With the New Year upon us, how do we make it count? Hal Elrod and Jon Berghoff touch base with Christopher for today’s episode. Together, they discuss ways to make 2019 our best year ever.
“How do I create an identity for myself that I just want to keep living into? I guess I would call that an ‘accountability’ to my image of myself.” – Jon Berghoff
A Shift in Priorities and Values
Hal has been working on two new books. The Miracle Equation comes out in April. Miracle Morning for Couples: How to Make Your Relationship Legendary One Morning at a Time is to be released on Valentine’s Day.
On top of his writing, he’s been busy being the best dad and husband, spending every possible moment with his kids and helping his wife take care of them. This showed especially when he completely forgot about a book deadline in favor of spending time with his kids and a friend’s.
“That’s a fundamental, radical subconscious shift in my priorities and in my values… While I’m still navigating the balance, it’s positive.” – Hal Elrod
The Miracle Equation
Hal has worked on The Miracle Equation long before The Miracle Morning. He has used the equation to teach people and help them exceed everything they have done before.
Two fundamental decisions make up the equation: unwavering faith and extraordinary effort. Any high achiever who has contributed anything extraordinary to this world and achieved something extraordinary in their lives make these two fundamental decisions. They maintain them to achieve those results.
Achieving Inevitable Success
One must establish unwavering faith that you can do something you’ve never done before. This is counterintuitive and defies our human nature. We tend to stick to things we’re familiar with, but it’s important that we go out.
Extraordinary effort must be put forth until results are achieved. It may take a while, even with the two decisions in play, but it’s just like everything.
“When you live your life where you approach your every day, every goal, every dream with unwavering faith and extraordinary effort, your success is inevitable. It’s only a matter of time.” – Hal Elrod

Hal Elrod is on a mission to elevate the consciousness of humanity, one morning at a time.
He is one of the highest-rated keynote speakers in America, creator of one of the fastest growing and most engaged online communities in existence and author of one of the highest rated, best-selling books in the world, The Miracle Morning.
Hal actually died at age 20, hit head-on by a drunk driver at 70 miles per hour. His heart stopped for 6 minutes and he broke 11 bones. Eventually, he woke from a coma to be told by doctors that he would never walk again.
Not only did Hal walk, he went on to run a (52 mile) ultra-marathon and become a hall of fame business achiever—before the age of 30.
Then, in November of 2016, Hal nearly died again. His kidneys, lungs, and heart were on the verge of failing. This led to a diagnosis of a very rare, very aggressive form of cancer (acute lymphoblastic leukemia).
Hal is now cancer-free and the Executive Producer of The Miracle Morning Movie. It’s a documentary that both shows you the morning rituals of some of the world’s most successful people, as well as takes you around the world to show you the life-changing impact that Miracle Mornings are having, globally.
Hal is also the host of the highly acclaimed Achieve Your Goals podcast, creator of the Best Year Ever Blueprint Live Experience, and bestselling author of ten  books in The Miracle Morning book series.
As one of the most inspiring, highly entertaining (we’re talking “wannabe stand-up comedian” level humor!), and one of the most in-demand keynote speakers in the world, whether you are an individual or an organization, Hal will give you the tools to Wake Up to Your Full Potential.
