There’s a clear achiever in everyone’s eyes, whether a role model or someone with a high ranking in success. The factor separating these achievers from the common folks struggling to achieve what they want is simple: a routine.
It’s just as John C. Maxwell said, "You'll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret to success is found in your daily routine."
A routine you build for yourself impacts your personal and professional life significantly, even without your knowledge. And a simple shift in daily actions will create a positive change in your life. To bring this change, here are some of the most consequential things you can include in your routine to create a better life for yourself.
If you are the one to snooze the alarm clock in the morning, then you need to rethink this one. A majority of successful people have claimed to be early risers and have a pre-morning routine ready. Just like Richard Branson, the founder and chairperson of Virgin Group, who mentions in his blog about being an early riser. He favours early rising due to the opportunity it gives "to achieve so much in a day, and therefore in life." It also gives him the time to catch up with news and emails and to have an organized schedule for the day.
Reinforcing your mind with a single mantra you tell yourself daily will put you in the right state of mind. Saying "I am ready for anything today!" or something similar to this with conviction will build your mindset and prepare you for the day ahead. Supplying such positive thoughts to your mind also helps you with stress management and improves your health.
Exercising plays a major role in obtaining greater energy and a better outlook at the start of the day. Oprah in Harpers Bazaar mentions that she follows a series of spiritual exercises, including meditation, before her physical workout. Exercising every day promotes mental clarity so that you are better prepared for your day. Moreover, a calming activity like meditation also releases chronic stress patterns and sharpens concentration.
Progress in small parts will help you achieve the bigger picture you have in mind. Break down your daily tasks into a checklist so that you walk into the day being organized. Every task that you check off from the list will motivate you for further tasks of the day.
Journaling is not just for creative folks; it’s for everyone. According to The New York Times, journaling can help you improve your job performance and relieve stress and anxiety. Dedicating time out of your busy routine for journaling is one of the best ways to explore your creative side.
