Dwayne Johnson, the real life Hercules of Hollywood shared a special message with his fans on his 44th birthday.
On his birthday, The Rock uploaded this picture on his Instagram page while sharing with the world why we wakes up at 4 AM everyday!
No magic formula or secret to success. I'm up at 4am daily and puttin' in the hard work that I already know my competition is not willin' to do. If they're willin' to get up at 4, then you bet your ass I'm gettin' up at 3. And if they're willin' to get up at 3am, then well… I'll be gettin' up at 2:59 cause that's just bullshit. I don't pretend to do it. I do it. Daily. It's my anchor and will always be my edge over my competition. You don't have to wake up at the ass crack of 4am dawn to find your anchor. Whatever it is that gives you "your edge" over everyone around you – then that's what you do. You find it, you apply it and you protect it. Whether it's your co-workers, teammates, classmates or business associates.. the #AnchorPhilosophy applies to every facet of our lives. #FindYourAnchor #CreateYourEdge #ProtectThemBoth #AndPlsDontGetUpAt4amCauseItAintPretty;)
