    The works of Brene Brown, Simon Sinek, and Elizabeth Gilbert have changed my worldview and, consequently, my life--absolutely for the better--so when I saw that all three recommended this book, I decided to give it a read. Unlike many of the reviewers I've read so far, I'd never heard of Marie Forleo before this week. I want to preface my review with a bit of my personal standpoint, because I do think that's relevant when it comes to self-help books. Most that I've read (or read many The works of Brene Brown, Simon Sinek, and Elizabeth Gilbert have changed my worldview and, consequently, my life--absolutely for the better--so when I saw that all three recommended this book, I decided to give it a read. Unlike many of the reviewers I've read so far, I'd never heard of Marie Forleo before this week. I want to preface my review with a bit of my personal standpoint, because I do think that's relevant when it comes to self-help books. Most that I've read (or read many reviews/quotes of and then decided NOT to read *cough*Rachel Hollis*cough*) were either heavy on the "pull yourself up by the bootstraps and get it done" mentality, or focused on slow, methodical healing of the mind and soul (often with the help of real-life therapies). As both a passionate entrepreneur and PTSD survivor, I personally tend to prefer books that fall somewhere in between--doing hard mindset work while also honoring your past and working through it, even when it means you are not creative or productive for a period of time. I am not a fan of the "pull yourself up by the bootstraps" method because when you leave the uncomfortable mental health stuff behind in favor of productivity, you end up falling short at some point. In other words, it's a method that works well, but it doesn't work long term. I found this book to lean toward a "leave the past in the past and do something with your life" mentality. Although there is plenty of mindset work within it (it's almost all mindset work, really)--it only very briefly hints at the idea of actual healing of the mind or soul. It's also generally pretty heavily steeped in positivity culture. My issue with this book is that I think ANY book that touts itself as being instrumental to helping overcome mental health, addiction, relationship problems--basically anything that has a high possibility of being rooted in depression or trauma--has. a. responsibility. The entire time I was reading this book, I was waiting for a mention of mental health: a chapter or blurb or even some "first steps" on how to first treat your depression, and then move on to Marie's methods for working through the accompanying addiction, relationship problems, getting back into the workforce, etc.--because at face value, her methods are nearly impossible to apply when creatively blocked due to depression (that's right, folks, telling yourself to just stop letting the past effect you WILL NOT help you process trauma!). I want to point out that Marie gave many examples of people who dealt with mountains of trauma and continued on to be highly productive, successful leaders in the world. And I think that's wonderful, but I believe using examples of overcoming trauma to promote any MINDSET work without acknowledging the effect that mental health has on the process is harmful... because trauma and depression live in the mind. It is true that at a few times, she even hinted at mental healing as being the "goal" that you're focused on while reading her book. But again, applying her methods to any mental health goals would be a pretty far reach because the work she's asking you do comes after healing, not before. I read this book pretty quickly because I found that most of Marie's advice just isn't applicable to me RIGHT NOW, as my current focus is my mental health (and again, from what I read about this book before purchasing, I was fully expecting this to be part of the book's journey). Marie instructs readers to stop and do the prompts (writing, not just thinking), and I did with the first two sets, but then decided to go back and do the rest further into my healing. Sure, I could in a pretty abstract way apply her "everything is figureoutable" theory to healing, but honestly, I found that this book mostly made me feel pretty bad about myself and my inability to focus on and complete her prompts. I truly believe that this book could do more harm than good for some people who are reading it with hopes of "figuring out" their depression, addiction, or relationship/social issues--and Marie does claim several times that her method works for such issues. I want to clarify that I don't think this book was bad, but I do wish that it were more specifically aimed at a productivity sector of self-help. I picked it up knowing that it was not specifically aimed at mental health, and that Marie is not a psychologist (as far as I know), but still hopeful that it would simply inspire me in the ways that other broad-spectrum self-help books have at times. Instead I found it a bit ableist and, because of that, hard to stomach. I WILL reread this book when I am able to follow along with the prompts and make use of it. I did find it inspiring and motivating at times. I found several methods and philosophies that I'm looking forward to applying in the future, particularly when it comes to making career decisions. As an entrepreneur, I absolutely 100% see the value in Marie's work, and I am even considering investing in her B-School in the future. I just don't think it's a healthy book for anyone who is struggling with mental health or trauma without a treatment plan already in place, and it will be particularly harmful for anyone who also struggles with feeling that their productivity is tied to their self-worth. It's very hard for me to apply a star rating to this book, because when I imagine any of my friends who struggle with mental health and self worth reading it, I want to give it 1 star. But the ambitious entrepreneur in me wants to give it a rave review and 5 stars, knowing that I have a whole other set of friends who would benefit greatly from this read. IF this book was being sold as a business/productivity book and not a broad-spectrum self-help book, this would be a very different review. But again, I think authors who are claiming their methods work for addiction and mental health issues have a responsibility to proceed with caution, and I don't feel that Marie did. Still, I am grateful to have discovered her work and look forward to applying it in the future.

