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.Read more ›
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.
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"
Mel's basic premise is that the brain (readers will find many cool brain facts throughout the book) is programmed to keep the "snooze button" on and this is essentially why humans resist change. So true. Her anecdotes that describe this dilemma are excellent and readers should be able to relate to many, if not most of them. In addition, the contrast that she makes between being stuck and being in a crisis is a real revelation.
The best part of the book is the action part. Mel does a fine job of not only telling, but also showing readers exactly what to do to take action and ideally incorporate lifestyle changes. In fact, the Dartmouth-educated lawyer-turned-life coach outlines so many strategies to help you outsmart your brain that the book is as close as a real-live coach as it gets!
I especially loved the don't worry about making a right or wrong decision--just make a decision. In addition, the life map and get-off-your-butt-in-five-seconds-or-less tactics is the stuff that gives people the spark to light up their "just fine" universe like fireflies.
