Episode 273: Hal Elrod’s Relationship with His Goal of “The Miracle Morning Movie”

What does it look like when times get hard and you’re not sure if you’re going to be able to achieve your goal anymore? How do you stay committed and achieve the goal?

This episode is a case study about goals. Not about setting goals but having a relationship with them. Because we don’t need new or better ways to set goals — we just need a way to create a relationship with the goals that we do have. The purpose of a goal is not to achieve a result but to be appropriate in the moment. It’s who you become along the way to achieving that goal that matters.

Hal Elrod is the author of “The Miracle Morning,” but this is not about “The Miracle Morning.” This is about Hal’s goal of creating “The Miracle Morning Movie” and the story of how he had to have a relationship with that goal to weather massive setbacks. Listen to his mindset and how he stayed committed, because every single one of us has something to learn from this.
