內容簡介

《紐約時報》暢銷書作者兼非營利組織”寫程式的女孩”創辦人Reshma Saujani激勵人心的新書,鼓勵女孩不要怕犯錯,接受不完美,勇於面對失敗,才會有更光明的未來。

要求做到完美無瑕是否讓你筋疲力竭?不斷回想犯下的小錯或者擔心自已的言行冒犯他人而使你輾轉反側?覺得做不好、覺得蠢所以不願嘗試,因而錯失一段戀情、一份工作或是挑戰的機會。但是你可曾想過,失敗或許只是人生的選項之一?

身為女性,我們從小就被教導要好好保護自己。出於善意的父母與老師會因為我們嫻靜有禮而給予獎勵,叮囑我們要小心,不要受傷,把我們引導至讓我們發光發熱的所在。男孩卻被鼓勵抒發己見,弄髒自己,冒險犯難,跌到了可以再爬起來。簡而言之,男孩被教導要勇敢,而女孩被教導要完美。

結果,我們變成了害怕失敗的女性。因為怕不完美,怕做錯決定,我們壓抑了自己的夢想,窄化了我們的世界,失去了快樂的機會。但其實,我們可以不必如此。Reshma Saujani在TED Talk引起非常廣大回響的演講〈授女以勇,不必求淑〉(Tech Girls Bravery, Not Perfection)促使了本書的誕生。她告訴我們要掙脫追求完美的陷阱,重新賦予自己勇氣,因為它鼓勵我們為自己發聲,把使我們不快樂的事物拋諸腦後,追求使我們靈魂發光的事物。

本書收錄了數百篇與各年齡層女性的訪談,她們以無畏的精神改變了世界。透過本書,作者坦露了她接受本身不完美的心路歷程,並與他人分享,把勇氣當作畢生習慣的反思與實踐方式,使自己成為人生篇章的作者。

New York Times bestselling author and Girls Who Code founder/CEO inspires us to discover the power of female bravery.

Do you run yourself ragged trying to not just do it all, but do it all flawlessly? Do you lose sleep ruminating over small mistakes or worrying that something you said or did might have offended someone? Have you ever passed up a big opportunity - a relationship, job, or a personal challenge - for fear you wouldn't nail it right away or look foolish trying? For you, is failure simply not an option?

You're not alone. As women, we've been taught from an early age to play it safe. Well-meaning parents and teachers rewarded us for being quiet and polite, urged us to be careful so we didn't get hurt, and steered us to activities at which we could shine. Meanwhile, boys were encouraged to speak up, get dirty, take risks and get right back up again if they fell. In short, boys are taught to be brave, while girls are taught to be perfect.

As a result, we grow up to be women who are afraid to fail. And as too many of us eventually learn, when we hold ourselves back for fear of not being good enough, of appearing less than perfectly together, or of making the wrong choice, we tamp down our dreams and narrow our world, along with our chance at happiness.

But it doesn't have to be that way. In a book inspired by her popular TED Talk, Reshma Saujani shows us how to break free from the trap of perfection and rewire ourselves for bravery. Because while chasing perfection may set us on a path that feels safe, it's bravery that leads us to the one we're authentically meant to follow. Bravery gives us the power to claim our voice, to leave behind what makes us unhappy, and go for what sparks in our souls.

Drawing on hundreds of interviews with girls and women from across the country, stories of fearless women changing the world one brave act at a time, and her own personal journey to accept her imperfections, Saujani shares an array of powerful insights and practices to make bravery a lifelong habit. By being brave, not perfect, we can all become the authors of our biggest, boldest, and most joyful life.
