The Elements Of A Healthy Daily Personal Development Practice

As we practice applying Law of Attraction and develop our daily personal development practice, it becomes abundantly clear that everything we achieve out of life is driven by our habits.

So it stands to reason that, no matter what you wish to create in your life, it’s applying a consistent daily practice – a routine – that will strengthen the good thinking habits.

In our experience, we’ve learned to apply some very basic elements into our daily routine that have become strong habits and which have served to strengthen our ability to deliberately apply Law of Attraction in our lives.

So let’s talk about your daily routine in more detail.
If one or more of these elements is missing from your routine, you may find yourself struggling in one or more areas of your life.


  1. Personal Development every day

    As John Henry Newman said, “Growth is the only evidence of life”.

    So contribute to your growth as a leader in your life by spending focused time on your personal growth and development every day.

    Or don’t, in which case you are really choosing to stop living.

    Spend 20 minutes writing out your goals and affirmations. Listen to a CD. Read an inspiring book. Learn from the masters. Feed yourself every day with positive thoughts and messages.

  2. Visualization & meditation every day

    Immediately following your personal development time, take the time to quiet your mind and connect with who you intend to be – the CEO of you, the leader of you, the inspiring leader of your own life who has massive results and success at whatever you choose.

    Visualize you having achieved your goals. Feel it. Smell it. Taste it.
    Relax and enjoy it. Bask in it.

    Where are you living? What does your house look like? Are you working from your office or pool side? How much money do you have in your bank account?

    Design your life in your mind, remind yourself of who you are being, and ready yourself to have positive conversations throughout your day.

    Be clearly on purpose before you pick up the phone or meet with people.

    And revisit the life you’ve designed in your mind every day.

    “Golden Time” three to four days a week

  3. Establish your golden time.

    It’s your uninterrupted time spent only on activities that will move you closer to your goals.

    What are those activities? The more time you spend visualizing the clearer the path to follow to get there will become. You will find yourself inspired to take actions – your inner voice will begin to guide you.

    That means calling people. It means having conversations.

    It means demonstrating the leader that you are to yourself and following your inspiration. Perhaps it’s taking a course, or undertaking project, or starting a home business.

    Guard your golden time. Protect it jealously.

    Spend a minimum of two uninterrupted hours, three to four days a week.

    Every week.

    It is in this time that you ultimately make your dreams come true. It is this time that you are taking the action that needs to be taken.

    Always be true to your golden time.

  4. Set the expectation of leadership

    Set the expectation of leadership in everything you do. This includes a number of things.

    Firstly, as I keep repeating over and over again (are you tired of hearing this yet?) – be the leader of you. Do this consistently at all times and you will be very effectively demonstrating to the universe and, more importantly to yourself, that you have integrity as a leader.

    Also, expect everyone else in your life to take personal responsibility for their actions. Call them on it if they don’t. This way you are being a true friend and empowering those in your life to follow your leadership example.

    And of course, we’ve already established that you take personal responsibility for your own actions, right?

  5. Mastermind with others

    Spend time with others who are successful in what they do and are effective leaders. These may be people you already know, such as business associates, friends or co-workers. Or you may need to start to make new friends and build new networks in your community.

    Other leaders are easy to spot. They are successful.

    Build relationships with them. Exchange ideas.

    You learn the most from people who are already accomplishing that to which you aspire.

    Surround yourself with people who support your greatness. And be a stand for others’ greatness as well.

    Make a point of hanging around with people who will help you get better.

    Spend at least 30 minutes masterminding every day.

    It may take the form of a phone conversation. Or a lunch. Or exchanging emails. Or listening to a presentation. Or joining a club or association.

    It doesn’t matter so long as you make a habit of doing it every day.

Applying these five elements of a successful daily routine will ensure you maintain a healthy mindset and high energy. They will make you more effective in all aspects of your life.

So, embrace your daily personal development practice and incorporate all five elements into your daily routine. Do it consistently. Do it without fail.

Your results will amaze you.
