Just Not The Bandwagon Type

Once again, it has been too long since I have posted. One of the things I will be working on improving in my life – that’s for sure! There has been a lot going on too. Just haven’t felt like blogging about anything. Haven’t felt like doing much of ANYTHING really. Working on that…

Earlier in the summer when I was taking morning walks, I was listening to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks. My mind certainly has felt more enlightened by all of this learning, but at the same time I’ve felt a bit overwhelmed. The enlightenment has far outweighed the overwhelm for sure!

One of the podcasts I ran across was Hal Elrod’s Achieve Your Goals Podcast (opens in new window). WOW! I was instantly impressed after hearing Hal interviewed on another podcast and immediately needed to learn more. His podcasts are so inspiring to listen to.  I was intrigued about his book, but just not ready for it. His podcasts constantly invite you to join his Facebook page, but I was always hearing about it while I was out walking and away from my computer.

Finally one of my Facebook friends mentioned the book and it jogged my memory *while* I was at the computer, so I joined the group. Wow again! The group is so inspirational, whether you’re familiar with the book or not. I immediately added my husband to the group to see if it would inspire him at all. I have seen him click like on a few posts… 🙂

The book? Well that would be The Miracle Morning (opens in new window).

So where does this whole bandwagon problem of mine come in? SO MANY PEOPLE rave and rave about this book and the oppositional part of my brain yells “NO NO NO! REBEL!!!!!!!!!!” Seriously. If everyone else wants on board something, I want NOTHING to do with it. Nothing.

So MY first challenge with The Miracle Morning will be figuring out how to make it work for ME, without making me want to rebel against it. I’m very intrigued by the concepts. I already get up early and set aside time for myself in the morning. Sometimes I even am able to mix exercise into my morning routine. I don’t do everything that the book mentions, so there’s certainly room for improvement.

I just need to get past that whole “bandwagon” feeling, or I’m forever destined to be mediocre in life. I KNOW I’m better than mediocre, so something needs to change… quickly…
