- 11/08/2017Did you snooze that alarm this morning? Be honest! Why?
You see, that's just it. If you have a big enough reason WHY to get up in the morning, you will have no problem with an alarm clock. Heck, you might even start to get up just before the alarm. I did it as a kid. I can again, now too.
However, the other day I was pissed. My dog woke me up early. Earlier than my early alarm!
But then once I got up, had a glass of water and took the darn dog out for a stroll, I woke up. Literally. Ideas started coming to me. I started noticing my surroundings. I was awake!
And you know what? It didn't kill me. I didn't suffer. I might have been a little bit more tired way later that day if this happened all the time, but I got a gift. More time for me. So I could think of ways to give more to others.
You will get up on your own because you want to. Because you need to. Because you have to.
Your body knows more than you think. (Think about that for a minute! ;)
How can this be?
Your reason to get up in the morning doesn't start with an alarm clock. It starts with your WHYs. Those don't happen at a set time. They become part of you. They drive you. They wake you up!
What do you think?

Comments29/01/2017 #4 Tom MitchellThanks for the feedback and catching the play on the "catcher" part of the dream catcher image, Phil.

I was also subliminally saying don't let the negative things in when following your dreams.29/01/2017 #3 Phil FriedmanThe message of perseverance, though, is a good one for all of us to keep in mind.. However, the traditional purpose of the Native American dream catcher is to prevent bad dreams from entering one's abode, hence one's sleeping mind. The image is great, but the metaphor perhaps a bit mixed. Cheers!29/01/2017 #2 Jared 🐝 WieseGREAT post, Tom! Thank you so much for sharing the link and your experience!
Like you said, "Everybody has a passion for something, but unless it’s actionable, it’s simply aspirational."
In the linked post, "Create a habit of applying these lessons, because these are the biggest keys that I managed to glean from the personal development industry and my life experience . These are the lessons from the best gurus on this the planet—Tony Robbins, Eckhart Tolle, Jim Rohn, Brendon Burchard, Darren Hardy, Napoleon Hill, Stephen Covey and many others."
Your post and the linked one are very aspirational, even inspirational. But how do we create these habits? How do we make any of it actionable?

Comments25/01/2017 #13 Karan Johnson#11 Hi Jared,
Thanks for the kind welcome message and sharing my posts in so many hives. Being a newbee, I didn’t even know that some of them existed. I’ll be checking them all out.
I’ve just had a look at Twilight and I wish I came across it before, as I would have tested it and mentioned it in my article.
I think sleep is a work in progress for most of us :)
A huge thank you again for taking the time to read my article and for sharing it.25/01/2017 #11 Jared 🐝 WieseHi Karan,
Great first post on beBee. Welcome!
First things first, for welcomes, I'm sharing in the beBee Interviews and Introductions hive.
I love life hacks! There's even a hive for that. Lots of great tips here...
For posture, I'm sharing to the Egoscue Method hive. I often get back pain from sitting at a desk all day. You might check it out. Covers the exercise and HIIT aspects to, hopefully.
For "me-me" time, have you heard of the Miracle Morning? Sharing there too. Gratitude and reflection are so key. Dang, could share in the Tony Robbins hive too!
I'm still working on sleep. But the blue light helps. f.lux seems similar to an app I've been using called Twilight.
Great stuff! Sorry for the delay. Thank you for sharing all this!20/01/2017 #7 Karan Johnson#3 Hi @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, it does take a deliberate daily effort to do non-business related things that make a difference to my health. I can only imagine the challenges that your husband faces managing his IT Consulting Company.
It’s great news that he can take holidays more often. A break can do wonders for recharging the batteries. Thank goodness for remote working and competent employees :). Yay, to him exercising at his home office! Please let me know how he gets on using f.lux.20/01/2017 #5 Karan JohnsonHi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich you’re so right about the ease that bad habits can be created. I must admit that I worked from my bed or sofa when I started freelancing. I think I was slightly rebelling against anything desk-related, as I spent years sitting in an office :).
Neck strain was a sure-fire sign that I needed to change my ways.
Like you, I now have a simple set-up (a desk and chair) that is much more ergonomic. So yes, good posture is absolutely a big part in keeping ourselves well when working from home.20/01/2017 #3 Lisa 🐝 GallagherGreat tips @Karan Johnson. I think it's cool that you recognized what is important and works for you in order to be highly functional without getting ill or having a break down! Because my husband runs his own IT Consulting Co. he doesn't have a choice many times with regards to determining good times to not be on his PC. I will have to relate to him about f.lux you wrote of above, that may help him when he has to be online late at night. He used to take small vacations every 2-3 years but now he can go and not worry because he can work remotely if an issue comes up and he's trained his employees to do much more than they were doing when hired. He related to me he's been taking breaks in his office and doing exercises (his home office, that is). Thanks for this!20/01/2017 #2 Gerald Hecht#1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich If I understand what you are saying; I am an agreement..."practicing" optimal static and dynamic posture/movement through spacetime is so very vital for the ultimate ride of a lifetime; and it doesn't require any special "functional furniture"...Jacob hurt his his leg after climbing a ladder to heaven and getting ina scuffle with an angel/velvet rope bouncer.
All because instead of sleeping flat on the ground, he felt he had to rest his head on a "rock pillow"...a most unnatural sleeping position for proper oxygenation and avoiding disruptive episodes of apnea.20/01/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWellness while freelancing is crucial, @Karan Johnson, because it can be so easy to work in an unstructured manner and create bad habits.
Posture is a big thing to pay attention to, and it can be easy to use regular relaxing furniture with all our smart devices, but I know I am more focused and productive when I practice structural integrity while working. I have a completely bespoke set-up that almost guarantees good posture.
It is a bunch of random bits of furniture, but they are all at the appropriate heights to enable me to not force myself into strange contortionist positions. That is a very crucial aspect of wellness while working from home.

