"This book will change lives."
--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
From the host of the award-winning MarieTV and The Marie Forleo Podcast, an indispensable handbook for becoming the creative force of your own life.
While most self-help books offer quick fixes, Everything is Figureoutable will retrain your brain to think more creatively and positively in the face of setbacks. In the words of Cheryl Strayed, it's "a must-read for anyone who wants to face their fears, fulfill their dreams, and find a better way forward."
If you're having trouble solving a problem or reaching a dream, the problem isn't you. It's that you haven't yet installed the one belief that changes everything.
Marie's mom once told her, "Nothing in life is that complicated. You can do whatever you set your mind to if you roll up your sleeves. Everything is figureoutable."
Whether you want to leave a dead end job, break an addiction, learn to dance, heal a relationship, or grow a business, Everything is Figureoutable will show you how.
- The habit that makes it 42% more likely you'll achieve your goals.
- How to overcome a lack of time and money.
- How to deal with criticism and imposter syndrome.
It's more than just a fun phrase to say. It's a philosophy of relentless optimism. A mindset. A mantra. A conviction.
Most important, it's about to make you unstoppable.

The Tropicana Orange
My mother has the tenacity of a bulldog, looks like June Cleaver, and curses like a truck driver. She grew up the daughter of two alcoholic parents in the projects of Newark, New Jersey. She learned, by necessity, how to stretch a dollar bill around the block and is one of the most resourceful and industrious people you could ever meet. She once told me she rarely felt valued, loved, or beautiful, but she held tight to the promise she made to herself that, once she was old enough, she’d find a way to a better life.
As a kid, I remember going through the Sunday paper together and cutting coupons. She taught me all the different ways to save money. She also taught me to pay close attention to the free stuff that brands would send you—like recipe books or cooking utensils—if you saved up and mailed in a “proof of purchase.” One of my mom’s most prized possessions was a little transistor radio she got from juice, for free. The radio was the size, color, and shape of an orange, with a red-and-white-striped antenna sticking out the side like a straw. She loved that little radio.
My mom is one of those people who is constantly busy. As a little girl, I knew I could find her somewhere around the house or yard by listening for the tinny sound coming out of that Tropicana orange. One day I was walking home from school and heard the radio playing off in the distance. As I got closer, I realized the music was coming from above. I looked up and saw my mom perched on the roof of our two- story house. “Moooom! Is everything okay? What are you doing all the way up there?!”
She yelled down, “I’m fine, Ree. The roof had a leak. When I called the roofer, he said it would be at least five hundred bucks, probably more. That’s friggin’ nuts! I remembered seeing some extra asphalt in the garage and figured it would just take a few minutes to fix it up.”
Another time, I came home from school and heard the radio buzzing from the back of the house. Mom was in the bathroom, surrounded by tools and exposed pipes. Dust particles filled the air. “Mom, what’s going on?!”
“Oh, I’m just retiling the bathroom,” she said. “I saw a few cracks and didn’t want it all to get moldy.”
You’ve got to understand, my mom is high school educated and this was the 1980s. It was a pre-internet, pre-YouTube, pre-Google world. I never knew where I’d find her or what she’d be doing, but all I had to do was follow the crackle of that radio.
One fall day, I came home late from school and something was different. Everything was dark. There was an unusual silence. Something was wrong. I quietly walked through the house afraid of what I might find. Where was the sound of the Tropicana orange? Where was my mom? Then I heard clicks and clacks. I followed that sound and saw my mom huddled over the kitchen table. It looked like an operating room. I saw electrical tape and screwdrivers, and spread out in front of her were countless tiny pieces of a dismantled Tropicana orange radio. “Mom, are you okay? What happened to your radio? Is it broken?”
“It’s fine, Ree. No big deal. The antenna got busted and the tuner dial was a little off, so I’m fixing it.”
I stood there for a second, watching her work her magic. Finally, I asked, “Hey, Mom, how do you know how to do so many different things that you’ve never done before, without anyone showing you how to do it?”
She put down her screwdriver, turned to me, and said, “Don’t be silly, Ree. Nothing in life is that complicated. You can do whatever you set your mind to if you just roll up your sleeves, get in there, and do it. Everything is figureoutable.”
I was transfixed, reveling in and repeating those words in my head: Everything is figureoutable. Everything is figureoutable.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
For me personally, I had a fascinating emotional journey and reaction while reading the book. I was hooked in the beginning and had a "hell yeah!" response. Like, YEAH, I can DO THIS. Then, for some reason I started to get angry in the middle—I don't know why; perhaps it's because I was starting to feel overwhelmed by how much work there is to do and how freaking hard it can be to overcome some of life's obstacles. There's something overwhelming, too, about reading so many journeys of success and feeling internally like "Well, shit, I don't have it figured out yet—look how many people have done so much with so little, so who the heck am I?"
I think this is totally normal, to be honest, and I see that some of the other reviewers have experienced this as well. At the end of the day, making work in the world can be HARD, and full of doubts.
So I put the book down for a few days—it had been a series of late nights with sick kids and slamming my head against a wall trying to figure out my latest business offering all the while working on a never-ending book proposal that's challenging me deeply on a regular basis—basically I wanted to chuck this book across the room.
Figuring out what to do next is the work of a lifetime. And it can be excruciating, it can be hard, and it can be devastating, and it can be lonely.
