Product Description

This hands-on guide from Mel Robbins, one of America’s top relationship experts and radio/tv personalities, addresses why over 100 million Americans secretly feel frustrated and bored with their lives and reveals what you can do about it.
 
Mel Robbins has spent her career teaching people how to push past their self-imposed limits to get what they truly desire. She has an in-depth understanding of the psychological and social factors that repeatedly hold you back, and more important, a unique set of tools for getting you where you want to be. In Stop Saying You’re Fine, she draws on neuroscientific research, interviews with countless everyday people, and ideas she’s tested in her own life to show what works and what doesn’t. The key, she explains, is understanding how your own brain works against you. Because evolution has biased your mental gears against taking action, what you need are techniques to outsmart yourself.
 
That may sound impossible, but Mel has created a remarkably effective method to help you do just that--and some of her discoveries will astonish you. By ignoring how you feel and seizing small moments of rich possibility--a process she calls “leaning in”--you can make tiny course directions add up to huge change. Among this book’s other topics: how everything can depend on not hitting the “snooze” button; the science of connecting with other people, what children can teach us about getting things done; and why five seconds is the maximum time you should wait before acting on a great idea.
 
Blending warmth, humor and unflinching honesty with up-to-the-minute science and hard-earned wisdom, Stop Saying You’re Fine moves beyond the platitudes and easy fixes offered in many self-help books. Mel’s insights will actually help vault you to a better life, ensuring that the next time someone asks how you’re doing, you can truthfully answer, “Absolutely great.”

Review

"Why is it so hard to do the things that we know will make us happier? In Stop Saying You’re Fine, Mel Robbins gives funny and sharp advice that''s not only thought-provoking, but also action-provoking."
--Gretchen Rubin, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project

"Mel Robbins is one of the most entertaining and compelling voices today.
 Read at your own risk. Mel will obliterate your excuses and leave you inspired, empowered and on fire."
--Darren Hardy, Publisher of Success magazine and bestselling author of The Compound Effect

Mel Robbins has the guts to tell you why your brain is your biggest problem – but only if you listen to it.  Here, she tells you how to power through and get what you want.   I , for one, am listening.”
Chris Brogan, President of Human Business Works and co-author of the New York Times bestseller TRUST AGENTS

"In STOP SAYING YOU’RE FINE, Mel Robbins draws on everything from cutting-edge research to countless real-world case studies to create a wonderful program for anyone who''s ever wanted to stop wishing and start doing.”
Marci Shimoff, New York Times bestselling author of LOVE FOR NO REASON and HAPPY FOR NO REASON

Quit whining, stop saying you’re fine, and just snap out of it.  Easier said than done, of course, which is why this roadmap is so remarkable.  It’s jam-packed with concrete steps to pave the way.”
—Tory Johnson, Workplace Contributor for “Good Morning America” and CEO of Women for Hire

“STOP SAYING YOU’RE FINE nails a national problem: our tendency to try and be strong and stay the course--when it''s the course we have to change, and strength is not working in our favor! In this no-nonsense book, every page demolishes the excuses we all make for not moving ahead with out lives, and gives us solid practical assignments that help us be better, happier, more fulfilled. Robbins is wonderfully inspiring and helpful, but also hugely entertaining -- moving forward doesn''t have to be dull or depressing!  You’ll be surprised how her small suggestions can create life-changing new directions. STOP SAYING YOU’RE FINE deserves to be a best seller.”
Pepper Schwartz, PhD, Professor of Sociology, University of Washington, and author of PRIME: ADVENTURES AND ADVICE ON SEX, LOVE, AND THE SENSUAL YEARS

CHAPTER ONE

Stop Hitting the Snooze Button

Gain Power by Taking Action

There are some days when you just feel more powerful. You force yourself to get up early and break a sweat before everyone else wakes up. That sets the tone for the rest of your day. Your coffee tastes especially good, and the commute doesn''t suck. At work, you go the extra mile on a project and come off looking like a hero. Afterward, you meet some friends whom you haven''t seen in months, and have a couple of drinks on an outdoor deck in the cool summertime air. Someone hands you tickets he couldn''t use. You embrace spontaneity and go see a great show. Afterward, you drive home by moonlight, have great sex, and drift off to sleep on a cloud.

We''ve all had days when we feel excited about our lives. We feel young, confident, and alive. Everything clicks. We feel like we''re going somewhere, like we have momentum. We become more powerful versions of ourselves.

The powerful you is always there waiting and you can tap it anytime you want, if you know how. It''s the part of you that loves discovery, curiosity, challenges, exercise, connecting with other people, checking off goals, taking action, heading somewhere, and talking out loud. It is a force inside you that wants to grow, move, and expand.

