Practice giving yourself encouragement and validation. - Cheer loud for yourself so you can cheer louder for others. - The foundation you have with yourself is the foundation you have with everyone else. Improve it. - Reflecting on your work makes you more productive. - You are celebrating WITH someone for just being them. 3. Act like the person you want to become and act accordingly. - Action proves your new belief is true. - Turn jealousy into inspiration. 4. Guilt makes you feel uncomfortable, so you cave because you are afraid of the fallout. - Guilt contracts and love expands. - Stop feeling guilty. Start feeling appreciative. - Destructive guilt will compel you to keep apologizing, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry.” - Say “thank you” to the person who helped fulfill your needs. 5. Write down the signs and coincidences that you are on the right path. Keep a log. - Play a game with yourself that the universe is giving you clues that you are making progress on the thing that you really want. - The game is showing up. The game is hearing no and you keep moving forward. - The greatest risk is doing nothing, not failure. 6. Honor what you think about you more than what other people think about you. - You hear your own critic inside other people’s minds. - Lose the weight of everyone else’s opinions about your life. - Your need for approval and to fit in is dominating your life. Put yourself first. - Motivation isn’t there when you need it. 7. Moments of sudden change always draw a line in the sand. There is a “before” and an “after.” - Mantra: “I’m okay. I’m safe. I’m loved.” (With hand on heart). 8. Put Yourself First: A High-five morning puts your needs first. - Wake up with the first alarm. 5-4-3-2-1 get up. - Put hand on heart + mantra. - High five self in mirror. - Make your bed. - Plan the night before and what you need. 9. RAS (part of brain): decides what information gets into the conscious brain and what gets filtered out. - Four things that can always come through: sound of your name, any threat to safety, partner is interested in having sex with you or someone else, and whatever you tell your brain is important to you. - Your brain is designed to help you get what you want. - Your brain will help you filter in real-time. 10. Create the feelings you want in life. Give it to yourself. - Be in congruence with action and the promises you make to yourself.

    At times simple & sweet, at others neurotic and anxiety-provoking. The author is at her best when directing other people (there is a particularly effective example of her speaking to an Uber driver who wants to move to Hollywood and forcing himself to set a deadline of three weeks) and at her worst when talking about own life experience, which I found uncomfortably highly-strung, self-obsessed, and stress-inducing - unfortunately, this made up 90% of the book.

    I've been a fan of Mel Robbins ever since I got the "5 Second Rule" audiobook a few years ago. I've heard all of her books but I haven't followed her podcast. I saw one of her TV Shows, I think it was the first one, I really can't stand TV (in general,) but I love her books. So I pre-ordered this one months ago, and it finally came out and I'm glad I was between books so I can take it on right away. I love the chapters on jealousy and guilt are really well done and chapter 14 was just AWESOME! S I've been a fan of Mel Robbins ever since I got the "5 Second Rule" audiobook a few years ago.

I love the chapters on jealousy and guilt are really well done and chapter 14 was just AWESOME! She couldn't even read it without tearing up! Just totally lovely! Overall the book provides great advice mainly for being kind to yourself. Self care & love cannot be expressed enough, and she nails it and makes it very actionable! She is very entertaining with her f-bombs in the audiobook, a little tamer in the Kindle version :-) I will try high 5'ing myself in the mirror and see how it goes!

    The book would be a lot shorter if it stopped advertising itself(we get it and we've already bought it). I can't say the habit doesn't work but it's suprising a whole book can come out if it. But what can you expect from a book about self congratulating? Some touching stories and wishful thinking through the lense of confirmation bias. 'It worked for me, so it will work for you'. I'd be interested in seeing brain scans to see the structural changes high5 can do for your brain.

Hints of support for MLMs (is your friends make up business doing well are you jealous) and claiming not to be toxic positivity but also asking you to flip negative thoughts or just say I'm not thinking that. Saying that I'm still going to try the high5 habit for myself.

    I love the simplicity of this book. Wake up. Make your bed. Ignore your phone. Go outside. Set an intention. Brush your teeth. Give yourself a high 5 in the mirror. Tell yourself how fabulous and fearless your are. Then go kick some major ass throughout the rest of your day and accomplish more of what you want out of life.

    I started this on Friday, October 1st and finished it on Monday, October 4th. I started the High 5 Habit the same day, on Friday. The next day, seriously, I started smiling at myself in the mirror. On Sunday, I'm looking at myself, giving myself a High 5 and giggling. It's like a heaviness has been lifted from my soul. The concepts are simple, but the impact is profound. I highly recommend you invest in yourself and start the High 5 Habit. It's a gift you won't regret.

    Full of Elephants that we always ignored I enjoyed this book so much, first Mel has the ultimate respect from me and I was and will be all the time a fan. This book addressed a lot of the elephants that we tend to ignore in our daily life and she just put them right in front of us. Iam a podcaster in the Middle East and she inspired me to go deeper and explore more in the direction of putting ourselves first before anyone else.

    I have been a fan of Mel Robbins work for quite a while now. This is a great book. It takes some getting used to high 5ing yourself in the mirror, however it becomes easier over time and is an amazing boost to your self confidence and self belief. We should congratulate and support ourselves like we would do our loved ones and friends. A highly motivating and inspiring book.

    5 High Fives! ✋🏻✋🏻✋🏻✋🏻✋🏻 As always, Mel Robbins empowers and gives readers straight talk backed by studies and science. I love listening to her audiobooks and gifting her hardbacks. The insights and instructions stick with me. This new book might be my favorite. I am feeling so good starting my day with a High 5 in the mirror!

