Chapters 6: The Life S.A.V.E.R.S.
The very American/Tony Robbins'ish language..
Everyone.. even those who believe their not a "morning person"
The title almost put me off. Then the very American/Tony Robbins'ish language gave me a hard time.
But enabling the right "language filter" when reading, the book is really great.
I've been an early riser for about six years, 2 hours alone before the rest of my family starts moving is priceless. Nice to find that of Elrod's 6 "Life S.A.V.E.R.S." (6 habits to apply each "Miracle morning"), I've been practicing 4 of them for many years; Silence (for me meditation), Exercise, Reading & Scribe (Journaling). The other two - Affirmations & Visualization - have been on my mind for some time, he might just have pushed me to test them out.
The book contains many great quotes (I love great quotes), lots of inspiration and a nice personal touch (here's my story...).
I highly recommend joining "The 5am club", and this book will guide you in the right direction. And remember with the right motivation (this book will motivate you) everyone can rise earlier and have a wonderful start to each day. Good luck.
“Every once in a while, you read a book that changes the way you look at life. But it is so rare to find a book that changes the way you live your life. The Miracle Morning does both, and faster than you ever thought possible. I highly recommend Hal Elrod’s latest book.”
-TIM SANDERS, NY Times bestselling author of The Likability Factor
“The Miracle Morning(tm) is literally the ONE thing that will make immediate and profound changes in any-or every area of your life. If you really want your life to improve, read this book immediately.”
-RUDY RUETTIGER, the Notre Dame football player who inspired the hit Hollywood movie RUDY
“At first I thought Hal had lost his mind-why on earth would anyone get up so early on a regular basis?!?! I was skeptical… until I tried it. When I implemented Hal’s strategies I noticed an immediate difference in my personal and professional life. The Miracle Morning(tm) will show you how to take control of your life, regardless of your past. I highly recommend it.”

The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.
-Alfred North Whitehead (Process and Reality)
PLATO and Aristotle were the most influential of all philosophers, ancient, medieval, or modern; and of the two, it was Plato who had the greater effect upon subsequent ages. I say this for two reasons: first, that Aristotle himself is an outcome of Plato; second, that Christian theology and philosophy, at any rate until the thirteenth century, was much more Platonic than Aristotelian. It is necessary, therefore, in a history of philosophic thought, to treat Plato, and to a lesser degree Aristotle, more fully than any of their predecessors or successors.
-Bertrand Russell (The History of Western Philosophy)
“Big Magic is a celebration of a creative life…Gilbert’s love of creativity is infectious, and there’s a lot of great advice in this sunny book…Gilbert doesn’t just call for aspiring artists to speak their truth, however daffy that may appear to others; she is showing them how.”
“In [Gilbert’s] first foray into full-on self-help [she] shares intimate glimpses into the life of a world-famous creative, complete with bouts of paralyzing fear and frustration, in an attempt to coax the rest of us into walking through the world just a little bit braver.” —Elle
“Elizabeth Gilbert is my new spirit animal… I have profoundly changed my approach to creating since I read this book.” —Huffington Post