Comments12/01/2017 #22 Graham🐝 Edwards#12 Thanks for the comment and the compliment @Sara Jacobovici... I for one like to think in the car when I'm driving alone; I also love thinking with a "white board"... no pun intended : ) The question regarding boundaries is a great one... I think boundaries can be a great contradiction and many we create (both literally and figuratively) so that we can function and co-exist in groups greater than ten; the rub is we need to tear down or disregard boundaries to grow and become better. I haven't done justice to this so I am hoping people jump into this conversation as it speaks to how we co-exist, work together, stretch to be better and organize ourselves so we don't fall into anarchy.12/01/2017 #12 Sara JacoboviciAs always @Graham🐝 Edwards, you produced a very thought provoking piece. You've left me with much "to think about". Three things that stand out for me right now is, 1. "where" we choose to think is crucial. You offer an option. An important one. Your readers touched upon other "places" to think. So not only do we want to make time to think, we need to prepare that "space"within which we can think. And 2. (sorry, I am paradox obsessed) the idea of white as an "empty" space when one of its definitions is, "White is produced when all colors of the visible spectrum are combined." Finally 3., "White space is a process management concept described by Geary A. Rummler and Alan P. Brache in 1991 as the area between the boxes in an organizational chart; where, very often, no one is in charge." This leads to questions like; where do the boundaries come from, how were they defined and marked, what does take place when "no one is in charge"? This takes me in so many directions....have to find the place and time to think this through! Thanks Graham.12/01/2017 #11 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhether it is the white space as design element or white space as for thinking, appreciation is central and over time it works on us, and even better when we are not trying to change but actually learning to appreciate (both in value and values meaning of the word - appreciation).
I will certainly vouch for this. The ages between 17 and 37 and 37 and next year when I reach 57 are vastly different 20 year development periods (night and day in difference). The earlier involved absolutely not an iota of reading and daydreaming rather than thinking and ultimately time passing rather than appreciation.
I would not be doing this today, if I did not see the difference it has made in my life - and continues to make as time flows forward.11/01/2017 #7 Jared 🐝 WieseI loved "White space for thinking time" and "if you think something is important enough, you will find the time." Spot on.
Thank you for the reminder!

