The Dalai Lama gets up in the very early morning hours, meditates, chants, does 100 prostrations (which are squat down, move forward and lay flat and the back to squatting position and then stand up again) and then he runs 5 to 10 miles barefoot on his treadmill. 

Then he has all the rest of his duties that he needs to do everyday. - and he's in his 80's.

Rituals and willpower are important.

I get up at 5AM and go to the gym for an hour, do my yoga, Qigong, and then my prayers, meditate for an hour, then do my writing, and everything else that needs to get done for the day. 

Rituals and willpower are important because they give us framework for life... and create a foundation from which we can grow and thrive.

Rituals and willpower are like the foundation of a large house... for a strong house a strong foundation is required.
