This is easy. You want to know what the Miracle Morning entails?
Get up early.
There. That's it. You get up early, meditate, say affirmations, journal, exercise, drink smoothies that are blended super foods. For the rest you can find a plethora of examples of how people are doing on YouTube.
One thing that irked me about Elrod was how glib he was about the concept that there is actually no such thing as sleep deprivation: As long as you go to bed with the mindset that you will wake up filled with energy and joy, you will indeed wake up refreshed and raring to go.
But here's the thing that blew me away, and I'll share it, for what it might be worth it to you. It's rather given me pause as I've lollygagged in bed:
"Would you rather stay inert and unconscious than be creative and alive?"
Now THAT has gotten me moving.
Not a miracle, exactly, but I appreciate that one line.
So, there's this marketing strategy in which you write a book as a lead-generator. Under this strategy, your goal isn't to make money from the book itself, but to get broader exposure, so you can find more potential customers for the other things you sell.
Typically, you'll invite the reader to download some bonus content at the end, in exchange for joining your mailing list. Usually, this is fine. If I got a lot of value out of a book, I'm happy to sign up. But this author missed the "get a lot of value out of the book" part. Now, I'm not knocking the program itself. I think it's very good, and people I know have gotten lot of benefit out of it.
But the *book* is a waste of time. Here's why: 1) The actual, useful content is maybe 15 pages long (and could be summarized in a few sentences). 2) There isn't much detail. I didn't learn anything from the book that my friend didn't tell me when she recommended it. The author gives an overview of what to do, but includes very few examples of how to implement that. He throws in lots of testimonials, but no actual case studies to model our own practice on. 3) There is a ton of filler. It's crammed with breathless descriptions of how "life-changing" it all is, how you'll be "blown away", and how you'll live your "best life ever", but very little detail of how that will happen or what it will look like. 4) The author intentionally leaves out detail to force you to sign up for the bonuses. Instead of sharing several examples of affirmations, he lists just one, then tells you to download the rest. (Which requires you to join his list.) The 30-day transformation chapter doesn't actually include the transformation, it just tells you to download it. (Which requires joining the list.) Then it tells you to recruit your friends to his list.
Again: if the bonuses were truly *supplemental*, that wouldn't be a problem. But they're not. That content belongs in the book itself. Essentially, the book is a quick summary of his method, and an extended sales pitch for joining his list. (And making your friends join his list. And buying the book for them. And becoming "VIP coaching client.")
In a free ebook, that would be fine. But in a book I paid for, it feels slimy and manipulative.
I love the program, but the author has completely lost my trust.
My recommendation:- Read a summary of the method. (There are YouTube videos and Amazon reviews that cover all the detail you need.)- If you must buy the book, get it in text, so you can skim past all the filler. If you must get the audio, skip the first 90 minutes.
Those who have never read any self-help books and don't know anything about self development and effective life probably will find this book interesting. For others don't even bother. Absolutely mediocre and banal recommendations, lots of water, big words, in general extremely boring...
The author started with a touching story of his life and I hoped he would give some interesting and new insights but no... nothing new or revealing. The author is actually a sales person in the past.
The whole idea of the book can be expressed in a simple rule: wake up early in a positive mood and do something important. You don't need to right a whole book about that.
The core of personal development is repetition. This concept I immediately implemented into my daily routine, and I know that future journeys through the content will better assist my mastery of the miracle morning in my life.
The author has stories I can identify with and his experiences are obviously relevant to the concept.
Rob has a soothing voice that makes the content enjoyable. Its rare to find voice work of this caliber.
I intended to listen over a few trips, but instead listened to it twice completely on a long drive.
The concept is brilliant, yet not too complicated to be consumed by novice self-developers. Rob delivers Hal's content and concept in a pleasant way, and anyone can benefit from learning what The Miracle Morning has to offer. Listen/Read this book today!
I'm excited to have this valuable, detailed information. I have been using TMM for two weeks now. Each day I feel like I'm accomplishing goals in my life I thought would never be reached. Thanks Hal for this enlightenment.
Programmer, BBQ Pitmaster, Chef, Blogger, Photographer.... all around generalist.
Hal's story is incredible. I came into this book with my own feelings of sadness and dissatisfaction with my life but hearing what he went through really puts it in perspective. I am starting this process tomorrow...
Very inspiring stories. Good explanations on how to create clarity, peace and focus for improving different aspects of my life. Looking forward to the 30 day challenge!
I haven't read the print version yet. I got it and gave it away TWICE! I have a great desire to show others the benefit of doing this on a regular basis.
The 5 min. rule! By far, it was a great way to take control of any negativity or complaining issue that might have been lingering. Most of the time now, I think, well, is it really worth going on a 5 minute rant over? Most of the time, the answer is no, and I say no more.
The other thing was the statistics of 100 people in retirement and only 5% will be in the category of independent of others help? Wow. Eye opener!
Very well read and is easy to follow. I couldn't wait to listen again each morning. In fact, I have it on my phone to stay. I listen to my bookmarks many times over.
Getting up an extra hour and a half early.... Yes, I love it so much that I have continued to make it more than an hour.
Learning the Meditation has been the most difficult thing for me. Silence is difficult for me, and I find that guided meditation or at least some music it very helpful.
"life changing book"
it's only been day 20 for me in my miracle morning and I have so many positive changes in my life. 👌
"It was ok, but in places reasonably obvious!"
This book is ok, but could easily have been half as long! So much waffle, so many repeated phrases. A bit of motivation is good, but this was to American for my liking!
Really pushes you out your comfort zone but once you get into the normal morning and you feel the benefits of this, it will change your life for the better.
"A must for those who want to reach their potential"
What a life changing book!
The audio is brilliantly well narrated & very easy to listen to. In fact I started my Miracle Mornings at the same time as I started listening to it - whilst I exercised.
I've already recommended it to 5 friends & colleagues, as I started getting immense benefit from the first day!
There aren't many things that can deliver such a quick return, and this one is definitely life changing.
A must for anyone who wants to be successful and happy, and who is determined to reach their potential.
Thanks Hal! And thanks James for introducing me to TMM. You've got my eternal gratitude.
"Brilliant framework already making changes in my life"
This book is a must read if you want a simple hack in your life to unlock your full potential. No excuses.
Would have change: repetitive over selling add-ons and related products affect very negatively the overall performance of what could have been a timeless book.
"Very little to no good information!"
I personally didn't like this book. Up to almost half way through the book, you don't get to the actual topic of the book. Many side stories through the book and not getting to the point. Even the parts of the book that is related to the topic, do not provide any new information that is not already available on the Internet.
"Way too much waffle, not much substance"
This audio book could have been 20 minutes long to convey the message. I'd advise just googling miracle morning, it's not anything new and there are way better self improvement books out there.
"Absolutely loved this book!"
This is probably the best book I've heard in a long time. If you want to learn how to start your day with a bang then this book won't disappoint! Such great content that has really helped me lead much much much more productive and fulfilling days. This book is a must read!
"Want to change your life"
The whole book.
I had started doing something similar in the mornings, but after this book I have a more structured approach. My life is already improving even more. Fantastic!!!
It's a must read for everybody. It's a really really really good book. It has the exact dose of motivation, logic behind it, proven facts, inspiration, performance, simplicity, excitement and really good teachings.
Are you procrastinating something, anything? Then this book will get you from who you are to who you want to be in so simple steps that you will loooooove it! A bit challenging at first, but that is just the old you resisting the newer, better y more amazing version of you. At least try it, what do you have to lose? And I can assure from my own experience, you have a loooooot to win! Enjoy it! :)
