The 7 Aspects of Cleanness 158

Many things are given to us but we don’t use them in the right way and we often forget to keep them in a good condition.
Our body with all its organs, our senses, belongings and mind are our partners in life. That is why we must treat them well and give them the attention they deserve.

Here is a list of some of the things we use every day but are careless of. Let this post be the inspiration you need to change that and substitute everything negative in your life for its positive equivalent.

 Clean body – personal hygiene is one of the most important things for someone who is willing to become successful. It is a must, because regardless of your achievements and actions, if you look grubby and dirty no one is going to take you seriously. This will affect your work performance, relationships and public appearances.
Your body is your temple, so keep it as clean as you can. Take a shower once/twice a day, brush your teeth, wash your hair, hands and face and look splendid.

 Clean clothes – you should keep your clothes neat, stainless and ironed. It is okay if they aren’t first class, expensive or made by famous designers. Even if they are from a second-hand shop, you can still keep them in a good condition.
Wear them with the right accessories and attitude, and if you add to that the smell of a nice perfume, be sure that everyone will cast a second glance at you on the street after you pass them.

 Clear mind – this is a state, in which there are no doubts and prejudices in your head. You will be able to think without any distractions. There will be no confusions and worries but above all, no negative thoughts.
A clear mind generates only positive mantras, peaceful ideas and harmony. That is why every now and then you need to empty it and just concentrate on your breathing, for instance. Close your eyes and let the stillness surround you.

 Clean diet – you are what you eat and as you know, junk food and processed foods only harm and destroy your organism, especially the stomach.

Drink much water, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, provide yourself with the needed amount and combination of proteins, carbs and fats. Do that every few hours and never overeat. This way you will have energy for the whole day, will be in a good mood and won’t feel heavy. Taking all ingredients and vitamins your body wants will also make you feel and look fresh, make your skin look better and combined with sports, will help you achieve the body of your dreams.

 Clean heart – release all the hatred, pain, malice, envy and sorrow you’ve harbored for years. Free yourself and open your heart for the love, happiness and peace that are all around you. Eliminate the feelings you have for the people you don’t like and pay attention to the ones who’ve always been there for you.

 Clear speechcontrol what you say. Don’t gossip and talk about other people’s lives because discussing them speaks more about the kind of person you are. Never swear, because bad and negative words destroy your kindness and make others avoid your company. Remove every word that is not positive from your vocabulary.

Don’t lie. It is a sin whether you are religious or not. Don’t give empty promises and don’t reveal people’s secrets. Use normal intonation and try to make your voice pleasant.
Try to speak honestly, slowly, so that everyone can understand what you say, and energetically so that the people around you can share your enthusiasm.

Words can be very powerful if they are used in the right way. If your job includes public speaking, take that as a chance to be the inspiration for your listeners. Your words can change someone’s life. If you make presentations or meet with business clients, choose wisely what exactly to say and respect the etiquette of the company.

 Clean hearing – you hear hundreds of things every day (news, opinions, stories, gossips, arguments, screams, music, noises, etc.) but only you decide which one to let into your head and how to react.

People will never stop judging, criticizing and talking about you. The best you can do is to accept that as a compliment because of the attention they pay to your life, and move on. As long as you don’t judge them everything will be okay. But once you let their comments affect your life, things can get pretty ugly.

You decide what music to hear. One type of it can relax your mind and body, another can have a bad influence on them.
Try to listen to beautiful things – inspirational stories of people you admire, the laughter of your children, the sounds of nature, good advice. Go to an opera, hear what the person you love has to tell you, go to motivational seminars and so on.

Cleanness and purity are possible. Find your way to improve your speaking, appearance, body, mind and everything else. It may take time but once you’ve decided you want to change and embrace positivity, you will have already won a great battle with yourself.

10 Things Uber Successful People Do in the Morning

Who doesn’t want to be successful? Whatever our purpose in life may be, we want to achieve success with it. Although success is usually perceived as career growth, it also encompasses personal growth. These two things go together.

So what can we do to reach the personal and professional growth of uber successful people? Maybe we can imitate some of their habits. Their morning rituals, in particular, set the pace of the day.

