Life is not easy. I know you’re saying “Big Surprise” – but the reality is everyone faces challenges. So the question becomes how do we push through to success in spite of the challenges we face every day. The answer might surprise you, but it is having gratitude.
Yes, sometimes, when you car battery is dead in the morning, or your computer tanks, or you have a family member who is having health issues, it is hard to always think about being grateful. But no matter what is going on in life, there is always something. I know when I got laid off unexpectedly and my house was on the verge of foreclosure and I wasn’t sure how even the electricity would be paid to keep the lights on, I didn’t feel very grateful. But I had my health and the motivation of my wife and children to keep me going and for that I was grateful. I didn’t know that the greatest opportunity of my life would show up and that Angie and I would embark on a journey that would change our lives for the better forever.
