The Perfect Morning Routine

One of the best ways to learn how to become more accomplished is to look at the people in life who have accomplished the most and to try and emulate them. What are the secrets to their success?

Usually you’ll find that there are many answers to this question and many things you can learn. But one of the most consistent things you’ll find is that the successful individual has a morning routine.

This is what you will do first thing in the day when you wake up. It’s the perfect time to focus on yourself before life gets in the way and it’s the perfect way to ensure your day gets off to the right start. So, what does the ideal morning routine look like? Here are some ideas to start you off…

Exercise

Working out first thing in the morning will help to get the blood circulating and will release hormones that wakes you up. If you train before breakfast, you’ll burn more calories by training in a ‘fasted state’.

Meditation

Another thing you’ll find that many very successful people do is to start their day with meditation. Meditation is a fantastic tool for combating stress and helping yourself to cope better with the challenges that life faces you with. What’s more, is that meditation can help to boost your concentration and create more grey matter to improve your reasoning skills and working memory!

Gratitude

Gratitude exercises are very valuable for being happier and more effective. The problem is that many driven people forget to stop and take stock of what they’ve already accomplished or how good their lives are already. Instead, they only ever think about the things they have yet to accomplish and what they want next.

Spend five minutes in the morning then and write down three things that you are thankful for. These can be big things or small things. But simply by focussing on them, you will feel more content and happier and your work will be more fruitful.

To-Do List

Starting the day with a to-do list is an excellent way to enhance your productivity. It’s also a very good way to avoid feeling overwhelmed by the volume of things you need to do. Make a list of all the things that you absolutely must prioritize and then the things you’ll do if you can. Split your day into segments and then just work through each job one at a time!

How to Train Your Mind & Body to Focus on What Matters

If you’re going to achieve everything you can, then you need to learn to focus and to stay motivated. It is too easy for us to think of far-reaching goals and to work toward them, only to be distracted by cat videos on YouTube or by cake in the cupboard.

The problem is that the body is designed to keep us alive first and foremost. The attention network in our brain turns our attention to immediate threats and potential rewards such as food and sweets. It is much more interested in keeping us alive as opposed to helping us write a book or run a business.

So how do you take back control?

The key is to remind your body why the things you want to do matter and to find the emotional drive that comes from that.

Work is boring and it is hard for the brain to care about. But what is not boring is having a beautiful house and all the food you could possibly want. Being popular with the opposite sex and accomplishing a feeling of status and accomplishment.

You need to connect the work to the accomplishment and the sex.

And the way you do this is with visualization.

One of the best ways to think of the brain is as a simulation machine. Our understanding of the world is based on our experiences in it and our physical sensations. We move towards things that make us feel good and away from things that make us feel bad.

But then we evolved to realize that sometimes it makes sense to move towards something that makes us feel bad – so that we can feel good later. To accomplish this, the brain creates a representation of that reality in our brain and simulates the future in order to help us work toward a distant goal.

And when you visualize that future and simulate what you expect to happen, you use areas in your brain just the same as though you were really experiencing that thing. Picture yourself eating a cake and you will almost taste the cake as the relevant areas in your brain light up.

That imagined cake is therefore just as motivating as the real cake.

The problem is that when we are writing or entering data, the divide between the action and the goal is huge. It’s hard to connect the two.

So picture in your mind why you are doing this. Connect the dots and focus on the outcome. This will create an emotional hook and it will ensure that your mind and body are unified in their objectives.

Control Yourself Through Meditation

In hustle and bustle of life, our mind and body exhaust and resign to daily pressure and stress we face. Physical illnesses may be treated with medicines but soul, which controls our morale, motivation and happiness, cannot be cured with scientific measures. To evaluate your emotions and bring harmony to feelings, you must practice meditation along with other tasks of your life. It relaxes your nerves and muscles and brings peace to your inner structure, which allows greater efficiency in other activities.

Although it’s an intangible mechanism, sill there is some themes that are followed for each distinct technique of meditation. It starts with understanding your own self, the pattern of nature and how both work coherently to bring peace. So instead of beginning the meditation practices randomly, read about the philosophy and underlying rules of that particular activity.

Once you start believing in unseen structures, you get to step closer to the higher purpose of life. This allows you to stay composed regardless of present condition of your life. Meditation enhances control over feelings and allows you to utilize them for your greater benefit. The moment you become aware of your inner personality traits, you can behave in a more optimistic and constructive manner thus nurturing your social relationships. When your mind becomes healthy, it casts positive impacts on your body and you feel active and competent than before.

God has created this universe maintaining a perfect balance in everything. All natural elements have energy in them that keeps them functional. A human body also has energy reservoirs but we consume a large amount in carrying out our daily activities. Moreover our speedy life spoils our peace of mind hinders us from understanding the spiritual details of our own self.

