We humans are facing many daunting challenges that sometimes make it difficult to find hope in the world today. But as circumstances get tougher, the need for each of us to step up as leaders, who embody the best human qualities, is greater than ever.

You might be thinking, “I’m not cut out to be a leader” but the reality is that everyone who influences another person—whether at home, at work, or in relationships with loved ones— is a leader. And that’s what we’re discussing in today’s episode—how you can show up at your best, for those you love and those you lead.

Today I start by sharing and expanding on an excerpt from the powerful Who Do We Choose To Be by Margaret J. Wheatley. You’ll learn how anyone can choose to be a leader through acts of courage, compassion, and love.

In combination with Margaret Wheatley’s expertise, I’m sharing insights that will help you determine where you can step up as a leader and the mindset that will allow you to show up at your best, even in times of uncertainty and chaos.

KEY LEARNINGS:

  • To change the world, you need to change yourself first.
  • Leadership doesn’t have to be global. You can lead through many small and thoughtful acts each day.
  • How focusing on what you excel at makes you a better leader.
  • If you’re influencing other people, you’re a leader.
  • The power of defining your vision of the type of leader you want to be.
  • Why great leaders focus only on the things they can control.
  • The importance of being grateful despite your difficult circumstances.

Are you the type of person that is afraid to take chances in life due to self-doubt and fear of rejection or embarrassment? Self-doubt and fear of failure can be paralyzing at times, but I’ve found that breakthroughs happen when you take risks and put yourself out there.

On that note, today’s episode is a special one. I’m sharing the potential preface to the Updated & Expanded version of The Miracle Morning book coming out in September. It includes a story I’ve never told before and the risk I took that led to an incredible breakthrough.

You’ll also get a peek behind the curtain of the development of the Miracle Morning Movie, why I decided to go through with the movie during the hardest days of my battle with cancer, and I also share the key lesson I learned from this experience and how you can use it to reach your own breakthroughs.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How mustering up the courage to meet one of my favorite authors turned into something beyond what I could have ever imagined!
  • The power of breaking through your fears and creating your own luck.
  • How Robert Kiyosaki, Mel Robbins, and Robin Sharma came to be in the Miracle Morning movie.
  • The #1 lesson I learned from today’s stories and how you can apply it to your life.

Do you ever struggle with changing your habits and behaviors? Today’s guest believes that lifestyle changes don’t have to be unpleasant and that you can even make them fun and enjoyable.

In our conversation, we discuss the strategy for making lasting behavior changes in a fun and enjoyable way. You’ll learn how to rewire your beliefs to get better results and the power of incremental improvements each day instead of overhauling your entire lifestyle on day one.

Whether you are married or not, in today’s episode I’m sharing the #1 (most effective) strategy I’ve used for transforming and optimizing any important relationship in your life. 

Relationships aren’t linear. They have highs and lows, and it takes consistent work to make them thrive. 2016 was easily the most difficult year for Ursula and I. We were constantly fighting, I was losing hope, and I knew I had to do something significant, or our relationship may not have survived.

Today, I’ll share the number one change I made that has transformed my marriage. Not only did it help save it, but it keeps evolving and improving each year. And the best part is that you can apply this framework to any relationship in your life that matters.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The one commitment you can make today that will transform your marriage.
  • The importance of commitment in everything you do in life.
  • How going through adversity together helps strengthen your marriage.
  • How you respond to difficult circumstances in life is a choice. Why not choose patience and empathy instead of anger?
  • The power of focusing only on the things you can control.
  • It only takes one person to transform a marriage or relationship.

Have you ever felt lost, depressed, scared, or unsure of what to do with your life? My guest today, Mike Koenigs, will show you that there is always a way to reimagine and reinvent yourself, no matter how overwhelmed you may feel.

