I’m not sure if our world has ever been this divided. From my vantage point, I’ve never seen so much judgement, condemnation, hatred, and vitriol toward one another, especially between people of different belief systems. 

The reality is that we’re all human beings. We’re all part of the human family, and no matter how our beliefs might differ from one another, we’re all a lot more alike than we are different. We all want to be happy, to be healthy, to have freedom, to feel safe, and to feel respected.

Inspired by a Facebook Live session I did last week, today’s episode is about the consequences of judging and condemning others, the power of unconditional love (and why it’s not the same thing as tolerating harmful or abusive behavior), and how this radical gesture has the power to help us heal the world.

During today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • The consequences of judging others based on your own life experiences.
  • Why human beings have so much more in common than we do differences.
  • How unconditional love can heal the world, beginning with healing yourself. 
  • How do you love someone who has wronged you? 
  • Trading in your judgement for empathy.
  • The difference between blame and responsibility. 
  • What it means to be part of a human family.
  • Why putting labels on people makes it impossible to appreciate, respect, or love them.

What does it mean to achieve financial freedom? Is it being able to provide for our families and not worry about making our next rent or mortgage payment? Is it having sources of passive income that pay the bills whether you work or not ? Is it the ability to focus solely on what you want to do in life, as opposed to what you need to do?

If you’re Justin Donald, it’s all of the above. In addition to being a personal friend of mine for over a decade, Justin is the author of the new book, The Lifestyle Investor: The 10 Commandments of Cash Flow Investing for Passive Income and Financial Freedom, where he introduces readers to a paradigm-shifting mindset when it comes to earning money. He empowers people to stop thinking that money can only come from stress, toil, and time, and shares strategies and principles designed to create real, tangible passive cash flow streams.

If you value building, growing, and protecting your wealth, today’s episode is for you. Justin isn’t just sharing his philosophy when it comes to money, but real-world advice that you can immediately implement to improve your financial situation.

During today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How lifestyle investing uses money as a vehicle for freedom.
  • The steps Justin took while working full-time to create passive income streams.
  • How Justin chooses and structures investments to maximize returns and minimize risk.
  • Why anyone can become a lifestyle investor.
  • The traditional investment advice that Justin finds risky.

Jan 6, 2021

For every single one of us, 2020 was a year unlike any other in history. For many, it was arguably the most difficult year of their lives. For some, it was a great year. My question for all of us to consider is, what determines whether a year is good or bad? 

On last week’s podcast, I shared an unconventional approach to making 2021 your best year yet. I talked about why having a good year or a bad year has less to do with your results and more to do with how you choose to show up and experience each day. In other words, if you commit to show up at your best each day, regardless of your results, wouldn’t that be the recipe to creating your best year ever?

Well, this week, we’re focusing on more of the tangible side of things — the specific goals and measurable outcomes that you want to achieve in your life.

You’re going to hear how to apply the Miracle Equation to your life in 2021, in order to move your biggest goals from possible, to probable, to inevitable and to create results beyond what you’ve ever imagined possible.

Today, you’ll learn the 5-steps to Achieve Your Biggest Goals and Dreams:

  • Step 1: Accept and Love Your Life Unconditionally
  • Step 2: Redefine the Purpose of Your Goals
  • Step 3: Maintain Unwavering Faith
  • Step 4: Put Forth Extraordinary Effort
  • Step 5: Maintain the Miracle Equation Until the Last Possible Moment

Dec 30, 2020

What a year 2020 has been for all of us. No one could have predicted what was to come, and while I’ve heard from people that this was either their best or worst year ever, almost all of us have faced unprecedented challenges, adversity, and even opportunities along the way.

As we leave this year behind, on today’s podcast I’m inviting you to consider entering into 2021 with an unconventional paradigm—that creating the best year of your life has less to do with what you accomplish (your results) or what happens to/for you (your circumstance), and everything to do with how you choose to show up and experience each day. 

I’m also going to give you some strategies that you can immediately begin implementing to make 2021 your best year yet.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why having a good year or a bad year has less to do with your results and more to do with how you show up every day.
  • How a difficult year (see 2020) can give you everything you need to become the person that you need to be to create everything else you want in life. 
  • How to get clarity and set goals in eight different areas.
  • The value of unwavering faith and resilience. 
  • The power of support and accountability networks - and how to find (or create) one.

