Successful People's Five Habits Before 8 AM

Posted on: 23rd November 2015

Wake up sleepyhead! Let the morning sunshine motivate you to lead a healthy and successful life. Why? Because studies prove if you do these five things early in the morning, you’ll be heading towards the summit of success sooner than you think.


Just take a look at some of these rich, famous and powerful people. Frank Lloyd Wright starts his day at 4 AM, Margaret Thatcher was on her feet at 5 AM every day, Robert Iger, Disney CEO, wakes at 4:30 AM, just to name a few. Before you complain about how you work best at night, you must consider the fact that morning people are proven to be more productive and more proactive, not to mention healthier and more in touch with their loved ones and their surroundings.

So, read on to find out the five things super successful people make a habit of before the clock strikes eight.

  1. Exercise.

It doesn’t matter if it is just a 10-minute walk or a full body workout at the gym – exercising is still one of the best habits of highly successful people. It jumpstarts your metabolism and gives you an energy boost you need for your busy day ahead, so you’ll feel better and look better. With health and aesthetics taken care of, you’re killing two birds with one stone. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment early in the morning, and greater determination to be productive for the rest of the day. Need I say more?


  1. To-do list.

It’s the glue that will keep you from falling apart or straying from the proverbial path. Early morning scheduling is what highly successful people do, as laying out their top priorities helps them achieve faster and better. And since your brain is still sharp and clear, especially after that morning exercise, you can determine what should be taken care of first. Everything else will fit into the available time you have.


  1. Healthy breakfast.

The most efficient and productive individuals in the world do not skip healthy breakfasts. Getting the fuel you need to face the big world ahead of you is necessary to awaken your senses, sharpen your memory, improve motor coordination and brighten your mood – all the essential elements to score personal and professional victories for the day. Eating a healthy breakfast also keeps you in tiptop shape, strengthens your immune system and keeps you away from common illnesses.


  1. Meditation.

This pre-dawn routine of highly successful people is what gives them a clear perspective, helps them problem-solve, and allows them to discover brilliant truths. This makes their daily goals much easier to achieve. In this chaotic and very competitive world, you must allot some quiet time for yourself to help keep everything else in proper order. Meditation makes you triumphant both at work and at home.


  1. Top-heavy day.

Highly successful people do not procrastinate, and even if they do, they don’t have time for it in the morning. They want to accomplish as many goals as they can in the morning, sometimes before the sun is even up. It’s not because they dread the night or treat the dark as their enemy, it’s just that getting busy when you wake is the right way to take advantage of your energy and enthusiasm.