    If you love Jen Sincero's You Are A Badass books - then you'll appreciate Marie's message too! She really does find an extra hour in the day for you, and then she finds 2 hours!! it's for any readers, in any stage of you one's life - you just have to want to give yourself good change. Funny, believable, and widely appreciated - from Cheryl Strayed, to Liz Gilbert, to Brene Brown :) Galley borrowed from the publisher.

    There were several good tidbits and reframes that were useful, but it read like a lit-crit written by a white woman completely unaware of her privilege. While she did acknowledge her immense privilege, I felt she bypassed the majority of it and it made her unrelatable. She cited poor women from countries in the developing world, and their struggles with abusive marriages and changing their lives. Then she talked about her own struggle- with learning to ride a Vespa while vacationing in Sicily???

She cited poor women from countries in the developing world, and their struggles with abusive marriages and changing their lives. Then she talked about her own struggle- with learning to ride a Vespa while vacationing in Sicily??? It felt all over the place to me. Most of the ideas are borrowed, regurgitated, or repeats of her podcast (which I’ve loved for a year now). Conveniently, most of the “figureoutable field notes” appear to be written by B-School Alumni as well. I love self-help books, but I think unconscious use of this book could cause people to bypass the incredible emotional and intellectual healing that can be done by digging deep and sitting with the mess- a la Brene Brown- before just “figuring it out.” I do, however, think there were gems and pearls of wisdom that are valuable for entrepreneurs- like myself. I just think the scope of audience should have been limited to entrepreneurs or would-be entrepreneurs, rather than anyone with most any problem. Won’t recommend, and probably won’t read again.

Marie Forleo's book is an easy read, quite inspiring, funny at times and with a clear message: you can do anything that you really want, are willing to persist for, and put in a lot of effort to make it happen. She backs it up with stories from her audience at MarieTV and podcast, as well as some academic research or surveys.

'He who has a why can bear almost any how' is from Friedrich Nietzsche not Viktor Frankl, although that is the main message behind Frankl's book, it's not his quote, he even quotes Nietzsche himself.

    It’s definitely a motivational read and I enjoyed Marie’s style of writing. I think the audiobook could be a great listen. It’s a little light on actionable guidance and advice, but if you want a pick me up read, this is a good choice.

    Hell. Fucking. Yes! I have followed Marie for years. She is a powerhouse of passion, drive, and is absolutely unstoppable, but...guess what? So are you. And Marie will show you that in this book. Funny thing - I wrote this review last night and was too tired to properly edit, so I decided to wait and let it sit there. I read it over this morning, hit save and it just kept on spinning. It never saved. I lost the entire thing. It was a bummer, when you pour your heart into something (ev Hell. Fucking. Yes! I have followed Marie for years. She is a powerhouse of passion, drive, and is absolutely unstoppable, but...guess what? So are you. And Marie will show you that in this book. Funny thing - I wrote this review last night and was too tired to properly edit, so I decided to wait and let it sit there. I read it over this morning, hit save and it just kept on spinning. It never saved. I lost the entire thing. It was a bummer, when you pour your heart into something (even as simple as a review) but because I think this book and Marie's many messages are so vital, I applied it and said well, figure it out. So, I wrote it again! And here we are. This book is both a wake you up, 'slap in the face,' and a firm spank on the ass, saying, 'go get 'em tiger.' The truth is, I've read so many books on this topic. On success, fulfillment, the human potential and possibility. I will continue reading on this topic. Why? Well, you know that feeling when you walk out of a bad ass movie and feel totally pumped? You are alive, excited with possibility because you saw possibility on the screen, that deep down you know is in you but give it 30 minutes or so after the movie and that feeling is fleeting. What if you could have that feeling all the time? What would you do with your life? Reading books like this helps to create that needed environment because your environment is so incredibly vital, especially the people. I have learned this over many years, let people label me, box me in and then I assigned that as my truth, took it in and never questioned it. Now I not only question it but refuse it. It isn't my truth and I refuse to accept what others decide of me, want of me, wish of me or 'should' on me. It is merely a reflection of their own insecurities and fears. Instead I choose to surround myself with people who believe in what's deeply and profoundly possibly, who step up to action and not just talk, who aren't the victim but the victor of their own story, who are constantly reflecting and bettering themselves. If that means those people are the very people who write these books, and being around them lights you up, as it does me, then keep reading. If that means 'cutting the fat' in your life, do it. It's hard to let go of people meaning well but not adding anything meaningful to your life, but you are worth it. You will find those people in real life because you will become one, and like always attracts like. In this book Marie covers pretty much everything I've ever read on this topic. She covers all the bullshit excuses we make up. The 'I don't have the time,' 'the money,' or the 'know how.' The limiting beliefs we have of ourselves. The fear most everyone lets drive their actions without realizing it. Instead we give it, as Marie says, pet names like concern, stress, anxiety, panic, terror and stage fright. She discusses the power and importance of belief, how to define your dream(s) and break it down to actionable tasks, the importance of starting before you're ready because you'll never be 'ready,' addresses progress over perfection, the power of refusing to be refused and the gift that you and only you have to offer the world and by not doing so is a deprivation to others and yourself. Reading this book has taken me to a deeper level within my authentic self and my relationship with my husband - my one and only accountability partner, it's let me peel back another layer of the onion of life and boy are there endless layers. From this book and what we've both been learning lately (about ourselves and our potential) it gave my husband and I one of the most profound and enlightening conversations last night and I'm so thankful we have each other, the belief in what's possible, and we have books and resources that help us check ourselves and grow constantly. If you only ever read one book on this topic, let this be the one. I believe that everyone has the power to create and be so much more. We need less sheep and more shepherds. Be the compass of your own life and make it count because, as Michael Altshuler has said, “The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot."

