So let’s explore the five habits successful people practice before sunrise.
Habit #1: Journaling
Journaling is something that’s been around for over 11 centuries. The only way something sticks around for that long is if it’s serving a purpose.
Countless super successful, entrepreneurs, politicians and celebrities have talked about their extensive use of journaling. And there’s a reason why it’s so popular among the uber successful.
Journaling gives you the opportunity to clarify your thoughts. When you feel overwhelmed by your emotions and feel that your mind is moving at a thousand miles an hour, in a thousand different directions, the journal gives clarity.
And once you have clarity, you act with more precision and take more meaningful action.
Habit #2: Exercise
Barack Obama has stated on several occasions how important his morning exercise is, often times waking up with his wife at 4:30am to squeeze in a workout.
Regardless of your political affiliation, I think we can both agree that becoming President of the United States qualifies you as somewhat of a success.
Exercising in the morning gives you the energy boost you need to not only make it through the day, but to do it in the most productive way possible. It’s been proven that exercise increases both your focus and cognitive performance for any difficult task you might face during the day.
With a beefed up brain (and biceps) you’ll have an unfair advantage of whatever obstacles are sent your way.
Habit #3: Identify Your “Big Wins” For the Day
Being busy doesn’t equal being productive. But unfortunately, so many people mistake having a full calendar with doing things that actually matter.
How many times have you laid down at night, exhausted from all the stuff you did, but still feeling unfulfilled because none of the “stuff” you did was important? You just woke up, and started working without any real plan of what you should be working on.
