You are what you eat. You are what you read. You are what you think. And you are what you hear. Everything you allow into your life shapes or influences the person you are in some way, so it’s important to be in control of what’s coming in. A great way to control what you hear is through awesome podcasts which can be listened to in place of music when you’re driving or working. Below is a list of my favorite podcasts that have added a ton of value to my life and many others.

In order to have a powerful and productive day, you need to start it in an energizing way (I couldn’t help myself with the rhyme). There are numerous successful millionaires and entrepreneurs who have developed morning routines to take their game to the next level.

I’ve personally noticed the massive impact on my life from developing this habit. Inspired by Hal Elrod’s Miracle Morning, I’ve got 4 simplified steps to kickstart your day!

1Exercise

Let’s get the blood flowing and the charge of energy you need to start your day. It doesn’t have to be an hour workout at the gym. It can be a 20 minute yoga session. As long as you do some sort of physical activity, you’re good to go!

Mornings are a great time to get your workout done. You won’t have to think about it for the rest of the day or worry about what excuse you’ll come up with next as to why you can’t workout after a busy day. People who are able to do morning workouts are more consistent, too.

2Enlightenment

This can range from your religious practices and spiritual beliefs to gratitude and affirmations. The idea is to put yourself in the right mindset to be more present, caring, loving, and focused throughout the day. Here are some examples that you can try for your mornings: meditation, journaling, visualizing, bible reading, affirmations, gratitude, goal reflections.

3Education

Personal development and self-education is an absolute must if you want to take your morning’s to the next level. If you’re reading this, then I’m sure you already know how important it is to continuously invest in your own personal growth and development. You can read a book, watch online videos/courses, or listen to audiobooks! You can even listen to audiobooks or podcasts during your morning exercise.

4Execution

I’ve found this last item to be the most rewarding. If you can execute your number one task for the day before your day even begins, you’ve created massive momentum for the rest of the day! Everyday, if you can focus on that ONE thing that moves your business or on the most daunting task where you know you’ll want to procrastinate, then you’re well on your way to your next level. As Brian Tracy would say, “Eat that frog!”

How you start your day is how you’re going to live your day. And how you live your day is the way you live your life. ~Louise Hay

These are just a few ideas for you to develop your own morning routine. Customize it so that it fits and amplifies your life. You must now take the reins and live intentionally. If you already have an awesome morning routine, leave your ideas and what’s worked for you in the comments below to share with others that want to develop this new habit!
