Instant Number One New York Times Best Seller

“This book will change lives.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love)

From the host of the award-winning MarieTV and The Marie Forleo Podcast, an indispensable handbook for becoming the creative force of your own life.

While most self-help books offer quick fixes, Everything is Figureoutable will retrain your brain to think more creatively and positively in the face of setbacks. In the words of Cheryl Strayed, it’s “a must-read for anyone who wants to face their fears, fulfill their dreams, and find a better way forward.”

If you’re having trouble solving a problem or reaching a dream, the problem isn’t you. It’s that you haven’t yet installed the one belief that changes everything.

Marie’s mom once told her, “Nothing in life is that complicated. You can do whatever you set your mind to if you roll up your sleeves. Everything is figureoutable.”

Whether you want to leave a dead end job, break an addiction, learn to dance, heal a relationship, or grow a business, Everything is Figureoutable will show you how.

You’ll learn:

  • The habit that makes it 42 percent more likely you’ll achieve your goals.
  • How to overcome a lack of time and money.
  • How to deal with criticism and imposter syndrome.

It’s more than just a fun phrase to say. It’s a philosophy of relentless optimism. A mindset. A mantra. A conviction.

Most important, it’s about to make you unstoppable.

What the critics say

"Everything is Figureoutable is a whirlwind of power, humor, pragmatism, and grace. Marie Forleo writes exactly the way she lives - with full-on enthusiasm, no-bullshit directness, and a ferocious commitment to self-accountability. This woman is the real deal, people. This book will change lives." (Liz Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic)

"Everything Is Figureoutable will revolutionize your life. Whatever you’re working on, dreaming of, or even avoiding, the solution is spelled out here. And if you’re thinking ‘But I can’t,’ you especially need to stop reading this blurb and just buy the book already, because as Marie will show you through the inspiring stories and practical tools in these power-packed pages, you CAN!" (Sarah Jones, Tony and Obie Award-winning performer and writer)

"What does it take to make a reader feel loved, inspired, and called out on their BS all at the same time? I don't know, but Marie Forleo has figured it out! Smart, funny, and as brilliant as it is straightforward. LOVED it!" (Brené Brown, PhD, author of Dare to Lead and Daring Greatly)

A Waste Of Time

Like most self help books, lots of talk and little substance. This industry is run by modern day snake oil salesmen. They make big promises of solving all of life's problems with simple solutions while really they're just profiting off you and provide nothing of value in return. These people are all frauds.

Action

The best part of Marie’s book is the insight to action challenges. I did things to change myself. I stopped thinking about it & did it. Her content is strategically geared toward supporting women achieving dreams. While it was valuable to me as a man, it would reach a deeper level for a woman.

JUST what I needed!

I love to listen to audible during my commute, or doing household projects - this book saw me painting my living room and shouting 'EVERYTHING IS FIGUREOUTABLE' at my walls....much in the same way that Rachel Hollis' 'GWYF' had me yelling AMEN at passing cars on the highway! LOL . What can I say, I'm a personal development enthusiast! SO many books are filled with conceptual fluff... not this one! It's a no BS dose of straight talk that was delivered at the perfect time in my life to receive a swift kick in the a$$ to get off of mine and get into action!!! Thank you Marie!! ONE REQUEST!! Could you PLEASE make a PDF available with the end of chapter questions!?!??! THANK YOU!!!

It's Life Changing!

This book is remarkable. Marie's advice is so hands-on and actionable, and her guiding words nudge you throughout the day when your'e facing challenges. Even if all you do is listen to it and you don't do any of the Insight to Action Challenges (which I don't recommend you skip, but even if you do...) her wisdom helps you make better decisions and see things from a higher and more helpful perspective.

I love that she narrates the book herself, as she's so inspiring and has such a great voice. There are plenty of stories and examples from her life that help you feel like your flops are totally normal. This book will change your life.

Surprisingly Good

I'm not sure why, but I expected this book to be fluffy and not have much value, and there was some fluff, but overall, I thought it was a great listen. The concept of empowerment that comes from "Everything is figureoutable" is really valuable. I enjoyed the book and maybe even listen again sometime!

Life changing

This is a mantra I live by. So many shifts in my life have occurred by believing, living and breathing this mantra. I’ve now taught it to my 5 year old who repeats it and can finish the phrase when I start it. I love all the personal examples both from Marie herself and others. It is truly inspiring. It has always been a challenge for me to get through any book because most of the time I kind of lose interest and the book doesn’t always keep me engaged but this was one book I had to keep chipping away at. I always looked forward to driving because that was the only time I could afford to listen given the busy life. although I had hoped to finish this audio in a shorter period of time I am extremely proud to say I’ve completed it and I’ll be sure to return to it to do the exercises. I’m thinking this book is a great gift to give to others! A definite must have book!

