Hal Elrod is the best-selling author of The Miracle Morning, a book that is widely acclaimed as one of the most life changing books of all time.
But most amazing about Hal’s story is the fact that he wrote the book at a low period of his life, but had a vision for the book that it would change the world in a massive way.
A quote by Jim Rohn was the catalyst for Hal — “Your level of success will never exceed your level of personal development.” So Hal went out to find what the most successful people in the world did on a daily basis to create their ideal life. In the end, it wasn’t ONE thing, but about SIX things that the most successful people in the world do every day.
So Hal got up at 5am and started doing these six things every day and it profoundly changed his life.
Around the 16:00 mark, Hal describes what happened when he was hit head on by a drunk driver at the age of 19 and woke up in a state of complete unknowing of what had happened. A week after the accident, the doctors were seriously concerned about Hal because they thought mentally and emotionally he was in denial. Physically, he was in repair, but internally (emotionally) Hal had learned how to live by the 5 minute rule. That is, for 5 minutes you can be mad, sad, angry, frustrated, etc. at a situation, but after that, you have to accept what is and decide how you’re going to live your life.
If you’re thinking about reading The Miracle Morning, but afraid that you’re not a morning person, Hal says don’t worry! In The Miracle Morning community, almost 70% of the people asked were not originally morning people, but in waking up BETTER, it became easier to get started with their days.
According to Hal, it’s about Impact, Income, and Legacy. Building a bigger life is simple when you’re focused on making a difference in the lives of other people.
