Key Ideas

Morning meeting with yourself

Make time in your calendar for a meeting with your inner self. 

Find a space that is free of distraction and set it up with tools such as an uplifting book, a pen, and a notebook.

Read something that inspires you

Spend your first few minutes reading something that inspires you for success.

Write a gratitude letter

Use the next 10 minutes to write about the good things you have in your life. Also, write about what you want as though you already received it. Your mind will find ways to resolve the dissonance, making your statement true.

Read your gratitude letter out loud

When you read something out loud, you make it stick in your subconscious, allowing you to notice more possibilities to make our statements true.

Visualize reaching your goals

Spend about five minutes visualizing your goals achieved. What will it look like? What will it feel like?

Listen to your subconscious mind

Your whole morning ritual should take around 25 minutes. When you have completed it, start your day.

Understand self-sabotage

Self-destructive behaviors can become habits and can continually undermine your success and happiness.

Self-sabotage is when we want something, but somehow we never accomplish it, because somewhere deep in our subconscious we’re fighting against that goal:

  • Our disorganization distracts us.
  • We’re constantly overthinking all of our decisions.
Recognize self-sabotaging habits
  • Procrastination. Start setting deadlines and mini-deadlines to work toward your objective.
  • Negative self-talk/negative thinking. Be patient with yourself; be kind to yourself. Work to build yourself up.
  • Perfectionism. It is an impossible standard that keeps you from moving forward.