The meditation process requires that you focus your energy and attention to one place and then use it as your power to overshadow your fears and disruption. The division of your mental capability renders disruption and personality disorders followed by pessimistic thoughts that ruin your career. The tenure of meditation process depends on the nature of spiritual ailment.

It can help you control your blood pressure and lessen your anxiety. You can also cure your immune system, which also help you to maintain resistance against drugs and other addictions.

Through this self-evaluation process you can quantify your intangible feelings and get aware of the root cause of any disorder. Diagnosis then gives way to healing and cure the soul that ultimately strengthens your personality. By getting aware of your inner powers and how these can contribute to the well-being of the society, you are in a better position to achieve your goals. In ups and downs of life you often come across such situations where you lose hope or temper and are inclined toward bad ways.

At these crucial moments, it is imperative that you are clear about your vision of life and can cope with emotional disasters in a more rational manner. Meditation teaches you how to grow poise and calm in your mind to counter-attack such optimistic in life.

What to Expect From Passive Income

Passive income is what a lot of people think of as ‘living the dream’. If you’re earning a passive income, that means that you’re making money from a website, a digital product or an affiliate product that you previously set-up. Now you can sit back and relax while the money comes pouring in! Potentially you can scale this business to become very wealthy but either way, you get to benefit from no longer trading your time for money!

But is it really like that? Are you really heading for a life-time of making money while you relax on beautiful yachts?

This is Not a Get a Rich Quick Scheme!

Maybe. But the first thing to acknowledge is that this is in no way a ‘get rich quick’ scheme. This is not a method you can use to make money without putting in the equivalent amount of work and time up-front. You are still working for your income, the only difference is that you’ve done this work ‘up-front’ as it were.

The other thing to recognize is that this takes a lot of time and a lot of trial and error. In the vast majority of cases, you should not expect to be making hundreds of dollars a day for a long time to come.

Instead, it will take time, work and a lot of patience to eventually get to that point. If you start your passive income business model thinking that you’ll be able to quit your day job right away, then you should expect to be very disappointed.

Instead, the best way to think about passive income, is as a good way to add a little bit of extra revenue to your existing set up. Try to think of ebook sales or clicks on adverts as ‘extra’ income and as a way to improve your overall salary.

This way, you won’t be disappointed even if you’re only making $20 in ebook sales a week. That’s still $80 a month and $960 a year – enough to go on a good holiday!

But more importantly, once you start making this money and you enjoy making that much, you’ll find that it starts to increase. If you don’t get quickly frustrated and give up on your passive businesses, then they will grow over time and start to make more and more money.

That’s how you successfully grow your passive income and it’s what will eventually allow you to give up your day job.

Endless Scalability

The other great thing about passive income models is that they are endlessly scalable. Because you aren’t trading man-hours for money, that means there’s no limit to how many times you can repeat the same business model over and over again.

Making a profit from selling an ebook on Kindle? Then why not make another? And another? And another? This way, you can multiply your sales over and over again.

And eventually, you’re almost sure to land on that ‘big hit’ that will be your real cash cow. It takes time, it takes patience and it takes luck. But it’s worth it!

3 Things You Should Know About Having a Home Business

There are so many people joining the home businesses but it is so unfortunate that many of them are not coming out successful. This is because they did not find the guidance which is needed so as to start a home business and maintain it. There are those people who have tried and given up because they do not think it is a great idea, whereas there are those who have started following the right procedures and have been very victorious. There are also those who have tried and failed but they did not give up until they started to be successful. This is because they did a lot of research and found the basic tips of succeeding in home business. The victory has really changed most of the people’s lives.

The first thing that you are supposed to know about home business is that success does not happen within a night. Many people think that they should become rich within a very short period of time with their home business. The reason as to why so many people want to get rich quickly is because of the get rich scams which are out there. This is because they make everyone to believe that any home business is like a con and this is a lie. The truth is that success in home business does not come within days and so during this period you will get so many negative thoughts. The thing that you should avoid is the negative thoughts crowding your mind.

The second thing is that success does not come without any efforts. Just like those other works, home business requires hard work. You cannot just sit and expect money to flow in your account. When you consider how much you miss when you are employed to starting a home business and running it, then there is no hard work there. Being your own boss is the best thing that anyone can think of even if you are doing everything alone. This is because it is the fruits of your hard work. Success only comes about after you have worked on your skills and confidence. You cannot be successful without working hard and the maximum is working your business. The faster and harder you work the faster you become successful.

For you to be successful you must also be disciplined. When you are running your home business you should be very strict with time. You should learn to say no to some things and also friends. In most companies people work because they are being supervised but in home business you are your own boss.
