It's Sunday Motivation time!
Another Sunday is here, another week has gone, another one about to start. How are you all feeling about what you did with the week past? Did you live it to its fullest? Slack a little? Waste it away? Are you excited about the new week so you can have another chance to make the week great and do all that you wanted to do?
I saw a quote this morning that went a little something like this:
"5:00AM: The hour when legends are either waking up, or going to bed."
Me, personally, I have not seen 5:00 am for either one of these reasons in a looong time! I am the girl that hits snooze at least five times, the one who does not mind that the sun beats her out of bed every day, and the one that does not mind missing out on that worm for an extra half hour of sleep in the morning. I am not a "morning person" and it takes me time, and a lot of coffee to be ready for the day. I love a full nights sleep and there isn't much I would give it up for.
However, what I think this quote was trying to say was not that we should all deprive ourselves of another good nights sleep. We should not walk around every day like zombies and hope that success doesn't recognize that we are functioning on energy drinks, coffee, or 5 hour energy shots. In fact, I am not sure that the deeper meaning behind this quote had anything at all to do with sleep at all.
I think what this person was trying to say is that "legends" or successful people are simply willing and determined to give the time, energy, and hard work that others may not be willing to. They are willing to put in long hours and give up some of the "fun" that others are having to set themselves apart in the realm of success. They aren't afraid to lose some sleep (although we all need a physically healthy state of mind to be successful as well- enter sleep...) or give hours of their time working hard on something they feel passionate about. They are the people who give 110% to reaching their goals no matter what time of day and what obstacles may find their way onto the path.
So, another Sunday is here, another week has gone, another one about to start. Are you going to be a legend this week? Are you going to be the sunrise? The "5:00 am"? The one who pushes yourself harder and further than last week?
Or, the one who hits snooze, hands the trophy over to the sun, and deals with leftover worms?