In today’s conversation, Mike shares how he came to understand that our beliefs are what prevent us from accessing our power to change our circumstances, and he teaches us how our beliefs determine our happiness and purpose in life. Now, just a few years later, he’s happier and healthier than ever, runs a multimillion-dollar business and helps other entrepreneurs rediscover their purpose and find their next act in life.

I used to be the guy who said “family is my #1 priority” and yet, my schedule often told a completely different story. I was a workaholic, and I was in denial.

We also talk about the upcoming Front Row Dads Live Summit, which is bringing 100+ men together from around the world to increase awareness, build brotherhood and ignite action to be better fathers and husbands. I’ll be speaking at the event, and I hope you’ll join us on December 2-4 in Austin, TX! Visit FrontRowDads.com/Live and use the discount code HAL for 10% off your ticket price.

How much more effective could you be at creating everything you want for your life if you had a detailed (aka “vivid”) vision of where you’re going? Without a clear vision, it’s easy for us to get pulled in different directions and end up arriving somewhere less than ideal.

That’s why I’m excited to talk to my friend, Cameron Herold. Cameron is the co-author of The Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs, founder of the COO Alliance and author of Vivid Vision: A Remarkable Tool For Aligning Your Business Around a Shared Vision of the Future. Cameron's the guy to talk to if you want to gain exceptional clarity in your life (or business) to make your goals a reality.

In our conversation, you’ll learn Cameron’s strategy for creating a Vivid Vision for your life, why setting bigger goals motivates you to achieve them, and the habits that make top performers successful.

You’ll also hear Cameron talk about his experience living with monks, what he learned from working with Elon Musk’s brother, Kimbal, and how to put yourself in a peak emotional, physical, and spiritual state so you can improve your life and the lives of those around you.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What living in a monastery taught Cameron about being present and living a spiritually rich life.
  • Stop waiting for motivation to arrive! Learn how bigger goals can fuel you to achieve what you thought was impossible.
  • Why you should enjoy the process instead of always worrying about the outcomes.
  • The greatest obstacles that prevent people from achieving their goals.
  • The importance of surrounding yourself with smart people that will hold you accountable and push you forward.
  • Top performers know when it’s time to take action to achieve their goals. Others search for the magic bullet.
  • The importance of anticipating setbacks and only focusing on things you can control.
  • Perfection is the enemy of progress. Be kind to yourself when you slip up, and do better tomorrow.

We’ve talked A LOT about inner freedom over the past couple of years, and specifically how you can gain the freedom to choose how you feel and how you experience every moment of your life—regardless of your circumstances.

Choosing to maintain a state of authentic GRATITUDE can be one of the most beneficial states of consciousness we can choose—especially when we’re enduring difficult times—and yet that’s also when maintaining that state is most challenging. Enter today’s guest.

Few people know this better than Louie Schwartzberg. Louie grew up with parents who were Holocaust survivors, and he learned the power of gratitude from a young age.

Louie is an award-winning cinematographer, director, producer, and visual artist who tells stories that celebrate life. He's also produced three TED talks that have over 60 million combined views. His newest film, Gratitude Revealed, is a beautiful homage to gratitude and how it improves our lives – both as individuals and as a community.

In today’s conversation, we discuss why it's crucial to be grateful when times are tough and how to do it, why suffering leads to growth, and Louie’s strategies for practicing gratitude in every moment.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How Louie learned gratitude from his Holocaust survivor parents and how that inspired him to tell stories about adversity and gratitude through photography and filmmaking.
  • The importance of being grateful not just when things are great but also when things feel terrible.
  • Stop taking everything for granted. You can be grateful even for the small, mundane things that happen to you daily.
  • Gratitude is a muscle, and it will get stronger with practice.
  • Why being kind is always better than being right.
  • How to sprinkle gratefulness throughout your daily existence to break the pattern of negative thinking and rumination.

If you had a chance to learn how to set major goals from the man who sent clients to the wreck of the Titanic, arranged for people to get married by the Pope in the Vatican, and set up a private dinner at the feet of Michelangelo’s David (statue) while being serenaded by Andrea Bocelli, would you seize it?

