When Nick Santonastasso was born, he was given a 30% chance of surviving birth. One of only 12 people in the world born with Hanhart Syndrome – an extremely rare genetic disorder that caused Nick to be born with no legs, only one arm, and one finger. Growing up was hard, and Nick found himself self-loathing and thinking about ending his life.

However, more than just surviving, Nick found his WHY when he became a high school wrestler and professional bodybuilder. Now, he is sharing his experience with people all over the world as a keynote speaker at schools, non-profits, as well as Fortune 500 companies. He can even count Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Tony Robbins among his admirers.

I’m meeting Nick for the very first time today on the podcast. He shares stories of how he overcame his limitations to achieve everything he’s ever wanted, so that you can do the same.

You’ll hear about what he did to survive the darkest years of his life, and how he’s built a truly extraordinary career out of using challenges to inspire people to push through their suffering and live life without limitations - just like he does.

Conversations are at the core of how we interact. We all know that conversations influence us, but we rarely stop to think about how much impact they have on our well-being and our ability to thrive.

How effective would you say that you are at having conversations that significantly and positively impact the lives of the people on the other side of those conversations?

Jackie Stavros is the author of Conversations Worth Having: Using Appreciative Inquiry to Fuel Productive and Meaningful Engagement, in which she teaches us how we can communicate better and flourish in all areas of our lives.

When Jon Berghoff started the Flourishing Leadership Institute, he asked Dr. David Cooperrider for help. David’s response? "You need to talk to Jackie. She is a pioneer in the methodology of the work that I do." Jackie has since become a close mentor to Jon, a dear friend, and extraordinary at helping individuals and organizations to upgrade the conversations that they’re having.

A well-respected expert in her field, Anna David is a New York Times bestselling author of two novels and four nonfiction books about addiction, recovery, and relationships.

She has appeared on the Today Show, Dr. Drew, CBS Morning, and Insider. She’s been published in the New York Times, TIME, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, and has been written about in Forbes, Martha Stewart Living, Entrepreneur, Allure, and Women’s Health, among many others.

Most recently, Anna and I co-authored the newest book in the Miracle Morning series, The Miracle Morning for Addiction Recovery: Letting Go of Who You've Been for Who You Can Become, along with Joe Polish - founder of Genius Recovery.

During today’s conversation, here is a sneak-peek at what you’ll hear:

  • About my own drug addiction in my 20s, which I’ve never spoken about publicly – until now.
  • Why addiction is our #1 health crisis today - and the major misconceptions surrounding addicts (including the fact that an “addiction” can be much more than just drugs or alcohol).
  • Anna’s story of how she developed an addiction to cocaine, alcohol, and Ambien, discovered the nature of her addiction while in rehab, and stayed sober after one unsuccessful experiment 18 years ago.
  • The #1 most common trait that all addicts have in common.
  • How you can help people currently struggling with addiction - and the importance of treating people with compassion instead of judgement.
  • And much more…

Matt Recore (or “Matty” as I call him) is one of my best friends in the world. We met in 1999, our connection was instant, and we stayed up talking like schoolgirls until three o’clock in the morning. :^D

Since then, we’ve developed an extraordinary friendship. He was a groomsman in my wedding, I became an ordained reverend to perform his and his wife’s marriage ceremony, he was by my side in both hospitals, during my car accident and my cancer journey, and we both happen to be mildly obsessed UFC fans. :^)

Matt was also always financially ahead of everyone else I knew. He became a millionaire and figured out how to build wealth at a young age, and has kept it going—and growing—ever since. Everyone wants to achieve financial freedom to live the life they want, and today Matt joins the podcast to share not just how he did it, but how you can do the same.

He also introduces his new book, How to Purchase Real Estate at 0% Interest: To Help Sellers Get What They Want and To Accumulate Paid Off Houses Faster For Your Retirement, in which he shares stories of how he exploded his net worth.

Like many of you, I first discovered Mel Robbins through her TED Talk, How To Stop Screwing Yourself Over. Though it has over 14 million views, it’s just one of her major successes. She is also the author of The Five Second Rule, one of the most-read books of 2017 and an all-time best-seller on Audible, where she also now hosts Kick Ass with Mel Robbins.

Today, Mel tells her story – how she became the Mel Robbins – in a candid conversation about her life, family, parents, values, and what made her who she is.

A few years ago, I was invited to speak at an event for the non-profit One Life Fully Lived. While I was there, I saw David Osborn speak for the first time, and I was captivated by his rare blend of authenticity, transparency, expertise, and contribution.

He shared his story of transforming from a troubled youth into a self-made millionaire, showing us where every dollar came from as he amassed a fortune worth over $70 million. I’d met a few other millionaires, but none at that level - and few who were willing to openly share the real secrets to their success in a sincere effort to help others.

You may have seen my email on Monday announcing that David and I co-authored a new book, Miracle Morning Millionaires: What the Wealthy Do Before 8 AM That Will Make You Rich.

On today’s podcast episode, David shares his story, his background, and gets you inside the mind of someone who has achieved the financial freedom we'd all love to have. No matter who you are or what your personal income level is, you’re sure to benefit from his knowledge and insight.

Over her 40+ year career, Linda Smith has reached the summit of the legal profession. She’s litigated on behalf of IBM and Intel, and dealt with male egos as big as Michael Dell’s and Mick Jagger’s without ever breaking a stride.

Linda is also a blogger and author at MeanestWomanAlive.com. She writes about confronting gender stereotypes, self-sabotage, alpha males, and how to seize and hold on to leadership positions. She believes that women should abandon the societal norms dictated by men and use their own playbook - as well as uniquely feminine advantages - to dominate in business.

Today, Linda joins the podcast to discuss that playbook, Smashing Glass and Kicking Ass: Lessons from the Meanest Woman Alive. We talk about why a lack of women in leadership roles holds both women and great companies back, the potentially traumatic experiences that helped Linda become who she is today, and what “mean” really means.

