5 second rule

Hi coaches! I was recently reminded of Mel Robbins’ 5 second rule, and have found it to be very helpful! She says to “ignore” your feelings and “do it anyway”. I am trying to wrap my mind around this.

For example, when Brooke talks about protocol – she says that it doesn’t matter how you feel, if you want a brownie – you eat the salad you planned in advance, period. That, to me, kind of feels similar to the five second rule.

But then in other episodes Brooke says to feel our feelings, and I also believe that this is very important. I guess the point is to feel the feeling but DO the task anyway, whether the uncomfortable feeling is there or not?

Has anyone else read this book and can comment on how it integrates with the work we do here at scholars, particularly with regards to feeling your feelings?