You are about to get that opportunity! My guest today, Steve Sims, has done things that seem like they’ve been ripped out of a Hollywood movie script. Forbes and Entrepreneur magazine have even called him “The Real Wizard of Oz.” 

Steve is an example that you don’t need to be afraid to dream big and that nothing is impossible. Fear of failure is a self-fulfilling prophecy, and you need to eradicate those thoughts from your mind to achieve your most cherished goals.

In today’s conversation, we discussed the importance of thinking big, taking massive action and why you should embrace failure to get to success.

We also discuss Steve’s latest book Go For Stupid: The Art of Achieving Ridiculous Goals and his strategy for developing an unbeatable mindset that will make it possible to turn your dreams into a reality.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The strategy that helped Steve go from being a nightclub doorman to doing business with Elon Musk, Sir Elton John, Sir Richard Branson, and many more.
  • Why most people are scared to chase their deepest passions and Steve’s method for overcoming that problem.
  • How to forget the word “impossible” and go after ridiculous, stupid goals!
  • If you act boldly, chances are you’ll fail. But you have to get comfortable with failure to reach success.

Are you a fan of stand-up comedy? What I love about today’s guest is that he uses his comedy to bring people together, rather than divide them.

You’ll also hear the inspiring story of how he persisted to make his dream of being a stand-up comedian come true, which shows us all how we can do the same to achieve our dreams.

Brent Pella is a successful stand-up comedian and a cast member on Nick Cannon’s VH1 show Wild N’ Out. Brent’s comedy sketches, parody videos, and celebrity impressions have more than 200 million views online.

In this episode, we discuss how he made a name for himself by never giving up on his dreams, the mindset that will make you better at any craft, and the relationship between comedy and spirituality.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The advice that Andy Samberg gave Brent that made him a better comedian.
  • How being persistent in his goals got Brent from working in Cheesecake Factory to being a part of Hollywood music video sets and VH1 shows.
  • The creative process that allows Brent to consistently produce content loved by millions worldwide.
  • How an Eminem parody video led to a call from Nick Cannon and a role on his Wild N’ Out show.
  • Why anyone (not just comedians) should be OK with sucking at their craft in the beginning.

Ben is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want To Do Before You Die and his brand new book/journal, the Bucket List Journal. In today’s conversation, we discuss the power of having a bucket list and actionable strategies for accomplishing things you thought were impossible.

A couple of weeks ago, I shared one of the most impactful interviews I’ve ever done, as a guest on Cathy Heller’s podcast, Don't Keep Your Day Job. The response from our community was so overwhelmingly positive, that I invited Cathy to be a guest on my podcast. If you've yet to hear that episode, titled “A Fresh Perspective on The Miracle Morning,” you can listen to it here.

In today’s episode, Cathy and I have a fun, enlightening discussion about a variety of topics that affects all of us at some point. The one that stood out to me was our discussion about “Overcoming Imposter Syndrome.” If you’ve ever felt like you weren’t special, worthy, deserving, or capable of creating everything you want for your life, this episode is for you.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The biggest thing that holds people back from taking steps toward the life they desire.
  • Actionable steps to rewire your brain and progress towards something that scares you.
  • The most important ingredients to transcending imposter syndrome so you can live a life you love.
  • Why being caring, authentic, and vulnerable is much more important than trying to impress people.
  • How selflessly creating value in other people’s lives gives you the power to overcome imposter syndrome.
  • A powerful story of how Howard Schultz went from living in Brooklyn public housing to growing Starbucks into a multi-billion dollar business.

Do you love what you do for a living? Or do you find yourself feeling unfulfilled and wishing you were doing something else? A global poll conducted by Gallup sheds a disturbing light on this topic:

“With only 21% of employees engaged at work and 33% of employees thriving in their overall wellbeing, most would say that they don't find their work meaningful, don't think their lives are going well or don't feel hopeful about their future.

