“Do not say, ‘It is morning,’ and dismiss it with a name of yesterday. See it for the first time as a newborn child that has no name.”
Rabindranath Tagore

Just as you become what you eat, you also become what you feed into your mind. Your mind is most receptive to new ideas first thing in the morning. You can accelerate the process of changing your thinking by starting off every morning by reading for 30 to 60 minutes in something uplifting and inspirational before you start your day.

Just as vigorous physical exercise in the morning will prepare you to be stronger and more resilient physically during the day, positive mental exercise in the form of inspirational reading will prepare you to be more mentally fit during the day.

The first hour of the morning is called the “rudder of the day.” Whatever you put into your mind in this “golden hour” sets the
tone of your thinking for the rest of the day. When you get up in the morning and, instead of reading the newspaper or watching television, you read something positive, constructive, and inspiring, you preprogram your mind for the hours ahead.

Throughout the day, things will go better for you. You will be calmer, more creative, and more alert. You will be more resilient in the face of difficulties. You will respond more effectively when you face the inevitable ups and downs of your daily life. Your early morning reading will have prepared you mentally to perform at your best.
