What Gets You Out Of Bed?


Why do you get out of bed in the morning? What drives you? What is that one thing that makes you face the day? Everyone has something. Maybe you have more than one thing. Maybe it is your kick ass job. Maybe it is the job you are trying to get. Maybe you get out of bed for someone in particular. I want you to ask yourself this question and if you can’t think of anything you ain’t trying hard enough. If you don’t have something why get out of bed? Do you do it because you have to or because it is what society claims as socially acceptable.

Why not get out of bed in the morning with a purpose. Brainstorm your reasons and see how far you can take it. If making money drives you to get out of bed then ask yourself why? What will that money do for you? Is it for your own self worth? Do you get out of bed to feel like you’ve made it? To help give yourself a feeling of success.

You have to have a reason, you got to have a purpose. I stress this so much because people everyday drift around without a purpose. You were not put on this earth to “drift” you were put on earth because you are powerful beyond belief and you DO have a purpose. Starting tomorrow I want you to wake up with something in mind. Whether you have 10 things your waking up for or only 1 it doesn’t matter. Waking up with a reason to be alive is not only good for yourself it will rub off on the people around you.

  1. Thank you for this post. Somewhere along the way, the day to day grind has pulled me away from what I know Is my purpose. I started reading your post and what was first my breath being taking away by anxiety became such a peaceful feeling in my lungs. I am recommitting to what I know is my purpose, what would make me smile and be thankful to wake up in the morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  2. I like this post. I’m fascinated by the early hours of morning. I get out of bed and the first thing i do is make a list of what i’m looking forward to that day, an idea pioneered by Shawn Anchor. People get weighed down by what they have to do, not what they’re looking forward to. Focusing on the good things makes getting out of bed much easier.
