How do you ensure that you start your morning well? I've had a lot of mornings in my life (approximately 13,152 mornings), and I am just beginning to figure out the secret to a great start for my day. It's not rocket science, it may even be things your mom has told you for years, and you have overlooked. I believe that if you will be diligent to do these 5 things, they will ensure that you also start your morning well.

1. Pray Before Getting out of Bed
This may seem unrelated, but if God owns your business, I believe he is just as interested in it's success as your are, and therefore you should talk to him about it daily, ask his direction and his blessing on the tasks at hand and the results he is leading you to pursue.
2. Dress for Success
It sounds cliche I know, but when you are fully dressed and make-up on, you feel so much more professional and capable, and it gives you a confidence to tackle work that you may not otherwise have. Not to mention that it is easier to record video or do a video coaching call when you know you look professional.
3. Drink Coffee
Silly? I don't think so. I am sure you have your wake-up crutch too. Whether it is exercise, coffee, tea, or another form of caffeine, the day just seems to go much better when you are fully awake and alert and ready to work.
4. Take Your Vitamins
I have a set of vitamins and essential oils that I use daily to keep me healthy. I am also drinking more water and no sodas. It is amazing how cutting out that much sugar has helped me be less irritable, which makes me feel better both physically and emotionally as I work through the things on my to-do list each day.
5. Tackle the Big Things First
For me, this is homeschool with the kiddos in the morning, and then the “big project” on my work to-do list for today. I organize my work by relegating certain tasks to certain days, so when it is time to work, I tackle the biggest task first to be sure it gets done.
