If you are a passion-driven Entrepreneur like me, you probably deal with stress, anxiety or even depression at times. These are really difficult periods in your life and can ultimately affect you and the people around you. So, one of the best way I’ve found to deal with this is by creating structure and routine in your life.
Sometimes we need that structure to "Power Us" through the times that our discipline fades...and everyone has times their motivation and discipline fades…trust me when i say Everyone. :)
I learned a long time ago that Your Routine will keep you moving forward towards your goals and help you to navigate these rough times.
This is why I CREATE DAILY RITUALS.
(Hopefully u noticed the all caps of that statement which is prosperity pillar #10).
I want to encourage you to maintain a schedule and routine long enough that it will become automatic and more of a habit for you, so you won’t need to rely as much on motivation. Creating positive HABITS is an important benefit of long term application of your Daily Rituals.
But here is one additional Secret I have also found that has helped me the most.....
You Must Create Structure, Tools, and Resources that make it easier to stay consistent with your daily rituals, otherwise your routine goes out the window when your motivation does.
I’ve been asked many times about my daily routine and rituals, and I will cover that in more detail next week. But, I’d like to just share with you just a few recommendations of Books, Mobile Apps, and Podcasts I currently use as a foundation (for me) on a daily basis. Then, next week I will dig in deeper to my routine and ideas I have for you to Power Through your difficult days.
Here are just a few of the key resources I use on a Daily basis:
Successful people are constantly reading. I like to listen to audio books when I work out or want to unwind for the day. But, I highly recommend you actually take time to sit in a quiet place and read physical books as well. It helps you to stay grounded in the present moment and you retain much more information when you do read a book. Here are just a few of my recent favorites:
Let's face it, we are on our mobile devices all the time. So, you might as well make sure this tool is a force for positive influence in your life right? Her are a couple of key apps I use right on my home screen, and they have both Free and Versions:
If you open up the Podcast app on my mobile phone you will see quite a diversity of podcasts because I listen to various experts depending on my mood or learning needs at the time. I highly recommend occasionally searching new podcasts so you dont get too routine or isolated in the type of people you listen too. But, here are a few of the core podcasts I consistently listen too:
And Finally…(shameless plus)…I highly recommend the Free Daily Mastermind Mobile app on iTunes and Google Play.
I literally created this app for myself and the people i care about. It is totally free and has more resources on it than anything in the entire industry of Personal Development and Financial Education.
Here is just a few of the Free Resources available on the Daily Mastermind App:
I hope some of these resources help you and tune in with me next week as I uncover some of the learning curve I’ve gone through to find the right routine and right success factors with my rituals each week.
Have a great weekend.
