We live in a society of sheep. People are sensitive to everything. A world where people need safe spaces because their feelings got hurt. If we don’t prefer something, we complain. People think life isn’t fair to only them. They put the blame on others instead of themselves. It’s in this world, one breed that stands tall. Lions will rise against the sheep.
The Lions are the successful ones. Every time you turn to look around, they’ve accomplished something greater. While you are staying a sheep, their roar is getting louder. Those who are lions started as cubs. Perhaps they were once sheep themselves. But you can transform into a lion.
Here are the 10 daily rituals of the Lions in the world:
1. Getting up before sunrise
Most people get out of bed and go straight to work. They take hours to get started. Then it’s lunch time. Their full and unproductive once again. They go home from work executing minimal.
The lion gets up before the sunrise. They wake between four and five in the morning. When you’re getting up, a lion has done work. In what you achieve in one day, a lion has accomplished by nine in the morning.
Lions include this practice on the weekends. They don’t slip into the mediocrity mindset. They don’t care about going out and partying. A lions work wakes him.
2. Cold shower
While most people don’t dare to take a cold shower, a lion takes one everyday. Whether it’s zero degrees or eighty degrees, he knows through this uncomfortable process, he will get stronger.
A lion understands that if he can get an edge over his competition, he will take it. Hot showers have no benefit for a person. Cold showers can help relieve your stress and boost your energy levels.
No matter how tough it might be, a lion will take a cold shower. Others will think of him as crazy, he knows the average mindset speaking.
3. Read 1 hour
Lions are improving themselves every day. The person they were last month doesn’t compare to the person they were today. Lions read between fifty to sixty books per year. They read books on everything and have a vast knowledge of the world.
Sheep read one book per year if that. They’re not listening to audiotapes in the car. Reading a book won’t cross their mind. Lions will use this to their advantage. A true lion knows if it wants to get ahead in life, he must apply the knowledge he reads. He’s a voracious reader and let’s nothing stand in his way.
4. Completes daily tasks
Before each day, a lion writes what he must achieve. He numbers the list and knows when he wakes up the next morning, he’ll hit the ground running.
With the tasks to achieve, a lion is sacred in completing them. No one will stop him from achieving the day. When a lion sets these tasks, they are out of his reach. This will force him to grow.
He will not sleep until his tasks are done. Lions have the self-discipline it takes to become successful. They know it starts with what they do each day.
5. Doesn’t waste time
Sheeps of the world spend countless hours on their phone and watching TV. You wouldn’t dare to see a lion use a TV in his house. They don’t want that temptation.
The only time they use their phone is if they are doing business. While majority of people are wasting time on social media, lions are completing their tasks. They are getting faster and they are getting stronger. Lions use this as an asset.
A lion uses the power of suppression to dull the need to waste time. They don’t pick up the phone unless they need to. Lions don’t know what’s happening in the world. They are one-hundred percent focused on growing their business and mastering their craft.
6. Eat healthy
Lions pay attention to what they’re eating. Sheeps eat everything in sight. They don’t understand how it will affect their performance. Sheeps put it off until tomorrow while a lion focuses on today.
A lion will plan out his meals according to a schedule. He knows when to take a break and eat. He focuses on eating the foods that will sustain and give him energy throughout the day. A sheep never pays attention to his diet. A lion will gain power. Trust me, they put it to their best use.
“To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.” – La Rochefoucauld
Someone who’s a lion never goes a full day without exercise. Whether that’s power lifting or cardio. You wouldn’t catch a lion not improving his body. A sheep is one to never workout.
Lions have their programs for working out. They either purchased these or work with a trainer. Lions understand that it’s not only important to strengthen your mind, but to strengthen your body. There’s not one place in which a lion wants to lack.
Sometimes a lion won’t want to workout. He’ll still force himself to go to the gym or go outside for a run. Once again, a lion sees this as themselves getting stronger.
8. Follow their purpose
A lion doesn’t want to work for someone else. Each and every one of us has our own calling. The sheep will tremble in fear. They think others will think different of them. Sheep are paralyzed by their fears of what could go wrong.
The lion goes after his dream, even if he knows he might fail. He’d want to spend his entire life chasing his dream rather than creating someone else’s. With each passing day, a lion is getting better on his craft.
Every person in this world knows what their passion is. It’s hidden inside of ourselves. Sheep keep it trapped while lions let it roar.
9. Show others why they’re the beast
Everyone wants to be a beast until it’s time to do what beasts do. When others are scared to take a risk, lions capitalize. When there’s blood in the streets, lions make a fortune.
Sheep procrastinate on their tasks. They put it off until tomorrow. A lion smells fear and goes in for the kill. They don’t wait for the ideal time. There is never a more perfect time than in the present.
When it’s Saturday night and the sheep are out partying, the lion is grinding. He doesn’t use a parameter for time. The weekend is another day to work on his craft.
10. Scare themselves
Lions have one task every day that scares them. A lion might meditate for twenty minutes instead of ten. It could be making one-hundred sales call in a day instead of fifty. A lion knows if it wants to grow, he must get out of its comfort zone.
While the sheep stay complacent, a lion is scaring themselves. They want to meet failure, to learn from the circumstance. A sheep wouldn’t dare to break out of their daily routine. Lions venture into new territory. Places they’ve never been. They conquer new lands and hold the throne to new kingdoms.
