THE POWER OF GROUNDING ONESELF - DAILY!
GROUNDING, CENTERING, REMINDING, EMPOWERING, INSPIRING ONESELF
THIS TIME IS ESSENTIAL FOR LIVING A GREAT LIFE
Called by various names, those people who are most successful at and in life use special, powerful grounding sessions:
"The golden hour"
"The Miracle Morning" (Tm, Hal Elrod)
USE THESE TOOLS/PRACTICES
To do this, I use my Re-Minders Notebook, so that I can access input that centers me, reminds me of what is inspiring and empowering, has me recall what I want in life and how to get there. You can set up a list, which you can revise over time and refer to in your notebook, of which things you want to read daily and which you may wish to visit weekly or monthly to remind you of the pieces of knowing you have a great life (or can create one).
See the examples:
Example Notebook, what I use:
While this is about assuring that you'll be in your power every day, and happy, there are other practices which help do this over the longer term (also).
If one does journalling, one can benefit. But if one does journaling in a very directed, organized way, one can also be a Life Champion in a relatively short period. For instance, The Improvement Journal can be very, very powerful, using one of the oldest power methods invented by philosophers and personal development mentors - daily, small improvements from observations (paying attention!) and reflection. And the other journals can be useful: The Journals (types of journals).
DIFFERENT WAYS OF GROUNDING
For some people their perspective, creativity, peace creating times occurs during their jogging time.
Michael Bloomberg, when he was young and working 12 hours a day, got his perspective and his ideas when he was out for his morning run. (He's now worth something like $16 billion, was the Mayor Of New York for a long time, and an incredible philanthropist.)
All of the people, except for one (who faltered a bit later), in my "study group" of top financial advisors (about 15 of us) around the country made sure to get in their runs, no matter how busy they were.
AND THERE ARE DIFFERENT NEEDS
People are different. Some are already confident and certain in some areas. Some originally needed the grounding but have now repeated it so often and learned it so well that it is actually installed and automatic (aka a "habit" of thought).
You could customize your own grounding, centering sessions by seeing what you do or do not have already handled based on the Pre-Flight Checklist.
SOME COMPONENTS FOR THIS PROCESS
Planning one's day out, for each hour, grounds oneself in a greater sense of certainty and intention, plus it serves as a guide, so not as many decisions need to be made when you are at a lower level of energy.
Reading philosophy, about life, some positive progress type of stuff is also very empowering. Many people do this for a half hour in the morning. (I do it while walking on a high incline at about 3 mph on the treadmill - it make exercise easy and quite pleasant and something to look forward to. Best to have the treadmill at home.
