The Miracle Morning Ritual (Hal Elrod)
Start your morning by getting up 30-60 minutes earlier as you normally would get up. Start the day with a positive outlook on what you want to be and become. Be present.
You can adjust the timing (10 minutes each, or 20/5/5/10/10/5, even 1 min. each works) and you can skip a few practises – but start to work with yourself on a positive focus as the first thing in the morning before doing anything else.
See it as an experiment and stick with it for one week to see the outcome!
Background & Effect:
Our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. To change the circumstances that we don’t like we need to change our internal focus and beliefs first. The morning exercise gives you an excellent turnaround opportunity – because changing the outer world takes time, but changing the inner world just a minute!
If you hit the snooze button on your clock every morning because you don’t want to get up – how do you think you will get the energy to do all the things you really want?
Taking time for the miracle morning is like going consciously in the captain’s position of our lifeship and taking the steering wheel, instead of stumbling on deck and loosing ourselves in the things that come towards us. It is moving back into deciding who we really really want to be: physically, financially, mentally, emotionally. If we can start the day in a positive, energetic and clear way, the message we’re sending to the universe is: Yes, I want an extraordinary life.
Hal Elrod developed this exercise when he was broke literally at all levels of his life, after having an insight on the quote of Jim Rohn, “Success is something you attract by the person you become”. He started to inquire on the behavior of successful people and experimented in combining them into one morning exercise. Today, he is one of the shooting stars of the motivational scene, teaching this method to thousands of people.
