At last, I finished something that I started. This week, I finished The Miracle Morning (TMM) 30-day challenge. As part of the 30-day challenge, I woke up at 4:15 AM and completed the SAVERS activities as mentioned in the book, “The Miracle Morning”, by Hal Elrod.
Hal Elrod’s story and his success is very inspiring. You can check out his videos and books at his website. To me, the following quote was very inspiring. This is a quote from Jim Rohn that the author, Hal also liked and kinda started him off on his personal development journey.
“Your level of success, will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.” – Jim Rohn
Even though I read this book last year, I did not take up the 30-day challenge until I re-read it this year. After re-reading TMM book, I downloaded the PDFs from the website, printed them out and took up the 30-day challenge. I am so glad that I followed up on this challenge as it has given me a new found belief that these 30-day challenges are potential game-changers in my personal development.
I took 90 minutes to complete the “SAVERS” activities, every morning, from 4:30 to 6 AM. On weekdays, I started working from 6 AM, checking my email and then get onto conference calls by 6:30 AM. On weekends, the routine was different. On Saturday, I would write for this blog and on Sundays, would go to a Yoga class. (More on Yoga in a later post)
In other words, there were enough activities to fill the time productively and completely, otherwise there was a good chance that this would fail like my other experiments with waking up early. The first two weeks were not so easy and I had to drink two to three cups of coffee to stay functional during the day but the last two weeks were amazing. I had good energy and did not have to drink any coffee. Looks like, my body adjusted.
My plan is to stick to this habit and reap the benefits of waking up early. With spring in the air and summer approaching, I am hoping that I will continue with this habit that was formed over a period of 30 days.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