Dec 23, 2020

Today’s episode is a continuation from last week’s Freedom From Fear (Part 1). If you missed that episode, I highly recommend you click here to go back and listen to it before digging into this one. I talked about what fear is and why it is natural, what causes both conscious and unconscious fears, how fear can become incredibly destructive to your mental and emotional well-being as well as your goals, and how you can begin to gain control of your fears and experience true freedom.  

This week, we’re exploring what happens when you live in a perpetual state of fear - and why you don’t have to. You’ll learn how fear can make you a better person, practices you can use to overcome emotional states that are holding you back, and what you can do to live a life of joy and gratitude.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why fear disappears when you actually encounter the things you were afraid of for so long. 
  • Why you can’t just snap your fingers and get over your fears. 
  • How to use two affirmations to replace fear with unwavering faith – even in the face of the things you fear the most.  
  • Three (3) strategies you can use when you experience fear. 
  • How to cater emotional optimization meditation (EOM) as a part of your daily practice for transcending fear.

We’re all afraid of different things. It’s a natural part of the human experience. In fact, fear is what helps to protect us. However, fear can also become destructive and detrimental to our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. 

Right now, there’s a global collective fear of the unknown like never before, as well as our individual fears (both conscious and unconscious) that we each need to examine, understand, and free ourselves from.

Today’s episode is the first in a two-part series. We’re going to talk about what fear really is, what causes it, how it affects us, and how you can break free from fear.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The difference between “unconscious” fears and “conscious” fears. 
  • What exactly fear is, when it serves us, and when it doesn’t. 
  • Why fear is a self-created, intangible illusion - and how to use self-love and thinking from a place of power to transcend it. 
  • Why it’s not possible to be “fearless” but it is to fear less - and how to take a 20,000 foot view to understand and use your fears to your advantage.
  • How to avoid spending unnecessarily time in the fear state, even as you face intense challenges, trauma, and setbacks.

Have you ever had the opportunity to talk with a true master in the realms of mindfulness and meditation? Over the years, I’ve read books and learned from various experts, but none with today’s level of mastery. 

Today’s guest, Shinzen Young, has practiced and taught meditation for over 50 years and is considered to be a true master. He is the co-director of the SEMA (Sonication-Enhanced Mindfulness Acquisition) Lab doing neuroscience research at the University of Arizona, and author of one of the most practical books I’ve ever read on the subject: The Science of Enlightenment: How Meditation Works.

In a conversation I’ve been looking forward to for a long time, Shinzen and I dive deep into what makes a mindfulness practice so valuable, overcoming limiting beliefs and setbacks, and what you should do to make your next practice even better.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How to develop the fundamental attention skills that allow us to succeed not just in meditation, but in life.
  • Why it’s so important to establish and maintain goals to have an effective, meaningful, lifelong meditation practice.
  • Why meditation is not the whole story for human happiness - and the negative effects it can have on people. 
  • What happened when Shinzen procrastinated and had to return an advance to a major publisher after failing to deliver his first book. 
  • Why Shinzen recommends you do more of what you’re already doing in your mindfulness practice - and do it better.

Creating the life that you desire is a daily endeavor. It’s done by stringing together intentional, productive, meaningful days, one day at a time. And one of the best ways to do that is to use strategic questions to direct your focus and actions in order to optimize each day of your life.

Last week I sent you an email titled “ONE question to help you experience your most meaningful Thanksgiving ever.” Well, I’ve since pondered the value of applying that ONE question—not just on holidays—but EVERY single day, in order to create the most meaningful LIFE possible.

So, for today’s podcast, I’m exploring how asking, answering, and applying ONE question can help you to create and experience the life you desire, day-after-day-after-day, every single day, for years to come.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why it’s so important to be intentional about how you show up every day.
  • My Top 5 answers to this ONE question.
  • The power of being at peace with the things you can’t change - and why we can always choose between inner peace and inner turmoil.
  • The difference between intellectual gratitude and heartfelt, earth-shattering gratitude.
  • Why you sometimes have to believe in the belief someone else has in you until your own belief catches up.

Do you have a clear vision for what the next 10 years of your life will be like? If not, would you like my help creating one? If you have one, do you think it would be beneficial to revisit it?

Last week, I came across a journal entry I wrote back in 2016. It was titled “The Miracle Morning Movement 10 Year Vision.” When I reread it, I was inspired by some of the possibilities, amazed to realize how much of it had already come true, and reminded that we can all benefit from creating and maintaining a 10-year vision that drives our behavior each day.  

I want you to be able to look back on this moment and say to yourself, “I did it. I got clear on the life I was committed to creating, what I needed to do, who I needed to become to create the most fulfilling life I could imagine, and I made it happen.”

