Each month I recommend something that I have read, want to read, or may currently be reading, which may give you some value. The books may be business-related, self-help, home organization, or just entertainment.
This month I want to get back to making book recommendations by starting with one that I absolutely love. The 5 Second Rule, by Mel Robbins, is one of those books that has stuck with me. The 5 Second Rule has become part of my internal vernacular. Once you read it you will see why!
The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage
by Mel Robbins

Throughout your life, you’ve had parents, coaches, teachers, friends and mentors who have pushed you to be better than your excuses and bigger than your fears. What if the secret to having the confidence and courage to enrich your life and work is simply knowing how to push yourself?
