The Power of Gratitude

“If you learn to appreciate more of what you already have,
you’ll find yourself having more to appreciate.”
—Michael Angier

What if there was something that was both simple AND that could radically transform you, your life, your relationships, and your health?

Would that be something you’d be interested in?  We thought so.

Believe it or not, this “something” that we’re talking about is gratitude, and yes, it really is that powerful.  Research has shown that practicing gratitude can:

    • Elevate your mood
    • Reduce feelings of depression
    • Help you feel more connected
    • Help you become a better, more likeable, more trustworthy person
    • Lower levels of inflammation
    • Reduce anxiety
    • Boost energy levels
    • Reduce the severity/symptoms of illness
    • Improve your sleep
    • Helps you develop stronger bonds and relationships

Simply put, giving thanks can make you happier, and by helping you get outside of yourself, stop being self-centered, and become other-focused, gratitude can help you get away from ruts, setbacks, and self-pity.  It may also make you more successful.

According to legendary pastor and leadership and management expert John C. Maxwell, gratitude, by its very nature, automatically works to eliminate three mental characteristics that most undermine individual success in an interactive world:

    • Isolation
    • Egotism
    • Arrogance

Maxwell also talks about how gratitude can enrich your life:

    • Grateful people linger over life’s blessings
    • Grateful people live in the moment
    • Grateful people leave fear behind
    • Grateful people live on purpose
    • Grateful people love those beside them

So, how do you put gratitude into practice?  Great question.  In a New York Times article, Arthur C. Brooks, author of Gross National Happiness, suggests practicing three gratitude strategies to tap into its powerful benefits:

    • Interior gratitude: Keep a daily or weekly list of the things you are grateful for.  For example, each day you might write down 1 – 3 people or things you are grateful for.
    • Exterior gratitude: Write thank-you notes and share your gratitude with others.  These can be hand-written notes, phone calls, emails, or text messages.
    • “Be grateful for useless things”: Mindfully express thanks for the everyday stuff that we too often take for granted, like running water, air conditioning, washing machines, etc.

Oprah Winfrey, a leader in the consciousness of gratitude, may have said best, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more.  If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

To You!!!

Bananas, Cherries & PineapplesI want to show you how to set yourself up for success before spending your first dollar on Ads … or any other expenses.

When you watch a star athlete in action, whether it’s boxing, basketball, football, tennis, or golf, they make winning seem effortless.  That’s because they’ve put in the work, practice, and training to get to a very high level.  They’ve also done their mental “homework,” which means they know they’re going to win before they even play.

I know some people sell high-ticket training packages and receive a hefty affiliate marketing cheque.  And granted, it is slightly harder to find customers who’ll pay higher prices than those who won’t.  But I want to guarantee your success, here and now, not at some distant future or point that may never come to you.  I like to deal in reality.  I trust you do too.

Remember: finding your niche and target market ALWAYS comes first.  Don’t promote or create a product and then try to find a target audience for it.  Choose your audience first.  The best analogy I ever heard about this was from a guy called Howie Jacobson, when he said, “Untargeted marketing is like trying to shoot a mosquito with a shotgun.”

The bullseye area with the most targeted prospects is also the smallest in size.  But that’s where the hyper-responsive buyer are, so that’s where you’re going to make the most sales.

Walnuts, Beef, Lamb & EggsIf you only have one or two clicks coming in daily, you’re not going to make much money, unless everyone buys something and “that something” is the idea that you have a better way that can help them now!  And if you can get dozens or more clicks coming in each day, you can start generating even larger “team commissions.”

What do I mean:

  1. We let people in on a little secret.  When we show them the hundreds of dollars they are throwing away each year in extra tax money, they will beg you to explain, “How they can keep from doing it again this year, next year, and in the foreseeable future.”
  2. With this new tool — you have just shown them how easy it is to create interest in owning a home-business.  If they have a home-business right now, you have just made it much more successful by introducing this “Tax Saving Calculator” to their business.  [You just received a 50% affiliate-marketer-sale.]  Congratulations!!!
  3. And if they don’t have a home-business — you invite them to join yours — for the same great products and instant tax incentives, you received.  If nothing happens directly [today], you have added a friend (complete with contact information).  Who knows, at some time “down the road” this person may become a customer, business associate, or just may refer “their friends” to you.

I like this approach because you are providing benefit, without the expectation of reward.  Reward will likely come your way, no doubt about it, but, they’ll be offering benefit to you versus you asking benefit from them!

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good morning. The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown. In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down
