How To Build Your Own Success Rituals

After you have identified the rituals that you currently have, your next step is to assess what rituals you really need to practice. Then, it will be time to build your own success rituals.

You cannot build your own success rituals if you are not aware of what is that you need to be doing to ensure you become successful in your given field. If you actually want to become successful, then you must find out what rituals those who are successful in your given field have. Then, based on the information that you have garnered, you will build your own success rituals.

I believe it can be comfortably said that the majority of successful individuals are always out of bed before the sun rises. With that said, the first ritual that you should build is ensuring that you are also out of bed before the sun rises.

A guru of productivity Benjamin Franklin stated:

“Early to bed, and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”

Let me examine the benefits of rising early in the mornings:

1. There is just something about the dawn of a new day, before the sun makes it appearance in the sky that fills your inner vessel with a lot of hope. Not even the polluted air, which is often found in urban regions, can eradicate that morning whiff of hope, even if you just open a window in your home to take a swift, deep breath of it.

2. A second benefit of rising early in the mornings is that you do not have a lethargic feeling, which typically comes with rising after the sun has risen.

3. You can get a lot more done during a day by having an early start.

4. The peacefulness of the morning gives you a chance to filter your thoughts more accurately and make better plans.

So you have mastered the task of getting up early, that is great; however, you must use your time productively.

The best part of becoming wealthy is to know that you had done so while maintaining or with no comprise to your health.
To maintain or not to compromise your health, you will have to watch what you consume and ensure that you do at least half an hour of physical exercise each day or for a minimum of three days per week.

Most of the successful individuals have incorporated exercise into their daily routine; therefore, the next morning ritual that you should develop is exercise.

Exercise is important to get your body in shape, but it also helps with developing a healthier mind for you to function better. Exercising, as you know, is only a part of the process to keep healthy. You also have to eat healthy if you want the exercise to work efficiently.

Exercising and eating healthy is one way that you might cheat death to live a little longer so you can enjoy your wealth.

So I am sure it is worth taking the shot at having a healthy lifestyle.

The aspiration to become the best at what you do is something that you must take into consideration when you are building your rituals. The great inventor and co-founder of Apple Steve Jobs said:

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

You should consistently brainstorm for ideas that will improve the plans you already have, and what will uniquely set you apart from others. Whoever is the best in the market will also amass the most success.

Allocate time to cover all areas of your life. You need to find the time to exercise, meditate, make your schedule, and for work. You need time to have fun with your family and friends.

Start creating your own opportunities for success by ensuring you have some highly successful individuals in your circle.

You already know that success is something that you have to work to obtain. So you have to not only think like those who are best but start talking, dressing and acting like you are the best too. That is a sure way of setting up yourself to become the best in your given field.

 

What’s The Impact Of A Thought In Our Life Or In Our Mind?

It is never too late to find new rituals or to improve on those you are currently practicing. We all have rituals, but the question that you need to ask yourself is:

“Are my rituals empowering me or are they disempowering me?”

Make a list of your daily rituals that you have been doing over the past ten years. Analyze the outcome of each of these rituals. From your analyst of the habits that you have developed over the time, how did they assist you in progressing to your desired goals? How has your daily routine affected your relationship with your family and your friends?

If the answers to the above questions are ones, which clearly state that your habits have generated only a negative or mostly negative impact in your life, then it is evident that you have disempowering rituals. It is time to change those disempowering rituals to empowering rituals.

The Power Of Your Thoughts

You have the power to change your thoughts, which will eventually influence your actions.

Every one of your actions came about because of a thought that you had initiated. Whether that idea came about consciously or it was a subconscious thought.

To create empowering rituals you will have to learn how to reprogram your mind.

To accomplish the reprogramming of your thoughts you first have to find an empowering ritual that you will be using to replace the disempowering one.
Start your day with the right attitude, full of energy and refreshed with ideas. When your day gets off to a good start, you will be able to use your time more productively. We all have the same twenty-four hours in our day but how we structure our activities for the day can make a lot of difference.

