“Five, four, three, two, one.” According to author Mel Robbins, this is the only pep talk you need. As a decision-making tool, the 5 Second Rule is clarifying. Counting backwards will focus your attention, sweep worry from your mind, and provide a quick boost of confidence for whatever step comes next.
