Today I wanted to thank you for being a reader of my work. There are billions of things you could be doing instead of opening my newsletters and still here you are.
I learned it from many people, including Lewis Howes, Chris Lee, Seth Godin and James Clear, who reminded me to look at things with gratitude.
Just by reframing your situation you can feel happier and more content. Instead of complaining and saying “I have to,” replace it with “I’m blessed to” or “I choose to.”
Here are some examples:
I have to go to work becomes I’m blessed to go to work.
I have to wake up early becomes I’m blessed to wake up early.
I have to work long hours becomes I choose to work long hours.
I have to talk to my family becomes I’m blessed to talk to my family.
I have to start a business becomes I choose to start a business.
While it won’t fix your problems it will definitely make you feel more grateful for being alive. It won’t make a difference if you just say it once or twice. Try to play a game and catch yourself complaining, then reframe it and see what happens.
Thank you for being here. 🙏
