So I just learned this amazing way to
trick your brain and overcome fear in just five seconds.
And I had to share with you guys. Now a lot of you guys may not know
But I’m a naturally shy person.
对 没错 是我
I know right me, yep,
been that way ever since I was a kid.
I get anxiety,
I’m nervous to go and introduce myself to people.
特别是 你知道 有时和美女交谈
Especially, you know, sometimes to talk to beautiful women, yeah…
I’m very shy I was scared to raise my hand in class,
Basically just fearful of the things that I knew,
that I should do.
Ever since childhood and it still affects me to this day.
So I wish I would have learned this trick back then.
Because, I would have been more courageous, more confident,
I would have done more things, try more things,
Save more things that were on my heart.
但是 废话不多说 你要做的是这些
But here’s what you do, enough talking!
when you get that feeling that you want to do something like:
talk to someone you’re interested in, raise your hand,
ask a question or, or
ask for a raise,
the longer you wait after you get that initial feeling,
the more likely it is that you won’t do that thing
that you really want to do.
Because your mind starts to overthink, make excuses after excuses.
Oh, what if I look stupid?
What if I get rejected?
But here’s the hack, here’s the trick
Are you ready for it?
它十分快速 简单 并且见效快
It’s real quick, real easy and it works!
Once you know what you want to do,
倒数5个数字 5 4 3 2 1
count down from 5: 5 4 3 2 1!
And then go and do that thing that you wanna do,
像火箭船一样 倒数几秒 然后发射
Like a rocket ship, countdown, and then blast off!
Sounds like the silliest thing ever, but it works.
It works based on the science of metacognition
And study after study has shown its effectiveness, see it quiets
the negativity bias that we have in us, the
讨人厌的想法 各种废话 还有担忧
stinking thinking, the the blah blah, the worry.
See worry is a misuse of the Imagination,
it does nothing but drain us of our will power.
But when you focus on the countdown,
you interrupt the worry, the-the doubts
And then you can go and do what it is you want to do.
You’re just tricking your mind and see this is
such a great tool to help you take control
of your life and start living more authentically.
Use this for things like waking up in the morning,
eating healthier, going to the gym,
Whatever positive change that you want to make in
your life, this will give you the courage
to finally become the truest version of yourself.
How much longer are you gonna say,
“One day, I’m gonna…”
Just count down and do it.
Now, I didn’t invent this,
this come from the amazing Mel Robbins.
she has a great book called the five-second rule.
I just finished it on audible.
So check it out, check it out, try it guys,
Let me know what you… what happens, what you think,
And who knows, maybe you can change your life in just five seconds…
