WAKE UP EARLY, START YOUR DAY RIGHT!
How you start your day it’s how you start the rest of your life! And day by day, when you’re consistent, doing the same thing over and over to lead to growth, it will change everything about your life.
If you’re checking email first thing in the morning, it’s not that the email is the problem, is that you haven’t prioritized your time, and your priorities and your goals and your activities that you know are the important things that need to get done. And once they’re done, then go check your email, check your Facebook, do whatever you want.
Wake up each day and tell yourself you’re strong. And slowly start to eliminate those small, small little pebbles that are keeping you from climbing the big mountain. Quit stumbling! And when you stumble, get right back up and take more steps forward. When people say “I’m not a morning person!” that’s the most ridiculous statement a person can make.
If you’re not a morning person, are you not shooting for tomorrow? And our goal is for tomorrow to come. And when you wake up in the morning, before you start thinking about the things that you’ve gotta do that you don’t wanna do, before you start remembering the injustices of yesterday or 10 years ago, before you remember that you’re going to that place today to work where you really don’t want to be, before your kids get up, before any of those things happen that challenge your sense of well-being, if you can get hold of that sense of well-being and just sustain it for a little bit with really general thought, because if it gets specific, it usually doesn’t work as well, get into an attitude of appreciation and milk it for just a little bit.
Look, I hate to say it, but winning and succeeding are competitive! Life is competitive! Everybody doesn’t get a trophy! That’s not how it works! And it’s your ability to get up and get moving.
So you gotta get up early! Show up early! Get there! Get after it! Attack the day! Make things happen! Most people wait for things to happen. Winners make things happen!
