Today’s post was inspired by my lack of motivation when it comes to studying. I didn’t feel like studying so, instead I decided to go onto Pinterest to pin some motivational quotes in the hopes that I’d be inspired and once again motivated to open my books. Luckily, I actually remembered Mel Robins “5 Second Rule”. So, I thought man I should study, then counted down 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and then, I closed Pinterest and opened my books. And before I new it I really getting into my studies.
After I start the studying, I always wonder why my mind seems to hate the thought of ‘study’ because in reality (once I open up my books and start reading) I love learning new & interesting information. If you want to find out more, Mel’s book explains why our minds make beginning any task extremely difficult.
The rule is simply great, because it can allows you to bypass your tricky overthinking mind, and allows you to ‘just do it’. So, if you ever feel stuck in a rut & don’t feel like doing anything, perhaps try the Mel Robins “5 Second Rule”. It worked for me.
Hope you enjoy my super simple Monday post. Amber
