The Jay Kim Show #14: Hal Elrod (Transcript)
Today’s guest is Hal Elrod. Hal has one of the most fascinating stories you’ll ever hear. At the age of 20, he was hit head-on by a drunk driver at 70 miles an hour and found dead at the scene. He was dead for six minutes, in a coma for six days, and the doctors told him that he would never walk again. But, despite all that, Hal defied the logic of doctors and he refused to be a victim. He proved that any one of us can overcome extraordinary adversity in our lives.
Hal went on to write a number one bestselling book called The Miracle Morning. In this book, he talks about how any one of us can transform our lives in as little as six minutes a day. I know you’re going to enjoy today’s episode. Let’s jump right in.
Jay: Why don’t we begin and just get right into it? Because I know we have a limited amount of time. Man, your story’s so inspirational. I don’t even know where to begin. But, for my listeners out here in Asia, who is Hal Elrod and how did you become who you are right now?
Hal: I think that, first and foremost, I am a husband and a father. I didn’t always put those first and foremost. I think there was a time when I was pursuing goals and success so much, and I thought it was in the name of being a husband and a father until a friend made me realize that we both needed to be husbands and fathers first, and all the success we were pursuing and the work we were doing, that was really a far second in terms of what was important in our lives. I’m probably best known though now as the author of a book called “The Miracle Morning” which has, it’s sold a few hundred thousand copies now around the world and translated in 21 languages. Every day I’m still in awe of seeing the profound impact that it is making in people’s lives.
Jay: That’s amazing. Has it been translated into Chinese yet?
Hal: It will be. I’ve signed on to have it translated and published in 21, 22 different languages. So far it’s French, it is Korean. Portuguese is about to come out. Spanish is about to come out. German is about to come out. I honestly can’t keep track. I need to be on top of all the dates when all the different books are coming out. Someone will reach out that’s from another country and go, “Oh, I read your book in this language.” I go, “Oh, I didn’t even know it had come out yet in that language. Cool.”
Jay: Awesome. Awesome. Congrats on being a father. Is that recent?
Hal: No no no. My daughter just turned seven and my son just turned four.
Hal: I think we’re done at two. It’s amazing.
Jay: So good to have you. If you could just quickly … I know your story is amazing, and I don’t want to … I want to give it as much time as it deserves. If you can briefly run my audience through exactly what happened. You at one point became an entrepreneur, and then you had a series of I’d say not so fortunate events happen to you in life, but you somehow pulled your way out of that. Now you’re an extremely, extremely successful entrepreneur. If you could just please run us through that, that would be very amazing.
Hal: For me, I think that the place to start where it becomes significant and there’s some lessons that we can draw. When I was 19 years old, I took a job in direct sales, where I was selling Cutco Cutlery, just high-quality kitchen knives, in people’s houses through demonstrations. I didn’t really have a big dream or ambition with it. A friend of mine was doing it, and I thought it was a way where I could set my schedule around college. My first 10 days I broke the all time company record, where I sold more Cutco kitchen knives in my first 10 days than just about anybody had in the history of the company. What’s important to note is that I was very mediocre and average my whole life before that.
What that taught me is that it really is in a moment of decision where we decide to commit at a level we’ve never been committed before to a single purpose or a single goal, that that’s when we go from being ordinary to being extraordinary, or from being average or being mediocre to really starting to fulfill our potential and tap into what we all have, which is this unlimited potential that so few people ever even come close to. When I was 19 I got my first glimpse of that. A year and a half later, I suffered my most extraordinary adversity driving home from a sales conference. I was hit head-on by a drunk driver. My car was hit head-on by a drunk driver on the freeway at 70 miles per hour and I died.
