Publisher's Summary

We live in a culture that focuses on the "bad stuff". We're constantly bombarded with negative messages from the media, advertisers, politicians, and even the people around us. Worse yet, many of us are so critical of ourselves that we're our worst enemies.

But help is on the way. Focus on the Good Stuff offers a plan for dispelling the cloud of negativity that surrounds us. Mike Robbins has created a powerful yet simple new approach for mastering the one thing we need most of all to achieve authentic happiness and be of service to others - that is, to practice the art of appreciation.

Written by a former professional baseball player whose career ended with an injury to his pitching arm in the middle of his third season, Focus on the Good Stuff is filled with passion, authenticity and humor. Author Mike Robbins offers a step-by-step program with exercises for overcoming negative influence and obstacles, creating a truly grateful approach to life, and establishing an environment that can support success and peace of mind.

Not that great

This book is only okay. It isn't worth the time. I recommend a book titled, "Thanks!" by Robert Emmons over this book.

Good Book if you listen to the msaage

I had the pleasure of seeing Mike in person as a guest speaker at my companies annual conference. The ideas and suggestions he gave were highly valuable to our team and will make a lasting impact to our organization. The simple principle of genuine appreciation is to often lost in today's microwave world. Take the time to give appreciation to those around. Its a simple concept we take for granted.

He talks Too fast!

I did not enjoy this book being read by the author. The information was good but it felt like he was speed reading.
