Chapter 6: The Life S.A.V.E.R.S.
“Success is something you attract by the person you become.” — Jim Rohn
Your life is made up of four components:
- Physical - Your body, health, and energy.
- Intellectual - Your mind, intelligence, and thoughts.
- Emotional - Your emotions, feelings, and attitudes.
- Spiritual - Your spirit, soul and unseen higher powers.
By focusing on developing your four components, you craft a better version of yourself. This is because the person you are is not what surrounds you, but what’s inside of you.
So, in order to level-up your life, you must find the time to develop all these components. And guess what? Mornings are the best time to do it.
In order to develop these components, Hal Elrod designed six practices that he calls The Life S.A.V.E.R.S. Let’s take a closer look at each one.
Silence reduces your stress level, and allows you to begin each day with calmness, clarity, and peace of mind.
Affirmations mostly happen unconsciously. We repeat them until they become part of us and part of our beliefs. Affirmations reprogram our brain. Write your affirmations in such a way that they are aligned with what you really want to accomplish and who you need to be to accomplish your goals. Repeat them daily.
Your brain does not see a big difference between a visualization and an actual experience. Through visualization you can reprogram your brain.
Exercising for only a few minutes every morning will boost your energy, enhance your health, and improve your self-confidence and emotional well-being.
Don’t reinvent the wheel. The fastest way to achieve everything you want is to model yourself after successful people who have already achieved it.
Writing things down forces you to consider them and helps you to resolve problems more easily. Also, it’s easy to forget your ideas, so you should capture ideas while you are thinking about them.
How much time should you spend on each part?
Here is a 60 minute sample schedule:
- Silence: 5 min
- Affirmation: 5 min
- Visualization: 5 min
- Exercise: 20 min
- Reading: 20 min
- Scribing: 5 min
However, if you don’t have that much time, any amount of time is okay as long as you stick with it.