From the moment I first heard Rob Actis’ voice in an audition, I knew that he would be the voice of The Miracle Morning audiobook series. As he was recording the first book, he started doing his SAVERS, stopped sleeping in until noon, and, amazingly, discovered that he was narrating a book that was changing his life in real-time.

Rob decided at the age of 4 that he wanted to speak to the world. 54 years later, he’s a radio personality, commercial voice actor, and the leader of a new movement getting people motivated to take action in their lives.

Today, Rob joins the podcast to discuss his new (and first) book, The Law of Action: Gain Perfect Clarity, Boost Your Confidence and Get More Results NOW. We talk about facing your fears head-on, what’s really going on when we procrastinate, and how to get unstuck when you’re in the planning stage - and truly transform your life.

Benjamin Hardy has been the #1 writer on Medium.com since 2016. He writes about self-improvement, motivation, learning, and entrepreneurship, organically receives over 1,000 new email subscribers daily, and works to help his readers live in alignment with their highest values and visions.

Last month, Benjamin sent me a copy of his new book, Willpower Doesn’t Work: Discover the Hidden Keys to Success. I started reading it immediately and was hooked. It’s phenomenal. Challenging everything we’ve been taught about what it takes to improve our lives, ourselves, and achieve our goals (hint: it’s not willpower), Benjamin enlightens us with a new paradigm that I believe is revolutionary in personal development.

Today, he joins the podcast to talk about the book, what it means to be 100% committed to anything you truly want to achieve, and the power of shaping your environment. If you’ve ever set goals and fallen short of them, this is a must-listen.

When I was diagnosed with cancer, someone I had admired for years reached out and selflessly offered to help me navigate my cancer journey. Expert internet marketer and recent stage 3 colorectal cancer survivor Mike Koenigs felt it was his duty to help in any way he possibly could, and this belief is the foundation of his success in the business world.

Mike is a 13-time #1 bestselling author, speaker, active online personality, and entertainer with over 54,000 customers in 121 countries. He put together some of the biggest sales in online history - and has never stopped authentically reinventing himself.

Today, Mike joins the podcast to discuss the dangers of overworking, the power of showing vulnerability in your business, and his upcoming Promote & Profit event, taking place this May 7-9 in San Diego, CA.

AND… I’ll be speaking on the 9th, so I’d love to meet you there! :^)

For 11 ½ years, Jordan Harbinger hosted The Art of Charm. With over 4 million monthly downloads, it was one of the most successful podcasts in the world. However, an amicable split between Jordan and his partners became less than amicable, and with the rug swept out from under him, he had to rebuild from nothing.

Jordan has since launched The Jordan Harbinger Show, and has quickly created an even better podcast - and one that does incredible numbers. In just a matter of months, he’s already received over 3 million downloads and over 1,000 reviews.

Today, Jordan joins the podcast to talk about how devastated he initially was, how he bounced back, the ways helping others can lead to unexpected successes, and why it’s so crucial that every minute of his podcast is worth his listeners’ time.

After retiring at age 40, Tim Rhode became the creative force behind 1lifefullylived.org—a non-profit that helps people master their lives, so together WE can change the world.

He is also the co-founder of GoBundance, which is a tribe for healthy, wealthy, generous men who choose to lead epic lives.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Tim now for quite a few years, and I can truly say, he’s one of the most positive, uplifting and generous people I’ve ever met.

Although Tim barely graduated high school and never attended any college, he went on to create the life of his dreams. After a very humble beginning (he was a grocery clerk until 25) Tim went on to build a real estate empire, which has afforded him the opportunity to retire at the early age of 40.

Today, Tim shares the story of how he created financially freedom and the steps you can take to do the same!

In October of 2016, I woke up in the middle of the night, struggling to breathe. Days later, I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia—a very rare and aggressive form of cancer—with a survival rate of 30%. I was told that I had a matter of days to start chemotherapy, or I would die.

I took a somewhat unique approach to beating cancer that combined the best of Western medicine with holistic practices to detoxify my body as the chemo wreaked havoc upon it. Not only did I survive, but I experienced less side effects than most cancer patients.

Today, I’m doing my first solo episode, in a very long time, to tell my story and present the Miracle Equation that helped save my life. Whether you know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, you yourself have been diagnosed with cancer, or you simply want to minimize your risk of ever getting cancer, this episode is for you.

Today I got together with my long-time friend, Carey Smolensky, to discuss an important topic that I don’t often talk about – happiness. Carey wanted to know where it sits in relation to passion and the way I live my life, and it was a joy to explore.

Carey has also been helping to produce spectacular live events for years, including our annual Best Year Ever Blueprint, and after years of us twisting his arm he’s finally producing his own first major event—The Passion Summit—in Chicago on May 7th and 8th.

At The Passion Summit, I will be presenting a brand new keynote—titled What Matters Most?—and helping to answer this universal question that we don’t typically ask. (If you’re interested in attending The Passion Summit, click here to register. Use the code YOPALVIP to save up to $350.)

But before that, I think you’ll really enjoy today’s conversation about Happiness & Fulfillment.

For the last two years, I’ve become a huge fan of Aubrey Marcus – podcast host, author, and the founder and CEO of Onnit, the leading supplement company for human optimization.

Within the first few minutes of hearing Aubrey’s podcast (two years ago) I felt an instant connection with him as a deeply thoughtful, highly evolved, and exceptionally brilliant individual – one who I could learn A LOT from – and I think you will too.

Aubrey recently released the book Own The Day, Own Your Life (available now for pre-order) - his personal manual for getting the most out of your body and mind on a daily basis. I’m about halfway through the book now, and I made significant changes to my daily routine – after reading just the first few chapters.

Today, Aubrey joins me on the podcast to talk about his book, how to flip the script when the voice in your head is telling you not to do something that’s good for you, and how we can set ourselves up for success in a world that doesn’t always have our health and well-being in mind.

