What The Book Talks About
The 5 Second Rule is a simple tool that undercuts most of the psychological weapons your brain employs to keep you from taking action, which will allow you to procrastinate less, live happier and reach your goals.
Whatever you want that you don’t have, it’ll always require doing new, scary and uncertain things,which makes waiting even a day longer nothing but a cop-out and a waste of time.
That’s why the 5 Second Rule can be your best friend. Even if the first action you take is tiny, like a Google search or setting a reminder in your phone, it’s an action nonetheless and that’s the only thing that matters.
Some lessons from the book:
You can’t control how you feel. But you can always choose how you act.Hesitation is the kiss of death. You might hesitate for a just nanosecond, but that’s all it takes. That one small hesitation triggers a mental system that’s designed to stop you. And it happens in less than—you guessed it—five seconds.
You Are One Decision Away from a Completely Different Life. Start before you’re ready.Don’t prepare, begin.
There’s one thing that is guaranteed to increase your feelings of control over your life: a bias toward action.
The 5 Second Rule The moment you have an instinct to act on a goal you must 5-4-3-2-1 and physically move or your brain will stop you.
Your feelings don’t matter. The only thing that matters is what you DO. Passion is not a thing, it’s a state of mind.
I was the problem and in five seconds, I could push myself and become the solution. There will always be someone who can’t see your worth.Don’t let it be you.
When it comes to change, goals, and dreams, you have to bet on yourself. That life is gritty and hard and then suddenly it is brilliant and amazing.
I have a hard time finding the balance between not beating myself up when it doesn’t happen as fast as I’d like it to, and not wasting time while I wait for it to happen.
Every phase of your life and career will require a different you. Using the Rule, you’ll become the person you’re meant to become in this next phase of your life.
We are all so afraid of uncertainty that we want a guarantee before we even try. We want evidence that if we take a risk we will “get the girl” Its a numbers game.
To play any game, you have to start. To win, you need to keep going. If you want to make your dreams come true, get ready for the long game.
Life is not a one and done sort of deal. You’ve got to work for what you want.
Picasso created nearly 100 masterpieces in his lifetime.
But what most people don’t know is that he created a total of more then 50,000 works of art. .. Thats two pieces of art a day. Success is a numbers game. You are not going to win if you keep telling yourself to wait. The more often that you choose courage, the more likely you’ll succeed.
This book will cost you this much according to amazon.

The book is filled with solid, actionable information that I am putting into action in my own life with awesome success.
There have been people that think this book is very disappointing due to the sole reason that the 5-second rule can easily be explained in a well-written blog post.
