I’m a little weird, sometimes I can wake up turn off my alarm and not know I turned it off. It's horrible, but now I am in more control. I know when I turn it off and I don't anymore. Some may be like "Oh no not another morning article". I challenge you, how many more does it take for you to realize it's a good idea. It took me countless but I finally got the clue.
I can remember looking back on my middle school, high school and even my early years in college. Despite having to wake up for classes, waking up early was not a joy and actually something I tried not to do. Whenever the opportunity arises I let myself sleep in. Then I increasingly was having to wake up early for school and work, and because I had to I never actually wanted to. I’ve attempted before to make waking up early a routine and I never consistently succeeded. Mostly in part I had no reason to wake up early. I would have an alarm set to wake up early, and usually not always one but many times 3-4-5 different alarms. Overtime I would hit snooze and just go back asleep because I had no reason to get up early. I reasoned with myself that the extra sleep was worth it over what I was going to do, and that I would still have time for the more important tasks.
However the proof is overwhelmingly visible that waking up early is beneficial. Whether your for it or against it, you can’t deny the benefits it brings. There is a reason all of the most successful people in the world will wake up anytime between 3-6am.
Most people try to say they can’t wake up early. They say because they’ve never done it they are unable. Or that they are not morning people, or they say they work better at night then in the morning. They make some kind of validation as to why not to change. It’s in human nature to resist change, its wired so deep that our body has homeostasis to resist it. Except this is not just in the body its mentally as well. That’s why most people are reluctant to change, they wait until they see tons and tons of proof, that others around them are doing it, that it works. Most people wait until other people do or adopt something before they do. I’m sure we’ve all heard someone or ourselves say “Wow you’ve changed”. Whatever reason it may have been for sometimes people lose friends because “they change”. When really all you have done is grown.
Whether you think you should or you shouldn’t isn’t the question. The question I asked myself was “Why am I not waking up earlier ?”, “What is my reason I am sleeping in?”
First A List Of A Few People Who Wake Up Early
I think you get the point now. You can look at the list and see they are all completely different people, with different business, backgrounds, lives. Yet there’s 2 things in common, they are super successful and they wake up early. What does that tell you? That it is probably a good idea. This isn’t some super secret topic, if you’ve paid attention before or used Facebook I’m sure you may have seen something similar once or twice. The question next, just like I asked myself, Why am I not doing it ? There’s an obvious correlation that is almost undeniable, I see it again and again, So why not me? Don’t say you work better at night, because maybe you do but it’s likely you work better and 1hr after waking. This isn’t some theory it’s science, physiological, and psychological. You have more willpower and focus earlier in the day, plain and simple, there is no debating.
How do you do it
I’m not going to ruin things like the book, The Miracle Morning, which is awesome I recommend it to everyone and anyone. Instead I’ll tell you what I do.
Yours doesn't have to look like this you can literally make your morning anything you want it to be fit to your lifestyle.
My question for you, is why not you? What’s been holding you back?
What can you do today to make sure you can do it tomorrow?
What do you want to get done, what do you need to get done?
Stop saying I can’t and begin saying I will
Your mornings can determine your day. That's why Tony Robbins is big on priming his day.
