Wake up early morning
Morning! By listening only, we are getting refreshment. So think what if you will wake up early in the morning – the more energy, more power and more positivity you will attract.
All famous successful people have a habit of waking up early in morning around 5 AM or even 4 AM. Not only they have more control on early hours but have more opportunity to complete the task that matter to them.
Even Lady Michelle Obama found greater success when she realized that she needed to see herself as someone worth making time for.
“If I had to get up to take care of my kids, I’d get up and do that,” she said. “But when it comes to yourself, then suddenly, ‘Oh, I can’t get up at 4:30.’ So I had to change that.”
Adopting of this morning habit can be lazy sometimes, but still there is one easy way that can help you out slowly. Set your alarm just 15 minutes before your waking time and continue practicing it. Finding time to take care of yourself in morning is the worthy investment.
Think positive and smile
Smile always bring happiness and happiness bring positivity which makes people less stressed and more productive. When you smile, a feel good hormone released, that refreshes your mood.
Some people feel trouble to getting themselves to smile in the morning without any reason. Just think of something which makes you feel good and bring a smile on your face. And if this is also not working than force yourself to smile, even a forced smile has benefits.

They know the value of fitness in their life. It not only fit your body but makes people mentally strong also. You also know that exercise is good for health, but still, can’t make time for it and ignoring. The health befits of exercising is vast, but the most important thing is that we attract positivity too. It maintains fitness level to makes you feel active whole day.
Some people feel that moving and twisting body can be stressful for them, so they drop the plan or continue to postpone. First of all, exercise means not to do heavy work out initially.

Numerous research has been conducted on meditation and its effects on human body and mind. No doubt that meditation is good for both, body and mind, but also fill your inner soul in peace.

Speak up you are grateful for
Be grateful for everything you have and appreciate them in your life, no matter how worsen your situation is. This attitude will enhance your inner strength to face and bring positivity in you.
After waking up say “Thanks to God” for this new morning. Expressing gratitude is one of the key factors that makes people feel “successful”.

When you feel grateful, you have everything with you. But when you are not, nothing can fulfill your desire.
I’m not telling that you should not aim higher or accomplish more in your life; I’m telling you that you should be grateful for everything that you have right now.
Get your notepad ready and plan your day
Planning is the important thing which shows how you want to spend your day and till what level you want to reach today. Adding planning in your morning habits will guide you, how to reach your goals.
Most people go through their day without much planning. They don’t know what exactly they need to do, and just wait for things to happen. This is a very common problem for people living an ordinary life. But if you will ask any successful people, they will reveal that planning is the first step towards success.
Ask yourself what you want? The things you want is something extraordinary then how come you can be reactive (wait for people to tell them what to do)? You should make yourself proactive (know what they should do, and always in action). Proactive people plan their day, and manage their time, as they know exactly what they need to accomplish during the day.
When you plan your day, and you know what you needs to get work done, you are one step ahead as you are ready and prepared for what will come next.
Create success list
After planning, what you exactly need to take care is making the list of important task, that how you are going to do that. The list should contain 3 to 5 task, but the most result yielding task of the day.
Most of the people create “To do list”, and spend their most of the time in completing them, no matter how long it takes. They will be like a very busy person whole day but the productivity will be zero at the end or insufficient results.
Instead of creating a to-do list, create a success list with the maximum result oriented pattern. Just don’t focus on getting things done, but focus on getting result yielding things done.
This is the difference between productive people and people who are busy but getting nothing.
So, plan your day each morning and made success list before day start and see the next side of your effective personality. I am sure you will feel the change that how adopting of this new morning habits is helping you to improve your work efficiency as most successful people do.
Visualize your success
Did u ever hear about vision boards? Vision boards is a visualization of the dreams and goals of your life. It also creates law of attraction.
Successful people always visualize their success. Morning is the best time (or you can do it at any time of the day) to envision about what you really want in your life. They always think about it and makes the plan to achieve it.
So make a vision board and start it from today by including it in your morning routine, as morning is the best and peaceful time to analyses your dreams.
Even research has proven that visualization works effectively when you visualize vividly, your brain works as if it’s true, and stimulate neurons to connect better. Even sports athletes incorporate visualization in their training.
In shorts, it doesn’t matter what’s going on in your success path, you have to just think about your achievement. This main difference that makes people extraordinary in their work is, they continue to think about their dreams and goal fulfillment.
Decide that today will be a great day
Every morning after waking up, ask this important question to yourself?
“If today was the last day of your life, would you still want to do what you’re about to do today?”
I am sure you would have gotten the answer to your question.
So decide that today is going to be a wonderful day of your life no matter how hard the situation is. And see the magic, your mind will search all the great thing throughout the day. Train your mind to search for great things every morning through declarations and affirmations.
