About the Author

Hal Elrod is the #1 Best-selling Author of what is being called one of the most life-changing books of all time: "THE MIRACLE MORNING:The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed To Transform Your Life... (Before 8AM)." Before he was an author, Hal was a hall of fame business achiever, record-breaking sales rep, and ultra-marathon runner. However, Hal's real triumph came in the face of an extraordinary tragedy, at age 20, when Hal's Ford Mustang was hit head on by a drunk driver at 70 mph, and Hal was found DEAD at the scene. After 6 minutes without a heartbeat, 11 broken bones, 6 days in a coma, suffering permanent brain damage, and being told by doctors that he may never walk again, Hal has proven that we all have the ability to overcome any obstacle and create the life of our dreams. He has appeared on dozens of radio and TV shows across the country, and he’s been featured in numerous books, including The Education of Millionaires, Cutting Edge Sales, Living College Life in the Front Row, The Author’s Guide To Building An Online Platform, The 800-Pound Gorilla of Sales and the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series. To contact Hal about media appearances, speaking at your event, or if you just want to receive free training videos and resources, visit his website at www.YoPalHal.com.

Hal Elrod is one of the most incredible & inspirational people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is one of those people who, after meeting, you simply can't get out of your head. His attitude, energy and enthusiasm simply get in and take over.

This book tells the true story of a life altering accident. The great majority of the people in this world would have given in to the trauma that Hal faced at an early age. But Hal Elrod is different. His unwavering perseverance to regain the life that he lost is nothing short of a miracle.

This past weekend Hal gave the keynote speech at an international sales training event. In his speech Hal quoted, "In every moment our life is shaped by the decisions we make." This is so true. Hal's daily decisions are the reflection of a man truly thankful to be alive, to be an inspiration, and to be the best possible version of oneself.

Please read this book, and give another copy to someone you love and appreciate.

Everyone is getting up an hour earlier - most of the achievers. Oprah's guests all talk about it and it makes sense. I enjoy this book, reread it, and carry it with me at times. Life is complicated for me and I need tips on how to handle situations others find helpful - not going to redo the wheel. I take out what I need, can do at the moment, highlight what is important and use a different color for the ideas I need to try-still.

If you have not read this book and his other one (The Miracle Morning) EHAT are you waiting for! Both are very uplifting and encouraging. You will not look at life the same way again. Turn your tragedies into triumphs.

I enjoyed reading Hal's account of his recovery from his accident and how he pulled himself out of the tragedy and decided he would remain positive and optimistic. He provides clear guidance on how each of us can choose to do the same thing.

This is clearly a message I needed to hear to stop putting off my future for 'someday' and start taking action NOW!

Thank you Hal!

I didnt want the book to end. I wanted to savor the hope. As I read I got excited and shared it with others. His basic concept is change is a journey and not something to hope for but live. Get up and reach your destiny. I'll see you at the top.

Hal's story is pretty amazing, and he comes across as an authentic and likeable young man. The book has many good tips and I have added many bookmarks for future reference. If we were all able to live by Hal's "five-minute rule" and take responsibility for ourselves the world would be a vastly different place. I am about to start reading his next book "The Miracle Morning" and hope to start implementing some of his strategies to make my days more productive.

I might add that I have a huge library of self help books as I work with people with mental health issues, however I rarely read these books all the way through. Hal's enthusiastic personality kept me going with this one, and I believe that I can incorporate some of his strategies into my workplace in future. Thanks Hal, for sharing your story.

A phenomenal book about the power of being positive. It's filled with real world examples, most of them from the author's own life experiences. I don't know how anyone could read this book and not recognize that spending one more second in a negative state of mind is a crime against your life. It's a quick read that will change your life if taken seriously.