After many years earning 22 times the national average income, Jayson Gaignard realized that he wasn’t 22 times happier, so he decided to walk away. He felt stuck on the entrepreneurial hamster wheel, building a business he hated to buy things he didn’t need, to impress people he didn’t necessarily like. While he looked highly successful on the outside, he was completely bankrupt on the inside.

Fast forward to today, and Jayson’s life is virtually unrecognizable from what it was only a few short years ago...

Praised by Forbes as a “Networker to Watch” in 2015 and Founder of one of the top events in the world for entrepreneurs — MastermindTalks — which has featured world-renowned entrepreneurs such as Tim Ferriss, Gary Vaynerchuk, James Altucher, Guy Kawasaki, and hundreds more.

Today, Jayson joins the podcast to share stories about recovering from his personal rock bottom, along with his strategies for building a community that makes a meaningful impact.

You’ll also learn why the right combination of ignorance, confidence, and hard work can help you achieve your biggest goals!

There’s always someone to thank and appreciate. So why don’t we tell people what they mean to us more often? Why do we let excuses like — “I’m too busy” or “What difference will it make?” — get in the way of showing our appreciation to the people who bring value to our lives?

John Israel, Founder of the Mr. Thank You Project, joins the podcast to share his mission—to elevate the level of gratitude on the planet by inspiring 74 million Thank You cards. He kicked it off by writing five (5) Thank You cards every day for an entire year, which even got him featured on ABC News!

When Community is given a transcendent purpose, it becomes one of the fastest ways for members of that community to come alive as individuals.

That’s what you’ll quickly discover from today’s discussion. Only a few weeks ago, we wrapped up the 4th annual BYEB, which brought together 400 people from 16 different countries around the world. 

Today, Jon Berghoff jumps on the mic to reflect on some of the most memorable moments from the event and speaks from his heart about the power of community.

Have you ever wondered how some people are always able to stay relaxed under pressure, no matter what gets thrown at them? Or why some leaders always seem to be able to develop highly productive teams that achieve huge things in the face of uncertainty?

These aren’t qualities only a select few people are born with… they’re skills that you can learn. And, they are the same skills that today’s guests, Betsy Crouch and Zoe Galvez, teach people around world, using improv comedy!

I’m a believer in the “ripple effect”... the idea that one lesson or moment in life can spark something that will change you and the world in bigger ways than you can imagine.

And recently, I sat down with Rob Dial (one of my first coaching clients) to share the lessons that have had this effect on my own life and personal development.

We talk about the lessons that have helped me stay positive in the middle of life’s biggest challenges (including my most recent battle with cancer) and how to apply them to yours.

As the founder of the Flourishing Leadership Institute, one aspect of Jon Berghoff’s job is to use visualization as a tool to create high impact solutions for organizations seeking revolutionary change.

Why that is important for you today is that these same principles can be applied on an individual level to completely shift how you think about achieving success in your own life.  

The conversation you’re about to hear (which originally aired on Rob Dial’s MWF Motivation Podcast) is a sneak peek into just how powerful visualization can be on achieving your goals.

Jon Berghoff will be teaching these visualization methodologies next month at this year’s Best Year Ever Blueprint [LIVE] experience. Click here to find out how you can join us and learn from Jon in-person!

What kind of future would give YOU the greatest sense of pride, meaning and fulfillment?

We know that when we connect with our strengths, we perform at a much higher level. Yet, far too often, we look at what’s wrong, what’s broken and what’s missing as a way to solve our problems and find fulfillment in our lives.

What if instead, we looked at where we’ve been at our best—and then determined the factors that led to that success by asking better questions. Questions that would not only help us find deeper meaning in our own lives, but would create a shared sense of purpose in the lives of others.

That’s what you’re going to learn about today. In fact, we’re doing something a little different. We’re going to be replaying a recent conversation between Jon Berghoff and host of The Millionaire Mindcast podcast, Matty Aitchison. When I heard this discussion, I knew I had to share it with our community, as it’s loaded with insight!

Jon also reminds us that as a leader, you not only need to build the habit and practice of asking great questions, but you also have to build the habit of allowing yourself to not get attached to your first answer. Don’t be afraid to let your answers evolve!

In this discussion, he will also share the big lessons from his book Living Life with PASSION and Helping Others, including how to shift your mindset so you can find deeper meaning and purpose in both your personal and professional life.

Nobody succeeds alone. That’s the simple, yet very important takeaway from today’s conversation.

When I was young, I didn’t believe I needed anybody’s help. I wanted to prove to the world that my success was mine—that I had made it completely on my own. Well, as you can probably imagine, that didn’t work out so well!

Luckily, I started to recognize the power of relationships and how building a support system of likeminded and like-hearted individuals would not only catapult the success of my business endeavors, but would also bring a completely different level of joy and fulfillment into my life.   

20 years later, I’m fortunate to be surrounded by an incredibly talented group of friends. Together we have empowered each other to succeed well beyond what we ever dreamed possible.

In today’s roundtable discussion, 5 best friends—myself, Jon Berghoff (co-creator of the Best Year Ever Blueprint LIVE Experience), Jon Vroman (founder of Front Row Foundation), John Ruhlin (author of Giftology), and John Kane (record-setting endurance athlete)—revisit the biggest lessons from two decades of supporting each other.  

You’ll see that we have a lot of fun reliving past stories, sharing meaningful moments, and discussing the values and philosophies that have shaped our lives.

You’ll also hear why the Front Row Foundation (think make-a-wish meets Tony Robbins) is the glue that keeps us all connected and how the values behind the organization are fully aligned with the way we are living and succeeding together!  

