All the small activities that we do (or don’t do) daily determine our success or failure.
To verify this, I decided to spend 1 day with the most successful people to check their daily routine-elite first-generation entrepreneurs, top performers in sports, arts, etc.
Later, I also spent 1 day with people who, I believed lived a mediocre unsuccessful life in a relatively lower-middle-class environment.
My observations were astonishing. The average wake-up time of the successful ones was 5:30 am and that of the mediocre was 8:00 am.
The successful ones either meditated or did yoga or jogging or weight training for 20 to 40 minutes.
On the other hand, almost all the mediocre families switched on their TV Sets in the morning. Although they didn’t watch the TV, it kept playing passively in the background while they did their household activities.
The successful achievers had a rough plan for the day written in their diary the previous night. This was missing amongst the mediocre.
If we do things other successful people do, over and over again, we will eventually get the same results they got.
Nature is neutral. It does not favor one person over another.
