Private lessons that leadership and elite performance expert Robin Sharma has been imparting to billionaires and celebrities have now found their way into his new book “The 5 AM Club”, which the globally renowned author of “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari”, says can change the life of its readers. Sharma, whose books have sold over 15 million copies and have been translated into at least 92 languages, spoke to IANS during his ongoing book tour in the country.
He said that the twilight period in the morning is of utmost “peace and tranquility”, and tranquility being a “luxury” in our times, should not be missed.
“People are very attracted to the idea of an hour for themselves before the day gets busy. It is almost like a retreat to the simpler times. I have been teaching the 5 AM club method for above 20 years. The book is not just about waking up at 5 a.m., but there is a specific morning routine—20: 20: 20—which I urge the readers to follow. I have been teaching that to my high-profile clients like billionaires, sports superstars and celebrities, CEOs. It has brought tremendous change in their lives,”Sharma told IANS in his characteristic inspirational tone.
He said that upon realising the “magic” that the 5 AM Formula had done for the successful people, he wrapped it around a story, like he did in “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari”, and published it in the form of a book.
He has divided the first hour of the day into three equal segments of 20 minutes each. The first sequence is for sweating—to do some physical activity. The second, he says, is for reflection, through prayer, meditation or writing a journal. And finally the last 20 minutes before the day gets busy, says Sharma, is for growing by reading, watching a useful video or listening to a podcast.
