WHY TRY … The 5-Second Rule!!
Are you someone who does, or has ever done, the following (or something similar)?
The alarm clock ⏰ goes off. Your brain 🧠 thinks … I’m not ready yet! I need 5 more (or 15 or 30 more) minutes before I have to face another crappy day! What’s the… use anyway … nothing ever changes! So, you groggily reach over and hit the snooze button. And yet another day of hopelessness goes by, with failure being your ever-constant companion!
Been there, done that!!!
Jim Rohn wisely said, “For things to change, YOU must change.” I’ve heard that for years and believe it with my whole heart. BUT how the heck do I change me when I don’t even know where to begin? If I don’t know where to begin or HOW or WHAT to actually change, then why even try? Action paralysis is one of THE most common maladies known to humankind.
Mel Robbins says it so well in this very short but powerful video about how and what she did to start to change herself and her situation.
I used to say “why try” to myself all the time. I’m also one of those people who learns through doing and making LOTS of mistakes. Unfortunately, I’m also one of those people who often has to make the same mistake over and over again in the same way to only get the same failed results before a light bulb finally goes off in my head and I have an AHA moment! When those AHA moments happen, I rarely, if ever, make that same mistake again.
Ray Higdon said something recently that truly got through the brain fog I’ve had for the past 50+ years of my life about knowledge and success. Knowledge in and of itself is useless and a waste of time without LINKING that knowledge to actual ACTION! In this video, Mel demonstrates how ACTION changed her and her situation.
