Grateful?? You Bet!!

My colleague Chef Norm reminded me of something very important today and I wanted to reinforce it...

If you ask anyone who knows me they will tell you I am a typical positi vely focused person. And I suppose it has much to do with the life I am now enjoying..

But here's what those people don't know..and that is I practice gratitude everyday and I strongly believe that has a lot to do with my addition to action of course.

Here's how it started. My daughter Ashley gave me a gratitude book over a year ago. And the practice in that gratitude book is simple.

Each day I write three things I am grateful for today and three things I am grateful for tomorrow...and here's the trick..the things I am grateful for in the future I write them as I have already achieved them...

And you know what...I thought I was having success before but all those things I am grateful for in the future have come true or I am well on the way to making them come true.

As an entrepreneur, particularly, this has helped me during the hard times and believe me there have been hard times.

My challenge to you..go through life grateful or not grateful. The choice is yours but so is the result of the choice.

To your success!

Here's to Your Success!
