The Difference Between Being Broke Versus Being Poor

“If people were meant to pop out of bed, we’d all sleep in toasters.”

Somewhere along the way, we were told that we had to wake up energetic, spunky, and gitty. That’s not real life.

You’re not always going to feel great when you wake up, and that’s 100% entirely acceptable.

I’m very skeptical of people who say they wake up feeling fabulous every day. It’s just not how the body works. There are days you feel great, and there are many days you don’t. That’s real life.

The trick is not to let the feeling become a state of mind. Take it as a temporary state that will disappear. It’s similar to the difference between being broke versus being poor. Being broke is a temporary situation while being poor is a state of mind. Broke could happen to us but being poor never should.

The best and quickest way I get out of my negative feelings is by using my “go-to” morning routines. I jump in the shower. Listen to my favorite music or podcast. Make two cups of coffee and I just sit there and wait. Eventually, my negative state of mind turns into a positive state of mind. I try my best not to leave the chair until that happens.

I do everything I can in the morning to replace my negative thoughts with positive ones. What I have found doing this for over ten years is that my consistent morning routine causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes.

It’s a catalyst that has produced extraordinary results in my life.
