There six core areas of success. Each area is important to create balance in your life.
If you ignore one of the six core areas of success, then, you will not be able to function at your best.
You will have a sense of lacking in your life and might even waste your time trying to fill the void with the wrong things.
The six core areas of success are listed below:
⦁ Physical Health –
The emphasis can never be too much on how important it is to ensure you do all that is possible to sustain your physical health. It is quite logically that one of two things will occur if you do not maintain your physical health.
It is either that you will have to spend your fortune on medications and doctors or you will be snatched to an early death due to some form of health issue. Exercise, eat healthily, get adequate sleep, and drink a lot of water can assist in keeping you healthy.
⦁ Emotions –
Your emotions affect your mind. If you are mentally unhealthy or unstable, then you cannot make objective decisions. A decision that is made when someone is emotionally unstable can wreak havoc on your life and has the potential to become very drastic, which we have all either heard, read or experienced personally.
All the six core areas of success are correlated. Take for example, if something happens to trigger your emotions in a negative way – you are feeling sad, or you might be angry – you can always exercise to calm yourself down.
It is not only your negative emotions that you need to learn to control because if you are too excited or happy, but you can also make a wrong decision.
For example, if you are overzealous you might spend money on things which you do not need, and that money could have been invested in something that will increase your income. Life is about creating the right balance in everything you do.
⦁ Relationships –
Your relationships can affect your health and your emotions. A toxic relationship will leave you with feelings of despair and anger.
Unhappiness and rage can lead to depression. Depression will affect your progress, either by you losing time to work, or by you making decisions, which will ultimately result in failure.
The benefit of good relationships will create heaven for you on earth. The world in your eyes is at peace because your heart is full of love, and your mind will have its cover made from thoughts of joy.
You will function better. You will be more eager to get up in the mornings because you are grateful for another day to be with the ones you love.
Examine your relationships, and see how they are impacting your life. If being around someone makes you feel burdened, or you feel as if that person is pulling all your hope, and joy out of you, then that is a toxic connection. You need to disconnect from that person.
Relationships that motivate you to become better or the ones that help your ideas sparkle are what you need in your life.
⦁ Career or Business –
Observing the attitude people display at their place of work can always tell who loves their job from who do not. If you are not in the job or business which makes you feel that this is what you were born to do, then you might be in the wrong field. Your career or business must leave you feeling fulfill no matter the obstacles you face daily.
The belief that the world could not exist without you doing that business or career find its resting place in your mind and heart. When in the right field, it will be easier to keep focus, and because of the passion you have for your career or business, failure cannot convince you to quit.
⦁ Finances –
“Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the “gotta have it” scale.” – Zig Ziglar
Wealthy and happy is all of us heart’s desire. However, if you want to be wealthy, it might take years of hard work to become rich, but it only takes a minute with a bad investment, which will result in you losing all your money.
If you do not have money, it might make you unhappy because you cannot buy the things you need to support yourself or family.
Not having money can also prevent you from investing in your career or business. However, you can have money and still not be happy, because there is unbalance in one of the other five core areas of success.
Never spend money on things just because you want to impress others. That is definitely not a ritual of successful individuals. The wealthiest people live humble lives.
For example, Bill Gates has topped various billionaire lists for years. He can afford his own private jet. Bill Gates is known to comfortably sit in the economy class on airplanes when he is traveling.
Warren Buffet, with all his billions, is very much content in his home, which he bought for less than forty thousand dollars many years’ ago. He also still makes his billion dollar transaction discussion on his flip phone, which he has not replaced for any of the high-tech cellular phones that are available today.
They give back a portion of their wealth to various charitable organizations. Sometimes it is a charity that they have started or one that is already in operation. Even after death, the richest individuals are sharing their fortune.
A lot of affluent individuals are willing their fortunate to charities. Melinda Gates and Bill Gates have a grant-making foundation where they give away billions to different charities around the world. They have also encouraged other billionaires to donate some of their fortunes to the less fortunate.
You must also adopt this principle of giving back to the less fortunate. Just as how you will start practicing the other success rituals, this is one habit you must also develop. Allocate whatever you can afford to charity now, and as your wealth increases, then, you increase the portion for charity as well.
