Wake up with a purpose

June 24th - how you start your day is crucial 

Always remember to fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.

I used to work and found out that my day would look like the way I started it.  If I woke up grumpy, my day turned out to be grumpy as well.  Sometimes its out of our control but when you start your day well, you feel better in no time.

It’s the key to having the best days of your life. Our days are not created equal and its hard to schedule free time when we have so many tasks to do. Waking up early combined with a morning routine is consider the number one stategy to disapline ourselves into reaching our goals.

The principal is simple.  If you can’t follow your goals in the afternoon and evening because of external factors, wake up early when you are free of external disturbances. feel more productive and don’t have other things on your mind.

It depends on what we want to accomplish in the morning. Our personal life goals should always be our top priority, not our routines, which are just routine, not more.

Goals are actions that we have to be committed to doing, while routines are series of actions incorporated in our daily life that don’t requite a high level of commitment.

We need a certain amount of will power.  By turning actions and activities in routines it needs less will power.  and we are able to do the tasks more readily.

If you want to wake up early to pursue your goals you need to discipline yourself.  My purpose was always to support and take care of my family, so I made sure to do my work everyday and tried to make it good day every day.

We can’t control what happens but we can control our attitude toward what happens  Having a purpose gives you a reason to wake up.

Purpose is the driving force behind eery action we take.  Without it, it won’t last long and success won’t come.  By having it, and keeping it though the process , we manage to stay motivated and eventually achieve out goal.

We live in a world where most people are always in a hurry, doing things they don’t want to do.  Spending time with people that don’t care about, working for someone they can’t stand.   It’s a matter choice for each one of us.

We just need to put our hearts and souls into what we want to  do.

The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

Even now, long retired, I do my best work in the morning and try to get to do some blogging in the mornings. I also schedule.Have a great day!

I think sticking to a good morning routine helps to start the day off right.

Yes! When I was working I set the alarm half-hour earlier than normal so I might enjoy the little things -- lingering over coffee and reading devotionals. Unfortunately, after retiring and relocating, I drifted and dog-paddled my way through the days. Thankfully, early this year I set up a routine (of sorts) and feel much better for having done so.

I am a up and dressed first thing type of person, as I find it helps me wake up if I wash and dress first off. I am not a dressing gown and cuppa person.
