how morning habits can make you more successful

We are living in one of the most prosperous and advanced times in human history. There are more opportunities and resources available to us then ever before. Still, most of us aren’t getting the results we want to have. We are not tapping into the unlimited potential that is within us. I’m not okay with this. Are you?

There is a huge potential gap in our lives that separates who we are from who we can be. We spend much of our time thinking what we should do to live the life we want, but then we don’t take those actions. In order to save your life from this unfulfilled potential and mediocrity, you must prioritize and dedicate a good amount of time each day for personal development.

Here are five daily practices that will develop different aspects of your life so that you can create the life you want:

1. Purposeful silence

Purposeful silence is one of the most significant tools for development for our noisy and fast lifestyles. Here “purposeful” means we are engaging in silence for a beneficial purpose. An hour of silence can teach you more than you can learn from just reading books. If you study the lives of the most successful people, you’ll find out most of them frequently engage in purposeful silence to achieve extraordinary results.

If you want to reduce your stress level and focus on the most important things in your life, you ought to start your morning with a period of purposeful silence. How do you do that? It completely depends on your choice. Some of my favourite activities to choose from and practise during my period of silence are meditation, prayer deep breathing and focusing on gratitude.

Some mornings I just do meditation and other mornings, I combine them to get the best benefit. These activities will help you relax your mind and body. But it is important that you leave your bed while performing these activities because there is greater chance of you falling back asleep if you stay in your bed.

 

2. Affirmations

I’m a huge fan of Mohammad Ali. He used to repeat the words over and over again ” I’m the greatest” and then he became the greatest. Affirmation is a very effective tool to become the person you need to be to achieve the things you want in your life. By repeating positive affirmations regularly you will be able to design and then develop the mindset to improve any area of your life.

How do affirmations work? When you repeat an affirmation over and over again, it leads to belief. Then the belief turns into deep conviction and you become the exact person you want to be. Write down some positive affirmations and repeat those every morning after waking up. Within a short time these affirmations will turn into deep conviction and you’ll see how quickly you are becoming the person you want to be.

“In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can” – Nikos Kazantzakis

3. Visualizations

Many highly successful people like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Will Smith, Oprah Winfrey and Tiger Woods have advocated the use of visualization to accomplish goals. Famous golfer Tiger Woods, is well known for using visualization to perfectly execute his golf swing on every hole.

Famous actor Will Smith said, he used to visualize his success and fame long before he became successful. So every morning after repeating your affirmations, visualize what you really want to be, Visualize that you’ve achieved your goal, how this achievement has changed your life, how happy you are after that achievement.

Try to feel, see, touch taste and smell every detail of your vision. To be more comfortable during the visualization period, you can play classical, instrumental or any kind of soothing music in the background. Sit up in a comfortable position wherever you prefer, take a couple of deep breathes and get ready to visualize.

 

4. Exercise

Daily morning exercises even for a few minutes will significantly boost your energy. Some of the benefits of morning exercises can be helping you sustain higher levels of energy throughout the day, enhance your mental clarity, help you think better and concentrate for a longer period of time.

How you use your exercise time is up to you. You can go to the gym, go for a long walk or run. But every morning try to dedicate some time for exercise. Don’t convince yourself by saying ” I don’t have time” or “I’m so tired” to ignore exercise.

 

5. Reading

Reading every morning will help you transform your life. It’s the method of acquiring the knowledge, strategies and ideas needed to radically accomplish your goals. Don’t Just read random books, read the books about the people who have already done what you want to do. Model these successful people’s strategies and techniques.

“If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads” – Vera Nazarian

There are thousands of high quality books on almost every topic. There is no limit of knowledge you can get from reading these books. How much should you read? I prefer reading at least 10 pages every day. Before reading a particular book, ask yourself what do you want to gain from it? Why are you reading this book?

These points originated from Hal Elrods “Miracle Morning Transformation.” Go check him out to figure out more on how to transform your life with your morning practices.

The 3 Most Important Things I Learned About Personal Growth

When you look back on your life, what do you want to think about? Do you plan to reminisce on all of the good things that have happened and how they shaped who you are today? Or would you rather remember all of the bad decisions, challenging experiences, and mistakes made that hurt or wasted a portion of your life?

In my opinion, I think it is important to reflect on both. While it’s important to remember the hardships we’ve been through in our lives – without them we wouldn’t be where we are now. There are 3 very specific areas that I feel have helped me grow in a personal sense more than anything else in my life so far. 

These aren’t simple lessons in a book or a lecture that you can just absorb and apply to your life. These are things that I’ve learned through experience and reflection, and I’m still learning and growing today.

1. We determine how much we’re worth by what we think about ourselves, others, and life in general.

This might seem like a pretty obvious lesson in life but it’s actually one of the most important because we can determine our own worth by how we think about ourselves and the world around us. If you’re looking for success in any kind of business or social setting (dating), then I’ll tell you right now that it doesn’t matter if you have 10 billion dollars or not – people are still going to judge you based on your thoughts and beliefs alone.

What determines our value isn’t necessarily what we do with our lives (which is often based on luck) but whether or not we believe that ‘our work’ is worthy or not in some sort of grand scheme or universe. We may not always be able to control what happens in our lives, but we can always control how we value ourselves and others.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou

2. You don’t have to change your habits or personality just because someone else doesn’t like it – their opinions are THEIRS alone.

This is another one of those lessons that people tend to pick up on a little bit late in life, but if anything that makes its importance even worse! Basically, there’s going to come a time when you’re going to meet someone who has certain expectations of you as a person…but these expectations might not be realistic due to their motivations and personal beliefs. For example, sometimes parents might expect you to be a lawyer or doctor because that’s what they believe is best for their child.

However, this isn’t the case for everyone and so maybe your passion lies in music or writing novels. In this example, if you were also pressured into becoming a doctor – then there would obviously be some kind of conflict going on within yourself as a person. You should never have to give up something that you want to do just because someone else doesn’t like it! The reason why we’re put onto this Earth is to make our own choices and go after our OWN dreams instead of letting others determine what we can and cannot do with our lives .

3. You can’t change your life until you accept that you need to make a change.

When I was younger, I thought that this lesson would be pretty obvious – but as I got older, it really made me appreciate the fact that there are always different ways of perceiving our lives. For example, if someone wants to become rich and famous one day – their mind might simply overshadow any other possibility in their head because they feel like this is what they NEED to do right now.

However, this isn’t always true within our own lives because we think about things too literally instead of having an open mind. If you want to achieve success in any kind of business or social setting (dating) then you should be willing to try out different things instead of staying in your comfort zone. If you want something, then it’s up to YOU to actually go after it – nobody else is going to give it to you!

The three lessons above are some of the main things I want to pass on to everyone because they’ve come at an important time in my life where I need to start thinking about others instead of only myself. It’s great if we can learn to love ourselves first before anything else, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect everyone around you even though they might be your friends and family members!
