One of the things I’ve applied and believe is going to give me more success than anything else is a routine – a morning ritual.
When you become more successful, you obviously earn more but you have to deal with more responsibility. You have to deal with more stress, obstacles and people.
Think about corporate – when you start you’re at the bottom and not required to bring in new business. You’re just required to do what you’re told by your manager. As you get into a managerial role you have to manage the performance of other people. In a director role, you have to find or buy new business.
Your ability to deal with more responsibility, stress, obstacles and more pressure will influence your income ability. That’s because your income zone is directly related to your stress zone.
That’s why I believe in the morning ritual. It’s that 30, 60 or 90 minutes a morning when you just focus on your own self. You focus on your emotional and mental fortitude so that you can take on the day.
Guys like Richard Branson, Tony Robbins and other highly successful people have a morning routine.
I’m reading a book right now called Titans Toolset by Timothy Ferris where he interviewed 300 highly successful people to find out what they do every day. What are their daily disciplines?
That book inspired me to ask myself, what are my daily disciplines?
Here are 3 routines for you to try today that can change your life:
- Calm your mind every morning with techniques like meditation or visualization.
- Enrich your mind with positivity because you’re going to face a lot of negativity during the day, especially as you become more successful. I like to wake up with positive YouTube videos and reading 15-20minutes before sleeping and when I wake up.
- Enrich your body. Our mind, body and soul are connected. If your mind is in a bad space you need to go do some physical exercise. It’ll get your blood pumping and build your confidence.
Keep on changing the game.
