Anybody else feeling they don't have sufficient time in a day to complete their entire to-do list ? Let alone having some time left for workout, reflection or reading? I've joined the Miracle Morning club 4 months ago after reading the book of Hal Elrod - The Miracle Morning and it literally changed my life.
If you are wasting your time, you won’t get success in life. Every famous and successful person wakes up early in the morning and does something at that time that sets him or her apart from the unsuccessful persons.
But what miracle they do in the morning that creates such a profound difference between you and them?
It’s called SAVERS. It’s an acronym, whose full form is:
S — — Silence
A — — Affirmations
V — — Visualisation
E — — Exercise
R — — Reading
S — — Scribing
Let’s go over them one by one.
S for SILENCE:
Do meditation, start with not more than 5 minutes in the morning. By doing meditation, you can control your thoughts and feelings greatly. If you can control your mind, no one can stop you from being successful.
Don’t worry, as meditation is very easy to learn. Sit in a quiet place and set a timer for 5 minutes. And then just focus on your breathing, and stop thinking to hard for a moment. You will get a lot of thoughts, and you will notice that you may start to feel some anxiety, let it go. Continue to focus on as you breathe in and out. You will slowly learn how to meditate easily.
A for AFFIRMATIONS:
Write your ideal life on a paper or in a notebook, in the present tense. And then read with meaning, emotions, and intent. Let’s say you want to become healthy by doing exercise daily. Then write — “I take care of my health and exercise daily”. Read all your affirmations out loud in the morning. You can do this habit after doing meditation.
V for VISUALIZATION:
Close your eyes and think about your perfect life for 5 minutes. Take a deep breath and visualize as if you are already living that amazing life. You will get a ton of motivation and inspiration for the whole day, that will, in turn, give you the energy to face the difficulties in the day.
E for EXERCISE:
When you increase the blood flow in the body, your concentration level, and your health, both improve. Exercising in the morning will make your eyes open and you will become alert. Even if you don’t have much time, you can still do some stretching exercises for 4–5 minutes.
R for READING:
Just like you shower every day to clean your body, you must also read good books to clear your thoughts. When you read a good book in the morning, your mind is cleared of the negative thoughts and for the rest of the day, you have a bunch of good thoughts to think of.
I recommend not to read newspapers or other stressful things. Read good books like classics or motivational or biographies of successful persons. Even 5 minutes of reading is enough. You just have to make this a habit, like brushing your teeth.
S for SCRIBING:
Keep a journal with you and write your feelings in it. Analyse yourself and focus on your strengths and weaknesses. You can start by writing a to-do list. It gives you a road-map for the whole day and sets your priorities. This habit is a big part of the famous book — The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People.
Even though it seems like these Miracle Morning habits will only take-up more time in your already so busy schedule. They will allow you to be proactive, start te day of way sharper and more aware on what needs to be done in order to achieve your goals. Whoever has practiced these habits have achieved happiness, became healthy, increased their income and got success in various areas of their lives.
Remember, successful people, do more before 8 AM than most people do throughout the day. So rise and shine honeys!