I was clinically dead for six minutes. I had broken 11 bones, suffered a lot of internal injuries. I was clinically dead for six minutes and then rushed to the hospital, brought back to life. I was in a coma for six days. When I came out of the coma, they told me that I would probably, they being the doctors, I’d probably never walk again and I had permanent brain damage. Obviously, as you said, it’s a story that we could … There’s a lot to the story. The short version of it is I decided that I couldn’t change what had happened to me, but I could choose what I was going to focus on.
I chose to accept that I was in this car accident. I chose to not feel sorry for myself. I chose to accept the worst-case scenario, which was that I might never walk again, and make peace with that so that it wouldn’t destroy me emotionally. I decided that if I was in a wheelchair the rest of my life that I would be the most grateful person you had ever seen in a wheelchair in your life. I thought, “If I’m in a wheelchair anyway, I can either be mad about that and sad about that and depressed about that, or I can be happy and grateful for everything that I still had in my life.” I think for all of us, if someone’s unhappy, it has nothing to do with what’s going on around us and it has everything to do with what’s going on inside of us.
That’s what that taught me, is that even the most difficult circumstances of my life, I was the happiest I’d ever been. In fact, the doctors thought I was in denial because I was so happy. They thought I was delusional because I was so happy. But, two weeks later, they came in with x-rays and they said, “We don’t know how to explain this, but your body is healing so quickly. We’re going to let you take your first step tomorrow in therapy.” I went from never walking again to, “You’re going to walk tomorrow.” That was just three weeks after the crash, two weeks after I came out of the coma. I took my first step and went on from there.
Jay: That’s unbelievable. Sorry. I got to interject.
Hal: Go ahead.
Jay: Hal, I have to ask, before this happened to you, were you always a positive person? Would you say that about yourself?
Hal: Kind of. I attribute it to what I learned when I started in sales was a big part of it. I learned from my mentor something called the five minute rule, which was when things go wrong, when you experience a disappointment or a tragedy, it’s okay to feel bad, but not for more than five minutes. We literally were taught, set your timer on your phone for five minutes and give yourself five minutes to feel it. Bitch, moan, complain, cry, whatever you got to do. But when the timer goes off, you make an intelligent decision that you go, “Okay, well, I can’t change what happened five minutes ago, so there’s no point in fostering negative emotions.”
There’s no point in resisting it and wishing it didn’t happen and saying it’s unfair. The only logical, intelligent choice is accept it. Be at peace with it and focus all of my energy off of the thing I can’t change and onto what I can control, what’s in my control to move forward. Granted, the adversity that I experienced in the car accident was much greater than I … We were taught that strategy for customers that didn’t buy from us, or something. It was a much more extreme adversity. But what I realized is the principle’s the same. I was in a car accident. I broke my bones. I might never walk again. But, from thereon, I couldn’t change that, but I could choose what I did from that point on. I could choose to make it into a positive. I could choose to turn the adversity into an advantage. I could right all of those things.
Jay: I think your mentor would probably allow more than five minutes for what you went through.
Hal: I think probably for that one. But I applied the five minute rule. Maybe it was a five day rule at that point. I took a few days to process it and went, “All right. Well, what am I going to do with this?”
Jay: I love that. It reminds me so much of stories such as Viktor Frankl. Tony Robbins talks about it all the time. Life happens for you, not to you. Happiness comes from within. I think that’s really just so important. The miracles that happen in your healing is a clear testament of that I think. I firmly believe that.
Hal: I don’t have a graph that shows people, “You can see, as my brainwaves were positive, my body healed quicker.” I can’t show that evidence in day-to-day or moment-to-moment. But obviously the results were pretty incredible.
Jay: That was the big adversity. Then, after that, I know that there was another low point I believe during the financial crisis.
Hal: Yeah. The economy crashed in 2008. Prior to 2008, I was as successful as I’d ever been. I had hit Hall of Fame with my Cutco Company. Then I moved on and I started my own business doing sales coaching and business and life coaching. I wrote my first book called “Taking Life Head On”. I started speaking professionally, which was a dream of mine that I’d had for five or six years. Finally made it happen. Then the economy crashes and I crash with it. It felt like overnight, but I lost my house. I tripled my body fat percentage. I stopped exercising. I was depressed. I went from being debt-free to having $52,000 in credit card debt, and climbing every day. I couldn’t pay the bills.
