Chapter 4: Why did you wake up this morning?
“Do you wake up every day because you really want to? Or is it because, for one reason or another, you have to?”
Most people, if they had a choice, would prefer to push the snooze button and sleep longer. This is no surprise. However, by simply changing your approach to how you wake up every morning, you will change your life. This is how self-made millionaires succeed.
How much sleep do we really need? The answer is not clear because it depends on the person. However, there is an idea, that has been tested by the Miracle Morning followers, that you only need as much sleep as you believe you need. This means that if you usually sleep eight hours, you can change it to seven hours if you start believing that seven hours is all the sleep you really need. If you keep telling yourself, before falling asleep, that after seven hours of sleep you will feel energized, guess what’s going to happen?
