Many motivational speakers and coaches (aka coach) believe that getting out of bed early is the key to success. Are actually morning birds more likely to achieve professional fulfillment?
#The Morning Bird Club
Robin Sharma is a Canadian author and life coach who rose to fame after publishing his book The 5am Club. A happy morning changes everything. What is the mysterious 5am club? It is simply people who start their day very early. Robin Sharma proves that getting up at 5 a.m. (or even earlier) will help you succeed in life and provide a sense of fulfillment and make it effortless to develop your creativity.
Modifying your mornings
The man has two pieces of advice for everyone:
- Wake up at 5am,
- live by the 20/20/20 rule.
- Waking up early gives us more time to do the necessary things. At 5am, most people are still asleep, so no one will bother us with phone calls and information. In addition, Robin suggests spending the first 20 minutes exercising, the next 20 minutes writing a journal, meditating, or making a chore list. The last 20 minutes should be spent learning something new.
According to the Canadian, mornings structured this way will make us more organized, increase our competence and learn new skills. Additionally, it will benefit our condition and health. An early start to the day is beneficial for busy people. In the morning they have time just for themselves, which they can devote for example to writing e-books, books or developing new projects.
#Success After Six Months
Robin Sharma argues that waking up at 5am and working on your ventures will bear fruit after about 6 months. At that point, you can feel that success is near. Of course, for many people, changing their daily routine is very difficult to implement. The writer claims that it takes 66 days for each of us to modify our routine and get used to getting up at 5 am.
#Members of the 5am club include:
Timothy Cook (CEO of Apple Inc.), who wakes up at 3:45 or 4:30,
Robert Iger (chairman of the board and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company) who starts his day at 4:30 a.m
Are you a morning bird or do you like to sleep longer?
