When the alarm clock of life goes off, do you wake up? Hit the snooze? Eventually grumble out of bed? Or do you jump out of bed with passion and excitement because you are sooo excited to be you, to be living your life? The video below shows you how you can do that…
Most people who struggle with waking up do not do so when they are on a great vacation and a tee time awaits, or they are going skiing on a great sunny powder day! They so want to have that experience, they can’t wait to get out of bed! So why isn’t your day to day like that? One of the measurements that I use for clients is their excitement of getting out of bed… or their reluctance to get out. And when you realize that this pivotal experience, how you wake up and get out of bed to experience the day and your life, lays the foundation… AND… this is a “program,” then you have a number of powerful options that you weren’t aware of yesterday.
“I am not a morning person.” Oh bull! You wake up for the things that you love… you are not a “you” person, excited to be you.
“I just can’t get out of bed.” Oh bull! When you look forward to your day, or what IS coming that morning, you get out of bed.
“I just hit the snooze over and over again.” Ok, this is a little longer explanation:
Take time this weekend, and you need about 20- 30 minutes. WRITE down what your ideal morning routine would look like. For example, “The night before, I have laid out my workout clothes in the closet. When the alarm goes off, I plug my iPod in my ear, which has my favorite wake up song, ‘Eye of the Tiger.’ I take a moment to just be thankful that I am alive, I feel great, I can’t wait for my morning to begin. I jump into my workout clothes, I go downstairs to the treadmill, I run for 30 minutes, and so on….”
Now, get in pajamas, go to bed, set your alarm clock ahead one or two minutes, when it goes off, jump out of bed, put your workout clothes on, put your iPod in, CELEBRATE your New You Truth, that you LOVE to wake up to be you, treadmill for a min or two, really sink the celebration in… and go back to the bedroom, and repeat this TEN times!
Watch what happens on Monday morning when your alarm clock goes off…