Today, Shawn joins me to talk about the astounding problems with our healthcare system, the importance of diet and exercise in illness prevention, and the major cultural changes that need to happen to help us become a healthier society.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  1. First, you’re going to hear a detailed example of a 10-year vision to show you what it looks like when things come to fruition.
  2. Then we’re going to explore why creating a 10-year vision is worth your time.
  3. Finally, you’re going to learn a step-by-step process you can use to create a 10-year vision of your own.

When I was younger, I made a decision about my diet that forever changed my life: I will value the impact that food has on my body above the taste. At first, nothing changed overnight, but that decision gradually became my guiding principle so much so that I rarely put anything in my body that doesn’t add value to my health and energy.

When it comes to our health, and building our immunity to avoid viruses, disease, and illness, what we eat is arguably the single most important decision we can make. This year has made it more obvious than ever that the United States is the sickest nation in human history, and many people are being drastically affected by preventable illnesses.

However, with all this instability comes an incredible opportunity to change. Researcher and bestselling author, Shawn Stevenson—who joined me on the podcast previously to talk about his book Sleep Smarter—has just released his new book, Eat Smarter: Use the Power of Food to Reboot Your Metabolism, Upgrade Your Brain, and Transform Your Life.

Today, Shawn joins me to talk about the astounding problems with our healthcare system, the importance of diet and exercise in illness prevention, and the major cultural changes that need to happen to help us become a healthier society.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The major underlying issues affecting the health of so many people right now that aren’t being discussed - and what we can do about it.
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the effects of years of ignoring chronic illness.
  • How stress and uncertainty make us physically sicker by suppressing immune function.
  • How to improve and optimize your gut bacteria and the other microorganisms that inhabit your body.

When you hear the word freedom, what do you think about? Today I’m talking about how we can all achieve what I consider to be the ultimate freedom or specifically “inner freedom” – the ability to choose how you experience every aspect of your life in each moment. 

When we have inner freedom, we are in control of our inner world and our experience of life, no matter what’s going on. You have the ability to choose your experience of every aspect of your life, including how you experience other people. If you can attain inner freedom, you win. It doesn’t matter what’s going on in your life, in your bank account, at work, in the government, or in how other people show up—you’re in control. 

Today, I want to talk about how to achieve such a state of inner freedom, even during the most difficult times. You’ll learn why worrying is usually an unnecessary use of our energy, how to transcend inner turmoil, and experience life exactly as you choose.

I think you’re going to love today’s podcast episode!  Maybe I’m a little biased, but I really had a blast with this one. :^D 

It’s a “behind the scenes” conversation from last week, between me and The Miracle Morning Movie team – Director (Nick Conedera) and Producer (Theresa Laurico) – on what it took to make this film. 

How do you make a documentary? How do you take an idea, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing, and turn it into a full-length feature film for an audience of millions? 

I’ve spent the last several years trying to answer these questions as I’ve worked on the Miracle Morning Movie. Nick and Theresa have provided me with invaluable guidance and support on this journey. They are some of my closest friends, a big part of my life, and advocates of the Miracle Morning mission and movement – and they helped inspire this incredible vision and turn it into a reality.

Today, you’ll learn the story behind the Miracle Morning Movie, how we built a powerful network of people all over the world to contribute to the film, and the many challenges, delays, and complications we all faced along the way.

With the world premiere of The Miracle Morning Movie approaching, I’ve been reflecting a lot on how TMM Movement has evolved over the past 12 years. What began as my little morning routine that I shared in a book, has since evolved into an international community and a worldwide movement. It’s had an astounding impact on millions of people as individuals and collectively, one person and one morning at a time. 

The Miracle Morning enables each of us to go out into the world as the best version of ourselves. It gives us the power to impact every life we touch and has had an immeasurable ripple effect on the world around us. 

Today, I’m looking back at how the Miracle Morning has evolved. Whether you’ve been practicing the Miracle Morning for years or just joined the community recently, I’ll be sharing tons of behind-the-scenes stuff you’ve likely never heard before, exploring what it really means to elevate the consciousness of humanity, and diving deep into just what makes this practice so transformative and powerful.

This is truly one of my favorite interviews I’ve ever done. I’ve been a fan of John Assaraf for over a decade. Like millions of people did, I discovered him through his appearance in the 500-million+ copy selling documentary, The Secret

John is also a NY Times bestselling author and the founder of NeuroGym, where he helps equip people with the tools to repattern, rescript, and reshape their subconscious patterns. 