To keep a long story short, basically one day a friend had a conversation with me that led me to go on a quest to figure out what do the world’s most successful people do every day for personal development that I’m not doing? What could I do that would enable me to become a better version of myself so that I could achieve the success that I used to have and even greater? I kept coming across morning rituals and early rising, but I kept going, “No no no. I’m not a morning person. What else do they do? What else do they do?” Finally I had read so many different articles about how the world’s most successful people, most of them swear by their morning ritual. I finally went, “I have to try this. I’ve got to get out of my comfort zone. I’ve got to do something different if I want my life to be different.”
I woke up the next morning an hour earlier and I did these six practices. I basically decided, “If I’m going to wake up an hour earlier, I’m going to make it count. What are the best personal development practices in the world that I can do within this hour in the morning?” I did all six of them. Within two months I more than doubled my income. I went from being in the worst shape of my life physically to committing to run a 52-mile ultra marathon because I hated running.
Hal: I thought, “What better way to grow as a person than to commit to run 52 miles? I hate running, so, wow, that’d be a new me.” My depression went away the first day. Because my life changed so profoundly financially, physically, emotionally, I started calling it my Miracle Morning. But, keep in mind, Jay, that wasn’t a book title. It wasn’t a book idea. It was just my Miracle Morning. But then I taught it to one of my coaching clients, Katie, and she goes, “Hal, I’m not a morning person, but it’s pretty convincing. I’ll give it a shot.” A week later we get on the call and she goes, “Oh my gosh. It worked. I’m a morning person. I just had the best week in my entire sales career. I read an entire book that’s been sitting on my shelf. I’m so motivated. I’m so energized.”
That’s when the light bulb went off and I went, “Wow. If it worked for me and it worked for Katie, this whole Miracle Morning thing could change anyone’s life.” It did it so quickly for us I thought, “I wonder if it could do it for other people that quickly.” Now the rest is history, as they say.
Jay: I’m really excited to be speaking with you. I have a little fitness business on the side. I do some coaching, fitness coaching. I’ve always been … I don’t think anyone’s actually a morning morning person, per se.
Hal: Everybody would rather lay in bed.
Jay: It’s human nature.
Jay: I definitely made a commitment to fitness about 12, 13 years ago. I always worked out in the morning. It was more because that was where I was more productive and clear. Quite frankly, at the end of the day, I just would keep blowing off my workouts. But after having been a morning workout guy, I myself stumbled upon, before reading your book, I stumbled upon my own Miracle Morning, because I realized … This was quite recent. This was probably two years ago that I actually started waking up before my workout to read, because I love reading and I just never had the time to do it. It wasn’t much. It was probably 30 minutes. Then I stumbled upon your book and I was like, “Oh my gosh. This is amazing.”
Because it was literally, everything that you talk about in the book is exactly what I was experiencing at the time, because I just found that everything was so much better in my life. I was always a morning workout guy. But then once I started stimulating my brain as well in the morning, that just made the biggest difference in the world, because it was self-betterment. When I was waking up, it was much easier to wake up, because it wasn’t, “Oh, I have to go work out now.” It was, “Oh, I get to go read,” and that’s something that I want to do. Let’s dig into “The Miracle Morning”. I really want to go into your six steps and tactics, and how can this directly positively affect an entrepreneur today?
Hal: Absolutely. In fact, “The Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs” is the next book in this series that comes out in November this year.
Jay: I can’t wait.
Hal: I co-authored it with Cameron Herold, the former COO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK. I’m excited for that one.
Jay: Is that available for presale, by the way?
