“It’s not so much about what the morning brings; it’s what you bring to the morning” ? Bernard Kelvin Clive
The question I have for you today is what are you bring to the morning daily – the morning of your life and brand, could be your beginnings, the early stages.
What do you envision, what do you desire to achieve, what are you willing to sacrifice to get you what you want and most importantly what are beliefs(values)?
A cursory study of successful personal brands reveals that these individuals have some daily habits that shape their lives, hence their brands.
I will be sharing with you 3 of the 7 main daily rituals of successful personal brands.
3 Morning Rituals to Impact Your Personal brand
1. They are Early Risers:
“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” – Ancient Proverb

The quietness of the morning atmosphere inspires many great ideas and calms the heart. Consider from 12 midnights to 6 AM.
Jesus had the habit of waking up early before day, read Mark 1:35.
“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.”