Today, John joins the podcast to talk about the neuroscience beneath goal achievement, how thoughts lead to behavior that generates results, and the “innercises” you can start doing now to figure out how to start forging a path forward, eliminate obstacles, and create a clear path to your goals.

We all struggle. It’s part of life. Whether our struggle is due to a lack of clarity, a lack of confidence, feeling overwhelmed, stressed, frustrated or something else – struggle is an almost inevitable part of being human.  

So, how do we proceed to pursue and achieve our goals in the midst of the struggle? Whether your struggle is mental, emotional, physical, logistical, financial—or all of the above—you may find yourself asking, “What’s the most important thing for me to I do right now? Do I have what it takes? How can I pull this off?”

I’ve been experiencing all of the above as I’m working to launch The Miracle Morning Movie world premiere on 12/12/2020. When I sat down to record this podcast, I was feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, and this episode was born from my own attempt to transcend the struggles that I’m facing right now. 

Today, I want to help you understand what you’re struggling with, find clarity, and take on the challenges you need to face in order to succeed and achieve your goals.

Most of us have important goals that we’d like to achieve. However, it can be challenging to keep our process for setting and achieving goals focused, strategic, and disciplined — especially when we feel overwhelmed. 

To help us get back on track, I’ve turned to my good friend, Geoff Woods, who is arguably one of the most qualified experts I’ve ever encountered when it comes to maintaining an effective process for setting and achieving goals. Geoff is the Vice President of The ONE Thing, host of The ONE Thing podcast, and he’s on a mission to help people better use their time for achieving extraordinary results. 

Today, Geoff joins the podcast to talk about the big mistakes people make when setting goals, how to apply proven principles to your goal setting, and how to shift your mindset to solve problems and grow as a human being, partner, and leader.

What exactly is intuition? How can we know the difference between the self-limiting voice in our head and our highest truth? Is there a source of infinite wisdom that is available to us at all times, and if so, how do we access it consistently?

To help me answer these questions, I’ve reached out to Julie Reisler. Julie is one of the most intuitive people I know. She is an intuition coach, multiple time TEDx speaker, author of Get a PhD in You, and host of the You-est You podcast. Her powerful, life changing process has helped countless individuals transform their lives for the better and access their truest selves.

Today, Julie returns to the podcast to help define what exactly intuition is, how to listen for it, and how to cultivate an intuition practice of your own.

Between our ongoing commitments to work, family, and our seemingly never-ending list of obligations, it isn’t always easy to take care of ourselves. Especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have felt at times like life is spiraling out of control. 

Thus, we could each benefit from a gentle reminder that we are all human and there are things we can do, each day, to regain control of our lives. Today, that reminder comes from Robyn Conley Downs. Robyn has been named one of “the most influential women in wellness” and is the author of The Feel Good Effect

After her daughter was born, and she struggled to keep up with the insane pace of a 60-hour-a-week job and a full-time doctoral program immediately, she developed the mindset and strategies to help herself get out of that place and focus on what really matters. 

For this episode, Robyn joins the podcast to talk about the importance of mindset and mindfulness, and breaks down her four-step process to transform your mindset and create healthy, lasting habits to help you bring the Feel Good Effect into your own life.

A few weeks ago, I recorded an episode of the podcast called “Freedom From Your Emotional Pain.” You can find it at HalElrod.com/338 if you haven’t listened to it yet.

Within that episode, I shared the following quote: "Consider that every painful emotion you have ever experienced has been self-created by resisting your reality. It's never the thing we think we're upset about that's actually upsetting us. It is our resistance. When you accept reality exactly as it is, you are at peace.”

This turned out to be one of the most shared episodes of the podcast I’ve had in a long time, and in addition to some very positive feedback, I also heard from a few people who were in pain and very upset about that quote. They understandably interpreted it as me meaning that our pain is our fault, when my meaning is really intended to identify and overcome the root cause of the pain itself.

Today, in order to help clarify and expand on this message, I’m reading you a chapter from one of my all-time favorite books: Loving What Is by Byron Katie and sharing my interpretation of her message, and how I’ve personally implemented it into my life. In my opinion, Byron Katie understands better than just about anyone how to greet emotional pain with acceptance and love, and find peace within it.

What if you could make one decision, and that decision would automate nearly every decision you’ll ever make again?

Today we’re going to talk about exactly that. Many years ago, I unconsciously made a decision. I established a set of core values and guiding principles, and in doing so, it became the ultimate decision-making engine that predetermined every other decision for myself. It enabled me to know who I would be and how I would respond to any challenge or opportunity.