⦁ Spirituality –
No matter what your religion preference may be, spirituality is an important aspect of spiritual success. Spirituality can be found all around you, from the time you spend in nature, to meditation, to your religious practices.
Spirituality has the ability to ground you and keep you close to both your own personal feelings and help you work through anxiety and emotion which will enable you to make sound and important judgments. Choose a spiritual ritual for yourself and stick with it each and every day.
Morning Success Rituals
A vast amount of information was shared about morning success rituals throughout this report, and it is evident that you have to start your day right, to create the perfect momentum for the rest of the day.
Your first exercise routine should be a smile. A smile is free. It is the best cosmetic surgery, and it will help to relax you. Try smiling right now, and see if you do not feel an instant peace in your heart.
⦁ Show Gratitude
After you smile, then you should show gratitude to the world around you for the ability to experience a new day. Through meditation, you will hear your inner voice more distinctly.
You will have the opportunity to search your soul, and discover your most profound desires. Sometimes, if you listen keenly, you will begin to understand exactly what your path should be.
⦁ Drink More Water
Drink some water at least a liter to hydrate your body. Water helps with circulation, improves your skin tone, assists with weight loss, and the purification of your body.
Water is the best drink to have. It is imperative that you always consult your physician about things that will affect how your body functions, before attempting to do them.
⦁ Positive Affirmation
You need positive affirmation. Motivational audios or books are a great source of motivation. After you meditate, then, you can listen or read from something from your favorite motivator.
Positive affirmation is a must among your daily routine, and you have to learn to be your greatest source of inspiration. This will help to block all the negative voices, which will tell you that you do not have the ability to achieve.
Feeding your mind with positive food sets the tone for you to improve your knowledge. Take some time in the morning to read. Most of the knowledge you will acquire in life will come from your experiences and what you teach yourself.
Next, you engage in some vigorous exercise. Go for a long walk or a run. Do some stretches or yoga. Get physically active.
By the time you have completed the above activities, you will feel fully rejuvenated, and ready to face the new day. You can start with your most challenging task, and then work your way through the others. How you end your day can impact how your day starts. Therefore, aim to end your day on a good note.
Your body needs time to unwind from the wear and tear of the work day. Take some time to relax in the evenings. Designate time for your family. Never neglect the one’s you love in your pursuit of wealth. It will be very lonely at the top of the ladder success if you do not have anyone to share your success with.
⦁ Plan For Tomorrow
Make plans for the next day. Prioritize your task. Make a list of those that are critical to least important. Assess your day if you had accomplished your entire task, and if you had not, what prevented you from achieving that task. If it is possible, you should exercise in the evenings too.
Say goodbye to the world of work with whatever relaxation techniques you have and settle in for a healthy prosperous future.
Evening Success Rituals
Now I will share with you the evening success rituals for going to bed every night feeling fulfilled with a big smile on your face! These rituals are the follow-up to your morning rituals to reflect and celebrate after your day’s activities.
While morning rituals are highly encouraged to be incorporated into everyone’s daily routine, the evening rituals are equally as important to get the most out of your day. After all, there is no point to start off a race full of energy but no idea how to end it.
So, I don’t want you to miss this crucial part to inspire your success and celebrate it. You may be consistently crushing your goals one after another, but unless you take the time to celebrate every victory in your life, then you’re definitely not getting the most out of your day and missing out on a lot of magic moments and sense of fulfillment that you should be experiencing at this moment.
Here are the Evening Success Rituals that I highly recommend incorporating into your evening routine:
⦁ Empowering Evening Questions
At the beginning of the Evening Success Rituals, the main focus is to reflect your day. And the best way to reflect is to ask powerful questions, not just any other questions that beat yourself up.
I called these powerful questions “Empowering Evening Questions“, designed to help you reflect on your entire day and come up with constructive ideas to shape a better tomorrow.
So the first thing you should do is to find a quiet place, where you won’t be easily disturbed and distracted for a set amount of time in order to go deep in your daily reflection.
The questions you ask determine what you focus on. That’s the reason why the type of questions you ask yourself is extremely important. Ask a lousy question, and you will feel lousy; Ask a good question, and you will feel amazing!
For example, how you feel about ‘Today’ is ultimately based on the Good or Bad you focused on.
Let me ask you this… What were the things that happened today that you can feel good about?
