Successful people generally have one habit in common – they all wake up early. Why? Why do successful people wake up at 5 am? Can’t they stay in the bed until 9 am? They can, but they won’t because they want to achieve a lot.
If you are a ‘morning’ person, you will achieve a lot more than your peers who stay in the bed until midday. You can’t be successful just because you get up at 5 o’clock. You need to leverage this habit. Here are a few ways to become super productive in the morning.
Success and fitness go hand in hand. Physical fitness almost always translates into success at the workplace. Businessmen lead hectic lives that leave little time
for workout. If you wake up at 5 am, you can easily add an hour of workout to your routine. And after sweating it out in the gym, you can work for an hour or two without any interruptions. During that time of the day, you are unlikely to receive any phone calls. As a result, you will be able to work uninterruptedly. Actually, these two hours will be more productive than the rest of the day.
If you are a morning person, consider yourself blessed because you don’t have to work too hard to pull yourself out of bed early in the morning. If you have trouble rising in the morning, don’t keep the alarm clock or your phone close to the bed. This will defeat the purpose. If the phone is at an arm’s reach, you are unlikely to get up, so keep it a little way.
If you manage to accomplish a lot in the first few hours of the day, you will be able to start the regular working day stress free.
THE WINNER’S MINDSET
Winners have control over their inner voice. If you can’t beat the inner voice, forget about beating the big guys. Do you always manage to get up without any hesitation when the alarm clock goes off in the morning? Even if you are a morning person, this can be difficult on certain days. So, don’t listen to your inner voice. It will probably want you to stay in the bed for another five minutes. The winner is the one who controls this innervoice. They can channel their energy in the right direction. If you are able to get up early in the morning, it is a sign that you are a winner.
We waste a lot of time sleeping. If you wake up just one hour earlier, you will be able to gain 365 hours in a year. Can you imagine? That equals 15 days. Sleeping an hour less won’t affect your health or wellbeing in any way, but it will increase your productivity substantially. So, if you want to achieve too much in your life, rise with the lark.
