I recently completed my 500th Miracle Morning so thought I would tell you about it. I haven’t done this program every day for 500 consistent days though, having started on the 11th of March 2015.
The program is from the book of the same name by Hal Elrod. It’s a very popular book so you have probably heard of it, or even tried the program.
If not I can thoroughly recommend it.
Hal developed the program after being seriously injured in a car crash, and researching the most effective ways to guide his recovery.
The program that resulted consists of 6 actions to carry out first thing each morning:
The way I use the program is different to the order in the book but it’s one that suits me and that I developed over the first few days of using it.
You are supposed to spend 10 minutes on each one. Again I have modified this – I have no limit on the Silent time (for me that’s Meditation) and exercise first thing is usually a few basic stretches. ( I do my serious exercise later in the day)
Also Visualisation and Affirmations just take as long as they take.
For me these are the real power of the program.
Developing you affirmations and visualisations is a very personal thing and changes over time.
When I look back at what has materialised from using the Visualisations I am astounded frankly.
The affirmations are a great way to work on personal development and of course doing them daily keeps things in focus.
There have been periods of time when I haven’t been able to do the Miracle Mornings – travelling, shared accommodation, etc. and it’s those times that have really emphasised for me how important they are. Losing focus is easy in those times.
The Reading is something I look forward to – it’s only 10 minutes, but it’s amazing how much you get through in 10 minutes a day – especially if your normal life doesn’t allow much reading time – as mine doesn’t.
And the Journaling is a way of talking to yourself, or to a chosen other (I have read of some people writing to their dog for instance). A way of communicating, clarifying, planning, reviewing. All very valuable.
On reviewing the book I found that there are now several books on the same theme, there are books for Writers, Artists, etc.
I have bought the Writers one and will let you know what I think about it when I finish reading.
Again, I can thoroughly recommend the Miracle Morning Program to you.
Till next time.
