Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction. Click To Tweet
Mornings can set the tone for our entire day. Here’s a perfect example… Have you ever woken up after a particularly good dream and felt like you could conquer the world that day? I mean like more than a just waking up after a good nights rest?
Every once in a long while, I will get up in the morning after a really crazy but GOOD dream and feel exceptionally happy and hopeful! That feeling sometimes sticks with me throughout the day. And although maybe nothing special happened, by the time the day is over I’ve realized that although maybe nothing externally was different, the way I felt inside made for a great and productive day.
Well, admittedly that doesn’t happen to me very often. A typical scenario for me is to wake up tired, unmotivated, and not really looking forward to another day in the office grinding it out. Sometimes, it takes time and effort to shake off the cobwebs and get motivated to face the day.
I can do things like get some coffee, meditate, and exercise to get the physical and mental juices flowing. But in the end it’s often simple determination that prevails and gets me to have a productive day whether I feel like it or not. When I go to bed at night I can be satisfied that I’ve done my best and hopefully contributed to my goals or helped another towards theirs.