Honestly, this book might change my life

While I'm still in the process of implementing Marie's ideas and processes, I can confidently say that this good has a good chance of changing my life. The ideas aren't exactly revolutionary or completely new, but the delivery by Marie was exactly what I needed to get me excited about figuring things out. After finishing the audiobook I went out and bought the hardcover.

Love Marie's energy but disappointing

I am a fan of Marie's but I just couldn't connect to this book and only got halfway. I like hearing about her drive and how she shifted her career from Wall Street to a motivator, but I couldn't find myself in this book. There was a missed opportunity for her to really delve and take us to a deeper place of purpose. She didn't challenge her readers. We are already working on ourselves and figuring things out, so give us something more next time. Marie has such an appeal, so I look forward to her next book. But this book felt too obvious and just not enough.

I was wanting more how-to instead of memoir.

I don't know what I was expecting when purchasing this audiobook, but I just wasn't feeling it when I continued to listen. I got to Chapter 3 and there still isn't anything but a few pep talks and other people's examples of how they realized "everything is figureoutable." I was hoping for some real honest ways that you can beat the negative self-talk and fear that stops most of us from reaching for our goals, but I haven't found it yet in the book. I skimmed the chapter headings and it seems there is mostly more examples to come, no real detailed solutions.

I have to say though I love Marie's speaking voice. She is engaging and great to listen to, but the content of the book is what I'm not happy with. I just cannot see myself spending my scare time, a whole 8 hours, listening to this book when it's just a book of "you can do it!" and "feel-good examples." Honestly, I guess there really isn't anything "new" per say in the self-help world on how to kick start your life and get things done, but I was just expecting something else from this book. Instead of self-help-ish it is more like a memoir with Marie's and other people's stories sprinkled in.

The title itself is enough

Everything is figureoutable: that's what her mom said and did
Everything is figureoutable: that's what she did
Everything is figureoutable: that's what her readers did
Everything is figureoutable: that's what famous people did.

Other people can do it, so why can't you? Now, go figure by yourself.
2 hours into the book, and I just couldn't continue listening. The book is just piled up with examples that you can just google by yourself.

So many nuggets of wisdom and inspiration

This book fires me up to get things done, to not care what other people think, to stop overthinking.. and more. I’ve listened to this twice now since it came out, and I see myself listening many more times when I need a boost, a pick me up, a pat on the back, a kick in the butt.
There are so many nuggets of wisdom in this book that I keep in the back pocket of my brain. So many repeatable, sharable, simplified ideas. Maybe not word for word, but the effects are just as strong for me.
Better to start small and sucky than to stay small and stucky.
Compareschlager (makes you sick)
Where your thoughts go, energy flows..
Insight without action is worthless.. and many more I’ll let you find out for yourself!

Thank you Marie!

Mostly common sense

Helpful if you have never read any self-development books, ever. But a huge portion of the book is her repeating or literally reading word for word other's thoughts and motivational work.

Can't Figure Out Why this Book is So Bad!

Sorry Marie! I love you and I love your YouTube channel and your other content, but I hate your book! Too many stories! Too much filler stuff and NOT enough content!

The days of constant story telling in books is gone... and you definitely overdid it with stories in this book! People want solid content that they can apply now! My question is... "where's the beef"?

Everything is figureoutable except why you wrote such a lackluster book! Sorry... I have to tell the truth! I could not get through this book! To repeat.. I love You! I hate your book!

If you have a dream, this is an action plan

I’m a long time fan of Marie Forleo! I relate well to her as I grew up with a single Italian mom from Staten Island with an Irish dad. She has a way of simplifying what our minds make overly complex. For me, it helps me see things different and makes things attainable. I enjoy listening to the audio version in the car. I have it on so my kids can hear it.

She’s inspiring because she followed her dream, her gut and did not, and has not, stopped. Marie has a way of sharing her kindness with you that makes you want to do better for yourself. I love that she uses her gift and encourages the rest of us to use ours too! 💖

Not great

I couldn’t finish it. I don’t remember the last time I didn’t want to finish a book. It’s very, very basic. If you’ve spent any length of time on personal development, this book isn’t for you. It would be a good starting off point, probably.

storylines from other books is not original.

there are many storylines taken from other books which are cited but this could have been still a good performance if it had not been preaching and trying to self promote media opportunity

Thank you Marie for conveying your EIF philosophy so joyfully ! Really inspiring and actionable. I am not used to writing reviews but I felt it was necessary to spread the word 😊
