Wake Up, Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up, Never Give Up.
Want to jump start your day? Your career? Your life? Try these simple steps:
Wake up. Get Up.
Early birds seem to have a slight advantage over night owls. Study after study indicate that early risers are more productive. They tend to be more organized, focused, and goal-oriented, often incorporating planning and preparation time for the day into their morning routine. Getting an early start to the day can even have an impact on mood; many early risers report feeling a greater sense of optimism, attentiveness, and general sense of well-being.
Wake up and get moving. It will not only have a greater impact on your daily routine, your mood, and productivity level, but it begins to cultivate an increased level of self-discipline, which translates into other areas of life.
It’s important to “Dress for Success”; how you dress literally reflects how you feel about yourself and others. Your clothes visually communicate a lot to the world, and while the standards for “professional attire” evolve and change with the times, it is always important to dress with appropriate respect to the situation.
But are you “wearing” the right attitude? Your worldview is often just as visible as the clothes you put on for the day. Make sure you’re “dressing for success” by donning a confident, enthusiastic perspective. It will have an enormously positive impact on your life, as well as those around you.
You can’t expect to do well in any pursuit – personal or professional- if you don’t show up. It is only when you are fully present and actively engaged that you can be successful, and more importantly, find meaning and purpose in your life.
Never Give Up.
Be persistent in your work, in your goals, in your life. Be determined to achieve your desired results and do not quit until you have succeeded. You will experience setbacks. You will experience difficulties. At times, you may need to take a detour. But keep going. Keep moving forward.
Wake up, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up . . . and watch your life transform.