According to that same report, stress among workers is also at an all-time high. Surprisingly, people are feeling even more stressed than they did in 2020! So, why do so many people stick with jobs that they hate? And what can someone do if they want to get paid to do something that they love?

To help answer these questions, I’m talking with my good friends Tim Rhode and Pat Hiban. Their new book is called The Quitters Manifesto: Quit a Job You Hate for the Work You Love. In it, they explore why so many people feel trapped in their jobs but don’t know how to escape. The book will help you craft a game plan to survive uncertainty, create new opportunities, and make meaningful change. (If you’d like to get a copy, click here and use the code “ELROD” at checkout for 10% off.)

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why Tim and Pat quit jobs that didn’t serve them—and what happened next.
  • How to determine when it’s time to quit your job, and how to manage any fear and uncertainty you feel.
  • Why your worst-case scenario is never a downgrade from where you are right now.
  • How to build a “quit team'' to help you navigate career transitions gracefully.
  • Ways you can internalize your plan to quit into your daily practice—including your Miracle Morning.

Today's episode format is very different, in that this is an interview that I just did on the top-rated Don’t Keep Your Day Job podcast, where Cathy Heller interviewed me. Cathy has interviewed major names such as Tony Robbins, Alicia Silverstone, Andy Grammer, Mel Robbins, Gabby Bernstein, and Matthew McConaughey, to name a few.

This was one of the best interviews I've ever done and quite different from how I normally talk about The Miracle Morning, so I want to share it with you!

Here's a comment from someone who already had a chance to listen to this interview:

Diana Kates - Wow!!! Thank you for sharing. This was one of the most impactful interviews that I have ever witnessed. 🙏🏼

In our conversation, I’ll dive deep into how to make meditation, visualization, and affirmations a meaningful part of your daily practice, and how we can all work together to transform the world.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How I transformed my life by getting over my fears and giving Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, a copy of The Miracle Morning
  • What the art of visualization is–and isn’t–and why it’s so different from something like The Secret.
  • Why affirmations are the most misunderstood, underutilized, and effective form of personal development.
  • How the 5-Minute Rule helped me to accept, experience inner peace, and ultimately recover after major traumas in my life, and how you can do the same.
  • And much more!

Procrastination is something we all struggle with, and it prevents us from achieving our goals and dreams. If you’re a human being, I know you can relate! We all put off things we know we need to do, no matter how important they are.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why procrastination is a perpetual mindset that can entrap us for days, months, or years.
  • Why fear, lack of clarity, and lack of energy drive us to procrastinate.
  • Why we almost always want to do what’s easy—and how procrastination can lead you into a perpetual cycle of self-defeat.
  • How to understand and make sense of your fears, get clarity over your mission, get energized, and reorient your life around your goals.

How consistent are you when it comes to doing what you need to do to achieve your goals? Be honest with yourself! 

If you feel like you’re not as consistent as you want or need to be, that’s okay. Consistency is something even high achievers struggle to maintain, and there’s nothing wrong with needing help in this area. 

In today’s episode, inspired by a survey I sent to the Miracle Morning community, I want to talk to you about what you can do to set yourself up for success and improve your follow-through. 

You’ll learn four time-tested and proven techniques you can apply to any goal, how to hold yourself accountable, and what you can do right now to transform your life and bring about meaningful change. 

During today’s conversation, we dive into how to implement the following four (4) Steps to Improve Your Consistency: 

  • Step 1: Identify your goal. Determine what you’re working towards and clarify whether the activities are more important than the outcomes.
  • Step 2: Identify your bad habits. Cut out the ones that are detrimental to your goals and consider trying a 30-day challenge in 10-day phases to break your addictions.
  • Step 3: Identify beneficial habits you need to integrate into your life. Get clear on the WHY that drives your behavioral change.
  • Step 4: Establish a system to ensure you follow through. Choose between five different options and levels of accountability.
