Count your Blessings

As we end up this month’s simple step to success which is  gratitude, I hope you are now more aware of the benefits that gratitude brings into your life.


If you have been following this month’s step, you have now developed at least three strategies to a more grateful life.


For a busy person like you, I am sure you have realized that it does not take a lot of your time to be grateful and (forcefully for some of you) think of gratitude. I created this program primarily for you who are busier than ever but who truly wants to be more successful.


Just to recap what we have done so far this month:


  1. saying ‘thank you’ for the people who have helped you in your life – which only takes about 3 minutes
  2. taking 100 steps a day while saying ‘thank you’ – which only takes about 90 seconds
  3. being grateful for the best thing that has happened to you – which only takes approximately one minute


As you continue to build more strategies into creating a more successful life, you will notice that these quick-to-remember and quick-to-do strategies will become more natural for you.


Remember that I have embedded these easy and quick strategies to make the most out of your day – and bring you the best feeling of accomplishment


So for the last part of this month’s gratitude to success, I am inviting you to start your morning with a 2-minute reflection by (counting) saying 10 things that you are thankful for.


Your list could start as simple like this:

I am thankful for a wonderful sleep last night.

I am thankful for the bed I slept in last night.

I am thankful for the dreams I had.

I am thankful for another bright and sunny day.

I am thankful for my vision to see another day.

I am thankful for the water from my shower.

I am thankful for the breakfast I am about to eat.

I am thankful for the job that I have.

I am thankful for my family.

I am thankful to be alive.


You can be more specific in terms of what areas you would like to be thankful for each morning. Some of the areas you could think of to be thankful for are the following:


  1. Health
  2. Family
  3. Job/Career
  4. Your Plans for the Day
  5. Friends/Relationships
  6. Finances
  7. Business Relationships
  8. Your belongings
  9. Your thoughts


The list is endless.


You can practically think, say and feel whatever you want to be grateful for at the moment – but the key is identifying the 10 things that you are grateful for as you start your day.


I would like to hear from you as you do all these strategies. Please leave me a message on my email about how all of these strategies  or one of them have helped you.


Until next week!
