After three years of living his dream as a professional baseball pitcher, Mike Robbins had an arm injury that benched him for good, and when this happened, he had to figure out who he was without the identity of "baseball player" - a process fraught with emotional highs and lows. He quickly realized that the self-criticism and self-doubt he was feeling are epidemic in our culture. Too often we base our value on our external world - our jobs, finances, appearance, or various other factors. Even the most successful people struggle with their relationship with themselves.
In Nothing Changes Until You Do, Mike looks at this delicate relationship and brings to light a new way to look at life, opening your eyes to your innate value. In these 40 inspiring stories, Mike shows you how to get out of your own way and make peace with yourself. With humor, authenticity, and ease, he illustrates 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, insecurity, addictions, unnecessary drama, and more. You’ll learn to have more compassion, more acceptance, and more love for yourself - thus giving you access to more compassion, more acceptance, and more love for the people (and everything else) in your life.
