This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Throughout your life, you've had parents, coaches, teachers, friends and mentors who have pushed you to be better than your excuses and bigger than your fears. What if the secret to having the confidence and courage to enrich your life and work is simply knowing how to push yourself?

Using the science of habits, riveting stories and surprising facts from some of the most famous moments in history, art and business, Mel Robbins will explain the power of a “push moment.” Then, she’ll give you one simple tool you can use to become your greatest self.

It takes just five seconds to use this tool, and every time you do, you’ll be in great company. More than 8 million people have watched Mel’s TEDx Talk, and executives inside of the world’s largest brands are using the tool to increase productivity, collaboration, and engagement.

In The 5 Second Rule, you’ll discover it takes just five seconds to:

Become confident
Break the habit of procrastination and self-doubt
Beat fear and uncertainty
Stop worrying and feel happier
Share your ideas with courage

The 5 Second Rule is a simple, one-size-fits-all solution for the one problem we all face —we hold ourselves back.

The secret isn’t knowing what to do—it’s knowing how to make yourself do it.

Mind Blowing

This is book reminded me of how much our mind controls our future. Its the choices we make daily that determines our greatness. Highly recommended, must read.


I never write reviews, but wouldn’t ya know? I used the #5SecondRule and the “never let an important word go unspoken” rule to decide to write a review, ha! All jokes aside, this has hands down been one of the best books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. I’ve struggled with so much self-doubt, overthinking, analysis paralysis, and self defeating thoughts but this book and Mel’s insights have really put a lot into perspective. I now understand what true confidence is, the courage to act despite your fears. Small acts of everyday courage builds the confidence I know deep down I have. Words cannot describe the benefit this has been to my life and I have great hope and anticipation for what the future holds! Read this book!!! You have less than 5 seconds to make a decision, make the right one. Thank you Mel for this monumental work, it’s a game changer!
