There's been a lot of talk about the "Millionaire Morning Routine." You know, the routines that all the millionaires do to achieve great success. You may have read things like affirmations, meditations, exercise, journaling, and much more.

Sometimes the list is so long by the time you start your "real work" it's not morning anymore. You've just wasted an hour or more on things that are, important sure, but more beneficial to do once your "actual work", the work that's going to get you paid, is completed.

I am sure many billionaires and millionaires do them. But that's because they are millionaires and billionaires, they now have the time to meditate for an hour. I am pretty sure, in the beginning, when they were first establishing their company, they did not spend the first two hours of their morning chanting away at some vision board.

No, they got to work first thing in the morning. And that is what you need to do if you truly want success. If you really want to become a millionaire, meaning you aren't one yet, here is what you need to do. 

Here is the "REAL" millionaire morning routine, for people who want to "BECOME" millionaires:

1. Rise Early

This part is true, you most certainly want to wake up early if you want to be successful. Not only does it give you more time throughout your day to get work completed but you get to wake up when most of the world is asleep. Most importantly, the people in your household. If you are a family person, with pets, children, or a spouse, it can benefit you greatly to get up early enough to beat the crowd. 

2. Plan The Night Before

It is best to create your to-do list the night before that way you are able to get straight to work as soon as possible. List what needs to be done the following morning, and list the times at which you will complete these tasks. This allows you to stay on schedule and be extra productive.

3. The 10 Minute Rule

It should take you no more than 10 minutes from the moment you leave the bed to get to work on the thing that will make you rich. For example, wake up, make your bed, brush your teeth, wash your face, hydrate, then get to work. This is when your power hour begins. You work on what will make you successful for an hour or longer if you can. This is the true meaning of a power hour.

4. Rejuvenate 

Once you have dedicated yourself an hour or more to your "real work" take a break. This is when you implement one of the following mentioned above, exercise, affirmations, journaling, or meditating. These can be used to boost your energy to either continue your work if you have the time or rejuvenate yourself for your family and loved ones. 

Here's why it's important to reverse your millionaire morning routine:

1. You're Not A Millionaire Yet! 

If you want to become one, bite that frog first thing in the morning. Get the most important and difficult task done first. If you do, the rest of the day will be a breeze.

2. We Have A Limited Amount of Energy

We have a limited energy supply to carry us through the day. Put your most active moments into the work that is going to make you successful first. It will pay off in the end.

3. The Mind Works Best In The Morning

Our minds are at their most alert first thing in the morning. With that said, shouldn't we put our most alert moments and match them up against our most difficult task? 

4. The Day Moves Fast

By the time you are done singing kumbaya and all the other things, we are told to do before we start our day, the morning is darn near over. Pets, kids, and spouses are probably up by now. How much did you actually get done? 

5. Reward Yourself

When you get straight to the hard stuff for an hour or longer first thing in the morning, the affirmations, visualization, meditations, and journaling act as an award for a morning well done. 

I am not saying that the millionaire morning routine ideas that are out there today are not good. They most certainly are. And they are very important in rejuvenating your mind and body. But realistically, if you want to become a millionaire or just a successful person, it takes upfront hard work. Not relaxation and luxuries. Allow those to be your rewards.
