How to get your Mind OVER Mattress and Wake Up Early!

The average person wakes up at 7am so if you get up at 6am you are up before 80% of the population, if you are up at 5am you have 2 extra hours a day to get ahead of the competition. That’s 14 hours extra a week. In the morning you are far more productive because your brain waves are slower to start and your stress hormones are at their lowest and there is just less distraction from the outside world.

No 1: Have a big why. 80% of success is why and 20% is how. If you have a big enough why about anything you brain finds the resources to do it. I think your motivation for waking up early is very important. Motivation comes from the word motive. So what is your motive for waking up early? You have to get your mind over mattress. A why could be because you want to be the biggest in your field you want to get ahead of the rest of your competition or you want to help the most people.

No 2: Is commitment! You must make your mind up about it. It’s not I’ll try to wake up early , its I will wake up at this time. That means putting your phone in another room and deciding to wake up at that time. There is no debate in your mind about it. It’s as if you had to catch the most important flight of your life.

No 3: Use the 5,4,3,2,1 strategy and don’t think. What this does is it stops your brain from asking the question do I feel like getting up? To ‘I am getting up.’ Taking out this thinking time causes you to act because you know on the count of one you must get up. That takes you from the basal ganglia which is the habit part of your mind running your behaviours to the prefrontal cortex which is the decision making part of the brain. That means NO snooze button.

No 4: Move your body immediately! I studied successful people and saw they all moved the body immediately after waking up. Tony robbins jumps in a cryotherapy chamber or takes a cold shower then jumps in a hot tub , Richard branson goes surfing, Arnold Schwarzenger goes to the gym. Many of you are still asleep many you wake up that’s why people go back to bed.

No 5: Make it your identity! Call yourself a 5amer or a 6amer or an early morning riser. That will cause you to stay consistent.

No 6: Get a good nights sleep! No technology for 30 mins before bed at least is ideal. This allows Melontin to be released so you can sleep easy.

And remember every night Plan for the following day, that will make it easier for your brain to relax!

How to SQUASH Procrastination and Hesitation (Note: This will 10X your productivity and results)

One of the biggest things that hold people back from success is waiting to feel like taking action before you actually take it. So many are waiting to feel 'ready' or feel motivated or feel confident or feel courageous before they act and the truth is that feeling may never come. Our thoughts can be the biggest dream killers or dream builders and the second you hesitate from what you know you should do your brain is actually designed to magnify that feeling and stop you from doing it the longer you hesitate. This is called the 'spotlight' effect.The longer you wait to take action the more that feeling of hesitation gets magnified and the harder it is to take action. So if you are waiting to feel 'ready' or confident before you do that facebook live or do that presentation or whatever it is outside of your comfort zone you are simply sabotaging yourself.

So .... how do you get out of this?

I talked about it this week in my facebook live and what you want to do is implement what is called the '5 Second Rule'. This was developed by a lady called Mel Robbins where she though instead of just trying to get herself to feel motivated to get out of bed she simple gave herself a 5 second countdown and just jumped out of bed. Not only was it used for this but it was also used for anything you procrastinate on and for anything you know you should do but you dont feel like doing. I have already used it this week and have had an amazing week giving myself a 5 second countdown on anything I know I should do and then act.

I highly recommend this week whenever you notice yourself procrastinating or hesitating on what you know you should do just count backwards 5,4,3,2,1 and then do whatever you said you would. This will wake up your prefrontal cortex and cause you to act. This is the part of your brain where you decision making takes place and all your power is while the basal ganglia which is the part of your brain that maintains your habits is designed to just maintain the habits you already have. So there you go!

Use that 5 second rule and watch you world transform!!

The Biggest Learning I have got this week!!

I have been a hunter for human excellence in order to find out what makes people succeed and what makes people struggle. I had a big learning last week in that I had realised that the only difference between those that succeed and those that struggle really comes down to their standards. It’s easy to fall into the trap of the ‘poor me’ syndrome or ‘why is life so hard’ or ‘why don’t other people get it’. The only thing is if we do that we sabotage our success. If you are not getting the results you want right now the universe is telling you one thing, and that is Raise Your Standards! NOTE: DO NOT do the same as last week and expect a different result. Thats insanity according to our friend Einstein. 

