Sleep is your friend, not an enemy of success.

It’s the #TeamNoSleep generation.
The #SleepisfortheWeak generation.
The #ISleep2HoursADay and still kill it generation.

However, please understand that what works for one person may not work for you. Maybe Diddy can sleep for two hours and stay up for 36 – that’s great. But, do you know what truly ensures success? It’s time management. Rather you sleep for three hours or 10, while you’re awake, managing your time is essential. Do you have a planner? Do you have weekly, monthly and yearly goals? Do you track your progress?

It’s about what you do with your time while you’re awake that gets you closer to your idea of success. Furthermore, do remember that success looks like what you want it to! Don’t go around chasing someone else’s success or someone else’s path to success. Your journey will look different. Your obstacles will be different and your sleep patterns will be different.

It’s imperative that you have a healthy relationship with sleep because it’s essential not optional – you need it. How much sleep you need is completely up to you but, it is a necessity. Don’t feel guilty for sleeping, for taking a mid-day nap, for sleeping eight hours or more.

To be at your best you need to be fully charged, does your iPhone battery run on hopes and dreams – no – and neither does your mind and body.

What does success like to you? If it looks like sleepless nights and relentless work ethic – fine but, eventually you will crash – it’s inevitable. Sleep is so good! Don’t let this generation fool you into thinking that sleep isn’t all that and then some because it is. If you want to learn new skills, make more money, enhance your capabilities, workout more, etc. you will need the proper energy to do so, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually and sleep helps out with each of those areas.

Say this to yourself, “I have a healthy relationship with sleep. I will sleep as much as I need to because sleep is good to me. I need it and I deserve it.”

You got this!
