Is It Really Possible for Busy Advisors to Gain Mastery Over the Chaos
That Blows Through Their Lives.
What if you could:
- Tap the source of energy, power, motivation and commitment…
- Recharge your battery, manage your day, and inoculate yourself against
the chaos and negativity
- Fine-tune your current time-management and priority-setting approach…
I'm writing to you today because I want to tell you about a simple success
strategy that's been floating around in the ether for decades, creating
success stories everywhere it goes. Maybe you've heard of it, maybe you
haven't. It's called the Daily Success Ritual.
What if you had the power to make every day a good day? Not just a good
day, a great day? What if you could tap a deep reservoir of confidence
whenever you needed a boost, and approach every challenge as the absolute
best version of yourself: clearheaded, strong, and positive?
Start 2013 With a Renewed Focus
What if you had a bulletproof technique to help stay focused, calm and
possessed of a positive outlook, every single day, no exceptions?
That kind of balance is achievable. We've seen evidence of it in advisors
from all over the country.
Back in 2011, we featured an article by one of our regular contributors,
success coach Jim Rohrbach. The topic of the article was Daily Success Rituals.
We figured our clients would enjoy the article, maybe pick up a few tips
for adding some structure to their daily routine, and that would be that.
But we were wrong.
The response from the article A 5-Step Morning Success Ritual
was overwhelming. Advisors wanted to share stories, exchange strategies,
communicate on an in-depth, personal level about why their Success Ritual
is so effective for them. It really seemed to strike a chord. The article
became a top rated Horsesmouth article for 2011.
So we got curious.
The next thing we did was to run a survey to gather more information
about people's Daily Success Rituals. We asked hundreds of advisors to describe
the elements that went into their Ritual, the inspiration that incited them
to begin a Daily Success Ritual practice, and benefits they enjoyed from
using a Ritual.
We polled the group—about 150 advisors from all over the country—on common
Success Ritual elements to see how that broke down. We asked advisors to
list their favorite motivational books and audio recordings—anything that
they relied upon as a resource for inspiration as part of their Ritual.
We got as specific and granular as possible, and advisors responded with
a wealth of personal detail.
The information we got back blew us away. It was personal, it was anecdotal—it
was emotional. It was a big eye opener for us.
There were a number of standout stories from individuals who seemed to
be both advanced in their Ritual practice and especially articulate in unpacking
their backgrounds and motivation. We sought out these "Success Ritual Masters"
and sat them down for even more detailed interviews. The results were fascinating,
and very instructive.
Over the course of the nine months that followed, we assembled an in-depth
study and how-to manual on Success Rituals. We bundled that with a coaching
program and resource package that pulls important tools and information
from our research.

Full Interviews with 5 Success Ritual
Start 2013 With a Renewed Focus
The cream of the Success Ritual crop, we recruited the top five responders
in our Success Ritual Survey and interviewed them in-depth on topics personal,
practical and esoteric.
Their insights proved perceptive, valuable and chock full of real life
advice for busy working parents, managers, entrepreneurs, and advisors at
every career-stage, from greenhorn to independent professional.
The Success Ritual Builder
The Success Ritual Builder is a full-blown Success Ritual generator and
workshop that lets you build your ideal Ritual from the ground up. It systematically
takes your personal profile as you describe it in the Builder's 15-worksheet
packet and generates a Ritual that is guaranteed to fine-tune your time management, banish negativity, and tap into deeply held sources of energy,
power, motivation and commitment you didn't even know you had.
Why did we create this exhaustive tool? Because based on feedback we
got from advisors, we found that taking control with an everyday Ritual
is a vital means to controlling one's motivation, seizing opportunities,
and progressing efficiently and consistently towards goals. And right
now is the best time—the only time, some might say—to start a Ritual of
7 Reasons You Need a Success Ritual
#1: Because the power of ritual is enormous—all you have to do
is find one that works best for you. Rituals exist in infinite
variety. Everyone's habits and personal values orient them towards certain
routines that have the potential to unlock huge potential.
#2: Because adopting a Success will have a positive effect on
every aspect of your life. It's not just about eating a balanced
breakfast and ticking off items on a to-do list (although those are both
great habits). Committing to a Success Ritual offers benefits that will
emerge unexpectedly at every corner of your life.
#3: Because it keeps your priorities at the front of your mind
every single day. "Big picture" goals and values can be difficult
to keep in mind, even when we think what we're doing is working toward them.
