Meet a man who makes miracles happen. Today, I’m joined in the studio by Hal Elrod, author of the international bestseller The Miracle Morning and his newest book, The Miracle Equation. After overcoming multiple near-death experiences and financial hardships, Hal channeled his adversity into helping others overcome their own challenges. His Miracle Morning approach has impacted millions of lives.

On today’s episode, Hal tells us all about his updated version of The Miracle Morning. He explains SAVERS, the six foundational practices that will transform your morning and change your life. We also talk about tips for hacking your sleep, productivity, and relationships.

Hal shares the stories of his devastating car accident and rare cancer diagnosis—and the superpowers he gained from coming back to life. We explore how these near-death experiences changed his perspective on life and what he values most. He also tackles some tough questions… Should we try to help everyone? What does it mean to be a “man”? And what does it take to truly serve others? There’s so much to take away from Hal’s refreshing and optimistic perspective.
