5 Morning Rituals To Start Your Day

So how do you begin each day? Do you wake up like a zombie, go to the bathroom, brush your teeth, and think "what day is it?" Then you might just start thinking about all the stuff you "have to do" for the day and then get a sick feeling in your stomach. That may not be how you begin your day, but what you do each morning especially in the first couple hours determines how your day can possibly go.

I personally cherish my mornings. I'm blessed with six incredibly beautiful children who I absolutely love beyond life it self. And, that's why I love my mornings. I wake up before the family because I need that time for ME. I don't just wake early to watch TV or read the newspaper. I get up early to do my morning rituals which sets the stage for me to feel centered, excited and ready to kick butt.

So here's my morning rituals that I've been doing for years. These aren't the only rituals that create a great day but they have worked for me.

#1 Have Your Day Planned/Scheduled
This ritual has the potential to change and transform your life! Having your day planned the day before gives you direction and focus for the day. You can give it a quick review before you go to bed and when you wake there's no wasted time doing unproductive stuff. So this ritual begins the previous day and you can write down (schedule) your morning rituals.

#2 Drink water
After I dress and brush my teeth, I go to the kitchen and drink about 30 ounces of water. This hydrates my body and it feels great. I'm a tea drinker (I was a coffee drinker but switched over about 10 years ago) however I avoid drinking tea the first couple hours of the day.

#3 Exercise
Starting your day off with exercise gets your heart pumping and blood flowing. I've been working out in the morning for many years and it has been a key ingredient to feel amazing for the entire day. So if you haven't been working out in the morning, just begin and start - you'll be so happy you did!

#4 Meditate/Solitude
Meditating in the morning is a wonderful way to center your mind. It's very easy to fall into the routine of allowing your mind to think about all the "stuff" you have to do. If we allow our minds to think to far into the future it's easy to get stressed. So allow 15-20 minutes of quiet time and allow the the mind be free. Yes, you'll have many thoughts, but this time you won't grab a hold of any of them. Let them come and go.

#5 Read/Listen to something inspiring
There's plenty of negative news in the world and if you turn on the television you'll find it. That's why it's so important to not watch the news at the beginning of your day. Flood your mind with a book that inspires you or provides motivation. Listen to an audio program that gives you strategy to develop in your professional and/or personal life.

These aren't the only rituals that can transform your day but a great start. You have the power to change your life if you choose. That starts with how you choose to begin your day. That's how you change your life, one day at a time. So either use these morning rituals to begin your day or craft your own. What's most important is that you take action and begin your morning rituals.

Staying Motivated

Let's face it we've all struggled staying motivated sometime in our life. What is motivation? And how the heck can I get more of it?

Have you ever heard or been told, "Your a motivated person or that person is self-motivated". Apparently when someone is motivated it's visible for the world to see. Well if that's true what if you're not motivated, what does the world see?

Here's the point, motivation is defined different by people but it also has some common traits as well. Instead of writing a really long blog, I want to invite you to listen to my audio program "Staying motivated". The link is below so go and listen now or download and listen later.

The Power of Listening

So you probably heard the saying, “You've got two ears, one mouth, so you should listen twice as much than you talk.” There's so much truth in that. But here's the real situation. People struggle with listening. Do you truly feel like you're being heard from somebody?  Or are they just there, not truly engaged?  You don't feel like they're present?

Well, this is the deal. If you want to change that, you have to change that with yourself. There's three levels of listening.  Level one is when someone is talking and you are literally saying, “What's this mean to me?” How am I going to get involved in this?” So at level one there’s one main question you ask inside your head. What does this mean to me. That's level one.

Level two is engagement. You're really listening to the person. You're looking to find out what's their values? What's missing in their life? So you're really, really, really focussed, and you are present, and you are engaged. That's level two. 

Level three. Level three listening, is hearing the unsaid. You can feel what they're feeling. You can feel what's going on around them and understand their environment. This is an extremely powerful level. So, where do you think most people listen? What level? Well, if you said level one you're right. Most people are at level one, but here's the secret. If you want to go from level one and begin to live in a place of level two. Where you are really focused on that person, and then really entertain yourself with going to level three at times. 

Here’s the secret. You have to take the focus off yourself, and you have to put it on the other person. That's the secret. It's simple, but if you do that people will feel that you're present. You won't necessarily have to solve anything for them. They'll want you around a lot more. You'll become a more effective leader. People will come to you more. It's that powerful. 

