Hello all,

Thanks again for taking a moment to read about my success story.

It was almost 10 years ago when I had a case of reverse-insomnia. The number of hours in my daily sleep was limited by eating and bathroom breaks.

I went from hating to get up to waking up at just after 6:00am every day and am more productive and am accomplishing more than ever. I tackle the thing I dislike the most doing first thing in the morning and the rest of the day is a bonus!

If you are looking to change from sleeping all day to making the most of your day, the Success Sensei offers the following advice to turn the tide of nappy time to your terms.

1. Get a comfy bed.
– If you aren’t getting quality sleep then it won’t matter how much sleep you get, it won’t ever feel enough.

2. Eliminate distractions.
– Why not take the time and/or money to fix that leaky tap instead of listening to it all night long and then complaining about it the day after. Does your significant other snore… well then get earplugs. Don’t take or make excuses.

3. Wake Up Your Way.
– I haven’t met anyone who enjoyed the tormenting blast of a buzzer first thing in the morning so why do most of us choose to wake up by it? How much calmer and happy would you be if you started off your day with your favorite song? Buy a CD alarm clock or find another way to make this happen.

4. Treat Your Feet.
– If you’re floor is cold and you hate touching your bare feet against it in the morning then why not adjust your thermostat to heat up earlier in the am before you get up? Don’t have an auto thermostat? Improvise by buying comfy slippers that you can keep warm under the sheets overnight until you’re ready to use them.

5. Incentive For The Bathroom
– No this isn’t a reward system for going potty, what this means is that you need to create something exciting in your bathroom so that you are enticed to get right out of bed and get right to it in the bathroom in the morning. It doesn’t matter what you use it could be soap, shampoo, shaving cream, great perfume or cologne or whatever. The test for knowing whether or not its a good incentive? The thought of using this item compels you enough to get out of bed.

6. Incentive for Life
– Last but deinitely not least is the most important piece of the puzzle. One of the strongest supporting factors in my own ability to get up was building a strong enough reason to. Wayne Dyer so that the biggest reason why people don’t want to get out of bed is because they don’t have any reason to. Find your reason and you will find yourself getting out of bed in the morning.

As always, the Success Sensei is open to your feedback, questions, or any ideas on how I can support you through your journey to greatness.
