Today’s episode of the podcast is going to cover three somewhat random and unrelated (yet very important) topics. I’m talking about: Four profound lessons learned from the BEST vacation of my life – and how you can immediately apply them to enhance your daily life. Major disruptions in our food supply chain and how to prepare for the very realistic possibility of coming food shortages. Why the book I’m reading right now is SO good that it may have led me to stop writing my newest book. Why these topics? In short, they all tie back to health, safety, freedom, and happiness.  Key...

Achieve Your Goals with Hal Elrod

Do you consider yourself to be an optimist, a pessimist, or a realist? Optimism, pessimism, and realism are three different paradigms that impact how we approach life and interpret life’s events. For some, they’re even identities. When we face difficult times, our dominant paradigm tends to become amplified, which can be the determining factor in whether we suffer or thrive. I’ve experienced this in a unique way. For many years of my life, I was what I would call a delusional optimist. While this helped me through some difficult times, it also stopped me from healthily processing...

Would you say that you’re truly happy? In 2020, I got to a place where I was so depressed that I told my wife and my friends, “I don’t remember what it feels like to be happy.” That was after I had already sent my wife a desperate text message one night that read, “I don’t want to worry you, but I feel like I don’t want to live, and I don’t know what to do.”  I was so scared that I’d never be able to get back to a place of happiness again and couldn’t remember how to get there. But over the course of the past year, I’ve gone from being the most unhappy I’ve ever...

If I were to ask you to recall the best moment of your life, what comes to mind…? I think most people would recall a significant event or occasion, such as the birth of a child, their wedding day, running a marathon, or the day that they got to ______ (fill in the blank with some exceptional experience). For most, the best moment would likely be an event or circumstance and the positive emotions they experienced as a result, which prompts them to identify it as their best moment. But what if the best moment of your life wasn’t measured by external circumstances? What if it was something...

Achieve Your Goals with Hal Elrod

Have you ever taken the time to examine your identity and how it’s impacted your life? For most of us, that’s not something we ever even think of doing. Our identity kind of runs in the background, and yet it impacts everything we do.  Every day we show up and live our lives based on who we believe we are and how we perceive ourselves—and these beliefs can either help us or hurt us. In essence, what we believe about ourselves—good OR bad—is what we become. Today, we’re going to bring our unexamined identities to the surface and I’m going to share actionable steps you can...

If I were to ask you to recall the best moment of your life, what comes to mind…?

I think most people would recall a significant event or occasion, such as the birth of a child, their wedding day, running a marathon, or the day that they got to ______ (fill in the blank with some exceptional experience). For most, the best moment would likely be an event or circumstance and the positive emotions they experienced as a result, which prompts them to identify it as their best moment.

But what if the best moment of your life wasn’t measured by external circumstances? What if it was something you chose rather than something that occurred randomly? If that were the case, could one choose to make any, or every moment the best moment of their life? Might that be possible?

And if it was possible to choose to experience any moment as the best moment of your life, if you had that ability, what would be the repercussions of using that ability daily? How might it impact the quality of your life?

Today, we’re exploring this idea of the best moment of your life; what it’s about, if we have the power to create and experience it, if it’s left to chance, and if it’s random. I’m also going to share why people struggle with implementing this concept, and how you can overcome the struggles in a way that can significantly and immediately enhance the quality of your life.

Ultimately, in this episode I share how you can begin experiencing any moment as the best moment of your life—literally—even during extremely difficult circumstances.

Key Takeaways

  • Why pitting external circumstances against the internal experience is key to achieving inner freedom—and why inner freedom is (arguably) more important than your external circumstances.
  • How to create your inner experience during trying and emotionally painful times.
  • The power of accepting the moment as-is to invite emotional peace, inner peace, and emotional freedom.
  • How to be an island of sanity for the people closest to you in chaotic times.
  • Ways to make any given moment the best moment of your life and live in a state of perpetual fulfillment.
