We are all creatures of habit – and if our daily routine (especially our routine during the first few hours of the day) gets messed up, we can feel off-balanced and harassed the rest of the day.
So when I jumped into the chaotic entrepreneurship life, I knew I needed a daily morning routine. That routine starts with me waking up around 5:30am, reading a prayer that I wrote, writing into my gratitude journal, generating a quick-win for a client, and then having breakfast.
This is the personal prayer that I read daily upon waking up. May it keep you balanced for the rest of the day, as it does me.
Thank you for putting the fire in me to be an entrepreneur. If this is your will for my life, help me set this fire ablaze so that I can provide light to my family, my community, and my customers. I ask for strength, wisdom, perseverance to see this thru. Please take care of my family. Please guard my health. Please help me do things righteously.
I thank you for the blessings you have given me and my family. I thank you for the opportunities you’ve opened up. I thank you for the many people I met along the way who have provided help and support.
Should this path be not your will, give me understanding and peace to accept the other path I am supposed to take.
I lift my life to you. I lift my plans to you. I let go of my own desires and leave my heart for you to fill with what I am supposed to do. I offer my hands – use them for your works.
In Jesus Name,
“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
“I can do all things thru Christ who gives me strength.”
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”
“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”
