Are You Grateful?

Are you grateful for all the blessings in your life?

I sure am.

I am grateful in fact for a habit I have, that I acquired from one of our Blackbelt Leadership students, Mrs. Lynn Schrader, in which I post one thing I am grateful for every single day on my personal facebook page.


I am grateful for my mission that I wrote 20 years ago and that I get to execute with the most amazing Team and students every day, whom I am also grateful for. I am grateful for a great wife, great family and friends and for my personal realationship with my personal Lord and Savior who is with me every day.

And listen, it’s not that everything is perfect all the time, but it is that there is always something to be grateful for.

We get more of what we focus on- energy flows where focus goes.

So I challenge you to focus on being grateful.

It’s one of the best ways to attract more to be grateful about.
