Setting yourself up for a successful day starts before you get out of bed in the morning. No picking up your phone when you first wake up, and no letting your mind race a thousand miles per minute. You have to take control right out of the gate.
Below are 3 activities you can do daily to set yourself up for a successful day.Mindset
Your mind is one of the most powerful attributes you have, so use it to your advantage. Before your feet hit the floor, spend a few minutes breathing in deeply and exhaling all the way out to get the fresh oxygen in and the old oxygen out. Focusing on your breathing will assist in clearing the clutter from your head.Willingness
Being willing to take the time to do whatever it is that you need to do to set yourself up for a successful day is vital to your continued daily success. Willingness is the secret ingredient to all success; whether it's trying something different or learning something new, it all starts with opening your heart and mind.Commitment
Having a successful day is going to take action throughout that day. Make a mental commitment to give yourself a chance and not to give up too early when working towards your short term targets or long term goals throughout the day. Every great accomplishment starts with an initial commitment.
Remember, all the above daily activities for setting yourself up for a successful day, start before you get out of bed in the morning. If you get up and get started on your day, it's already too late, as your mind will already be racing. The key is to get out of the starting gate strong and smart.
