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.

Mike is an extraordinarily successful serial entrepreneur who has earned tens of millions of dollars and worked with clients such as Tony Robbins, Paula Abdul, and Richard Dreyfuss. But in his early 50s, Mike felt purposeless, suicidal, and broke.

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.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The foundational beliefs and values that will help you overcome any situation, no matter how difficult.
  • The importance of working through your childhood trauma and unresolved issues.
  • How Dan Sullivan’s advice helped him rediscover his purpose, get out of his massive $2 million debt, and build a thriving business.
  • Why being honest and vulnerable isn’t a weakness; it’s your superpower.
  • The next time you feel like life’s too much, be kind to yourself instead of judging your emotions.
  • How meditating for three days straight helped Mike realize he could reinvent himself and create value for people in the process.
  • You’ll also learn Mike’s 6-step framework for personally and professionally reinventing yourself, regardless of age.

Mindy also has a new book coming out, Fast Like a Girl, which has addresses the differences between how men and women should approach fasting, which we also touched on today.

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.

Thankfully, Jon Vroman started Front Row Dads—a community for family men with businesses, not businessmen with families. Without exaggerating, my involvement with Front Row Dads has become the biggest factor contributing to my progress in becoming a better husband and father.

Joining me on this special bonus episode of the podcast is none other than Jon Vroman and our great friend, Justin Donald. We’re talking about what it means to be the Dad and Husband your family deserves, what each of us is excelling at AND struggling with when it comes to our own families.

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.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What does it mean to be a Front Row Dad?
  • How to develop a better relationship with your kids through quarterly (or even monthly) one-on-one’s.
  • Making plans that speak your spouse’s love language.
  • Why a YES to somebody else, is by default, a NO to your family.
  • Why getting together with like-minded Dads can completely transform your life at home.
  • The value of spending time with AND without your family.
  • A simple change I made to make my daughter go from being annoyed by me to feeling totally connected and wanting to spend time with me.

Do you ever struggle with your level of motivation? If so, you’re in good company as even highly successful people struggle to maintain consistent motivation.

You’ll also learn how to hold yourself accountable to follow through on your goals and how you can apply these principles to be successful in every aspect of your life.

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.
  • How Steve helps prison inmates turn illegal hustles into productive businesses.

In today’s fast-paced world, I think it’s safe to say that most of us feel like there's not enough time in the day to get everything done that we need to get done—let alone find time for the things we want to be doing.

What if I told you that, with just a few tweaks to your current schedule, you could be more productive and experience greater fulfillment than ever before?

Today’s guest has helped millions realize that taking control of your time is not only doable, it’s simple. Laura Vanderkam is one of the world’s leading experts on time management and the author of seven (7) time management and productivity books, including her newest book, Tranquility by Tuesday: 9 Ways to Calm the Chaos and Make Time for What Matters. Her incredible TED talk on time management has over 20 million views and her work has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and Fortune.

Today, we’ll dig into the most common reasons why people struggle with time management and the nine (9) strategies that will help you take control of your time and build the life you want.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why life hacks that “save you time” are a lost cause, and why filling up your schedule with things that light up your soul is a better alternative.
  • The number one reason most people struggle with time management.
  • Laura’s nine (9) habits for mastering time management.
  • Why Friday is the perfect day for planning your upcoming week.
  • Perfection is the enemy of progress. Ditch the all-or-nothing mentality and give yourself permission to slip up once in a while.

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.

My guest today (one of the most fascinating individuals I have ever interviewed) has achieved goals beyond what most of us would even consider attempting (!) and is living proof that no dream is too big, and nothing is impossible.

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.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How Ben overcame crippling depression to pursue the life of his dreams.

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.

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!

And if you don’t think you have time to cook and eat a healthy diet, or that eating organic foods is too expensive, that’s totally understandable. But I want to give you the opportunity to learn how some simple dietary changes can make a huge difference in your life.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why it’s probably cheaper to eat organic than you think.
  • What makes it so hard to manage our energy levels over the course of a day.
  • Why so many doctors don’t take nutrition seriously–and how this can lead to serious health consequences.
  • How people have used their nutrition as part of a plan to reverse diabetes, bring cancer into remission, and maintain better overall health.

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.

  • 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.

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.

If you've been paying attention to the news lately, you know that the cost of pretty much everything is on the rise. Food, housing, gas, utilities, and other goods rose by 9.1% over the past 12 months—a 40-year high!

Most people can barely sustain the life that they have, let alone make enough money to live the life of their dreams.

And while it's natural to feel scared during these times, I want to ease your mind and help you prepare for whatever the future may hold.

Today's episode is all about money. I want to teach you how to make more of it, not only to keep up with rising inflation, but so you can create freedom and start living life on your terms. 

Whether you're struggling to keep up and need to earn more OR want to protect yourself if things go sideways, this episode highlights many helpful strategies for making more money and building multiple income streams!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why wanting to make more money isn’t going to make you more money.
  • How to make more money by changing jobs or careers–or simply asking for a raise.
  • How I lost half my income during the Great Recession in 2008 and grew my business to 6-figures and eventually 7-figures.
  • How I took the leap from a 6-year career to becoming an entrepreneur, found my first clients, and grew my first business on my terms.
  • The benefits of creating multiple sources of income and some ideas on how to get things started.

