Tips For Your Morning Rituals

Imagine what would happen reader if you started each new day with the same determination and inspiration that is normally reserved for the start of a new year?  When you rise up in the morning, remind yourself of what a precious privilege it is to be alive (I lost sight of that one time reader) and be able to reach for & accomplish new things that day.  Many people don’t get that privilege so it shouldn’t be taken lightly.  Most people wake up and the first thing that starts running through their mind is a lot of stress, worry, and negative thoughts about the day ahead and simply looking forward to it being over, and that’s no way to live.

“How you start your day is how you live your day”  – Kristine Carlson

Rituals will allow you to get more out of everyday reader!  Creating daily rituals for your can & will change your life.  They define who you are and allow you to become the very best you possible.  Taking a small amount of time for yourself in the morning to put yourself in a strong state of mind allows you to become proactive and create the day you want instead of being reactive and simply responding to what the day offers.

The most successful people in the world all have rituals, especially morning rituals that they do consistently.  Their success doesn’t happen by luck, so here are a few tips for creating some rituals for your own life reader that have been gathered from some of the brightest people in the world such as Tony Robins, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Steven King, Richard Branson, and many others.  Some of them may sound simple, but when you do the same things as successful people do, you’ll get the same successful results.  Of course, you’ll want to modify and create something unique that works for you by using this guide.  These rituals can then be put into your Book of Life so you can use them everyday …


“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight!”

First thing in the morning upon waking up, smile!  Put a huge grin on your face and really feel it reader.  Smiling is one of the most important things you can do because it changes your biochemistry and puts you into a good state.

While your smiling, remind yourself that today is a precious gift that not everyone gets.  You’ll feel a sense of gratitude and appreciation that you have another day to create, experience, love, and enjoy.

Stretch & Breath

“Breath is the link between mind and body”  – Dan Brule

Oxygen is the most important thing the cells in your body need reader.  Take several long, deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth while at the same time stretching your entire body to put you in a deep state of relaxation.

Close your eyes and continue to breath deeply while concentrating on each part of your body to relax it even deeper.  Start with your head, face, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, fingers, chest, stomach, hips, thighs, knees, ankles, feet, down to your toes.

“Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for”  – Zig Ziglar


It’s hard to have a bad day when you start it with a sense of gratitude.  Cultivate a habit of being grateful for all the good things that come to you, many of which we take for granted.

With your eyes closed, and breathing deeply (you can do this right after stretching) think of at least 3 things that you are grateful each day.  Think of 1 major thing which might be your spouse, family, children, health, etc. and then think of 2 small, simple things like the breeze outside, your favorite shirt, safe drinking water, a soft pillow, a hot cup of coffee, etc. which teaches you to be thankful for the small things in life which are often overlooked.

“When one starts to visualize the impossible, one begins to see it as possible”  – Cheri Carter-Scott


While you’re still in this state of deep relaxation, take a few brief moments and visualize your perfect day.  What will you do?  What will you accomplish?  What makes you excited? 

Remember great days in the past and what gave you joy and happiness on those days.  Use all your senses when you picture the experience in your mind.

Visualizing your perfect day will program your subconscious to achieve it.  Just as your heart will be beating and your lungs will be breathing without you having to consciously think about it, your subconscious mind will be moving you towards that picture you created of your ideal day in the same manner like a guided missile if that image is strong enough

Affirmations / Statement of Facts

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief, and once that belief becomes a strong convictions, things start to happen”  – Muhammad Ali

Your affirmations can be tailored made to fit your specific task at hand in order to put you in a peak state to start your day.  We’ll give you some examples reader in each category of your life that you can use to help you create your own custom affirmations which I personally call “Statements of Fact.”

Read Over Your Abundance Blueprint

“Do or do not – there is not try”  – Yoda

It’s important to read over your Book of Life each day without exceptions reader.  You don’t “plan” on it or “try” to do it everyday – you just do it without fail!  Reading over your goals should scare you a little (remember to think BIG reader) and excite you a lot.

Read your Book of Life with enthusiasm, passion, certainty, and belief to fire you up and give you purpose.  You’ll find yourself super anxious to start your day.  Prioritize the things you’ll be doing today so that the majority of everything you do brings you closer to accomplishing your life dreams.

“We can’t solve our problems with the same kind of thinking we used when we created them”  – Albert Einstein

Learn Something New

Wise people never stop learning.  If you’re not willing to learn, no one can help you, but if you’re determined to learn, no one can stop you!

Learning new things everyday gives you new talents, skills, and allows you to think outside the box giving you new perspectives.

It could be by reading a book, listening to an audio tape while your ride a bike or do the dishes, watching a video while on a treadmill so you can easily learn something new (exercising your mind) while exercising your body.

“Health is an asset without equal”  – Basque Proverb

Focus On Your Physical Body

This is probably the most common ritual among extremely successful people.  They take time for themselves in the morning to focus on nutrition and exercise to make sure their bodies can take them through the day. 

Nutrition can range from drinking water (lots of it) because our bodies dehydrate during sleep so it’s important to re-hydrate to juicing for a boost of energy, to a simple healthy breakfast.

Exercise can range from waking, running, dancing, jumping up & down, to hardcore workouts – basically anything that gets your body moving.  This movement will have tremendous health benefits on your body by enhancing your state, your emotions, your energy levels, increasing your oxygen levels, and stimulation of your Lymphatic system among just a few.

“The distance between your dreams and reality is called action!”

Plan Your Day & Take Action

Now that you’re in a peak state (both physically & mentally) it’s time to direct your energy towards the most important objectives you want to accomplish today.  Take your highest priorities, write them down and then answer the following questions for each one:

Start with the end in mind.  What’s the outcome or end result you want to have?

What is the purpose of this objective – why do you want to accomplish it?

Your action plan – what are the steps and actions you must take to achieve this result?

P.T.T. is a good strategy to use; Plan Tomorrow Today.  Do this in the evening to make your morning even smoother.
