[TOOL] EP#413 – Self-Belief and The High-Five Habit with Mel Robbins

Oct 3, 2021

Ok, so let’s all collectively try to not freak out. 
Mel Robbins is on the show this week. 
Like, THE Mel Robbins. 
The Mel Robbins who’s sold millions of copies of her highly sought-after books, spoken to some of the biggest audiences all over the world, and who has built one of the biggest personal empowerment movements to date. Yeah… no big deal.

So, let me ask you a question. When you look in the mirror, how do you usually feel? What are the feelings that come up? (Ugh, Amy, really!?) How do you speak to yourself? Do you immediately pick yourself apart, assessing all the things you loathe about yourself? Or maybe you avoid the mirror altogether because you never have a good feeling engaging with yourself. Well, what if… what if you actually got excited to connect with that person in the mirror? What if you actually got a thrill and burst of dopamine by engaging with your image in a totally different way?

What the hell are you even talking about, you may be wondering. 
In this super fun and candid chat, Mel shares with me a new tool she used everyday in the mirror for over a year that completely changed her life. And it can change yours too. What is it you may ask? A simple high-five. To yourself. In the mirror. Every day. Why does it work? In a word: Science. But in words that last an hour, you’ll have to listen in to hear Mel speak about the science behind our positive association with the action of a high-five and what it can do to change the neural pathways in the brain. So, you can, like, make shit happen n’ stuff. 

If you want to get out of your own way, finally be your own biggest fan, and finally start to make your god-damned dreams a reality, you won’t want to miss this gem of an episode. Oh, and, you should also probably buy her book. 

This pod explores:

  • How Mel’s (deceased) Father-in-Law sent her an uncomfortable message from beyond the grave
  • Why your jealousy may not actually be a bad thing and what it’s trying to tell you and why Mel is totally jealous of me (I shit you not!)
  • Why many mantras are bullshit and how to craft beliefs you can actually buy into (Yes, please!)
  • Understanding the science behind high-fiving yourself in the mirror and why it just might change your life
