Have you ever been excited for a while, but when the initial excitement wore off, so did your motivation? Followed by your level of commitment…? Well, I was recently reviewing my 2009 Winner’s Journal, and I came across a few *REVEALING* journal entries that I’d like to share with you, followed by a powerful Personal Growth Lesson…
Here are four of my (UNEDITED) journal entries from last year…
*May 4th, 2009*
My Miracle Morning has been inconsistent for the past week. I either can’t seem to get myself out of bed in the morning, or when I do, I get distracted and don’t stick to my schedule. I don’t know what my problem is. I’ve got to figure out what happened to the motivation that I had for TMM before, and more importantly… how do I get it back???
*May 5th, 2009*
My Miracle Morning was mediocre again today. I felt tired & didn’t stick to my schedule. This is so frustrating! I don’t even want to write in this journal.
*May 6th, 2009*
My Miracle Morning was LESS than mediocre today. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I hit the snooze button 3x and when I did finally get up, I was exhausted & unmotivated, so I fell back asleep on the couch for a couple of hours. No more! I will recommit to TMM tonight before I go to bed.
*May 7th, 2009*
Today I followed through with my commitment and woke up at 4AM w/out hitting the snooze button, and I feel great! So, what’s the difference? I went to bed earlier and got 7 hours of sleep (rather than the 5 1/2 hours that I’ve been getting).
***Powerful Personal Growth Lesson***
Personal growth is about progress, not perfection. There is no such thing as failure as long as you learn from your mistakes and keep moving FORWARD. It’s about getting back on the horse (TMM) when you fall off, and it’s never too late to make a fresh start!
Don’t give up… RECOMMIT to YOUR Miracle Morning so that YOU can become the person you need to be to create the life you really want (& deserve!!)
And please leave a comment to let me know how I can be of support to you.
In fact, feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions, suggestions, or WINS to share about YOUR Miracle Morning! =)
