Spring Issue InHouse Newsletter

From STUCK to UNSTUCK! 
I am a big history buff.  Most adults of reasonable success are too, they learn from it and try to avoid repeating mistakes they have made and that others have made.  

One of my favorite stories from history is Nehemiah and his life.  This guy was DRIVEN to solve problems.   There is much written on this man and much can be learned especially in the way of getting unstuck. 
You know what I mean by STUCK, right?  Maybe your routine has become unproductive for your health or finances or                  relationships.  In my work, I coach my team from a position of ‘your routine = your results’.  Want a different result?

The 5 Second Rule

I read Mel Robbin's Book, The 5 Second Rule this past week and loved it!

She is a very inspirational woman and I found her very relatable. I do catch myself hesitating and then doubting whether or not I should express my viewpoints. And of course, the endless chatter in my brain could use some focus. I agree when she says it catches on quickly and I can hear her voice in my mind saying 5-4-3-2-1 Blast-Off (like a rocket)! 




The book delved into how in reality, it is time to look in the Mirror and realize that it really only takes 5 seconds to change your life.

In her book she discusses how she discovered the 5 second rule and how by using it awakens your prefrontal cortex. She also dives into how one can use it to improve health, increase productivity, end procrastination, stop worrying, build confidence and more!

All by counting backwards 5-4-3-2-1 and taking Action! 

And since she is a lawyer, I trust she really did look into the scientific studie ...
