I’m reading this book called “The Miracle Morning” and it’s stirring up some serious resistance. I’m not even into the meat of it yet and already I’m all ‘oh, hell no!’ which often (but not always) means it’s the next step on my path. Dammit.
In the book, Hal Elrod talks about getting up one hour earlier and spending 10 minutes each on six things: meditation, affirmation, visualization, scribing, reading and exercise.
Not all that taxing, even for an avowed lazy-ass like yours truly.
And yet, the hyperbole around it all smacks me upside my head.
I. just. cannot. with. the. hyperbole.
This is THE thing that will turn your life around! Do this and EVERYTHING will change!
Feh to that, say I!
But this is how advertising works, amirite?
Anyway, back to miracles.
I keep hearing this small voice (possibly the mouse who lives in my house) saying “What if? What if you tried it even for one day or one week? How could things change?”
My Lisa-self wants to smack that mouse-voice and say SHUT UP! It won’t work and it’s all bullshit hype.
And still that voice persists.
As well documented on these here pages, inner discipline comes and goes (mostly the latter) and if I don’t love the process, the goal won’t matter.
(Except when I stood online for six hours in the hot August sun to meet sekrit boyfriend in 2008. The goal, she mattered hella big then!)
The blog post linked above breaks it down to 6 minutes instead of 60. Could I start there? What can’t I do for a minute at a time?
Stay tuned to find out! (ha! keeping you on the edge of yo’ seat!)
