Inspired By Hal Elrod after his book Miracle Morning, I was crazy and honest enough to write a letter asking for feedback about my weakness. The letter below is what I wrote. I sent it to 10-11 family, friends and colleagues. I was brave enough to send within my company, to my immediate supervisor and team member. However, they didn’t feedback to me ( I desired their feedback actually)
The crazy letter....
Subject: Would love to get your opinion
Dear friends and family,
Thank you so much for reading this email. This isn’t an easy one for me to send, but it is extremely important to me, so I sincerely appreciate your valuable time reading ( and hopefully responding to) it.
This email is going out to only a select group of people. Each of you knows me well, and I’m hoping will give me honest feedback about my strength and most importantly, my weakness ( also known as ‘area of improvement’)
I’ve never done anything like this before, but I feel that for me grow and improve as a person, I need to get a more accurate picture of how I’m showing up to the people that matter most to me. In order to become the person I need to be to create the life and contribute to others at the levels that I want, I need your feedback.
So, all I m asking is that you just take a few minutes to email me back with what you honestly think are my top two/ three ‘ area of improvement’. If it will make you feel better to also list my top two / three ‘strengths’ ( I m sure it will make me feel better), you are definitely welcome to. That’s it. And please don’t hold back anything. I will not be offended by anything that you share. In fact, the more honest you are, the more leverage it will give me to make positive changes in my life.
Thank you again, and if there is anything else I can do to add value to your life, please let me know.
With sincere gratitude,
The crazy letter....comes powerful feedback ( I love it)
If you like to know how I start writing the letter (go here) , it is how I found my fear and act upon it

5am sends a very strong message
Do you know why is it 5 am?
5am send a strong message to yourself. It shows that you are willing to turn your life upside down to make a change for your life.
It sends a strong message of determination that you have to make something happen. The behaviour speaks for itself that your mind can will your body to do whatever your mind thinks. So, you feel powerful.
It is message that you tell yourself that you are strong, you are good, you have confidence, you are in control. A message of self-affirmation because what you promise yourself to do, you make it happen.
5am is a good time. It is a new idea. It is exciting. People will think you are crazy. You feel proud achieving it. It changes your habit. It motivates you to change.
5am sends a message to your friends, colleagues or even your staff. It shows your commitment, your self-control. You get respect. It tells them that you are trustworthy, whatever you want to do, you will have great influence on them. So it can help if you need to work with them, influence them or even lead them.
Doing the miracle morning can keep you feel energised and motivated.
The key is always persistence. We shall not expect that the 30 day challenge would get us what we want. We shall see it as a sign that we get to hang to take control of our own destiny.
I believe no success will come in an instant. You would have to keep on building to reach your dreams. We need to ride on our strengths or what we know we have an advantage over. This takes years to develop a skill better than others.
Riding on your strength is riding the wind. Like a boat, if you let the wind carry you, you be able to go much faster and easier. However, without proper practice and training, you don’t know how to catch the wind.
So even you success the miracle morning, you need to use the same determination so your strength will have time to grow and become unique.
Miracle starts in the morning. I m trying to concentrate in personal development:
