Is this it? Why does life seem so unfair?

It's easy to see others living our dreams. It's easy to feel held back, misunderstood and invisible, but there comes a time in our lives when we just can't take it anymore. This is when we need answers and the confirmation that who we think we are can change.

After a lifetime of comparing with others it takes courage to step out from behind the rock and change. When everyone around you appears to shine while you feel hidden and misunderstood, there comes a time to say goodbye to the story of 'I'm not good enough'.

'When Everyone Shines But You' is a new non-fiction book by passionate writer and blogger Kelly Martin. Kelly had lived the last thirty years not feeling good enough, feeling like a failure, and watching as people her own age and even younger 'appeared' to be passing her by in terms of confidence, career, relationships and prosperity. As she neared 40, something began to stir inside, an unresolved sense of 'Is this it?' and so a huge quest began, to find answers and this book was part of that quest.

'When Everyone Shines But You' takes the reader on a journey. In each chapter the author sheds light on topics from rage and jealousy to money and loneliness and so much more. This is not a ‘positive thinking’ book. Kelly is a passionate advocate of the present moment. She discourages any ideas of creating your own reality or the law of attraction. Instead she brings the reader back to the present moment, in which permission is given to be completely human.

Unlike most self-help books, in which you are seen to be broken and need fixing, here you are given permission to be who you are, as you are, warts and all, negative as well as positive.

No more trying to fix you.

No more saying affirmations when you are not feeling them.

No more trying to create your reality.

It is time for awakening to who you really are - not who you think you need to be.



  • Discover why positive thinking does not work.
  • Explore your relationship with feelings such as rage, envy and sadness.
  • See how mindful living can consistently bring relief.
  • Recognise the gift in using frustration as a motivation to step forward.
  • Give up the 'fast food' approach to personal growth and grow more naturally.
  • Learn how to experience alone time as sacred instead of painful.
  • Understand how trying to control your world has been re-enforcing your story.

The author explains that there is a natural flow to life, and that by allowing this flow we can achieve far more than by trying to control and manipulate.

It is time for awakening to who you really are – not who you think you need to be.
