If you can incorporate the following three habits into your life you will have the foundation to achieve whatever you want.
- Meditate to start your day; without exception.
When was the last time you felt peace knowing that you were on track with your goals?
If it’s been a while I am going to guess you haven’t meditated on a regular basis. Taking time to clear your mind, get still and allow your mind and body to connect in a serene environment can literally take you from good to great. It’s the foundational work to set the stage for your ultimate achievements.
- Journal right after meditating; without exception.
Taking the time to physically type or write down the thoughts and feelings that come to your mind during meditation will do something incredible for you.
When you write down what inspired you it takes that information and makes it accessible in your long term memory. When you write down HOW you were inspired it turns it into applicable knowledge. During the stillness of meditation you will have many inspired thoughts and emotion that are there to serve your greater good. Writing them down stores them so that they stay with you.
- Writing down five things that went right for the day.
Even the most difficult days have a silver lining.
There is a lesson, a tender mercy, a sign of the greatness of life buried in the most challenging day. As they say; what you focus on, expands. Taking time before bed to write in your journal what things went right will allow your mind and emotions to be in a space of expansion as you head to sleep. This will provide you a theme of positivity during your dream state. It may sound like unicorns and rainbows but it’s absolutely proven to be true.
If you’re willing to apply these three habits to your life you will have all you need to succeed. Or at least, you’ll be open for the growth necessary to achieve the success you desire.
Yesterday at the close of my day I erased my white board..
It had all the changes that I wanted to map out for RulesofSuccess.com and how my content was made available to anyone who visited my site. #linkinbio..
Today, I start fresh. My focus is on a different part of my business, and this board represents a new, fresh look..
A new way..
A new result..
It’s the fertile soil to which I will plant the seeds of my change..
In a word; YES!
I will admit that after seeing the film for the first time, I was a bit disappointed. I hadn’t read the book but had watched the five minute trailer a dozen or so times (see below).
The trailer was just epic. It was the perfect introduction to the stories of Cloud Atlas and showed all the characters and how the stories lead into each other. It weaved the tale of multiple lifetimes being played out through the same individuals and perfectly interlaced the different stories with a perfectly chosen voice over that was all accompanied by the film score and M83’s Outro.
It’s quite literally the best trailer ever. Watching the trailer I thought I was in for an easy movie to follow and one I’d enjoy without effort.

I am thankful for this reminder.