Let’s take a look at some disempowering rituals that you might be practicing, and were not aware that they are not empowering you.

Nine Common Disempowering Rituals:

1. Getting out of bed long after the sun has comfortable settle itself in the sky and have provided great warmth for the Earth.
2. Lack of physical and mental exercise.
3. Unhealthy eating habits, which are leading to degenerative and other fatal health issues.
4. Your time is used for reading and watching the wrong kind of materials, which cannot assist you to achieve your ultimate goals.

5. The individuals that we interact with on a daily basis influence our thought process a lot more than we often realize.

You will not find any successful people hanging out on the side of the street speaking to a group of individuals that only hangs out on the street every day unless they are doing some kind of community outreach program.

Gossiping on the telephone for hours would be considered unnecessary spending and valuable production time lost for a successful individual. If you keep spending most of your time with unproductive people, then, eventually you will become sterile.

Make sure that you are not wearing the label of an unsuccessful person. Evaluate your acquaintances. If you associate yourself with people who are thriving for success or who are already successful, then, you will be motivated to change your lifestyle to be more in line with the successful people whom you are now associating yourself.

Now, I am not saying that you should stop speaking to your friends if they are not productive. I am merely suggesting that you associate with them less and find more individuals that share similar success vision as you do. Successful people associate with other successful individuals.

6. Never making any plans for your day, you just go with the flow of any events. If you are not making plans to achieve, then you have quickly set yourself up for failure. So do not be surprised when you reap failure’s results.

7. Poor time management. You might have made plans for your day, but you spent too much time conducting rituals that unproductive.

8. No form of academic improvement.

While it is true that most of the world’s wealthiest individuals might not have a master’s degree, they continually educate themselves through daily reading of books or by watching various videos that will assist them in improving their skill sets.

9. The poor allocation of your finances is a disempowering ritual.

Investing your money in things that cannot return a profit on your dollar will not let you become rich. It is nice to have a fancy car, beautiful clothes, and dine at the best restaurants, but these must only be a reward for the assets you have a mass through your hard work.

Living like the rich and famous when your bank account along with your wallet is still living in poor man’s land, is a perfect example of you allocating your funds poorly. All the finer things of life that you want to enjoy now will still be available when you have mastered your success rituals, and you are financially capable of living life as a wealthy and famous individual.

Six Empowering Rituals

1. Exercise – your greatest wealth will always be your health.

You should never sacrifice your health to achieve wealth. Your wealth will never truly restore your health, and you might not even live long enough to enjoy your success.

2. You must eat healthily and ensure you have adequate rest.

3. Get up early in the mornings.

A great ritual that you must develop is to get out of bed early in the mornings. Creating a great head start to your day and life begins with you getting up early.

4. Make plans in your journal for the following day before you go to your beds at nights and evaluate activities of your day.

5. Find time to unwind and meditate. Spend some quality time with those you love.
6. Invest in yourself by increasing your knowledge about the field that you are in, and also learn how to spend your money wisely.

Consistently, assess how your current asset can be allocated to allow you to earn more in different areas.

 Here is an excellent food for thought as you make plans to educate yourself:

“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” Jim Rohn

What you do daily influences your life.

If you rituals are disempowering, the, you will never yield positive or favorable results. On the contrary, if you rituals are empowering, then, you have a greater possibility of achieving some form of reward.

Success starts in your mind, with the thoughts that you are forefront in your head because those thoughts are what will eventually empower your daily actions.

Take a bit of advice from a woman who has dragged herself from the gutter of poverty to stand proudly among the wealthy, Oprah Winfrey stated:

“What we dwell on is who we become.”

David Koch, the tenth billionaire on the Forbes Billionaires list. David Koch shared his five tips for you to start learning from those who are rich.
Below are David Koch’s five tips:

1. Creating wealth through earnings and not saving.

Successful individuals like David Koch continuous thoughts are how to earn big money and how to expand their potential profits. If you are not significantly increasing the sum of money that you have, then, there is a good chance that your savings will not make you a wealthy person.

