We all say that we are ready for change this year. We talk about how it’s time to get revved up and go for the things that we want in 2013. I think this is all great but in order to really see a change it’s time to change our daily habits and routines and incorporate activities that will get us closer to our goals.
There are 3 components to this simple daily strategy for success, but the hardest part is committing yourself to actually doing it. Once you commit yourself, the rest is easy as pie. Every great achiever implements daily rituals in their lives, so we want you to do the same:
- Begin a morning ritual which includes the following aspects:
Spiritual – This could include meditation, prayer gratitude writing, etc. Some form of connection to your Spirit. There are also prayer calls where a group of people call in and pray collectively and may even share a bible verse. This is my favorite but getting quiet and writing in a journal and meditating is great as well.
Mental – Reading inspiring books, watching videos, any material that will stimulate your mind positively. Stay away from negative images on the “Tele” and those high drama stupid reality shows that suck you into their superficial drama and suck up the time that you could be using to make your life fabulous.
Physical – Yoga, walking in nature, exercise. You want to get your body in motion and work up a sweat. It’s also a good idea to have an 8oz. glass of water (room temp.) when you first wake up in the morning.
Your morning ritual is most effective in durations of 30 minutes to an hour, with an hour being ideal. However, make it suitable for your needs. Keep in mind this is crucial to your strategy for success.
- Begin an Evening Review:
Indulge in the “Mirror Exercise” (Author of “Chicken Soup For The Soul”, Jack Canfield)
ACKNOWLEDGE – With eye contact look in the mirror and acknowledge your wins and victories for the day – big or small. (For example I didn't lose my temper in traffic.)
AFFIRMATIONS – With eye contact look in the mirror and say the 5 core statements or use your own: I am enough, I am worthy & deserving, I forgive myself, I trust myself, I allow myself to receive.
I LOVE YOU – With eye contact look in the mirror and say to yourself “I Love You”!
These activities are the act of taking care of you, nourishing yourself and working on your self-confidence and esteem. When we take time for ourselves, we are both consciously and subconsciously telling ourselves that we matter and that we are valuable; that our needs are important. Believe it or not, this is one of the most important parts of being successful. Your mind and spirit is extremely powerful and the more you tap into this amazing supernatural resource and train your mind, thoughts and spirit to work in your favor, the more success you will see.
Some may say this is a bunch of hogwash, but the reality is most entrepreneurs are lacking the necessary self confidence and self esteem needed to be successful as a business owner. It will be impossible to attract leaders if you are not a leader yourself. This is precisely why so many people can't seem to make Network Marketing work for them. The time spent on building yourself up will pay off huge dividends. Just ask the top income earners! They will tell you all about the time they invested in THEMSELVES before they saw success. You just cannot get around it!
- Write down your daily tasks to complete:
It’s a good idea to write down you tasks the night before;
Social Media posting – adhere to a strict plan and then move on!
Offline marketing including meet-up groups, one-on-one presentations, chamber meetings, drop card marketing.
Whether you do online or offline marketing, or a combination of both, you want to write out your tasks clearly and check them off as you go along during the day. Doing this concrete action plan daily will net you tremendous results; and you will see yourself transform into the leader you knew you could be.
There is also a technique I’ve heard many marketing guru’s speak of called the 60-60-30. That they do to get more accomplished in a shorter period of time. There are variations to it but it pretty goes like this.
For the next 7 days write down daily the 3 most important tasks that you need to accomplish. When thinking about them, ask yourself, “what’s the single most important thing that I can accomplish”.
At your most productive time of day, set a timer for 50mins, and do not answer the phone or check email. Absolutely no interruptions, then work straight through accomplishing these task until the timer goes off. Then for the next 10 minutes, take a walk, exercise, etc. but do not check the phone or email. Once your 10 mins. is up set the timer for 50 min. and work again. When the timer goes of this time, take your 10 min break and then set the timer for that last time for 30min. then work again.
Once this is accomplished you are finished for the day and you resume again the next day. This exercise is supposed to train you to get more concentrated work done in 2 ½ hours than you would in an 8hr workday.

All the Best!
