Would like to know some of the rare morning habits that may transform your life once and for all? We are living in one of the most advanced and prosperous times in the history of human beings. There are endless opportunities and resources available for us than ever before. Despite the many resources and opportunities, many of us aren’t getting the results we want to have in life. We aren’t able to tap into the unlimited potential vested within us. That ain’t right. Isn’t it?
There is a huge gap of potential in our lives that separates who we are from who we can be. We spent a huge chunk of our time figuring out what we should do to live a prosperous life, however, most of us do not implement any of our thoughts. In order to salvage your life from mediocrity and this unfulfilled potential, you must prioritize and dedicate a good amount of your time for personal development.
Here are 7 daily practices that will help you create the ideal life you want.
1. Objective Silence.
For our fast and noisy lifestyles, objective silence is one of the most significant tools for personal development. Objective silence simply means that you engage in silence for a beneficial purpose. A single hour of silence has the ability to teach you more than you can learn from reading books alone. If you conduct an in-depth analysis into the lives of the most successful people on this planet, you will be shocked to discover that most of them often engage in objective silence to achieve extra-ordinary results.
If you want to focus on the most important things in your life and to reduce your stress levels, you ought to kick-start your morning with a period of objective silence. The way you do this depends on your preference. Some of the most efficient activities you can practice during this period is praying, meditation and deep breathing. These activities will assist you to not only relax your body but also your mind. Nevertheless, it is vital to leave the comfort of your bed while performing these activities because there is greater probability that you might fall back asleep if you stay in your bed.
2. Reading Books.
Reading is the most efficient morning ritual practiced by the highly successful. It is the method of acquiring the strategies, knowledge and ideas needed to radically accomplish your goals in order to transform your life. Do not just read random books. Instead, read books about the people who have already accomplished what you want to do. Emulate the techniques and strategies of these successful people. There are thousands of high-quality books on almost any topic. The knowledge you can acquire from books is limitless. “How much should I read?” So you ask. Well, I recommend 12 pages daily. Before reading any book, ask yourself, “Why am I reading this book? What do I want to gain from this book?” Thereafter, go ahead and read voraciously to radically transform your life for the better.
Morning exercises, even for a couple of minutes will significantly boost your energy levels throughout the day. In addition, morning exercises will aid in the enhancement of your mental activity.
The decision on how to spend your exercise time relies on you. You can go for a run, a long walk or hit the gym. The most important thing is to dedicate some time for exercise every morning.
Many successful people for instance Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith advocated the use of visualization in the accomplishment of their goals. A celebrity like Will Smith says that he used to visualize his fame and success long before he became successful. Therefore, visualizing what you want is important every morning. Visualize that you have already accomplished your goals. Imagine how this achievement has transformed your life and how happy you are after that accomplishment.
Try to see, feel, touch, smell and taste every detail in your vision. To enhance comfort-ability during your visualization, you can play some gospel or classical music in the background. Sit up in a comfortable place, take a couple of deep breaths and begin visualizing your future life after you attain your goals.
5. Faith it Till You Make It.
The legendary Mohammad Ali used to repeat the words, “I am the greatest” over and over before he even became great. Affirmation is one of the most effective ways to become someone you hope to be in order to achieve your goals in life. By repeating positive affirmations every morning, you will be able to develop and design a mindset to improve any area of your life.
When you affirm yourself with positive words over and over again, it leads to belief. Belief turns into deep conviction and you become the exact person you wanted to be. I call this skill “Faithing it till you make it.”
Go ahead and write down some positive affirmations and repeat them every morning after getting out of bed. Within a short period of time, these affirmations will transform into a deep conviction. Believe it or not, you will soon witness how quickly you become the person you wanna be. Remember, in order to succeed, you must first believe that you can.
6. Write Your To-Do-List.
To steer clear of inevitable detours and distractions that will definitely emerge later during the day, it is important to write your to-do-list in the morning. Your list should coincide with your goals. The to-do-list should contain three major activities. Avoid congesting your list with many activities because this might turn out to be counterproductive.
7. Practice Gratitude.
To motivate yourself, read your gratitude list every morning. After scanning through the previous day’s achievements, you will feel inspired to give the day at hand your best. At the end of the day, remember to write your gratitude list in order to avail it for reading the following day in the morning.
There are many beneficial activities to partake every morning in order to realize your goals fast. The seven discussed above are the most vital ones. Do you want to transform your life entirely? Begin practicing these morning rituals today.
