Have you ever asked yourself what highly successful people do first every morning?
Have you ever tried to consider what is the early morning routine of exceptionally productive business executives and entrepreneurs?
The first thing successful people in the morning is not checking their emails or checking who poked them on Facebook, neither is it checking out newspaper headlines
They first claim and reclaim the day with specific authority activities before moving on to business and social life.
The good thing today is that we can learn what successful people, highly successful entrepreneurs and executives, do upon waking up in the morning and apply them in our lives and position ourselves for a better tomorrow.
Here they are:
1. They Wake up really early and go to bed very late.
Time is the greatest gift to man other than air.
Really successful executives and entrepreneurs wake up at 5:30 am, 4:30 am and even 4:00 am.
Not only will they have more control in their early hours, they’ll also have more opportunities to do things that matter to them.
Start with waking up 15 minutes earlier than your usual time. Then, gradually adjust.
2. They exercise their body
We don’t mean just the intense exercise regimen – you can simply do meditation, rope skipping, etc.
Exercise will not just make you think clearer, be healthier and scientifically happier, it allows you to combat stress as well.
Make time for exercise each morning.
If an hour-long routine seems too daunting, try running, dancing or even walking around the neighborhood for at least ten minutes.
3. They do an “ENERGY HOUR”
You’re more likely to have a great day and accomplish your goals if you’re emotionally invested and charged.
Listen to spiritual messages, motivational quotes and empowering music.
Highly successful people do this every morning before anything else.
4. Ask yourself one important question
“If today was the last day of your life, would you still want to do what you’re about to do today?”
This hard-hitting question gets you right where it wants you. If you find yourself saying “no” several times in a week, then go out there and change something. You never know when you’ll have the opportunity to do it the next time.
5. They plan and strategize.
If you don’t take a few minutes of your time to map out the direction of your day, how will you know if you’re headed towards the right direction?
Take at least 10 minutes of your day to visualize your life goals, review your tasks for the day and allot schedules for breaks. It’ll help your day be more manageable and less stressful.
Make a list and put them in your pocket and let it be your daily guide.
6. Connect with your partner
Use your morning hours to reconnect with your partner. Talk about your plans, your finances and even your beloved hobbies as a way to always be present in their lives.
In the morning, highly successful people know that you’ll have more energy and more focus so making this a ritual is paramount.
There is a funny but proven scientific fact that men who kiss and connect with their partner made more daily success in their goals.
7.They play, cuddle and bond with their kids
If you have children, this is for you.
Don’t be that parent who says, “Oh, my son/daughter grew so fast! I barely had time to enjoy with her/him.”
In the morning, when there is less clutter in your mind and less stress in your system, make it a point to help them get dressed, cook a hearty breakfast (or bake a batch of cookies) and even talk to them about their dreams.
After all, you’re working so that your family will have a better time.
8. They Eat their frogs in the morning, not later.
In the morning, the willpower of highly successful people is fresh and ready to go.
So, this is the best time to take advantage of it – do your hardest task, your “frog” first.
This way, you’re more likely to get it done and you’re more likely to finish it without other people barging in on you.
Choose your “frog” of the day – only one – and stick to completing it before you even get to eat breakfast.
