Build Consistency and Accountability into your Morning Routine

If you are here to learn how to build consistency and accountability into your morning routine then READ THIS WHOLE POST!

One of the most common questions people ask is how to build consistency in their morning routine and habits, so I jotted down some things that have worked for me over the course of the last 10 years or so of practice.

1.) Do it every day! Yes even on the weekends. This is probably the number one question I am asked, “So do you practice The Miracle Morning 5 days a week or 7 days a week?”

Easy. 7 days a week. My weekend Miracle Morning Is often longer than my weekday routine because I have more time and flexibility in my schedule since I typically do not work on the weekends.

2.) Imperfect Practice = Consistency

Whether you only have 6 minutes or 60 minutes to practice the routine, do it anyways. Some days will not be perfect. If you have kids (I have 3) anything can go off the rails in the morning. Whether you oversleep, hit the snooze button one too many times, have a busy day at work, etc invest even just a few minutes for yourself to start the day with focus and intention.

3.) Reward yourself – track your days on an app like Streaks ($4.99) and set a reward in place for when you hit 7 days in a row, 30 days in a row, 90 days, etc.

4.) Give yourself some grace. You are human, and therefore likely imperfect like myself. You will miss a day. Rather than beating yourself up over it or becoming frustrated, smile and reaffirm your commitment to never miss two days in a row.

5.) Prepare the night before. Put a glass of water next to the bed. Get out your gym clothes. Write down your intention for the day before bed. The last thought you go to bed with will likely be the one you wake up with so get excited about what you look forward to about your morning routine.

6.) If you are new to the routine start with one of the SAVERS. You don’t need to dive into all of them on day 1. Build one as a habit and then add one more. It’s even better if you add the first one onto a habit you already do everyday like brushing your teeth or making coffee. It’s called habit stacking. Use brushing your teeth as a reminder to meditate or read in the morning.

7.) Find someone to do it with you. Get an accountability partner who is committed to getting up at the same time as you and text each other each morning for accountability and encouragement.

8.) Get clear on why you are committed to making this a habit. Write down the one outcome, that if you knew you would achieve it in the next 30 days by practicing this routine, you would be excited to jump out of bed and start building. Then write it on your bathroom mirror, make it the screensaver on your phone, etc.

9.) Read the book and work through the Companion Guide on Amazon. The exercises will improve your morning routine, help you clarify your goals and vision, improve your productivity, and help you increase your sales. You can find them both on Amazon and I will link to them in the comments.
