Want to Be Successful? Do These 8 Things Before Breakfast


It’s no secret that successful entrepreneurs and business leaders do things their way. It gives them a competitive advantage and assists them in overcoming adversity. These kinds of individuals tend to share 8 common habits that lend to their success. Try incorporating these 8 things before breakfast every morning to set yourself up for a productive and prosperous day (and career!).

1. Wake up before everyone else.

Well-known successes like Jack Dorsey, Xerox CEO Ursula Burns, Tim Cook, and Richard Branson are just a handful of successful individuals who are known for waking up extremely early. They know that they have to get a head start on the day and there isn’t a second to lose. More importantly, by getting up so early, they are awake before everyone else so that there are no distractions to get in the way of their ideas.

2. Exercise.

Exercise is another popular morning routine for successful individuals. Use your extra time from getting up early to get a workout in! Getting your body moving for as little as 10 minutes makes your brain feel soothed and keeps you in control of your impulses. These improvements in your behavior can start your day out on a productive note.

3. Take a shower.

Science has proven that we have our best ideas while in the shower. That’s because the warm water, relaxed state, and distraction from everything else around us releases dopamine, as well as boosts creativity when our minds are at ease.

4. Spend time with your family.

Successful people believe that kicking off their days with their loved ones is important—whether it’s reading, talking, or making breakfast together. If President Obama can make it a point to have breakfast every morning with his family, then why can’t you?

5. Work on a passion project.

Outside of work, we all have things that we’re excited about. However, successful people realize that these passion projects can help them blow off steam, boost creativity, and refine their current skills or knowledge. That’s why companies like Google encourage employees to have passion projects. And, as a result, Gmail and AdSense were born. With time being so limited, the most successful people work on these projects as early as they can while they are free of distractions and other obligations.

6. Catch up on the news.

Checking the news gives successful people the chance to keep tabs on what’s going in the world. This helps them to know how that’s going to affect their business and how they can develop solutions to make the world a better place.

7. Write down what you’re grateful for.

It’s been found that when you write down what you’re grateful for, it helps get you centered and puts your life in perspective. Try out a five-minute journal to jot down your thoughts and feelings. The five-minute journal is a therapeutic intervention that can help you get more done and feel better while doing it.

8. Read and send emails.

50% of executives begin their days by checking their email. On the other hand, only around 39% of entry-level employees start their days with email. The reason? Successful people like to organize and schedule their day first thing in the morning. Also, reading and sending emails first thing in the morning allows you to focus on more important tasks throughout the rest of the day.