Hal: Not yet. No. It’ll be a bit. What’s interesting is, the Miracle Morning, when we put on our first live event, actually our second live event last year, Best Year Ever Blueprint, someone asked me, “What percentage of your audience is entrepreneurs?” I went, “God, I have no idea. That’s terrible. I should know that.” I sent out an intake form to our attendees. It was like 83 percent of our audience, and they all came from “The Miracle Morning” book is where they started, were entrepreneurs. It really is the largest segment of the population that does the Miracle Morning every day are entrepreneurs.
The six practices are organized into an acronym, which is the SAVERS. S-A-V-E-R-S. That was not from day one. It was my brilliant wife who saw me frustrated working on my book one day because I couldn’t figure out how to organize these six practices. She goes, “Why don’t you get a thesaurus and find words that mean the same thing, synonyms, that you can organize into an acronym?” I was like, “You’re brilliant.”
Jay: Brilliant. Woman’s touch.
Hal: Exactly. Meditation became silence, which is the first S in SAVERS. Journaling became scribing, which is the last S in SAVERS. If you left it meditation and journaling, it’d be MAVERJ. That’d be the acronym. It wouldn’t flow very well. What’s great is it couldn’t be a better acronym, because I really believe these are the practices that are virtually guaranteed to save us from missing out on the life that we’re meant to live, really our full potential.
The first S being silence, this is about starting your day with purposeful silence. That can be meditation. It can be prayer. It can be a combination of both. But just meditation alone, if you Google “benefits of meditation,” there are over 1,400 scientific studies that have proven the mental, the psychological, intellectual, and physiological benefits of meditation. People that meditate live longer. You think clearer. You have lower stress levels, which is probably why you live longer. Starting your day with peaceful, purposeful silence is the first part of the Miracle Morning. I joke in the book that, “Hey, it couldn’t get easier. I’m asking you to start by doing nothing. Saying nothing. Just sit there.” Obviously there’s a little more to it than that.
The A is for affirmations. This is my favorite part of the SAVERS and the Miracle Morning. People ask, “Do you have a favorite SAVERS?” I say, “I’m totally unabashedly yes. It’s affirmations.” The way they’ve been taught for decades, maybe centuries, is not the way that I’m talking about affirmations I think have a bad rap, because the way that a lot of self-help gurus have taught them is lie to yourself. You want to be a millionaire? Just say, “I’m a millionaire. I’m a millionaire. I’m a millionaire.” You’re fighting truth. The truth will always prevail.
The way that I did affirmations in the book, there’s really four steps to creating affirmations that are goal-oriented, results oriented, and actionable. Number one is, what do you want? Specifically, what’s the result you want? In the book I say phrase it in terms of being committed to that result. Instead of saying, “I am a millionaire,” I would say, “I am committed to becoming a millionaire.” Step two is the why. What’s the reason behind it that will drive you beyond just the number? What’s the why, the compelling reason behind it? For me, it’s providing financial freedom for my family and being able to give away half of my income to charity. Those motivate me beyond just making millions of dollars. The why is step two.
Step three is the how. How are you going to do it? What are you going to do? What are the specific actions that you have to take that you’re committed to taking? Then step four is when. You’re really getting clear on what you have to do and actually beyond that. You’re actually looking at your schedule and going, “When will I take those recurring actions? When will I go to the gym each day? What activities will I do? What exercises?” Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. That’s the affirmations formula that I teach you in the book.
Jay: That’s quite detailed, actually. You go down to quite a granular level on the affirmation part.
Hal: Absolutely. Because otherwise it just makes you feel good in the moment. It’s funny. A lot of people that abide by the old school way of doing affirmations, they love affirmations because it makes them feel good, because it gives them this illusion of everything’s going to be okay while they read them. But then nothing changes. They’re like, “Yeah, I love affirmations. I’ve been doing them for years.” You go, “Well, what’s changed?” They’re like, “Well, I just feel good when I do them.” I want to feel good when I do them because I know they’re generating results for me, not just making me feel good. That’s affirmations.
