BOOKS

The Miracle Morning, The 6 Habits That Will Transform Your Life Before 8AM

By Hal Elrod

This book aims to show readers that they can wake up every single day with more energy, motivation and focus and take life to the next level.

Author Hal Elrod is a living example of this. At 20 years old, he was in a head-on collision with a drunk driver, and was dead for six minutes. Doctors told his parents that if he was to ever wake from his coma, he would have permanent brain damage and may never walk again.

After six days in his coma, Hal proved that we all have the ability to overcome any obstacle. He started to walk again, then became a marathon runner, businessman, international keynote speaker, success coach, husband, father, musician and multiple-time #1 best selling author.

Atomic Habits, An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones

By James Clear

Having created a system that helps you get one per cent better every single day, James Clear wants his readers to understand that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions. These could be as little as doing two push-ups a day or waking up five minutes earlier.

These are what he calls atomic habits.

Minuscule changes or movements can have maximum impact on your life, and Jame delves into the psychology and neuroscience of it all, and why it matters. He tells inspiring stories of Olympians, leading CEOs and distinguished scientists who have used these atomic habits to stay productive, motivated and most importantly, happy.