Comments29/03/2017 #36 Jared 🐝 Wiese#35 Glad you liked it, @Henri Galvão. You make a great point.
a. appreciative of benefits received
a : to grasp the nature, worth, quality, or significance of appreciate the difference between right and wrong
b : to value or admire highly She appreciates our work.
c : to judge with heightened perception or understanding : be fully aware of must see it to appreciate it
d : to recognize with gratitude I appreciate your kindness.
...They seem to almost be synonyms.
When you look at the origins:
- Grateful: mid 16th century: from obsolete grate ‘pleasing, agreeable, thankful’ (from Latin gratus ) + -ful.
- Appreciate: mid 16th century: from late Latin appretiat- ‘set at a price, appraised,’ from the verb appretiare, from ad- ‘to’ + pretium ‘price.’
... I'd say we can be grateful by choosing to have a pleasing view, even if a bad situation... even if we don't yet appreciate it's value yet ;)29/03/2017 #35 Henri GalvãoI'm grateful for this well researched text!
One thing that might be important to consider is the difference between gratitude and appreciation. I don't know if this difference is so relevant, but I feel that I practice a lot of the latter, but maybe not so much of the former.25/01/2017 #30 Preston 🐝 Vander VenIn 2 Chronicles 20:10-30, there is a wonderful story I want to share. It begins with King Jesophaphat in Judah. God’s people once again faced difficult times, and were about to be invaded by forces from every direction. As King, the first counsel he took was with the Lord. He prayed. In his prayer, Jehoshaphat “reminded” the Lord of their history: how He had driven out their enemies in the past and given the land to Israel. He mentioned the promises God had made to the people, and their promises to God. Then he ended with a simple statement: “We do not know what to do.”, “We look to You”.
At times, we all reach a place where we recognize we’re facing something bigger than ourselves – that we don’t know what to do. It is in these moments, we can say, “God, I can’t fix this, and don’t know how. But I look to you.” No matter what happens, we can be thankful – not because everything will work, but just because we can look to God.
Later in this story, a man named Jahaziel speaking from the Holy spirit told them not to be afraid, “for the battle is not yours, but God’s”. We are not able to solve every problem, but we can learn these things from Jahaziel’s words that day:
Put away fear and discouragement (verse 15)
Position yourselves and stand still (verse 17)
Watch God at work
On the morning of the battle, the prayers of the people turned to praise and thanksgiving. Because they began offering thanksgiving to God in song before the battle even began with a choir at the front of the line of the army it had a two-pronged effect. The soldiers under Jehoshaphat heard the praise to God going before them to remind them the battle belonged to God. Second, the enemy heard praise to the One who stood with Judah. The enemies were defeated.
I wanted to end with the title “Don’t Worry, Have Faith”. Yet, to have that faith, we first need to be grateful. Giving thanks is a conscious decision. You can take an action of faith with no thoughts in your head.

Comments12/01/2017 #31 Jared 🐝 Wiese#29 Thanks for the feedback, @Henri Galvão. I have been at least listing my top 3 tasks daily for months now, per Meier. It really does help.
I've heard the hope thing, but found this interesting:
"3 SECONDS without hope
Most individuals freeze in an emergency. In the immediate confusion and chaos, the human brain tries to draw upon some familiar experience for a plan of action. Finding none, we become immobile. You have three seconds to decide that you have hope and move forward. Statistics show that in a plane crash, you have 90 seconds to exit the wreckage. Three seconds without hope can make the difference between whether or not you have time to clear the area.
Survival depends upon your ability to shake yourself out of the stupor of disbelief and hopelessness.
Walter B. Cannon studied the case histories of sudden, unexplained deaths from around the world. In 1942, he published his theory that the brain unleashes stress hormones that can cause fatal heart arrhythmias in individuals that have given up all hope of escape -- they are literally scared to death. Use fear to spur yourself towards life-saving action. Determine to grasp onto hope and make a plan to live."06/01/2017 #11 Renée 🐝 CormierGreat way to get things accomplished. I always make task lists for myself to stay focused, but what you and the author of the book say are true. There are many things we can do in threes that could make a big difference in our day. Thank 3 people, be grateful for 3 things, reach out to 3 new business prospects, give three hugs, kiss three people, go out of your way to help 3 people, read and comment on three blogs... the list is endless!

Comments03/01/2017 #23 Preston 🐝 Vander VenGreat Read. I also agree with what you wrote. I feel that having New Year Resolutions give people a greater excuse to quit before they even start.
I recently read on another post that over 80% of everyone with these goals we quit before these next three week are up. On the same article in was a comic. The man was talking to another and it was January 2. He said, "Well, I least I tried. I guess I'll try again next year."
The comic show the mindset of the majority of people and their goals. The already believe they are going to failure, so they quit the moment it gets hard. Instead of getting back up, they put it off til the next year. It becomes a never ending cycle.02/01/2017 #20 Sarah ElkinsNice job, Robin, and thanks to @Alan Culler for tagging me!

