Best-selling author Mike Robbins had a life that many little boys dream of. Drafted by the New York
Yankees directly out of high school, Mike decided instead to postpone his professional baseball career
until he finished college. After a successful stint at Stanford, he began life in the minor leagues as a
pitcher with the Kansas City Royals organization, where he played for three years until an injury
benched him for good. This devastating disappointment changed his life in wonderful ways that he
could have never imagined. He now teaches and speaks around the world about teamwork, emotional
intelligence, 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 and
challenging aspects of life--our relationship with ourselves. Even the most successful person struggles
with this delicate relationship, which has created an epidemic of self-criticism, self-doubt, and thinking
that our value is directly connected to the external world--our jobs, our finances, our appearance, our
accomplishments, and so on.
Through 40 short essays, Mike shows readers that none of this is true, and brings to light a new
way to look at life. With themes spanning from the importance of trusting yourself to the benefits of
vulnerability to the strength inherent in embracing powerlessness and change, Mike will help readers
get out of their own way, so they can live a good life. He shows that with a little self-compassion and a
healthy dose of self-acceptance, anyone can turn away from the negatives that manifest because of a
critical self-perception--things like unkindness, addictions, sabotaged relationships, unnecessary
drama, and more.
Making peace with ourselves is fundamental to happiness. The suggestions, insights, and
reminders of this book will allow readers to have more compassion, more acceptance, and more love
for themselves--thus giving them access to more compassion, more acceptance, and more love for the
people (and everything else) in their lives.