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Leveraging the power of HUMOR in the midst of adversity—What Hal’s battle with cancer can teach us about making the most out of difficult situations.
  • Why nobody succeeds on their own—You’ll hear how a willingness to serve and support one another allowed 5 friends to succeed beyond their wildest dreams.
  • The not-so-obvious benefits that are hidden in your relationships—5 best friends express their gratitude and describe how the culture of one company brought them together.
  • Find out what the Front Row Foundation means to each of us and how an organization that started off as a way to help people fight life threatening illnesses, has grown into a way of living!
  • Jon Berghoff also shares an incredibly touching story of Front Row recipient, Sophie, and the moment she got to meet Kelly Clarkson—this story will really help you appreciate how precious YOUR life truly is!
  • Big lessons from Jon Vroman’s book—The Front Row Factor: Transform Your Life with the Art of Moment Making—including how to become a moment maker for the people you love and care about the most.
  • Why a partnership was born between the Best Year Ever [Blueprint] and the Front Row Foundation and why it’s giving BYEB attendees a higher sense of purpose.
  • And much more…

Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why people (i.e. you and me) tend to work hard to accumulate stuff that we don’t really need?

Today’s conversation with Drew Canole will open your eyes to another way of thinking, being, and living. At one point, Drew was chasing everything for all the wrong reasons. The money, the stylish car, the big house and the fancy clothes — all of his goals were being driven by external factors. His fleeting approach to life lacked purpose and left him completely unfulfilled, unhappy, and 40lbs overweight.

Today, Drew Canole is a rockstar in the world of fitness, nutrition, and mindset. As the Founder and CEO of Fitlife.TV, a bestselling author and the creator of Organifi, he is helping millions of people around the world to transform their lives.

By the way, although Drew is a leading influencer in the world of fitness, this discussion is not just about taking care of your physical health. In fact, Jon and Drew actually talk a lot more about strategies for managing your inner mental game, so you can further succeed in business and life. You'll recognize quickly that Drew wears his heart on his sleeve and the passion he has for helping others is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Drew brings so much value on the topics of mindset, finding purpose, and achieving your goals that we decided to cut this one into 2 parts so you can absorb it all without missing a thing!

Last week, I released Part 1 of a musical conversation between Brotha James (aka my good friend, Jeremy Reisig) and Jon Berghoff. They shared some fascinating never-before-told stories and jammed out to a few of my favorite songs, including “Grateful” and “The Front Row Anthem.”

Today we release Part 2, and you’ll hear the debut of the brand new Miracle Morning song!

The power of music is undeniable, but Brotha James, takes it to a whole new level by combining music with positive affirmations.

His mission is to spread love and joy through music, messages, and inspirational living, and that’s why I invite Brotha James to perform at all of our live events.

Of all of the Brotha James songs, I think #3 may be my favorite. But then again, I may be a little biased ;^)

KEY TAKEAWAYS

During Part 2 of this musical conversation, you’ll get to experience 3 more inspiring Brotha James songs:

  • Song/Message #1: “Slow Down”—Far too often, we feel the need to move faster, especially when we look at what others are doing. This song is all about slowing things down and appreciating the little things in life that keep us grounded.
  • Song/Message #2: “Abracadabra”—A lot of us associate the word ‘abracadabra’ with magic. This song is about the magic you can create in your own life. It’s about deciding that you can do anything you want to do, if you’re willing to go for it.
  • Song/Message #3: “Miracle Morning”—Brotha James once asked me “Hal, what is a miracle morning?” My response was simple… “It’s any time you wake up before you have to and do something that empowers you to become the best version of yourself.” That’s what this song is all about.

What if you could listen to music every day that not only sounded great, but the lyrics actually programmed your subconscious mind so that you automatically felt happier, more grateful, and even more motivated?  

You’re about to meet the man Brotha James (Real Name: Jeremy Reisig), who has dedicated his life to creating “Music with a Message.”

He is a musician, speaker and entrepreneur, who is on a mission to spread love and joy through music, messages, and inspirational living. His positive energy is contagious and his enthusiasm for creating, playing and performing helps him engage audiences of all ages.

In this 2-part rhythmic conversation, join two of my greatest friends, Jon Berghoff and Brotha James as they jam out to 6 different songs, each with a meaningful message that will help you to become the best version of yourself and start living life to the fullest.

What I absolutely love about Brotha James is that every single lyric he writes, is written with purpose and his message to all audiences is the same: be a dreamer, be animalistic in pursuit of those dreams, be good to yourself and others, and be grateful.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

During Part 1 of this conversation, you’ll get to experience 2 of my favorite Brotha James songs:

  • Song/Message #1: “Gratitude”—Instead of focusing on the negative, learn how to reprogram your mind to see gratitude all around you and use it to propel your life forward.
  • Song/Message #2: “Living In the Front Row”—What can you learn from your Front Row experiences? Reflect on your front row moments, write them down and see how that feeling transforms your life.

Plus, you'll also get to hear:

  • The story of how Jon Berghoff and Brotha James met.
  • How to change lives with the power of positivity and random acts of kindness.
  • And so much more…

Do you regularly spend time with people who are challenging you to set bigger goals, and helping you to achieve your goals?

Our ability to achieve our goals can be greatly influenced by the people we spend the most time with. Not only can they push us to succeed, but they can also help us define what that success looks like.

If you’re like most, financial freedom is an important goal. But what else do you value? What about contribution, health, family, accountability, or even bucket-list adventures?

In today’s conversation, Jon Berghoff talks with Mike McCarthy in his home in Colorado to discuss what it takes to live your truth and grab life big.

Mike is a serial entrepreneur and co-founder and CEO of GoBundance, an Adventure Masterminding group of hard charging entrepreneurs who want to lead epic lives!

He also happens to be the co-author of The Miracle Morning for Parents and Families, co-creator of GratefulParent.com, and is the Regional Owner for the Keller Williams Realty Greater Pennsylvania Region, which covers Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Southern New Jersey.  

