5 Ways to Start Your Day Off Right

5 Ways to Start Your Day Off Right

Success occurs when opportunity meets preparation

Do you sometimes wake up and think of all the things you have to do in the day and just want to crawl back to bed?  Most of us have been there at least once or a hundred times. There are instances when I would wake up, turn off my alarm, and think about calling off work. Days like these can really ruin your whole day.

Getting up in the morning can be tough especially if you are not prepared for the day. But don’t worry, I will show you how to wake up and be ready for your day. Here are 5 ways to help you get in the right mindset and start your day off right.

  1. Start preparing the night before

The best way to start your day is to prepare the night before. People need to understand that getting a good night sleep is something your body needs in order to wake up energized. Not only will you wake up full of energy but it will help you feel better throughout the day. The best way to prepare at night is by having a goal and remember what you are working for. Having a goal will help you stay focus and motivated and work towards that goal. Another way is by turning off your television and especially turning off social media at an early time. Remember that the blue light that emits from your phone will interfere with your sleep and will keep you awake. Try to turn off your phone early at night so that you can get a good night sleep.

2. Do not go on social media

With the rise of social media and technology, millions of people wake up in the morning and go straight to their social media. I get it, you want to check your messages and look at some positive quotes and next thing you know you check the time and 45 minutes have passed. Now you start running around rushing to get out of the house. You forget to eat breakfast or prepare lunch and now your day started on the wrong foot. Before you go on social media you should first make sure that you are prepared for the day. Whether it’s taking a shower, doing your bed, or just saying a prayer.  Making sure that you focus on yourself first thing in the morning will help you start your day in a positive note.  Social media can be addictive but just remember your goals and dreams and you will defeat the addiction that is social media.

3. Make your bed

Making your bed can be an easy task that many people fail to perform. If you are wondering how making your bed will help in your day, here is the answer. As Admiral McRaven said in his speech, “if you want to change the world, start off by making your bed”.  Making your bed in the morning may be a small accomplishment but it is the first task that you will complete in the day. This task will set the tone of the day and will help you complete other tasks throughout the day. Starting off your day by completing a single task will encourage you to complete greater tasks. Not only will you feel encouraged but you will also feel happy that you have accomplished something early in the morning. Being happy and staying encourage is a great way to a successful day.

4. Exercise in the morning

Morning workouts can be very beneficial not only for your health but also to start your day off right. Researchers have found that people who exercise in the morning experience deeper, long sleep than those who exercise in the afternoon. As I mentioned in method one, getting a good night sleep is the best way to start your day off right. Make sure to exercise in the morning if you want to secure all of the sleep benefits. Additionally, working out on a regular basis will help you stay in shape, lower blood pressure, and keep you healthy. You can give it a try. Start by exercising once a week in the morning then twice a week and so on. You will feel better and have more energy for your daily routine.

5. Eat a well-balanced breakfast

Eating a well-balanced breakfast is super beneficial not only for your body but also for your day. Eating a healthy breakfast can help you by not over eating later in the day. Not only will you eat more in the day but you will also spend more money by buying more food. Instead of scrolling thru Instagram or Facebook, take five minutes in the morning to a make some oatmeal or cook some eggs. Eating breakfast will help jumpstart your metabolism and give you the energy that you need for a positive and productive day. Research shows that eating breakfast helps people focus more and have higher energy levels. Do not skip on these health benefits and start your day with a well-balanced breakfast.

Now that you know how to start your day off right, give it a try and let me know what you think.

Once you find that product then you can import the product to Amazon. You can easily upload pictures and descriptions from Aliexpress to your Amazon store. The great thing about dropshipping from Aliexpress to Amazon is that you don’t have to purchase any items before making a sell. This will ensure that you don’t lose any money even if you don’t sell at all.

Aliexpress dropshipping Amazon is very simple for new dropshipping starters. Once one of your products sells on Amazon, Aliexpress will get the order and Aliexpress will ship the item directly to the customer. This saves you the headaches of dealing with shipping and handling. Not only will you save money on shipping but you also don’t have to deal with the hassle of a storage place for your product.

As you can see, dropshipping with Aliexpress and Amazon is fairly easy and takes minimum effort. Not only will you make good profit but you can also increase your profits by setting your own prices.

The Fastest Way to Get Followers on Instagram

As we all know social media has a big influence on our daily lives. People pick up their phone and check their social media as soon as they wake up. You want to see who liked your post or who is following you but most importantly you want to know what’s trending. Trending on social media is everyone’s goal. The more you trend, the more followers and likes you will get on your page.

The only way to trend on social media is by going viral. But before you can go viral, first you need to have a large amount of followers on your platform. Instagram is one of the biggest social media platforms in the world and it just keeps growing daily.   

 Growing your Instagram audience can be hard. Like everything else, starting something is always the hardest part but it gets easier as you learn. Here I will show you the fastest way to grow your Instagram account. So, let’s get started.

If you are going to start a page from scratch then the first thing you need to do is to find a niche. A niche is a topic that has been narrowed down to target a specific group of people. Focus on a topic that is popular and that people are interested in. For the purpose of this blog I will use the example of dogs. You can even narrow the topic of dogs to a specific breed, like pit bulls or bulldogs. Dogs are very popular on Instagram and everywhere else on the internet.

Once you find your niche and create your Instagram account, you need to create at least ten posts before you start promoting your page. People will not follow you if you only have one or two pictures on your page. Make sure you have at least ten pictures of adorable puppies. Once you post some interesting pictures or videos then you can start to promote your page.  

