Early to Rise Day: Day 12 Stop being avarage!

Rise Time . . . 5:39

This morning went better. I am still finding it hard to have the motivation to get out of bed but at least I had a good night sleep last night. No one woke up in the middle of the night. Hurray!

I was really inspired today by the reading in Early To Rise: Learn To Rise Early in 30 Days. If you don't want to be average then you need to start going against the flow.
Let's think about successful people who are average . . . thinking . . . still thinking. . .
Now how about people who are successful. Well I can say that professional athletes are not average. They work hard and often go against the flow to be better than every one else. Bill Gates, I'd say he is far from average and a self made billionaire. Successful A list and even B list actors and actresses are far from average. Many worked their butts off in unconventional ways to fulfill their dreams.
Now lets look at history, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Dr. Martin Luther King, Ghandi, and Jesus. What do all these people have in common? They went against the flow. They made themselves better by being different.
Are you happy being average, being just like everyone else. Are you one of the cookie cutter people letting others tell you how to be happy? Getting up early is such a small part of changing your life. Mornings are your time to reflect and decide how you will spend your day and how. Will you be avarage and blend in with everyone else or will you be different and have an attitude that says I am different. Are you going to be happy and spread that happiness to others or walk around like everyone else who are frazzled, tired, and unhappy. Every morning and every day the choice is yours.

(If you popped over from MSM, I'd love to hear how you are doing.)


  1. I am doing the Early to Rise challenge too. This was a very thought provoking, inspiring post. I've got a lot of thinking to do before I actually post tonight! I think this is one of the best days yet, on the challenge.

    I can't wait to read more of your posts!

  2. Thanks for your comment. I was really inspired by today's reading and I'm very glad you liked it.
