"Well begun is half done." - Aristotle (and Mary Poppins). A successful morning always begins with preparations made the night before. Our first homework assignment is to carefully follow the three steps we've outlined each evening before bed so you'll be halfway to morning routine success before your alarm even sounds!
It's going to be a great day! The plan is set - simply walk in it. In time, this morning routine will become a favored ritual. It builds the framework you need to take great care of yourself. If you don't care for yourself...you won't be able to care well for the others in your realm of influence.
"Truth Therapy" is the clinical name for our Daily Declaration. Becoming a pro at listening to yourself talk takes practice. Most of us have habitually ignored our own self-talk, much like white noise from a fan (or tuning out your 3-year-old's steady stream of questions). This week we'll begin to tune in more, learn to monitor our thoughts and, consequentially, our actions by speaking truth.
