From Publishers Weekly

With her appearance in The Secret, San Diego–based Nichols is now a star life coach and motivational speaker. In this candid, inspirational book, she crafts a program to guide people to more fulfilled, happy and purposeful lives, illustrating each chapter with her own remarkable story, which she adeptly turns into motivational jewels. From a troubled childhood—she was molested and had difficulty as a black student at a mostly white school—to teen years as a star athlete who lacked self-esteem, dead-end jobs and an abusive relationship and finally success, Nichols has gone through both the highs and lows of life. Her message is simple and follows The Secret's Law of Attraction. But this book is about the Law of No Matter What: no matter what happens or what people say, you must commit to taking action: I will do what I need to do. And if you stumble along the way, you need bounce-back muscles. Each of nine chapters explores a different muscle (faith in yourself, honesty, say yes, etc.). Nichols's infectious enthusiasm and compassion shine from each page. (Apr. 13)

Format: Hardcover
You may know Lisa Nichols from the breakthrough DVD "The Secret". This book "No Matter What" is absolutely phenomenal. It isn't just another book about the Law of Attraction, in fact, the book delves into and thoroughly explains Lisa's own Law of No Matter What, a Law that has made her infinitely successful as well as hundreds of others who have learned to apply the various emotional muscles that make up this Law.

I had heard of this book's release several months back preordering through Amazon - I couldn't wait to sit at the feet of Lisa to learn of her amazing life strategies - strategies that have helped a countless number of troubled teens to live a productive "normal" life. I love Lisa's style. She completely opens up and pours forth her very soul. She holds nothing back. Her life story is both moving and touching. There were several times that I felt tears for Lisa - she has been through a lot in life - yet look at what she has become! The experiences Lisa went through had a purpose - to help others through the exact same trials and tribulations. And she does this so well.

If you are hesitating wondering if you should purchase this book - don't. I guarantee that you won't regret your purchase. If you want a book that rehashes the same old material - that attempts to explain the Law of Attraction or "The Secret" in greater detail - this is NOT that book. This is NEW material that you won't find anywhere else! The emotional muscles that you will develop through reading the book and applying the exercises are worth the price of this book a thousand times over. I would happily pay much more for Lisa's book - be glad that you don't have to.

Reviewer: Annie Slessman

In the style of Norman Vincent Peale, NO MATTER WHAT! 9 Steps to Living the Life You Love by Lisa Nichols provides a how-to book on self esteem and positive thinking. Utilizing the law of No Matter What, the work includes practical advice that will assist a reader in their goal to improve their lives and "live the life you deserve."

Nichols has a great approach to self-improvement. She uses language that everyone can relate to regardless of their lifestyle or education. She takes her readers through muscle building steps including confidence, faith in oneself, taking action, saying yes, and most of all, forgiving oneself. She shares her own stories and how she utilized her own program to overcome the things that were holding her back from achieving success both personally and professionally. Her stories will seem familiar as they have been things many of us have experienced in our own lives.

This would be a good read for people who have encountered a recent disappointment. Whether you face an uncertain financial future, have lost a marriage or deal with a mental or physical handicap, this work would help you to understand how you can utilize your own strength and determination to succeed in life.

Best known for her work Chicken Soup for the Soul, Nichols is a motivational speaker and the founder of Motivating the Masses and CEO of Motivating the Teen Spirit, LLC.

I never heard of Lisa Nichols before a friend mentioned Lisa's No Matter What! book in an email newsletter. I liked the woman's energy and smile from her book's cover and took a chance and bought the book. In a field flooded with self-help books, Lisa stands out just like her smile. After reading a few chapters, I got back on track with my goals, which I'd allowed to get derailed while attending to life's details. So I felt like writing in with five stars, if you too are looking for a good kick in the... I mean, inspiration moving forward.

Lisa Nichols is a Powerful Motivator!
Her book embodies the laws of success and how to achieve it 'No Matter What'. Lisa's essence, along with her teaching and coaching, is illuminating. Lisa is a modern-day philosopher committed to your success.
If you ever get an opportunity to see her and listen to her speak, do it.
She uplifts your spirit, awakens your core, and motivates you with her 'story' and how she believed in self-achievement. She is authentic. She is dynamic and her book 'No Matter What!' is a must read.
It is an honor to be in her presence.

This is an amazing book. It has wonderful tools and resources that take you step by step on how to build a life of freedom and emotional strength where you can be resilient in all things. Additionally, Lisa's testimonies are as real and approachable as she is in person. The "No Matter What" mindset is exactly that- a mindset and not just ideas to ponder upon. She guides you through real life examples that are applicable to any life experience. It guides you through a purposeful and intentional way of living your life; where you can stop the negative self talk, be bold and courageous, get focused and make clear decisions about how you will live your life. I recommend this book for both teens and adults. Excellent!
