Step 12 of my 21 Steps to Success Guaranteed to Change Your Life Forever involves working when the rest of the world is sleeping. Wake up early!
Don’t use time as an excuse. This is something that really separates the successful from the unsuccessful. While the rest of the world is sleeping, the successful people are awake, taking care of the things they need to take care of to achieve and maintain success and to take care of many of the steps in my 21 Steps.
Why wake up early?
The hours between 5am -8am are the hours when you are most energized and when there are the least number of distractions.
Waking up just 1 hour earlier every day, gives you 15 whole days of extra productive time in a year!
Morning is the best time to exercise and set yourself up for an energy filled, focused and productive day.
Morning is when your competition is up – the movers and the shakers. Give them a run for their money!
Early risers are more organized. They use this time to plan, read, pray, mediate.
Breakfast is more feasible when you wake up early and we all know how important a good breakfast is .
Take Small Steps
It may take time but you can take small steps, 15 minutes a day earlier until you are up an hour earlier a day.
When you go to bed in the evening, visualize yourself getting up at the hour you intend to. It is amazing how this works. I wrote an interesting post on this here.
I challenge you… wake up early. Make it a habit. Try it for a month. Time is precious
