Mel Robbins

Hi, I’m Mel Robbins.

And I believe that — like me – you’re only one decision away from a totally different life. 

My huge, life-changing decision-making moment happened when I was 41. I was unemployed, facing bankruptcy and my marriage was spiraling. My confidence was shot. And my life was a mess.


I struggled just to get out of bed. Every morning, the alarm clock would ring. I knew I should get up and deal but anxiety rushed in and I’d hit the snooze button instead. Here’s the thing. I wanted to change. I just couldn’t make myself do it. The smallest things felt impossible. I read books and bought journals. Nothing stuck. I prayed for motivation. It never came. There was literally always an excuse.

But I knew something had to change, and fast. So one night while feeling sorry for myself a rocket shot across my TV screen during a commercial and gave me a crazy idea: what if when the alarm rang the next morning, instead of thinking about all my problems, I launched myself out of bed like a rocket?

So that’s what I did. I started counting backwards.


The change was instant. 5-4-3-2-1 helped me close the gap between thinking and doing. And just by taking action, my confidence grew.

In five seconds flat, I stopped thinking and started moving forward. I stopped listening to the garbage in my mind and started thinking positive. Over time, I not only gained self-awareness and self-confidence, I discovered the simple secret to changing your life. I call it The 5 Second Rule.

The 5 Second Rule
Ever since I made the life-changing decision to get out of bed that day and take back control, I’ve been able to meet goals that were previously only part of my wildest dreams.
I’ve gotten to teach, coach and motivate millions of people around the world.  I turned The 5 Second Rule into a book that become a bestseller.
I gave a TEDx Talk that’s been viewed more than  20-million times. And I founded and now act as the CEO of 143 Studios, a digital media company that produces content in partnership with Fortune 500 brands.

And now, I’m working with Sony Pictures Television on my very own daytime talk show, which aims to bring practical, no-nonsense advice and life strategies that help real people like you and me push through the everyday challenges we all face in life, work and love. 

You’ll be shocked with what you can do with The 5 Second Rule. I know I was. 

You know what to do. You know why you need to do it. I’m here to show you how. 

Let’s do it together.
