If you’re thinking of writing a book, one of the most beneficial things you can do (at least for most people) is have a writing routine.

I’ve written several books, created countless information products and launched quite a few live trainings. All of this, and more, was accomplished by having routines and discipline while creating the “thing.”

One of the best things we can do for ourselves is have routines. Sure, it’s great to be spontaneous, but routines allow us the space for spontaneity. Routines allow us to stay focused on an end result. Routines teach us a level of discipline that is necessary to achieve results.

The best place to begin your routine ritual is in the morning. My morning rituals include quiet time for meditation, journal writing, exercise which includes running a few miles 5 – 6 days a week and hitting the gym at least three days a week for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Included in my morning ritual is eating something to sustain my health, taking high powered vitamins and drinking water infused with lemon, cucumbers and watermelon. This is a great remedy for removing toxins in my system. It’s super easy to fix and tastes great.

Many people have trouble with their habits because they don’t follow a morning routine that gives them consistency. When you set yourself up for success through morning routines, you’re much more likely to have the success you desire.

It’s all about choice and desire. What kind of life to you choose and what do you desire to achieve?

When I am living a healthy lifestyle which includes what I eat, how much movement I have, taking the right supplements, my spiritual well-being, etc., I am happier and what can be stressful is very manageable. When I don’t take care of myself, my perception and mindset can work against me.

The bottom-line is this; I want to live the highest quality of life I can. In many ways, I live a very simple life. I’ve been in a 27-year relationship, I love my animals, I get great joy from doing simple things in life, and I love writing, speaking and being a positive influence in the lives of others. I’m also passionate about educating people on the love and care of animals, especially rescue animals.

All of this supports my ability to perform in my business including when I am writing a book or creating an information product (or writing a blog post LOL)

Speaking of writing books, one thing that has to happen, if you want to experience optimal results in sales, is to have a formal launch for your book. Launching a book takes focus because there are many moving parts to a launch. One is getting media coverage including interviews.

Imagine how much better you will do on interviews if you are focused, feeling great, and clear headed.

A great outcome of a good, even great, interview is often show hosts seek you out which creates more success for your book.

It all boils down to the type of routines you’ve set up… or not.