It is unconditional. You know they mean it. You know they'd protect you and defend you and always be your friend. THAT's vibrational!
"The very instant you wake up in the morning", of course, makes me think of the Miracle Morning (https://www.bebee.com/group/themiraclemorning).
"With love, the more you give, the more you have to give. It is like a vessel that replenishes itself ten-fold whenever you draw from it." BRILLIANT and brightly true!
"Love yourself unconditionally. We humans spend our lives accumulating baggage and condemning ourselves for making mistakes. Stop doing that. Consider that we are all on a journey."

Comments09/12/2016 #6 Renée 🐝 Cormier#5 Thanks, @Jared 🐝 Wiese. I recycled this post from a blog I wrote several years ago. I remember your post about the questions. It was very good. I like the concept of asking empowering questions versus dis-empowering questions. When your head is in a funk, you will tend to ask yourself dis-empowering questions. Re-framing the way to ask questions will help you change your thinking about a lot of things. I appreciate your sharing and commenting. Thanks again.09/12/2016 #5 Jared 🐝 WieseWow, Renee, have you sparked something in me today. THANK YOU! What a great, motivating article!!
Right away, on the questions topic, a thought popped into my head: "Quality questions create a quality life."
As I was reading it, I kept thinking more - MAN! I need to write about this! Then I remembered I had!...
"Tony Robbins also said:
Quality questions create a quality life. They direct our mental focus and therefore determine how we think and feel.
The difference in the quality of people’s lives often comes down to the difference in the questions they consistently ask themselves. If you ask a disempowering question (i.e. “Why does this always happen to me?”), your mental computer will look for an answer, even if it has to make something up! It might come up with “Because you’re stupid” or “Because you don’t deserve to do well anyway.”
On the flip side, if you ask an empowering question, such as “How can I take this experience and use it to contribute to others?” your brain will look for answers to this question and often come up with an answer that not only makes you feel better, but that can help others as well.
The key is to develop a pattern of questions that empower you."
"Whatever it Takes"

Something I realized way back thing is I was asking these same questions but in a different order. I would ask “Who can help me?” before I asked “What am I going to do today to bring me closer to my goal?”. I didn't realize I wasn't even taking action yet. It is one of the three books I suggest everyone reads.

Comments08/12/2016 #3 Jared 🐝 WieseCory, love your post!
"There are countless examples in history of where people ignored the advice of others and chose instead to place the power within themselves."
To me, it's like Hal Elrod says, be grateful for the good AND the bad... Take responsibility for everything and every circumstance in your life. Then, like Stephen Covey wrote, we become proactive and can focus on our Circle of Influence - which includes us!
CC: @Harvey Lloyd08/12/2016 #1 Zacharias 🐝 VoulgarisThank you for sharing this inspiring and empowering message. We often allow ourselves to forget that the source of our power comes from how we handle ourselves, esp. our reactions, in adverse circumstances. Of course we can always gain some power by exercising control over others but this is as transient as the contentment that stems from savoring good weather.

Comments19/12/2016 #6 Emily🐝 BeeAmazing, awesome, kick butt! I was looking for information online about the MM, and all I had to do was come to beBee. This is super informative because I'm considering doing it. My only issue is my husband who is a light sleeper. He stays up way too late at night, every night, and therefore is super grump if he's awoken. Any suggestions? He'll think I am bat crazy to get up at 6am, let alone 5am!30/11/2016 #1 Jared 🐝 WieseHal Elrod's book is a MUST READ!! I agree, the night-before prep is key and you CAN wake without an alarm if you are mentally set for it!

I have listened to as many podcasts or videos as I can on TMM. In the book (Chapter 7) and in these videos, he found that you can do the 6 SAVERS in 6 minutes for those days when you are really busy - and still get close to 75% of the value! I came up with a process to incorporate TMM with the Five Minute Journal. I call it Six Minute Scribing:
You can search twitter for #SixMinuteScribing.
I am shooting for the books, "15 minutes at a time” habit too.
