I spoke at the Expert Insights Book awards, won a $13,500 publishing
prize (giving it to my husband), and I received a big award from
Senator Omer L Rainsfor my contribution to the economic education
and empowerment of women around the world. (See pic below.)
Wow! Lots to be grateful for!
(And life was pretty terrific before all these bonuses.)
I also received a letter from a client, about the magical power of gratitude… and I thought you might find it useful, so I’m sharing it with you, here:
“I was walking out of the grocery store earlier and just took a few minutes to say a ‘thank you’ to the universe for the amazing food that I was able to buy, for the car I have to drive home, and my amazing family I am able to feed.
A few weeks I found myself starting to get into that complaining mode…. And complaining when I should be thankful. For example – I would find myself saying ‘oh we only had X money for our bank deposit today? That is small’; or ‘We only had X many orders yesterday… that is not very great’; or ‘ I have to buy bread AGAIN’. Those little statements that lead to the slow and insidious spiral – but I caught myself and turned it around.
And the funny thing about my small little thank you’s: I got back to my office and had a phone call out of the blue for a new client and I also had an email for a green light on a project that I quoted over a month ago!
I didn’t have gratitude with any motive in mind, but was truly grateful for how easy I have it and how I am genuinely happy!
Miss you – love you!!! And thank you for you!!”
Now, there are times in life when it’s not so easy to grateful. I do not believe
it’s appropriate to try to force gratitude on someone who is suffering. (That’s just rude and insensitive.)
But if you can come up with anything worthy of a little love and appreciation in your life, I invite you to give yourself the gift of gratitude. It’s good for you and the life you want to create.
