Hi again, and welcome back. So we’ll do a quick recap of yesterday, we’re talking about clarity of mind. Taking time out just to process your thoughts, just to think, just to make good decisions and if you do that, then the answer will always walk through the door the next day, the right answer, the one that you’re comfortable with, the one that you don’t have to worry about. So I hope you put that in place last night and from today, make sure you are getting that time.
So today is about why waking up in a morning is the most important thing. So again, six months ago … I’m going to use an example, I started … no, not six months ago, 18 months ago, I started the job in London and at first, it started going really well yeah, because I was going the gym every day, half five, I was feeling pretty good and stuff and then as I said, all the stress started to build up and those 45 people that I employed, some of those I’ve worked with before, so we were all staying in hotels and things.
So after a while, everyone was like … you’re in London, go for a pint, “Yeah, let’s go for a pint.” You start work at half seven, finish at half seven. So what happened was, I just ended up going drinking every night, eating three course meals every day and I got fat as a house.
The train journey … I’m like six foot tall so I was cramped within the seats on the way down here, so by the time I got there, my knee was hurting me, my Achilles tendon was hurting me, I was limping around, I was pulling my trousers up all the time because I’d gotten so chubby and stuff.
It wasn’t good. I remember I used to go back the hotel, I used to look in the mirror, I’d look at my belly and I’d think, “Oh my God, what have I done to myself? What have I done to myself? This has got to change, man.” That’s where this comes from because now, in the past six months, I’ve lost five stone. Under here, I’m pretty ripped by the way, I’m about 13 stone, or I was pretty ripped until I did this, so it’s put me off exercise for a little bit until I can work out how to do one arm stuff anyway and at least I’ll have this side still in touch anyway.
No, the important thing is, when you get up and look in the mirror in the morning, you look at yourself and you go, “Man, I look good dude.” You have a shave, you wash yourself up, you make yourself feel good, you jump out of bed, stick some nice music on and I know it’s hard when you got kids running around you but when your kids come in your room go, “Good morning,” and just cheer yourself up because a good start to the day is the best start ever.
If your partner is difficult and walking around going, “What you so happy about eh? What’s making you so happy?” But you have to ignore that, you have to ignore that, that’s not you. That is not you. But if you wake up in the morning and go, “Oh no, I don’t want to go to work, look at me man, I’ve got more gray hair, look at my belly, look at me, I’m not happy. God, I need some new clothes, I look awful, my shoes are knackered.” How do you think you’re going to feel when you walk out the door? You’re going to feel crap, aren’t you? You’re going to feel crap.
You know what, right? You can buy a pair of trousers, you can buy a shirt, blouse, shoes or whatever for five quid, 10 quid from Matalan and Primark and all that stuff nowadays so you don’t have to wear expensive clothes, but just make yourself look good. Get up in the morning, make yourself look good. If you haven’t had a haircut for a while, go get a haircut. Do anything to make yourself feel good because when you jump out of bed, you want to be ready for the world, you want to be smiling. You want to walk out the door and go, “Look at me dude, I look great.” Know what I mean?
It’s like, even for work, I’m the only person that wears a tie because everyone else likes the open collar. I wear a tie because it makes me feel good. Makes me feel important, it makes me feel like I’m going to do an important job and whether you like it or not, people respect you more because they think, “Hey, he’s got a tie on dude, he must be really important.” Yeah, so they treat you differently but when you look after your appearance, when you look after yourself, when you feel good about yourself, then you can walk out the door with a smile, you can walk out the door with your head held high.
Yeah, some days we have bad days, but the majority of the time just wake up with a smile. Stick your best songs on, dance around the room, do whatever, give your kids a hug, give your wife a hug, give your girlfriend a hug, your husband, whatever, whoever it is. Just wake up and feel good and go, “Today is going to be a great day.”
So do anything you can to make that happen, just try it. Even if you don’t feel like it when you wake up in the morning, or even this morning if you’re watching this video now, just go, “Damn, I’m going to make myself feel good man. Do my hair differently, put a bit of gel in it, shave beard.” Do whatever but make yourself feel good because it’s the most important start of the day. Really important lesson, always make yourself feel great before you walk out the door, okay?
Next lesson is going to be smiling and being nice to everyone. So I’ll see you in the next video. Remember in the morning, wake up, jump around the bedroom, naked if you want, dance around, do whatever, look in the mirror, look cool.
If you’re worried about your weight, if you’re worried about money, all of that stuff, we’ll address those things in later videos. So don’t worry about all that, okay? I transformed myself in six months, you can transform yourself in less than six months so it’s all going to be good. Think about it, make yourself feel good, be good every day. See you tomorrow.