I’d bet you can come up with a long list of things! It could be the fact that you’re alive, or you went for a walk, or you had a wonderful time with your loved ones, or you had done a good deed, had an amazing dinner, crossed off ONE stuff on your to-do list…
Whatever it is, you can always find something to be feel good about every single day.
Now let me ask you again… What were the things that happened today that you feel awful about?
Again, I’d bet you can list out a lot of things. It could be that you procrastinated on your tasks, ate some nasty junk food, failed to pick up that call, skipped the gym, said some awful things to people you care for, and so on…
Ultimately, how’d you feel after answering this question? Of course, AWFUL!
The fact is, there is always Good and Bad in each day, and what you ask yourself decides what you’ll focus on each night before hitting the sack. What you focus on determine how you feel about that particular day.
Since there is always Good and Bad, why not be proactive and decide that you only want to acknowledge the Good that happened that day?
Since you can decide how you’re going to feel at the end of the day, why not choose to feel good instead of bad?
Guess what happens if you constantly ask yourself Empowering Evening Questions? Every day will be an awesome day for you and you’ll always feel like a rockstar! Now, think of the level of accomplishments, productivity, and fulfillment you’ll experience every day… I’ll let you know about mine – Phenomenal! In fact, there is no such thing as a bad day.
It all starts with your focus, and these Empowering Evening Questions will help you to do just that.
And here’s a list of questions that I ask myself every evening:
What was fantastic about today?
What did I learn today?
What am I grateful for today?
What was my biggest accomplishment for today?
What would make today great?
Don’t just write down all your answers, try to FEEL the emotions and energy coursing through your veins as you read out your answers out loud.
Do this with level 10 intensity – move, gesture and smile widely as you answer them. Allow yourself to feel proud, excited, happy, loved, appreciated, etc…
Trust me, you’ll be amazed by what this simple exercise can do to your physical and emotional well-being.
The more emotional intensity you put into this exercise, the more juice you’ll get from the Empowering Evening Questions exercise.
⦁ Seizing Your Magic Moments
A life worth living is a life worth recording. – Jim Rohn
After you’ve gone through the Empowering Evening Questions exercise, you’ll be in an incredible state. But you don’t want to stop right there. You should take this opportunity to seize these emotions and feelings by journaling all your successes, accomplishments and magic moments. Otherwise, they’d be forgotten.
So take out a journal and write down everything that happened on that day. List down everything that you had done and all the powerful moments that you want to remember later on.
Time passes by so fast and we easily forget to really take in and appreciate the little things. At the end of your life, you won’t be able to remember everything, but only certain moments. So I want to encourage you to take your time and capture all your successes and magic moments into your journal.
One day, when you’re feeling down and see no hope in life, you have a journal to go back to and remind yourself of all the magic moments that you once had and realize that your life is actually more incredible than you think. By journalling your magic moments, you’ll be aware of what you were doing with your time and celebrate your victory.
Last but not least, CELEBRATE! Celebrate your day to your heart content, you deserve it! This is a powerful way to positively reinforce yourself.
Don’t beat yourself up for things you didn’t do, tasks you procrastinated, food you shouldn’t eat, etc… Because that’s what most people do, which prompts them to feel awful and guilty about themselves.
To make things worse, they repeat this process every day and they end up in a downward spiral that sets themselves up for more failures.
Why bring so much pain in your life when there are so many Good that happens every day? Why not start recognizing and celebrating all the Good that happened that day?
What gets rewarded, gets repeated.
When you celebrate your victory often, you’ll invite more amazing things into your life. And soon, you’ll be conditioned to notice the Good in every little thing that happens in your life. And soon, you’ll develop powerful habits such as gratitude, consistency, tenacity, and self-discipline.
So how do you celebrate?
You really don’t have to complicate things. Celebrating means giving yourself pleasure. It could be as simple as patting yourself on the back and say to yourself ‘Good Job!’, treat yourself a whole-hearty meal, giving thanks, listening to your favorite music, or meditating with gratitude.
The key is to give yourself pleasure. Often times, we wait for others to praise, acknowledge, and reward us in order to feel happy, appreciated, and fulfilled.
Why not be proactive and reward yourself when you can choose to be happy right now?
