I am thrilled to share this very special episode which is a Masterclass replay that I hosted with the one and only, Mel Robbins.

If you’ve been following this podcast, you know that we had a conversation a while back and it’s one of the most listened to episodes on the show. Mel is about to launch her book The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work and Confidence with Everyday Courage on Tuesday, February 28. I am honored to get to share her wisdom and her magic with you here on the podcast and I want to wholeheartedly encourage you to head on over to Amazon to grab her book right now!

Mel Robbins is one of the most sought-after motivational speakers in the world. She’s graced the stages of the largest well-known brands in the country and TEDx talk has had over 10 million views. She’s already a best-selling author and is one of the most popular CNN commentators on TV. She has been a guest expert on Dr Oz, Oprah, and Dr Phil and more. And one of my most favorite things about Mel is her devotion to her family. Mel’s been married to her husband, Chris, for 20 years and she’s a mom to 3 amazing kids and an active member of her community.

In this Soul-Fueled CEO Masterclass, we cover topics like anxiety, self-worth, taking the leap in business, and so many other things. We dissect the power of The 5-Second Rule, and how you can apply it to your own life to kickstart massive transformation with small, powerful changes.

  • Why self-doubt isn’t who you are and how to break that pattern of behavior

  • How Mel cured herself of anxiety with the 5 Second Rule

  • What a ‘mental smoking break’ is and how we take them all day long to procrastinate and deal with stress

  • How to re-train yourself to deal with the things that trigger your anxiety

  • The 3 buckets that determine your success in life and business and how to work around your weaknesses to make success easier to achieve.

  • Why it’s gracious to accept praise and how to acknowledge the people who compliment you

  • How to go to war with imposter syndrome and interrupt the pattern


  • Being unemployed at 41 years old, facing leans on her house, and a huge financial crisis

  • Getting to a point where her dreams didn’t seem possible and being overwhelmed with self-doubt

  • Beating her habit of hitting the snooze button and figuring out how to change any pattern of behavior with a simple technique


  • How do I use the 5-Second Rule to love myself and take care of me?

  • Was there ever a point after the 5-Second Rule that you again struggled and got overwhelmed? What was the course of action you took to get out of it?

  • Can you use the 5-Second Rule to hear the praise and positive affirmations people are trying to say to you?

  • Are there any moments when the 5-Second Rule hasn’t worked for you and do you give yourself consequences when you don’t do what you should do?


“Behind any success story, there’s at least 10 years of suffering.”

“You can always control what you say, what you think, and what you do.”

“You don’t need to know how it’s going to turn out. You need to learn to trust your inner-wisdom.”

“Your dreams come down to your decisions. Your life, the happiness you have come down to your decisions.”

“You are one decision away from a totally different life.”

“If you aren’t valuing yourself, it’s not because you aren’t worth something. Your worth is your worth.”
