As entrepreneurs, our days often fill up fast before we get a chance to include elements of self care, socializing, or personal health in our schedule. If you wait until the afternoon or evening to do something meaningful for yourself such as exercising or reading, you’ll most likely push it to the next day or just wait to see what happens. So what is the #1 answer to maintaining high results as a successful business professional? Waking up early.
Setting your morning alarm a few hours early won’t be the easiest thing to get done, and were all likely to need some extra time and motivation to get it done, but once that finally turns into a part of your morning routine, you’re sure to start noticing great positive benefits such as increased energy levels and mental clarity in the morning.
Waking up early can be a perfect time to read a book or catch up on emails, get out on a morning run or exercise, or maybe even have some quiet time, but the best part is…it’s all up to you. Common benefits of waking up early on a consistent basis have shown to include more energy, reduced stress, improved concentration, and better eating habits.
I’m sure we can all agree that waking up early is hard amidst our busy lives, but as high achievers we also acknowledge that overcoming hard things can lead us to excellence in the long run. Take a look at the schedules of the top performing CEO’s around the world and you’re sure to find a common thread in their schedules…waking up early.
Imagine all your competitors out there in the world…now imagine you have 3, 4, or even 5 hours of extra time ahead of them giving you an advantage to stay focused on aiming higher towards continued success. It will be a difficult habit to form, and might be best to take it slow in the beginning, but try this out for the next month and I’m sure you’ll find plenty of new benefits in your personal and professional life.
