5 Ancient “High-Performance” Strategies To Build Your Business Faster & Easier WITHOUT Stress, Frustration & Anxiety
Hydration is very, very, very important. I know we’re all told to drink more water, but until we really know the true value of it and how that can actually attribute to your success we always forget about and we typically go for the coffee or for the tea or for the five hour energy drink or whatever drink we can get our hands on to get that fabricated energy that we desire and that we’re seeking.
I know for me I’m not really a big coffee drinker and most recent I was into like juices and all different things like that, but when I realized that how important drinking water is, especially first thing in the morning, because when you wake up you’ve just been sleeping for eight hours.
What happens when you’re sleeping for eight hours, guess what? You dehydrate over that time so when you wake up in the morning and the first thing is coffee or something like that, it’ll hinder you big-time so definitely don’t want to do that. You want to start off with a big glass of water.
What’ll happen is that first drink of water is going to give you optimal brain function because your brain is like 75% water and so it’s very, very important to have as much water as possible. Studies have literally shown that fluid loss in the body impairs mood, concentration and memory and it induces anxiety and fatigue.
If you increase your water intake this can actually speed up your metabolism. If you’re looking for things to lose weight and things of that nature or clearer skin, and it also helps with you when it comes to your brain performance. I know for me when I first drank that, because in the morning I like to drink two bottles of water, so when I first get that in it helps me wake up actually.
I wake up, I typically set my alarm clock for [4:30] and I get up and I get going. When I drink my water that wakes me up big-time. Also, for maximum performance throughout your day you should really want to shoot for drinking three to four liters of water a day.
That’s about let’s say eight 16 ounce glasses, or the way I like to look at it, I just say eight bottled waters. That could be anywhere from six to eight bottled waters. Three liters would be six bottled waters, four liters would be eight bottled waters. I like to shoot for eight bottled waters a day.
That’s a complete game changer. I can promise you that. It’s definitely a habit that I’m committed to going into 2017, so I hope you’ll join me.
One of my clients actually taught me about stretching and how important this is because when we first wake up we are caught somewhere between our conscious and our unconscious minds. When you allow yourself a simple stretch you bridge the gap and you become more conscious in what you set your day out to do.
That’s very, very important. The stretch connects the mind with the body and is a simple practice of self-care and you bring a peaceful state in your day because state is what it’s all about. Stretching can be a huge benefit.
#3. Intense Exercise
Now we can essentially hack our brains by getting a vigorous exercise going, such as running or some high interval training, some people call it HIT training or crossfit or just your favorite workout, whatever that could be. It could be jumping up and down, running up and down the steps or whatever, just to get your heart pumping and the sweat dripping.
When you do this my friend, you release these fluids in your body called dopamine and serotonin and these are basically the feel-good chemicals in your brain, allowing you to feel sharp and ready to take on your day. You want to do this kind of intense training at least 20 to 30 minutes a day, at least four to five days a week or more.
I’m going to break those down. When you take on the meditate, you open up the part of the brain that accessing creativity or what people call flow. Now if you’re new to medication like I was, I have a really cool one that I would recommend. It’s only a 10 minute meditation and you can actually get it for free.
It’s called the Ananda Meditation app. If you go to your app store and just download the Ananda App by Deepak Chopra, and you can get it for 100% free. They have some others that you can buy on there but the free one is really, really good and it’s only 10 minutes so it doesn’t take up a lot of your time.
Now I actually listen to this in the morning. It really helps me to get things going. I’m actually going to incorporate it as I do it late-night because I want to start doing a morning routine and a nightly routine so I’m going to be incorporating that with my nightly routine.
Now prayer, now this is allows you to trust and let go of any worry about your day. Knowing that you have divine guidance and assistance in everything that you do. Now I recently read a phrase, actually earlier today, it said, “Where we are worrying the most, we are trusting god the least.” Ask yourself, where do you worry? How can you let that go and begin to trust? They’re very important.
Another one, intention. You want to set a simple intention for each day. It may even be my intention for the is to be present and notice everything around me and that I can be grateful for or my intention is to see love in everything and everyone including me. This can be completely unique to you my friend.
Check in to see what it is that you need to do everyday and you can create a powerful intention around it. What do you intend to get out of today? What do you intend to create? They’re very important.
Journaling really grounds us. This is huge. This is something, a habit I took on this year and I’m definitely taking into the new year as well, when you write openly and honestly about where you are in your life, what you’re proud of and what you wish to change. If you need a good place to start, start a gratitude journal basically.
You can jot down the simple things you are grateful for all the way to the big things. This sets your mind and heart up for abundance and it’s great to look back and see how far you’ve come on your journey of growth. Very, very important. One of the tools that I recommend which will help you journal, because I used to have so many thoughts I didn’t know where to start, one of the things that really helped me big-time was called the Five Minute Journal.
It’s the Five Minute Journal. Very, very, very, very powerful. Very, very powerful stuff. That’s one of the ones I recommend. There’s another one called the Freedom Journal which is really, really good. I use both of those. I actually do those in the morning. I do those in the morning and I write my goals every day.
Every morning I write my goals out every day, which is very, very powerful. That’s my recommendation for you today my friend. Ask yourself, even if you don’t just adopt all five of these immediately, which I recommend starting to do, which ones are you going to start with?

I am definitely doing all of these except journaling. I know I need to do it. I was doing it at one time and I wold just write and write and write. It felt like I was journaling too much!!! I get up early, but it felt like journaling was taking up all my morning time even though I felt great and loved it every morning. Marquel, when and how do you journal?
Cirilo I used the 5 Minute Journal! It’s worked wonders for me!
