4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage Part 1—The Individual

50% of marriages end in divorce. Out of the half that stay together, 1/3 report being happy, 1/3 are “happy enough” and the other 1/3 are miserable. We actively plan our businesses, goals, and finances, but most of us keep our marriage on auto-pilot and expect it to maintain itself. Communication breaks down, resentment builds, and the love slowly dies.

We are dedicating this month to designing our relationships with our spouses. Lance Salazar from Legendary Couples is back on the show. He has just released The Miracle Morning for Legendary Couples which he coauthored with Hal Elrod. He breaks down the 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage for us:

  1. The Individual
  2. The Partnership
  3. Becoming Friends
  4. Becoming Lovers

Today, we talk about the first element, which is the individual. In order to be the best partners and parents, we have to work on ourselves first. Two people need to be able to stand on their own before they can love another. As a couple, spouses need to be interdependent, not codependent. Nothing is more attractive than a confident person who knows what they want and need in life. That is why, even though it sounds counterintuitive, the first step is to put the marriage on the shelf and let each person retreat in order to deal with their own baggage. Listen to how Lance and Brandy Salazar did it in this episode!

debrief to win accountable leadership

Debrief to Win with former Top Gun Instructor Robert “Cujo” Teschner

Who knows how to rapidly assess, respond, and adapt under extreme pressure better than a Top Gun fighter pilot? Today we are super-psyched to have Top Gun instructor Robert “Cujo” Teschner on the show! He’s releasing his book called Debrief to Win: How High-Performing Leaders Practice Accountable Leadership. He is also a husband, a father of five children, and a cancer survivor.

You don’t get to Cujo’s level without doing the work and prepping yourself to win at all costs. He reveals that even though his military career was taking off, he was failing in other dimensions of his life. One day he realized that if he applied his elite training to his health and family, he would dominate across the board.

Listen to his Debrief to Win system to set yourself up for a successful mission no matter what the dogfight of life throws at you.

Robert “Cujo” Teschner

Robert “Cujo” Teschner is a retired, multiple award-winning United States Air Force fighter pilot. He was the 125th F-15C Instructor at the Air Force Weapons School – the Air Force “TOP GUN” Program. He commanded the 7th Fighter Squadron “Screamin’ Demons,” one of America’s only front-line operational F-22 squadrons. He won multiple awards for flying excellence and was promoted to the rank of full-Colonel. He has multiple advanced degrees and also spent his entire career leading high-performance teams to success. This earned him the callsign “Cujo,” the warrior that flew combat missions over the skies of Iraq.

He’s proud to be a dad and believes his number one job is to raise his kids.

“I don’t lose. That’s my culture. We’re going to be facing adversity every day. It’s not a question of if it’s going to happen, it’s how you’re going to react to it.”—Robert “Cujo” Teschner

Battling Cancer as a Dad with Hal Elrod


Hal Elrod is a best selling author, international keynote speaker, ultra-marathon runner, world class success coach, and most importantly, a father. He is a man who made it his life’s mission to reach his true potential. Hal seemed absolutely unstoppable. Then he was diagnosed with cancer.

In this episode, Hal Elrod reveals what it was like to face death head-on, what tools he used to heal himself, and how he and his family got though it.

'The greatest gift that we can give to the people that we love is to fulfill our potential so that we can help them fulfill theirs.' – @HalElrod #quotes #miracles #dads #men #fathers #manhood #fatherhood Click To Tweet

Hal Elrod

Hal began a promising career in sales when he was nineteen years old. Then he was hit head-on by a drunk driver at 70 miles an hour. His car was spun into oncoming traffic and he was crushed inside. He bled so heavily from his injuries that he was dead for 6 minutes until the rescue crew cut him out of the wreckage. This first major adversity made him wonder if he was meant for something more. He soon became a motivational speaker.

Then, in 2008 the economy crashed, and Hal crashed with it. He lost half his clients and income, which led to him losing his house to the bank. It was 6-month downward spiral. He came to the conclusion that in order to turn his life around, he would have to dedicate time every day to personal development. The only problem was, how make time for it, and how to make that time incredibly productive?

'Choose the emotions that’ll best serve you. Don’t let your circumstances dictate your emotions.' – @HalElrod #quotes #adversity #cancer #death #affirmations Click To Tweet

Hal decided he’d have to a wake up an hour earlier. Even though it was hard for him at first, it was the only way. Then he researched and gathered the most powerful personal development strategies in human history and began to practice them. He started meditation, affirmations, visualization, exercise, reading, and journaling. He wrote the wildly popular book based on this system. To this day, his life’s work is The Miracle Morning.

By this time, Hal was married with two kids. They had their home in Austin and were living the dream until the toughest year of his life when he was diagnosed with cancer.

What You’ll Learn

  • The key to being free from emotional pain
  • How he chose to be happy and grateful while facing a 70% chance of dying
  • How to get over the hump of feeling guilty for investing in yourself
  • How The Miracle Morning will help you become a better version of yourself every day
  • Why Hal reads ten pages a parenting or marriage book every morning instead of a business book
  • Why you should read in front of your kids
  • How his wife and kids responded to his diagnosis
  • How he coped with his family’s reaction
  • Why we have to choose our reasons for our adversity
  • What circled in his mind day in and day out as he endured a brutal chemo treatment
  • Hal’s view on death
  • The miracle equation to do things you didn’t think you could do
  • How he used the miracle equation to defy the odds and beat cancer
  • Why the purpose of the goal is not to hit the goal
  • Why you should write down affirmations and recite them
  • How affirmations were a crucial factor in his healing
  • How his experience with cancer made him a better father
