"It's time to flip right side up. It's time for this book title to make sense. It's time to be a triangle."
Everyone knows that sometimes, life just sucks-even world-famous actress, author, and creator Lilly Singh. In this book, Lilly provides a safe space where readers can learn how to create a sense of peace within themselves. Without sugarcoating what it's like to face adversity-including Lilly's intensely personal struggles with identity, success, and self-doubt-she teaches readers to "unsubscribe" from cookie-cutter ideals.
With her signature blend of vulnerability, insight, and humor, Lilly instructs readers to "be a triangle": You must build a solid foundation for your life, one that can be built upon, but never fundamentally changed or destroyed. As she puts it, we must always find a way to come home to ourselves-"we must create a place, a set of beliefs, a simple set of priorities to come back to should life lead us astray, which it will."
Like a wise, empathetic friend who always keeps you honest, Lilly pushes you to adjust your mindset and change the conversations you have with yourself. The result is a deeply humane, entertaining, and uplifting guide to befriending yourself and becoming a true "miracle for the world."

Let’s start with some Real Talk
This book has terrified me. I consider myself a hard worker, someone who puts my head down and focuses on the task in front of me. But while writing this book, I pushed deadlines, ignored calendar invites, and got really creative when it came to procrastinating. I reorganized my entire kitchen. I took out my label maker and labeled a package of Oreos with a label that said . . . ​“OREOS.” You know, to avoid any possible cookie confusion. I convinced myself that that was more productive than writing this book.
Why was this book so hard to write? It’s been a challenge because over the past year or two I haven’t felt like the successful, happy, energetic Lilly that everyone claims me to be. In 2020, the world quite literally collapsed, my physical and mental health deteriorated, and I have a new friend who just won’t leave, named Anxiety Singh.
I wanted to write an inspirational book. After all, I’m all about hustling, and I’ve already written a successful self-help book called How to Be a Bawse (this will be the only plug for my other book, I promise! . . . ​you should get it). I wear power suits, baby! I’m a smiley person who always seems highly caffeinated. I knew people were going to expect this book to be a literary energy drink. So, I sat down and tried writing pages filled with what I thought I was supposed to say: mantras, tips, tricks, love yourself, quote, quote, quote, insert the word “energy” ten times here. And every time I sat down to write, I got lost. Day after day I would sit at my computer and try to convince myself I had the answers for you and for me, but I simply didn’t. I wasn’t even the best version of myself and yet I was trying to get into Club Thrive like I belonged there. My life felt uninspiring and mundane.
And then a realization hit me like my mother’s slipper. Maybe this low point was actually the perfect place from which to write THIS book. You see, THIS book isn’t a book filled with ideas and thoughts I’m hoping will work. THIS book is filled with ideas and thoughts that are tried and tested by me and have worked. The only way to write this book was by going on the journey. And girl, was it quite the journ…