The V is for visualization. I won’t go into a lot of depth on that. I’ll just say, in the book I do it the same as affirmations. How do you make it not just woo-woo, not vague, but how do you make it actionable? How do you take visualizations so it actually creates results on a day-to-day basis? All I’ll say about it is that if you look at the world’s most successful athletes, they all swear by visualization.
Jay: I was just going to say.
Hal: They attribute high performance to visualization. It’s a big part of it. Why would we not do that to perform at our best as parents, as salespeople, as entrepreneurs? Why would we not do the same?
Jay: 100 percent.
Hal: The how to do it of course obviously is another matter. The E in SAVERS is for exercise. I’m not saying that you can’t go to the gym in the afternoon. I’m just saying that if you study the benefits of morning exercise specifically, when you exercise in the morning you increase your energy throughout the entire day. You immediately get blood and oxygen to your brain and through your entire body, which allows you to have more energy and think clearer, and it releases serotonin, so you feel better. I use an app called 7 Minute Workout in the morning, so it doesn’t even take a long time. Seven minutes. Even if you do 60 seconds of jumping jacks, you’ll be in a much better state mentally, physically, and emotionally than you were 60 seconds before the jumping jacks started.
Jay: That’s key. I think that people don’t … A lot of people underestimate the power of exercise and the actual link between physicality and your brain, your cognitive function.
Hal: Totally. Somebody asked me yesterday while I was doing a … I have a group coaching program and we were doing a call. They said, “What’s your go-to when you find yourself in a moment of weakness?” I said, “Exercise.” When I say it, though, I literally mean often 60 seconds. If I’m feeling low energy, low power, low clarity, low focus, I don’t feel motivated, I get up and I do 60 seconds of jumping jacks. I just get my heart rate up and I breathe and then boom. I’m motivated. I’ve generated that energy, that motivation that I need.
Hal: R in SAVERS is for reading. Again, not a lot to talk about here, other than the fact that I believe we’re all one book away from learning the knowledge, the strategy that we need to improve any area of our lives. You want to have what I would call level 10 success in every area where, on a scale of one to 10, you’re either experiencing or moving in the direction of level 10 success in your health, your happiness, your relationships, your finances, et cetera. I think reading books that will help you get there is one of the most significant strategies to do that.
The final S is for scribing. Scribing is, again, it’s a fancy word thanks to the thesaurus for writing. Basically it’s the power of putting pen to paper. In fact, I recently went on a binge where I read a bunch of books and studied happiness. Everything, almost every single book from “Happy For No Reason” to … I’m trying to think of all the books. “The Happiness Advantage”, et cetera, et cetera, which is based on Harvard research by Shawn Anchor. They all say the same thing. It’s funny, actually. It was very affirming. Almost all of the books, what they taught is that it was the SAVERS. They all said journaling what you’re grateful for. That was in every book. Exercise was in every book. Meditation was in almost every single study on being happy. I was like, “Wow. So, in other words, you do the Miracle Morning every day and you’ll be much happier.”
That’s the scribing. For me, I use something called Five Minute Journal. There is a physical version at FiveMinuteJournal.com. However, I personally use the app, because I have my phone with me at all times and don’t want to carry a journal around. Five Minute Journal’s an app. It’s a really simple structured quick journal that every day sets you up with simple prompts. “What are three things you’re grateful for? What are the three most important things you need to do today to win the day? Then, at the end of the day, what are the three things that happened today that were amazing? What are three things you’re going to do better tomorrow?” It’s just a real simple, real concise form of scribing that allows you to optimize both your internal game for the day but then optimize your clarity to generate the best results that you can for the day.
Jay: That’s great. That’s great. Five Minute, is it the number five or …
Hal: F-I-V-E. If you go to the website, F-I-V-E, FiveMinuteJournal.com. The last thing I’ll say on this, Robert Kiyosaki reached out to me. I’m a huge fan of his. He wrote the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. He reached out to me and he said he had read “The Miracle Morning” three times, said it totally changed his life. He started doing the SAVERS. He does them almost every day.
