Start Strong: Do What You Love Every Morning!
How incorporating something you love into your morning routine can boost your motivation and energy levels throughout the day.
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Albert Schweitzer
Starting your day on a positive note can be a powerful tool for motivation. By incorporating something you love into your morning routine, you'll set yourself up for success and create a habit that will help you stay motivated and energized throughout the day.
In this short post, I'll explore how you can use the power of pull motivation to jumpstart your day and keep your energy and motivation levels high.
Find Your ‘One Thing’
The key to building a morning routine that works for you is to find your ‘one thing’.
This is the activity that you're excited about. The thing that makes you happy, and that you look forward to doing every day. It could be anything from going for a run, to reading a book, to playing an instrument.
The idea is to choose something that is easy to do, but that also brings you joy.
By doing this one thing first thing in the morning, you'll create a sense of accomplishment and positivity that will carry you through your day.
Experiment and Adjust
Finding your ‘one thing’ may take some experimentation and adjustment.
You may need to try a few different activities before you find the one that really resonates with you. And it's okay if your routine evolves over time as your interests and needs change.
The important thing is to be flexible and open to trying new things. By doing so, you'll discover what works best for you and be able to fine-tune your routine for maximum effectiveness.
Make it a Habit
Once you've found your ‘one thing’, it's important to make it a habit. This means doing it consistently, every day, until it becomes automatic.
Habits are powerful tools for motivation because they remove the need for willpower.
When an activity becomes a habit, it no longer requires conscious thought or effort to do. It simply becomes something that you do, like brushing your teeth or taking a shower.
To make your morning routine a habit, start by doing your ‘one thing’ at the same time every day. Set a reminder on your phone or write it in your calendar to help you remember. And be consistent — even if you're feeling tired or unmotivated, do your ‘one thing’ anyway. Over time, it will become a natural part of your routine.
Ready for Success
Starting your day on a positive note can have a powerful impact on your motivation and energy levels. By finding your ‘one thing’, experimenting and adjusting your routine, and making it a habit, you can create a morning routine that sets you up for success.
Remember, the key is to choose something that you love and that brings you joy. By doing so, you'll create a positive feedback loop that will keep you motivated and energized throughout the day.
So take some time to think about what you're excited about, and make it a part of your daily routine. Your future self will thank you!
