What does it mean to be successful?   Gary Keller once shared an interest answer to this question: “Success is nothing more than moving from failure to failure without giving up.” And the more people we talk to, the more examples we see of that being true.   In this episode, we’re going to explore the value of failure – when paired with persistence – with Bruce Buffer, who you may know as UFC’s Voice of the Octagon.   In this episode, you will learn... [9:30] Why being told NO is just an opportunity for a future YES [15:15] How high achievers move from failure to failure without giving up [18:05] ONE thing you can do to create support in your life & improve your ability to persevere through failure   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: Where in your life are you currently succeeding so slowly that you think you’re failing – and how can you begin to trust The Domino Effect?   If you’d like to go beyond consuming content and are committed to living it, head over to the1thing.com/membership and join us in Living Your ONE Thing.

Can you imagine if all of your dreams, inspirations, and the things you wanted out of life were stripped away from you in a moment? It makes you really consider what matters most.   Our guest actually did die at the age of 20, after being hit head-on by a drunk driver at 70 MPH. After six days in a coma, he woke up only to be told he’d never walk again. Well, not only can this person walk – he’s run a 52-mile ultramarathon, built a successful business, and wrote an incredible bestselling book: The Miracle Morning. Then, after being diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia in 2016 and given a grim prognosis, he’s done the impossible again.   Today you are going to discover the story of how Hal Elrod formed a powerful morning routine that set him up for success, how the idea of a Miracle Morning has impacted the lives of over 500,000 people, and how he maintains clarity on what matters most.     In this episode, you will learn... [4:20] What The Miracle Morning is & how can it help you achieve your goals? [9:10] The lead domino that led to Hal’s success. [11:15] How you can shift from a mindset of success to a mindset of fulfillment (and why it matters). [26:55] How to align your actions with your true priorities. [30:15] What The Miracle Equation is & how it will help you achieve extraordinary results.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: If you’re listening to this show, that means you’re probably growth-minded and want more out of life, specifically as it pertains to your time. The challenge is how often are we furthering our education in something that is not our number one priority?   I love the story Hal shares about how, once he got clarity that family was truly what mattered most, he went down a road to reading and furthering his education on how to be a better father or husband before he earned the right to develop his education on running a business.   It’s so simple, but how many of us do it? Not easy – but simple. What’s the ONE simple action that you’re not taking today that, if you started taking it, would make everything else easier or unnecessary in your life?   We hope you’ll share the ONE action you’re taking with us by clicking here to leave a review in iTunes or sharing it on social media using #theONEthing.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at halelrod.com Connect with Hal: Facebook | Twitter Join The Miracle Morning Community on Facebook Listen: Achieve Your Goal with Hal Elrod Get your own copy of Hal’s Miracle Morning books Download The Way of Life app   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Do you wish there was someone in your world willing to hold you accountable?   Most of us want someone in our life who has a vision of what’s possible for us and is willing to take a stand for our greatness, even when we’re fighting for our limitations. Tim Beverlin found that person – and he found it in the form of a five-year-old girl.   In this episode, Tim shares his own 66-day journey so you can see what it looks like to leverage accountability and form that first power habit – and how weaving purpose into all of this can take your results to an even higher level.   In this episode, you will learn... [1:30] What it’s like on day 66 of a 66-day challenge. [4:00] How your children can support you and keep you more accountable (and how you can help them live The ONE Thing). [11:45] What would it look like in your business if you focus on ONE thing every day for 66 days? [13:00] How enlisting support from your children can bring a sense of purpose to a 66-day challenge. [18:00] What you can do to bring a counterbalance to the seven most important areas of your life. [21:50] How you can decide what your next power habit should be. [26:40] ONE thing you need to know if you want to start a 66-day challenge (or if you’ve tried in the past and failed).   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: When you do ONE thing, the right thing, it can topple over many things. Because success is sequential – not simultaneous.   What amazing possibilities are your currently missing in your life, and how can you go small to form your first power habit?   Go to the1thing.com/66daychallenge to download your own 66-day calendar.
