19 Morning Rituals of the Super Successful

01. September 2017

What is something that every successful person has in common? They all have a morning ritual.

Most people wake up in the morning and go to check their phone or hit the snooze button. Even worse, they lay there awake, dreading the thought of getting up. It doesn’t have to be this way!

Each morning, those who are super successful go through a certain morning routine. It’s through their morning routine that sets them up for the entire day.

In this article, I will share with you the exact morning routines of the super successful.

Barbara Corcoran: She makes a to-do list the night before. Once she gets to the office, she reviews the to-do list she made. This allows her to make sure she does the most important tasks of the day.

Mark Zuckerberg: He starts his day by dressing the same way each morning. Mark realizes that this is one less decision he has to make throughout his day. He intends to be as productive as possible.

Howard Schultz: He gets up every morning at 4:30am and walks his dog.

Olivia Wilde: Starts her day by taking in everything she’s grateful for.
