Have you heard of the 5-second rule?

(No, I am not talking about the 5-second rule for food dropped on the floor. 🙂

Call it whatever you want – your motivation, drive, or discipline – but this rule can be a total game-changer in that department. I’ve talked about this in the past, and come back to it time after time because it is SO IMPORTANT for your results.

Yes, it’s true: your success can come down to as little as 5 seconds, according to author Mel Robbins, who wrote an entire book about it!

Here’s how the rule works. The moment you get a “spark” to do something that will help you move closer towards your goals – you count 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 … and then you DO IT!

That brief countdown is the amount of time it can take for your brain to kill your best motivations. 

There’s a part of your brain that HATES change – it likes to stay in its little comfort zone (even if you no longer find that zone very comfy).

But if you are able to TAKE ACTION before it can stop you, you WIN! 

As an example: Let’s say you are about to sit on the couch to watch TV, and you have a goal of being more active. You suddenly think, “It’s nice out. I should go for a walk.”

If you say 5-4-3-2-1- and right away put on those sneakers to go for a walk, your brain won’t have time to respond with, “Nah, I’m feeling tired – I think I’ll just veg out here instead.”

Makes sense, right? 

It’s basically the same as Nike’s tagline: Just Do It. It gets you out of your head and spurs you into ACTION.

Which is perfect, because that’s where the change happens!

Try it for yourself. The best part is, over time it builds on itself as you start to see firsthand how well it works.

Up for giving it a try today?

I’ve got a BIG question for you today. Before I ask it, I want you to fire up your imagination. 

One year from now, if you had an AMAZING year and were all-in on your goals, how do YOU want to feel when it comes to your health and wellness?

I’m talking about your WHOLE health, energy, strength, confidence … your quality of life. 

Hold that feeling in your head and really connect with it! 

Are you holding it in your mind right now?  

Can you picture how you look and feel? 

Well, that’s not the question. 🙂

Now … imagine you started working toward that goal exactly ONE YEAR AGO. And also that you followed through on your commitment to yourself to make it happen.

Here’s the big question:

How would you feel right now? What would be different?

The answers are probably both empowering and sobering. I mean, IF ONLY, right?

There’s your fuel to make your goals happen … starting RIGHT NOW! 

You can’t change the past, but you have the choice to create a different future. 

Do you want your NEXT 12 months to look different than the last 12? 

I know I certainly do. 

And before the naysayer voice in your head starts telling you why you can’t …

Know this: we ALL have a list of reasons why we “CAN’T” move forward toward our goals. Here are just a few I’ve heard over the years:

→ I don’t have time
→ I haven’t been able to stick with anything in the past
→ Nothing I’ve tried has actually worked for me 
→ I can’t commit to a routine
→ I don’t have the energy
→ I’ll get exhausted and too sore 
→ I’m worried about getting hurt
→ I’m not motivated enough right now

What if instead, you came up with JUST ONE REASON why you need to make it happen? 

Something that has real meaning and power for you!

Just one!

Do you have one? If not, spend a little time reflecting on your reason. 

Because you DESERVE IT. 

I KNOW you can reach your goals. You just have to believe it yourself. 


Life is too short and precious not to go for it. Do you agree!?
