Early to Rise Challenge…Don’t Let the Past Dictate Today

Early To Rise Banner


Don’t let past failure determine your future

Is getting up early something hard for you to do? Maybe you have told yourself I am not a morning person. Maybe you have tried getting up early and after a few days of trying just forgot about getting up early and went back to your old routine. If you really want to make the change and get up early don’t let your past failures dictate what you will do today.

Everyone has a bad morning when they turn off the alarm roll over and go back to sleep. But you don’t have to let that one morning or week of mornings determine your here and now. Each day is a new beginning, a new point to start over. Don’t let the past dictate what your action will be in the present or future.

You can do it, you can get up early. It might not be easy but I know you can do it. Just believe in yourself. If someone would have told me I could get used to getting up before the sun I would have laughed at them. I would have had all these excuses for why I couldn’t, how it just wasn’t me. Now if someone asked me if I was an early riser I would answer yes. The last 15 days have really been a challenge for me but I have so enjoyed the quiet time. You can do it too, I know you can.

Today was the first day I was up before my alarm,

Friday Alarm Done

How did you do today at getting up early? Did you experience victory or did the warm magnet of a bed win today?