At the same time, there''s an equal and opposite force that works inside you to hold you back. You were born with resistance. It''s an inner, evolutionary bias to take the safe bet, the sure thing, the known path. Whenever you''re feeling bored, bummed, or broken, resistance is winning in your life. Resistance loves surfing the Web, vegging out in front of the TV, sticking to routine, not picking up the phone, hitting snooze, avoiding confrontation, making excuses, rumination, and isolation.

Resistance will keep you in place; the powerful you will push you ahead. You will always feel tension between these two forces, between your current life and your desire for more. The direction you choose is entirely up to you. Every single day of your life, you have the choice to stay where you are or move your life in new directions. The question is, Will the powerful you awaken and start taking action, or will you wait just a little longer and delay the joy, satisfaction, and fulfillment you deserve?

I saw the Tedx talk with Mel Robbins and loved it so bought her book a couple of days ago. How inspiring! She says to act quickly instead of second guessing (I am paraphrasing) and so I have been.

I thought, I want to leave an Amazon review for a product yesterday and did it. I have had an Amazon account for 11 years and have not left a review in all of that time although I shop here regularly. I always wanted to because I read so many reviews, and I wanted to contribute. However, I ignored the impulse to do it using excuses such as "what if my review sounds silly" or "who would care what I have to say"... etc. But I ignored it and started leaving reviews after all of these years! Why? Because I wanted to. And this book is about doing what you want to do!

It may seem like a small change (it''s a big change for shy me!) but there will be many more I am certain. I will update this review soon. I am only 20 percent through the book and she already inspired a change in me. This is proof!

Thanks Mel!

Update 3-29-17

I finished the book shortly after leaving my review... wonderful book. I have read motivational books before but this is my favorite one because it has inspired me, (and not just for a couple of days after reading it)... and the inspiration has led to action and PROGRESS.

I have mapped out my goals for the year and figured out ways I can reach these goals by working on them 10-15 minutes per day or with a small check off list. I looked at my never-ending to do list and discovered I don''t need to do most of those things- I want to accomplish things that are meaningful to me.

I get the negative voices all the time that say "I am too tired" or "I can''t because it is too difficult" or "I can''t because it won''t work"... and I ignore them because those excuses will not help me reach my dreams.

A cool thing about reaching these goals is it may inspire others in my life who feel stuck. If I can do it, they may feel like they can, too. I want to do that. This book will help you do that.

I finished the book in a week and i have to say it helped change the way i think about things when i put them off to a later date or time.I understood how we put off things to make us feel better and how toxic that habit is to progress in life.Like the author says this book is not about Motivation (P.S.-Motivation is Bu**Sh!*!! , in her own words).This book tells you that if You dont get up and do your job ,nobody is going to motivate you to do it and to get out of the head space that is bothering you to take the right step in the right direction.I am glad i got this and the reason i am taking my time to write such a detailed review is that, this book helped me-i felt stuck for 3 years and I didn''t exactly know why-this book helped me decode that thought for me and it didn''t magically change my life completely but defenitely helped me get better and i hope it does the same for you.
All the very best and wish you great things in life❤️

This book was one of the most helpful self-help /coaching books I have ever read! It made a huge impression on me. It taught me to live powerfully and to recognize when I feel stuck and to take action.

I was so moved by this book and found the steps to be simple and change for the better to be achievable. Mel Robbins breaks down life changing steps into small pieces. And it is written in simple very direct language that is comfortable to read and take in.

I am actually re-reading the book. I found that I was noticing that stuck feeling in my life again and decided that I needed to re-visit this book. I am getting even more out of it this time. And, just like the first time, I feel better and more empowered.

This book gives the reader ways, strategies, and tasks to help them realize that they may be stuck in areas of their life. It could be in their career, relationships, etc. The ways, strategies, and tasks are things that everyone can do in order to change their life and the different situations that they experience on a daily basis for the better. The book makes the reader stop, ask themselves, and think why they have not taken ownership of the situations that they face, the outcome of those situations, and ultimately, why they haven’t taken ownership of their life yet. We are capable of controlling our own destiny and where we end up in our life. We just have to put in the effort and the work for the results that we want.

The audio sample sounds of monitoring.... and all reviews said the same thing. My brain wants to buy the audio version, but the voice of the speaker and the review of it makes me feel drowning. After the 5 second rule I every time start to say No... a do it over again will be awesome * but please with Mel or a speaker with more power behind the voice. I would buy
