In 2020 some Coach4aday posts will feature lessons learned by completing, planning, and experiencing 30 day challenges. The challenges include physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional.
Today’s post is a recap of September 30 Day Challenge I called the MIRACLE because it is based on a book by Hal Elrod called The Morning Miracle. The techniques the authored outlined in the book become the challenge for September.
The goal this past month was to create a personal morning routine using the SAVERS acronym. I had several other people take on this challenge.
This 30 Day Miracle Challenge did not require me to add every habit or component of the SAVERS technique. I already was practicing silence, exercise, reading, and scribing. My two new habits were actualization and visualization.
I can say I did an excellent job on the actualization but the visualization presented a far greater challenge. I took some time at the end of August and created four actualization statements. I was religious in reading these out load (quietly) each morning. One of my four statements was:
“My life is full of magic and serendipity”.
I was surprised as I reflected each evening before dosing off to bed how those magically moments materialized each and every day. I had my health insurance carrier waive all my co-pays at multiple doctor appointments in September, I witnessed some pretty cool things in nature, I had friends do small acts for me, I received lots of good news from family members, I received WOW customer service with a technology issue, my fantasy football team came from behind two weeks in a row to score me a win, my granddaughter gave me multiple moments of pride and laughter, and I had wonderful nights of sleep.
The visualization challenge was more of focused concentration. I had some mornings where visualizing my goals was effortless but most mornings it was difficult to stay focused. I am not there yet with visualization but will continue to practice it.
Tomorrow it is on to my tenth 30 Day Challenge of 2020. Hope you will give it a read and decide to join in.