I found my way back to the book and kept reading bit by bit. I found reading a few pages a day was best—I read from 8pm-8:15pm, until I could barely keep my eyes open and fell asleep with the ideas. Consuming it this way was best; each idea or nugget filtered into my subconscious. Too much felt overwhelming, and I'm an ambitious lady.
The thing is, adopting a belief like this might be easy for some people. And it might be really REALLY hard for other people. It's hard to take full ownership of your next steps in life, ESPECIALLY when you've been dealt a shit sandwich for cards. By the end of reading it, my husband asked me what I thought of the book and I said "You know, I really dig it. I needed this book in my life right now." I'm glad I bought it.
WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR: Read this if you want to uplevel your belief systems and challenge yourself to grow. You must be willing to do some inner work and stay in the game when shit gets uncomfortable. Read it serially (bit by bit) if it gets overwhelming. If negative thoughts come up while reading, journal them and write them down: you might learn something new about yourself.
WHO IT IS NOT FOR: If you're looking for an easy answer or a step-by-step solution, this isn't the book. This is about a bigger philosophical, mental, mindset shift and it takes guts. Sometimes adopting a new mindset can be like turning on a light switch. Other times it feels like re-doing the electrical wiring in your house, and can take longer to do. Both versions are worth it.
I'd also say that this book might not be for you if you're really at the bottom of the barrel. It can be infuriating to hear that everything is figureoutable when you're getting knocked down by a bunch of waves—nothing feels great about having someone on the beach shout at you to keep going when you're getting slammed around in your first surf lesson. If your heart is broken or you're recovering from loss, or you're in a place where psychotherapy or deeper support is what's needed, I'd look first to books like Michael Singer's "Untethered Soul," Pema Chodron's "When Things Fall Apart," Parker Palmer's "Let Your Life Speak" or Viktor Frankl's "Man's Search For Meaning." Let yourself experience and process your heartbreak and hurt. Then, when you've found your way back to a more stable heart and a mind ready to grab onto the change you CAN make, and the things you CAN control, and you want a combination of ass-kicking to propel you in your leadership journey, check out this book.
You need to find the right messenger for you. Sometimes we can't hear something until Judge Judy tells us (or, as Marie says in the book, it might take a new friend to say something other people have been telling you all along.) Marie's style is a match for my kind of business brain, and she's been a huge help in my journey, even though I don't think I've ever told her this yet.
This book might stir up some feelings in you. That might be a good thing.
I've been a fan of Marie’s for years now, so much so that I've recommended her work on my blog (WithCheryl.co) more than 10 times now. When I heard she had a new book coming out, I was SO excited and I knew I would likely love it, BUT what I didn’t expect was the shift it made in my life. You see, Everything is Figureoutable focuses around the idea that (as the title suggests) every problem can be solved … no matter what. And, right from the get-go, she calls the reader out on making excuses that this isn’t the case for their specific situation, which is one of the many things I loved about this book. While she is inspiring and encouraging throughout, she also (and sometimes more importantly) calls you out on your BS, doesn’t let you hide behind your excuses, and reminds you that there is only ONE thing that can truly get in your way … YOU.
Marie helps you shift your mindset, thoughts, and beliefs from working against you to working for you, she teaches you how to embrace fear not run away from it, and (what wound up being the most impactful for me) she helps you define your dream and start on the path to actually achieve it.
Now, I think I should explain that I didn’t go into this book expecting to set a NEW dream for myself, but by the end of this book, that’s exactly what happened. And, I think that shows you just how powerful Everything Is Figureaboutable is, as both a book and a philosophy. I mean, she helped me discover a dream I didn’t even know I had! How amazing is that?!
It’s too early to share what exactly this book sparked for me because I’m taking things just one small step at a time, just like Marie told me too, BUT I will say this … Everything Is Figureoutable will be the reason for a big shift in my what my business, With Cheryl, offers sometime in 2020.
In the meantime, I highly encourage you to pick up a copy of Everything Is Figureoutable for yourself now. And, as you work through the book, you MUST do all of of the exercises at the end of each chapter. I cannot encourage this enough. It might seem like a lot of work (and it is), but the work is necessary for you to get the most out of this book. Don’t cheat yourself. DO THE WORK.
I’ll leave you with this … by the time I finished reading the last page of this book, I can honestly say my mindset has shifted about problems that come my way. I really do, deep down in my bones, believe that everything is figureoutable now—and because of that, I feel like I’m capable of so much more. AND, I know each of you are too.

In it, Marie guides the reader to fully absorb the belief/truth that 'everything is figureoutable' and given that beliefs are the (often hidden) scripts that run our lives, having such an empowering one firmly ensconced can really help our lives take off. With down-to-earth teaching, real-life examples (from her and from people in different circumstances) and most importantly "Insight to action" exercises/challenges for the reader, she also helps us blast excuses and fears, define what we really want and install a number of super-powerful beliefs/mantras/life models such as Start before you are ready; Progress not perfection; Refuse to be refused and The world needs your gift. When I bought the book Marie also offered a free 5-day online course with lots of further actionable stuff - she really over-delivers :)
Marie forleo is amazing. I recommend so many people to watch her show Marietv on YouTube. In this book her vibrant, funny personality still comes out on the pages. You really can tell she cares about people, she is real and relatable. This book feels like a hug to get you to do things you are scared of but also a friendly kick to make sure you do it.
Buy and read this book you won't regret it.
Thank you Marie for writing it and all that you do.
