I read and listen to a lot of motivational content from successful people every week. So much so, that I sometimes forget where I learn certain things. However, one thing has remained pretty consistent among successful people – they all have a morning practice.
When I first heard the term “morning practice” my first thought was – “there is no way that I will get up early to do more stuff, I need my sleep”. But honestly – this book by Hal Elrod changed my mind.
I will be the first one to admit that while I read a whole bunch of inspirational stuff – generally I don’t apply it directly to my life. And if I do apply it, I may augment it because I don’t agree with one area.
But it’s like a workout plan, they allllllll work, if you follow the directions. The second you augment a plan, it is no longer the original that has been tested and proved to work. You made something new that has not been tested and may not work in the same way the original does. And then you have the nerve to wonder why you aren’t getting the same exact results, right?
I say all of this to say that I am committing to The Miracle Morning Practice – in it’s entirety. In the best selling book, The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM), there is a specific and actionable plan to create a morning routine that will change your life.
Also, in the 20 week personal development group that I am currently in, She Creates Change, we have also been working on developing a morning practice, but for some reason it just didn’t stick. Reading this book made it stick for me. All of the concepts are the same, but I think the testimonials from influencers that I am familiar with made it stick for me.
The elements of a morning practice or Miracle Morning are all the same. They always consist of the following:
But Hal talked about breaking the different areas of your life down in an actionable way to create more focus, and that got me excited. Physically, Emotionally, Relationally, and Financially are the big areas that are covered – but some people prefer to even break them down even more than that.
In the next few weeks, I plan on writing down the exact areas of my life that I am looking to manifest more change – similar to how I want to get my life on fleek, but this time, with more actionable steps.
I’m excited – and it wasn’t even that hard to wake up this morning because I was excited to work on myself. Excited to commit to working on something that just may change my life in more ways than I could even imagine on my own.
I really want to spill all of the beans in this post – but honestly, that wouldn’t be fair to Hal – so please – if this at all interests you – go buy the book. Yes, there are affiliate Amazon links in this post – but honestly, I don’t even care if you don’t want to put a few pennies in my pocket – head to Google/Amazon, or where ever you purchase books and type in “The Miracle Morning” – and buy the book that way too.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be writing in more detail about how my practice develops and what I actually do each morning (specifically). If you join in, please give me a shout on social media. Maybe we can motivate each other to stay accountable. 🙂
