The Miracle Morning Challenge | Day 2

Full Disclosure. Day 2 of The Miracle Morning was a bit more of a Messy Morning. Essentially, I completely failed at getting up on time and getting it done. I still did it, but I can feel the effects of not getting up and getting focused. If I can tell the difference between doing it and not doing it after just ONE day, I can only imagine what it will be like after sticking with this for the 30 day challenge.

Silence: Today I simply focused on trying to quiet my mind for 4 min. This is admittedly much easier to do when trying to do quiet time BEFORE the kids wake up.

Affirmations: Read my affirmations. Really focusing on Purpose and Career.

Visualization: This is the part I find the hardest. I can’t decide if I want to visualize my daily activities or visualize how it will feel to reach my goals…. Based on my failure to get up and get going this morning, I’m thinking I need to start with the daily activities.

Exercise: Again, because I got a late start today, I really just didn’t feel like working out. I started 21 Day Fix Extreme Cardio and just couldn’t get into it. So, I switched to Turbo Fire and quit that after about 9 minutes. From there, I finished up with a 7 minute exercise App I have on my phone. All in all, I got in 30 min total.

R: Reading The Miracle Morning for Salespeople. Today’s take aways:

“I am just as worthy, deserving, and capable of achieving extraordinary success as any other person, and I will prove it today with my actions. I am destined for greatness, and today I will I’ve in alignment with my destiny.”

“It’s impossible to lead others if you don’t know how to effectively lead yourself.” (OUCH. This on really hits home today).

“Here’s the hard truth: if you’re not achieving the life you want right now, it’s all on you.” Click To Tweet

Tonight, I will get all of my things ready for tomorrow. I will lay out my book, my workout clothes, and my daily checklist. I do NOT want another day like today, and clearly based on the lessons from today’s reading, the key is to take responsibility for today and change it.
