Gratitude Challenge: 30 Days of Gratitude

Gratitude inspires personal growth and joy more than anything else. So many people believe that gratitude is an expression after receiving something from someone, but what we are talking about is much more deeper than that.

When you look into your day, there are blessings everywhere. Put your focus on today. Even if you had a rough start to the day, look for the little things that went right and say it out loud to yourself: I am grateful that ______________. (Fill in your blank.)

Begin to shift your focus and look for reasons to be grateful. One of the easiest ways to accomplish big results in looking for opportunities to be grateful is to create gratitude for others. Kindness shown to strangers is the fastest way to encourage gratitude growth within you and for the people who cross your path. If you need ideas for random acts of kindness, our Premiere issue has a ton of simple ideas!

For 30 days, make the commitment to participate in at least one act of kindness per day. It can be online, in the grocery store, for a neighbor, or just for someone who is in a hurry and cut you off in traffic. Suspend judgment and negative emotions in that moment and create an energy of peace for yourself and the person. This will create an environment for gratitude to grow at a surprising pace.

Keep a journal of your experiences. Start your journal with how you are feeling today and the overall emotional state that you are in right now. If you are worrying about life, finances, family, etc.... journal it. Then suspend that worry for just a bit, while you focus on giving someone else a reason to be grateful. Document your activity daily and each day, start your journal with how you are feeling. The goal is to see how your emotions and problem solving skills will flow into a state of ease. The only way that you'll see the changes happen in the 30 days is to document your state of emotions.

Rate each day on a gratitude scale of 1-10. How grateful are you today? It's ok if it is low. This is not about being perfect at gratitude. This is about cultivating a garden of gratitude, and creating a place for gratitude to take on a life of its own.

Wanting Change Doesn't Mean You Will Change

by Dov Baron
We’ve all heard it time and time again - your brother, coworker, spouse, or friend is going to change. People love to talk about all the habits they’ll be breaking (or creating), the goals they’ll be setting, and the changes they’ll be making.

And while they likely believe that they mean it, the reality is: they don’t.

How can I be so sure? Well, most people aren’t willing to do what it takes to actually change!

In almost 25 years of leading and coaching, what I’ve found is that most people will say they want change, or agree that they need to change, but only if….

If they don’t have to be inconvenienced.

If they don’t have to give up being comfortable.

If they can hold on to everything from their “pre-change” life that they like.

What it boils down to is this:

“People want to change...as long as they don’t have to change”.

Before you point the finger - this is true of you too.

Every goal in life that you’ve set but not achieved, every habit you intended to break but never quite …

Letting Go & Accepting Change

“Look around you. Everything changes. Everything on this Earth is in a continuous state of evolving, refining, improving, adapting, enhancing…changing. You were not put on this Earth to remain stagnant.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli

The above quote is one of my absolute favorites; whenever I read it, I’m reminded that there is always opportunity for personal growth in life. It is a known fact that the things around us in our physical reality change from day to day, most times whether we want them to or not and whether we expect them to or not. For instance, we all experience the wavering changes of Mother Nature in our daily lives. The weather changes from minute to minute, hour by hour. Thus this is why many of us are obsessed with watching the nightly news to stay ahead of the constant weather changes. However, how many times has the meteorologist’s forecast failed you and you found yourself caught in pouring rain when mostly sunny skies were just promised to you hours ago?

Now, I would lik…