So go out and play at level two, and entertain level three. Level three is really feeling the unsaid. You know them better than they know themselves in that situation. So the power of listening is about listening more than you talk, and you'll make a huge difference. You'll get results for yourself, but also those who are around you.

Getting Out of a Rut

So what exactly does it mean to be in a rut? Well, number one is if you feel like you're stuck, you feel like you're not moving forward, but you're conscious and aware that you can be doing so much better. You're in a rut. What get's us in a rut? Well, pretty much what we choose to focus on. We might have been let down from all our results that we are not getting. We could be overwhelmed. Typically we're focusing on what's not working really well in our life. That just beats us down. You know it might take a month, it might take a week, depending, but eventually it just gets you down. And then you don't do much. You're still active, but you're disappointed because you know you can be doing so much better. 

So that's what puts us in a rut. So the question is, how do you get out of a rut? It's like eating an elephant. I don't eat to many elephants. I don't know if you do, it's more of a metaphor. You can't eat an elephant with one bite. That's what most people do to try to get out of a rut. Everyone wants to go really really fast. We put too much on our plate and can't get it done which results to frustration. Which ultimately keeps us in a rut. 

So the strategy I recommend with my clients that I am coaching, is start doing the little things. I mean the real small things that give you some momentum. Yeah, initially you're going to beat yourself up, and say, “So what this was so small who cares”. You can't have that voice anymore. You need to do the little things. Start telling yourself, “That was pretty good, I did that!” Then you move on to the next task... Then the next task... You start accumulating some progress, and it starts to feel pretty good. 

You might not even want to admit it, but you're going to think this feels pretty good. What will happen when you take little steps? You’ll start taking action and you’ll also start noticing other things to do. Your focus will begin to change for the better. You’ll start building some momentum up. When you're feeling good you’ll shift into the good energy. Once that happens you can put a little bit more on your plate. Then you can start redefining between tasks and your goals. You get the picture? We all want to move forward and make progress. However the ultimate goals is to achieve life results. 

So if you're in a rut don’t stay there. I hope that strategy works for you. Just remember to become aware that you are in a rut. You need to get in action and start to move even if it means on small actions. 

To your happiness and success.

How To Stay Focused

How to Stay Focused

If I had a dime for every client that told me that they can’t stay focused, I'd be a millionaire.  So often that's what I hear from my clients. They tell me, “I can’t stay focused” or “How do I stay focused?”  I want to address this issue and give you some strategy to break this block.  First you really don't have a problem focusing.  It's just a matter of what you're focusing on.  You find yourself somewhat distracted, you’re focusing on a lot of different things.  The real issue below what you’re focusing on are your limitations.  You have limiting beliefs about your ability so the process is I'll keep changing my mind, keep focusing on different things so I can distract myself.

So this is what you need to do, first understand you have a limiting belief. You may not know it consciously but it is there and it's holding you back.  And it's making you focus on too many things.  If you really want real power, you have to channel your energy.  You probably understand and realize this already. So you need to bring to the surface your limiting beliefs. How you elicit those, bring them out, is set a really huge goal.  Hey if you're making $30,000 a year, put a goal out there to make $300,000 a year.  And what's going to happen is you’re going to just feel all the fears and limitations come to the surface, the I can't, it's not possible, I'm not educated, I'm too old, I'm too young.  It all comes to the surface.  

So once again, how you draw out the limitations from your subconscious mind all of our limiting stuff is you have to set a big goal. A goal that you would love to achieve but there's a lot of doubt.  All of that stuff comes out.  You start identifying them.  Write them down.  You probably weren’t aware of them in that moment, but as you set a big goal it will start coming through, coming out of you.  You need to take note of these limitations.  Capture those limitations.  There’s a real simple process is to eliminate. You need to associate with the pain if you choose to live with this limitation. Take the limiting belief you’ve identified and get very associated to what life would look like 1 year out and go out as far as you wish - 30 years. You need to associate to the pain that this is holding you back in your life.  