Did you know that the way you start your mornings affects your entire day?

You probably felt that, but guess what: science proves it as a fact, too.

In a study called “Waking up on the wrong side of the bed: start-of-workday mood, work events, employee affect, and performance,” researchers found that whatever the mood of workers was during the morning, they preserved it throughout the entire day.

So if you start off in a good mood, you have greater chances of having a great day. That’s why morning routines are so important.

Let’s learn from the ultra successful people, shall we? How do they start their mornings?

What The Most Successful Do in The Morning

1. Spend Time with the Partner.

relationships

As we said, success is not only about professional achievements. It also means having the right person by your side.

Take Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan as an example. They are both crazy successful, and they are definitely happy to have each other.

Waking up next to the person you love makes every morning special. Appreciate that moment. Have a coffee together. Talk. Be glad you’re there for each other.

2. Mindfulness.

Yes; mindfulness is a habit.

Successful people are always busy. Can you imagine a hectic morning with dozens of urgent email messages, business partners calling, and the kids yelling? And they are still in their pajamas! That’s why they practice mindfulness.

Researchers from The University of Sydney found that mindfulness reduces work-related stress and improves the mood at work. That’s why successful people always seem ready to deal with any situation.

So how do you practice mindfulness in the morning?

Just wake up. Take few deep breaths. Be aware of the present moment. Be aware of the responsibilities the day ahead will bring. Relax, and tell yourself that you’re ready.

3. Plan the Day.

A good plan will set you on the right track.

Plan your tasks for the day in the morning. When you have such an outline, it will be easier to handle all responsibilities. You’ll know you’ll have time for all tasks.

If you realize there’s not enough time, you should plan how to outsource. If, for example, you cannot complete a business report, you can hire assignment masters to write or edit it for you.

4. Exercise.

I know; it’s a cliché. However, it’s also an activity that works.

Physical exercise makes you fitter, but it also makes you happierWhen you’re done with your morning exercise ritual, you feel at ease, and things start to clear up.

Most successful people exercise. Hillary Clinton does yoga. Obama works out for 45 minutes six days per week. Mark Cuban does cardio fitness. Follow their example!

5. Practice Patience.

Too many things ahead? If your schedule is busy, you’ll be eager to get things done ASAP. The morning is the period of the day when you should practice patience. Relax.

You already made a plan. There’s time for everything. You’ll get through the day. For now, cherish this precious moment of morning relaxation.

6. Juice Up.

How to Win The 9-to-5 Battle by Staying Healthy at Work letsreachsuccess.com

It’s no wonder why so many celebrities are into the latest juice detox trend. Healthy juices give you valuable nutrients and make you feel more energized.

Have a different juice every single morning. Sure, the juicer will take some cleaning after, but the juice will certainly give you enough energy for that.

7. Eat Breakfast.

You saw this coming, didn’t you?

Uber successful people know that the breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s even better when it’s healthy.

Yes; the juice can be your breakfast, but it won’t make you feel full for long. If you don’t intend to have a standard breakfast, pack some fruit for work. A banana and an apple are mandatory!

8. Hydrate.

Have a glass of water as soon as you wake up. Hydration is essential for the way your entire system functions.

9. Be With the Right People.

In Tools of Titans, author Timothy Ferriss refers to a so-called “five chimps theory” in zoology. According to that theory, you can predict the behavior of any chimp if you analyze the five chimps they usually hang out with.

There’s a lot of wisdom in that theory. When you surround with nervous people, you’re nervous, too. When you surround yourself with positive characters, you reflect good vibes, too.

The first people you contact in the morning will set the mood for your day. Choose them carefully.

10. Celebrate Achievements.

When you wake up with a positive mindset, you’ll boost your chances of spending a good day.

Instead of thinking about all obstacles ahead, you should take time to think about all achievements you’ve made towards your current goals. This appreciation will convince you that you’re on the right track.

When we sum things up, all these morning habits of the ultra successful people seem pretty simple, don’t they?

However, it takes tons of persistence and commitment to stay true to them. Start by making small steps. Pick few of these activities and repeat them every day, until they turn into habits.
