Your Platinum 30

Updated on October 2, 2013


The way you start your day will have an effect on the rest of your day and also the quality of your life. Your Platinum 30 would be the first 30 minutes of your day, after you have woken up.

Sometimes, I read about backgrounds of inspiring and powerful people or listen to them online and I have noticed they all have different ways of starting their day, which makes life easier for them and has also shaped them into what they are.

  • Some practice meditation.
  • Some will listen to a motivational CD or slot it in while driving off.
  • Some start with deep gratitude and give thanks for what has happened to them during the week. This is very positive and only attracts more good.
  • Some will read – maybe very inspiring books or a holy book.
  • For some it’s fitness. I notice President Obama has a fitness regime in the morning, which he does with his Personal Instructor.



Looking at it Practically

If Jo Bloggs wakes up in the morning, has a coffee, goes straight to the news and digests all the horrible things happening around the world. When Jo Bloggs gets stuck in traffic that morning or the train is running late. It’s extremely likely, he will be angry and upset and those negative vibes will stick to him and reflect from him to others, for most of the day.

However, if you start the day well, on a positive and you are stuck in traffic, missed the train, or something else happened – the inner you is equipped to deal with it calmly. The mindset is tuned positively and nothing ruffles you. Ofcourse, you will go about the rest of the day cool, calm and collected.

Start your day well. (◕‿◕)

      Lady E, Lovely insighftul hub! Marvelous advice! I start my "Platinum 30" day with; "This is the Day that the LORD has MADE! I will REJOICE & be GLAD in it!" It reminds me that each day is a precious "GIFT!" from the LORD!

      Thank you for sharing, In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

      I think this is the best advice. I know it works for me. My best days happen when I start with a good time of devotion toward my spiritual beliefs.

      Very good advice for the start of the day. The proverb says "A good beginning makes a good ending." Thank you.

      Excellent advice! I start by reading my daily

      Bible verse, stretch, coffee, vitamins and then off for the day. Meditation is so very eye-awakening for the soul. I would like one of the smoothies.
