Good morning. Another Monday morning is here. Are you ready?
I hope so, because if you are not, life is. And when life comes for you, like it always seems to do when you least expect it, it will run you over. With that in mind, think about the following:
“Listen. I wish I could tell you it gets better. But, it doesn’t get better. You get better.” - Joan Rivers
As Joan Rivers famously implied during a cameo on a 2011 episode of the TV show “Louie,” life happens for us, not to us. We are all victims or creators. Victims get crushed, while creators find the purpose and the gift. Creators find the way to move forward and grow. Creators exude gratitude and positive energy. And because of this, creators live fulfilled lives.
So how do you make sure you’re a creator and not a victim?
Success doesn’t come from intellectual genius or luck. Success comes from habits and routines that encourage growth.
Start by owning the morning. Strong morning routines put you in power by balancing your mind and body.
When your mind and body are in the right place, you win the day. Every day. Nothing can knock you off course when you are ready for anything. The most successful people in history were all backstopped by amazing morning routines and rituals.
Every day, we each get to make a choice: Do we want to live life to the max, magnificently and fulfilled? Or do we want to walk through life unconsciously, like zombies? I challenge you to seek out the most magnificent and fulfilled life possible.
Maximizing your life requires a journey that starts from within. Continue to challenge yourself and seek growth in all areas of your life. Start your day early, develop powerful routines and habits around your mental and physical well-being, and focus on balance in all areas of your life.
