I was never really a morning person. Is anyone..? Ever?
Waaaay back in my corporate days I remember stealing every last minute of sleep before that dreaded time where you simply had to get up and start yet another day.
I hated happy people in the morning. I mean, seriously..? HOW can you feel good so early..!
It’s just wrong..
Granted, in those days I worked for money. My job was just that – a job. There was no “loving what I do”. It was just simply doing-the-right-thing to pay the bills.
Life was beige.
I thought that was normal.
So if you had asked me then “what makes me get up in the morning”? Apart from my alarm clock, it was simply the fact that I needed to be at work by 8am.
Uninspiring. No depth. Just fact.
These days it’s different.
I wake up at around 5am every day. Yup, EVERY day.
On my own WITHOUT an alarm clock.
And I’m glad. And enthusiastic. Because it means I can make some tea and start my day. Yay! (and that’s not a fake yay..)
What’s changed is that I now LOVE what I do. And where I live. So why would I not be excited to start each new day?
So ask yourself the question:
“What makes you get up every day?”
And be HONEST..!
It’s very revealing..
If you’d rather avoid the question (that’s ok) then you simply HAVE to watch this – it’s 20 mins long so perfect for your lunch-break.. (scroll to the bottom of the link to watch the video, it’s really worth it..!)
