Courage and resolve; strength of character - Grit.
Every time you think about quitting, about sleeping through your alarm, but don't, you are building character. There are going to be day's or events in your life you don't feel like getting up: Christmas, vacation, weekends. You have a choice. You can use an excuse "It's the holiday's"; "I'm too tired"; "I don't have time" ; "no one else is getting up right now"; Or you can be that 5% of the population who are owning their mornings to elevate their life. Who do you want to be?
"We become strong, brave and moral whilst standing resolutely in the storms of adversity, difficulty and doubt. It is in the moment that you face your deepest weakness that you receive the chance to forge your greatest strengths. Real power, then, comes not from a life of ease but one of intense effort, devoted discipline and demanding action.
To continue at a time when you ache to stop. To advance when you long to quit. To persist in the instant when you feel like giving up" this is Grit.
The 5 am Club really is about becoming YOUR BEST SELF. It is not about becoming the best in one day but rather working everyday to be just a little bit better. Daily improvements and wins that stack up over time to become excellence. So no matter what your goals are, give yourself the chance to reach them but starting each morning focusing just on you. Before the world wakes up, before kids, significant others, animals, work; take an hour to focus on you.
It's time to leave all the excuses behind. Time to reach your goals.