Follow for follow is the ultimate way to start acquiring followers. The best way to use the follow for follow method is to search for similar pages as yours. For example, type “dogs” in the search section, there you will find the top posts and hashtags. Click on one of the post with the most likes. Now, go to the like section and start following the people that liked that post. The reason you want to do this is because the people that are liking pictures are more active and will be easier for them to follow you back if you have similar content.  

Additionally, you should go to the pages that you followed and like the first 3 or 4 posts. Doing so will increase your chances of them following you back. Once you start getting followers, you need to make sure that you are engaging with them. Make sure you like their post and leave a comment once in a while. This will increase the chances of them liking your posts and sharing your content.

The goal of follow for follow is to reach at least the one thousand or two thousand followers range. Once you have one thousand followers or more, your page will have a better chance of trending and you will no longer need to do follow for follow. In the meantime you need to make sure that you follow at least 50 people per hour and no more than one thousand per day. Obviously, not everyone will follow you back but if you can get at least 25% of them to follow you than that’s a big win for you.

Once you have over one thousand followers then you can start unfollowing the people that are not following you back. Make sure to only unfollow the people that are not following you back. Once you finish a cycle of reaching a thousand or two thousand followers then you can start the cycle again. You can decide to stop doing follow for follow after one or two thousand followers because if you have good content and post regularly then people will find you without this method. The follow for follow method is a really great method to gain followers fast. Be aware that it might take some time to reach one thousand followers so be patient and keep uploading content to your page. Remember that hard work pays off and if you put in the work you will eventually see results.

5 Ways to Make Money Online

There are countless of ways to make money online today. Whether it’s passive income or active income, there are ways for everyone to make money.  It all depends on how you want to make money and how much time you want to invest. Many people believe that making money online is hard and that it can’t be achieved. Nonetheless, if you put enough effort and time in your work, anything can be accomplished.

To get started, first you need to know how you want to make money. Do you want money right now, active income, or do you want to invest long term, passive income. Not only can you do this full time but you can also make money working a few hours a day.

There are different paths that you can take towards making money online but I suggest you focus on passive income if you really want to change your life. In the long run, passive income will allow you to be financially independent. No matter what method you take to making money online, you need to change your mindset and believe in yourself.

With all that said, here are 5 ways to make money online.

  1. Uber or Lyft

Working for Uber or Lyft is a good way to make active income. This method is a good way to make money if you have a car and have a couple of extra hours in your day. Not only is it easy to sign up but it requires no investment on your part. The only investment would be gas money but that’s about it. The great thing about Uber or Lyft is that it is very flexible. You can choose what hours to work as well as the days that you want to work. Uber claims that their drivers can make up to $25 per hour while Lyft claims drivers can make up to $35 an hour. All you have to do is pick up and drop off people around your city. The app will tell exactly who you are going to pick up and where they want you to drop them off.

2. EBay

Selling on eBay is very easy. All you have to do is create your account and start publishing what you want to sell. You can sell literally anything on eBay and there is always somebody out there willing to buy your product. If you sell your used clothes or used video games, than there is really no investing on your part and whatever money you make will be 100% profit. Selling on eBay is easy and can be very profitable.

3. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is a great way of making passive income. Using your social media or blog is the best way for affiliate marketing. Many websites such as Amazon and Shopify will pay you to redirect traffic to their websites. If you have an exponential amount of followers or traffic on your website, then being an affiliate marketer is the best way for you to make money online. All you have to do is post links of websites on your social media or blog and wait for people to click on the link. Affiliate marketing does take some time to start making money but it pays off in the long run. Being an affiliate marketer is very easy but the hard part is having a huge audience. Remember that acquiring your audience will take some time thus be patient and stay positive.

4. Teespring

If you have never heard of Teespring, here’s what you need to know. Teespring is a platform for custom merchandise. Teespring makes it very easy to make and sell custom t-shirts. To make money on Teespring.com all you have to do is create your own design, upload to the website and publish your post. It is very easy to do and requires zero investment. The way you make money is by commission. For every item you sell with your logo, you get a commission. This is a great way to make passive income. There are people that make nothing in one month but there are people that make thousands of dollars in a single week. Keep creating and publishing your shirts and watch how you start to make money in no time. Let me know if you would like to know more about this website and I will create a separate blog going more in depth in this subject.

5. Blogging

As many of you guys know having a blog can be very lucrative. But the first step to making money is to start the blog. Starting a blog is the hardest part of blogging. Starting a blog can sometimes be difficult but once you start it, it becomes easier. As a new blogger myself, I suggest to start your blog right away. Getting started is the first step to making passive income long term. Once you start your blog, you will need to have an audience. The more followers you have, the more traffic that you will be directing to your page. After you acquire a good amount of audience, then you can start to monetize your blog. Monetizing your blog can take some time but eventually money will start coming in and you will be rewarded for all your hard work.

Remember to always set a goal and follow your dreams. The time for making excuses is over. Go out there and start making money.

Daily Motivation

All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them-

The only way to make your dreams come true is by manifesting them into reality. To manifest your dreams into reality you need to first believe in yourself. Know that you are special and that you can do anything you set your mind to.

Next, you need to stay focused on your dreams and know exactly what you want. Another part of making your dreams come true is believing that you can achieve your dreams.

Always have goals and assign realistic deadlines to them. Wake up and work towards those goals. Keep hustling until you see progress and when you see progress, keep hustling some more.

Just remember that dreams don’t come true overnight. You need to get up and work hard. Your dreams will not come to you, you have to go to them.

Stay motivated and never give up.
