My alarm was set for 3:45am this morning, and I woke up at 1:15am, too excited for the day to go back to sleep. Today I leave for San Diego for a mentorship program with personal training guru Todd Durkin, a trip that I have been looking forward to for months.
There is something about laying wide-awake in bed with the excitement of a child on Christmas eve that refreshes the soul. Once the clock finally hit 3:30am, I bounced out of bed excitedly and went about my merry way in my preparations for the airport.
The key to happiness is excitement for the future. Get excited about your life and make things happen. If you can’t imagine yourself ever waking up at 3:00AM from excitement over something, then I recommend that you start finding the things in life that will make you feel something. There is nothing more satisfying about life than waking up out of excitement to start living more.
