This hands-on guide from Mel Robbins, one of America’s top relationship experts and radio/tv personalities, addresses why over 100 million Americans secretly feel frustrated and bored with their lives and reveals what you can 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 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.”

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

  當腦中有個想法,
  如何讓自己立刻行動不拖延?
  只要在心中倒數5……4……3……2……1,衝了!
  就能把自己像火箭一樣順利發射出去,
  無論什麼目標,屢試不爽!

  想想看,你是不是都有以下經驗:
  早上鬧鐘響,先按下「小睡一下」(稍後提醒)再說?
  就是這種慣性在扯我們的後腿,讓你沒辦法追求各種夢想,
  不管是減肥、開一家咖啡廳、在會議中舉手發言、跟心儀對象搭訕或早點起床……
  每天我們都有一百個念頭想改變自己、改變人生、改變世界,但什麼都沒開始。

  梅爾.羅賓斯曾經事業陷入瓶頸、婚姻差點觸礁又幾乎破產,
  她比任何人都理解讓自己多睡十分鐘的危險吸引力,
  失意的人生,讓她的賴床惡習更加嚴重。

  直到有天在電視上看到火箭發射前的倒數:5……4……3……2……1!
  她心想,我應該要像那火箭一樣,不顧一切,衝上雲霄。
  隔天,鬧鐘響後,她倒數五秒,竟然第一次立刻起床!第二天再試,又成功了!
  她從溫暖的被窩踏進冰冷的房間,也展開了全新的生活。
  她把這奇妙的「五秒法則」運用在生活上,
  逐一改善因行動力不足而停滯不前或崩壞的各層面,
  改善婚姻、戒掉拖延、提高效率、找到志業、脫胎換骨。

  她把這經驗在TED講壇上分享,隨即全球瘋傳,
  從大學生、運動員到領導人,人人都能應用,
  讓許多人喜出望外的是:改變,竟變得那麼簡單!

  經由心理學、大腦科學、神經科學、行為科學等研究實證,
  梅爾.羅賓斯深入淺出解釋「五秒法則」讓身體成功產生實際的行動力,
  看似簡單,卻能讓人立即行動,更是增強「勇氣」的刻意練習法。

  ◎「五秒法則」可以用來做什麼?

  五秒法則是行動心法,可運用在各層面,從小習慣到大決策,從完成事情,到改變心理素質:
  上班族用來走出舒適圈
  媽媽用來自我監督,控制情緒
  財星五百大企業領導人用來組織革新、提升營收
  失意人士用來戰勝菸癮、酒癮與憂鬱
  幫你減重成功,維持體態
  挽救失衡的婚姻、人際關係
  不靠藥物治療焦慮,停止自我懷疑,建立自信

  本書除了記錄她的故事,還有其他精采內容:
  五秒法則之所以有效,是因為它「讓行動力有了一個開關」,如何掌握訣竅,讓它一按就會開。
  五秒法則讓你停止自我懷疑、提升產能,找到自信與快樂。
  這項法則會幫你準時起床,但它真正做的是遠比這更驚人的事──它會喚醒你內在的天才、領導人、搖滾巨星、運動員、藝術家和變革管理人。

  ◎「五秒法則」風行全球
