Hello, I’m Brian Tracy.
Today I want to talk to you about
some morning routines of successful people.
Few hours of the day are more important than the early morning hours.
One of the great thinkers said the first hour is the rudder of the day.
It sets the tone for everything else that happens.
These hours when you first wake up,
set the tone for the rest of the day affecting your mindset
and productivity during all the hours that follow them.
The importance of these early morning hours
is the reason why some of the world’s most successful people carefully craft morning routines,
designe to help them start the day off right,
and make the most of hours that follow.
If you would like to start each day in the best way possible,
consider implementing some of these proven morning routines into your morning schedule.
1. Plan your day the night before.
Planning out your day the night before
may not exactly be part of your morning routine,
but it’s a great way to get your day started off right.
In fact, I was just reading the story of a very successful
self-made multi-millionaire, multi business developer,
who said every single morning he starts off by reading his goals.
Every morning, he never misses a single day.
By planning out would you want to accomplish the night before,
you can start off each day with a planning mind
rather than waking up unsure,
what it is you want to tackle first.
Plan out your morning routine as well
as to what you want to do
when that routine is complete,
then wake up the next morning and put that plan into action.
2. Set goals for the day every morning.
Plan out your day the night before,
but set your goals in the morning.
For example, you may plan on working on the project all day,
那么 项目要完成多少 早上你就定好目标
then, that morning set a goal for how much of that project you want to accomplish of.
Setting goals in the early morning is an effective strategy,
since most people are ambitious when they first start their day.
If you set ambitious goals in the morning,
you feel more compelled more motivated to follow through with them,
as the day carries on.
3. Aviod checking your phone or other electric distractions.
One thing that should not be a part of a morning routine
is checking your phone or email as soon as you wake up.
At best, it’s a distraction that can
interfere with the rest of your morning routine.
At worse, it may relate disapointing news
that can kill your motivation at a time when you need to be firing it up.
Wait until the rest of your morning routine is complete
and the workday has started before you check your phone.
Julie Morgenstern, a time-management expert, wrote a book called
“Don’t check your email in the morning”
wait until 11:00 a.m. and work for three solid hours
before you check your email and then work another three hours before you check it again.
And only check it two or three times a day,
and in between turn it off and leave it off.

4.Stretch and exercise.
Studies have shown that people who exercise in the morning are
more likely to stick with the exercise routine
than those who exercise in the afternoon.
The reason is that when you wake up in the morning,
you’re refreshed and full of energy.
In the afternoon though, after a long day of work,
you may not have the energy or the motivation to exercise.
Streching and exercising in the morning,
also gets your blood flowing and gives you a burst of energy and adrenaline,
that will help you start the day off right.
We discovered in the studies of the self-made millionaires and multi-millionaires
that they all read one hour or more every morning.
In the same way that exercising in the morning gets your body up
and going, reading in the morning gets your mind up and going.
Whether you are reading the morning paper, a novel
or anything else that interests you,
the early morning hours are the perfect time
to get a little reading in before you go off to work.
My preference is always to read something that’s educational,
or motivational, or inspirational that gets you a little bit pumped.
Meditation is an excellent way to clear you mind,
and relieve any stress and help you focus on the task at hand.
It’s great for any time in the day,
but it’s especially benefitial in the early morning
after you have done your exercise
and you are woken up and your blood is flowing,
then just take a few minutes to sit quietly and let your mind calm.
Before you leave for work, take a time to sit in silence.
Clear your thoughts and focus on your breathing.
One of the easiest ways to meditate,
by the way, is just to focus on your breath
your diaphragm just below your stomach
and just think about your breath and count in.
一 二 三 四 五 六 七 一一数出
1 2 3 4 5 6 7, count out,
一 二 三 四 五 六 七 如此做七次
1 2 3 4 5 6 7, if you do this 7 times,
you’ll have a complete meditation session.
Not only will morning meditation help you enjoy all of the many
health benefits associated with meditation it will also enable you
to start the day with a clear, professed focus.
7. Spend some time with your family.
The morning may not offer much time for you
to spend with your family before they are out the door,
but you should take advantage of the time it does give you.
Sit down and eat breakfast with them if that is an option.
If it’s not, at least take the time to talk with them a little while
before you all go your separate ways.
There truly is no better motivation for the day
than spending a little bit of time with the ones
that you love the most.
Best of all, it will be a great motivation
for them as they start their day as well.
Before we wrap up, I’d like to leave you with a thought
to share with your friends and followers.
Your mind is like a muscle,
the more you use it, the more powerful it becomes.
Now, I’d love to hear from you.
