Feel free to grab a pen and paper ready to take some notes because I'm really going to be sharing the things that have made the most difference in my life.
Have you ever experienced this hustle and bustle in the morning…
… you wake up and you jump in the shower
…the you go to get breakfast with the kids
… soon you're going to be ready to get out of the door
… you're dragging yourself and the kids out to get to school
… and before you get to your desk to sit down and actually begin your work you’re already stressed.
You’re already sweating, you’re already having heart palpitations or all sorts of things are happening and you haven't even begun your day.
Well that was me! I’d start my day already exhausted.
I’ve spent a lot of time planning and thinking of what exactly I have to do to make our mornings much more easier, much more calm so that I have all the energy that I need to have a successful day.
The big change:
So here are five things that I've been doing in the mornings that have really really given me that big massive smile every single morning and throughout the day.
So the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is to pray, pray, Pray!
I pray because I'm incredibly grateful and I know that my life isn't in my hands
I pray to be thankful to God for who I am and where I am and where I have come from.
I'm not yet where I want to be but Lord knows I'm not where I used to be, I've got a long way to go but I am enjoying this process.
So, prayer has really helped me to just take things off my plate and just the thought of knowing that there is a greater person than me who is actually looking after me and my family and looking after that Journey is just so amazing!
So the first thing I do is pray.
So here's a question for you: ‘Do you pray’?
Do you believe in a higher power?
Whatever it is that you believe in, I really encourage you to start your day by praying and it just really, really puts you in that frame of mind of knowing that you are loved, you are protected, you are under the guidance, you are covered in so many ways, I really could keep going but I really should get to #2
This is one of my favorite things in the morning and that is my Affirmations.
Oh my goodness.
When I first started doing my affirmations I felt like a crazy woman, honestly. I'd be right there in my office, walking up and down, my kids are next door trying to sleep and I'm pacing up and down the room and I'm going…
“I’m the most highly paid speaker in the world. I book paid speaking gigs every single day. My business makes multiple seven figures every single day. I have enough money to put a hundred children through private school and not have to bat an eyelid.
I know, I have crazy things on my affirmations, I don't even know how many I have.
A typical example is at the beginning of 2018 when I said to my friend, “I really want to do more Speaking. I want to get into speaking and I really believe that I will be a power to speak on stage”
This was a huge desire of mine but I was so afraid because I'd never spoken on stage. I've done lots of acting as you probably know, I'm an actress but I'd never spoken on stage as ‘me’.
I'm very good at being ‘other people’, which is what acting is, but being just myself and stepping out on stage, that was tough.
However, the moment I built this desire into my affirmation, would you believe that for the whole of 2018, I spoke so much to the extent that I had to actually turn away speaking opportunities because it became too much.
Your words are powerful
Whatever it is that you want, you’ve got to learn to speak it! Speak it to your hearing.
It’s not just about ‘thinking’ it, you’ve got to SPEAK it into being because the moment those things come out of your mouth you send it into motion into the universe and everything starts to work for you.
Your words are so powerful… If you use them WISELY.
3. A Gratitude Journal
I’m not a huge fan of journaling but I’d been reading a lot about it.
The last time I kept a journal or rather, a ‘diary’ was in school and you don’t want to read those diaries. My diaries were full of negative things every time.
So to me my journaling was just so horrible because I associated it with writing the things that were NOT going well in my life and these are things that I never want to read about again.
However in the last couple of months a few things have happened in my life that I made me want to revisit journaling. But this time I made it a gratitude general.
So I bought myself on a fun book. It's pink and it's gorgeous and I just every single morning I just sit there and I write things that I am grateful for and I cannot explain how magical it feels and how amazing and beautiful it is to just remember the things that you are grateful for.
Don’t take the easy route!
It’s easier to remember things that aren't going well in your life but you’ve got to make an extra piece of effort to put more of your attention on the things that ARE going well by simply writing them down over and over and meditating on those things throughout the day.
So as I drive around throughout the day, as I go about my business, as I spend some time with my kids, ll I'm remembering all the things that I am grateful for.
And by being grateful, more things happen to me that I am then grateful for.
Gratitude delivers more things that you ought to be grateful for. So if you walk around your day talking about things or thinking about things or speaking things that you are grateful for, guess what happens, MORE things begin to happen that you will be grateful for.
Why? Because it’s a ricochet effect. It just grows. It just develops and the more grateful you are, the happier you are, the more joy you have in your life.
So if you’re trying to develop a morning routine I highly highly recommend that having a gratitude journal is a huge part of it.
4. Practice Mindfulness
I've only recently started to read all about mindfulness and that is because my BFF bought me a book on mindfulness for Christmas (Love you Palesa X)
One of the great things that I love about mindfulness and what I’ve started to put in my routine is ‘just being in the moment’. Being in the friggin moment!
Have you ever been in the shower and your mind is somewhere else, you're thinking about your to do list and all the many things that you are still yet to accomplish and all the things that are waiting for you to do in your day?
Yup! That used to be me too!
Mindfulness is all about being in the moment right enjoying where you are right now.
So for example, if you’re driving, try to enjoy that moment. Notice the trees, the other cars on the road, the people, the birds, the things happening all around you and enjoy that moment.
If you’re speaking with a friend, enjoy that moment with that friend. That's not what most people do. What most people do is when somebody else is talking they're not listening, they are ‘listening to speak’. They're thinking “now what do I say in return now”.
That isn't being mindful! Being Mindful is just being still and enjoying whatever moment you’re in.
5. I Outsource tasks
The 5th thing that I do is probably one of the most crucial things that I do as part of my morning routine and that is that I ask myself one critical question:
“What can I outsource”
A lot of people take pride in filling up their day with lots of things to do. They want to be busy busy busy and hustle hustle hustle. I don't think that that's how to run a business.
Being a Lucrative Lady is all about having a Lucrative Lifestyle Business and that is a business that fits with your life.
In my life I prefer to spend time with the people that I love – my children, my husband and my family and friends and just to actually enjoy life as opposed to chasing money because money WILL come.
Money is in abundance!
You really have to believe that.
But in order to achieve my goals, I have to have things that help me. That's why I have to have systems and tools and processes and software and a team in place.
The biggest game changers in my business as far as tools and softwares go are:
My CRM (Customer Relationship Management) – Convertkit
So a huge part of my morning routine is actually about thinking
‘What do I have to outsource’
‘What can I automate?’
‘What can I take off my plate?’
‘What can I delete totally?’ so that I can truly be living my best life now.
So there you have it.
Those are the five things that I do every single morning to kick start my day.
I'm not perfect, I'm far from it and it's taken me some time to develop a good morning routine and I've actually developed an evening routine which I will share with you in another post. But this is a great way for you to start your day.
And even if all you did was choose one of those five things to do in your morning and to do it consistently you will see a great result
