How bad do you want it?
It is never easy to wake up. It seems like everyday we are faced with that alarm clock ruining our happy moment in bed where the warmth rules and the dreams are alive and vivid.
Playing basketball my whole life made me wake up early. I was only 13 when I had my first taste of waking up every morning at 4:45am to make practice by 5:30am. It didn’t stop there. All the way into college there were the morning pre season workouts that nobody enjoyed getting out bed for. The problem that I always had was being able to embrace the moment of waking up. I always hated that moment the clock rang. To this day I can not stand the sound of alarm clocks. Anytime I hear an alarm a sense of pain rips through my body as if I am reliving the moment of waking up all over again.
Eric Thomas, a motivation speaker from Detroit MI, said once in his speech, “When you want it as bad as you can breathe… then you will be successful” (Click hear for the full speach). If we want it bad enough, and can shift our concept of waking up, we will not need the alarm to get up out of bed. To run the walk, it is essential to wrap our heads around this concept.
Have you ever noticed that there are days when you can wake up with no problem? Say for example you have a fun day planned with friends you haven’t seen, or you are going to take a fun vacation. These moments are easier to wake up for than Monday morning for work.
It is not what we do but how we do it, and it is not what happens but how we perceive it. Our next topic is going to be on Perception, which is one of the P’s to success. In order to Run for a long period of time you have to first learn how to.
Until we see each other again,
