1. Wake Up Early
Enjoy a peaceful setting and get a few things done first thing in the morning. Many people will tell you that waking up early is one of the greatest keys to success.
2. Eat A Healthy Breakfast
Now that you are waking up earlier you have the time to prepare the most important meal of the day. Rushing out the door on an empty stomach is no way to begin a successful day.
Exercising a few times a week will make you feel better physically, create motivation, improve thinking, and promote a positive mood. A good run is a great way to boost the endorphins in your body.
4. Drink More Water
Water is essential for life, but many people are choosing large caloric beverages instead of water. In fact, studies show that those who had the most water in their daily diet consumed fewer total calories, drank fewer sweetened beverages, and consumed less total fat, saturated fat, sugar, salt, and cholesterol. Improve your overall health, grab another glass of water.
5. Get Your Vitamins & Minerals
We no longer getting the much-needed vitamins and minerals through our food intake. Our diets are filled with highly processed foods, refined sugars, and minimal intake of fruits and vegetables. Download our eBook for a copy of our shopping list, or consider buying a multi-vitamin supplement.
6. Set Daily Goals
People know where they’d like to be but forget (or neglect) to set daily goals to keep them headed in the right direction. Long-term goals are important, but it’s the daily goals that help us reach them.
7. Follow A Plan
A life without a plan is like a road trip without a map. Unexpected things might happen, you might get lost, or it could take twice as long. Stick to a plan, track your progress, adjust your course of action, and you can eventually accomplish your goals (as long as you don’t give up along the way).
8. Take Action
We’ve all heard it before, but most of us never do it. When you get trapped between doing nothing and doing something painful (or time-consuming), you will invent simple ways to stay doing nothing. Try to fight procrastination 15 minutes at a time: set a timer on your phone for 15 minutes and focus on only doing the task you’ve been putting off.
9. Keep Positive Thoughts
Remove the negative thoughts in your life. It might be hard to stay positive all the time, however, remaining positive is one of the best ways to get what you want. Avoid people who try to bring you down or doubt you.
10. Tear Down Fears
Stop allowing fear to control your life. The re-runs of awful scenarios in your head need to be discontinued – NOW. Fear can halt your progress, so keep your mind on the positive. Don’t worry about tomorrow because it will come whether you’re thinking about it or not.
11. Learn Something New
Find something that you’d like to learn more about. Whether it’s about underwater basket weaving or learning a foreign language. Educating yourself can improve your life or increase your efficiency in skills you already know.
12. Get Inspired
Staying motivated for a long time is tough. Often when discouraged, we will let it derail our ‘success train.’ Get inspired by others who reached their goals and made their dreams come true.
13. Enjoy ‘Me’ Time
Don’t forget about yourself – set time aside to just do what you love. You don’t always have to be dead-set on achievement and success. Go for a country-road drive, listen to your favorite music, or go watch a movie you’ve been dying to see. Just take some time out of your day to focus on you.
