Wow, definite 5 star, but when I started the audio I almost turned it off because of my impatience

When I started the audio I thought, get to the point, why is Mel telling us what she is going to say and what I will learn...just get to it. I'm not in the mood for a college syllabus outline.
I skipped the first 5 chapters in hopes that the book would catch my interest. HOLY CRAP, it's not just a book, but a message from the universe to empower us with a simple life changing tool. The one we've all been looking for to unleash the warrior inside and blow the road block to productivity off the map!
When the Muse landed on Mel thank God she used the 5,4,3,2,1 to accept the challenge to deliver it to the world.
I listened to the whole audio, not just once, but numerous times feasting on the mana from the heavens.
Thank you Mel for being a willing vessel with forward momentum despite doubt. I'm already reaping the benefits.
Just signed up for you unbelievable FREE offer for the 31 video sessions too!

I just did the 54321 seconds rule, I'm writing a review...this alone is frightening for me. I think it's because deep down I always want to write, what I think and feel, but I never bother because I thought about it to much . It's simple and a small start will do, I just did. Thanks to Mel Robbins, I have re-connected within my self to force myself the "GO" push using her 54321. I recommend it to anyone, who desperately wants a change and a chance to find them self again. I totally love her tone of voice and stories she use to demonstrate her point across. The message is so clear, that I'm so glad I was listening. I hope you find my review useful, but most of all, that you find yourself doing the 54321, now Go!