I recently came across an eye-opening, insightful passage by an unknown author. In it, the writer talked about what purpose really is in a way I had never quite heard before. I shared it across social media and people expressed that it really resonated with them.

So, today I want to share that passage with you. Then, I want to help you explore different ways to look at your purpose in life. You’ll hear insights from thought leaders including Eckhart Tolle and Matthew Kelly, and others.

My conclusion is that we have the ability to choose or create a purpose that makes sense for our life, to change our purpose at any time, and to live in alignment with it at all times.

In this episode, you’ll learn how to define, simplify, and live for your purpose like never before.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why we create—rather than find—our purpose in life.
  • How our search for purpose can lead us in pursuit of love, spirituality, success, contribution and so many other valuable aspirations.
  • Why purpose, values, and guiding principles are all interrelated.
  • Simple things you can do to share your gifts, live in alignment with your purpose, and help others.
  • How to define (and redefine) your purpose.

How does it make you feel when people you know—whether it’s your family, friends, co-workers, or acquaintances on social media—have opposing views on topics that are important to you?

I recently made a post on social media that prompted a lot of critical feedback, and those comments inspired today’s episode.

Having disagreements with coworkers, clients, friends, and especially family members can be frustrating. But how do we interact with those we disagree with? Do we choose to judge, condemn, and perpetuate polarization, or do we choose to respect each other’s opinions, and come from a place of love and understanding.

In the spirit of helping heal humanity, empathizing, loving each other, and better understanding each other, I want to talk to you about three (3) considerations to help you get along with people you disagree with. I also want to respond to some of the feedback I received from that social media post, then discuss what we can do to get along better with everyone—no matter how different they may be.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What it really means when an intelligent person thinks the exact opposite way that you do on a topic.
  • How to keep an open mind, learn what someone else thinks and feels, and grow and evolve with them.
  • How learning someone’s perspective gives you the key to unconditional empathy and love for all people.
  • What happened when I shared a post by an alternative doctor on Facebook–and how my own experience prompted me to share that message with my audience.
  • How to transcend toxic tribalism and ideology and work to become a beacon of peace, empathy, and understanding.

Today’s episode was inspired by a message I received from a listener. They told me that they’d made some bad choices in the past, don’t trust themselves anymore, and asked if I would do an episode on how we can develop our self-confidence, or get it back when we’ve lost it. 

The reality is, even very confident people struggle with self-confidence at times, or in certain areas of their life. So, how do we go about increasing our self-confidence?

With that thought in mind, today’s episode dives into this topic from a number of different angles. You’ll learn what self-confidence is, where it comes from, how to develop and increase it, and how to get it back if you lose it.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why self-confidence is not black or white–but it is an attitude and a mindset about your worth and your abilities. 
  • Why everyone is a work in progress–and how sensitivity to criticism, fear of failure, and lack of support can hurt your self-confidence.
  • Why no one’s born with self-confidence–and where it really comes from.
  • How commitment, mental conditioning, progress, and results bolster our self-confidence.
  • How I regained my self-confidence after the techniques I’d used to build my business and achieve success stopped working in 2008.
  • Three steps you can take right now to start developing and increasing your self-confidence.

Sometimes “How’s life?” can be one of the most challenging questions to give a straight answer to. It’s like, Uhh, which part of life are you referring to?

When life is difficult, are you able to stay on track, keep sight of your goals, and keep your priorities in order? Or do all the things that are bringing you down leave you feeling exhausted, stressed out, and discouraged?

It’s easy to feel like what used to work isn’t working anymore, or you don’t have the support you need, and that we’re constantly playing catch-up with a world that won’t stop changing. However, you can still optimize and take control of your own life—and it may just be the push you need to stay on track.

Today, I want to talk to you about how to take action when life feels challenging. You’ll learn some simple ideas to help you tune out the noise, get back to basics, and understand why it’s more important than ever to keep pursuing your goals, no matter what the future holds.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why it’s so important to optimize what you (and only you) can control when life sucks.
  • The difference between willful and automatic thinking.
  • How to get in touch with how you’re currently feeling and maximize the value of your emotions.
  • How fear of the unknown and paralysis by analysis stop us from doing our best work.
  • Why now’s the time to create a vision for your happy, healthy, financially secure future.

If you were to lose half or more of your income in the next few months, what would you do?

I ask you this question because that’s exactly what happened to me during the Great Recession of 2008, and many financial experts are forecasting that the next recession could be right around the corner.

Today, I want to share with you the four (4) things I did in 2008 to turn my financial situation around and literally double my income (in only two months) at the height of the Great Recession, so you can be prepared to do the same.

In today’s podcast, I want to share the story of my financial journey. Then, I want to present four strategies you can use to thrive during a recession, what I’m doing now to prepare for a potential economic downturn, and how you can use these same techniques to thrive no matter what happens!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How a listener’s critical comment inspired me to record today’s episode.
  • My financial journey from painting decks at 9 years old to becoming a full-time entrepreneur.
  • Why it took me many years to establish a meaningful passive income—and the experiences that taught me the value of thinking outside the box.
  • Why my coaching business fell apart in the wake of the Great Recession and led me to the concepts and ideas behind the Miracle Morning.
  • The ONE question I asked in 2008 that I’m asking again now.
  • How optimizing your mindset, learning new strategies, asking for help, and getting creative can help you establish new sources of income, even during a major economic recession.
