I must admit that I had downloaded the two free chapters of The Miracle Morning book, but I hadn’t read them, and I think it’s because there was no promise made of what I would receive from reading them, but here are the highlights from Chapters 1 & 2:
“Even when life is difficult or challenging—especially when life is difficult and challenging—the present is always an opportunity for us to learn, grow, and become better than we’ve ever been before.” -Hal Elrod
Hal shares the story of the 70mph car crash that put him in a coma and awakened him to the miracle that life is. I’m not sure if this was around the time that he coined the phrase “Give up being perfect for being authentic,” but that is one of his sayings that has stuck with me over the years.
The Accident Broke His Body But Not His Spirit
“And, as a result of choosing to be genuinely grateful for all that I had, unconditionally accepting of all that I didn’t, and accepting total responsibility for creating all that I wanted, this potentially devastating car accident ultimately became one of the best things that ever happened to me…I used my accident to fuel a triumphant come back.”
Even when the publisher of his first best-selling book took of with his royalties in 2006, he was not defeated. He chose to remain grateful and keep creating more opportunities for himself and his family.
He quotes Seth Godin: “Life’s too short” is repeated often enough to be a cliché, but this time it’s true. You don’t have enough time to be both unhappy and mediocre. It’s not just pointless; it’s painful.”
Les Brown, Tony Robbins and many others credit Jim Rohn with their early success. Hal is one of them too. Jim said, “Your level of success will seldom succeed your level of personal development.” Actually, a former coach of mine quotes him quite often without crediting him.
As a success coach, Hal Elrod walks clients through how they can ‘Attract, Create, and Sustain’ level of success they desire. Developing The Miracle Morning was a part of his journey to ensuring he accomplished that for himself.
For those of you who don’t know, I am in the middle of a 90 Day Challenge with myself in which I am just applying everything I am learning from the guy in the banner next to this post. I understand this principle. Hall goes a little bit deeper. He examines our very nature as humans. He states “as human beings we were born with the innate desire and drive to continuously grow and improve.” This couldn’t be more true.
The average American is 20 lbs. overweight, $10,000 in debt, slightly depressed, dislikes his or her job, and has less than one close friend.
Life stays that way if we let it. Many of us have given up, and think there is nothing we can do about it, but Hal Elrod says by doing the Miracle Morning he went from being in the worst shape of his life and drowning in $450,000 in personal debt to building multiple successful businesses, paying off 100% of my debt, more than doubling my income, and achieving my dreams of becoming an international keynote speaker, having my story featured in the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, being interviewed on radio and TV shows across the country, and performing at my mental and physical peak by completing a 52-mile ultra-marathon—all in less than 12 months.
That sounds a bit miraculous
He also quoted George Lorimer: “You’ve got to wake up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” He promises that you’ll quickly see that when you change the way you wake up in the morning, you change your entire life.

Hal and I have something in common. We are both former Cutco sales representatives that don’t hate the company. He actually rose to the ranks of an award winning district sales manager and hall of fame inductee, while I went through the assistant manager training, couldn’t take the pressure and bailed. I took a summer off to work in a national park, and when I returned my district manager had closed the office due to damage from Hurricane Charley (or so I was told).
I think that the miracle morning works because Hal is always reading the best motivational books, motivational quotes and self development books. But, maybe we’ve already been there; maybe you already have like 20+ self development books. The Miracle Morning takes it a step further by giving you the process to take what you’re reading and turn it into a life transformation. In my opinion, he has some of the greatest motivational quotes in his book, but don’t take my word for it.
