Book Description

Right now, over 100 million Americans secretly feel frustrated and bored with their lives.  You may be one of them if…
*you’ve come to regard yourself as “your own worst enemy”
*you’ve developed a commute-work-commute-sleep routine that seems endless
*you and your significant other treat each other like roommates
*you constantly daydream and wonder, “Is this all there is?”
*you sense a potentially hot relationship with someone next door, down the hall, or in the adjacent cubicle but somehow it never happens
*you worry that no matter what you do to stay in shape, the battle is already lost
*you have a tendency, when asked how you’re doing, to just say, “Fine.”
If any of the above 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 and radio/tv personalities, 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 important, 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 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.”

5.0 out of 5 stars A Life Changing Book April 19, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
From my wife Sarah: Once in a while a truly great book comes along that can change the course of your life. This book has that potential. In fact, once it's released we want to give copies to the people we care about.

I think the title doesn't quite express what this book is about. If I had to summerize the premise of this book in a short paragraph, I'd say the following:

As humans, we're biologically programmed to avoid change. Because of this, we live unfulfilled lives, missing out on so many of our hopes and dreams. This book teaches us how to trick our own brains into taking the small steps that can make huge positive changes in our lives.

It's fantastic! Even before I got 1/4 of the way through the book I started making changes in my life. I did something I've been wanting to do for years but didn't until now...

Here's some of what's great about this book:

1. It's easy reading and easy to understand. There's no struggling through as in many self-help books. It's interesting, full of useful information, and includes real life examples of people's lives.

2. It's practical. There are easy to apply steps that can really make a difference. In fact I'm finding that it's impacted so many areas of my life already. I'm just thinking differently.

3. The book hits home. I just kept recognizing myself as I read. I think most people will see themselves.

Is this the answer for everyone? I don't think there are many people on this planet who couldn't benefit from reading this book. However some people have some things going on that are much more complex than what this book covers. Regardless, it's packed full of powerful insight and great advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to take action! March 28, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Stop saying you're Fine is a light-hearted,self-help book that will give you the tools to achieve your aspirations and goals. Mel Robbins takes you by the shoulders and shakes you so that you want to "Wake-Up",stop talking, and take action in every aspect of your life. I found the book very helpful and insightful because things I had been doing in my life, I didn't realize they were destructive to my mental well-being and my own sucess. The author gave great advice about making your goals public and I like the advice of making your goals public because this information has already helped me in my professional life, so that I won't continue to sabatoge myself by making the same mistakes. You will find yourself immediately inspired to become the person you really want to be. You can apply the advice to just about anything and get the desired affect you want.

Break the cycle of counterproductive behavior that has not help you so far and do something with yourself is the general tone of the book. Robbins' advice will allow you to step back and look at what you have been doing wrong so that you can then make the necessary adjustments and become a better you. This book is easy to follow with good examples and anecdotes that will make it very enjoyable and inspirational.

Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
One of the most interesting things in this book, is how Mel Robbins get you to admit that in at least one of the seven areas that she defined: Family, Love and Sex, Spirituality, Career/Purpose, Friends/Community, Body/Health & Money you are not fine as you may try to convince yourself you are.

The book is divided in 3 parts, Part 1: Why you aren't getting what you want, Part 2: The Method for Becoming Powerful and Getting What you want and Part 3: Finding the Stamina to keep Getting what you want.

The first Part goes into explaining why you are `Stuck' the second part is how to make a plan or `Map' and the last one in how to continue after you leave the book.

One of my favorite quotes of the book: "You need to recognize that the risk of moving toward your dreams is much lower than the slow, everyday punishment you inflict on yourself by suppressing your dream"

This book can get you to recognize that not all may be fine, and can give you a boost to beat resistance. The book also said: "Resistance is about never living the moment" and it's so true. We all deal with resistance, and we all stop living in the moment.

So read the book and live on the moment, and like any of this kind of book, to be useful Mel Robbins remind you that: "Do Nothing may fell Easy, but it Makes you Unhappy"

5.0 out of 5 stars Action Is The Key To Success March 24, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When it comes to self help and motivation books most of the general concepts are ones we are all familiar with, yet it is motivating to get pointers on how to change our mind set and take a proactive role in our lives. This book is mainly about taking action to get the things you want. It is about taking a good hard look at your life and whether you are stuck in a rut and how to break free from it.

What I like most are the exercises, action steps, examples, and case studies. I loved the part where Mel Robbins talks about how we can turn a dream into a reality with action. I thought this was a very powerful point and a great way to sum up the point of the book. This book will help with ending limiting beliefs which can prevent us from creating the life we want. When we learn to dismiss our limiting beliefs we are much more prone to act and create the things we want and deserve.

It's about breaking addiction and routine and living the moments that life is made of. When we get an impulse, if we act within the next 5 seconds it will become an action, instead of another dismissed thought. This book was an easy read and a wake up call to ask the hard questions about our own lives. It's time to take charge and take baby steps on the path of creating the lives we want and this book can guide us along the way.
