Be the first one up. I want to see that sun pop. I want to know that I beat the sun up.
Here’s this powerful mechanism called the sun, and I whooped it this morning because I was up before it was. I’ve already got more done than all of my competition. Look, if I go to sleep at 9 o’clock with 7 full hours of good sleep, it’s 4 in the morning. That means I’d have a 3 or 4 hour head start on everybody else including the sun, which is a tremendous energy source. I want to be the first one up in my company, I want to be the first one up in my neighborhood. Look, I want to be the first one up in my city saying, “Baby, let’s rock and roll. “When everybody else is having their first cup of coffee, I’ve already finished dressing, working out, writing my goals… I got a head start! Baby, don’t play fair! Don’t ever play fair. Be ethical, but don’t play fair. How do I do that? Go to sleep early, get up first and get a head start. Early bird gets the worm – gets that big head start.
Try that. You might be tired at first thinking you just want to roll over and sleep a little bit more. Look, force yourself out of bed early, be 2 or 3 hours ahead of everyone else and I guarantee you the motivation will be unbelievable!
