About this item
Best-selling author Mike Robbins had a life that many little boys dream of. Drafted by the New YorkYankees directly out of high school, Mike decided instead to postpone his professional baseball careeruntil he finished college. After a successful stint at Stanford, he began life in the minor leagues as apitcher with the Kansas City Royals organization, where he played for three years until an injurybenched him for good. This devastating disappointment changed his life in wonderful ways that hecould have never imagined. He now teaches and speaks around the world about teamwork, emotionalintelligence, and the value of appreciation and authenticity.In Nothing Changes Until You Do, Mike’s third book, he looks at one of the most important andchallenging aspects of life—our relationship with ourselves. Even the most successful person struggleswith this delicate relationship, which has created an epidemic of self-criticism, self-doubt, and thinkingthat our value is directly connected to the external world—our jobs, our finances, our appearance, ouraccomplishments, and so on.Through 40 short essays, Mike shows readers that none of this is true, and brings to light a newway to look at life. With themes spanning from the importance of trusting yourself to the benefits ofvulnerability to the strength inherent in embracing powerlessness and change, Mike will help readersget out of their own way, so they can live a good life. He shows that with a little self-compassion and ahealthy dose of self-acceptance, anyone can turn away from the negatives that manifest because of acritical self-perception—things like unkindness, addictions, sabotaged relationships, unnecessarydrama, and more.Making peace with ourselves is fundamental to happiness. The suggestions, insights, andreminders of this book will allow readers to have more compassion, more acceptance, and more lovefor themselves—thus giving them access to more compassion, more acceptance, and more love for thepeople (and everything else) in their lives.
