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.”
Book written for me
The author explained in simple terms, straight to the point and easy to remember tips. The weaknesses, procrastination and other problems that were identified in this book were very well addressed, as if this was an accurate personal assessment.
I know what to do now and how to find out the "how" of doing things. So far, it explains perfectly what I am now and what I can be later. Most definitely recommend this book. I wish she could have explained the 5-second rule a little more in the book since the psychological explanation blew me away when she explained it in an interview and YouTube videos. She reminds me of a no-kidding, tell it like it is, Dr. Phil persona. That is exactly what I needed. Every success I've had were due to the "mentors" who had similar methods and attitude. I guess success has a similar trait / DNA or something to that effect.
