Well I was sitting back enjoying my early morning time, I thought about how many people start their days like I do – Early!
It seems to me that I never was an early riser when I was in my 30’s, but I believe that in my early 40’s is when I seen the light (literally the early morning light!).
You know, it is safe to say that everything you do in life, whether it is a success or a failure, you learn from it.
I started to sell Mary Kay cosmetics in my early 40s. My Director was great and shared with us all the wonderful things that this company had to offer. I was reading one of the Mary Kay Ashe books and she talked about the 5’clock club. That is when I started to like my early morning times. Mary Kay Ashe said she got more done at that time than any other time of the day.
So, moving forward, I eventually stopped selling Mary Kay as I never got the pink car I wanted (haha) and I set my sites on selling Real Estate. Since I have been in this business, I have met coaches and speakers who talk about the early morning “Me time”. They say the most successful people in the world (ie., Tim Cook, Bob Igor, Howard Schultz, Anna Wintor) are up around 4:30 – 5:30am.
For me, I love to get my coffee, light my candle and read my book. Now those who know me know that I am always reading! I usually have at least two books on the go at all times. One motivational book (my early morning) and then my “fluff” book.
Reading, meditating, doing my “TO DO List” and drinking my coffee, that is how I start my day.
So how do you start your day?
Do you give yourself time to “start the day”?
Do you do your best thinking at this time?
