The Miracle Morning Hardcover Book
The Miracle Morning
By Hal Elrod
I am going through a career transition and this book is helping me be more accountable for taking control of my mornings. Sometimes I feel I am in the movie “Groundhog Day” with each day producing the same result. This book is a great motivator to move your days (and life) in a productive direction so you feel your best, produce your best and give your best! What am I learning? Here are three key takeaways from this book:
  • Find the time to focus on your personal development. Leverage the morning to create habits for fulfillment by taking dedicated time prior to each day.
  • Have an impactful circle of influence. Seek out people who provide positivity to your life and support you in your journey. Then, support them in the same way.
  • Be clear on your deepest “whys” to move toward the life you want. To help with moving toward your whys, create affirmations and read them daily.

This book continues to offer such insight since I am a full-time working mom. I am slowly integrating concepts from the book to make the most of my day. I am a work in progress.
