1.0 Start Off your Day Orderly
Benjamin Franklin once said, “Early to bed, early to rise, keeps a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” In order to stand out or be more productive, you are going to want to be all three of those things. You will want to make sure your health is in order by getting quality and consistent sleep, while also starting off your day with a healthy breakfast.
You equally need to be productive to be wise. By waking up early, you have the chance to start your day the way you should, and enjoy many benefits that include:
1.1 Quiet Time
The world is a very busy and noisy place. It can be hard to really focus when there are all kinds of distractions going on around you. If you have to drive to work, you cannot get a whole lot done at the work place. If you have a family, you are pretty busy once you get home.
If you get up early, though, you will have some quiet time to read, relax and start the day off right.
1.2. A Slower Start
Are you the kind of person that jumps out of bed already running late? If so, your habits need to drastically change. Being in a hurry means that you start your day in a stressful place, and how you start your day will generally follow you throughout the rest of your day.
By getting up early, you allow yourself a slower start to the day. This means you will be more relaxed, and you will be able to take that demeaner with you when you head off to work.
1.3. Higher Productivity
People that get up early are usually some of the most productive people you will ever meet. This is because your brain functions better in the morning, and you are better able to focus on tasks that require you to be more creative and problem solving.
To start off your day right, and to have the most successful day possible, make sure you get up early!
2.0 A better Life is a Mindset.
If you want to make a difference in any field, you need to know deep down that you not only CAN do it, but WILL do it. If you don’t think something is possible, well, guess what? You manifest what you believe in. If you believe you can succeed and you stay positive, you will succeed. If you are negative and think the world is out to get you, you will get nowhere, fast.
Here are a few ways to make sure that you are always thinking positively, and ignoring the voice in your head that nags at you and tells you that you are not good enough.
2.1 Remove Ambiguous Words in Your Vocabulary
One trap that a lot of people fall into is using words that are ambiguous. For instance, someone may ask you whether you can or can’t become successful? You may respond with, “I may be able to.” This removes positive thinking from the get-go. Instead, you should answer with a positive or negative answer. Either you can or can’t become successful.
Not everything in life has to be grey. Some can be black and white, like can you or can’t you. The answer is, you CAN.
Think of Why You CAN, Not Why You CAN’T.
You can accomplish all sorts of great things, but you need to rewire your brain. You need to do away with any negativity that you may have, and replace it with positivity.
You have to look forward to a tomorrow that is amazing or not a horrible one. The decision is ultimately up to you. Make sure that you envision the right future, the future where you are successful and happy for yourself, couple and children and within your community!
