How To…Wake-Up On A Mission (& love it)

Wake-Up With Determination

“You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” George Horace Lorimer.

Lorimer’s formula can be broken down so it is understood by everybody, because it was intended for self-management. His wonderful words of encouragement need to be implanted in your head if you have desires to reach your goals. George Lorimer’s motivating quote inspires us to take action in life from the start.

He did not want such words as “I’ll do it later” or “I’ll do it tomorrow”. Instead, his words inspire;

  1. Courage
  2. Determination
  3. Persistence
  4. Action

We each try to do better, or achieve certain goals in our lives, regardless of our personal profile or financial status. If you take some action by trying to do something to change your life, you will be doing what most people are afraid of.

Change is scary, obviously, because it may complicate your life, or you may have seen it complicate someone’s else life.

George was right in how his words have become an important pillar for motivation in the field of Health & Wellness Coaching. If I myself did not wake-up with determination, I would not be going to bed satisfied. But because I applied George’s principles in my life, I go to bed with satisfaction. I also try to wake-up every morning determined to do better than the day prior.


Trying to change direction in your life can be a challenging experience. Applying Mindfulness Techniques can certainly point you in the right direction. You can’t just make u-turns in life and expect everything to work out perfectly. Often times, by forcing change, one encounters challenge they never intended to face.  Ideally, prepare yourself from-the-start to initiate a change in mindset, and eventually a change in viewpoint about your life.

By going to bed satisfied, you’re taking the first step to choosing happiness the next day. Even if you didn’t reach your goals for the day, you’re one step closer to waking-up with goals in mind.

George’s quotes can assist you in your personal life, business and career. If you go to bed unsatisfied, you will have nothing to motivate you to start your day with determination in mind.
