The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins This little trick can change your life

Throughout your life, you’ve had parents, coaches, teachers, friends and mentors who have pushed you to be better than your excuses and bigger than your fears. What if the secret to having the confidence and courage to enrich your life and work is simply knowing how to push yourself?

It takes just five seconds to use this tool, and every time you do, you’ll be in great company. More than 8 million people have watched Mel’s TEDx Talk, and executives inside of the world’s largest brands are using the tool to increase productivity, collaboration, and engagement.

In The 5 Second Rule, you’ll discover it takes just five seconds to:

Become confident
Break the habit of procrastination and self-doubt
Beat fear and uncertainty
Stop worrying and feel happier
Share your ideas with courage

The 5 Second Rule is a simple, one-size-fits-all solution for the one problem we all face —we hold ourselves back.

The secret isn’t knowing what to do—it’s knowing how to make yourself do it.




I really learned a lot about the science behind this little rule and how one tiny action can have a tremendous impact on a psyche.  It fits into all I’ve been learning about habit, the brain and the subconscious for the last two weeks.  I really enjoyed watching Mel’s motivational talks and will continue to do so.   


CHECK OUT HER TED TALK BELOW! I just re-watched the TEDtalk.  The 5 Second Rule is about taking any action that will link/marry the idea you have with action by interrupting the pattern loop of habit so you will continue to act on it instead of dismissing it or never getting back to it.  It makes sense.  This jewel comes at the end of the talk.  I highly recommend her other talks which you can find on YouTube and her website.