2. Never be afraid to believe in your ability, and you should take smart risks.

Many individuals refuse from taking risks because of the possibility exist that they might fail. However, those who are successful know that you have to take risks both financially and in your personal life if you want to earn significant rewards. Successful individuals also accept that failure is the price you pay for your ultimate learning experiences and you must develop the confidence to continue after you have failed.

Their positive attitude in every opportunity contributes to achievements in their business ventures and also to their wealth.

Dispel the belief that the time you spent working hard will be equivalent to your level of success.

Smart working means you strategize your time wisely, how you utilize your assets for them assist you to increase your earnings. You should aspire to become an expert in your field, no matter what field of business you are working.
If your greatest desire is to disengage yourself from the grip of poverty, then you should adopt the rituals of the wealthy, be fearless, and have absolute confidence in your abilities. Believe that you deserve to have all the best that life has to offer.

 

How Successful People Achieve Greatness?

You want to become successful?

You can feel that there is more to life than what you are presently enduring?

It has crossed your mind more than once that maybe you are doing things the wrong way?

You need a new approach to ensure you give life your best shot at becoming one of the individuals that history can never forget. You can make your indelible mark on the line of history as a successful person by trying some Success Rituals.

You are right about needing an approach to attain success.

I will share with you some steps that successful individuals conduct daily and some that you might want to implement in your life.

The natural order of life is that things go through stages.

Take for instance the process that it takes to create a child. In the womb, there are a series of steps, and after birth, there is another. Nevertheless, each child develops at a different pace. Some kids walk or talk before what is considered the “expected time” for them to do so.

Success Rituals are processes that individuals endure to become prosperous.

Achievements during the stages are different for everyone. However, there are similarities in each stage of the Success Rituals, just as how there are similarities in the stages to produce a child, but the outcome differs.

Success Rituals have certain fundamentals that every successful individual had to do, and some which they had to learn how to overcome. Likewise, you must decide without any form of doubt that you too will have to work hard and overcome whatever obstacles you will encounter on your journey.
You might be the one that will develop before the expected time frame for one to become a success.

Do not delay for another minute. It is time to discover empowering Success Rituals, which will assist you to conquer your fears and progress on your destined journey of prosperity.

Success Rituals Fundamentals.

Do not be scared of the word rituals. Ritual is just a synonym of the word habit.

We all know that our thoughts and actions over a period of time will determine how we progress in life. Positive rituals yield positive results, and negative rituals will produce undesirable results. We have many rags to riches story, and you might be a rags story awaiting the right rituals to change your situation to riches. You will never know until you examine your life and make the necessary modifications. It is time to change your perception about rituals.

Learn To Discover Your Talents.

You will find individuals with similar Success Rituals, but they all produce different results.

This is because everyone has different opportunities and how we react to situations is different. Notably, persons will have similar talent, but each talent comes with a unique ability.

If you do not discover the uniqueness that comes with your talent, you might never truly stand out from the others that are in the exact field as you are. If you cannot produce extraordinary results, then your advancement will be either mediocre or below average. Mediocre and below average results will never give you the title of a successful person.
You will only discover the uniqueness that comes with your talent after you have started using your talent. Let us take a look at some Success Rituals Fundamentals that you must ensure you develop.

Build your rock-solid Success Rituals from this moment.

The first step on the Success Rituals Fundamentals is to believe in YOU. If you do not believe in yourself, you will never really discover your true potentials. Apart from finding what hidden treasures of skills you have buried within, is knowing, how and when you are at your best. Some people will tell you that they think better having a hot cup of coffee. Some after they take a shower or go for a jog, then ideas will start to overflow in their head. Think back to the time you were able to unravel your best idea.

What were you doing at the time that happened and where were you when that happened?

