A ground-breaking new self-help book based on mindfulness and self-acceptance from thought-provoking British writer and blogger Kelly Martin.


Saying Goodbye To ‘I’m Not Good Enough’

By Kelly Martin

When Everyone Shines But You brings a new experience of reality by practising mindfulness, surrender and awakening awareness, encouraging those who experience feelings of failure, frustration and hopelessness a new outlook on life.

In this book you are given permission to be human with all the flaws and emotions that arise and to welcome them as a vehicle for personal growth and awakening. Instead of using positive thinking to feel better, or to create a better life, the reader is encouraged to begin a process of more mindful living that leads to greater self-kindness, self-acceptance and compassion. 

For anyone who has felt consistently not good enough, who has felt like a failure, Kelly takes the reader on a journey through emotions like jealousy, frustration, rage and comparing to others. She gives the reader the opportunity to make peace with what arises and to awaken to the present moment. There is a clear focus away from positive thinking, the law of attraction and creating your reality, and more towards encouraging readers to embrace ‘what is’ as the answer to life’s challenges.

Unlike other books in the self-help and mind-body-spirit arena, ‘When Everyone Shines But You’ brings a down-to-earth approach to self empowerment. It is a fact that many people do feel that life is unfair and it is also a fact that people experience intense jealousy when their dreams are not fulfilled and people around them seem to be breezing through life without a care in the world. Kelly brings to the table a fresh way of seeing human emotions and challenges as a way to journey within, as a more graceful way to live life, instead of avoiding ‘what is’.

When Everyone Shines But You - Saying Goodbye To ‘I’m Not Good Enough’ is available for sale on-line at and other channels.

Quotes From the book:

“Now is the only time you have. Change is happening. Give up your desire to control the world.”

“You don’t create or write to be successful; you don’t create or paint to be famous or to increase your wealth. You do all of these things because your soul is calling you to do them.”

“Make sure you keep an inner state of flexibility, and are not tightly bound to your visions.”

“You’ll be ready for this change - when you’re ready – not a moment before. Don’t beat yourself up if you’re not ready.”

“Your life has a natural motion. Surrendering reveals how flowing this life could be.”
