Your Mornings Should Set You Up for Success in Your Days
Posted: October 02, 2020
I have been studying the topic of success for almost 20 years now. I am extremely focused on seeing what other successful people do and modeling their behavior. It recently dawned on my just how many of those “successful” people are early risers.
One of the biggest commonalities they share is how they all cherish their morning routine. They found a set of practices that they do every morning that sets them up for success in their day.
While all of their routines are slightly different, there are many common themes amongst them.
Be the Person You Want to Be Right Now

I recently heard the story of a successful magazine entrepreneur, and how he reached such a high level of success.
When he was a young boy, his dad left his family, leaving only the boy and his mom to make ends meet in New Jersey.
The boy struggled at school, yet his mom wanted him to go to college. That meant the boy had to take the SAT’s. The boy was not very motivated to take the test since he was basically failing out of school.
Don't Confuse Activity with Accomplishment

When working towards a goal there are always certain tasks that are hard to do. It might be getting outside to run or going to class when you are supposed to. It could be getting up earlier to read, study, and plan your day out.
For kids, it might be getting your homework done on time or preparing for a big project that is almost due.
Goal achievement is hard work! We never want to confuse simply being busy with accomplishing important tasks.
Opportunities in Difficult Times

As the world continues to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, we are adjusting to a new way to live. There is a “new normal”. Social distancing, limiting group activities, and wearing masks are strictly enforced. We are forced to adjust our lives and perspective.
It’s easy to say the world is going to hell in a handbasket. There are a lot of crazy things going on. Rioting, protests, and overall frustration with what is going on in the world.
And the worst part is, no one knows when it will all end and when things will get back to normal. Some say it will get worse before it gets better. Time will tell…
Tap - Tap - Guard Up

Tap – Tap – Guard Up!
I had the privilege to train with one of the most successful Muay Thai trainers in the world about 10 years ago. His name is Master Toddy. He has trained over 40 World Champions, and he continues to turn out top quality martial arts champions on a regular basis.
When you train with him, he brings his own music. It’s a very unique, Thai style music with his voice on the track. You hear him throughout the track saying, “Tap. Tap. Keep your guard up.”