What I love most about this episode, is how Mike includes his family in achieving his goals. He doesn’t let the fact that he’s got kids—or anything else in his life—hold him back from grabbing life big, and neither should you!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • A new mindset about “Grabbing Life Big!” that will help you to achieve your goals.
  • The GoBundance tribe’s 6 pillars of strength and what they can teach you about prioritizing what matters most.
  • Why you don’t have to give up on your goals and dreams, just because you have children.
  • Adapting the Miracle Morning routine for you and your children.
  • How a Spirit Coach helped Mike tap into his most authentic self, uncover his biggest strengths, and access a deeper wisdom he never knew he had.
  • A really fun exercise to overcome the FEAR of being rejected.
  • And much more…

When we accept life before it happens, we get to keep the power that adversity will try to take away from us. We get to control the narrative. Instead of focusing on “why me?”, we can instead choose how we give meaning to something. In other words, adversity doesn’t hurt you, it serves you!

Which is what you learned in Part 1 of “Beating Cancer: A Dialogue On Converting Adversity into Advantage”. If you haven’t heard it, I encourage you to go back and check it out!

In Part 2, we continue the conversation and dive deep into what matters the most. I break down the most profound lessons learned since being diagnosed with cancer, including the 3 factors (Perspective, Love & Gratitude, and Freedom) that have completely transformed the way I now see the world.

This conversation actually may surprise a lot of listeners. You’ll hear that before being diagnosed with cancer, I never truly believed I was deserving of my success. Today I not only explain why, but I share the affirmation that’s shifting my mindset!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Learn how perspective can determine your attitude, and therefore the quality of your life.  
  • How to turn emotional pain and negativity into love and gratitude that serves you unconditionally.
  • Transform your relationships and your business, through the act of selflessly giving.
  • The single most important way to achieve ultimate freedom in your life. HINT: It doesn’t matter how much money you have, this is something you can take action on today!

As many of you  know, shortly after I was diagnosed with cancer in November, my good friend and co-creator of the Best Year Ever Blueprint, Jon Berghoff, stepped up and has been leading the Achieve Your Goals podcast ever since so I can focus on healing. (THANK YOU!!)

Although cancer wasn’t my conscious choice, I do believe that I am 100% responsible for choosing how I respond to it. By choosing to accept what I can’t change, be grateful for all that I have, and finding/creating meaning & purpose from what might otherwise be a negative experience, I’m finding once again that every adversity holds within it a profound, life-transforming advantage.

This mindset applies to all of us. We all face adversity, and it is up to us to decide what meaning we give to it, and what purpose it serves for ourselves, our loved ones, and the greater good.

That’s what this 2 part dialogue between Jon and myself is going to cover. It’s not about what’s going wrong, but rather, actively asking ourselves what we can learn from these experiences and how we can use them to our advantage.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The “Can’t Change It” mantra that will help you turn any adversity into purpose that serves the world.
  • Learn the powerful daily affirmation that gives Hal direction when the meaning isn’t clear.
  • How to win in business & life by throwing out the “master plan” and focusing on adding value.
  • Why overnight success is a myth! Jon and Hal recount the failed businesses that led to their “overnight success.”
  • Hear about Hal’s risky heart procedure, holistic Cancer treatments vs. Chemotherapy, and how he’s detoxifying his body with… wait for it… coffee enema’s!
  • Hal reveals his most profound realization since being diagnosed with Cancer and how it’s helping him win the fight!

I never used to think I was a “salesperson” until I realized we are all born with the ability to sell, and selling is a skill that benefits all of us. Think about it...

In today’s conversation, Karen shares her story and breaks down the framework that led to creating an exceptionally successful business, based on—you got it—selling.

This discussion will highlight some of the most important habits you can implement to achieve success at the highest level. If you’re an entrepreneur, you'll especially appreciate the simple, yet effective sales principles that Karen outlines for generating leads, tracking results, overcoming rejection and ultimately growing your business.

On this episode of the AYG podcast, Jon Berghoff outlines 5 factors for expanding your personal potential!

At the beginning of the show, Jon looks back and smiles about his early days living with Hal. When they weren’t pulling pranks and playing Jet Moto, they were challenging each other’s ability to succeed. It was no coincidence that out of thousands of of sales reps, two people who lived in the same apartment became #1 and #2 for their company. The powerful and positive behaviors that were established were a direct result of living together in the same environment.

Jon’s stories ultimately lead to a challenge for you to take a look at your own environment. Not just in the sense of how being around others can affect your behavior, but also how your physical environment can affect your spiritual energy. What’s distracting you or causing you to lose focus? What’s cluttering up your life? What subtle adjustments can you make to your physical environment that will allow you to be more in control of each and every day?

Jon goes on to share the additional factors he’s learned from Hal and many other thought leaders on how to reinvent and re-wire your personal potential. He talks about improving your well being through movement and nutrition, using the concept of the Hero’s Journey to gain perspective, and the benefits of having a formal meditation practice.

The factors outlined in today’s episode are just a handful of the things that can take your potential to the next level. And the best part… you can start taking action on all of them today!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • [06:30] Find out how your environment can impact your behavior.
  • [10:30] Why you don’t want to become a Jack of all trades, master of none.
  • [12:40] The power of physical environment and understanding the spiritual energy that comes from clutter.
  • [15:04] Improving your physical well being through movement and nutrition.
  • [23:54] How to use the concept of The Hero’s Journey to pursue your call to adventure, overcome obstacles, and transform your life for the better.

  • [43:00] Jon gives you today’s 5th and final factor, but decides to save the bulk of this topic for a future episode :)

The Miracle Morning

Michael Isom

Let’s talk about coloring books. Yes, coloring books!

Coloring books are not only for kids, it’s also ideal for adult too. The science behind them is incredible. People are using them for mindfulness and visualization.