In today’s episode, I’m giving you a simple process that will make your life easier, improve your self-discipline, and essentially make most of your future decisions for you. You’ll learn how to access a new level of effectiveness when you consciously articulate, clarify, and translate your core values and guiding principles into writing, and discover how to use them to lower your stress and increase your ability to act quickly, decisively, and effectively.

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years, but it may be more important for you now than ever before. There is no denying that we are living through a global mental health crisis, and many of us are facing some of the most intense challenges of our lives.

Julianna Raye is a master of mindfulness, which is why I asked her to join me for today’s podcast. In addition to her more than 12,000 hours of personal practice, I’ve witnessed her lead thousands of members of our community through guided meditation, and her techniques have transformed my personal meditation practice.

Today, Julianna returns to the podcast to share a powerful technique you can start using right now to transform your meditation practice.

Do you dream of a bigger and better future? Have you ever been told to ‘get your head out of the clouds’ and ‘be more realistic’?

Well, you’re not crazy, and you’re not alone.

Every product, innovation social movement and major change in the world started off as one person’s dream – and they were called ‘crazy’ until they made their dream come true… and then they were called a ‘genius.’

The other day I was watching the brand new documentary, Dreamer created by Giovanni Marsico (which you can watch for free at DreamerDocumentary.com), and I absolutely loved it! It was filled with incredible stories of individuals who ignored those who told them to be more realistic, and instead turned their unrealistic dreams into their reality.

I enjoyed the film so much that I immediately reached out to Giovanni and asked him to be on the podcast to share what he’s learned from spending time with some of the world’s most prolific Dreamers. He explores the patterns that he sees in people who have had the power to pursue their vision even when up against crazy resistance, friction, and people telling them it’ll never work out.

Today, Giovanni joins the podcast to share the story behind Dreamer, why there’s a real-life superhero hiding inside of all of us, and his strategies for cultivating meaningful relationships with incredible people who have already achieved what you want to.

The other day, I posted the following quote on social media: "Consider that every painful emotion you have ever experienced has been self-created by resisting your reality. It's never the thing we think we're upset about that's actually upsetting us. It is our resistance. When you accept reality exactly as it is, you are at peace.

To this, I added, “When you accept reality exactly as it is, there is no pain, only peace. Instead of resisting reality, accept it unconditionally, giving yourself the gift of inner peace, and from that place of unconditional peace, you can choose to experience any reality that you want.

Several members of the Miracle Morning Community responded. They wanted to talk about the trauma, sadness, and pain they’ve felt in their own life caused by losing others and enduring difficult circumstances.

On today’s podcast, I want to address this. I want to teach you how to free yourself from emotional pain. I want to help you find the power and purpose in emotional pain and discover how to access the emotional freedom that is available to all of us, right now.

We’re living not just in a global pandemic, but a global mental health crisis. More people are struggling mentally and emotionally than possibly ever before. In fact, nearly half of Americans report the coronavirus crisis is harming their mental health, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll.

However, what can give you the power to manage your mental and emotional state, in times like these, is a strong sense of control of your inner world. Today, we talk about how GRATITUDE can be the key that unlocks the door to your inner freedom.

There are few people I know who excel when it comes to their mental and emotional well-being, like Chip Franks. Chip is a master of choosing the emotion that best serves him in any given circumstance, no matter how difficult or challenging it may be. You’re going to hear Chip talk about dropping his mom off at hospice last week, and how he’s able to remain grateful and joyful, even in the midst of losing his dear mother. 

Today, Chip joins the podcast for the sixth time (not including the times he’s served as a guest host) to share insights on the power of gratitude, about the joy he feels even as he navigates the inevitable, and how we can bring those feelings into every challenge we face - and every area of our lives.

For today’s podcast episode, I want to explore what enables certain people to move through life’s challenges so much more easily and effectively than others, and give you three (3) steps to develop your ability to do the same.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the primary focus of what I’ve been talking with you about is the one thing that you have control over: your inner world (your thinking, your emotional well-being, and ultimately your internal quality of life).

I know that for many of us, it may feel like that’s easier said than done, and it can feel like the pain, frustration, fear, suffering, and sadness in the world controls us.

However, today I want to show you that you absolutely have the ability to control your thinking and to intentionally create an emotional state that serves your highest good and enables you to be proactive – no matter what’s going on in the world, in your life, or with your family.

We’ll also explore the following three (3) key steps that can help you maintain a peaceful, proactive mindset that will help you feel good, happy, energized, and optimistic, even in the midst of pain and loss.
