Ritual: How the Magic of Habit Fuels Daily Success
I want to tell you about a simple success strategy that's been known for years but only used by a committed few. 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, but a great day? What if you could tap into a deep reservoir of confidence whenever you needed a boost. Approach every challenge as the absolute best version of yourself: clearheaded, strong, and positive?
What if you had a bulletproof technique to help you stay focused and calm? What if you possessed a positive outlook on life, every single day, no exceptions?
That kind of balance is achievable. We've seen evidence of it in Advisors from all over the country.
A big eye-opener
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 on adding 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, and communicate on an in-depth, personal level about why their Success Ritual was so effective. 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 conduct a survey of 150 Advisors from all over the country to gather more information about people's Daily Success Rituals. We asked them to describe the elements that went into their Ritual, favorite motivational books and audio recordings, the inspiration that incited them to begin a Daily Success Ritual practice, and benefits they enjoyed from using a 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.
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 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 resource disk that includes key tools derived from our research.

7 Reasons You Need a Success Ritual
#1: Because a Success Ritual ignites your achievement potential. Rituals exist in infinite variety. Everyone's habits and personal values orient them towards certain routines that unlock their individual potential.
#2: Because adopting a Success Ritual will have an impact on your whole 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 in all aspects of your life.
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 through the credit crisis and I'm still here in business, having that pride in not giving up and continuing to 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
#3: Because a Success Ritual keeps your priorities at the front of your mind every day. “Big picture” goals and values can be difficult to keep in mind, even if we think we're working toward them. With a Daily Success Ritual, you reinforce your commitment to the “big picture” goals every day.
#4: Because it generates powerful personal momentum that will give you a huge advantage in your business. Harnessing momentum and getting things done isn't always easy. With a Daily Ritual to guide and motivate you, you have a weapon for fighting off stress and distraction that others are lacking.
#5: Because it will help you define your version of success more clearly than ever before. If you've lost sight of why you're doing what you're doing, a Success Ritual can clarify purpose like a floodlight, putting meaning behind your goals in sharp relief. This kind of perspective makes everyday organization and decision-making much easier.
#6: Because a Success Ritual resets a positive frame of mind for you. Bad days are part of life. There's no magic shield against them. However, with a Daily Success Ritual, you'll develop strategies and internal resources for turning a negative situation into a positive one.
#7: Because no matter how hectic your daily schedule, a customized Success Ritual will ground you. Routine is reassuring, but Ritual is much more than that. It's a positive, controlled form of routine that works to reduce stress, generate fresh confidence and keep things in perspective.
Why operate at less than full engagement?
Whether you use this highly structured, comprehensive program to create and customize your own Success Ritual is completely up to you. But why not give it a try?
Oh? You Don't Think a Ritual Is for You?
Just for a moment, as an experiment, let's pretend there was 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 time.”
We all have busy lives. But what can feel even more oppressive than simply being overscheduled is the lack of control we feel when we lose sight of why we're so busy in the first place. A Success Ritual, even a brief one, can have a meaningful effect that is guaranteed to focus and reenergize you. 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 a canned strategy—its composition is completely up to you. We just help you structure it in a specific, proven way.
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 only.
“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. In 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 personal behavior 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, but working purposefully toward clearly defined goals yields higher quality results. Without a gentle, motivational reminder of your goals, you can end up detached from the all-important “why” of your daily actions. That leads to exhaustion and stress. A Daily Success Ritual keeps you positive and performing, even when your inbox is full and your to-do list is packed.
