A Morning Routine for Success

I have a morning routine that is proving to be very good for me personally and professionally.

It has helped me:

  • to stay motivated
  • be inspired to write and create content
  • to change my thinking to one of abundance

The routine goes like this:

  • I read between 30 and 60 minutes each morning.
  • Followed by an audio from Inner Circle.
  • Then at 9 am ET I jump on a conference call where a reading from a Napolean Hill book is done, followed by comments from listeners. You are welcome to join us on that call at: 712-432-0900 Access Code: 565762#. Each call is recorded and you can hear the recording here: 712-432-0990 Access Code: 565762#.

Today I'm starting a new book, “The Motivation Manifesto: 9 Declarations to Claim Your Personal Power” by Brendon Burchard.

I ordered and received my copy a few months ago, began reading it and realized that it really works best as a “chapter a day” read. I set it aside in favor of Tony Robbins' “Awakening the Giant Within”.

My plan is to read one chapter, focus and meditate/ponder/ruminate on the ‘lesson', then note how I can apply it to me and the day ahead. 

I'll let you know how it goes.

So, do you have a morning routine that works for you?

Are you preparing yourself for the day so that you will be successful?

Are you wondering what to change, now, so that you can be closer to living the life you want to live?

Wondering what successful internet marketers do every day to be successful? Check out the Inner Circle audios – recordings from real people doing real things with internet marketing. One of the better investments I've made toward keeping up to speed with internet marketing tactics, but also to keep my mind focused as a business owner.

  1. Hello Charlene, awesome…I like it…without a morning routine, most of us will be lost, wondering in the land to nowhere. You will enjoy greatly Motivation Manifesto, just finished it today. Thanks….stay blessed

  2. You have a great daily routine. I have a pest control business. I start my day early by creating/posting/marketing my blog. I TRY to make the morning call, but more times than not, I am listening to the replay. STay motivated…stay moving forward. Great post.

  3. Great post! I’ve been doing something similar. reading 30-60 minutes each morning and then going through a David Wood visualization exercise. Really sets the day up right. Now, I’ll be jumping on this Napoleon Hill call, although it’ll be 6AM for me! Thanks for sharing that resource.

    1. Hi Matt – I’ve been a reader all my life so it was easy to set aside a ‘focused on development’ time. And you’re right, it really does set the day up right.

  4. My daily routine starts in the morning with setting my days intentions, and then a 30-45 minute walk, while listening to personal development audio, and this sets my whole day up. Ritual or routine is not only super important, but is also extremely useful, growthful and healthy. And thanks for sharing the book title, I will look that one up 🙂

    1. Hi Val – sounds like an awesome routine! The only thing missing from mine is the exercise – something I’ve been fighting for a long time. That’s a private issue I’m hoping to resolve soon. As for the book – yes, check it out!

    1. Hi Lupe! It is a great book. I’ve read through it once but set it aside because I realized that it truly works best as a daily reader. And so far, it’s working out nicely to keep me focused and motivated.

  5. as always, Charlene, great recommendations. being a night person these are valuable tips to me because i love living “normal” hours… i just tend to want to stay up late at night and then when the morning comes i’m unmotivated… but this is a good way to get going..

    1. Hi Regina – ‘normal’ hours? What are those? LOL While you’re a night person I am a morning person, usually up and ready around 4:30 am. I think you can have a nightly routine that works just as well as a morning routine. Aw heck, it doesn’t matter what time it happens, just that it does, right?

  6. Thanks for sharing, Charlene. I like how you have everything scheduled out and have filled your day with motivation and learning. I love the Tony Robins and Napolean Hill and find their work to be truly inspirational and very factual.

    1. Thanks, Miah. I’ve learned that if I have a few things scheduled it helps my day to be more flexible – if that makes sense! I, too, love Tony Robbins and Napolean Hill. Though I admit to not having any desire to go to a live Tony Robbins event. That energy level knocks me out just thinking about it! Thank you for stopping by.

  7. Great routine, Charlene! I have really been loving Justin’s “Weird Entrepreneurs” Podcast lately! Kind of like the Inner Circle, but so other great Entrepreneurs outside of EN!

    1. Thanks, Scott! Oh yes, I love Justin’s “Weird Entrepreneurs” podcast. Amazing how much I relate to many of the interviewees – a clear indication that I’m heading in the right direction. And while they’re similar to Inner Circle, I prefer Inner Circle for the nitty gritty tactical tidbits that are often revealed.

  8. You have an awesome morning routine. I start my day with meditation and Yoga. The rest of the day is taking care of the animals on our small farm. After dinner though, I also have a fairly regular nightly routine, which includes reading, audio and blogging.

    1. Sounds great Alicia. I’ve been doing basic, bare basic, Yoga and am now looking at Martial Arts. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. AWESOME post Charlene, I love discussing morning rituals and truly appreciate this post because it’s so valuable. One of my morning rituals is waking up and spending qualitiy time with Quan-Yin and my wife before we start the day, that time is so precious.

    1. Justin – family time first thing in the morning is the perfect way to start the day. When my husband is in town I spend the first hour after he awakens with him, drinking coffee and talking. I miss him when he’s gone, as no other activity replaces the time I have in the mornings with him.
