“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.”
– Fredrick Buechmer.
Our wonderful dreams are fragile and delicate in the beginning and you will know that your dreams can fade quickly if not handled correctly. I can remember being told recently to quit my dreams and throw out my computer, because it will never get me anywhere. However, I did not skip a beat, I just decided to never see that individual again.
Previously I would have listened to others people’s limiting beliefs and made them my own. However, I have built an inner fortress within me that has layers upon layers of motivation, self-belief, commitment and fearlessness.
There is a secret though, you must rebuild your inner fortress everyday if you want it to be strong and unbreakable.
Below I have 5 morning rituals for you to begin constructing your strong armour while your beautiful dreams and goals are being created inside the walls ready for unveiling into the world.
Begin with a grateful heart
When you coat your mind with beautiful thoughts about all the many ways you are blessed you can’t help but feel positive. The more positive energy you feel, the happier you become and in turn you will become a magnet for more exciting miracles and opportunities.
If you focus on lack and how your business is not growing as quickly as you had hoped or focussing on the debt building up, that is what you will find more of. Instead, focus on the incredible things within your life and visualise your dream business whilst feeling the exciting emotions bubbling within.
Feel yourself in the moment of bliss when you have to put your dream clients on a wait list, or waking up to sales spilling into your account. Whatever you are hungry for focus on that and feel the positive energy flow through your body.
Fill Up On Inspiration
We can run on empty throughout the day by taking on other people’s self doubt, negative energy or just feeling a little blah within. This is why it’s so important to refuel your mind and spirit each morning (and throughout the day). It’s a tough world out there so you want to get armed with motivation, passion and inspiration.
Read a page or two from an inspirational book. Listen to a podcast of your favourite Entrepreneur or business person while you’re brushing your teeth and getting ready for the day. Watch a motivational speaker on youtube while you commute to work. Any or all of these inspirational acts will fire you up and nothing or nobody will be able to stop you!
For me personally I take the motivational speaker Les Brown in my morning coffee. That man reminds me that I am unstoppable and force to be reckoned with!
Have A Dance Party
I take my phone with me into the bathroom while I’m in the shower I am dancing like Beyonce to some rocking tunes. I sing as loud as I can and I visualise backup dancers and a crowd of thousands watching me dance and sing (with clothes on of course).
The thing is, I feel sensational afterwards. My energy is now through the roof and I take this energy with me throughout the day. I’m strutting to a different beat then everyone around me, I have a smile on my face from thinking about my shower dance routine and life is blissful. The importance of this is to have fun in life, start your day with a fun attitude and you will have fun for the remainder of the day.
You will see countless people succeeding around you and you may be tempted to compare yourself to their success. You may feel disheartened and unenthusiastic about continuing on with your journey when you are not seeing the results you originally expected. But, if there is one thing I have learned it is that comparing yourself to others will not allow you to succeed and become the best version of you.
Begin your day by saying out loud who you are. Declare it out loud with passion and energy. Repeat this statement and say it loud enough for your haters, nay sayers and your inner mean girl to hear. “I am successful. I am fearless. I will conquer anything I put my mind to. I am extraordinary. I am the best in my field. I’m a miracle worker. I am love. I am peace. I am competent.” Then, everyone should step aside cause you have arrived, they will know it and you will now know it!
Don’t Quit Your Day Dream!
I can remember visualising my new car sitting in my driveway constantly to the point that I was convinced it would be sitting there. Well, my visualisations worked because my dream car now sits in my driveway!
It is so important to constantly be dreaming big about your desires and knowing they will come to fruition. Day dream about your desires every chance you get. Think about how it will feel to have your dreams in your life now. What will change for you? How does your life look like with your dreams in your reality? Don’t stop day dreaming until your dreams are in your life!
As Les Brown says “Don’t Quit Until You Win”.
Practice the above morning rituals for 30 days and commit to rebuilding your fortress each morning so that it is strong and unshakable.
Go after your dreams as though your life depends on it, because it does!
