Wake Up

The hardest part about waking up every morning is when you know that there is nothing interesting today, there is nothing to look foward now, there is no motivation to move on, yet somehow you summon the energy there is to get up from bed and act like this is going to be the best day of your life.

This is why I keep reminding myself every morning, that no matter how difficult it is or how dark my mind may perceive this day, this week, this month, this year is going to be. I have to wake up. And I have to wake up good.

If today is gonna be a bad day, it is not going to change with me not waking up, hiding in the room avoiding the sun in a gloom and doom. If this week is gonna be a bad week, it is not going to change with my worries and my complains about how unfortunate and pathetic my life is. If this year is gonna be challenging, it is not going to be less burdenful if I refuse to get up, wake up, and fight against it with the little bit that I can.

So wake up. Because change will come and is made by a small group of people, who believe if they persisted, if they insisted, they will light up their day, and they will light up their lives. It is not easy, it is easy the first day, it is easy the first week, but to do it forever. It's not just a change in your attitute, it is a change to how you think, it is a change to everything. Haven you heard the quote from Oprah that says "if you want your life to be more rewarding, you have to change how you think"?

So wake up before the sun rises up to the noonsky, because the day starts early. And your life starts there.

There are two parts to my secret of which this is the only one I am sharing. Because if I'd tell you part 2, you will call me religious and ask me to stop preaching. But be sure, this is better than nothing and way above par from what any motivational speakers can tell you. The difference between me and motivational speakers is that they study motivation and teach them to you. Me? I generate them from my mind and share it genuinely from my heart. I don't read books, I don't trust them. The theories of the world only serve to reconfirm my opinions and further justify my righteousness. SO WAKE UPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!
