Thank You Helps You

Thought for the day. 

When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies within you.   – Tecumseh

Gratitude is the foundation of your strength, your joy and your hope for the future. No one can fully succeed without it.

Gratitude is the payback for achieving

It has no value to anyone but you. Learn to enjoy the feeling. You earn it.

Where to start

Life deals us uneven hands. No matter.

Every day has wonders. Many years ago my father in law told me the profit in farming was the first warm day in spring when you could take off your jacket and feel the sun. Money was just a limit.

Learn to appreciate anything and everything. It is good practice for learning observation skill.

When things go wrong.

And they will. Every wrong outcome has a lesson. Education is never cheap so always be grateful for what you learn. It will have value another day.

A wise man’s thought. 

My friend and client Jim Knight said it best after a near calamitous business setback.

I have never learned a thing being right.

Look for the best in everything.