Today’s guest is a friend of mine, Brianna Greenspan. Briana has to overcome the physical challenges of being born with a chronic invisible illness. She has been using the power of positive affirmation for the past 10 years. From back and neck braces, surgeries and numerous doctor visits to competing her first 10k, hiking Half Dome Yosemite National Park, Brianna is a living proof that the power of positive affirmation can really overcome anything that’s holding you back!

Brianna brought about the idea to incorporate the powerful affirmations from The Miracle Morning Book into a coloring book!

Each page is an affirmation that someone can color; the act of coloring helps your mind program the affirmation subconsciously. The coloring book has an adult section and a kids section so families can do this together!

In this episode, you will…

  • Get to know Brianna and hear her incredible story
  • Realize that obstacles should not hinder you in achieving your goals
  • Discover the power of affirmation through The Art of Affirmation Coloring Book
  • Find out about the benefits of coloring books
  • Learn how coloring books are popular in the corporate world

You can now get a copy of the first ever Miracle Morning coloring book, The Art of Affirmations: A Positive Coloring Book for Adults & Kids

Do you find it hard to sit still and relax? Do you feel lazy and guilty if you aren’t constantly working through a to-do list? Perhaps your issues are just the opposite. Maybe inaction is your problem. Do you love options but can’t decide? Do you find it hard to stand up for yourself? Do you constantly doubt your decisions?

Stereotypically, the first camp is associated with masculinity, whereas the second camp is more often associated with femininity. The traditional views of what makes up the two are very black and white.

Men are assumed to be masculine and women are assumed to be feminine, but are these stereotypes actually true?

You’re not going to want to miss this interview with Mimi Ikonn. She finally wrote the book her 2.8 MILLION YouTube channel subscribers have been begging her to write, and they’ve been begging because they want to know the answers to all the questions you’re asking yourself as well right now.

Mimi shares how both men and women can tap into the next level of their potential by harnessing The Bingo Theory…and, whaddya know? That’s also the title of her book!

In this episode, you will…

  • Discover whether you have a masculine or feminine energy
  • Learn how to connect with your feminine energy, even if masculinity predominates
  • Hear tips for balancing your conflicting energies
  • Understand why the starting point for balanced relationships is having a relationship with yourself
  • Uncover how you can tap into your energy potential using The Bingo Theory

Tune in to learn what The Bingo Theory is, and how understanding it can help you lead a more balanced life and attract your perfect complement!

If you (or someone you know) are ready to be happier, this episode may be finding it's way to you at just the right time.

It also happens to be the first episode ​where ​I've ​ever​ actually​ read a letter to you, word-for-word. Please allow me to explain...

As I was ​preparing ​for ​my next live coaching session on "HOLISTIC HAPPINESS" for the Best Year Ever Coaching program, I came across an article I wrote in 2008 for B​liss​ Magazine, "How to Choose Happiness.​"

T​he article (and this podcast episode) is​ based ​on a letter I received from Katie, a woman who was feeling hopeless, telling me about her depression and why she ​simply ​can't be happy.​

In today's podcast episode, y​ou'll​ ​he​ar​​​ me read Katie's letter, followed by ​my response, and then her final​, unexpected, and ​truly inspiring ​conclusion, about how applying the advice ​in my letter completely shifted her perspective, opened her eyes to new possibilities​,​ and enabled her to immediately begin to transcend her depression. 

I​ sincerely​ hope this ​episode ​​makes a profound impact for you, or someone you know​, the way that it did for Katie​.

How about a little quiz? Don’t worry, it’s only one question—Do you control your ego, or does your ego control you?

Many of us have been taught to regard the idea of ego with suspicion and judgment. We hear that ego is synonymous with selfishness and try to do whatever we can to get away from it. The truth is, the ego is an integral part of your being, and an important ingredient to designing a healthy, balanced life. The trick is just to be in control of it, rather than letting it guide your life.

If at the core of your actions is a desire to help others and add value to their lives regardless of your own benefit, but you understand the need to also make a living, you probably have a pretty healthy ego. On the other hand, if at the core of your actions is a desire to get noticed, to receive accolades, and to be remembered, then your ego is probably getting a little ahead of you. No need to worry, though – there is hope for us all!

In this episode, you will…

  • Learn how to transform purpose into profit
  • Understand how to go from ego-driven to purpose-driven for a happier, more successful life!
  • Discover the distinction between mission and purpose and why you need them both
  • Determine whether or not your mission and purpose are aligned for success
  • Hear how to re-engineer your ego to have a more meaningful life

I had to go on an ego-balancing journey myself, and I’m here to tell you that after reducing ego, I began to experience more happiness, fulfillment, and success than ever before, because my goals were more than just “me”-centered pursuits. If I can make the change, so can you!

Tune in!

Friends, today’s episode is a conversation with one of my best friends, John Ruhlin, and I’m grateful to be able to share his story, and his strategies for “Radical Generosity” with you.

This guy has taught me so much about appreciating others, personally and professionally, and his new book Giftology (and our podcast interview) give you the shortcut to gaining the wisdom that has taken him 20+ years to acquire.

Publications like Forbes and INC Magazine have deemed him the world’s leading expert in a topic that we can all learn more about – “Appreciation.”

You may not have even known that there was a study of gift-giving – What’s there to study anyway, right?

Giving gifts has become so automated in our culture that we have to remind ourselves to actually put thought into them, and even when we do, the thoughts often end up being more about ourselves than the recipient – we’re good people, so what gives?? Like everything else in our lives, learning to give personalized, thoughtful gifts, is a practice, and you won’t want to miss John’s masterful insights about it.

In this episode, you will…

  • Realize why giving things away is the best way to ‘get’ what you seek!
  • Understand how to make gifts about the recipient, rather than yourself
  • Learn about radical generosity and how to incorporate it into your life and business!
  • Hear how gift giving allows you to become a fixture in the recipient’s mind
  • Discover the amazing difference it makes in your life to show gratitude, often

Tune in to learn how thoughtful giving can begin transforming your life, and the lives of the people you begin giving to.

