ust thinking about the word “morning” can put a bad taste in people’s mouths. A recent study found that one in four

J Americans hit the snooze button twice before getting out of bed. Forty-nine percent of the same sample stated that wak- ing up late is the main reason they are always late.

In other words, too many of us struggle with productivity, and there are very few people who jump out of bed as soon as their alarm goes off, excited about starting the day.

I want you to take a couple of minutes and think about what your morning usually looks like…

So you don’t feel alone in this, I’ll start with what mine looked like a little less than three years ago.

Set my alarm for 6am, hit the snooze button until 7am

Jump out of bed, shower, get dressed and run out the door

Get a McDonalds breakfast and eat it on my way to work

Shout at the drivers on the road because it’s their fault I woke up an hour late

Get to work with two minutes to spare

Sit at my desk stuffing my face with coffee and snacks all morning to keep my energy levels up

But then I learned about the power of a consistent morning routine and my life changed. I went from thinking I’d never achieve my dreams, to seeing them slowly manifest while I was becoming confident that I could have anything I set my mind to. Let me start by explaining how healthy morning routines are created and why they make us more productive.

If I had to use an alternative word for “routine,” I’d use the word “freedom” because that’s what it gives us. Think about it like this: what’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? Most of you are going to say, “Brush my teeth.”That’s because it’s a habit. Since childhood, we’ve been trained to brush our teeth as soon as we get out of bed in the morning, so we don’t even think about it, we just do it. When you get in your car every morning to go to work, do you sit there thinking about how you’re going to drive your vehicle? No, you just put your foot on the accelerator and go because it’s a habit. But when you were first learning to drive, your driving instructor had to tell you what to do, and you had to think carefully about it when you were on the road. It may have taken a while, but you got there in the end, didn’t you?

Establishing a morning routine works in the same way. Once it becomes a habit, and you’re powering through your routine on autopilot, it will give you freedom because you will no lon- ger struggle to succeed.

When we get down to basics, routines are the foundation of life; everything you do is routine, even if you don’t think it is. Your bad morning habits of getting up late and having breakfast on the go have become a routine. The way you style your hair is a routine, the location you leave your shoes when you return home is a routine. Can you see my point? Everything is about routine.

The problem is that your current routines aren’t doing you any favors. In fact, they’re hindering you. Everything you do in the morning has become an enemy of progress, and the longer you continue living this way, the longer your success will be delayed. If you’re anything like me, you probably don’t know where to start when it comes to establishing a morning routine. I had no idea what I was doing when I started on this journey. but I had some good people in my life who gave me step-by- step instructions, and now I want to give them to you.

In my bonus e-book, Master Your Morning, you will learn about the seven habits you need to apply to become that person who jumps out of bed every morning raring to go. Here are three of them:

1. A Bedtime Routine: Sleep is one of the most im- portant things you’ll do every evening. Sleep is wonder- ful, we all love sleeping, which is the main reason why so many of you hit the snooze button every morning! You’ve probably heard that healthy adults need eight hours of sleep a night, right? Arguably, this is true, but what you may not know is that the quality of your sleep is more important than the quantity. Do you wake up feeling drained and tired no matter how many hours of sleep you get? That’s because you’re not getting good-quality sleep. And the reason is that you’ve got a terrible night-time routine.

2. Wake up early: As you’ve just read, it’s the quality of your sleep that will determine whether you wake up refreshed or not. The first step to dropping the terrible habit of smashing the snooze button every morning is establishing a good bedtime routine so you wake up


feeling refreshed and energized. Waking up early is an essential habit to cultivate if you want to succeed be- cause it gives you a head start on the day.

3. No Electronics: Did you know that smartphone addic- tion is a real thing? I was addicted to my phone, and I had zero awareness of it. Every time it pinged, I would check to see who was messaging me, and I was always on social media. If you’re going to get anywhere in life, kicking this habit is essential, and I’ll show you how to do it.

Just by pondering these three habits, can you see where you’re going wrong? That’s just a snippet of what’s in store for you in Master Your Morning. You will have access to an abundance of helpful information that will kickstart your journey toward suc- cess and get you one step closer to living your dream life.

If you’ve got to that point where you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, this book is for you. It will equip you with everything you need to become more productive and start tak- ing control of your life instead of letting life control you!
