A Deep Dive Into The Book (9:40)
It starts out with the introduction which is my story and why yours is the one that matters. I share the details of my car wreck and the actionable lessons I learned from it.
Chapter one – it’s time to wake up to your full potential – this just reinforces the idea that we are capable of so much more than we could have ever even considered for ourselves. This chapter is designed to really remind you of the unlimited potential that’s in all of us.
Chapter two – The miracle morning origin born out of desperation – this is the in-depth version of the story of how I came up with the miracle morning.
Chapter three – The 95% reality check – it’s essentially the reality check that 95% of our society will never live life on their terms.
Chapter four – Why did you wake up this morning – The purpose behind the miracle morning is the idea that most people wake up not because they want to but because they have to. When we hit the snooze button we are starting our day with procrastination which sets the tone for you to become the person that procrastinates in other areas in life. This also starts your day with a lack of self-discipline.
Chapter five – The five step snooze proof wake up strategy for the snooze-oholics – This is the most important chapter.

Notable Quotes From The Book
“The number one cause of unfulfilled potential of regret and of struggle is never deciding that now matters more than any other time in your life because it does.” – Hal Elrod
The Credibility/Inspiration Of The Author (0:34)
I was a radio DJ until I got into sales where I was one of the youngest sales rep ever inducted into the companies’ hall of fame. I broke a bunch of sales records and thought that I was going to do that forever. I was in a horrific car accident, died for six minutes, broke 11 bones and told I would never walk again. I bounced back from that and went on to write a couple of bestselling books, became a coach and a motivational speaker.
It was never intended to be a book, it was written out of responsibility to share my experiences with other people. I did research and created what seemed to be the ultimate morning ritual and within two months of doing it I more than doubled my income.
