Not entirely relatable

I enjoyed this audiobook for the most part and it was interesting to hear Mel help the people she was coaching. There were some good tips here and there but I felt like the candidates she picked all had very deep rooted problems that were quite traumatic and obvious to identify so Mel was basically only digging until she found the cause. As a person who lives a rather "normal" life without any traumatic experiences in my early life or serious issues, I couldn't relate to most of these people. I do struggle with procrastination and have some problems of my own but I don't think it's as easy to identify as the people she coached. As a result, I was only listening as an outsider hoping that it would help me find useful tips to pinpoint the cause of my own procrastination issues but couldn't.

Finished in one day...

The stories shared in this show were not only relatable, but captivating! I had no intention of listening to over 6 hours in one day, but I was so engaged that I couldn't help it. I laughed, I cried, I had my own ah-ha and "hell yes!" moments.
Mel's ability to get through to people is impressive and I hope you have your own powerful breakthroughs as a result of listening.

Great Audiobook, but Dig Deeper.

I love the structure of this audiobook. It’s packed with live coaching sessions, which is fun to listen to and dissect. While this audiobook was well edited and produced, the depth of the content is lacking for me.

Instead of tackling the more common issues like procrastination, self-doubt, grief and anger, why not delve deeper? What about people plagued with issues that are arguably just as common but far less talked about? Mel uncovers people’s faults and weaknesses (as well as strengths) by studying their subtle behaviour patterns, but I’d like to see her do this for more extreme behaviours and people.

What about people with high-functioning hyperactive disorders, people with explosive anger problems, overt megalomaniacs, narcissists, egomaniacs, etc.. What if we took highly successful, yet tortured people and tried to coach them? I want to see Mel challenged and fix those challenges as a life coach. This audiobook makes it feel too easy and leaves much to be desired.

I’m interested in what the other side of the coin looks like and how Mel Robbins would delve into the psyche of more complex, manipulative individuals as well. That would break through the thin layer of mediocrity.

Other than that, excellent audiobook.

Awful.

To be honest I didn’t get past the first interview. The woman who was having the first coaching session featured offered a few different things that she was struggling with but there was a uniting theme. However, Mel jumped on the mention that Pam (I think that’s her name) smoked and then launched into a stop smoking theme. This is obviously a good goal to work on BUT it wasn’t the topic that Pam was asking for help with, and Mel just kept going back to it irregardless.
So I gave up in frustration. Mel just came across as having too much of her own agenda.

Way to KICK ASS Mel Robbins and team

I have been following Mel Robbins for a bit now, have read the 5 Second Rule. I took a class from her and am presently enjoying a Power of You training with Mel and the team. Kick Ass with Mel Robbins is such an entertaining piece of coaching yet has unbelievable information and tools that not only help the people being interviewed but all of us who are listening and can apply to these very same things to all aspects of our lives! Mel is such an engaging person. It's like she is right inside your head because she knows exactly what I'm thinking and should be but not doing. I love all the time, effort and love Mel and the team gives each and every person who listens to them!! Mel Robbins is a life changer❤️

This is NOT a book

I was really let down by this one! First, it's not a book. It's like listening to a talk show, and when they start laughing at their own jokes, it's annoying because there is no visual. Second, some of these people have deep rooted issues that should have more attention than 10 minutes with a life coach. I don't actually believe any of these people had their lives changed from the small bits of advice they got, but admittedly I was only 3 people in when I decided to get a refund.

What we need to hear !

I have been following Mel Robbins for 9 months with her POY courses books etc and Kick Ass puts it all together !
Wish I had have heard this insight in my early 30’s rather at 61 but it’s never too late to live your full potential !

Intelligent but...

The author is clearly a great coach, but I would not buy another book given how much swearing there is. It is truly excessive and detracts from the awesome coaching.

Not what I was expecting

Was disappointed in this book, had to listen to a lot of fluff to get lesson; but in fairness I can’t get past first two hours, I’m still interested in her book the five second rule, but am going to borrow from library first this time to make sure it’s something want to own

MUST LISTEN OVER AND OVER!

I've listened to this twice now. There's so much to learn that you have to in order to pick up on everything. Although you won't relate to every story 100%, you will learn something you can apply to your own life in 100% of the stories.

I related to every session somehow! Unbelievable

even when a session would start and I thought, "this does not Interests me" I would continue to listen and evitably I found something that really impacted me in every session. Everyone should listen to this book.

A Surprise Of A Good Listen...!

