I lay in bed at 04:30 this morning, after getting up for a short while, and was thinking about sleeping in until 06:30.
Robin Sharma‘s recent email kept beating in my head so I had no option but to get back out of bed and head to the harbour and then beach to watch the sunrise.
I didn’t want to “lose” my membership in the 5 am Club!
“The moment you think you’re amazing is the moment you lose the very mentality (and spirit) that made you amazing. On the arrival of uncommon success, the human tendency is:
1. For humility to become eroded and arrogance to creep in
2. To lose the fire that got you into The 5 am Club, kept you pushing to be the best & moved you to persist against all that fear could put in your way
3. To rest on your laurels and fall into the seduction of thinking that what made you successful will keep you successful
And so, as you navigate your rise to world-class, avoid “the catastrophe of success”. Own your Craft. Live your Genius. Lift our World” ~ Robin Sharma
