Morning Person 2016 – Lesson 6

Lesson 6: 3 Minutes of Mindfulness

Ask yourself these 3 questions and spend one minute thinking about each:

  1. What are you grateful for?
    • Spend one minute feeling the emotion of gratitude for what you already have. From the most mundane to the most fundamental things in your life. When you approach the day with gratitude, you feel more confident about what you have, are more excited about your small wins – and engage less with stress about what you don’t have or haven’t done.
  2. What impact do you want to have on people?
    • Think about your partner, your boss, your clients – even the barista who gets you your coffee. Everyone who comes in contact with you today – how will they feel from having you in their life? This strengthens you, puts you in a place of giving which can be one of the most fulfilling experiences.
  3. What are 3 important things you want to focus on today?
    • What are 3 important things that you will do today to make you feel great about how you spend your time? This gives you focus. You’ll see a clear roadmap: exactly what you need to do, what you need to prepare and anticipate in order to accomplish these 3 things today.

Hmm… I think I’m going to write “GRATEFUL – IMPACT – FOCUS” on…something. Maybe hang it in my closet or stick it to my mirror. Because otherwise I’ll definitely forget to do this. At least I know myself? lol! Yes, I Just did it. I got a Sharpie and wrote that out. I’m gonna take it home and stick it on my mirror right next to me “check the sink before bed!” post-it. Hopefully this one will work better… >.<


Tell me how you REALLY feel:
