What I thought I would do today was, give you some information, or what could be the biggest thing that I could give you that could make the most impact to your life and your business?
It’s nothing to do with business knowledge or business strategy or anything like that, this is going to help your execution.
What this is about, is about clarity.
Let me give you a couple of the five things that I do every morning, which have literally transformed my life and the growth of all areas of my life exponentially.
The first thing is clarity and based on your execution.
This is where most people are going to struggle. We’ve got some of the information, but we struggle with the actual execution and the consistency, the daily habits.
Let’s start with making the day powerful with how we start in the morning
1. More Power To Your Day
The first thing that we can do is as soon as we get up is we need to maintain clarity and not be reactive.
The first thing is, is no phone for the first hour of the day. No sitting on your phone in bed, lounging, being on Facebook.
I tend to wake up and I’ll have that fuzzy mind, so I need to get up, I need to create some energy change mind state to get into that powerful mind state, so that I can get some powerful stuff done that day and really move things forwards.
The first thing is no phone for the first hour of the day. We need to be focused on ourselves, not on other people, on other things, so that we can have that clarity. So, by not having the phone means we’re focusing on you.
You are the most important thing.
2. Remove The Chaos And Distractions
The second thing is, is once we do that is meditation.
Now you probably start to hear this after mindfulness courses, I’ve trained with Buddhist monasteries, I’ve invested in various different programs and over the last sort of four or five years, done a lot with regards to meditation.
Now the reason why meditation helps is because, you know, especially me.
I’ve got a very monkey mind that can be a bit chaotic, have lots of ideas, lots of energy going on, lots of chatter going on, so the most important thing is we want to be able to have clarity amongst all that chaos.
One of the best way we can do that is meditation.
Now if you’ve never meditated before, I highly recommend it and you’ll probably find it quite difficult to begin with because your mind will find it difficult to be still.
If that’s happening, which highly likely it will, then that’s the very reason why you need to be meditating.
To get that absolute mental clarity to know what to do and get rid of those fuzzy thinking that goes on in our minds.
If you haven’t meditated before, you can try these apps like Headspace, which is very popular. I’ve used that in the past before, myself.
The other thing as well as you can do is if you’re quite new to meditation, is you can go to YouTube and type in body scan meditation.
Because what that will do is that’s a great way to start on how to get meditating and get good.
You want to be doing it for around about 10 minutes or so.
You can try it with some relaxing music, but try it with guided meditations to begin with, to get started.
What that will do is, that’s going to be able to get your mind into that state of clarity and focus, so it’s going to be easier for you to know what to do next without being distracted. That’s the first thing.
3. How To Win Everyday
Then what we’re going to do is we’re going to write down three things that we need to do for the day.
Just three things. When we’ve written those three things, one of those things needs to have a pound sign or a dollar sign next to it, which is what is the activity that is going to bring in the money.
What is going to move the needle for your business today. Okay?
That’s all we have to do. If we have three things, then all we need to do is have three wins a day and at the end of the day, you know whether you won or lost, but most importantly is if you are focused on that big win, that one important win a day, the one thing that’s the money activity, the one thing that’s not the time waster, then you are going to be moving your business forwards each day.
That’s the equivalent to not hitting home runs, but hitting singles every day.
If you do that four out of five days, then you’ve won the week.
It’s as simple as that. If you do these three things, I guarantee that these are going to make the biggest difference to your life that any other thing that you can possibly learn.
So, number one is, no phone for the first hour.
No responding to emails, Facebook, no nothing.
We’re just focusing on us, on what we’ve got to do.
The second thing is meditating, we’re going to use an app, we’re going to develop that mental clarity and that focus.
What will happen after about four days, something will start to shift inside of you, that is very difficult to describe, but it’s that calmness, and that calmness is the super power and that’s what we want.
As soon as you’ve meditated then we’re going to go into writing the three things down.
Three things that we need to do for the day. We’ve got that absolute clarity from the meditation, we aren’t being distracted by the phones being reactive. Then we have these three things, then we can get started and then you can turn on your phone and do the other things that you need to do.
Do these three things and I guarantee you’re going to coming back to me in three to six months time, because your life and your business is going to improve dramatically. Good luck with that.
