A big difference between "right now me" and "future me" could possibly be my early morning routine. I'm a mom of 4 (ages 15, 9, 5, and 5 months) with a fiancé and dreams of owning a business and taking vacations for half the year, but I lay in my bed for about an hour after I wake up scrolling on Facebook and Tiktok. It sucks to admit, but I have to own it in order to fix it because according to my dreams, this ain't gonna work.
I figure it could be my morning routine because on the days when I wake up early, stretch, shower, and eat a small breakfast, my day is great! And by the time I take my last shower, I still have enough energy to... well... yea.
But the days when I stay in bed scrolling and "working" on my laptop, I tend to feel cold, lazy, depressed, and highly irritated. When I do get up, it's only for a snack and to use the bathroom. My body hurts so much and I don't want to do anything for myself... So I ask the kids to bring me this or that.
Being a mom of 4 with habits like that does not create a strong legacy.
Since I want to leave my kids with something besides a section 8 apartment and a FAFSA application, I've been making some major and minor adjustments to my everyday life because my everyday life affects my children's children's futures
(that's my grandkids).
So I looked up "Millionaire morning routines" on google and found these photos of millionaire morning schedules. I chose one and created a poster with it:
I felt like it was important for me to actually put some work into creating this poster instead of printing it off and putting it on the wall. As I was creating it, I felt a stronger connection to the goal. I felt like this might really show a big difference in my life and work ethic.
I put it on my wall in the bathroom by the mirror so that whenever I had to use the restroom I can see it.
I know somebody might say it's lame or it's not gonna work. But I know even more of you would probably try this yourself and notice a difference in your own life. Sometimes just knowing better doesn't always mean you're going to do better. We need reminders sometimes. We need help. that's why we have traffic signals, to help us safely get to where we're trying to go.
And I'm trying to get to that successful business with my fiancé, 4 kids, and half-year vacations. So, One day at a time, one step at a time, I'll have the million mom habits I need to get to where I want to go.
