Have a great day, every day.

“Make each day your masterpiece” – John Wooden

Did you know that you can set an intention to have a great day?
Rather than diving into your morning and hoping you’ll achieve your day’s big goal, take back your morning and set yourself up for success. Before doing anything else (especially checking email or social media), try this morning practice which is used by top performers in business, politics, entertainment and sport.

  • Upon waking, lie in bed and think about what you have planned for your day (or, find a quiet spot to sit and contemplate).
  • Think about your desired outcome. Take a deep breath and visualize yourself succeeding.
  • Replay your success several times in your mind.
  • Next, add other senses, including sounds, smells, and touch. For instance, as you replay your success, you now also hear the director offering you the gig, or you feel the physical sensation of your finger hitting the “send” button on your latest assignment.
  • Lastly, replay the scene again, adding emotions. Feel your elation at getting the part, or your pride at finally finishing your work.

This practice will give you clarity and have you starting your day with a productive and positive mindset.

To take it one step further, create an intention for the week. High performance coaches assert that if you don’t have a concrete plan at the beginning of the week that will push you closer to your vision and goals, then you’re simply spinning your wheels in place – thereby getting overwhelmed and stressed. This habit of clarifying an intention for the day, week, month and year is one every successful person from Richard Branson to Oprah implements to ensure they achieve the specific goals they set for themselves.
