The 5 Second Rule to Change Your Life

It's not everyday that a bonafide fan of The School of Greatness comes on the show as a guest.

But last week, I had the chance to meet one of the coolest women ever, and it turns out she’s a fan.

Mel Robbins is the most booked female speaker on the planet with a 7 figure speaking business.

Oh yeah, she’s also a bestselling author, a former criminal defense attorney, a CNN commentator, happily married for 20 years, and a mom of 3 kids.

But what I really fell in love with about Mel was her passion, energy, straight-talking truth, and beautiful vulnerability.

“Greatness is hearing your truth and speaking it, no matter how your voice shakes.”  

I can’t wait to be awesome friends going forward.

In addition to making a great new friend, however, I am really pumped to bring you Mel’s incredible wisdom about how she overcame procrastination, fear, and low self-confidence after a devastating career blow and financial hardship.

I have a feeling this is going to become one of the most popular episodes ever on the show.

Get ready to laugh, cry, and learn how to master your thoughts to create extraordinary results in Episode 452.
