Last time I share the first two steps of my morning routine: 1 – drink water and 2 meditate, click to read this article.
The third thing is, affirmations. Now, you may be asking, “What’s an affirmation?” In this case, an affirmation is a statement that is declared to be true. I like my affirmations to be in present tense, personal and positive. I’ve got a whole stack of them (about 50 or so). I’ve written them down, one on each note card. And every morning, after mediation, I go through each one. A few of mine are:
- “My body and immune systems are strong and ward off all disease and any entity that can cause my body illness; including COVID 19, Hemochromatosis, the flu.” And whatever I can think of that could possibly hurt me. Right?
- “I am reliable, dependable and honorable.”
- “I am a great teacher and leader.”
- “I’m a responsive, caring, loving husband and father.”
- “I love my body and do only healthy thing to keep it strong and healthy.”
- “I love people.”
- “I’m responsible.”
- “I am valuable, and I value myself.”
- “I’m a great team leader and encourage and allow and inspire others to lead.”
- “I’m a huge, loving, spiritual being.”
- “I create financial security and abundance for in my family.”
So, whatever your affirmations are, write them down. You don’t need 50 of them. Start with five, that’s fine.
It’s important to spend a few minutes each day reading them out loud. You need to feel them and say them. Why? Well, because your brain is elastic, right? It’s called neuroplasticity. The more times you repeat something, it begins to formulate as a permanent thought in your brain. It’s not just a fleeting thought, okay? You start responding differently. You, you start acting differently. You start setting yourself up to win. That is what happens.
Step four, have a seat, gently close your eyes, take a deep breath, and visualize. Visualize your day. What do you want your day to look like? For me, I want to record six videos today. I plan to spend some time with my son today. Um, I’m looking forward to talking to my sister this afternoon. I picture a million dollars sitting in my bank account. I live in a beautiful new home, in a great neighborhood. I look forward to having all my friends around me most of the time.
And it’s okay if you visualize the same or similar things again and again. If more come to mind, good. Maybe your visualization will take a little bit longer, but just allow yourself to see it, feel it and hear it. Okay. Every day. Whatever, it is you want to accomplish, visualize it!
Now number five is exercise. I work out regularly with my fitness GURU, Mack Newton at 10:00 AM Phoenix, Arizona time. And by the way, you can go online and work out with Mack too.
For information, go to https://www.macknewton.com/. If you want to try a workout, he offers a Seven-minute workout (under Resources Tab, Video Vault). You can handle seven minutes. As one of the people in the front row, we did this a few years ago. It is a simple, fast-paced workout. Now, if you feel strong after completing seven minutes, then do two of them. Feel strong with that? Do three of them, then, four or five of those seven minute workouts back to back at the minimum. But, start with one seven minute workout. If you haven’t worked out at all. Do some stretching, get your body flowing. Get, get the blood moving. Exercise is critical to good thinking and high mood levels.
I’ll share the last few steps next week.
So after the exercise, then what you do is you read now you read something spiritual. Okay. So for me, I, one of the things I have is this one called the daily stoic and what it is, it’s it’s quotes each day of the year. There’s a quote in here. So let’s see today, May 11th. Okay. What’s the thought for today? This is by Seneca. One of the ancient Roman Stoics. He said the greatest portion of peace of mind is doing nothing wrong. Hmm. The greatest portion of peace of mind is doing nothing wrong. Those who lack self-control live disoriented and disturbed lives. Okay, good. And then there’s a whole explanation here. Consider the fugitives willingly, turn themselves in. After years on the run, why would they do that? They were free one step ahead of the law, but they gave up. Why? Because the guilt and the stress of the Fugit of life eventually gets worse than the prospect of lost freedom.
