A is for Affirmation

In this miniseries I’ll be talking about the stages of the Miracle Morning SAVERS!

This week I’d like to discuss the A of Affirmations.

It’s one of the parts that took some getting used to in the beginning. You take an affirmation from the Miracle Morning book or right one yourself. Then it’s just of daily repetition. You make yourself believe that what your telling yourself is or will be the truth! What was hard for me was saying out loud what you would like to happen in the future. For the down to earth Dutch guy that I am this was a bit of a struggle:-)

S for Silence

In this miniseries I’ll be talking each week about one of the stages of the Miracle Morning SAVERS!

Today it’s all about the first S. The first S stands for Silence. You can interpret that in a number of

problems present themselves.

However, in this quote the problems are described as trees. This is great
as it brings the solution for those problems as well. In the quote, but
also in real life!

Great session with the bootcamp club Utrecht

My marathon training schedule is not totally complete. It will take a lot of running for sure. And I’m gonna build up my core, shoulders and arms. You really need that with the obstacles in an OCR.

Tonights session with the bootcampclub in Utrecht was great! I train there with a collegue in the medium group. We just got a new trainer and he’s superb! He trains different muscle groups and takes you to the edge.
