Book Review: The Miracle Equation by Hal Elrod

A couple weeks ago I had a friend reach out and ask if I had ever read The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.  I quickly replied no, but not for lack of suggestion or complimentary reviews.  He let me know Hal had a follow-up book The Miracle Equation. 

A few hours later, I had the chance to share with a fan of The Miracle Morning and found myself buying a copy of The Miracle Equation.

I’ve never been one to recite daily mantra of affirmations.  I don’t and haven’t had a negative or poor connotation of affirmations and mindset patterns.  In the last few years I’ve read ‘Think and Grow Rich’ several times and marvel at the throngs of successful high-significance people that cite it as a catalyst for them.

I have the last few months had the practice of using a morning journaling app and marvel at the difference.  At first it didn’t seem like it was doing much for me.  But I found how much better my days went.  How much better my focus is when I spend the few minutes in the morning to prepare my mind.

As I finished The Miracle Equation, I appreciate the journey Hal has grown through.  The results in his sales career and the battle of his life against cancer.  He has used in each the equation so simple it seems like it can’t be enough.  A recital of 2 statements.  Two statements that create such a simple mindset that can do nothing but keep it so simple that you can’t fail.  A declaration of unwavering faith combined with extraordinary effort.  The two factors that no one person has more talent or skill than another.

I encourage you to check the book out (you can find a link to it here) or listen to it on audio as you’re working out or driving to and fro as I have.  I can guarantee you will look differently at the practice of having a simple equation to direct you each and every day.

Have you read it or practice affirmations in your daily routine? Yes or no! Let me know in the comments below
