Ask Altucher

Hal Elrod died.

We're not talking metaphorically; he actually died in a head-on car accident. Driving home in his new car he was hit head on by a drunk driver. He bled to death on the side of the freeway.

After six days in a coma he woke up to find that he had 11 broken bones, permanent brain damage, and doctors said he might never walk again.

But he had learned a very important lesson from his time as a door-to-door knife salesman. He calls it the 5-minute rule. It's OK to be negative when things go wrong, but for no more than 5 minutes

Not only did Hal walk, he went on to run a 52-mile ultra-marathon, become a hall of fame business achiever, international Keynote Speaker, success coach, hip-hop recording artist, and multiple-time #1 bestselling author of The Miracle Morning series of books.

If you win the morning you win the day.

That wasn't the only time he had to overcome huge problems. But again his 5-minute rule kicked in.

Listen to Hal's incredible story and hear his list of six personal goals that he does every day. His life savers.