With a Daily Success Ritual to keep what's really important front and center,
you can live a more efficient, values-driven life.
#4: Because it generates powerful personal momentum that will
give you a huge advantage in your business. Harnessing momentum
and getting done what you need to get done isn't always easy. With an everyday
Ritual to guide and motivate you, you have a secret weapon for fighting
off stress and distraction that others don't.
#5: Because it strengthens you, body and mind. It's
difficult to stay fit when you're not in the habit of challenging yourself.
Integrating exercise into your routine through a Success Ritual takes away
the possibility that you won't do it. And the more you do it, the
easier it becomes.
#6: Because it will help you define your version of Success more
clearly than ever before. If you've ever lost sight of why, exactly,
you're doing what you're doing, a Success Ritual can clarify purpose like
a floodlight, showing you nuances and meaning behind your goals in sharp
relief. This kind of perspective makes everyday organization and decision
making much easier.
#7: Because it sets a positive frame of mind for every single
day. Bad days are part of life. There's no magic shield against
them, for anyone. However, with a Daily Success Ritual, you'll develop strategies
and internal resources for turning a negative situation into a positive
There's really no excuse for not adopting your personal Success Ritual
as soon as possible. Whether you use this highly structured, comprehensively
researched tool to create and customize yours is completely up to you.
What? You Don't Think a Ritual Is for You?
Just for a moment, as an experiment, let's pretend there were
some pressing reason why you were unable to integrate a Success Ritual
into your life at this time. What would that be?
"I'm too busy as it is. I just don't have the
Start 2013 With a Renewed Focus
We all have busy lives. But what can feel so much more oppressive than
simply being overscheduled is the lack of control we feel when we either
lose sight of why exactly we're so busy in the first place. A Daily Success
Ritual, even a brief one, can have a focusing effect that is guaranteed
to end up saving you valuable time and energy. It's a small time investment
with a big return.
"I feel silly doing this self help stuff. It doesn't
work for me."
A personal Success Ritual is not like most motivational strategies—its
composition is completely up to you. We just help you structure it in a
specific way that's proven effective. If you don't feel comfortable doing
a certain exercise, simply don't include it. The Success Ritual Builder
is designed to help you create a deeply personal practice that resonates
for you and you alone.
"I already have positive habits and comforting routines. I don't
need to put a fancy name on what I do."
If this sounds like you, congratulations! Go to the head of the class.
Ritual: How The Magic Of Ritual Fuels Daily Success, Shawn
Greene breaks down the vital differences between routine and conscious Ritual.
The difference in intention and how that affects change is significant.
By taking apart your existing Rituals and routines and applying them in
a purposeful, deliberate way, you can give yourself a huge boost in confidence,
efficiency and overall balance.
"I already know what I want. Reminding myself
of my goals every single day just feels like nagging. I need to concentrate
on small tasks in the moment."
Reminding yourself of long-term goals and overarching values may seem
redundant or silly, but the fact of the matter is that working purposefully
towards clearly defined achievement have been proven to yield higher quality
output and, most importantly, a really clear sense of the "why" of everyday
tasks. Without a gentle, motivational reminder of these structural elements,
your efforts can end up feeling wasted. That leads to exhaustion and stress.
A Daily Success Ritual keeps you positive and performing, even when your
inbox is full.
What Advisors Say About Success
Incredibly Important Help to Client Service
"With the plan I'm using, it helps me stay clear-minded right off the bat,
to know exactly what I have to get done. It makes me feel much more organized.
It's great for me personally. It's great for my clients. It's good for my
admin team, because everyone knows—we're all on the same page. One great
offshoot is the client service end of things is incredibly, incredibly improved."
—Jeff L., Advisor, Success Ritual Master, Toronto, CA
Changed My Life
"I'm such a firm believer in the Success Ritual. It has changed my life.
And I don't use those words flippantly, I don't say them casually. It has
made a big difference in my life."
—Pam M., Advisor, Success Ritual Master, Louisiana
Framework Helps Me Persevere
"You learn in this business that there's going to be hurdles and plenty
of challenges and it's never easy or else everybody would do it. It can
be very rewarding at the same time. Just knowing that I persevered and lived
the credit crisis, and I'm still here in business, having that pride in
not giving up and continuing push through and grind away.
"Now I'm starting to see more success than I ever have. I know it has
a lot to do with this framework, this mindset I put myself in every day
before I start out."
—Joe S., Advisor, Success Ritual Master, Washington, DC
