Earlier this year I read a wonderful book titled “The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed To Transform Your Life (Before 8AM)” by Hal Elrod. The author was involved in a near-fatal car accident that left him with severe brain injuries and his self-mobility was greatly reduced. He underwent a lengthy and painful recovery process while not knowing what life had in store for him in the years to come.
While progressing through his recovery, Elrod learned of the power of affirmations and made a decision to use them to change his life. His first priority was to restore the belief in himself that he was in possession of a good memory. He then went on to develop a self-help model that was designed to help anyone using this model/method to allow people to achieve their goals and dreams in life. The acronym name for this model is “Savers” which stands for silence, affirmations, visualization, exercise, readings and scribing (which is intended to mean writing).
The primary concept of this model centers on devoting time to each of the areas outlined in the Savers model at the beginning of the day (an early start such as 6 a.m. is encouraged) so that your mind and body become conditioned to perform at optimum levels in each of these areas so that your personal potential along with chances for the realization of goals and dreams are increased. The author also gives added attention to the need for devoting focus on a daily basis to the areas to the point where the practice becomes habitual in nature and is no longer viewed as a task or drudgery. In addition, specific and detailed examples are provided to help solidify one’s techniques for visualization, creation of affirmations and periods of silence. This helps provide the reader with confidence in knowing that his/her personal actions are not misguided.
So how can a “Miracle Morning” help you as an aspiring entrepreneur? By showing the importance of commitment, consistency and focus; this book can show you how to hone your skills in these vital areas so that increased attention is placed on your “target goals.”
In my opinion, “Miracle Morning” definitely rates as a book that every aspiring entrepreneur needs to add to their must-read list. Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad-Poor Dad) definitely gives this book a five-star endorsement!!
Many thanks to Hal Elrod for this gem of a publication.
All the best!
