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.

STOP and buy The Five Second Rule instead.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I LOVE Mel Robbins. However, I first listened to her newest book The Five Second Rule and the bulk of this material is in The Five Second Rule but is fresher in that new text and has been rebranded. This is What The Five Second Rule was Before I Called It That.

What didn’t you like about Joyce Bean’s performance?

She isn't Mel Robbins. Mel is a renowned speaker and has an amazing way of delivering her message that is very engaging. Hearing someone else "pretend" to be Mel isn't Mel. Shame she didn't record the audiobook of this herself but she does in her next title that I mentioned above.

Any additional comments?

Don't get me wrong, love her, love the message, love the content but so much is repeated it's just better to buy the newer book with newer name and you'll still get 90% of the information in Mel's own voice.

humble pie never tatsed so sweet

I'm a huge fan of Mel's work since i first started reading her articles in Success magazine. (top fav by the way) This listening was a well deserved punch in the gut. "Internal snooze button?" Niiiice. looking forward to more from my girl Mel.

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.

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.

I am better!

I love this work and will listen again even when I am not "stuck". Probably the best how to book in a decade. Love Mel's approach, personality and relatability. It's like taking advice from my best friend.

This actually provides real motivation and action.

Fantastic. This book is not fluff and actually inspired real action. I honestly feel like this was the book that made things finally "click" for me! Thank you!

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.

The reader killed it for me.

I couldn't even get through chapter 2. I guess i should have listened to this one first. Mel just puts enthusiasm into it. This reader is just so monotone I couldn't even finish it.
