The picture above shows my view as I leave the house in the morning to do my miracle morning exercise. On either side of me are two large trees. When standing at my front door, these trees block my view of the street, the sky, and much of my surroundings. These trees without a doubt, are an obstacle. The question the trees raise is whether they are a problem or protection?

Interestingly, that is a question that so many things raise in the life of an entrepreneur. Think about the following obstacles:
- regulations change the way you are allowed to do business
- electrical work in the neighborhood blocks traffic to your business
- a current supplier goes out of business

Each of these items is an obstacle. Each can be protection from something else or a problem to be overcome. Changes in regulations regarding your business are an obstacle. Regulations may prevent you from doing things the way you did in the past and that is a problem. At the same time, regulatory changes may offer protection because they may prevent dangerous practices from taking place.
When electrical work in the neighborhood happens and traffic to your business is diverted that is a problem. Clients have problems buying from businesses they cannot reach. At the same time, it can be protection. This situation will cause you to look at ways to increase online sales. Finding ways to overcome this obstacle may push you to find new ways to do business.
When a current supplier goes out of business, it is an obstacle. It is a problem because you are no longer to use a safe and trusted source. At the same time, it may be protection. It will remind you that it is not best for your business to have only one source of important supplies. This may help you to prepare for the future by having additional suppliers n your pipeline.
It is a good idea to occasionally use your miracle morning time to look at obstacles in your life to determine if they are problems or protection.
*** What the Miracle Morning means in my world.***
Recently, I decided to start a Miracle Morning routine. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, it involves getting up a little earlier in the day. The day starts with you doing SAVERS. To translate that into English, it means:
In my world, I start with spirituality – I read my Bible and pray. Next, I read or write affirmations. I do a lot of work dealing with creating confidence so I read my creating confidence affirmations or spend time creating 1 or 2 more. For visualization, I spend time picturing what will make the day successful. Exercise involves me taking a 20-minute walk around the neighborhood. After my walk, I read. I created a reading list for the mornings. This is a list of books, I want to read for pleasure, for enrichment, or because I need to read them. Finally, it is time to scribe or write. I have decided to turn the things I think about on my walks into blog articles for my scribe activity.
Stay tuned for our next installment in the Miracle Morning series.
