Becoming more successful in LIFE enables you to become more successful in everything you do. We all here have as common ground our goal of achieving the ACCA Qualification so what can WE do different to separate us from the rest of the pack?
By adopting morning rituals this programs us to start our day right. The meaning of “right” has a different sentiment for everyone.
My “right” is waking up at 05.00am whilst everyone is asleep, it’s very empowering to be able to use the morning hours between 05.00-08.00 to get some specific tasks done.
I start off with my coffee and I it down to review my goals, short term and long term. In my goals I always include qualifying as an ACCA member, that’s always my NUMBER ONE goal. The beauty of reviewing goals is that you have the ability to trouble shoot if you have separated yourself from the course. You can evaluate and of course take corrective action.
I then make sure I get my workout done, a nice brief intense workout for 30 mins. Exercise in almost any form can act as a stress reliever. Being active can boost your feel-good endorphins and distract you from daily worries. (More on How to combat worries in my next blog.)
After I am done, I then proceed to get in an hour of ACCA study time, think about it, your wide awake, you’ve got a nice dose of “happy hormones” pumped throughout your body, what a better time to study. You will be conducive to the material you read.
Finally if I have time I try to get some reading done, my outer transformation (thus getting your workout done to stay fit and healthy) is JUST as important as my inner transformation, thus a few passages from an uplifting book will always get your thinking differently.
I hope I have added some value to your day and stay tuned for “How to combat worry” with regards to our ACCA studies and remember:
