THE 5 SECOND RULE, MEL ROBBINS IS SHAKING THE WORLD UP TO A HIGHER PLANE
One of the biggest, if not the biggest tragedies in life is how people become their own obstacle, constantly turn their backs on their own lives, shoot themselves in the foot, and behave in ways that run counter to their wishes, hopes, and dreams. I have long observed this and feel a great sense of excitement getting this piece from Mel Robbins. I know that practice in the body is the key…that changing the body changes the mind, and an active meditation is the best and most effective meditation for contemporary minds.
After listening to her book, THE 5 SECOND RULE, I am listening to whatever she has recorded, to bolster my life skills and understand the subconscious from another point of view. She speaks so that everyone can understand. The subconscious rules us whenever we are on auto pilot (habitual thoughts and patterns). When nobody is “home”, old patterns run the show.
The missing link that Mel Robbins filled in for me is this: We are making tiny decisions all day long that add up to create our lives. Drawing from neuroscientist Damasio, 95% of the time these decisions are based on how we feel at the moment. And we never feel like doing anything that’s change, or challenging, or we perceive as hard, and we never will, she proclaims. It’s true. The subconscious keeps the status quo at all cost. There is a window between receiving inspiration and action that lasts a few seconds, during which time, we can find a thousand reasons why we are unable to do that which we are longing to do. Thus, we don’t move in everyday courage.
So, on behalf of your dreams, your soul mission, and your greatness, please invite the whole family and listen to this interview. Listen to her book in her voice. She has earned my respect, for this is a woman on the path to help as many people as she possibly can as fast as 5 4 3 2 1 GO. It’s a really significant simple action and tool for life.
