Featured Grand Junction Realtor of the Week: Janell Gear

March 22, 2018
Congratulations to Janell Gear, Broker/Owner of Gear & Associates Realty, our featured Grand Junction realtor of the week!  Janell would like to introduce us to Mel Robbins, speaker, CNN commentator, and author of the book “The 5 Second Rule.” Last month at a real estate conference, Janell attended a presentation led by Mel and found yet another powerful tool to perhaps help her clients, and herself as a Realtor.  Mel created the 5 second rule when she was in a tough time of her life.  Her marriage was struggling,  she had lost her job and she was about to lose everything.  She continued to hit the snooze button on her own life and couldn't move forward.  One day she heard a NASA clip and realized, “It’s so simple –just count down from 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and then physically MOVE to do the thing that you are resisting. Whether it's as simple as getting out of bed or as stressful as making a Quick read more or view full article dreaded phone call.”

Here’s how it works: The moment you feel yourself hesitate (when you know you should do something) start counting backward 5-4-3-2-1, then GO. The Rule is a proven form of metacognition. When you use it, you shift mental gears, interrupt your habit of overthinking and awaken your pre-frontal cortex – making change easy. The rule acts as a “starting ritual” that breaks bad habits and triggers positive new behavior change.  "Feel free to visit Mel Robbins’ website to find out more about the 5 second rule and the science behind it," says Janell. "This could change your life!” Read Less
