The power of a morning ritual

morning ritual

One of the most overlooked processes I have learned to creating a highly productive day, is the power of having a morning ritual.

If you have a desire to be highly productive in your business or really any area of your life, you must have a specific strategy to make this shift.

This is about creating a simple ritual. A ritual that uses your body, your mind and your ability to focus on where you desire your life to be.

That uses your ability to shift your language, so that these thoughts, feelings and emotions really do shift in a way that once mastered, will have producing high quality, intentional work.

If you look at successful individuals like Tiger Woods or Mark Cuban, or any great musician or a great business person or communicator… morning ritual

…anybody who’s the best in their field…

…they all have a morning ritual.

They’re not lucky, things don’t just happen for them. They have a way of triggering those key moments.

The state of mind, the emotion they felt and their performance for the final results they desire for each day.

Repetition is the mother of all skill.

My intention with this article is to show you that having a proactive plan for your morning, instead of being reactive to all the distractions around us, will have you crushing out your goals quicker than you think.

I am going to go through the exact process I have learned and consistently been applying to my daily habits that have conditioned me to be productive from the moment I wake up.

When you consistently apply these same principles to your life, you will become incredibly productive in your business every single day and will eventually have created a habit that will stick with you forever…

Why You Must Have a Morning Ritual

In order for you to create sustainable progress or reach any level of success, there are three things you must do.

Think of any area of your life where you are already doing well.

Maybe it’s your body or maybe your finances or career or whatever it may be…

…the first reason you are doing well, the most basic reason, is that you are focused on exactly what you are accomplishing.

You’re not focused on not achieving the desired result, or that you should maybe achieve the goal at some point. It is a MUST!

Try is not even a word in your vocabulary.

You’re crystal clear focused on what it is you want and simultaneously it is compelling you.

You are excited about what you are achieving which is triggering your focus and dedication to gravitate towards your desired result.

This simple, but very powerful insight is something I have learned having listened and applied Tony Robbin’s “Ultimate Edge” audio series multiple times. And when I mean multiple, I have listened to that series a minimum of 20 times.

By combining Tony’s course with Mr. Eban Pegan’s “Wake Up Productive” 90 day morning ritual course, I have learned some incredible skills that set me up everyday for high production.

What I am going to do here is reveal to you the exact process I practise every morning since having started my entrepreneurship working from home. I keep my mind proactive towards my daily business and personal goals. And not reactive towards all the distractions of everyday life.

Note: (I only cover the very basics here and what I do daily. If you are interested further visit Tony or Eban’s websites to find out more about their courses.)


This Is My Morning Ritual

8:00 am

Alarm goes off on my phone at 8:00am every morning (Keep my phone away from bed on my computer desk on the other side of the room so I have to get up). I wake up, jump out of bed & throw my phone against the wall so the alarm shuts off… :) (I shut it off gently)

Switch the alarm off & turn my phone on airplane mode so I have no distractions until I am finished.

Wash my face, go down stairs to the kitchen and drink a half a litre of water. (I drink 3-4 litres a day minimum, hydration is key to a functioning mind and body)


Exercise… Monday. Wednesday. Friday: 

30 minutes resistance exercise with Kettle Bells

Tuesday. Thursday. Saturday: 30 minute Walk & 30 minutes of Yoga


Shower. Shave. Brush Teeth. – So Fresh! So Clean!


Smoothie Breakfast – 1 Banana, 4-5 Leaves of Kale every other day, 1 Yogurt, 1 Cup Almond Milk. I add other fruit depending on the mood, sometimes a teaspoon of honey as well.


15-30 minutes practising gratitude. I write out 10 things in my life that I am grateful for every morning. Once written, I go back read each one and give thanks 3 times while visualizing each point. This will create an incredible focus and drive for your mind in the morning.

11:00am-1:30pm (Work 60mins – Break 30min – Work 60mins) For two hours I spend all my focus and dedication on the most important task that will make me money! Marketing my blog, tweaking my advertisements, emailing my list, or anything that will add value to my audience and in turn this creates my income. That is it…

morning ritual

I am highly productive for the first 5 and a half hours of my day. I could probably get away with just doing this everyday and still be able to live comfortably, but we all know comfortable creates chaos.

Now, you might be reading this and are thinking, “This is a lot to focus on and would be impossible to be on top of it everyday…”

Well one thing I know is guaranteed in life, is that repetition is key to mastery. This has to practised over, and over, and over again until it all becomes a habit.

Implementing one new habit every 30 days is known to be one of the quickest ways to creating change that actually sticks.

Because most of us try and tackle to many changes at once, get overwhelmed with in the first day or so and just shrug the old shoulders and say…

…”FUCK IT, it’s to hard to change.”

Exactly! You hit the nail on the head! Change is hard.

Change is a bitch sometimes!

If it wasn’t hard it wouldn’t be change. Resistance is a must in life. Resistance always creates change.

Like you, I have been through a lot in my life and some stuff I am definitely not proud of. But the one constant I am always thriving for is change!

One thing that I have taken from this entrepreneurship journey is…

…where we are right now in our lives, is a product of our best thinking up until this point.

Do not look to stumble over something that is behind you, FAIL FORWARD…

    Great tips in here. One that stood out for me in retrospect is that even though I already knew this, by going over it I am learning it all over again. And that’s more powerful than the first time.

    Hi there,
    I just wanted to say thank you for following, I truly appreciate it. Also that this post of a, “morning ritual” is so important and I didn’t realize how important a morning ritual was until about late last year. Since then, I’ve changed things and I find myself to be much more productive this way. Great post!

      Hello Linda. I enjoyed your post on L.A.! I am an amateur photography and loved the pictures your cousin had taken. The way you start your day will affect everything later on. The way you feel mentally and how much you will produce.

      I am glad you enjoyed my site and hope you come back in the near future.

    Hi and thanks for following my blog.
    I am a dedicated morning journaller and can only agree with you on the power of rituals – morning and evening – to keep myself focussed and balanced. Sometimes I wonder why I set aside such a chunk of time to them every day, but I know they work! I believe too in listing the things we are grateful for, it really helps to keep things in perspective. Especially through challenging times. It was nice to have the confirmation in your post here.
    All the best to you

      Hello Sarah! I could not agree more. Yes it does take some time, but if we don;t take time to focus on ourselves then how do you expect to give your all to everyone else? People get lost in thinking that this might be selfish but in turn this helps us give our full potential. Thank you for you engagement. I appreciate you and hope to see you around here.
