I was so happy to wake up one day and learn that I was in the top 3% of the people in the world. This really changed my life for the better. Mike Marino, Jr. Has been named to the top 3% of the people in the world who are the most blessed. Over six billion people on earth and I am in the top 3%. Wow! I thought to myself, I could not ask for more than this.
Our home was all but destroyed from hurricane Katrina. We are back in our home now after some serious renovations and rebuilding. For twelve months Allstate Insurance paid the high rent for a two bedroom house under our additional living expenses clause.
I was sitting on the front porch of the rented house when the land lord came over to say hello. I invited him up on the porch, and we talked about everything that was going on in the devastated area.
I told the landlord that I was in the top 3% of the people in the world that is the most blessed. The landlord was about 84 years old. He looked at me and said, “Oh yea, I am in the top 1 % of the people in the whole world that is the most blessed. ”
We both had a good laugh. The gratitude attitude! If I am not grateful for what I have, I will not be grateful if I should get more. It is written that God does not like an ungrateful child. I love to create beliefs that serve my life. In the word believe is the word lie. It is possible to believe a lie that serves your life and create that lie in your life.
That is what I did, when I believed and conceived the idea that I am in the top 3% of the people in the world that is the most blessed. I have so much to be thankful for. How may I serve humanity with humility? What can I do?
