A simple approach, creating the perfect morning routine will help you tackle the rest of the day as your best self. Starting every morning like that has a ripple effect with life-changing results. Today, we speak with the creator of the Miracle Morning, best-selling author and keynote speaker, Hal Elrod. But Hal wasn’t always a morning person.


Early in the episode, he talks about the events in his life that transformed him, including how he experienced a horrific accident at 20 years old. We discuss how this gave him a sense of purpose and taught him that the external world couldn’t affect his inner happiness and sense of gratitude.


Hal chats about discovering his Miracle Morning concept while struggling through the 2008 crash. By using the morning to maintain his physical and emotional wellbeing, he was able to set the tone for his life, one day at a time. We then dive into how Hal self-published his Miracle Morning book and used Facebook to build his personal brand and drive sales. We ask him why he went the self-publishing route and then unpack the costs and process of self-publishing your book.


Near the end of the episode, Hal touches on his upcoming documentary and how this movie will help him expand to a larger audience. Tune in to hear more about Hal’s journey and the benefits of starting each day with a Miracle Morning.