Jay: That’s unbelievable.
Hal: My jaw hit the floor. It still doesn’t feel real to say it. He said it better than I had ever said it. He said, “Hal, before,” and I’m paraphrasing here, but he said, “Before the Miracle Morning, every successful person in the world swore by at least one of the SAVERS. Maybe two. Very few even did three. I had never heard of anyone,” he said, “that did all six of these ancient best practices every day.” He said, “And that’s why I believe the Miracle Morning is so effective, and that’s why I do it every day. I do all six practices almost every single day.” That’s it. Any one of the SAVERS is a game-changer, but you do all six and you see results that are beyond what you think is even possible.
Jay: That’s amazing. I just have to quickly say, I do a lot. I do probably four of the SAVERS. The one that I’ve always struggled with is the first one, actually, is the meditation one. I’ve always been like, “Is it hokey?” I’ve done very, very cursory research on meditation. I know that a lot of very, very successful people swear by it, even in the fitness world and whatnot. What’s the quickest way for someone to just dabble into meditation? What would you suggest?
Hal: Two things I would suggest. The first is guided meditation is what I recommend starting with. In “The Miracle Morning” book, that’s what I tell people. Don’t try to master meditation. You’ll get frustrated right off the bat. Just go to YouTube and search “five minute guided meditation.” If you want to get specific, search … You could do 10 minute. You could do whatever you want. There’s so many videos on YouTube that are free. But “five minute guided meditation.” You can get specific. You can do “five minute parenting guided meditation.” My wife and I found this one that was amazing and totally changed how we parent. YouTube is a great place to start.
There’s also an app called Omvana. O-M as in Mary, V as in Victor, A-N as in Nancy. Omvana is a meditation app. That’s a good one as well. The other thing is, I’m actually reading a book right now and I’m listening to the same guy’s audio program. It’s called “The Science of Enlightenment” by Shinzen Young. If you’ve already read “The Miracle Morning”, like for you Jay, meditation is something you want to go deeper in, “The Science of Enlightenment”. It’s really helping me deepen my understanding of meditation. I’m reading the book and then I’m listening to his audio program on Audible in the car every day.
What’s interesting is, from what I can tell, the Audible program isn’t the book word for word, but it’s the same material loosely. You’re getting two different … I’m big on repetition. I like to hear it. I like to read it and go back and forth. For you, to go deeper on meditation, I would read those books. Also, guided meditations are just a simple way where someone’s leading you through what to focus on, what to think about, how to breathe, et cetera, so you don’t have to figure it out on your own.
Jay: That’s awesome. Hal, we got to look to wrap up here. Hal, have you ever been out to Asia before?
Hal: I have not. No. I have not.
Jay: That’s one of our goals, then, in the next year or so. I want to get you out here.
Hal: I love it.
Jay: What’s Hal Elrod’s final piece of advice to listeners that may have never heard of you, people out in Asia? What’s the final piece that you’d like to leave the audience with?
Hal: You know, it goes back to the first … It was the subtitle of my very first book, which was called “Taking Life Head On”. The subtitle, “Love the Life You Have While You Create the Life of Your Dreams”. I’ve since expanded on that by adding a piece, which is, “Don’t Think You Have to Choose One Over the Other”. I think that so often you find we think that we need to create the life of our dreams before we can really feel happy. We’re not satisfied with the life that we have. I find that if you don’t learn how to love the life that you have now, you’ll never really be able to love the life that you think you want, because once you get it …
We see this with so many celebrities. They’re so focused on their dreams from a young age, and then they create the life of their dreams, and then they turn to drugs and alcohol and even suicide. My theory on why that is, is they never learned how to be grateful for what they had and love the life they had, so when they got what they thought they wanted, they didn’t know how. They didn’t have the mindset. They didn’t know how to appreciate it for what it was. If you can learn to love the life you have now, even though it’s not perfect and it’s not the way that you want it to be. It’ll never be perfect, and human beings will never be the way you want them to be, because you’ll always want the next level. You’ll always want more. It’s really about learning to love the life you have right now. That should be first priority.
