“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man HEALTHY, WEALTHY, & WISE” -Benjamin Franklin DJ’s morning ritual is what sets him up for SUCCESS! He knows that if he has enough willpower to beat the Sun in the morning… he can accomplish whatever he sets his mind to, throughout the rest of his day!
We’re at the gym, to start the day. A big thing to me is that we all have the same 24 hours in a day, so how are you gonna maximize yours? And for me I was used to waking up to go to the gym early in the morning, because I played college football. Then when I stopped playing football I started enjoying the luxury of sleeping in more, then I started my family, and I realized it was way more important for me to spend time with them every single day. So I started waking up early again to get my workout in before the day so after I’m done working I can go home and spend the rest of my time with them. Let’s go inside. Alright so today we got a light lift, abs and cardio. You know we got to make cardio fun. So I’m gonna play a little basketball. This to my left, my beautiful beautiful wife, Miranda, who took my head phones and gave me the string one’s because she forgot hers at home. This takes more willpower than anything that I do the rest of my day, although it is the most important part of my day. My morning routine sets everything else up for success now it’s just time to do what I do. Walking up to the office, making sure I have a plan for the day, execute. Most importantly this is my time to get my mind right. To me the biggest thing about being the first one here in the morning is this really is the only time during the day that I get to myself. I get home, I have time with my family, during the day I’m working with the clients, so I use this time to go into my meditation room, spend about 10 minutes there, then I spend about 15 to 20 minutes going over my goals and speaking all that into existence. Then it’s just about executing the plan. Once I finally get on the computer, I just like to know what’s going on in the market. I’ll review everything that just hit the market, everything that came off the market. In my opinion, people come to me to be their expert. So in order to be their expert I have to know what’s going on myself. They say I look like John Legend. Rel: Who’s that? Your wife? DJ: No, she’s the one person who’s actually said that I don’t look anything like John Legend, but if you catch that side profile. There was one picture he posted with his wife Chrissy Teigen, and I looked at it, I double looked the the picture like when did I take that? If only I can sing like him. Actually the other day, I was walking in I wasn’t the feeling the best and then as I walked in this exact picture popped up, and it’s like he was looking at me like “daddy, you really not gonna work today, you really not going to go all in today?” That was good. That was good.
