09 Sep 8 morning questions to get your day off to a great start
Ask yourself these questions every morning and create more happiness each and every day!
Do you need help focusing on what matters most?
If you think happiness and success means making lots of money and buying lots of stuff, the answer to this question is yes.
Dirty, wrinkled sketches of dead presidents have never made anyone happy in the long run. And how can you expect to be successful if you’re not happy? Money helps along the way, but only you can make yourself happy and successful from the inside out. There isn’t any amount of money that can buy that.
Real happiness and success comes from the quality of your attitude, your relationships, and the emotions you experience each day. That’s where the questions below come in. Ask yourself these questions every morning and I absolutely guarantee that your days will get happier and more prolific over time:

1. What is the most important thing I can do today for my own well-being?
If you don’t take good care of yourself, then you can’t take good care of others either; which is why taking care of yourself is the best selfish thing you can do.
Every new day is a chance to change your life. Work on making life all that you want it to be. Work hard for what you believe, and keep your dreams big and your worries small. Figure out how you can best serve yourself today.
Remember, you never need to carry more than you can hold, just take one small step at a time. And while you’re out there today making decisions instead of excuses, learning new things, and getting closer and closer to your goals, know that there are others out there, like me, who admire your efforts and are striving for greatness too.
2. How can I show my love to those I love?
You don’t need to be perfect to be a perfect friend or lover, but the commitment to your relationship is a precious responsibility. Relationships last a lifetime only when two people make a deliberate choice to keep it, fight for it, and work for it. These acts of love don’t need to be extravagant either; they just need to be true. And true love is always shown in deeds, not just words.
Also, remember that it’s not so much about what you do for your loved ones as it is about the love you put into what you do for them. Learn what matters most to them and make a habit of it. (Angel and I discuss this in more detail in the “Relationships” chapter of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)
3. How can I encourage myself and others today?
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar said that, and nothing could be closer to the truth.
To accomplish great things, you must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe. Be a dreamer, a believer, and a courageous and cheerful thinker. Be a positive motivator, a productive doer, and a go-getter who keeps her head in the clouds and her feet on the ground. Let the spirit of passion and possibility ignite a fire within you to do something worthwhile today, and don’t forget to spread your enthusiasm to those around you…
