Mel Robbins – F— YOU – How To Stop Screwing Yourself Over
How many times in your life have you stopped short of getting what you really want? With 1/3 of Americans truly not happy, as Mel Robbins says, we need to be honest with ourselves.
We have an inner snooze button that stops us from moving our ideas to action – we hit the snooze button in our lives and stay in our comfort zone – warm bed, miserable jobs, etc.
In any area of our lives we need to change she says we will never feel like it and scientist call it the activation energy or the force required to force you to change.
It is simple to get what we want but it is not easy – it requires us to force ourselves. Our emergency brake in our minds stops us from doing something different from our auto pilot routines and decisions.
Her point is that “feeling” is not what we should focus on but on what we do want. In her book, Stop Saying You are Fine, she suggest you consider the phrase, “yes, and” rather than “yes, but” to move us closer to what we want.
Hope you enjoy since I know many of you are looking to get what you want!
