7 Morning Rituals of 7 Highly Successful Entrepreneurs

7 Morning Rituals of 7 Highly Successful Entrepreneurs

What makes an entrepreneur successful in life and in business? Successful business owners like Richard Branson, Steve Jobs and Oprah Winfrey have built huge empires and have left an impression that is unforgettable. But what do all these people have in common? Rituals. They have habits and tasks that they do every day to keep them going.


To be successful is to be disciplined. From the time you wake up in the morning and stretch your arms, your day begins. And everyone has the same amount of time in one day.


Here is how some of the most successful people in the world use their time and adopt strategies and rituals that make them successful.


Barack Obama always starts his day 2 hours before his first scheduled event. Sometimes, that means he is up by 4AM. But this gives him the time to exercise and have his morning green tea (you heard me … not coffee, GREEN TEA). He also uses this time stay on top of media and current news.


Steve Jobs asks himself one question in front of the mirror every morning.


“If today was the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?”


This is a powerful question one should ask themselves every day. It puts a lot of life into perspective. If you woke up today and knew it was your last day, what list would you make and what would you want to accomplish in the next 24 hours.


Richard Branson wakes up every morning – bright and early, just like most other success stories – and uses this time to indulge in some form of physical sport. It may be running, tennis or bike riding.


Whilst meditation may not be for everyone, this is how Oprah Winfrey starts her day. Meditation for 20 minutes every morning helps her rejuvenate and fills her with joy and content.


There is one ritual that can oddly make you feel like you have accomplished something. Something as simple as making your bed can actually do that. And that is exactly what Tim Ferris does every morning when he wakes up. He makes his bed. Something so simple can be so rewarding.


Let’s not forget to include the Facebook king himself. Mark Zuckerberg has a rather quirky morning ritual but it helps him focus on tasks that need more attention. He dresses the same way every morning. He says it’s one less thing to decide on.


Tony Robbins calls his morning ritual his “Hour of Power”. And one of the things he does is take a bath in a hot tub and then jump into a cold shower. The very first thing he does is drink lemon water and then goes on to do yoga. This helps him imagine perfection and abundance.


In short, if you adopt any of these morning rituals, you are already on your way to personal and business success. The one thing they all have in common is that they wake up early and look after themselves before they start to look after their families, their businesses, their staff and the people that depend on them. If you look after yourself first, with a clear mind and a focus for success, you can be the next success story.
