God willing you wake up to a new day, every morning you have 2 options.
1. Wake up at the last second, scramble to get all your shit together, rush out the door and start your day in chaos.
2. Wake up exactly when you want, spend time with you mind, read a little, study a little, workout and sweat, create some memories with the loved ones, then accomplish everything you want the way you want that day.
I have been prating a morning ritual for the last 4 years. I’ve tried things that don’t work. I’ve mastered things that do.
And the one thing I know with 100% surety is this.
If you fail to plan, plan to fail.
If you do not have a very specific and very intentional morning routine your day will rule and run you.
Stating your day in chaos will not result in good results at work or with the kids. Work is stressful, kids are stressful, so these things will just add to the already overwhelmingly intense day you are having.
Unless you are in complete control and have taken advantage of the opportunity to start your day on YOUR TERMS by doing POWERFUL and SPECIFIC things!
Many of you reading this say “I don’t have time” in the morning.
YOU HAVE NOT MADE YOUR MORNING A PRIORITY!
Reading a few pages, listening to a podcast or video on Youtube, doing some pushups and burpees. All of these things can be accomplished in 10-15 minutes, and if you say you don’t have 10 minutes you are really just saying “my morning is not important, and my mind is ok being chaotic.”
I wrote a small ebook about my morning rituals and morning routine.
It’s 100% free and you can get it here:
Try some of the things I suggest. Google what other people do in the morning. Copy what they are doing and find what works for you.
Regardless if you do what I do or what someone else does, it’s imperative YOU CREATE A MORNING ROUTINE THAT WORKS FOR YOU!
