In the morning start with your breathing routine. This will help you calm your mind and make a positive start to your day. Followed by the affirmation, which will help you focus on the day ahead. With each affirmation, start to feel and believe you can do what it takes to reach goals. By the end of the day, you will feel energized for the next day.

1. Cold Showers

Cold showers are invigorating, and are number one in my book when it comes to increasing your grit, self-discipline and willpower.

Once you’ve developed this habit of going cold water first, not only will you be able to focus on the task at hand, but you’ll start to notice, after the time you’ve allocated, that you have this natural ability to handle the issue and the problem isn’t so difficult and overwhelming that you can’t handle it.
And that’s when, that is when the problem becomes the solution.

[Original] The first thing I do every morning is look in the mirror and say: “Good Morning America.”

Being cold can improve your skin and hair condition, increase your testosterone levels, a feeling of invigoration and increase your grit. It’s just another example of one of the many benefits of cold showers.

Cold showers have been known to have many benefits. It helps cut down your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It helps in relieving your headaches and body pains. It helps in increasing your alertness and makes you more mentally aware. It also helps your body get rid of toxins easier. A cold shower also helps clear your mind, increases your memory and is a great way to sleep better.

2. Perform Power Poses

This quote is not a good fit for this question because it is talking about a problem you have in common.

Sitting hunched over with bad posture is a sure-fire way to prevent yourself from being productive, happy and successful.

The exact opposite is true too, it turns out by performing several minutes of uplifting power poses we can get your brain to release more dopamine, aka the pleasure chemical.

When a dog owner wants to find his dog he will look for a specific area in which his dog normally likes to play. If he looks for the dog in this area, and the dog is not there, he will become angry at the dog and start looking for the dog again.

Power posing is a new-age fad that claims that by simply standing up straight and making yourself look strong, you’ll actually become more powerful and more confident.

3. Exercise

To avoid getting lost, if you wake up later in the morning, find the clock that is closest to your bed and set your alarm to ring for that time. This way, you can easily find the time to prepare for your day.

This is the best part of the routine, you are not going to achieve many new muscles as there has been no exercise to stimulate growth. If you do a few warm up sets before your main set you will stimulate the muscles to contract harder and the resistance needed should be lower. There is no need to go to the gym if you do not have access to one as you can achieve similar results in the privacy of your own home.

You have to feel good to workout hard and the same goes for dieting. When you are feeling bad, you won’t get great results, however, when you feel great you can workout and diet hard without it taking its toll on your body.

How many times have you sat down to do some workout and thought – ‘What am I doing? I am not even close to being fit or ready to get into shape’.

4. Read

I read something every morning. I try to read for 30-45 minutes per day.

Having a coach is one of the most important tools you can have in business. He doesn’t have to be as good as you…
Don’t worry, he can be your best friend (laughs).
But a coach, for example, can help you avoid making mistakes that you could’ve easily avoided and helped you grow.

Books by Bill Gates on various subjects are helpful to me to understand the mindset of a successful entrepreneur. My journey into entrepreneurship has taught me a lot from the books of Bill Gates.

The number of books in the world is growing exponentially, so reading is important.

There are some skills people learn as they get older and as their lives experience change. But, to become an expert in a field, one must to do lots of reading and learn what other people are doing in the field.

5. Review your Goals for the Day

We need to do our best to make a plan,
so we can be effective.

6. We need to help the people where we work.

This is the reason why writing down your goals the night before will leave you with no surprises in the morning.

The problem with decision fatigue is that sometimes, the small decisions, the small actions, the small decisions that we do in our day to day life are the ones that build up over a period of time and ultimately take us over.

Each morning try to keep your list of tasks down to 3 – 5 items. This allows you to focus on the things you need to accomplish, instead of having to remember everything.

6. Perform Your Most Important/Biggest Impact Task First

The task you should perform first is determined through a prioritization process, where you are asked to consider the impact the task will have on your life and/or business.

This is because the brain is at its most open to learning and thinking when we are in this state of calm and focus. We’re likely to accomplish more than if we have to consciously focus our energy.


The best place to start is to start with a plan. The end result is what will matter once you achieve that goal.

In short, you should identify habits you don’t practice and develop new habits to become more disciplined, more active and more healthy in the areas you’re weak in.