It is generally agreed upon that entrepreneurship is the engine that drives an economy upwards and is primarily responsible for its growth.

However, one need not start one’s own business in order to be an entrepreneur. You can be entrepreneurial within a company setting (often called “intrapreneurs”) and you can lead from anywhere you happen to be positioned.

Our guest today is Bob Burg, the bestselling author of one of my favorite books, The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea. He is an advocate for, as well as supporter and defender of, the Free Enterprise system. He believes that the amount of money one makes is directly proportional to how many people one serves.

Bob is committed to inspiring the entrepreneurial spirit in all of us.

In today’s podcast, you’ll discover:

  • Why you needn’t be an entrepreneur… to be entrepreneurial.
  • Five Laws that will bring you both personal effectiveness and professional success.
  • Why asking if something will make money isn’t a bad question…it’s just a bad “first question.”
  • One thing to absolutely AVOID doing when seeking out a mentor.
  • Why being a “Go-Giver” is absolutely congruent with human nature.

Tune in and go give ‘em!

The moment you’ve been waiting for is here! Peter Diamandis and Tony Robbins together on the same stage, sharing their insights on life, happiness, and success. You won’t want to miss this interview, so tune in!

In this episode, you will…

  • Get the morning routines that set Tony and Peter up for success
  • Hear Peter share what’s possible when you go 10x’s instead of 10% bigger!
  • Understand that, although the brain is wired for survival, you can train it to seek happiness
  • Discover how to alter your perception of tribulation and use your experience to help others
  • Realize that, if you don’t make time for yourself, you don’t have a life

As humans, we’re programmed to expect suffering, and we learn to seek out stress, but it’s possible for you to develop habits and make lifestyle choices that help to rewire those instincts. No matter how much money you make or how much success you have, there’s no immunity from pain. It’s what you do with the pain and how you use it to help others that sets you apart. As Tony said, “You become something unique when you find a way to grow and you find a way to give.”

Today's podcast episode is something I'm beyond excited to share with y'all! (Note: I just moved to Austin, Texas last week so I'm practicing my "y'alls" to fit in a little better with the locals :^)
 
Seriously though, this episode may be THE single most important podcast I've ever recorded, because of the implications for all of us (individually) AND for the global impact that this could ultimately make for millions (possibly billions) of people. 
 
I mean we're literally talking about elevating the consciousness of the human race! 
 
Today my business partner and one of my best friends (yes, we're BFFs) Jon Berghoff and I finally reveal the LIVE experience that will bring together the world's most dedicated Miracle Morning practitioners for the first ever "Miracle Morning Mastery & Co-Creation Experience!" 
 
This is the first opportunity in history to both experience "Miracle Morning Mastery" (which will be led by myself, Jon Berghoff, and a team of world renowned experts in each of the SAVERS) while working together to literally create the future of the Miracle Morning Movement and how we will collectively impact billions of people around the world. 
 
To our knowledge, there is nothing quite like this experience that has ever been offered, and definitely not for The Miracle Morning Community!

This is a very unique episode of the Achieve Your Goals podcast, in that it was originally scheduled as a call that UJ Ramdas (creator of the 5-Minute Journal and the Productivity Planner) set up with me, to simply pick my brain on the topic of “Affirmations.”

Right before our call, I asked UJ, “Hey, do you want to do this on Skype so we can record it and make it a podcast episode for the Achieve Your Goals listeners?”

He was all for it, so what you’re about to hear is simply a conversation – a “Fireside Chat” – between two friends, who happen to enjoy geeking out on all things personal development.

In this episode, you will…

  • Learn the importance of affirmation
  • Discover how to assess what you have achieved using affirmations
  • Get to know the affirming words, phrases and statements that work
  • Find out what your affirmation is
  • Learn how to identify your Priority and Smart Goal

Regardless of your field, one of the most important skill sets to master is knowing how to effectively connect with, communicate with, and influence your clients. The formula I rely on for this – whether I’m selling, writing, or developing a podcast – is the Context Creation formula. This episode will give you the elements you’ll need to implement this strategy in your life immediately.

It’s changed a little bit over the years but I’ve narrowed the Context Creation formula to five major components:

1. ACK – Acknowledge Your Audience

2. ETW – Enter Their World

3. ENR – Enroll Your Audience

4. WIIFT – What’s In It For Them?

5. ETR + BVA – Earn The Right + Be Vulnerable and Authentic

ACK + ETW + ENR + WIIFT + [ETR+BVA] = Context Creation

COMMENT QUESTION: What is your big takeaway?. Write it in the comments below.

Sep 9, 2015

While growing up, we’re often told that the sky is the limit and we’re encouraged to dream big . . . but how big is too big? When your goals are too large, it’s easy to become discouraged when you don’t achieve the impossible. Join entrepreneurs Hal Elrod and Nick Palkowski as they discuss ways to make sure that your goals are measurable and, most importantly, achievable.

Being successful goes beyond simply visualizing what you want and attracting it to your life. Being overconfident only hurts you in the end when the reality does not meet your expectations. This is not to say that you cannot achieve great things; you can! It just might take longer than you might expect and the road might be a bit bumpy on the road to success. In this episode, Hal shares three strategies to help you to create smaller, measurable, and achievable goals.

  1. You’ve got to earn the right to set bigger goals by achieving smaller ones.
  2. Break down bigger goals into three smaller goals.
  3. Extend your time frame.
 

A good reference text to see if your goal is to big is to look back at what you’ve already achieved. If your goal is more than two times larger than your prior achievements, you may want to evaluate your goals. Remember that even elite entrepreneurs fail all the time; failure is a huge part of the game! Being an entrepreneur is all about learning, changing, and adjusting to anything life throws your way.

