side, the book did teach me the phrase memento morifor which I thank Huffington because with the amount of Ancient History courses I took in college, you would think someone might have mentioned it before.
I had to work to get through this book. What I found was a collection of contradicting thoughts and vignettes from Huffington’s life. She comes across being self-congratulatory and unapologetic for taking strong and afianna stands and seems almost proud of the relationships that she has lost as a result of her strident and public views. Yet, the final chapter, Fearless in Changing the World, has a message of using your inner power to overcome fear to change the world.
It is all about being par I had to work to frarless through this book. It is all about being part of a community and working to include others and helping the disenfranchised. This seems hucfington contradict the first half which seems to teach the lesson of “do what you have to do to be fearless, despite the cost.
Just read the final chapter and call it a success! May 24, Sara rated it liked it Shelves: I listened to this book while commuting. I enjoyed parts of it and thought that she had some good point. However, a lot of it was “fluff” so it wasn’t as instructive as I was hoping. I admire the author and enjoyed her insights. Feb 03, Elizabeth rated it really liked it. A well-principled book about women mastering their oon. Lots of references but the one I liked best was from Louann Brizendine’s The Female brain — in midlife due to changes in hormone levels and brain chemistry, women start to care less about others’ opinions and more about what matters to them.

Also a drop in testosterone contributes to a postmenopausal zest. Oct 22, Amy rated it liked it.
