You're one decision away from a totally different life.

Going back to school.

Starting a business.

Having more confidence.

Feeling happier.

Falling in love.

Finding your passion.

Trust me.
I didn't believe it either.

Hi, I’m Mel Robbins.

At age 41, my life was a mess. I was unemployed. Facing bankruptcy. Marriage spiraling. Confidence shot. Hitting the bottle hard.

I struggled just to get out of bed. Every morning, the alarm clock would ring. I knew I should get up and deal but anxiety rushed in and I’d hit the snooze button instead. Here’s the thing. I wanted to change. I just couldn’t make myself do it. The smallest things felt impossible. I read books and bought journals. Nothing stuck. I prayed for motivation. It never came. There was literally always an excuse.

Enough was enough.

Have you ever felt so stuck you wanted to give up? Well, that was me. One night, I was drowning my sorrows in bourbon, feeling like the world's biggest loser, when suddenly a rocket shot across my TV screen during a commercial and it gave me a crazy idea - what if, when the alarm rang, instead of thinking, I launched myself out of bed like a rocket.

I tried something simple
and it changed my life.

The next morning, when the alarm rang, instead of laying there thinking
about all my problems, I started counting. Backwards.

The change was instant.

Looking back, it all makes sense. 5-4-3-2-1 helped
me close the gap between thinking and doing.
And by just taking action, my confidence grew.

5

seconds change everything.

In five seconds flat, I stopped thinking and started moving forward. I stopped listening to the garbage in my mind and started thinking positive. Over time, I not only gained self-awareness and self-confidence - I discovered the simple secret to changing your life. I call it The 5 Second Rule.

Your life is defined by the gap between
what happens to you and your reaction
to it.

The 5 Second Rule closes the gap between thinking about
what needs to be done and actually doing it.

You’ll be shocked by what you can do
with The Five Second Rule.

I gave a Tedx talk.

It worked for me, but will
it work for you?

The 5 Second Rule helps you activate your prefrontal cortex, which is the part of the brain in
charge of decision making, strategic thinking, acting with courage, learning new behavior, and
working towards goals.

Yes, it's science.

To change, you’ve got to override habits. Counting 5-4-3-2-1 acts as a “starting
ritual” that overrides your bad habits and draws focus to your prefrontal cortex so
you can take immediate control of your thoughts and actions – and help you
create positive new habits. Researchers call this nifty brain trick “metacognition.” I
call it life-changing.

I’M NO PREACHER.

I'm trying to change my life for the better,
just like you.

The truth is...

You know what to do.

You know why you need to do it.

I'm here to show you how.

AND IT’S AWESOME WHEN WE DO IT TOGETHER.
