The Morning Run

The Morning Run

Everyone knows that we should rise early in the morning and go for a run. Why don’t we do that?

To start a day off right and be more productive, to have long term health and wellness, we exercise early and first. Priorities. Urgent before optional. First things first—right?

Study those who are wise, happy, and successful in life. You’ll find that they’ve decided what’s important, attacked those tasks first, and cut out everything that doesn’t matter.

Prayer is another example. What could be more critical? It’s the spiritual version of a nice morning run. Stretch your prayer muscles.

Start on your knees, asking God for guidance and protection. Meditate on his promises.

The road to life is a disciplined life; ignore correction and you’re lost for good. Proverbs 10:17 (The Message)

We must develop the discipline, stamina, and dogma to handle first things first. And finances are among the things of first importance in our lives. They require discipline and planning. That is how we end up on top!

Ask yourself:

  • Why don’t you do what you must and/or should?
  • List the top three obstacles in your way.
  • Examine your priorities and rearrange them to be a better you. Write down what you will do differently.
