Why I Choose Morning Action Over Morning Affirmations 🤔
Redefining Morning Routines: Prioritizing Results Over Rituals
Many people swear by morning routines that include affirmations, meditation, or gratitude practices. While I respect these rituals, they aren't a part of my daily kickoff. Instead, my mornings follow a simple sequence: wake up, check emails, hit the gym, and dive straight into work. Here's why.
1. Results over Rituals:
The value of any routine should be judged by the results it produces. For me, the tangible outcomes from work define my progress and growth. While affirmations might boost some people's confidence or outlook, I believe it's the actual work that creates tangible results and builds true confidence.
2. Time is of the Essence:
Every minute spent on a ritual that doesn't directly contribute to my end goals is a potential delay. Those minutes add up over days, weeks, and months. Rather than spending this precious time on practices that don't directly push me towards my goals, I choose to be proactive and get to work.
3. The Power of Small Wins:
Every task completed and every challenge overcome is a confidence booster. These small victories compound over time, creating a positive feedback loop that's far more potent for me than any affirmation could be.
4. Success is Contagious:
With each day that I achieve something, no matter how small, the momentum builds. Just like a snowball rolling down a hill, these consistent achievements gather size and speed, propelling me closer to my aspirations.
In conclusion, we all have unique ways to start our day. For some, it's a quiet moment of reflection or a mantra repeated in front of a mirror. For me, it's the act of doing, the pursuit of results, and the thrill of achievement. Because in the end, it's not about what we tell ourselves in the morning, but what we show ourselves throughout the day.
