Just reread this book as I felt it helped my life back in 2013 but have been feeling a bit off track recently and life has changed a lot so it was time for bringing back some morning discipline! I find if I rush in the morning because I have gotten up too late or I am just too busy, my whole day is thrown off and even the rest of the week is out of whack. I have always found that easing into my day with relaxing routine in the morning gives me a good start. This book helped confirm that. Elrod spends an hour (approximately) each morning to give him a good start to the day - and life! The miracle morning is made up of meditation, visualization, affirmations, writing, reading and exercise. The book goes into detail and also discusses the forming of good habits (the miracle morning being one of them).

About This Item
[A message from Robert Kiyosaki, bestselling author of 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad']
"Hal Elrod is a genius and his book The Miracle Morning has been magical in my life.
"I have been in the human potential / personal development movement since 1973, when I did my first EST training and saw a whole new world of possibilities. Since then, I have studied religions, prayer, meditation, yoga, affirmation, visualization, and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). I've walked on fire, and explored other "unconventional" philosophies, some "too far out there" to mention.
"What Hal has done with his acronym SAVERS is taken the "best practices"--developed over centuries of human consciousness development--and condensed the "best of the best" into a daily morning ritual. A ritual that is now part of my day.
"Many people do one of the SAVERS daily. For example, many people do the E, the exercise every morning. Others do S for silence or meditation, or S for scribing, journaling every morning. But until Hal packaged SAVERS, no one was doing all six ancient 'best practices' every morning.
"Miracle Morning is perfect for very busy, successful people. Going through SAVERS every morning is like pumping rocket fuel into my body, mind, and spirit... before I start my day, every day.
"As my rich dad often said, "I can always make another dollar, but I cannot make another day." If you want to maximize every day of your life, read Miracle Morning."
What if you could miraculously wake up tomorrow and any--or every area of your life was transformed? What would be different? Would you be happier? Healthier? More successful? In better shape? Would you have more energy? Less Stress? More Money? Better relationships? Which of your problems would be solved?
What if I told you that there is a "not-so-obvious" secret that is guaranteed to transform any--or literally every area of your life, faster than you ever thought possible? What if I told you it would only take 6 minutes a day?
Enter The Miracle Morning. What's now being practiced by thousands of people around the world could perhaps be the simplest approach to creating the life you've always wanted. It's been right there in front of us, but this book has finally brought it to life.
Are you ready? The next chapter of your life--the most extraordinary life you've ever imagined--is about to begin.

A great motivational read. Elrod explains how waking up early, with purpose, starts you off feeling empowered for you day. I have pages of notes and can't wait to implement some of these things into my morning routine. Here are a few excerpts: "If you want your life to be different, you have to be willing to do something different first." "Like old, worn baggage we carry stress, fear and worry from yesterday with us today." "If you really think about it, hitting the snooze button in the morning doesn't even make sense. It's like saying, "I hate getting up in the morning- so I do it over and over and over again." "If you don't control your habits, your habits will control you."

OK so another self help, change your life, reach the summit book that many of us read from time to time. The one thing I learned about this one is I all ready have been doing this for about five years now all ready. Well not as outlined by Hal Elrod but getting up real early, yep am there, do that. In my case it is because of a business activity I engage in and that time is probably way before most people would attempt, 3:00am! But aside from my central reason and time commitment I have over the years woven into this daily practice some of the things Hal specifies like reading, which includes this book. Also exercise, part stretching and part yoga. A little meditation. And on one particular day each week I will hop on my bike for a 12 mile sprint. And I can tell you for me anyway this early morning time to devote to such activities is time well spent. There is a kind of zen that comes from the quiet solitude and focus or early energy that is just magical. In Hal's approach a lot of it centers around the commitment and the doing and the positive habit forming attached to it. Not all bad indeed. But like the 95% he talks about many I suspect will end in in the group of 95 in sliding back to their old ways, just like the New Year resolutions. My advice, don't.

This book opens up explaining that the life you've always wanted is within your grasp and the real secret may actually be waking up earlier. Elrod's Miracle Morning and Level 10 life approaches to goal setting and completing tasks has become widely popular and motivating for a number of people. After reading this book and applying the ideas to my own life I can certainly see why. However, when it comes to a full review of this book I think its important to break it down into two parts: the ideas and the writing style. The ideas and tips that Elrod offers are inspirational and, when you follow through with it, feels like a true transformation. They are things that seem like they should be obvious (taking time each morning for yourself) but somehow aren't (which is where the extended title comes in). Its about taking time to focus on yourself and meet some of your basic needs, telling yourself that you can do it, and visualizing what your success will look like. There were a few suggestions that Elrod made that I disagree with based on research that I've read. For example, he advises putting off eating breakfast until after the SAVERS routine (roughly 1 hour after waking up) but I've read in several studies that its the most beneficial to your health if you eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking up. Small points like that but, as with any self-help book, ones that you can shape to fit your needs and lifestyle. As for the style of writing, however, that's where the 3 instead of more stars comes in. The book isn't too terribly long but you have to wade through a lot of repeated infomercial talk to get to the point. I didn't expect to have a one page "this is how you succeed at life" but I felt like the book could've lost over half of its "just keep reading and you'll find out the secret" and it wouldn't been just as helpful of a book. If you're looking to take hold of life and willing to wake up a little earlier to do that (whether you're a morning person or a night owl, like me) then I recommend this book to you. Just be prepared to flip through a lot of pages without any real substance.
Why is it that when a...
"Why is it that when a baby is born, we often refer to them as "the miracle of life," but then go on to accept mediocrity for our own lives? Where along the way did we lose sight of the miracle that we are living?" "How you wake up each day and your morning routine (or lack thereof) dramatically affects your levels of success in every single area of your life. Focused, productive, successful mornings generate focused, productive, successful days-which inevitably create a successful life-in the same way that unfocused, unproductive, and mediocre mornings generate unfocused, unproductive, and mediocre days, and ultimately a mediocre quality of life. By simply changing the way you wake up in the morning, you can transform any area of your life, faster than you ever thought possible." In "The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life: Before 8AM" by Hal Elrod Why do these books give out only common sense utterances? If there is a determinable set of factors that lead to particular creative success (not only related to what we do in the morning)...but actually these are fairly acceptable, and if simplified: 1) make the most of productivity 2) maintain self-sufficiency 3) don't over-saturate yourself (*) 4) keep a disciplined work ethic 5) expand your cognitive horizons 6) be flexible All very practical, and you could easily apply these to generally living a decent life, not just to pursuing creative heights. (*) A sense of proportion, even of humour, could usefully be added to this rather technical list (and I do hope item 3 is not referring to the activity which Baden-Powell warned could lead to blindness) Ah, Baden-Powell. Apparently used to sleep on the veranda on a bunk bed, to avoid 'marital beastliness'. Funny chap.....It might have meant to stop himself being beastly to his wife instead of to stop beastliness from her. Abstracting yourself to stop yourself hurting others is admirable. I don't know which was operative and hold no candle for Baden-Powell but the possibility needs to be addressed. Though the spartan cold might have had other sought effects and it may be he found sex to be unpleasant.
