If you read the 5 second rule it can. This is a very simple but incredibly powerful rule that Mel Robbins has come up with and it turns out that there is actually science behind what she does. By counting down you interrupt your brains normal process of coming up with excuses and you move yourself to action.
If you’ve ever struggled with second guessing yourself, social anxiety, having great ideas and not having the courage to speak up. Then this book is for you. It’s amazing to see all the examples in the book of people who have used the very simple idea to make massive changes in their lives.

The book is broken up into two sections. Thoughts and Actions. Under thoughts he talks about things like overcoming procrastination, weakness, stress and a whole bunch of other topics.