See it's not that you can’t focus.  The real underlying issue is you have limitations.  
You have limiting beliefs holding you back. The behavior we have is we keep changing our minds, focusing on different things.  Set a big goal, let all the feelings come up.  Take note of those, and choose if I live with this limitation way out into the future, what’s life going to look like.  Associate to the pain.  After you do that, create a new empowering belief, a belief that gets you so excited.  If the present belief is “I can't do this” or “I'm too young”. Make the new belief, “I have all of the energy” or “I'm in the perfect place of my life”.  Create a new empowering belief and now see what that belief does down the road a year, three, five or 10 years.  It gives you a different feeling.  Keep doing this process.  

All you’re doing is you’re flushing out all the garbage and then you're replacing it with a new empowering belief.  This is a daily ritual.  It will change the way you feel.  You'll begin to become more focused on what you really want to do in your life. You’ll start to have breakthroughs and begin to play bigger in life.. So enjoy, live with joy and happiness.  To all your success.

How to Achieve Your Goals in Less Than 30 Days

How to Achieve Your Goals in Less Than 30 Days

Hi. This is Darryl Jarmosco, and in this video I’m going to show you how to achieve your goals in less than 30 days, so stay tuned. You can achieve whatever you’d like to do in as little as 30 days. Whether you’re looking to achieve your dreams or you’re looking to achieve goals in your career, at work, in your relationships, it can be done in as little as 30 days. You just need to have a different way to approach it.

Ok, so here’s the deal. People can look at it and say can you really achieve goals in as little as 30 days or even less? And I say absolutely. And I’m not trying to play a game, this isn’t some BS. Here’s the deal, most people are good at setting goals.  I shouldn’t say most, but people can set goals.   My clients have told me day in and day out, Darryl I can set the goals. The problem is I come out of the gates, I’m really excited, and then I’m just kind of poo- poo. I fall apart. That’s their pattern. They do that over and over and over, and it gets really frustrating. 

So here you go. Take a look at my arm so I can get it all the way in there. There it is. How long is my arm? It’s not very long. The point is you have to have a goal within arm’s reach. I used to keep saying that over and over and over. So yes you can set a goal for where you want to be 12 months from now or further.  But the further it goes out we start to forget about it. The accountability starts to drop.  So what we need to do is keep it right in our face. That’s what we need to do. 

So take a goal. Let’s say it was a money goal or a health goal. You’ve got to get really clear on the goal. Then also you have this whole where do I need to be in say 30 days? So if I wanted to lose 24 pounds, what would that look like 30 days from now? Do the math. That means I would have to lose 2 pounds in the next 30 days.  So in our heads that works so much easier. Losing 24 pounds a year from now or 12 months from now verses losing 2 pounds in the next 30 days, all of a sudden the mindset shifts.  You’re more accountable, game on, and you’re more likely to get that momentum going. You achieve it in 30 days.  You celebrate because it feels good that you actually accomplished just a piece of the goal. But you’ve got that momentum going. 

So if you want to achieve your goals, you may have to change your approach to how you’re doing it.  You can achieve goals in less than 30 days. It’s not a game being played here, it’s real. You just have to come up with a clear goal. If it’s a goal that’s way out there, a year or two years out, where do I need to be in a portion of it? Where do I need to be in 30 days, because it is real results.  It’s not your ultimate result, I understand that. But it’s a piece of it. And you have to go through that piece anyway to get to the next one to get to your ultimate goal. 

So you can achieve a goal or results in as little as 30 days. It will keep your energy completely excited. So here’s your action plan right here. What I would like you to do is write down a clear goal, what you want to do, a money goal, weight goal, eating better goal, relationship goal, whatever it is.  And if it goes beyond, if it’s a six month goal or beyond, just work it out, prorate it so to speak at what it will look like every 30 days. Get really focused on that first 30 days. Get excited about it and then get your plan put together and then you execute.  I’ve seen it work over and over and over. Ok.

So with that you can achieve it in 30 days. You just need to change your approach. You need to change the way you were doing it and I think this new way will certainly help you, it’ll keep your energy up, keep you excited about it, and you’ll start building some massive momentum and get some results in your life and keep you going forward. 

So with that I’m glad you stayed with me in this video. Once again, if you liked my video, please like it. Don’t keep me a secret. Go ahead and share this video with your friends, your family, Facebook, wherever you want to.  And I’m so welcoming any of your comments.  Either it’s a cool video Darryl, or hey I have a question for you, or I would like to see this in a future video.  I welcome all your comments so please go ahead and do that as well. So with that we’ll see you on the next video.
