Hal had two rock bottoms. The first was being nearly killed by a drunk driver when he was 20. The second was the economic collapse in 2007. Hal had been a successful business and sales coach and was building a business as a paid speaker. His first book was #1 on Amazon.
He lost half of his clients and income and his book publisher absconded with the profits from his book. He lost his house and control of his health. He was nearly suicidal. Hal considers this worse than the first rock bottom.

Hal started to turn things around with help from a close friend. His first piece of advice was to start exercising again. That first run was the catalyst to change. See, exercise makes everything better.
Hal’s secret is that your level of personal development will match your level of success. He began devoting an hour a day to personal development. He researched the six most powerful methods of personal development and vowed to do all six each day.
Silence: This could be meditation or prayer.
Affirmation: a written statement articulating what you want and how to get it.
Visualization: visualize the end result and then what you need to do that day to achieve it.
Exercise: You can’t deny the benefits, physical, emotional, and mental.
Reading: The fastest way to increase your personal development.
Scribing: Journaling your thoughts.
