  • Why is it so important to get up early?

  • Some of you don't want it

  • that's why you ain't got it.

  • I don't sleep when I'm tired, I sleep when I'm done.

  • The average millionaire wakes up at 4 AM

  • So it started off 4 o'clock in the morning I would start, I start with my cardio

  • then I'd have breakfast and then I would go to the gym and then I go to work.

  • Some of you all have no idea what 4 AM looks like.

  • Why would you not wake up at 4:30?

  • Because you're too busy sleeping in

  • I'm pretty sure I wake up earlier than all of you.

  • We don't sleep when we're tired, we sleep when we are done.

  • Too busy hitting the snooze button multiple times.

  • Excuses sound best to the person that's making them up.

  • And if we can really be honest

  • some of you all don't even go to bed until it's about 4 AM

  • if you can get up before the rest of the world is awake, right

  • Before the enemy is awake

  • you get so much done, you're so much more productive.

  • Stop feeling sorry for yourself, wake your ass up.

  • And they ask me, why are you up so early?

  • Take responsibility to make your life happy.

  • Awaken the beast inside

  • Wake up at 4 AM

  • So I begin to tell myself there must be a reason.

  • When you have something to do, when you have someone to love

  • when you have something to look forward to,

  • you get up in the morning.

  • See people who have something to look forward to, don't need an alarm clock

  • because they have a reason for being.

  • If you want to have one of the best lives in the world

  • which is you live on your terms?

  • You have to pay your dues to get there.

  • You've decided that you're not going to allow your circumstances to define you.

  • You've decided that you're not going to allow the events,

  • things, people, life determine who you become.

  • You got a problem with your life,

  • you got a problem with your environment

  • do something about it.

  • If you want more freedom in your life, you have to have more discipline.

  • If you do what is easy your life will be hard

  • but if you do what is hard

  • your life will be easy.

  • You decided that you're not going to go through life being a whiner

  • being a complainer

  • that you're going to take responsibility for what it is that you want to create

  • the greatest ability that God has given humankind above the animals

  • is the ability to choose.

  • On a normal day when you are very productive,

  • think about how much you can actually get accomplished in 3 hours.

  • If you seriously put your mind to it,

  • you can study several chapters for that upcoming exam.

  • You can read an entire book of about a 150 pages.

  • You can get a full workout,

  • shower, and take your time getting dressed in 3 hours.

  • You can type several chapters of your book in 3 hours.

  • What I'm saying is,

  • you can get 3 hours closer to greatness in 3 hours.

  • There was an article that was posted

  • in "Business Insider" that said

  • that 3 hours seems to be the sweet spot

  • to being significantly successful.

  • So here's the question

  • What are you missing out on by sleeping in?

  • Everything.

  • What are you giving up by sleeping in?

  • Everything.

  • What are you gaining by sleeping in?

  • Nothing!

  • What are you accomplishing by sleeping in?

  • Nothing!

  • I know what you're thinking.

  • I know what you're saying to yourself.

  • You're probably wondering, well who wakes up early?

  • Well,

  • Tim Cook,

  • The CEO of Apple

  • wakes up early.

  • Bob Iger,

  • the CEO of Disney

  • wakes up early.

  • Andrea Jung,

  • the CEO of Avon

  • wakes up early.

  • Howard Schultz,

  • the CEO of Starbucks

  • wakes up early.

  • Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson,

  • wakes up early.

  • What about you,

  • what time do you wake up?

  • You're missing out on precious moments,

  • and opportunities to get things done.

  • You've heard the excuse,

  • "I don't have enough time in the day"

  • Or you might have heard people say,

  • "I wish I had more time"

  • My question is,

  • "What are you doing with the time you have?"

  • Better yet,

  • if you claim that you don't have enough time,

  • what are you doing to create time?

  • What areas are you willing to sacrifice to produce more time?

  • The truth is you have the time.

  • However, you may not be using it wisely.

  • Well guess what?

  • Elon Musk has 24 hours.

  • Beyonce has 24 hours.

  • LeBron James has 24 hours.

  • Warren Buffett has 24 hours.

  • Bill Gates has 24 hours.

  • Jeff Bezos has 24 hours.

  • Mark Zuckerberg has 24 hours.

  • You also have 24 hours.

  • Everyone has 24 hours per day,

  • but some seem to be more successful than others.

  • You know why?

  • Because they value time, and know how important time is.

  • And if they feel that they don't have enough time,

  • they don't mind sacrificing other things to create more time.

  • So if that means you have to wake up at 4 AM.

  • to gain 3 more hours in your day,

  • then that is what you will have to do.

  • There is no if's, and's or but's about it.

  • That is if you want to be successful.

  • If not,

  • keep sleeping in until 10 AM. or later.

  • 5 years down the line,

  • you're going to find yourself in the same position you're in now.

  • If not, you don't have to listen to anything else I'm saying to you.

  • But I just figured that I was talking to someone

  • that wants to succeed at all costs.

  • Someone that wants to pass their exams.

  • Someone that wants to make it to the level you didn't even know existed.

  • I want you to try it out.

  • For one day, just one day, wake up at 4 AM

  • See how much you can

  • possibly accomplish in those 3 or 4 hours

  • After that,

  • wake up the second day at 4 AM. Do the same thing!

  • After that, do it for a week.

  • After that, do it for 21 days until it becomes a habit.

  • Challenge yourself.

  • That is the only way you're going to do better.

  • You want to be a millionaire?

  • A billionaire, a success story, a CEO, a boss,

  • and a straight-A student?

  • Do yourself a favor and gain a few hours each day

  • by waking up at 4 AM

  • your future, successful, straight-A, billionaire self

  • will thank you.
