People have differences, everybody is unique in their way, but we all have our similarities, things we do every day, or our daily routine. In the same way, billionaires and self-made billionaires are unique and the way they achieved success, but there are some things they do daily as their morning routines, and they have been doing so for many years, and it has helped them reach where they are right now.
We all want to be billionaires, have the power, the fame, the money just like they do. Morning routines might not be enough for us to be as successful as they are, but we can learn these skills to live a better life. Here are some morning routines that all self-made billionaires follow:
Get up early:
One of the first and the most important things these self-made billionaires do when they wake up every day is the act of getting up early. Do you remember the poem we were taught in school, early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and intelligent? I’m sure you have heard this poem, and I tell you that this is true. When you wake up early, there is a different kind of positive energy flowing within you, and you have more will power and energy to do things.
We must remember that time is the most precious jewel in the world, every second count. When you wake up early in the morning, you have more time to do things, from working out or just spending time with your family or just loving yourself.
Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, wakes up at 3:45 am every day. This gives him more hours to work on everything he wants to do during his day. He squeezes every second of the day to make it productive. It also gives him the extra way to be creative.
Engaging in some exercise
The wealthiest and the most successful people in the world start their days with some exercise. It does not necessarily need to be a strong and hard cardio workout, but maybe some light exercises. Many of them engage in activities like jogging, yoga, or even meditation. It helps their body and mind get ready for everything they will come across during the entire day.
Exercising in the morning helps you stay calm and doesn’t over stress you during the entire day. It keeps you fit, and a healthy mind requires a fit body. A healthy person can work better, perform better, and have a longer life. It keeps your body fats and cholesterol in check and gives your body a good wake up call.
Research says that there is no better time to exercise than in the morning. It also elevates your mood. The founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, gets up at 5 am and meditates. Bill Gates starts his day with some cardio.
Heading into your day without knowing or having any idea what to do will be a waste. You will waste most of your time planning and deciding what to do and what not to do. One of the main things that self-made billionaires do in the morning is to plan what they will do or what they want to do during the day.
It helps us to tune our day into the melody we want. And allows us to control our schedule more than our schedule holds us. It will prioritize our time and select what needs to be taken care of first and what we can keep for some time later. It helps us manage our time productively and to have a stress-free day.
The real world ironman and richest man in the world, Elon Musk, plans his day in the morning and schedules his activities in 5-minute blocks.
Work, consistency, success, and professionalism are essential for these self-made billionaires, but the most important thing in life is family. These people are very busy and focused the entire day, so they do not want to miss out on such an essential part of their family time.
All these people spend quality time in the morning with their family. This is a very special time as it involves bonding and love, and it also relaxes our brains and releases endorphins, and happiness is a big part of life. We often tend to miss out on important people, so a morning without loved ones can change the picture of the entire day.
Elon Musk spends his mornings getting his children ready for school and dropping them at school. This is very precious for someone who spends 120 hours of his week at work.
When these self-made billionaires get up in the morning, they never start things or take things with a negative outlook. They always try to take it positively. It can be a little hello to their employees or just trying to take everything in and learn from everything on the table.
When you start something with positivity, everything around you becomes positive and starts to feel much better and healthier, your confidence level increases, which will directly impact your performance. It also creates a good vibe around, and people around you will feel much better and more positive as positivity is contagious.
Starting the day can be very simple; just waking up and being grateful for having a day ahead of you or having delicious breakfast in the morning can also lighten up your day positively. Doing things with a smile changes the whole outlook of your day and slowly your life. The power of positivity is enormous.
Following only these morning routines might not make us billionaires as a lot more is required to be billionaires. Still, following these steps, every morning can help us become better humans, which is the most important thing in life.
