I recently read the book , The 5 second Rules , by Mel Robbins.
When your alarm when up this morning, did you immediately get up? Or you hit the snooze button? Several years ago Dr.Mel Robbins had the habit of hitting the snooze button. Mel had a drinking problem, she was out of shape, and her husband business was failing. She felt like she didn’t have any reason to wake up, so she hit the snooze button. But one morning, when her alarm when on she taught about what she saw the previous night on the Tv. Before Nasa sent Rocket to the moon, they count backward 5,4,3,2,1. Mel did the same thing that morning, and get up.
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?
Using the science habits, riveting stories and surprising facts from some of the most famous moments in history, art and business, Mel Robbins will explain the power of a “push moment.” Then, she’ll give you one simple tool you can use to become your greatest self.
It take 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. There are plenty of story in this book to help you be more courageous, and take action. I highly recommend it.
