THE MIRACLE MORNING BY HAL ELROD
I absolutely love this book. Before I came across this book, my morning rituals included snoozing the alarm button and praying for 5 minutes so I could go back to bed, and this is not a great way to start your morning. It is important to have a great start because success begins once you get your day right. Your morning routine should involve setting your intentions for the day, and this what this book does for you. It covers six morning routines you should practice that will elevate your life and career. However, it takes a bit of commitment, but once you follow it duly, you will see great results. This book is magical and if you are ready to leave procrastination behind, then I recommend this.