“Every single one of us, at some level, has a responsibility to take our knowledge, our life experiences and transform them into a book that could help an infinite amount of people.”

Have you ever read a book, one that inspired you or that you couldn’t put down, and thought “I wish I could do that”?  Well you can.  More importantly, you SHOULD!

Whether you believe you’re an expert or not, everyone can benefit from writing their own book.  In this episode, I share how I decided to write my first two books, and discuss the three big reasons why everyone should do the same: personal branding, income, and legacy.  You can be an entrepreneur, an employee, or even a stay-at-home spouse; find out how you can benefit from writing a book.  I even give you some basic tips for how to get started.

 

Everyone has a story to share or advice to give; it’s time to get yours out to the people who need it!  Writing your own book is a short term commitment that will generate benefits for the rest of your life (and beyond!).  Now start writing!

“A book pays you for a lifetime in terms of benefits.”

Join co-creator of the Best Year Ever Blueprint,  John Berghoff, and Hal Elrod as they discuss the strategies used by the masterful and wildly entertaining Conor McGregor.

After leaving his job as a plumber in Dublin, Ireland, Conor made mixed martial arts training his sole focus, making his dream of being the UFC champion a reality.

Whether you’re an MMA fighter or a business owner, these strategies can help you to achieve your goals. When things are going well, it’s easy to imagine your goals and dreams within your reach.

One of the best ways to become the best possible version of yourself is through being coached by a high quality mentor. It’s the secret weapon of the elite. This indispensable, but elusive tool was once a privilege only few could afford, but with Tony Stubblemine’s launch of Coach.me, immediate and affordable coaching is available to aid you in achieving any goal. Join host Hal Elrod as he and his guest, Tony Stubblemine, debunk the myth of overnight success and discuss the importance of quality coaching.

Tony will be the first to tell you that it was by working hard and working smart that he got to where he is today. But before taking up running in high school, he was convinced he was lazy. Not until he realized that he ran more miles over the summer than anyone else on his high school team did he see that he wasn’t lazy, he just needed to be passionate in order to apply himself.

After a record breaking senior year of high school, Tony decided to run at Grinnell College, a Division III school in Iowa. With each injury that he encountered, he couldn’t understand why he wasn’t getting faster. After looking back at his running career, he realized that he had stopped doing the strength exercises that had once been a focus of his during his high school years.

To know true success, the secret isn’t hard work; it’s working smarter. One of the best ways to ensure that you are working towards your goals in an effective and efficient way is by doing the following:

  1. Write your ideal plan and decide everything in advance to avoid making emotional decisions
  2. First, focus on the habit. Then, focus on growing.
  3. Make sure that the first thing you do in the morning is something fun that makes you want to get out of bed

By starting your morning off right, you set yourself in motion for the rest of the day. While Coach.me can be used in conjunction with The Miracle Morning, it has helped people to lose weight, quit drinking, become more productive, and even meditating. Rather than see any set back as a failure, Tony encourages you to change your perspective. Failure only happens when your expectations do not match your goals. Instead, view your failures as an opportunity to reset and repeat and you’ll achieve your goal in no time.

When asked to list their top fears, most people list public speaking first and death second. As Jerry Seinfeld once said, this means that if you’re at a funeral, you’d rather be in the casket than giving the eulogy. Face your fear and cultivate your skills with Hal Elrod as he interviews Jon Berghoff on how public speaking can help you to influence, inspire, and communicate to large groups and in personal interactions.

One of the most important keys in speaking effectively to an audience, no matter how large or small, is understanding the importance of context over content. You might have a very well-written speech, but if you aren’t aware of where your audience is coming from, it will fall on deaf ears. Jon gives his Context Creation Formula to help you in creating an effective framework.

If you ask them, most audiences will know a good speaker from a bad one. But what are the qualities of a good speaker and how can you develop them yourself? Jon and Hal each share their top three tips to help you on your public speaking journey:

  1. Empathetic
  2. An ability to inspire
  3. Self-awareness and presence
  4. Vulnerability
  5. Storytelling
  6. Entertaining

Never underestimate the power of preparation and always remember that, even though the spotlight is on you, public speaking is ultimately about the audience and their experience. Join Jon Berghoff and Jon Vroman at their Speaker Trainer Experience event to learn more about delivering exceptional speeches and how to distinguish between speaking and training.

One of the saddest things in life is to realize you could have been, done, and had so much more… and do nothing about it.” 

Don’t allow yourself to put off achieving your goals. One of the most destructive forces preventing people from getting the results they want is procrastination. Join Hal Elrod and Nick Palkowski as they share strategies to avoid procrastination entirely and to stop procrastination in its tracks. 

  1. Identify areas and  activities you are procrastinating and ask yourself: what is it costing you? 
  2. Ask yourself why you are procrastinating.
  3. Clarify the next 3 steps in each area and know your goals
  4. Prioritize and schedule those steps into your schedule
  5. Act without thinking

 

 

Challenge yourself to a 30 day no procrastination challenge. Choose just one area to focus on, identify the next three steps you need to get closer to your goal, and implement those steps in your schedule. Don’t allow yourself to stop and consider the reasons to procrastinate and follow through on what you promised yourself you would do. 

“Extraordinary results are born from extraordinary clarity.”

As someone who has made and lost millions, authored international best-selling books, and hosts a top podcast, investor and serial entrepreneur James Altucher knows a thing or two about getting results and the failures that happen along the way.  Join host Hal Elrod as he interviews James in his unique process for achieving goals and overall self-improvement.

 

Rather than having specific goals in mind, James sets out to make himself 1% better in four separate areas: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Centered around the idea of self-respect, James has lifted himself up by following his daily practice any time he’s hit rock bottom. 

 

By improving himself through his daily practice, James is able to focus and take control of his life to achieve results through 

 

Sleep, diet, and movement

Avoid spending time with people you don't like

Aim to be creative everyday

Be grateful for what you have