Then, while you’re loving and being grateful and enjoying your life, make sure you’re every day taking action toward becoming the person that you need to be to be able to create the most extraordinary life that you can imagine. Because doing that not only serves you, but it serves everyone you love and care about, because you’re setting an example. You’re giving them permission, whether consciously or unconsciously, to do the same. Lead by example. Fulfill your potential. Enjoy every moment. Love the life you have. But go out there and go for your dreams and create the most extraordinary life that you can imagine, because you deserve really nothing less. The people that know you and that love you and look up to you deserve nothing less from you.
Jay: So good. That’s so inspirational. Thanks so much, Hal. Where’s the best place that people out here can find you at?
Hal: MiracleMorning.com is the website for all things Miracle Morning. Of course, if you want to buy the book, it’s on Amazon. It’s on iBooks. It’s on Audible, Kindle, all that stuff. MiracleMorning.com. Then, if you want, we have a lot of people now that come to our events from all over the world. We do a live event every December called Best Year Ever Blueprint. It’s unlike any event I’ve ever seen, and I go to a lot of them. It’s experiential. It’s not where you’re sitting. Most events you go to and it’s information overload and you’re taking pages and pages of notes. Then you go home and you’ve got 10 pages of notes and no time to read them, let alone implement them.
Our events, my business partner’s actually the genius that facilitates this. But he’s a master in experiential learning science. Instead of going there and just learning what to do, you actually do it while you’re there. For example, we teach you how to form a mastermind. You don’t just go home with notes on how to form a mastermind. We actually break you into groups and you would actually form and execute and facilitate a mastermind while you’re there. Now when you go home you’re ready to form your mastermind and you totally know how to do it because you’ve experienced it, not written about it. Everything that we do at the event is that way. We share it with you briefly, and then we get offstage.
Imagine an event where there’s nobody on stage 80 percent of the time, because you’re doing the stuff that we just taught you. We don’t need to sit up there and talk at you for two days. We’ll share with you, “Hey, 20 minutes, here’s how you do it. Grab a partner and then engage.” Anyway. BestYearEverLive.com is that. We have people come from Asia, Australia, Japan. Someone signed up yesterday from French Polynesia. I don’t even know where that is.
Jay: Wow. Best Year Ever Live?
Hal: Live. Yeah. BestYearEverLive.com. I say this jokingly but also true. Scroll down and watch. There’s a three-minute video toward the top of the website, just down a little bit. I always say it jokingly, you’ll know with three minutes whether or not you want to stay away from the event, because it’s a little too high energy and emotional for you. If you’re like, “Oh, wow. That looks transformative. I want to be there.” You’ll know very quickly.
Jay: That’s great. That’s great. Awesome, man. Listen, thanks so much for your time, man. I really enjoyed our conversation today. You’re just so inspirational and I love your story. The Miracle Morning, obviously I practice that as well. Thank you so much. We look forward to getting you out here. That’s what I’m going to work for.
Hal: I appreciate that, Jay. Thank you for having me. Everyone that tuned in and listened, I really, I do appreciate your time. It means a lot to me. Hope you got some value and hope you’ll start practicing the Miracle Morning tomorrow morning. Set your alarm clock back 30 to 60 minutes, and don’t wait till you get it figured out perfectly. Just wake up a little bit earlier and read or exercise or do one of the SAVERS. That’s my challenge and my invitation for you.
Jay: Awesome. Great. Thanks so much for your time, Hal. Really appreciate it.
Hal: All right, Jay. Take care, buddy.
Jay: All right.
Hal: Bye bye.
