Do you have a morning ritual that helps you focus and be motivated throughout the day? What do you watch or listen to in the morning, as you get ready for work or on your way to work?
Did you know that the way you spend your morning is deciding in how the rest of your day is going to look like? Have you ever woken up in a bad mood and felt like your whole day was screwed in advance, or got up happy and not even the most unpleasant person could kill your joy? Do you sometimes drag your feet to work? Oh, Monday mornings are not easy! People don’t realize that what they watch, read or listen to plays a huge role in how they think and act. Gandhi said something powerful that you should pay close attention to: “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” That’s why you have to be selective about the information you allow in your mind and the people you welcome in your circle. Listening to music in the morning may put you in a good mood but does it really affect your performance at work? Does it help you focus on what matters, on achieving your goals, on finding your center, finding inner-peace? Does it help you stay down to earth or does it take you away from reality (which makes things even harder when you eventually do come back to reality)?
Whether you wake up in a good or bad mood, listening to motivational podcasts is a fantastic way to deepen your motivation and help you focus on demolishing your goals. Here are seven amazing podcasts that will assuredly brighten your days, inspire and motivate you beyond measure.