I’m not sure, but I do know this book is not for me.

    Normally, I am not one for self help books. However, when I read the description of this book, I was strongly drawn to it, and I’m so glad I got the chance to read it. What really drew me to this book was the idea of being multipassionate. I am good at a lot of things and I love to do all of these things, but everyone in the world seems to have chosen that one thing. They build a career based on it.

Marie’s book showed me solutions to problems I didn’t realize I had. I noticed a behavior change as I read through this book, and I have found myself to be much more productive. This book contains writing exercises after every chapter. These exercises do help, but it is important that, when reading, you are prepared to take time to complete them. If you’re stuck in a rut or feeling disheartened by life, this is definitely the book for you. And even if you think your life is going great, you may learn something from Marie! This is the book to get you on your feet and moving in the right direction.

    The Creme de la Creme of Self-Help I was only 3 chapters in when I bought a hardback copy for my sister and mom. I’ve been a follower of Marie since 2009, and I thought this book would be a cozy re-affirmation of what I had already heard. But true to Marie’s style and work ethic, she dug deep, offering precious details about her personal journey to success that have helped me feel supported in my own creative journey. I greatly benefitted from taking action with the end-of-chapter prompts. I The Creme de la Creme of Self-Help I was only 3 chapters in when I bought a hardback copy for my sister and mom.

I’m finally breaking through my blocks and making progress in business and life. Marie is the real deal. Everything is Figureoutable is an instant classic of self-help/ success lit.

    Just another self-help book!! This book focuses a lot on things like other self-help book. They tell you can succeed in your life and achieve you goals by just saying their made-up phrases (everything is figureoutable) It seems good source for someone who has just started developing themselves. And it is so boring for people who read a lot of self-help books.

    This would probably be better as an audio book read by Marie. I admire what she’s built and think there were some good exercises sprinkled throughout, but a lot of the references to her talk and the examples of “real” people reminded me too much of the circular reference promotional tactics used in The 5 Second Rule.

    This was a fabulous "how to" manual for manifestation that I think will be approachable for a lot of people who don't necessarily "believe" in the laws of attraction. In her classic, Jersey-girl style, Marie lays out real world experience and plenty of stats to make her case for why, once you DECIDE everything is figureoutable, there's nothing you can't figure out. She's accomplished amazing things and surrounded herself with like-minded others, and it has gotten her FAR.

    'Everything is Figureautable' is one of those books that promise you a new life, with a new and better future that you deserve. But unlike many such books that may leave you feeling deflated and somehow deficient (because you're not there yet, because you're not good enough, because the tools they recommend just don't sit with you), this book will leave you pumped, energised, positive and hopeful, and with that, you'll be ready to take on the word!

Marie has coached business leaders for 20 years before she wrote 'Everything is Figureautable' and what that 20-year career has taught her is all there. Her tools and ideas are firmly based in neuro- and behavioural science and they work. I write this as a person who naturally shies away from problems, preferring an easy escape of literature or film or any other distraction to actually doing what needs to be done. I'm prone to overwhelm, anxiety and panic, but that book has somehow unlocked something else in me - curiosity, excitement and an unshakeable belief that yes, everything can be figured out and yes, I can do it, so let's sit down and figure out how. I love Marie's style - honest, compassionate and fun, but also hard-love-mama and kick-your-butt motivational, and I'd encourage anyone who's ever given up and beaten themselves up about it to stop what you're doing, read this book and do the practice it contains, because honestly, it works and you do deserve it.

