Recently I read Zig Ziglar’s book, See You at the Top. In it, I noticed that over and over again he referred to our alarm clocks as opportunity clocks. I loved that! Most people dread the thought of hearing their alarm clock go off! Zig recognizes that it’s how you view your “alarm” clock that makes the difference.
If you know me, you know I’m a huge morning person. In fact, I was asked today how I can get up at 5 a.m. everyday. To be honest with you, it’s my view of waking up at 5 a.m. that wakes me up, not my personal desire.
Every night when I go to bed, it’s like Christmas Eve. Seriously! I am that excited to wake up the every morning! Why? Because everyday I wake up I have the opportunity to go after the life that God has planned for me.
Everyday I have the opportunity to:
- Add value to peoples lives
- Meet people I’ve never met before!
- Work out
- Read a good book
- Spend time with the people I love
- Work toward my dreams!
The list of opportunities is endless! What if you woke up everyday looking forward to the opportunities that lay before you instead of sleeping for a few more hours!
Never again set your “alarm clock”, instead, set your “opportunity clock. That small change in your thinking could revolutionize your life!
