5 Powerful Morning Habits to Help You Become More Successful

November 8, 2016 Leave a comment

Are you a morning person? Many people enjoy getting up at the sunrise and having a cup of coffee while they browse the web and others prefer to sleep in as long as possible but the most successful people in the world embrace the mornings and in fact there are certain habits that the successful people all seem to share. Here are five powerful habits that will help you become more successful.

1. Get up Early: have you heard the adage early to bed, early to rise? The rest of it is that it makes a man (or woman) healthy, wealthy and wise but in this case it really does make you more successful. If you read about the most successful entrepreneurs out there, you will notice that they get up very early and start their day – and they usually get quite a bit accomplished in the morning as well.
2. Start with Exercise: studies have shown that people who exercise in the morning are5-morning-habits much better equipped to handle the day. You’ll be able to use your brain better, you’ll have more energy and you will simply be better at all of the tasks that you attempt after a half hour or so of exercise. This doesn’t have to be extremely strenuous; it could just be a jog through the park or a bike ride. The important thing is that you exercise.
3. Eat a Good Breakfast: breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you probably know that because experts have been saying it for decades. If you aren’t a breakfast person, you’re not alone. There are lots of people out there who prefer not to eat breakfast and just wait until lunch rolls around. But eating breakfast could help you be more productive and if you try it once you might find that you really enjoy the results.
4. Do the Hardest Thing First: when you get started in the morning don’t go with the easy tasks first. Tackle the hardest project that you have; the one that you’re dreading above all of the others. Once you get that one out of the way, you’ll find that the other projects are easy to accomplish and your day will go much smoother.
5. Prepare the Previous Day: the night before, try to prepare as much as you can so that you’re ready to sit down and get to work as soon as morning comes.

Don’t Lose Sight of Your Vision

October 6, 2013 Leave a comment

Do you have a dream or vision that God has given you and you are uncertain about how to get there? Are you in transition, thus far the directions have been clear, but now the vision is unclear? Is your vision unclear?

In the Message Bible there is a passage of scripture found in Mark 8:22-25 which reads, “They arrived at Bethsaida. Some people brought a sightless man and begged Jesus to give him a healing touch. Taking him by the hand, he led him out of the village. He put spit in the man’s eyes, laid hands on him, and asked, “Do you see anything?” He looked up. “I see men. They look like walking trees.” So Jesus laid hands on his eyes again. The man looked hard and realized that he had recovered perfect sight, saw everything in bright, twenty-twenty focus.”

There are times in pursing your life’s purpose or pursuing success when your vision can become cloudy or a little unclear, especially if you are taking a leap of faith to the next level. Having unclear vision about your next step can be the launching pad you need to boldly go forth into something bigger and better than where you are. Your challenge is to hold firmly to your vision as you go to the next level. In other words, don’t lose sight of the vision. Keep the vision before you by refreshing it.

In this passage of scripture there are several things that took place to help this man receive his sight. From this passage of scripture here are some practical strategies you can apply to your journey as you go to the next level in your business, ministry or life.

1. Start by asking yourself the questionCan I See Anything Now?
You may have only a glimpse of what you should be doing or where you are headed.

2. Acknowledge that you can see something and then write down what you see even if it doesn’t make much sense to you right now.
Writing down what you see puts your vision in plain sight. This helps you to stay focused.

3. Take yourself outside of the comfort zone of family and friends so that you can position yourself to receive clear vision and directions.
You may have to isolate yourself for a season to refocus.

4. Pray for another touch.

Remember, Proverbs 29:18 says, “Without a vision the people perish.” Without revelation about your life’s purpose you will perish. Your potential for success will be hindered. As you go through life don’t let anything shake your confidence, causing you to stumble. Become the gatekeeper of your mind and eyes. Protect your vision – don’t lose sight of it.
