I try to encourage you to find people that inspire you in order to maintain the urge to perform better and better every day. Both personally and professionally.
Today I will talk about one of my heroes that generously let me ‘inside’ his personal habits and showed me his daily affirmations. I must tell you that this is one of the parts of The Morning Miracle where I struggle the most (along with visualization).
So here’s what we can learn from him. I will leave some guidelines in their pure format, some slightly changed (I don’t believe all of you can understand Portuguese! ;) ), and some with extra comments to give you the most of Joao’s daily habits.
>> I love who I am
>> I choose to live a healthy life
>> I am commited to Constant And Never-Ending Improvement (CANI)
[What would happen if every day you would improve one thing in each area of your life and business in a small way? Little things don’t mean a lot, they mean everything!]
>> I will not take anything personally
>> I will not make assumptions
>> I listen patiently while others talk
>> I will communicate with others clearly and express myself more
>> I will not waste my evenings with facebook and my phone. I will disconnect
>> I will cultivate fulfilling relationships
>> I will remain calm and happy at all times
>> I will always do my best. I feel confident, relaxed and I’m focused. I have all I need
>> Outside circumstances and events have no power over me. I create my world from the inside-out
>> I am fully grounded in the experience of the present moment
>> I am grateful for this moment
>> I will pray more
>> I am efficient, I’m good at delegating tasks and I make the best use of my time
I must tell you that I have seen how much Joao accomplishes being very disciplined and growing better habits and this is a guaranteed approach! Personalize it and try it! Repeat every day and watch yourself become the person you want to be!
