Whatever you say to yourself in the morning, it will most likely come true during the day. Why not taking advantage of it? Create a simple morning phrase and say it to yourself first thing in the morning. It’s that simple.
But there’s a trick here: you have to make your phrase realistic, empowering and easy to remember. If you just set yourself up to unrealistic things in the morning, the day will follow. A morning phrase should be practical and plausible.
It should also be simple enough to recall at any given time during the day. Try make it the first thing you read in the morning, until you learn it by heart. Then pick another one and then another one.
A morning phrase will actually make you write the story of your life, word by word.
How To Craft Your Own Morning Phrase
There is a certain feeling of embarrassment when it comes to saying things out loud to yourself. I totally understand that. Especially when you do this first thing in the morning. It feels awkward.
But it’s effective.
We have a mind wired in such a way that, eventually, whatever you say to yourself will become true.
So, how to make a morning phrase? Start every evening with just three things you want to accomplish tomorrow. Just three. Doesn’t matter if they’re business related or family related, if they’re spreading across many days or just for a few hours. Imagine three things you absolutely want to do, somehow, tomorrow. Then combine them.
Look at the phrase first thing every morning. If you really want to go overboard with this, set 3 alarms during the day with the same text. Again, in order to shut off the alarm, you’ll see the text again.
Don’t underestimate this. A silly, almost dumb thing like this can have a huge impact on your day.
Try it for a few weeks and see how you feel.
