“If you get anything less than six hours of sleep a night on a consistent basis you are basically going through your day with the exact same physiological symptoms as if you were drunk. You have a foggy brain, you're forgetful, you're moody, you might even notice that your balance is a little bit off, you feel kind of heavy in terms of the emotional weight in your body, so you've got to get onto a great sleep schedule.”

Stop Saying You're Fine

“Marriages suffer from this same cycle. You start dating someone with wonder and anticipation, drunk on love. You romanticize everything about your partner, and even mundane activities like going to the grocery store together can seem like a fantastic date. But then you fall into a routine, and years later, you’ve become roommates, circling the same safe topics while packing lunches, the monotony broken only by occasional date nights. Deep down, you know why these parts of your life have gone stale. It’s because nothing new is happening. You may say you fear change, but the lack of change in your life is why you feel so blah. Monotony will drive any human relationship or endeavour into a ditch.”

“Resistance loves surfing the Web, vegging out in front of the TV, sticking to routine, not picking up the phone, hitting snooze, avoiding confrontation, making excuses, rumination, and isolation.”

The 5 Second Rule Quotes

“Anytime there’s something you know you should do, but you feel uncertain, afraid, or overwhelmed… just take control by counting backwards 5- 4- 3- 2- 1. That’ll quiet your mind. Then, move when you get to 1.”

Mel Robbins
The 5 Second Rule

“As Damasio puts it, human beings are 'feeling machines that think' not 'thinking machines that feel'.”

Mel Robbins
The 5 Second Rule

“Change is hard. Logically, we know what we should do, but our feelings about doing it make our decision for us. How you feel in the moment is almost never aligned with your goals and dreams. If you only act when you feel like it, you will never get what you want. You must learn how to separate what you feel from the actions that you take. You can't control how you feel. But you can always choose how you act.”

Mel Robbins
The 5 Second Rule

“Change your decisions and you’ll change your life. And what will change your decisions more than anything? Courage.”

“Forget motivation; it’s a myth. I don’t know when we all bought into the idea that in order to change you must 'feel' eager or 'feel' motivated to act. It’s complete garbage. The moment it’s time to assert yourself, you will not feel motivated. In fact, you won’t feel like doing anything at all.”

The 5 Second Rule

“Hesitation is the kiss of death. You might hesitate for a just nanosecond, but that’s all it takes. That one small hesitation triggers a mental system that’s designed to stop you. And it happens in less than — you guessed it — five seconds.”

Mel Robbins

“I have a hard time finding the balance between not beating myself up when it doesn’t happen as fast as I’d like it to, and not wasting time while I wait for it to happen.”

The 5 Second Rule

“If you can get up on time, start your day powerfully, plan ahead, think about your goals, and focus on yourself, all before you get bogged down in your daily routine, then you will simply accomplish more. This is the first step to taking control of your life.”

Mel Robbins
The 5 Second Rule

“If you can’t get yourself out of bed, then you’ll never be able to pursue all of the other changes that you want to make in your life. And if you take that simple step of taking control of your mornings, you’ll catalyze a chain of events that leads to change everywhere.”

“It’s called 'locus of control'. The more that you believe that you are in control of your life, your actions and your future, the happier and more successful you’ll be.”

Mel Robbins
The 5 Second Rule

“It’s not safer to stay quiet. It’s not better to keep the peace. It’s not futile to try. It’s not risky. You are wrong. All your excuses and reasons are wrong. There is no 'right time' to improve your life. The moment you move you’ll discover your strength. That’s the way to bring the real you to the table — by pushing the real you out of your head and into the world. And the best time to do it, is right now when your heart tells you to move.”
