Success is not just waking up, it’s getting up!

The difference between successful people and other people is the difference between getting up and waking up!

Waking up is easy. We all wake up! But as the nights close in and the the cold mornings become a daily reality, getting up is not so easy.

It’s all too easy to hit snooze one more time. To pull the duvet tighter under the chin, forget about the day ahead and drift off to dream again.

Some people approach their entire life that way. Permanently under the covers! But the longer you stay under the covers the less appealing the prospect of actually getting up can seem.

The successful life involved both waking up AND getting up. Putting skin in the game. Risking failure, failing, waking up and getting up.

I think Rudyard Kipling said it best in my favourite poem ‘IF’.

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

Wake up! Get up! Live to the full. Be a success.
