it was relayed to me that W Clement Stone, back when he sold insurnce door to door, did this :
In the AM he would prospect, and in the afternoon he would nap with his mind set on making it a 2nd day in the afternoon (esp. good if the AM went poorly)
what I do is go to sleep with something in mind so I wake up refreshed, energized, and ready to tackle what I'm focused on.
1. start with the breath (25 deep breaths) letting go of the Am.
2. what specific choice/goal/challenge/etc.., do I want to focus on when I wake?
3. upon waking up you will instantly (with practice) wake, to what your focused on.
W. Clement Stone once stated, "Regardless of what you are or what you have been, you can still become what you may want to be."
W. Clement Stone founded a multibillion-dollar insurance empire with $100 and sought to buck up the world with the idea that anyone might do the same-all they need is "positive mental attitude.
Worked with Napoleon Hill
One of his great successes was the famed Og Mandino, an alcoholic at the time whom Stone took under his wing. The relationship engendered a new life for Mandino who became the publisher of Success Magazine at the time.
