Successful people are particular about their habits. They respect their habits specially their morning habits. You know it only takes 20 days to build a habit. So without you hitting the off button on alarm, and saying 5 more minutes.
Let’s get started!
1. They wake up early
Nearly most of the self made millionaires/successful people wake up early.
They wake up as early as possible. They respect their morning time. For common people, waking up early sounds like a task, but it’s not! Once you have the habit of waking up early it helps a lot.
Waking up early means they also go to bed on time. Having given the perfect rest to the body helps a lot.
2. They make their bed
Do check this motivational speech by Admiral William McRaven.
So basically keeping the room in order and making the bed sounds like a minor task but it makes a huge difference.
3. They workout
They work out or do yoga in morning. Work out can be done by many ways like cycling, jogging, morning walk, any aerobic exercises or playing some sport. Working out regularly clears your head and makes you feel more motivated.
4. They have healthy breakfast
Breakfast is most important meal of the day. So it is really important that one must have a healthy breakfast; and that’s what they believe.
A healthy breakfast gives you necessary energy and strength to start the day.
One more important thing is Drink water! Drinking water throughout the day keeps your body hydrated.
5. They take out time for focused thinking
In their morning schedule, they give 20 to 30 minutes of their morning time for focused thinking.
The successful people most of the time think in isolation. They think or even they write down.
If you have quite time to analyze your thoughts is associated with stress reduction. They think about their lives and process everything about what they have to do.
6. They spend time reading
Reading is one the best habits of the successful people. Read books that motivate you, or read newspapers. Mostly all of the successful people advice to read books; Reading helps to enhance your mind.
You get to know a newer perspective which helps you to think, and reading newspapers keeps you updated with day to day events going on around the world. Some motivational books you can read are:
- The Magic Of Thinking Big By Dr. David J. Schwartz
- The Life, Lessons & Rules Of Success By Steve Jobs
- Choose Yourself By James Altucher
- Think And Grow Rich By Napoleon Hill
7. They meditate
Meditation helps to achieve calmness and clarity in your thoughts. Successful people apart from working out also meditate. It always helps to sit in silence focusing on your own mind with some chanting.
Calm mind helps a lot to think rationally. Rational thinking is of the best keys of successful people.
8. They listen to podcasts
They listen to podcasts. Listening to podcasts helps to develop new thought process. We hear other people’s success stories, which help us getting motivated. Developing new thought process helps to develop new ideas.
New ideas are again another key of success.
9. They schedule their day
They always have a plan ready. They schedule their day well. It is in a perfect order and they even follow the schedule.
They follow everything on the list.
They even set goals for the day; setting goals for the day in morning helps you feel more motivated to achieve it.
10. They spend their time with their loved ones
Spending quality time with the ones who encourage you, who support you, who always motivate you; and the ones who were always there with you in your bad times, spending quality time with them is really important.
Talking to them, laughing with them, doing whatever you want to.
Normally, we just forget about spending time with our loved ones.
Successful people do that! It maybe only 30 minutes as well, but they do it!
Personally I feel that, this habit is one of the beautiful, positive and best habits that one has.
The best motivation a successful person always gets is from a loved one.
These were some of the habits of successful people. They have even more.
As it is said, “20 days of discipline can create 20 years of prosperity”
So that’s it! Those were the 10 morning habits which successful people have and if said we all must follow them.