The biggest learning I got is that no matter what results you are getting right now, you want to do two things this week:

1. Trust The Process- this means that No Matter what results you are getting back you must continue to stick to the process that you know will get you the results. Never stop, never quit, never slow down and never tell yourself a story that you can’t. It is a must that you stick to the actions that you know will eventually produce the results NO MATTER what happens on the outside world. As long as you know what actions they are and you stick to them, then you are going to get to where you want to be! 
 "The universe opens the door to the commited"

2. Stay in absolute certainty- No matter how many people tell you ‘no’ or how many             people don’t respond to you, its important that you stay in absolute certainty. The                   reason is if you stay in certainty that energy is sent out into the universe and you will             attract people , events and opportunities that are a vibrational match for the result you           want. Certainty will also cause you to execute on all that you want. When you couple             certainty with massive action, you achieve great results! Leaders bring                                   certainty to an environment when there isn’t any!

How do I improve the relationship with myself?

I was thinking today, ‘what has the greatest impact on the quality of your life?’

Then I started to think, ‘is it your health? is it the amount of money you make? is it how much success you have? is it who you are in a relationship with?’

And then the answer came to me.

It is the relationship you have with yourself. You could have all the money in the world, you could have all the success in the world, you could have your dream body or even your dream partner but ultimately what has the greatest impact on the quality of your life is the quality of your relationship with yourself.

I then asked myself these questions:
‘How could I improve the quality of relationship with myself?’
‘How happy am I with the relationship I have with myself on a scale of 0-10?’
‘What would it take for me to be a 10?’

For you to be a 10 I can say you have to let go of any limiting or negative thoughts you have about yourself that cause you to feel bad.

Once you’ve discovered the limiting or negative thoughts that pop up in your mind I recommend you simply……let them go.

As Wayne Dyer says… ‘have a mind that is open to everything, and attached to nothing.’

I recommend you make two empowering decisions today that would cause you to feel great about yourself!

This is doing what I call, thinking outside the box!

How you feel in any moment in time is a decision, and only you have the power to make that decision in terms of how you feel.

Maybe you could make the decision that no matter what happens this week, you’re going to be happy no matter what. Or maybe it’s I decide to love myself no matter what, or I decide to accept myself. Another decision this week could be not one negative thought is allowed in your mind. A great exercise to do is the second you notice the negative thought come up, you say to yourself ‘erase! what I really mean is…. (and then tell yourself your new truth).’ I can tell you this really works!

Your self esteem is directly related to how much money you make by the way. So the higher your self esteem is, the greater the amount of money you make. Also the higher yourself esteem, the more you are going to enjoy your life. Life is always supporting your return to love. Always.

I want to wish you an outstanding week, treat yourself how you would want others to treat you and be kind to yourself and others.

P.S If you are interested in letting go of any limiting beliefs from your mind or cultivating self love we have super exercises for this in our online course. It is still at 50% off, click here: http://lukehawkinscoaching.com/offer

Happy Easter… Love and Light from me,

Appreciating The Beauty Of Cracks

Perfectionism is wanting things to be perfect before you take action.

This topic is important because there is a big cost to not taking action for the price of waiting for things to be perfect. The only problem with waiting for things to be perfect is that no matter what you do anyway, it can always be improved. If youre waiting for things to be perfect for example the book you’re writing to be perfect the facebook live your planning to do to be perfect, the coaching session you plan to do to be perfect or the sales call you know you want to make to be perfect or your presentation or public talk to be perfect, you could be waiting for a very long time and even forever. And delay or waiting will kill your dream and it will destroy your ability to help people.

For some people perfectionism is something that pops up every now and then for them and they don’t use it as a road block to taking action so they make progress relatively fast. This is in comparison to the compulsive or chronic perfectionist who plans and plans and plans, and then is planning to plan, but never acts because they are still perfecting.

Which person do you think is going to make progress the fastest?

Regardless of where you are on the scale of perfectionism, 0 being not at all and 10 being the compulsive chronic perfectionist if you want freedom from perfectionism, we have to make the long journey from, what will people think? To I am enough! You have to claim the truth of who you are and know who you are is separate to what you do and its separate to what you have. You also have to be willing to give yourself a break and appreciate the beauty of the cracks or imperfections. It’s a decision to to be kind to yourself and talk to yourself in the same way you’d talk to someone you care about.

You want to own the parts of yourself that don’t fit in with who or what you think youre supposed to be. You must give up striving for other peoples approval of your worthiness.

Don’t let perfect be the enemy of done. A 20 minute walk done is better than a 10 km walk that you don’t do. The imperfect book that gets published is better than the perfect book that never leaves your computer. The sales call that you make is better than the sales call you don’t make.

Perfectionism is the enemy of done.

Its only done that leads to progress and that leads to growth. And ultimately later it will only lead to success.

The best quote that I love about perfectionism is ‘there is a crack in everything that’s how the light gets in.’ 

Give up perfectionism and get it done! You'll be glad you did!

