Wake Up With Power & Motivation!

If you ever woke up and said to yourself, “oh my god, i’m so tired, i need more sleep or… oh damn i’m late!”, then here are some ideas for you to wake up with power and motivated instead of being disempowered and demotivated.

  • Say Yes! when you wake up! What’s better than to charge the brain with great enthusiasm when you wake up? Or…
  • Immediately jump out of bed and say Yes! Tough task at first, but really good to ‘reprogram’ the mind instead of programming it to ‘snooze’ the alarm. You think psyhing yourself up is weird? Yes it is, beats ‘oh got to work, oh… i’m so tired, oh… how i wish today’s sunday…’
  • Stretch! Quick stretch when you just wake up. And a longer stretch when you get out of bed. Just a 5 minutes one will do. Get the blood circulating.
  • Drink water! We are dehydrated during sleep and that makes us tired when we wake up. Heard of water therapy? It’s a therapy where you drink 1 litres of water when you wake up to detox the body. You may want to start off with just a glass.
  • Focus on your goals! I was a top sales performer in my early twenties, one of my daily routine when i wake up is look ahead at my goals (i plastered an A4 sheet of paper in front of my bed with my goals written on it) and read it out loud with emotions. Pretty good feeling to motivate yourself and remind yourself why you are working so hard and what are you getting off bed for. I stopped doing this for a while, right now i started it again, i have my goals in front of me and when i wake up, i look at it and visualize. The goal is transforming Sales Ninja into a global sales training franchise. It has already happened, just a matter of time.
  • Think! What important things you want to accomplish today? Why not visualize success?
  • Music! Pump yourself up with great music. Don’t put on those sad – break up songs. Put on trance or some motivational or inspirational songs that will groove you to action.
  • Say I Love You! Say it to your spouse. I’m sure she/he will feel fantastic. Maybe you end up with some action in the morning too.
  • Meditate! My friend Raymond is a regular meditator in the morning. It helps clear the mind of unwanted thoughts to prepare for the day.
  • Count your blessings! Typically done at night, why not try it in the morning?
  • Read! Yes, right when you wake up. I think long ago, forgotten whether it’s Brian Tracy or Denis Waitley or Zig Ziglar (the legends) said this and i did it when i was selling and boy, it’s really good nutrition for the mind.
  • Stay away from tv/radio! Don’t pollute the mind with bad news. If possible, put on great stuff in the car on the way to work. I don’t have songs in my car, it’s filled with personal development series. If my mind is jammed, i put in trance music to loosen it. I’ve turned my car into a moving university, i’ve learned so much while travelling. What good will music do when travelling? Listen to it when you are home, during work, listen to ideas.

Do not do this all at once. It won’t happen and it’s not sustainable. Just pick one where you feel ‘hm… this resonates’ and do that. Just one. My saying in all my trainings.
