Did you know that many of the CEO’s of big and successful companies such as GE, Starbucks, and PepsiCo are already up and about while most people are still dreaming?
Yes, it’s true and if you do a little research about it, you will come to know that these successful businessman have been using this method to get more of their day and incidentally to gain more profits for their companies.
So you might be wondering...
“What can these already successful entrepreneurs be getting from waking up early?”
#1. Gives You A Sense Of Tranquility
Waking up early in the morning gives you the chance to view the world while everything is still peaceful. There isn’t much activity yet from people, vehicles, pets and the silence at this time can be a very good chance to meditate and find your inner peace.
If you think about it, there isn’t a better time in the day to reflect on your life than in the early morning. You’re rested and refreshed so you can think about important matters clearly.
At the end of your day, you may be overwhelmed with problems or things that you have to deal with. Waking up early in the morning provides you the chance to tackle your worries with a clear mind. In the morning, you have a different perception of things as you can see things more clearly than last night when you were tired.
This time of the day gives you a chance to think of better and fresher ways of handling things.
#2. Gives You A Head-Start
In business, it is very important that you’re ahead of your competition. If you’re still sleeping while your rival company is already doing business, then you could lose a lot.
Some CEO’s who target the Asian or European market have to wake up at 3am just so they can conduct business while the other side of the world is still active or is just starting to stir. Waking up way ahead of your competitors will give you an edge as you’re able to plan, reflect, communicate, and conduct business ahead of them.
Most heads of big companies also use this time to do things that they won’t have time for in the day such as read the paper, answer emails, or do research.
They also use this time to catch up on stuff they missed out on such as checking on internet sites that concern their business. And most importantly, successful entrepreneurs wake up early so that they can plan their day.
This is the time to prepare for business meetings - agendas, what to say, how to say it, what to wear, etc. Getting up early gives you the extra time you need for the day.
#3. Gives You Time To Exercise
With people getting busier and busier each day, there is never enough time to do a proper workout.
During the day or at the end of it, businessmen can become physically and mentally tired that doing any kind of exercise is simply out for the question. However, if you wake up early in the morning, you can have some time to really exercise without being bothered to sign some papers or handle business matters.
Keep in mind that most businessmen stay in the office and have meetings, giving them almost no chance to burn any cholesterol and fat. Value your health and exercise daily early in the morning.
Rising early can really be beneficial for every person. Not only does it give you a chance to do more, it also makes you feel better about your day. By waking up early, you feel more confident to face the day ahead of you because you’re physically and mentally prepared for any challenges.
