Morning Person 2016 – Lesson 2

Lesson 2: Dismantle Your Roadblocks

Moving forward, what are the potential roadblocks ahead that you see? What are the barriers in your path that might prevent you from making lasting change? Possible roadblocks could be:

  • psychological – for example, a tendency to self-sabotage.
  • societal – peers, colleagues or other people you surround yourself with
  • physical – perhaps setting too big of a goal too soon

Have a mindset for success and don’t entertain thoughts that say otherwise. Take your roadblocks and flip them on their heads:

  • Stay focused on your vision. You feel it inside, you know there’s so much more to you. That vision for your life – it’s your motivation, it’s why you get out of bed in the morning.
  • Believe in yourself. Tap into that potential inside of you and trust that you have the ability, the skill and the mindset to do this.
  • Be stubborn. Raise your standards for a good life and don’t settle for less. Every day, in every way commit to your vision.

Remember, every little step counts, build up that momentum!

Think Small. In the excitement of starting something new, it’s easy to think about big and bold actions we can take. Instead, try making your action smaller. Let’s say your intention is to go to the gym for an hour each morning. Think small instead. Consider doing just 10 minutes of exercise when you wake up to start. Suddenly you get the sense of accomplishment that comes from success.

Start From Success. Let’s say your intention is to have breakfast ready for the family each morning. If you were already successful, you might have prepped the ingredients the night before. Suddenly you have a new tactic to save time and follow-through on your goals.

What’s ONE step that you can take today to overcome a roadblock in your path to becoming a morning person?

This assignment is from “Becoming a Morning Person” by Little Green Dot

So my statement of intention that I came up with on Monday was “I am becoming a Morning Person so I can get out the door by 7:20am.”

My biggest self-sabotage is the snooze button. omg I love my snooze button. I abuse the poor thing, too. I think I already have my one small step listed in my FlyLady Morning Routine: Get out of bed by 6:00am. To break that down into something a bit more manageable…rather than attempting to get up as soon as my alarm goes off at 6:00, I’m going to move my first alarm back to 5:30. That way I can hit snooze a few times, and still wake up earlier. :)
