9 Things You Must Do Every Morning If You Want To Be Successful

Everyone wakes up every morning with new expectations, high hope and determination.

The way we decide to start our day in one way or the other contribute immensely to the success of that day or what you stand to achieve.

Anybody can be successful. But if you are serious about achieving success, there are a few things you need to do first – especially when you wake every morning. Let’s take a look at 10 things you should do in the morning in order to be more successful.

1. Exercise

You might think that you can exercise at any time of the day, but once everything starts piling up it’s often exercise that gets nudged off the to-do list. To make sure this doesn’t happen, do it first thing.

2. Wake Up Earlier

You might think that stumbling out of bed at 8 a.m to make your coffee is early enough. What you must know is that successful people make a habit out of rising early; and by early, we’re talking 6 a.m. Time is a really precious commodity, and this is something that successful people seem to know better than anyone else. They know that time can easily get eaten up by the small things, such as phone calls, unplanned visits, meetings, crises and so on. As such, they rise early to make sure they have enough time to get everything done.

Waking up earlier also gives you a psychological edge. When you know that everyone else is still in bed while you’re being productive, it gives you a boost. You’re ahead of the competition and it feels great.

3. Shift Your Focus To Productivity Rather Than Forming Busy

Some people like to keep busy. It makes them feel as though they’re living their lives by staying active. Simply flopping on the sofa and watching television makes them feel worthless. But being busy is not enough. Anybody can be busy doing meaningless things that add no value to our lives. Instead, you need to start shifting your focus to productivity.

Celebrities sometimes seem like busy people; they are often snapped out shopping, on red carpets or on beaches. But business is not productivity. What you need to start doing is using your time more productively. This will help you to get more things done in a shorter space of time.

So, each morning you need to use your time in the right way and do something productive; this will set the tone for the rest of your day.

4. Eat A Healthy Breakfast

Many of us head out the door with nothing more than a cup of coffee swimming around our stomach. Others stuff pancakes, doughnuts or bacon down their faces.

All these options are unhealthy. Eating nothing leaves you without energy, while eating fatty food will lead to brain fog. Instead, you should eat a healthy breakfast in the morning that fuels your body.

5. Plan Your Day

Very few things get achieved without planning. You might achieve one or two things throughout your day, but you won’t get a sense of fulfillment that comes from achieving your major goals. A productive day simply cannot happen without a plan. If you don’t plan, you’ll be buzzing around all day, making mistakes, losing time, getting trapped on the tram, with frustration growing. The morning is a great time to plan your day.

6. Read Or Watch Something Motivational

Successful people read a lot. One of the things they read are motivational material, which gets them in the right frame of mind for the day ahead. This is something you can do too. If you’re not a particularly attentive reader, you could instead watch a motivational video on the internet.

7. Eat The Frog

“Eat the frog” is actually a motivational line that all successful people abide by. Essentially, it means that you should do your most difficult task first before all others. In this way, the hardest part of your day is already done and dusted and it’s (fairly) easy pickings from now on.

Psychologically, this puts you at a distinct advantage. If you leave the hardest task until the end of the day, its shadow will cast itself over everything you do. Getting it out of the way early on will lift a weight off your shoulders.

8. Take A Leap

Often, we’re not successful because something is holding us back. Usually, this “something” is a fear of the unknown. We are offered risks and adventures, but we hold back. We play it safe, sticking to the same job, the same town, the same faces. We say that perhaps next year we’ll go for it. But next year comes around and again we play it safe.

If you want to be a success, it’s time to start taking those risks. Each morning, you need to be taking those risks. If you play it safe in the morning, you’ll play it safe throughout the day.

9. Pay Attention To Your Partner

Being a success doesn’t just mean being successful at work. It means being a success in all aspects of your life, especially at home with your partner. It’s important that your partner knows you love and respect them. In the morning, you should spend some time with them before you go to work. Maybe even give them a back rub or make them breakfast in bed. This can put you in a hugely relaxed and positive mindset for the day ahead.

  1. What you have said is right on true. “Very few things get accomplished without planning?”. Hmmm. It is the one thing that I would not agree with. Hmmmm. Maybe you are right. I jus had to think of it for a moment. It just seems that you are denying the power of uncertainty. And all the stuff that gets accomplished even though it was not planned. I’m not saying that I do not plan, because I do. But you need to be flexible and adapt to situations at the drop of a hat… Allow yourself to trust the universe. Yes. It is a risk. But that is something that you said that you should do every morning too so, I really wonder why I am writing all this stuff because why would I even care what I think anyway. I think you should plan to look at my website. There I go again. Who cares right ? I feel super negative right now I don’t know why.
    Or maybe I do know why. I think it’s because I’m sitting here on my phone writing. People have their own opinions, and 100 other opinions at their fingertips…. This is why I deleted my Facebook account. !! Thanks for the realization!! And also , you wrote a groo-groovy article. I respect you as much as I agree with you,. And that’s alot. Peace
