I am a huge believer in the power of a story, and my guest today has several almost unbelievable chapters to share. Hal Elrod is known for his incredible ability to shine light on even some of the darkest tragedies, of which he’s experienced several in his own life. His book The Miracle Morning has made all the difference in how I start my day, and I can attest firsthand that his formula works.
If you’ve been wanting to make changes, reach some new goals, or learn better habits, today’s episode is a must. Hal will also share about his personally tested ways to gain motivation, clarity, and purpose in just a few minutes every morning.

- The mindset that helped Hal overcome personal tragedy to become a successful author and motivational speaker

- What Hal means by a “miracle morning” and how he came up with the concept

This podcast is sponsored by Organifi, my source for super high quality superfood powders that are often part of my meals, especially when I travel. Green juice, their most popular drink, lets you incorporate farm fresh, gently dehydrated ingredients into your diet and lock in the extra vitamins and antioxidants. I just add to water and drink! It’s my go-to for veggies in the morning and is packed with chlorella for detox, spirulina and turmeric for detox as well as pain and inflammation, mint for improved digestion, matcha green tea for energy, and ashwagandha for cortisol and stress balance. Organifi also has a red juice with antioxidant-rich superfoods like cordyceps, reishi, and rhodiola plus an abundance of red berries. It’s sweet and fruity but low in sugar. It’s designed to fight aging, improve energy and metabolism, and sharpen cognition so I often drink it midday. And lastly, their the Organifi Gold drink is awesome at night and is filled with turmeric for skin health, ginger for achy muscles, turkey tail for immunity, and coconut milk for healthy saturated fat.
