Even if only once you experienced how you win and own the day when you got up early, smelled the fresh morning air walking outside for a few minutes, returned and started your day with the most important task first, even if that had only happened once, you will remember this is your way to go because when you become in charge and take responsibility for your life after your early rise, new comrades will join your journey: Say „hi“ to achievement, fulfillment, and happiness. They stay and leave. But if you continuously show up, they will come back and stay until they leave again. Over time, the more experienced you get with showing up every day, the cycles of leave-stay-return will get smaller, almost but never permanent.
