Hal Elrod on Changing Behaviors, Living a Level 10 Life, & How Life-Altering Events Shape Our Lives
Life is about how you can serve other people. This is how we find fulfillment - you get rich by helping enough other people to achieve what they want and add value to their life.
This week, I’m joined by Hal Elrod, founder of the Miracle Morning and an author and speaker. In this episode, we talk about how Hal went from class clown to changing lives with his Miracle Morning, the value in a great support system and how vulnerability shapes how you are received.
Three Things We Learned
Our morning ritual is crucial. The mindset shift can turn your life around in as little as a few weeks.
Focus on behavior, not thought. If you can change someone’s behavior in a meaningful way that changes their life, their progress will perpetuate.
Choose to fail forward and fake it till you make it. Even if you don’t feel confident or courageous, do it anyway. We all struggle with fears, self-doubt, and insecurity. Do it anyway.
More About Hal Elrod
Hal Elrod is on a mission to elevate the consciousness of humanity, one morning at a time. As one of the highest rated keynote speakers in America, creator of one of the fastest growing and most engaged online communities in existence and author of one of the highest rated, best-selling books in the world, The Miracle Morning—which has been translated into 27 languages, has over 2,000 five-star Amazon reviews and is practiced daily by over 500,000 people in 70+ countries—he is doing exactly that.
Hal actually died at age 20. Hit head-on by a drunk driver at 70 miles per hour, he was clinically dead for 6 minutes, broke 11 bones, and eventually woke from a coma to be told by doctors that he would never walk again.
Not only did Hal walk, he went on to run a 52 mile ultra-marathon and become a hall of fame business achiever—before the age of 30.
Then, in November of 2016, Hal nearly died again—his kidneys, lungs, and heart on the verge of failing, which led to his being diagnosed with a very rare, very aggressive form of cancer (acute lymphoblastic leukemia).
After enduring the most difficult year of his life, Hal is now cancer-free and furthering his mission as the Executive Producer of The Miracle Morning Movie—a documentary that both shows you the morning rituals of some of the world’s most successful people, as well as takes you around the world to show you the life-changing impact that Miracle Mornings are having, globally.
Hal is also host of the highly acclaimed Achieve Your Goals podcast, creator of the Best Year Ever Blueprint Live Experience, and bestselling author of ten  books in The Miracle Morning book series.
As one of the most inspiring, highly entertaining (we’re talking stand-up comedian level humor), and one of the most in-demand keynote speakers in the world, whether you are an individual or an organization, Hal will give you the tools to Wake Up to Your Full Potential.
