Hi. Cellophane here.
I’ve been reading Mel Robbins’s book The Five Second Rule and it’s truly helped me take the first steps to retrain my brain. The way she describes how she was inspired to wake up every morning after seeing a rocket launch makes a lot of sense. A lot of the things we do become habits and it doesn’t matter whether they’re good or bad, they’re habits that are hard to break once they’ve become a part of our daily life.
By counting 5-4-3-2-1, you’re not letting your mind think and changing the course of your decisions and eventually your life. Over the years, I’ve let myself become a person who’s guarded and afraid of the world. I’m trying to take a chance on every opportunity that may seem impossible at first, but that may benefit me in the long run. I’m not going to think about how I feel about doing something, I’m just going to do it. It’s going to be hard, but Mel Robbins’s book is truly inspiring. It’s not a self-help book with the answers to every question known to man. It’s a book you should read if you’re tired of screwing yourself over with excuses and mental blocks that stop you from living your life.
I plan to be more positive even though the world looks grim. I will close my eyes, countdown 5-4-3-2-1 and move towards a better direction for myself and for my family.
I hope you do the same and reach your potential in whatever endeavor you find yourself in right now.
Thank you for reading!