The 5 Steps To Create The Success That You Want Now

You have heard before by the wise Aristotle that excellence itself is not an act, but a habit. Its your daily habits that are controlling your destiny right now. We all have 24 hours in a day. The question is, How do we use it? The ability to maximise your time and make every minute count is so important in business. Whether you are Richard Branson, Warren Buffet or any person working in a 9-5 Job it is important to use these 5 steps to get from where you are, to where you want to be!
1. Know your Purpose/Goal. Your purpose is not something that stumbles across you, nor it is something you find. Your purpose is something you decide upon. Everything in life has a purpose and if you are going to have the level of success you deserve then you must know clearly what that it. This is the internal compass that is going to drive all of your decisions. So whenever you are uncertain about something, or whenever you dont know what to do, it is your purpose that will guide you forward. It will also provide you with massive motivation provided it is something you feel deeply about and strongly believe in. Then you must also know specifically the goal you are wanting to achieve. This must be something you revisit often and are fully conscious of at all times!I highly recommend you read your goals both in the morning and at night!
2. Get super jacked motivated- It is extremely important you feel motivated daily. It is your responsibility to motivate yourself, no one elses. If you are not super motivated you wont take all the actions necessary to succeed. To motivate yourself I recommend you wake up with gratitude each morning, read your goals, connect to your purpose, listen to some personal development and then workout each day, preferably in the morning is best. When you break through physical barriers you also break through mental barriers as well!
3. Remove blocks- this is essential if you are to succeed at the level and rate you deserve. Blocks include fears, limiting beliefs, negative emotions from the past and any inner conflicts you may be experiencing. Personally I have used hypnosis and NLP to clear these out for myself and it has changed my life. Life is a dance between what you fear most and what you desire most. So if you focus on what you desire then you'll dance the dance much better. Do what you fear and the fear will disappear!!
4. Add Skills - the less you learn the less you earn and the more you learn the more you earn. Warren Buffet was right when he said this. You must add skills if you are going to continually grow and improve. Skills can include those in sales, social media, speaking, communicating, influencing etc. You can never have enough skills. Skills make the difference between someone who is average and someone who is a master. Repetition is the mother of skill. So the more you repeat it, the more skillful you become. Bruce Lee said I fear not the man who has practiced 10000 different kicks, but the man who has practiced the same kick 10000 times!
5. Action or commitment - those that succeed that fastest simply take the most action. If you're interested you'll do whats convenient, if you're committed you'll do whatever it takes. So go out there and make mistakes. The more mistakes you make, the more you will learn, and the more you learn the more you will grow! Progress = Happiness! You must know that any action is better than inaction!! 
Greatness Is You!

The Power Of A True Decision

Have different thoughts this week and you will produce different feelings this week. have different feelings this week and you will produce different behaviours. which will equal different results. crazy.

***If you do not CHANGE NOW you are going to wake up where you are headed.***
Most people have a life they dont want because they have been focusing on what they DONT want. if you focus on what you dont want long enough you you are actually guaranteed to create it. if you focus on what you do want and take massive consistent fearless action then you will actually create what you want. its no big secret. its just a law of the universe that whatever you focus on expands in your life.

If you make a decision on something and change your mind you are saying to the universe not only a) Dont bring me what i want but also b) you are giving an imbedded command to your unconscious mind to associate pain to what you want in your life (which means you'll sabotage yourself) and...... you are telling your unconscious mind that you cant have what you want. this is the most destructive thing you can do.

Make different decisions this week and you will produce different actions. if you produce different actions you will produce different results. If your decisions are toward what you want and if you take massive consistent action you WILL actually set a new standard for yourself and change your life, permanently. 

If you want to lead your own life and actually be a leader for others then make a decision and commit to it!! That means go all chips in, leave no stone unturned and decide to act upon what is going to be your new chosen direction. You will create a new destiny and people will also follow you because you are certain in your direction.

Nelson Mandela didnt say I have a dreammm... and then go "wait no I dont." Muhammad Ali didnt step into the ring and say "actually can I just jump out now." Oprah Winfrey doesnt go on air and say to the audience go home everyone I've changed my mind. 

The word decision comes from the latin, incision. Which means to cut off from. a true decision is where you cut off from any other possibility EXCEPT for the thing you are committed to.
Your life is where it is right now because of the sum total of your conscious and unconscious decisions up until now. It is important for your future to ask yourself these questions.....
1) What is my intention in this life?
2) What do I really want?
3) Where do I really want to be in 5 years,. 10 years and 20 years time?
4) What do I have to believe to get there?
5) what do I have to do consistently day in and day out to get there?
6) how will i celebrate as I achieve greater success?

For things to change you have to change. For things to get better you have to get better. May you create the life of your dreams!

To your success and to your greatness...

Love and Light, Luke
