    How to get up early by Celebrated Author Robin Sharma of ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ fame


    June 2, 2013

    ED knows and believes that progressive youth is the reason for any economy’s growth. And for the youth to be progressive, the ABC starts with waking up early. However we also know that most of you will agree that we have become night birds, with facebook, twitter, watching movies on the pc, chatting with friends, smart-phoning, happening all through the bat hour. For us even the idea of sleeping before a 12/1 am seems funny. We prefer studying through the pm hours instead of waking up in the am and cramming for that boring history paper. 
    But all the laals of your mom, please remind yourself of what she always says. RISE AND SHINE! Sad but true. And we, with all our laziness have to now accept this fact. So we dug some stuff on this to help you and us wake up like a bird and prepare for the walk of success.
    Here’s what Robin Sharma. world renowned author of ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ writes:

    Get up uber-early. That way you have your day – versus your day having you.
    I was up early this am. I thought it might be helpful to you if I shared what I do to help me get up between 4 and 5 am on most days (aside from travel days):

    1. I try to workout daily. This dramatically drives energy levels. You’ll feel more inspired. And you’ll need less sleep.

    2. A massage each week. This isn’t an expense – it’s an investment in your full creative expression/productivity/passion and sustained excellent health. And you’ll find you need far less sleep.

    3. Do your Holy Hour. If you’ve read The Greatness Guide , you know about this key leadership practice. Take 60 minutes from 5-6 am and get inspired. Read superb books. Write about your hopes, goals and dreams within your journal. Say your mantras. Hit the gym. You’ll start feeling so good/energetic, getting up early will be effortless.

    4. Meditation. I just find that 30 minutes of meditation in the morning clears out my mind. And with less worry and more clarity, I sleep more deeply. So I need less.

    5. Remember The 40 Day Rule. Any new practice will feel foreign/stressful/hard for the first 40 days as you repattern. Stick with the 5 am rise. Have the courage and persistence to get this habit installed. After 40 days, you’ll have a new protocol in place that – I promise you – will boost your leadership and pour far more passion/success/happiness into every area of your life.
