787. How One Simple Habit Can Give You Back Control of Your Life with Mel Robbins

I have been obsessed with Mel Robbins for longer than I can remember, so it’s a dream come true to be able to sit down with her and talk to her about The High 5 Habit. We’re all quick to give our friends high fives, cheer them on, be their biggest supporters… but what about the person in the mirror? When do we ever give ourselves a high five? And what would happen if we made a habit of it? That’s what Mel’s going to share, and let me tell you, it will absolutely change the game for you.

My friend Mel Robbins, one of the most requested motivational speakers in the world, is hosting a five-day online challenge on GrowthDay called The High 5 Challenge. She’s offering it to my community for free here:
