Mel Robbins is mostly known for her book The 5 Second Rule which is a revolutionary way to “hijack” your brain so we can do things. I think she is successful because she found a great way to overcome the habit of hitting the snooze button in the morning and the habit of procrastination. Because she noticed it works for her, she began to research to understand better why it works, and after that, she started to share her finding so everyone so we can all improve our lives.
Her finding is that our brain is wired in a way that stops us from getting out of our comfort zone and that’s why it’s so hard for us to do things. But if we count down from 5 to 1 and then start doing it, our brain has no time to realize what the f*ck is going on so it can’t start the stopping process.
You can find below a video made by Evan Carmichael with his view about Top 10 Rules for Success that Mel Robbins applies in her life.
