Mel Robbins is the author of The 5 Second Rule, a motivational technique which became a global phenomenon, and it’s of some surprise that someone so successful should have looked into the mirror and suffered the same self-doubt that plagues so many of us. Having shared that with us, she goes on to explain how she came up with the idea of literally giving yourself a High 5 every day, based on the simple premise that you are your own best supporter. By doing this regularly in everything you do, you immediately increase your self-esteem – it’s clever and it works! In her entertaining book, Robbins describes how you can apply this principle to many areas of your everyday life, with exercises and examples to illustrate how to go about it. Her science-based wisdom, use of personal stories and reassuring real-life results really help in learning how to form a habit of believing in yourself and release a confidence you didn’t know you had.
