The 5 Second Rule

I recently attended Arbonne’s Global Training Conference and our outside speaker was Mel Robbins. Mel Spoke about her 5 second rule that changed her life. I’ve heard and read almost every motivational speaker and my end thought is usually, ”That’s just a bunch of fluffy words and no concrete tools”. As she spoke she shared about how her life had…
