It’s Not a Miracle Morning Routine Without Scribing
The Miracle Morning, is a book by Hal Elrod is regarded as one of the most life-changing books ever written. It shows you how to transform your life in only a few minutes per day through the power of a miracle morning routine. By using the SAVERS routine, you can create the life you’ve always wanted.
Each person can create miracle morning routines that fit their needs, schedules, and goals. Though many people might skip the SCRIBE part because they don’t see themselves as writers, it is critical to incorporate scribing into a daily routine, whether you consider yourself a budding Shakespeare or you have trouble stringing three words together into a coherent sentence.
How to SCRIBE
The most common way to writing down thoughts is to journal. Though journaling is fairly easy and most people have done it from time to time, your miracle morning routine might be more beneficial if you use the process of free writing instead of journaling. Free writing is a total stream of consciousness – you write down everything that comes into your mind as quickly as possible. Sounds easy, right? Well, once you get the hang of it, free writing is actually very simple.
Why Free Writing?
- It’s easy to do – no punctuation, no grammar rules, no proper sentence structure.
- It only takes five minutes or so to receive benefits.
- It slows down your mind and allows you to think more clearly – usually we think faster than we can write so are thoughts slow down as our writing tries to catch up!
- You become more aware of your thoughts – especially negative ones. When writing your thoughts down, the negative ones almost jump off the page!
- Over time, you will start to think more clearly and this will lead to an ability to speak more clearly. As your inner voice becomes clearer, your outer voice (the one you use to speak with others) becomes more clear and concise.
Don’t Be Afraid of Writing
Don’t be afraid to SCRIBE – your writing is only going to be seen by you – it’s not going to be critiqued or edited! When you SCRIBE as part of your miracle morning routine, you’ll become a better public speaker, a better coach, and a much better communicator. No matter what job you do or what relationships are important to you, everyone can benefit from improved communication skills.
