Successful Mornings – My Key to Success & Why You Should Start Early Too

As an early bird myself, it’s quite difficult for me to understand the logic behind a lie in. For me, getting up is easy. And even if it wasn’t, the idea of the world going on without me is enough to get me up, out and about.

But I do understand that there are some of you out there (and that includes Joe!), who have a really good relationship with your bed. But the thing is, your missing a key to success!

Well, It’s Time to Stand Your Ground.

Here are some motives for the self-developer to get you out of bed and starting the day with something productive:

1) If you start the day productively, your day will be productive. Because a proactive step when you first wake up, however small, is a step towards getting your mind working. The earlier you do this, the more time is saved getting into the mindset for production. And time, as we know, is a valuable and precious tool for the self-developer.

2) It feels great to have accomplished something before everyone wakes up (or, if your a night owl; whilst everyone sleeps) Feeling different, helps you think different. And different is good!

3) You won’t remember or be remembered for time spent sleeping. Any sleep above the level you need to function at your best is a waste of time which is in my eyes, the biggest crime any inspired person can commit.

4) Just one hour wasted a day, in the morning, daydreaming on the train or perfecting your hair is 365 hours in a year. I’ll let that sink in.

Some mornings you have more time than others. I’m human. I have responsibilities. I understand. But there are always going to be excuses; “I have no time” is not an excuse.

Obama is the President of the United States, and he wrote a book. Scott Turow, was an American attorney and he also wrote a book, Presumed Innocent. Both of these men we’re busy. They had demanding jobs and a demanding family life, but they believed in what they had to say and to create; so they made time to do it. Turow wrote the book in the only spare time she had on the train every morning at 7.39 am.

Perhaps these are exaggerative examples. You may not want to write a book, or even begin the day with such a large step. But perhaps we should take a leaf out of their book, that time wasted is opportunity wasted. Who ever you are and wherever you come from if your dream is a true dream, and if your serious about fulfilling it, then that pull and the urge should be stronger than any excuse. And if it’s not perhaps you should look at the deeper reasoning behind your lack of productivity.

There are many ways you could try starting the day with a positive and proactive step such as jogging or reading. Why not even try an exercise from one life success? It doesn’t have to be a big step towards improving yourself as all little steps add up. Just make sure that you make the most of the time you have and remember that each step is making your mind ready to tackle and absorb the day.

The early bird catches the worm. And time is your currency. The sooner you learn this, the sooner you’ll be chirping your way to success.
