Mini-Series: Miracle Mornings

Finally, I commit myself to service.

My Miracle Morning Routine: Here is the breakdown of the terms and then exactly how I use them, in order:
T - Thanks
A - Affirm
S - Surrender
K - Kill
S - Serve

The first four help me still my body, focus my mind, soften (or heal) my heart, and tap into my soul so I am connected to the spirit. Finally, I commit myself to service.

A life lived in service to one’s self is a miserable life. That’s why so many rich people are miserable. You would think they’d be happier because they have so much. But most are not. Having wealth is not the problem. Thinking that wealth will make them happy—is the problem.

We will never find fulfillment if we think it’s about “me getting mine.” Fulfillment is found in service to others. Period. That’s how God wired this universe. We can’t escape it, no matter how hard we try.

So, before I get up from my seat, I remind myself, “I am here to serve. The work I do, it’s not to make a name for myself or to make a fortune for  myself. I’m here to serve others using the gifts, abilities, and experiences I have acquired.”

T.A.S.K.S—the work we do before we do our daily work. Find your time and place to do the real work before you get to your daily work.

If you start here, you’ll find that the rest of your work is more focused, fulfilling, and effective. Creativity will increase and so will productivity. Why? Because we’re in tune…aligned. We’re connected to ourselves and to God who created us.

Of course, before we conclude we must make mention of “The  Resistance.” Call it the shadow self, the false self, the enemy, or whatever—it’s resistance, opposing the work. Practically speaking:
• It’s the snooze button.
• It’s binge watching two more shows, late-night.
• It’s the whisper that “TASKS” aren’t working or aren’t worth it.
• It’s the voice in your mind that says you’re not good enough.
• It’s the temptation to go back to old ways.
• It’s the blahs.

It’s resistance to the good, beautiful, beneficial, and the journey of becoming all you were created to be. There will be resistance. Don’t be surprised. Be gracious to yourself when you experience it—even when resistance seems to be winning. Grace first. Starting with grace will lead you to growth.

Then, begin again.
