What is a”miracle morning” and how does someone have one? To inspirational speaker Hal Elrod, getting up an hour earlier than you normally would to do the 6 steps in the S.A.V.E.R.S. acronym is necessary to kickstart your day off on the right path. The 6 steps are: Silence, Affirmation, Visualization, Exercise, Read, Scribe. Throughout the book Hal Elrod writes out numerous success stories of people who have seen transformations in their lives by implementing the S.A.V.E.R.S. in their lives. Points taken away are:
1. You are in control of your own success and destiny. YOU have to put in the work to get anywhere you want to get to. “In order for you to stop settling for less than you deserve – in any area of your life – and to create the levels of personal, professional, and financial success you desire, you must first dedicate time each day to becoming the person you need to be, one who is qualified and capable of consistently attracting, creating, and sustaining the levels of success you want.“
2. Your current environment is a reflection of your your past actions. If you don’t like your situation today, it’s because of all your past actions that lead up to it. “Our outer world will always be a reflection of our inner world. Our level of success is always going to parallel our level of personal development. Until we dedicate time each day to developing ourselves into the person we need to be to create the life we want, success is always going to be a struggle to attain.
3. Have a purpose/motivation in your life. Knowing this/these will help you achieve what you want to achieve; it is the fuel to your drive. “To defeat this cause of mediocrity, you need a life of purpose, which can be any purpose you want. It can be anything that resonates with and inspires you to wake up every day and live in alignment with your purpose. Now, I totally understand that asking you to come up with your life’s purpose right now may sound a bit overwhelming. Just remember that you get to make it up, and this first one can be something simple, even small. (e.g. “I’m going to smile more so that I can bring a little more happiness to my life and to those around me.“
4. The way you perceive something is how you’ll act towards it. Your mindset is everything when it comes to success. “Your self-talk has dramatic influence on your level of success in every aspect of your life-confidence, health, happiness, wealth, relationships, etc. Your affirmations are either working for or against you, depending on how you are using them. If you don’t consciously design and choose your affirmations you are susceptible to repeating and reliving the fears, insecurities, and limitations of your past. However, when you actively design and write out your affirmations to be in alignment with what you want to accomplish and who you need to be to accomplish it – and commit to repeating them daily (ideally out loud) – they immediately make an impression on your subconscious mind. Your affirmations go to work to transform the way you think and feel so you can overcome your limiting beliefs and behaviors and replace them with those you need to succeed.“
