Publisher's Summary

In her global phenomenon The 5 Second Rule, Mel Robbins taught millions of people around the world the five second secret to motivation. Now she's back with another simple, proven tool you can use to take control of your life: The High 5 Habit.

Don't let the title fool you. This isn't a book about high fiving everyone else in your life. You're already doing that. Cheering for your favorite teams. Celebrating your friends. Supporting the people you love as they go after what they want in life.

Imagine if you gave that same love and encouragement to yourself. Or even better, you made it a daily habit.

You'd be unstoppable.

In this book, Mel teaches you how to start high fiving the most important person in your life, the one who is staring back at you in the mirror: YOURSELF.

If you struggle with self-doubt (and who doesn't?)...

If you're tired of that nagging critic in your head (could somebody evict them already?)...

If you're wildly successful but all you focus on is what's going wrong (you're not alone)...

If you're sick of watching everybody else get ahead while you sit on the couch with your dog (don't bring your dog into this)...

...Mel dedicates this book to you.

Using her signature science-backed wisdom, deeply personal stories, and the real-life results that The High 5 Habit is creating in people's lives around the world (and you'll meet a lot of them throughout this book), Mel will teach you how to make believing in yourself a habit so that you operate with the confidence that your goals and dreams demand.

The High 5 Habit is a simple yet profound tool that changes your attitude, your mindset, and your behavior. So be prepared to laugh and learn as you take steps to immediately boost your confidence, happiness, and results.

It's time to give yourself the high fives, celebration, and support you deserve.

This will change your life. Seriously.

LOVE this audiobook. I'm writing this for those who are considering the audiobook or are on the fence. For those who are struggling for answers, for those who know that life could be better if they could just be given the right tools to back themselves and make it happen. Please, stop here, seriously consider picking this audiobook and give yourself these 7 hours. Mel's work is known for giving you a simple but profound habit to "do" versus "something to think about." And it's all backed with scientific research. This is the crucial difference of Mel's work compared to (pretty much) all others. As a gay Black and Asian woman who came out later in life, who lives around the world, has two University degrees, has had success but also struggled with crippling anxiety, I for soooo long sought out and longed for the right literature or practices out there to help me. When I found Mel's work some years ago I was at the point of desperation because I was working my ass off with self-help books and paying professionals that helped to a degree, often quite meaningfully (for that moment), but what I still needed was tools to deal with my sickening anxiety when life got still, quiet... when I was less distracted and when life throws its crap at me (as it does to all of us). At a low point, I was asked by a professional if I had a zest for life. That question upset me because I had it growing up but it was like it was taken away somehow, I felt so far away from that feeling (homophobia in all of its cruelty, shaming, and dehumanization when you're trying to come out will do that to you). It has been almost 4 years now and my life is viscerally different - even when the crap is being thrown. I am on Chapter 4, I've cried at least four times already because, without a shade of a clichè, what Mel is sharing here is so transformative and can change your life. This new High 5 habit, the newly discovered science behind it, along with the community that you can plug into to share your ups and downs with will be the support you need. So even for a long time Mel follower, this will fill your cup. Sending this out to the Internet for those who see this. I see you. You got this!!! And if you commit to the work, I do hope it helps you the way it has helped me in LEAPS AND BOUNDS. I can happily say my zest is back :). I hope the same for you. Much love, Faustina Agolley.

This book will change….you!

Mel Robbins is a genius! this book gives science based facts and stories on how you can rewire your thinking and reframe everything to start living a High5 life.
I loved the personal stories particularly those about how you your mind can lead you to what you want, and how you can high5 yourself towards it.
Buy this book if you crave everyday acknowledgment, want to improve the relationship with yourself and don’t mind hearing some hard truths along the way.

Disappointing

I have read Mels previous books and am following her on social media for many years. This book was disappointing for me. It was poorly structured, lacked focus and was a lot of bla bla bla really. She often says that her work is backed my science and names a couple of university studies but really does not provide references to back up her claims. It is very superficial!
The worst was the emotional sobbing at the end when she told the painintg story. I mean really? Mel has always appeared authentic to me but this drama was just so fake.

Highly motivational

If you are needing some encouragement this could be what you are after! I found Mel easy to listen to and highly motivational. It’s current, it’s up-to-date, it’s backed by research. I am still highly flawed but I finished listening to this tonight and thought about just re-listening all over again. I want to start high fiving tomorrow! It’s that good! I want my kids to listen to it! They are teens/young adults. I want to equip them with skills and knowledge before they make mistakes, before they start doubting themselves, before they start creating habits that hinder rather than inspire. I want to dream again. Thanks Mel for putting dreams on the “to do” list!

No

High Five yourself. I thought there would be more to it but there isn't. If only I could get a refund.
