Hal Elrod wrote the sensational book called “The Miracle Morning” whereby he teaches you the importance of waking up early and crushing it.
Below are some great quotes from Hal. Enjoy.
Know that wherever you are in your life right now is both temporary, and exactly where you are supposed to be. You have arrived at this moment to learn what you must learn, so you can become the person you need to be to create the life you truly want. Even when life is difficult or challenging-especially when life is difficult and challenging-the present is always an opportunity for us to learn, grow, and become better than we’ve ever been before.
Wake up early everyday so that while others are still dreaming, you can make your dreams come true.
Experience G.R.A.T.I.T.U.D.E. at a deeper level… Give it… Receive it… Affirm it… Think it… Inspire it in others… Talk about it… Understand it… Dream it… Experience it in everything you do…
To reach levels of success you’ve never reached before, you must be committed at a level you’ve never been committed at before.
No extraordinary result ever came from mediocre effort.
Life isn’t about wishing you were somewhere, or someone that you’re not. Life is about enjoying where you are, loving who you are and consistently improving both.
I stopped putting energy into wishing my life were any different — into wishing bad things didn’t happen to me — and instead focused 100% on making the best of what I had.
It begins with accepting total responsibility for every aspect of your life and refusing to blame anyone else. The degree to which you accept responsibility for everything in your life is precisely the degree of personal power you have to change or create anything in your life.
Our subconscious minds are equipped with a self-limiting rearview mirror, through which we continuously relive and recreate our past. We mistakenly believe that who we were is who we are, thus limiting our true potential in the present, based on the limitations of our past. As a result, we filter every choice we make — from what time we will wake up in the morning to which goals we will set to what we allow ourselves to consider possible for our lives — through the limitations of our past experiences.
When the alarm clock goes off, and we hit the snooze button (the easy thing), most people mistakenly assume that this action is only affecting that moment. The reality is that this type of action is programming our subconscious mind with the instructions that it is okay for us to not follow through with the things we intended to do.
We hit the snooze button and resist the inevitable act of waking up, unaware that our resistance is sending a message to the universe that we’d rather lie there in our beds — unconscious — than consciously and actively live and create the lives we say that we want.
Meditation is a gift that you can give yourself every day.
Jim Carry wrote himself a check in 1987 in the amount of 10 million dollars. He dated it for “Thanksgiving 1995” and added in the memo line, “For acting services rendered.” He then visualized it for years, and in 1994 he was paid 10 million dollars for his starring role in Dumb and Dumber.
It occurred to me that it didn’t matter how accurate each of his criticisms were, because that was how I was showing up for him — and probably many others.