    It is better than previous book 5 second rule. Author does good research in the field of psychology regarding implementing of RAS and Zeigarnik effect etc. to improve behavior. The gist of the entire book is 'love yourself' and doing high-5 with your image in front of mirror is just an act of celebration between you and your intimate self.

    It’s so simple. It’s so easy. But is it really that easy? Is it really that simple? Could it really work? Well I’m going to give it a try and do the challenge. What do I have to lose? I love the morning routine!! Going to put that into practice for sure!!

    I kind of like the idea of cheering yourself with a morning high five—taken from the idea of pumping yourself up in the mirror before a meeting/call? seems quite similar to me—but I could have done without the drawn out anecdotes and woo woo aspects that permeate the second half. In fact, the title itself feels gimmicky from the start. Also, I strongly dislike Mel Robbins’ evident support of MLMs. (I had never heard of her before this book popped up on my library’s new release newsletter.)

    Amazing I bought the Kindle and the Audible versions of this book. Mel Robbins is so motivating to listen to! I enjoyed listening to the Audible version of the book and bought the Kindle edition to highlight and take notes. I highly recommend everything by Mel Robbins!

    What I got from it: 1. The more you focus on something the more you'll see it everywhere. For example, if you think everyone at work is unhappy, you will see unhappiness everywhere. If you instead believe that there is joy and fun in work, you will see the moments of kindness/the smiles/the joy. 2. Daily routines: Every morning wake up and give yourself a high 5 in the mirror.

Every day put your hand on your heart and say "I am safe, I am okay, I am loved." Try and see a heart shape somewhere daily. 3. If you highly doubt yourself, remind yourself that there is no way that all the work you've put in won't pay off eventually. Have faith. 4. When a negative thought comes into your mind instead say "I'm not thinking about that" 5. When we are young (likely in middle school) we start changing who we are in order to fit in with the crowd around us. We abandon who we really are and start competing with those around us. We continue this pattern into adulthood, and do our best to keep up with the "Joneses". For example, when we are in our 20s we try and keep up with jobs and relationships, then in our 30s we feel the need to have kids and houses, then in 40s have successful careers and bigger houses/cars, etc. It becomes a never-ending cycle of trying to one-up the people around us.

    The High 5 Habit is packed but not overwhelmed with personal development goodness. I personally pursued the habit of the daily high 5 and I have seen positive results.

I personally pursued the habit of the daily high 5 and I have seen positive results. I love the way Mel Robbins intertwines research, personal stories and explanations which all resonated with me and made it clear she has put some solid thought and research into the lessons she is sharing. I think her book has come at a time where we are all so self-critical and obsessed, but in a detrimental way which has just become the new norm. We need reminders to love ourselves, and the self-validation that we're doing our best and that's okay. This book reminds you of that. It's a book about confidence, courage and taking action. Looking at hard feelings like jealousy and what jealousy can actually do for you if explored constructively. How to learn to disappoint people and be okay with that - we will always disappoint someone - but hey, guess what!? People can be upset and disappointed with you and still love you. I love this quote shared by Mel "Do the best you can until you know better, and when you know better do better". Since reading this, I think about the high five habit daily, and hope to continue to integrate it into my day - because no one ever affiliated negative thoughts with a high five!

But instead of seeing the obstacles this book will help you see the opportunities. I listened to the audio version of this book, which Mel narrates. Mel’s charisma, wisdom, and palpable desire to inspire and motivate each and every one of us to take action on the life of our dreams is evident in the words on these pages (or in my case in Mel’s voice in my ears). In one of the final chapters of the audio version Mel tears up sharing a story about the attainment of one of her long-held dreams. I teared up with her--there is so much hope in seeing long-held dreams realized. I can’t recommend this book enough, and especially the audio version. I'm adding this one to my personal All-Time Favorite Books list.

Mel Robbins again is taking the whole world by storm creating this scientific piece of art.📝 She Talks, explains and show “Self-Love” like no one did before. The Importance of it, How to celebrate yourself”Daily”, and what to expect from Life when you actually celebrate yourself🎉 How a Simple habit like highfiving yourself in the mirror can actually be all what you need as a kick in to this new version of your-self that you have always longed for.

She changed the whole narrative about self-celebration, and how perceiving it as a birth right will change your game forever. 💃 She then changes the whole crappy rule of celebrating yourself only when you achieve; into the exact opposite which you have to celebrate yourself in order for you to get there. And then “Chapter 14” the emotional roller coaster, that will show you how giving yourself permission to dream big, will definitely take your life to places you have never thought possible Its a 10/10 Experience and on my top list of recommendations

    Holy cow. I loved The 5 Second Rule. But this one is my new fav. Mel has a way of telling you exactly what you need to hear. How to speak to your soul, your self doubt, struggles, anxiety… all of it. And put so eloquently, and often with a swear word or several, brutal honesty, and laughter- the get your head out of your ass stuff we need to hear. Her personal struggles and battles serve as a “hell, if I can do it you can too” manuscript for us listening to her encouraging words. The painting story Holy cow. I loved The 5 Second Rule.

    I like the high 5 concept, and the first 3/4 of the book would likely be a great read for someone new to self help concepts like negativity bias or boundary setting. Closer to the end of the book she relies on extremely drawn out anecdotes to illustrate concepts that move into the mystical, such as making a decision to move because of something a psychic says (despite reiterating throughout the book that she’s all about science and research), and doesn’t address how choice-supportive bias impacts I like the high 5 concept, and the first 3/4 of the book would likely be a great read for someone new to self help concepts like negativity bias or boundary setting.

A few comments are supportive of MLMs (which are predatory) and that rubbed me the wrong way too.
