Lately we’ve been on the social media tip, because social media is your new job that can free you from all of your financial struggles. However, with that comes a certain amount of time that’s needed to make things happen. You know that success leaves clues, and the early bird gets the worm. Let’s take a look at some characteristics of millionaires, and follow their clues to success. Millionaires tend to get up earlier than anyone else for a number of reasons, and we’ll go into those reasons below!
- Getting up early gives you time to connect with your higher power!
Whether it is God or anyone else, waking up early puts you in a spiritual place that you can connect with the divine! You can then receive messages that help you shape yourself! I’m not sure about you, but waking up early and talking to God does something amazing for my day and my life! The Most High wants nothing more than for you to be prosperous, and getting up early to connect with Him will see you reaching that success faster than others!
- You get time to focus and plan!
The problem that many of you have is that there’s no time to think, much less have a big vision. Many of you don’t have a vision beyond your next paycheck, or a vision of being able to leave your job! In order to focus, you must have a vision of being able to pay bills, to be financially free, and then focus on that vision!
You also get time to plan! Waking up at normal time means that you’ll likely enter into chaos! Sometimes you have to get up off your “assets” earlier than normal and get to planning! Sleeping in late is for the ones that have money and don’t have a problem in the world. Get up in the morning and plan like your life depends on your next level!
- Waking up early gives you time to count your money!
There are certain things that I do on a daily basis, and one of those things is count my money. It gives me a head start on what I need to do in order to generate more revenue. Counting your money early lets you be honest as to whether or not you need to go out and make more money! If we’re being totally honest, my team is usually paid before their feet hit the floor in the morning on Friday, because I’m up that early counting my own money!
Waking up early to count your money also holds you accountable to changing that number! Get out of your fear of being too scared to look at your bank account; the number may scare you, but it should also motivate you!
- Waking up early ensures that you give the best part of yourself to you!
When you wake up early and before anyone else, it is time for you to give to yourself! You are literally giving yourself the best part of you when you wake up early! You’re not just coming off of the job! You hadn’t just made dinner, done laundry, or picked up the dry cleaning. Waking up early can sometimes be seen as selfish, but sometimes your next level hinges on you being a little selfish! Give yourself the part of you that is sharp, alert, crisp and excited!
Consider the alternative. If you don’t wake up early and give yourself the best part of you, your job gets the best part! Your family gets the best part (and don’t get me wrong, sometimes they should)! The bottom line is if you start off at your normal time, you’re wearing yourself down, and then when it’s time for you, you have nothing left! Last, but not least…
- You can get lots of work done!
This one is so simple it’s silly! When you get up early, take a look at how many times your phone rings. Look at how many Facebook notifications you receive. Your spouse isn’t calling or bothering you. Your children are still asleep. You can get two or three hours of work done just by waking up early!
Though social media is the focus, you should certainly wake up early so that you can apply these steps to your own endeavors within social media! We said before that social media is your new job. Do you want to be successful with social media and leave your job? Follow the clues of the successful and get up early to get that million dollar worm! If you need help, invest in the help!
