Thursday, April 13

My rating:
5 Stars…
Quote…The moment you have an instinct to act on a goal you must 5-4-3-2-1 and physically move or your brain will stop you.
Synopsis:

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 of 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 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.

What I loved:

What I loved about this book was simple. Just ignore your brain and do what you need to do. Even when you don't feel like it. Even when there's something else you want to do more. Just suck it up, buttercup, and do what needs to be done.

That's pretty much the message to take away from this book for me. And it's a message I really like.

This ain't my first rodeo - I've read Oprah, and Tony Robbins, and a million other self-help gurus who tell me about motivation and goal setting and all that good stuff. I can do those things they tell me, except most of the time... I just can't be assed. This book taught me how to ignore my ass and just get it done.

Also, it has lots of social media examples which can help the more skeptical amongst us.

Also, it has some amazing quality freebies included with purchase, and freebies are always my thing.

What I didn’t love:

Nope, can't think of anything.

Overall…

I love it because it has practical, physical, hard copy tips on how to actually get off your ass and do things. And Mel Robbins is funny. And it's short, so you don't actually lose anything by reading it in a day. And there's also a TED talk if you just want the nutshell version before you start.
