Successful people ask better questions and as a result, they get better answers - Tony Robbins.
Growing up, my mum said to me, ''A good day begins with a good Breakfast''.
As much as I still believe in the importance of starting the day on a full stomach (thank you mum), I've grown to believe a good day begins with a good morning routine.
By asking yourself a handful of quality questions each morning, you'll be able to Coach yourself to creating a sense of direction for the day.
Here are 5 of my favourite Questions to ask myself each morning:
1. What am I grateful for today?
We have so much to be grateful for.
2. What am I excited about today?
Excitement is a powerful state to cultivate.
In my early 20's, I had an office job. I made a curious observation one day...
3. What do I not want to do today?
This question comes from my mentor, Marisa Peer.
She noticed successful people have a habit of doing difficult, unwanted, or unenjoyable tasks first thing in the day.
As Brian Tracey would put it ''they eat the Frog''.
This is a great habit which develops Confidence and Discipline.
Imagine crossing off the task you want to do least each day, before lunch time.
Ask yourself, ''what do I NOT want to do today'' and take action.
4. What does Success look like today?
I'm a big believer in having long-term goals.
One of the ways I help my coaching clients is in answering the question, what do I want?
Being clear on the steps we need to take today, in order to move toward our long-term goals.
5. How can I set myself up for Success today?
Benjamin Franklin said ''By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail''.
The micro-actions you can take before the bigger, most important actions of the day.
Having a healthy Breakfast to give you the energy you need.
Turning your phone on flight mode to avoid distractions.