It’s more on the “rah rah positivity!“ side of things. Side note: she’s tiny, beautiful, and quite privileged. It’s a lot easier to get people to do what you want when you aggressively meet beauty standards. Also, while it’s quite possible that she has a good relationship, I’m very suspicious of men who date hot women almost 20 years younger than them.

    I have been following Marie Forleo for a long time and I was still amazed reading this book by the long and uphill road that she has journeyed to get to where she is. She is a true model for me. This book is a manual that teaches and not just a simple book you sit and read. It has exercises and examples and it really looks at things from every angle. I recommend it to everyone, regardless of their struggles.

    What a pleasure this was to read! Marie is so encouraging, perfectly realistic, and hilarious. Many of her lessons and mantras can be applied in any area of life, but her book is geared particularly toward the business (or want-to-be) owner. No matter who you are or what you do, though, you should read this book. It'll make you want to kick some butt.

    I am a very big Marie fan! She has changed my perspective on life and what I am truly capable of in the past few years. I don’t know where I’d be without her. “Don’t underestimate the power of honouring your unique dreams. You were encoded with irreplaceable genius born from unrepeatable chemistry which includes the size and scope of your dreams’ Follow your quirky inclinations!!

    Just what I needed at this moment! A motivational kick, during a period of a lot of self-searching. It helped me figure out what to focus my attention on in the near future and start creating a path for my next personal projects. If you like Marie, you will also love this book.

    I couldn't put this book down. It is a nonsense, practical book about how to get unstuck and face things that get ignored---old beliefs, excuses, etc. Not to mention---its hilarious. Buy two, three and give them to your friends. All joy.

    You can tell she’s been telling these stories that have a bit of truth to them but never really gets the courage to just say ... actually I didn’t get past my internship on wall street and I realised this life coaching thing was essentially what I was doing as a bartender and part time aerobics teacher. It would be more powerful if she just told it straight and owned that it took her a normal duration of time to find her thing and that once she found it she consumed every piece of literature fro You can tell she’s been telling these stories that have a bit of truth to them but never really gets the courage to just say ... actually I didn’t get past my internship on wall street and I realised this life coaching thing was essentially what I was doing as a bartender and part time aerobics teacher. It would be more powerful if she just told it straight and owned that it took her a normal duration of time to find her thing and that once she found it she consumed every piece of literature from people like Oprah, Tony Robbins, and an extensive and ever growing list to grow into an expert as a life coach. Her behaviour at the book tour event in London was strange as well. She’s a master marketer. I think she summarised a lot of other teachings and thoughts into her own format as always. Credit where it is due. It’s ok and she’s done the work to get here. Just a shame she lies so much to inflate her achievements. Updated: I’ve just finished the book. As a long time follower I need to blow the whistle. There are numerous things that are no longer matching up. Through the years, Marie has given snippets of information such as she said she had a great career on Wall Street which she left to follow her passion as a Nike elite dancer while she bar tended, then she said she worked for gourmet magazine. Now in the book she has changed it to say she was a trading assistant who left pretty early on and she mentions not Gourmet Magazine but now it is Vogue. She is NOT certified in life coaching. She was also focused on relationships only for a long time — her first book was about making men want you, and she also had a regular event called Rich Happy and Hot. It seems that B School was the brain child of Laura Roeder and not Marie either. I’ve found extensive evidence online complete with photos and old blogs. She never ever ever coached on business and it’s clear she hired consultants to rewrite b school into what it is today. Lastly there is a huge amount of evidence online if you spend even an hour on google. She shot her own workout DVD which she marketed online. Honestly there’s so much video and other coverage that online from her own posts and videos that just no longer lineS up with what this book now says. None of this is even acknowledged. I’m shaking. This isn’t right.

    This book exceeding my expectations and I’ve come To expect a lot from Marie. She never lets me down! I laughed, I cried, and most of all I was inspired. I actually did the work and answers the questions at the end of each chapter and what a difference it made. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to accomplish anything in life and anyone who has ever made an excuse for themself.

    Highly recommend this as an audiobook, since Marie is so fun to listen to. There's nothing ground-breaking here, but she's highly inspirational and listening to this book gave me a real boost. Thoroughly enjoyed, and would especially recommend this to other female entrepreneurs.

    While the message is the same as a ton of other books out there, her approach spoke to me. Good helpful hints and I took lots of notes.
