I Am Thankful For Many Things.

So when one of my clients told me that they hated their life and that they were stressed, this is what I told them:

If you hate your life then give me your wife, your children, your house, your car and all your money.

And if you are stressed then stop going out and getting more stuff that I know you are going to hate anyway.

Why did I say that?

Because this person was not thankful for what they already had.

The fastest way to feel good and happy is to be thankful and grateful.

I will say that again.

The fastest way to feel good and happy is to be thankful and grateful.

So go ahead and create a thankful list.

What are you thankful for?

When you are feeling down, reading this list will prop you up.

So how do you create a thankful list?

Well, imagine you lost everything in a fire, what would you miss the most?

When I did this exercise, I came up with the following:

1. I am thankful that I am alive. I have been given the gift of a new day to do what I want.

2. I am thankful for who I am. I am special and unique. I accept and respect myself 100%. I acknowledge that I have strengths and weaknesses. Everyone does. No-one is perfect.

3. I am thankful that I am healthy both mentally and physically. My mind and body is in excellent working condition. I am free from pain and not on medication.

4. I am thankful for my family and friends who love and support me.

5. I am thankful for living in this great country called Australia, with its clean air, safe environment, friendly people, beautiful beaches and opportunities.

6. I am thankful for the comfortable home I live in with access to clean water, gas and electricity. I have food in the fridge and pantry. I have air-conditioning to keep me cool in summer and heating to keep me warm in winter. I have a bed to sleep in and clothes to wear. I have a television, radio and car.

7. I am thankful that I have access to the internet which allows me to work from home and help millions of people around the world.

8. I am thankful for the education I received, for the teachers who taught me how to read and write and many other things.

9. I am thankful that I became an engineer, coach and entrepreneur. This allows me to enjoy my work, meet interesting people, travel the world, earn a comfortable living and have a great life.

10. I am thankful that I found the meaning of life which is to grow and contribute. Grow means to learn and improve myself. Contribute means to reach out and help others, that is to be like a fruit tree that grows and bears fruit for others. The meaning of life is also to make myself and others happy. But I need to be happy first otherwise it would be difficult to make others happy. Happiness is like oxygen, like when you are in an airplane and there is an emergency due to lack of oxygen, you need to put the oxygen mask on yourself first before you can help those around you.

11. I am thankful that I found my passion which is to inspire you to express yourself through your passion and as a result create a life you love. I do this by helping people find their passion, develop it and give it to the world. I do this through coaching.

12. I am thankful that I am free to do what I want, when I want, where I want and with whom I want. I have a choice. If I don’t like something then I change it. I am in control of my life, my destiny and how I feel. I am responsible for my happiness not the weather, the government, my boss, my family or my friends but me.

13. I am thankful that I have a good sense of humor and that I don’t take life too seriously.

14. And I am especially thankful that I can share this information with you so you can take some time to consider what you are thankful for and to use those resources to go after what you want.

In summary the fastest way to feel good and happy is to be thankful and grateful.
