How to embrace the beginning of your day

By Michael E. Gerber

When you start your day and how you start your day may not seem important to you, but they do influence the shape your day is going to take. Of course, starting early is always best. But, for now, I’m going to be more interested in how to start a day.

Take a minute with me.

Think for a moment about your role as an entrepreneur. Think about that for a moment because the word is a significant one. It begins with ‘entre,’ or ‘enter’, or ‘at the beginning’, or ‘welcome’. An entrepreneur is at the beginning of something, at the entrance to something, celebrating, if you will, the invitation at the front door.

At the front door of what, you might ask?

At the front door of life, of some venture.

At the front door of the day, the minute, the next event.

At the beginning of creation and at the front door of who-knows-what-is-coming-up-next. That is why starting your day is such a significant moment in your life. Because you will never start this very day again. Never. You will never be welcomed by life into this very day, this very moment, this very second, ever again.

To experience that deeply is no little thing. To truly experience what I just said is more awesome than you can possibly appreciate right now, at this moment, as I invite you to enter this unique state of mind.

That’s why I say that starting your day in a very intentional way is the most important commitment you can possibly make. Because your day is shaped by it. If you are present when you awake, if you take one intentional moment when you awake and say, ‘I am.’ Do that, slowly… ‘I am.’

If you feel that, then, you are ready to continue that with ‘I am here.’

Say it to yourself, right now: ‘I am here.’ Say it again.

And now, having said, ‘I am here,’ please say, ‘I am here to create.’ Say it again: ‘I am here to create.’

Are you here for anything other than that? Can you imagine what the impact of knowing that, awakening that, inspiring that, believing that would have on the beginning and entirety of your day?
