There will always be someone who can’t see your worth.

Don’t let it be you.

-Mel Robbins, The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage

“Every one of us is one Google search away from a list of instructions, that if you follow any of them, it will change your life. But how do you get out of your head and stop thinking about what you need to do and actually do it?

…If you’re stuck, that’s the problem. The problem is you’re in your head, you’re thinking. That is the universal problem; and it all starts with this knowledge of what to do and then you hesitate and you think about whether or not you feel like doing it.”

-Mel Robbins, The Secret to Self-Motivation (9:54)

Motivation’s garbage. It’s never there when you need it.

“Every human being has a five second window -might even be shorter, for you. You have about a five second window in which you can move from idea to action before your brain kicks into full gear and sabotages any change in behavior.

“‘Cause, remember, your brain is wired to stop you from doing things that are uncomfortable or uncertain or scary. It’s your job to learn how to move from those ideas that could change everything into acting on them.”
