We all go to bed at night and we all wake up in the morning. Each day you can, seize the day and create your life. Every morning you have the opportunity to rise early excited to begin your day. However, that’s not how morning looks to everyone.
Many of us sleep late, and feel like we are playing catch up all day. It’s pretty common for people to hit the snooze button more than once in the morning. Yet, for some of the most successful people their morning starts early because they are aware that it gives them an advantage in their life.
So while you are a enjoying those last vivid dream minutes someone else is up and already reading, working, exercising, meditating, etc. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO is up at 4:30 am
Let’s look at why waking early gives you better odds at success in your life:
- In the morning you have stronger willpower. Your willpower is a limited resource and by the end of the day it is running low. That means you have a greater chance of dealing with challenges earlier in the day because you will have more willpower, so manage it well.
- The tone for the day is set with your morning rituals. When you get up early you have time to journal, read, exercise, etc. all of which determine how you are going to feel for the rest of the day. Create positive energy in the morning will change how you act and engage throughout the day.
- In the morning you are more focused with fewer distractions. The quiet morning hours let you take care of your top-priorities before everyone elseís priorities find their way into your day. You can use the early morning to set your goals, plan what your day is going to look like and even solve problems. You are much more likely to be highly productive. Perhaps there is some truth to the saying ìThe early bird catches the worm.î
You can see why early risers might enjoy a more successful life. So what are you going to opt for? More beauty rest and less success or more success and less sleep? It’s up to you.
