Overview

LIVE THE LIFE YOU LOVE-NO MATTER WHAT!

From bestselling author and motivational speaker Lisa Nichols comes a unique and powerful inspirational program that will both move you and empower you to realize your dreams. Millions are trying to live by The Secret's Law of Attraction, but the truth is it won't work unless you flex your all-important "bounce-back" muscles, which give you the ability to successfully navigate life's speed bumps.

By developing and toning her own bounce-back muscles at critical points in her life, Lisa found the power to become her authentic self and achieve everything she dared to hope for. Now, in NO MATTER WHAT, she offers a groundbreaking program that outlines these 9 Steps or "muscles", which include among others your Confidence, Faith-in-Myself, Honesty Out Loud and Forgiveness muscles, and explains how anyone can use them to achieve happiness and off-the-charts success. In this powerful guide Lisa Nichols introduces her dynamic plan, shares her own remarkable story, and prescribes specific exercises and action steps to inspire readers to learn from their past and move toward a courageous future.

"I've watched Lisa Nichols light up rooms and inspire thousands for years. As a featured teacher in The Secret, she explained the Law of Attraction, but now, for the first time, she reveals her own secret to happiness: the Law of No Matter What. Read this book, and learn to create the things in life you believed were out of reach." --Marci Shimoff, bestselling author of Happy for No Reason and featured teacher in The Secret


"Lisa is a living example of what it takes to overcome the inevitable obstacles in your path...with the help of this book, you'll be able to soar to success--no matter what!" --Jack Canfield, Co-Author of the New York Times Bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul Series

"Lisa Nichols is a rock star of personal growth! Gutsy and authentic, in NO MATTER WHAT, Lisa uses her charismatic and influential style to teach resilience. Whether you are a seasoned student of character and enlightenment or just starting, this book is a must read, advanced course for possibility." --Stephen M. R. Covey, author of The New York Times bestseller The Speed of Trust

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Motivational speaker Lisa Nicholas has coauthored two books in the inspirational Chicken Soup for the Soul series and is a featured speaker in the DVD version of The Secret. In No Matter What! she shouts out nine empowering steps you can use to overcome any obstacle and bounce back from any setback. A reliable guide for recovering from life's speed bumps.
Publishers Weekly

With her appearance in The Secret, San Diego-based Nichols is now a star life coach and motivational speaker. In this candid, inspirational book, she crafts a program to guide people to more fulfilled, happy and purposeful lives, illustrating each chapter with her own remarkable story, which she adeptly turns into motivational jewels. From a troubled childhood-she was molested and had difficulty as a black student at a mostly white school-to teen years as a star athlete who lacked self-esteem, dead-end jobs and an abusive relationship and finally success, Nichols has gone through both the highs and lows of life. Her message is simple and follows The Secret's Law of Attraction. But this book is about the Law of No Matter What: no matter what happens or what people say, you must commit to taking action: "I will do what I need to do." And if you stumble along the way, you need "bounce-back muscles." Each of nine chapters explores a different "muscle" (faith in yourself, honesty, say yes, etc.). Nichols's infectious enthusiasm and compassion shine from each page. (Apr. 13)

Library Journal

Motivational speaker Nichols, who appeared in the hit film and book The Secret, delivers sound advice to help readers focus on goals rather than worries and to live with hope in the present instead of fear for the future. With her guidance, readers develop various "muscles" (e.g., the faith-in-myself muscle) that allow for bouncing back from difficulties and achieving dreams. Psychotherapist Robinson (Heal Your Self-Esteem) has similar goals in mind and shows his audience how to view life's challenges as adventures rather than problems. To that end, Robinson uses ten "practices"-e.g., optimism, choice, and magnetism-that can lead to a clearer sense of direction, heightened self-confidence, and greater courage. The beauty of Robinson's book is its clarity, use of case studies, and grounding in psychology. Both books are recommended for public libraries, although Robinson's is preferred.

    Lisa Nichols writes: "Are you ready to just be you? Ready to accept that even though you may not be perfect, you have an important place in the world to fill?"

    Nichols tells us her story--filled with pain and difficulties, and other people's real life situations and experiences.

    She suggests:
    Journaling'Ecercises, affirmations and dialogues
    Practicing mirror work
    Sharing experiences with an accountability buddy
    Compelling self work assignments to help push you through old limitations.

    Nichols says she wrote book for those "who've questioned their greatness."

    The book is filled with inspired action steps and quizzes.

    There are 9 major bounce-back muscles and she teaches the reader how to strengthen them--"no matter what" (her mantra.) The muscles are:
    Understanding
    Faith in myself

    Say yes
    Determination
    Forgiveness
    Highest choice

    Two books I recommend: IN DEFENSE OF FOOD & HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT: BEAUTIFY, DETOXIFY & ENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET.

    Only 9 Steps

    Usually I'm not into self-help books but gave this one the old college try. Ms. Nichols made some very good suggestions in the book. She had exercises to do and lots of self talk ideas. I still don't get it though but maybe I'm one of those people that need a little more. Now that I've read it completely, maybe I should go back and do more of the exercises she mentions. Could be that would do the trick. I would recommend it to someone that is in to self-help books though.

    Great read and reference

    I enjoyed this book. It's very inspiring and Lisa gives detailed steps on what you need to do to get where you need to get. I like her "muscles" concept, and stop the "negative" side of brain to starting the "positive of the brain when you are having negative thoughts. I've learned a great deal and I will definitely use this book as a reference.

    Reviewer: Annie Slessman

    In the style of Norman Vincent Peale, NO MATTER WHAT! 9 Steps to Living the Life You Love by Lisa Nichols provides a how-to book on self esteem and positive thinking. Utilizing the law of No Matter What, the work includes practical advice that will assist a reader in their goal to improve their lives and "live the life you deserve."

    Nichols has a great approach to self-improvement. She uses language that everyone can relate to regardless of their lifestyle or education. She takes her readers through muscle building steps including confidence, faith in oneself, taking action, saying yes, and most of all, forgiving oneself. She shares her own stories and how she utilized her own program to overcome the things that were holding her back from achieving success both personally and professionally. Her stories will seem familiar as they have been things many of us have experienced in our own lives.

    This would be a good read for people who have encountered a recent disappointment. Whether you face an uncertain financial future, have lost a marriage or deal with a mental or physical handicap, this work would help you to understand how you can utilize your own strength and determination to succeed in life.

    Best known for her work Chicken Soup for the Soul, Nichols is a motivational speaker and the founder of Motivating the Masses and CEO of Motivating the Teen Spirit, LLC.
