Wanna know how you can become HAPPIER instantly?
Today’s message is especially dedicated to Deisy in Los Angeles.
As part of my “power walks” in the morning, I focus on gratitude. Gratitude is one of the most important aspects of life, but unfortunately, one of the least practiced. I usually start by appreciating the trees, then I focus on my family and friends. After that, I focus on my students and all the people that I come in contact with. I also am grateful for my car, my job, the ability to do what I love and make a difference. By the time I’m done with my 10 minutes of gratitude, I feel so euphoric that I almost feel like crying. It doesn’t get much better than that.
I know how appreciating things in my life make me feel and how it has helped me achieve peak performance…that is what I am trying to do for people all over the world. Our lives are so fast-paced that we don’t stop and smell the roses. Don’t just be a sheep and follow the flock. Live life at YOUR speed and enjoy EVERY moment of it. In your sport, APPRECIATE the fact that you have the ability to play. The ability to compete. Be grateful for your opponents, for, if you didn’t have any, you wouldn’t be able to test yourself and see your progress. In school, be grateful for being able to learn life skills. At work, be grateful that you even have a job and are making money. There are many unemployed people out there. If you’re unemployed, be grateful for other areas of your life, like your family and friends, your health, etc. Say Thank You to everyone. Hold doors open for people. And for those people that you STRONGLY dislike…be especially nice to them for sometimes they teach you the best lessons. The best way to INSTANTLY become happier is to have gratitude for everything in your life.
Thank you for reading.
