Summary

Tired of Bullshit Holding You Back from the Greatness You Deserve?

Whether it's bullshit excuses, limiting belief systems, or the hidden blind spots created by a biased brain keeping you stuck in mediocrity, the barrier of BS is the reason the current reality of your life pales in comparison to the potential possibility of the greatness you were made for.

Part poetry, part smart-ass humor, and a heavy dose of practical empowerment, Break Through Your BS is the sobering slap across the face and the compassionate kick in the ass you've been needing to finally wake up and stop letting your BS hold you back.

Are You Willing to Play?

This book is a game. A journey. An experience where you'll discover....

  • How going after what you want is the very thing that keeps you from getting it.
  • The most common mental traps smart people fall for - and why your intelligence can be your greatest enemy.
  • A simple mental switch you can flip that turns fear into your friend, allowing fear to propel you toward your goals rather than push you away from them.
  • The myth of independence and how your desire for self-sufficiency is keeping you from true empowerment.
  • One mental distinction unlike anything you've ever heard that automatically moves you into a growth and progress mind-set from a perfectionist, fixed mind-set.
  • Why you will never get rid of your BS and why you should rejoice in that fact.
  • And more...

So Now You Have a Choice....

Would you rather be bound by your BS or use this book as but one tool to help you discover how to unleash your greatness?

The choice is yours....

Nothing new

Derek is a smart guy and I share most of his view points but I didn't finish this book feeling as though I'd learnt anything new (I feel that I'm more enlightened than most, so maybe this would be more helpful to someone who hasn't properly reflected on these topics). Still, always good to be reminded of the things he mentions here in his book. Thank you Derek! Good listen!

You'll need a shovel....

The author has a brilliant approach to exposing your BS. In fact, you're left with no choice except to acknowledge its existence and then what you do from there is up to you. You aren't left hanging, quite the opposite, you'll know the next steps to take.
The information is awesome, but the brilliance is really in the delivery. The passion of the author comes through and tagged with the occasional joke here and there, it keeps the energy and flow going in such a way that it's as entertaining as it is educational.
You'll be shoveling through your BS and living a more enlightened existence in no time.

Very Revealing

Loved it! It was almost as if he were a better version of me who could decipher and expound upon ancient wisdom passed down from all different resources! He elaborated and related ideas on a more practical level than most other authors of self-help books I've read!

Best book I've read -- maybe in my life!

Derek captures the essence of what each of us secretly wants to know about eliminating our BS stories and becoming real in a very clear, concise, take-no-prisoners kind of way. This book is about learning to become an adult human being who can BE, at all times, his/her greatest self. I will listen to this book over and over again, and I will recommend it to anyone who sincerely wants to create a great life!

What I needed to hear

Absolutely loved this book. The hilarious moments were a great plus for me. It's unique and exactly the kind of book I needed at the right time. I will definitely be re-listening throughout time or when/if I get stuck in my mind with my own bullshit. Thank you Derek for writing and sharing this book!

Man this is crap

Where do I start. First, I took a chance on this book after some positive reviews. I really think those reviews were either paid for or friends of the author. This author really doesn't bring anything new to the table. I have listened to half of this, and can honestly say, if you purchased this book, you will be disappointed. The author is nothing more than a 15 or 16 year old with all of his "hashtags". No one can be taken seriously that consistently has hashtag in their writing. Maybe one or two, but this is overkill. The author has to use cursing to make his point (not a prude) but really! He also probably should not have read his own book, but maybe he offered it to someone else, and they declined because of content. There is so much wrong with this book that it would take a full page. If you buy this book, don't say you weren't warned.

Definitely a favorite!

I have listened to this Audiobook a few times 2


I have listened to this book a few times now and always get so much out of it!
Listening to it to it the first time, I definitely understand it is a mind-bender in a good way and very challenging.]
I spent several years right out of college being a Zen Buddhist, even living in the desert by myself, seeking the truth of the purpose of my life.
I am now learning to be a follower of Jesus, the greatest lover I have ever met!
This book puts it all together beautifully!!

curious how we can can't and do see

This book truly left me with more questions than answers. I was led to trust and distrust my own thoughts, while being led towards a new understanding of love. Great book!
