Ep 11 Show Notes: Rachel Hollis, maybe you should start apologizing.


Plagiarism Accusations

Posted on Rachel Hollis’ Instagram. Robin Sharma tweeted “Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life,” and has been commonly said since 2014.

On Instagram Rachel posted “Ambition is not a bad thing. In fact, the definition is downright poetic: ‘a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work.’ – An excerpt from Girl, Stop Apologizing coming at you on March 12th!”. However, Ambition is Not a Dirty Word is a 2008 self help book by Debra Condren.

Jim Rohn is the most often credited motivational speaker for this statement. His website says “If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.”

Rachel’s second book caused some questions as well – it was very similar to the title of a book “Hey Ladies, Stop Apologizing. The descriptions are even similar….

Hey Ladies, Stop Apologizing: “My mission is to bring awareness to your bad habits, to push you out of your comfort zone and into action, and to motivate you to reach up, dream bigger, and aspire for leadership positions in all areas of your life,” Jovanovic writes.

Girl, Stop Apologizing: “With a challenge to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and believing in yourself.”
