How the Successful Start Their Mornings

Please follow and like us:

There’s a lot of ways we can all start our mornings out with. Here are some examples of how some successful people start theirs:

A. ” Most of us have resigned ourselves to a partial completeness, just as Chad Flowler did before losing more than 100 pounds. Partial completeness can take many forms, usually in the form of self-talk like:
“I’m just not [think, fast, strong, muscular, etc.]. That’s the way it is.”
These are said or thought for many reasons. Oftentimes, they’re used to excuse something on the outside that people believe they can’t change.
The beauty is, almost all of it can be changed.
More important, the reason to change the physical isn’t physical at all.

In 2007, I was interviewed for the monthly newsletter of Eben Pagan, who runs a $30 million per year relationship-advice empire. One of his first questions was:

“What’s the fastest way for someone to improve their inner game?”

To which I responded:

“Improve your outer game.”

If you want to be more confident or effective, rather than relying on easily-defeated positive thinking and mental gymnastics, learn to run faster, lift more than your peers, or lose those last ten pounds. It’s measurable, it’s clear, you can’t lie to yourself. It therefore works.

Richard’s Branson’s answer to the question “how do you become more productive?”: work out.

The Cartesian separation of mind and body is false. They’re reciprocal. Start with the precision of changing physical reality and a domino effect will often take care of the internal. ”

B. Now let’s watch this quick video by well-known author, speaker, Entrepreneur Ed Mylett

“I try to move my body first thing in the morning. I try to get that part of the day going because I think your whole life is connected to your body. If you’re a physical state, if you’re moving and know your endorphins going you’re in a peak state it puts you in a peak mental state too, so then I work typically in the morning.” – Ed Mylett

Now, this is interesting. Both Ed Mylett and Tony Robbins start their day our similar.  As we say in the above video Ed gets out of bed on his knees to pray and be grateful and dives into the cold ocean to simulate his whole body.

C. In the video below starting at 2:28 we see Tony Robbins morning routine and we see that Tony starts his day out with what he calls “priming”. Being grateful and also incorporates cold water for body stimulation too.

Even Bill Gates starts our his morning with some exercise:

D. “Then, during an hour on the treadmill, Gates, a self-described nerd, would pass the time by watching DVDs from the Teaching Company’s “Great Courses” series. On some mornings, he would learn about geology or meteorology; on others, it would be oceanography or U.S. history.”

Looking into Jeff Bezos (currently the richest man in the world) morning routine consists of 8 hours of sleep, then coffee and a good breakfast. Nothing about exercise.

The same goes with Warren Buffet. He starts his day out reading. I don’t find anything about exercise and he buys breakfast from McD’s.

Mark Zuckerburg jogs 3 times a week with his dog.

So, there you have it, folks. How many of the successful people of today start out their mornings. I hope it inspires you as it did me with some takeaways for your own life.
