Publisher's Summary

Right now, over 100 million Americans secretly feel frustrated and bored with their lives. If you've come to regard yourself as your own worst enemy; if you constantly daydream and wonder, "Is this all there is?"; if you have a tendency, when asked how you're doing, to just say "Fine," you may be one of them. If this sounds familiar, there's clearly something missing from your life. This book will help you discover what it is, and how to win it back.

Written by Mel Robbins, one of America's top relationship experts, this hands-on guide not only shows you how to put your finger on the problem, it reveals what to 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 importantly, a unique set of tools for getting you where you want to be. In Stop Saying You're Fine, she draws on the latest 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 amounts of rich possibility---a process she calls "leaning in"---you can make tiny course corrections 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.

    "Effective and inspiring"

    At first the narrator was slow to pique my interest. Then I got over it and really enjoyed her narration and the content. I am a self-help book lover. Of course, I listen, but don't really do anything about it. That's what this books about, getting yourself to do what you know you should, even though you don't want to.

    "Exceptional truth"

    I saw Mel Robbins do her TED talk and just had to get this book. Thankfully it fulfilled many of my expectations. I only think it might have been better if the author had read her work herself. Thanks for a powerful book from a powerful person.

    "No surprises here"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    While this book held no dazzling insights, it did act as a reminder to become more focused on goals and to take action. She provides clear action steps and encourages readers to get take action. She makes it clear that the reader alone is responsible to get things done and to move towards their goals. Don't have any goals? She also provides help to identify goals based on your own interests and experiences.


    What didn???t you like about Joyce Bean???s performance?

    While the book's strength lies in the action steps provided, the weakness in this audio version is the narrator who sounds angry and annoyed throughout. While Robbin's words clearly place responsibility on the reader, they are made harsh by the narrator. The reader feels shamed at the mess they've made of their lives and the actions they haven't taken. I found her tone to be sharp and cold. I doubt that the author's intent was for readers to feel as though they've been scolded.

    "A lifesaver"

    Daily I have leaned on Mel's incisive spotlight on the process from stuck to a more powerful you. Have never had better guidance through life's challenges. Thankfully I have practiced her easily understood steps and learned to have my hand on the tiller of my life and a clear head through the storms. I am now so grateful for the storms because with Mel's guidance I am emerging stronger, and healthier than ever before.
