Do you ever look at successful people in wonder? How do they do it?
Do you want to get ahead in your life, but it seems like hard work and constant struggles?
Well, there are things that you can do that will help you in leaps and bounds.
Let’s start by having you look at your good habits because they will help support you in reaching your goals.
What are “good” habits?
First, what is a good habit? Good habits are actions you take on a regular basis that are linked to your behaviours, and they benefit your physical and mental health. Good habits are often thought to need a high level of discipline and self-control. But are they?
Ask yourself, what are some good habits that you have right now? What are things you do daily or often that really are beneficial to you?
Take a minute, write a few down, or just think of a few. What’s on your list?
I’ve made a list of really good habits that support my values, beliefs, and goals. Do you share any of these 10?
Now looking at each habit we can see how they are important to us.
For example, one of my good habits is I make my bed everyday. What is the importance of that for me? Well I work from home and my office is quite near my bedroom. So, when I go to the bathroom I walk through my bedroom to my en-suite. Can you imagine walking through your room seeing your bed NOT made? That wouldn’t be the greatest sight, but if it’s made seeing it all neat and tidy, actually feels really good! It’s a little boost for my energy.
How morning rituals make you successful
What are some really good habits you have and how do they add to your success?
Well, if you start your day by doing something great like getting up early, meditating, working out, eating a good breakfast, or like me making your bed, do you think that kicks off your day in the best way? For sure. It totally does! Successful people not only have morning habits but they have a whole morning ritual of habits.
The morning is a really great place to start having good habits so you start your day off right. This is when you're going to get the most benefit because it fuels the rest of your day!
Do you like to hit your snooze button when your alarm goes off? Do you wake up and immediately reach for your phone? If you want to break yourself of these bad habits, think about what would be an ideal habit to have in the morning?
One popular morning ritual I reference in my book Dynamic You is called the Miracle Morning. It’s a book by Hal Elrod created around as series of steps called LifeSAVERS: Silence, Affirmations, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, and Scribing (or journaling). Where you do each for 10 minutes or make your own timing for them.
Many successful people have other morning routines you can follow, or you can make one that serves you.
You can also create new and good habits that tie into getting ready for work, starting your day, or getting into different activities that you have.
This week I challenge you to really look at the good habits you have now, and good habits you want to have because next week I’ll share the secret to how successful women achieve their goals by adding new good habits, and how they replace their bad habits with good ones.