If possible, go back to the exact location and repeat the same action of what you were doing, and try to discover more great ideas.

You will need to purchase a notebook. It is imperative that you always have something close by to write down your thoughts. I am suggesting that you get a notebook because ideas will pop in your head at various hours of the day or night. For example, you might find yourself suddenly awakened by an idea that popped into your head, and you want to write it down immediately. Moreover, trust me, this does happen in the middle of the night when you start developing yourself.

Electronic devices take some time to get booted up, and you might lose your thought. However, if you have a notebook you just quickly fetch your notebook and make jottings, then in the morning, you could type and save your concepts in whatever storage software you use. No matter how brilliant you are, you will not be adept to retain all the concepts in your head.

The thought that you will forget, if you do not jot it down, might be the very idea which is your ticket to get on the success train.

Developing the healthy habit of writing down your ideas also gives you the opportunity to analyze better your plans, and to be able to group or tweak them. That is progress, and you will feel good at what you have accomplished and be more motivated to put them into action.

You are elated now because you have chosen what you believe is the best idea and you are ready to put it into action. It will be at this moment that fear will opt to cripple your mind, creating doubts about your idea and your ability to implement them successfully.

If you do not believe in yourself, and if you have not entirely convinced yourself that this is your time that you were born to make an indelible mark on the lines of history and you are feeling your greatness churning in the depths of your guts that you cannot control it anymore and you need to find your best life, then, I am afraid that you will only get stuck at jotting down great ideas and not knowing where those ideas would propel you on your predestined path of prosperity.

What is Fear?

Fear is the mastermind behind the death of many goals.

We all know someone who is an “If I had.”

The “if I had” of life have many ideas and are always the first ones to tell you how to get things done even though they have never tried anything worth mentioning in their lives. Yes, they have all annoyed you and me at some point in time in life.
You might have even been an “if I had,” but the fact that you are reading this lines now, means there is hope for you.

It is not too late for you to make the decision to change your situation in life.

The only way to dispel your fear is to take the necessary steps to set realistic goals and timelines for your concepts. The moment you decide to continue with your ideas you will feel the power fear had over your mind slowly losing its grip.

Fear will entirely lose its grip on your mind when your concept becomes an action. So go ahead, even if you have to move with wobbling legs and shaking fingers, take your leap of faith.

Goal setting and time management are equally important on the Success Rituals fundamentals ladder.

If you do not set targets with timelines, then you will have nothing to work towards and no achievements to look forward to celebrating.

Setting goals is a medium that you can utilize to determine how close you are to achieving your plans. You have the ability to assess and make adjustment where necessary. It also assists in developing your skills set and discovering other talents that you were not aware that you possess.
Hard work and determination is what will transform your goals into reality. If you only work hard some of the times, then, you should anticipate the partial result. A mind that is determined is the fuel for hard work, and hard work keeps you determine.

That is why the both of them have to be used together consistently. It is impossible to achieve by having only one of the two. Think of determination and hard work that they are Siamese twins. They should always be joined, and it must be difficult to identify one from the other. Muhammad Ali has a quote that has an element of humor to it but it also clearly depicts what you have to do if you want to achieve your goals.

“The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.” – Muhammad Ali

You have to wake up, be determined, and work hard.

Making improvements to your skills set and plans, are another set of Siamese twins.

If you improve on your skill sets, then you will discover other things that you can accomplish. You can gain success in other areas other than what you had made plans for initially. If you improve your strategies, then the possibility is that you will discover new abilities that you had no idea you had.

The discovery of new abilities can be by attempting to work on the improved areas of your plan yourself, or you can employ someone completes the task in your revised proposal. If you hire an individual to perform the work, this is also a learning experience for you. You must always be aware of what is happening in whatever business transaction that you had initiated.
For me, the final Success Rituals Fundamentals is never fear failure. It is inevitable that you will fail at some stage of your plan. Failure varies for different individuals. You might experience a massive failure, and have to start your journey entirely from the first step.
