There are two words that, when used together, immediately impact the person they are targeted to. I am referring to the simple command…WAKE UP!
You’ve probably experienced the power of these words in two ways. If you needed to wake someone from sleep or perhaps needed to motivate someone for an attitude adjustment, you commanded them to WAKE UP! You’ve also most likely been the person who was sleeping or needed the motivation. In that case, when someone commanded you to WAKE UP!, it most likely got you moving in some way.
In addition to trying to wake someone or being awoken yourself, chances are you may have used this command for yourself. Have you ever told yourself to WAKE UP? If you are like me you probably have. A few days ago I discovered the true power this statement could have in motivating myself. I was going through a bit of an un-energetic funk and wasn’t succeeding with certain tasks. Besides that I was just sluggish and unmotivated. Finally, I became so frustrated that I simply shouted to myself (mentally because I was in public) WAKE UP! I shouted it again. And again. Before long, I felt a surge of energy going through me. The mediocrity I was experiencing was no longer good enough as I awoke myself to my true potential to succeed. All sluggishness disappeared, and I put my full energy into the task. Things went much better from there.
This experience helped me realize I could use this short and powerful affirmation at any time. I began using it even when I wasn’t struggling, and I have been since. I find it especially empowering. Just as the wake-up command can get you moving quickly out of a deep sleep, it can also get you moving with a surge of energy in your daily life.
I encourage you to try this, especially if you are lacking energy or motivation. If you are alone you can shout it out. If not, you can do it in your head. Either way, affirming that you WAKE UP! can significantly increase your energy and power. It may seem weird to do, but if you don’t believe me I suggest you try it. You will be surprised by the results. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
