If you want to see the sunrise, you’ve got to get out of bed early, right?
I know it’s hard. Your bed is so warm, and so very comfortable, especially on those chilly winter mornings. The temptation to lie in that little bit longer, doing nothing, and just enjoying your comfortable space is so, so strong.
But when you lie in your comfortable space for too long, you’re missing the most amazing opportunities to experience life as it was meant to be lived. Spectacular moments like a sunrise over the ocean, or the stillness of an early morning are what you and I take for granted all the time.
It’s exactly the same with opportunities. They always present themselves, but its up to you whether you jump out of bed and grab them with both hands.
It’s only when you push yourself out of a comfortable space, that you get to experience the magic. That magic might be a magnificent sunrise in winter, or it might be renewed confidence that comes from a change in your fitness or diet routine, or the extra sales you close due to a renewed effort with your prospecting.
Right now there is magic happening all around you, as your colleagues and competitors are getting out of their comfortable beds and challenging themselves to grow, and the results are amazing.
What are you going to do this week that is going to challenge you?
How many opportunities have you wasted because its just too warm and cozy under your duvet?
Maybe it’s time to kick off your warm duvet and jump out of bed.
