The Miracle Morning – a must read!!!

book

How do you spend the first hour of your day?  How you wake up each day and your morning routine (or lack there-of) dramatically effects the level of success in every area of your life.  Focused, successful, productive mornings crate focused, successful,  productive days – which inevitably creates a successful life.  By simply changing how and when you wake up in the morning can transform any area of your life.  I always wake  before the sun, drink lemon water, 1/2 banana, coffee, lace up my running shoes and hit the pavement.  My to-do list is crated, my dreams planned out, my day structured before 6am.  How do YOU start your day??!!

In this book Hal also quoted Jim Rohn (an IDOL of mine!!):
Your level of success, will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become

How does all of this relate to health and fitness??!!  In SO many ways.  In this book he wasn’t exercising so the day he decided to create his “miracle morning” a key portion of that was exercise.  He fit in a run and yoga and all areas of his life began to change.  Waking up early is all about self discipline.  Some say they need motivation but motivation is going to come and go.  When you are not “motivated” your self discipline must step in.

I highly recommend reading this book.  It will inspire you to a new level!!!