After The 5 Second Rule, I guess I didn't have really high expectations here. After all, 5 Second got pretty repetitive, and Mel didn't seem to feel bad that most of that book got to be same-old/same-old. So I suppose I expected to hear people who had the same problem at the root, or had differing problems, but they wound up being solved by the same tool. But I'm a person who thrives on self-development books, so I gave this one a try.
Boy! Every single person who Mel talks to here has a different sort of problem: Business problems, relationship problems, self-acceptance problems, and the list goes on. Some have had decent childhoods (though it was interesting that the majority of iconic issues occurred when people were in 4th grade/9-years old) with remarkably wounding episodes; some have had real horror shows in their backgrounds.
But, and this I liked, Robbins has a way of cutting to the quick with each of them: You are NOT your wound, so stop acting like it. And the people wound up seeing their own parts in their problems, their own failings. Some discovered they were manipulative, some wanted all the attention, one was just plain mean. But that was gotten to quickly and the tools to change were handed over immediately, so it's not like they were beaten over the head with their flaws. Mel is not a mean person; she's just honest and yikes is she quick on the draw.
I didn't give this five-stars because for a credit, I guess I kinda expected more clients. And as far as the Performance rating goes: What can I say? A couple of them speak like they're guest-stars, hoping to become famous. And a couple of them have laughs that about drove me up the wall (okay, so I'll shut up now about the petty things, shall I?).
The best part was that, at the end of each session, Robbins wraps it all up with takeaways that both you and I are privy to. We can all take something from each and every session (and don't get all offended if you hear profanity. There's a lot of pretty common language used).
So basically, this is a binge listen (and I'm not quoting the title or Audible will hold my review or remove it).
Think about yourself, think about your own issues, and find yourself in each and every one of these people who are struggling.
You ready to end a chapter and start a whole new one?

Wow - talk about realization

After reading/listening to this you will have to have some sort of idea on what you are doing well and likely what you may not be. It's a book that provides some very real thinking and might make you revisit what's been your road block lately. Take a listen - It's very good.

Very powerful!

I enjoyed listening to all the different people and could really relate to alot of them. Mel has a unique way of getting to the root of the matter in a direct yet emphatetic way.
I am going to re listen and take notes the second time around.

Best DIY psycology audiobook

I have head a lot of performance and psychology books, I found this to be the most practical and useful.
The added bonus is one chapter is like 40 min long so you can take them in at your own pace. Listen to them slowly, digest them then move to the next chapter / session.

Nice delivery. Yet not much content for six hours

The conversations were interesting, honest and heart felt. Yet the applicable content did not require over six hpurs of audio..

Mindblowing

I got to know Mel Robbins from Impact theory , and then started following her journey everywhere I could . I decided to buy this Book to be more self-aware and understand my own thought-process and mind deeper . Throughtout each of these coaching sessions , I realised how amazing it was and how many advices could be applied to my relationships , business and life . À huge thanks from France ❤️

Outils et mise en pratique.

Si vous n'avez pas aimé son Ted talk, vous aimerez peut-être ce livre ( Je n'ai pas lu le 5 second rule).
Il s'agit de séances de coaching avec une personne différente à chaque fois. Ce qui est bien c'est de voir la pratique derrière la théorie, de voir le travail d'un coach, ce qui est très bien c'est d'avoir un debrief après chaque séance durant lequel elle va récapituler les points importants.
Il y a des histoires plus poignantes que d'autres mais elle revient toujours à l'objectif sans brusquer le coaché et pousse à se regarder sans complaisance. J'ai particulièrement apprécié la première partie des coachés, l'autre moitié concerne des situations plus lourdes. Je n'apprécie pas toujours sa méthode, quoiqu'il en soit j'en ressors avec quelque chose.
points d'attention : il y a quelques jurons mais on est prévenu dès le début du livre; il y a un jingle promotionnel entre chaque chapitre, faites avance rapide; c'est vite pénible autrement.

It will blow your mind

Mel Robbins has an incredible gift : she can see through our stories to show us what we can't see, by changing perspectives. Because she is very true about herself, she is able to relate it to her own story and put it in a way that does not make us feel guilty about our toxic patterns and allows us to get over them, in order to shift to the life we really want.
The coaching sessions are incredible, very "down to earth" kind of talk, yet lifting up like a zeppelin.
What blew my mind is that, at first, I thought "Uh, I will have to go through 8 different coaches in hope to find one I can relate to. And maybe I won't relate to any !". When in fact, I could relate to ALL OF THEM.
Every single one of these 8 coaching sessions helped me understand a pattern I have, at various levels. And all of them helped me relieve a pattern that is not helping me anymore. Because what she teaches us above all is that what we refer to as obstacles were once in our life to protect us from something. And we just have to get conscious about them to release them.
Thank you Mel Robbins, you are a gift to humanity. And I am not exagerating. You show us a very righteous path.
