Chances are if you're following me on Social Media then you will know I just started reading the book Miracle Morning. I've only discovered the book a week ago so you aren't late with what's going on. I recently had to do some spreads for a guest post on another blog that I write for. I was asked could I do some "Miracle Morning" layouts for Bullet Journaling and of course I agreed! But I had no clue what MM was and what the book was about. I did some research and found myself really enjoying the book.
Next thing you know I was listening to the audio book online and reading it on Kindle. I really liked what I was reading and hearing. So I made my spreads and continued reading and listening. Then I thought to give it a try. I mean I've been known to do the Fajr Challenge and I needed to get back into getting up and staying up.
What is Miracle Morning?
There are so many articles about it that I'll give you guys a short version but to get the benefit from it all then should get the book. The books is about:
The Miracle Morning makes it clear that in order to become successful, you have to dedicate time to personal development each day, and then gives you a 6-step morning routine to create and shape that time."--
You can read the book on Kindle or listen to it on Audible. Right now I'm reading it on Kindle but I hope to own it in my hand soon because I like to highlight and have it in my head. Mr. Elrod talks about developing certain habits that he's read and heard help successful people. Which is pretty awesome to combine all the things that successful people have made me mention that makes them well...successful and put it into one routine. It's like maximizing the possibility for success by creating a routine on steroids hehe. If over 10 successful folks say they have different keys they used to get successful and you see a common pattern among them then you want to do what they do. So Mr. Elrod did just that, he combined all the things he heard and read from those in a lofty position and set up a routine.
This page is my reference page and it goes over the SAVERS. SAVERS mean:
S- Silence 5 mins
A- Affirmations 5 mins
V- Visualizations 5 mins
E- Exercise 20 mins
R- Read 20 mins
S- Scribe 5 mins
You can choose how you want to carry out these SAVERS.
So far I've been getting up at 5 a.m.
My goal is to get up at 5 a.m. and for my SAVERS this is what I've been doing so far.
Silence - I sit quietly and try to clear my mind and not think and listen to my breathing.
Affirmations - I say them to myself things that are realistic that I want to let go. For example: I would say "I free myself from the limiting belief that I am not not good enough and I am good enough and capable enough."
Visualizations- I took some time to put some of the things I want to happen to me in my life in my planner and made a vision board.
Exercise for me was starting with Pilates and then I picked up beginners dance (no music)
Reading - I listen to audio books at the moment and try to learn about things that is going to help me reach my goals.
Scribing- This is a fancy way to say journaling. I like to journal first thing in the morning some of the thoughts that I have. I often have a lot on my mind and I want to focus on those things and get them out and then go into gratitude.
For everyday that I do a SAVERS then I mark it off in my tracker. This tracker was inspired by Kara from Boho Berry! It's super simple and then I added some affirmations on the side so I can remember to do my affirmations.
I have not finished the book yet but I'm slowly making my way though it and it's been a joy. I've combined this with my old school challenge of staying up for Fajr and doing something productive before the sunrise and doing MM has been a nice fit so far.
" think it’s safe to say that if we’re measuring success on a scale of 1-10, we all want “Level 10” success, right? This is truly for every area of our life—health, finances, relationships, happiness, career, etc. What most people don’t realize though, is that in order to achieve Level 10 success in our lives, we must first develop ourselves to be a Level 10 person who is capable of attracting, creating, and sustaining the levels of success that we want, in every area of our life." - Hal Elrod
Another spread that I have is my Level 10 life assessment. Author Hal Elrod talks about in certain areas of your life you should be striving towards a level 10 life. Most of us are stuck on level 1. Last night I took a serious look at my life and this is what I came up with. My hubs said I'm too hard on myself and some of my bars need to go up a notch. He may be right but I really thought this was an honest look at my life.
The areas of focus are:
I plan on using the other side of the page to write my goals for the month in those areas and see if I can do better.
I don't believe anyone can get to a level 10 life - that would be perfect. I know nothing is perfect but I really see level 10 as giving 110% in every area of your life so that you can feel as though you are on level 10 because you're giving it all you got and you are truly living your life and being in the moment.
I started a Facebook for us ladies to connect for doing the Fajr challenge and adding MM to our routine. If you want to connect and meet other folks on the similar path then swing on by our Facebook group. It's called MP Lifestyle.