In fact, it was its own kind of prison and more of that. So I, I loved the read. So I have that, uh, I read a little of at, Caroli see what at cartel, what I read today, uh, presence, presence being present is a state of inner spaciousness. When you are present, you ask, how do I respond to the needs of this situation in this mode? In fact, you don’t even need to ask the question. You are still alert, open to what is you bring a new dimension into the situation space. Then you look and you listen, thus, you become one with the situation. When instead of reacting against the situation you merged with it, the solution arises out of the situation itself. Okay? So I love to fill myself with inspirational stuff from other people. You don’t, again, you don’t have to read a lot, just like one page, two pages, three pages. You could do this whole, you could do this without the exercise. You could do this whole thing in like 15, 20 minutes. Um, when I’m really, when I’ve got the time, I’ll spend an hour doing it, not counting the workout. Okay? Um, here’s one becoming a good apprentice.
You do not seek to have before you be, or before you do, this is quite the opposite of most people who demand high salaries and numerous benefits. Even though they lack competence and knowledge in the area who have some perverted fixed ideas, such as the universe owes me a living, or you know me, you owe me, this is the height of criminality because it violates reciprocation, spiritual knowledge and skills. Last, an eternity and identities are a person’s knowledge and skills last all only a few years, spiritual knowledge is forever. Okay. Read.
And the last thing is, describe is describe, is to do some writing. One thing I learned that all successful people keep journals. And so the simplest journal you could do is, is what I do, which is just a very simple gratitude exercise. Okay? So gratitude exercise.
So here’s the gratitude exercise. I’ll give it to you right here. It is. Number one. What are your goals for the day? You write them down? I said today, I said, I have a, I wanna to have a good day with many videos completed and to close several open loops in my business. Number two, what am I willing to give to others today? I’m giving presence, peace, energy, wisdom, and love today. That’s what I plan to give today. 10 things that I’m grateful for right now. Number one, now presence. Love health, energy, spiritual teammates, family, friends, wealth. Okay. Number four. What am I grateful for that someone else does for me? Well, I’m grateful to my team. I’m grateful on my team, both locally and globally for maintaining our business and for expanding our mission around the world. And number five, what am I happy about?
Well, I’m happy to give value. Uh, I’m happy to give value to other people that are looking to improve their lives. That’s what I’m happy to do today. Okay. So that’s it now at, at tonight? What, when I go to bed, the, the back part of that is how did I do on my goals? Number two, what did I give to others today? Number three, what am I happy about tonight? And I make a list of all my wins. I make a list of all my, all my wins that I it’s accomplished through the day. Then I go to bed. That’s my routine. That’s my morning routine. Now again, I spent some extra time to explain it to you. So maybe you took some notes. Maybe you wanna copy it a little bit. Um, I’m happy to have you do that. Why? Because one thing I’m, I’m gonna guarantee you this.
If you can follow this process, even as in its most abbreviated format, if you can follow this format for at least seven days, not 70, not seven months, but seven days, here’s what’s gonna happen. You’re gonna notice some different things happening in your life that are very positive. You’re gonna know. So you’re gonna find yourself a little bit more in the right place at the right time. Uh, people are gonna be bringing, being attracted to you in a very positive way. You’re gonna find that all of a sudden your luck is begun to turn positive a little bit more. Would that be used to you? I think it will. Now don’t ask me why that happens. I’m sure some of you have some great ideas as to why that happens. It’s the law of attraction says what you know, says that as your being, this gets bigger, you attract more.
But what you attract is not always positive. Why is it positive with this is because the beingness that you’re putting out is all positive, positive, more positive, and you’ll attract more. Okay. So again, have a great day, have a day that you want. I call it sacred time. Why? Cuz nobody messes with it. No matter how early I gotta get up, no matter how late I went to bed, I gotta spend time sacred time before I go to my phone. Okay. I’m not gonna be looking. I I’m not gonna let the world dictate to me how my, how my life is gonna be today. I’m gonna dictate that myself and you should too. Okay. Even if you can, even if you are pressed on time and you only got five to 10 minutes to run through it, that’s five to 10 minutes well worth spent.
Okay? So that’s my morning routine. Those of you sport. Now you got it.
