Five Minutes Hero / Lifestyle product

Five Minutes Hero
Five Minutes Hero

Even after having given your best in preparing for that big moment (a speech, an exam, etc), inches away from glory, you break down into a nervous wreck. Your mind wishes desperately to gain control and composure but nothing happens. 5 Minute Hero is designed to give you the mental edge to conquer those inches. Through a projection aid designed as a monocle, you can see yourself crossing through that critical moment and succeeding. Linked to any media player, boost your confidence with pre-loaded movie clips or songs to motivate you. Believe that what you have visualized will come to pass. Congratulations. You’ve already won half the battle.
