“Stop Saying you Fine” by my new friend Mel Robbins, (I just finished it for the second time) is one of those books.
It's an action-packed book that is written and designed to inspire you to begin the journey toward a more powerful version of you. I need that.
A book on ACTION, would not be complete without an action-plan of its own, woven in very nicely between its covers.
Mel's promise to the reader: Follow these simple steps, and in six month's time, your life will be unrecognizable.
I hope you not only join us on this journey, but also share your thoughts, ideas, and breakthroughs during the process. Your comments are welcome and encouraged on this blog. Let us know if you are on-board. You can remain anonymous if you'd like.
Here's how we'll do it: If I were to share the activities we will include over the next seven days, there's a chance, after reviewing the info, your mind and feelings could begin to retreat and seek to keep you on more familiar ground. (By the way, that's how most people's minds work. It does everything in its power to keep you in the same, safe, comfortable routine.)
First and foremost, your commitment is key. Let's either commit to doing this, or not. Either way, it is completely up to you. Draw a line in the sand and decide now, on which side you will stand.
Day one: Face the day.
Set your alarm clock for thirty minutes earlier than normal. The next morning, as soon as the alarm sounds, open your eyes, throw off the covers, sit up and put your feet on the floor and stand up.
Your day starts now.
No delay. No pillow over the head. No snooze.
If you lay in bed more than 10 seconds before standing up, you fail the test. If you don't pass it this time, start over again tomorrow.
Do not move to day two until you have passed day one.
