Devani Anjali Alderson

CEO & Founder of Marketing 4 Traffic

“My morning consists of a 20 minute meditation, writing in The Five Minute Journal (a gratitude journal), making coffee, journaling/free-writing, and affirmations of daily goals. In the evening, I write in my Five Minute Journal’s evening section, journal about lessons learned that day, write goals and tasks for the next day, share with my family, and spend time reading.”

John Robinson

Martial Arts Trainer and Coach

“Up at 3.30 a.m. Hit snooze. Up at 3.39 a.m. Brush teeth. Wash face. Drive to work with the loudest metal playing. Drink a coffee. The day progresses from there.”

Charles Michael Jones

ESL Teacher in Thailand

“Wake at 6 a.m. and say “good morning, beautiful” to my fiancée. I then get hot water going for coffee and prepare the toast. At the same time, I take a quick rinse, shave and get dressed. I have my coffee, toast and yoghurt together with my fiancée. Off to work by seven with an “enjoy your day”.

Alex Tatem

Entrepreneur from San Francisco, California

“Daily, I meditate, write down everything I want to accomplish that day in a check box format in the morning, and make sure my goals and things I need to know are in front of me at all times.”

Ryan Ferrer

Entrepreneur from Philippines

“Daily, I spend time visualizing the big picture of what I want to achieve; specifically in areas of health, wealth and relationships. At the end of each session I also think about what to be thankful for. First set of tasks include what will create the most impact to me and my clients – which was planned the day before.”

Shayne Mott

Entrepreneur/Digital Marketer from New Brunswick, Canada

“My morning ritual starts the night before with reading “when I wake up in the morning I feel energized and excited to take on the day and swing out of bed excited for all of the opportunities in store”. I wake up at 7 a.m. and jump out of bed. I create a healthy breakfast, then exercise for 30 minutes, followed by a shower. At this point, it is about 8 a.m. and the most critical actions for progressing my business begin. I always feel great getting started.”

Justin Marshall

Founder, Ad Hoc Media

“I often do a guided body scan meditation off Tara Brach’s website. I find being calm and collected works better for me than ‘rah rah’ pump up stuff.”

Florian Mertens

Entrepreneur from Dartford, United Kingdom

“The short term meditation is to take some fresh air outside. Never a bad start of the day, and you come back with new ideas and the motivation to get on with it. The long term meditation is to think about patterns that instill control and confidence: I am a leader in my abilities. I can help others. How can I help to solve relevant problems around me. What are the current trends, what is cool, what still works.”

Sam Ameen

Entrepreneur living in Hong Kong

“This has been my morning routine for the last year: Exercise while listening to a podcast for 20 minutes. Then, meditation for 10 minutes. Then I write down my goals and journal. From there, I have breakfast and coffee and the day begins!”

Ron Sherbert

Entrepreneur from Massachusetts, USA

“Writing your goals every morning when you get up and every night when you go to bed. Remember they have to be specific, attainable and have a deadline date. When you see that deadline date getting closer every morning and evening you get your ass in gear or you know you failed to reach it. It’s a great way to hold yourself accountable to your goals.”

Adam Ayer

Entrepreneur from Brooklyn, New York, USA

“My basic morning routine goes like this: I drink a full pint of water immediately upon waking up with the filled glass standing by the night before. Then, I view my vision cards, which are also by the bed. I then start meditation for 30 minutes, with 10 minutes of prayer, 10 minutes of visualization, and 10 minutes of meditation to conclude. I use a “meditation timer and log” app to keep track of this. I’m in the gym by 9am everyday, no excuses. I track my habits using a dot system.”

Elvira Kalnik

Entrepreneur from Ukraine

“I start my day with push-ups, sit-ups and other exercises while repeating my empowering incantations. Then, I take an ice cold shower, thank God for my life and everything I have.

Before bed time, I thank God for the day, my family, friends, all good people and results life gives me, for all that I have in my life and I visualize my future the way I want it.

Also, I conduct a mental cleanse time to time. It helps to throw away all the “trash” from a head and become more creative and focused. Also, I learn a lot. Time to time, I question everything including my beliefs. It helps to clear up limiting beliefs and patterns, think out of a box and open new horizons and perspectives. It helps to connect with inner self and find right answers.”
