5 Secrets To Mastering Your Daily Life for REAL Results
Master your day by cultivating your spiritual practices.
1. Cultivate Your Spirituality
Cultivating your spirituality can lead to increased mindfulness among other amazing benefits.
Start your day off really early, like abnormally early,
I’m talking between 4 and 5 in the morning.
Waking up this early, according to many successful people like Grant Cardone and the teachings of the Ayurveda system, is super beneficial for your body, soul, and mind.
Start off slow by following a daily ritual that’s simple and easy
Here’s my ritual:
I personally start around 6 Am.
Upon rising I drink some warm water with a wedge of lemon (and maybe a little bit of Michigan honey from my friend Kathy), followed by some light stretches and a 10-30 minutes meditation.

Start your day that way and watch as you become more and more peaceful with the world around you.
On top of that, as you get used to being up and ready to take on the day in the early morning, you’ll find that you’ll always have time to be kind to yourself!
2. Build A Serious Action Plan
When you start waking up earlier than everyone else, you’ll realize something amazing: The sheer amount of uninterrupted time you’ll have is unbelievable.
Our most creative and mentally active times are in the early morning, so not only will you have more time, you’ll be super creative and mindful!
That’s exceptional if you’re planning to master your day.
That extra time you’ve got adds up.
Think about it this way, if you work 40 hours a week like most people do and you only add 1 hour to your days by waking up an hour earlier, that’s just under an entire workday you’re getting worth of time.
Let’s not forget how valuable time is.
Time is life.
To master your day, you’ve got to have more time.
But it isn’t just about waking up earlier, though. It’s about planning.
There are loads of ways to schedule how you’re going to go through your day, but by far the best is the Brendon Burchard “1Page Productivity” Method.
It’s a short 1 Page-Planner that looks like this:
After my morning routine of meditation, I plan and journal using the 1 Page Productivity Planner Along with my Brendon Burchard Planner.
3. Declutter Your Decision Making
Did you know that a person’s productivity is directly linked to how many decisions they have to make?
Okay, this might sound crazy, but have you ever noticed how Mark Zuckerberg’s always wearing that signature grey shirt? Or how Steve Jobs always had a black turtleneck and jeans?
Don’t recall? See this first:
The answer… One less decision to make.
This is proven stuff, too.
If you want to master your day, you’ve got to master your decision making!
As if that weren’t enough, the cherry on top is that you’re also saving time.
“We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do certain things, we can accomplish those goals.” –Steven Covey
Now, hold on.
I’m not saying you should only wear the same thing every day!
What I’m saying is that finding ways to declutter your decision making by reducing the number
4. Take Care of Your Body’s Health
Another fantastic way to help you master your day, develop mental clarity and to feel genuinely good about life is to properly take care of your body.
Although body and mind tend to be thought of as separate, they’re exceptionally connected, too.
What you eat does nourish your mind one way or another…
You are what you eat!
The best way to make sure you’re nourishing your body correctly is to, well, judge how you’re feeling!
If you tend to feel abnormally tired or overstressed for no apparent reason, there’s a good chance it’s because you might not be giving the body what it needs.
Make sure to eat your vegetables! (No, seriously, vegetables are absolutely amazing for us, eat them.)
If you eat meat, please switch to grass-fed meat and free range chicken.
For fish eaters, stick with wild caught and not farm raised fish as farm raised are full of chemicals.
Drink lots of water, I mean LOTS! I personally drink 1 liter a day.
Add these natural supplements for extra affect:
