Daily rituals are the major reason that super successful people are super successful. It’s not by chance or luck that they get the results they get, and they definitely don’t have more time on any given day than you or me.
But somehow seem to have this amazing ability to do it all. Below I have identified 5 rituals that appear in the majority of super-successful people.
1. They Meditate Every Day
Meditation is so powerful for clearing the mind, increasing focus, and being more centred.
Research also shows meditation increases sleep, reduces stress, increases productivity, builds better relationships… The list goes on.
Many super successful people throw in a minimum of ten minutes of meditation daily.
2. They Get Up Early
This universal daily ritual seems to be found in every super successful person, with some rising as early as 3:30 am.
Even if you just rise 30-60 minutes earlier than usual, the amount of productivity you can bring to your day is huge.
If you want to get in the same pond as the big players, you won’t do it staying in bed.
3. They Usually Exercise Daily
Daily exercise, especially morning exercise, seems to be ranked as highly as getting up early for many super successful people.
Some use this time to fire up their metabolism, others to focus on the day ahead.
Many say that morning exercise really helps to kickstart their day.
4. They Don’t Leave The Day To Chance
Super successful people don’t let the day control them; they control the day. The average person is now distracted every 11 minutes, so finds it very difficult to stay creative.
Super successful people protect their time. This allows them to stay creative and not just react to the day’s events.
5. They Usually Read… Lots
Many super successful people read approx 4/5 books EVERY month; that’s more books than the average person reads every year.
Super successful people have the desire to grow and see books as a great resource for other people’s experience and knowledge.
