Quote of the week:

"Of all the attitudes we can acquire, surely the attitude of gratitude is the most important and by far the most life-changing. " - Zig Ziglar

You can, and should develop an attitude of gratitude. Be happy for all the great things in your life. Now you might think, “My life stinks. I have nothing to be thankful for. " If so, continue along, and do this week's Action Exercise.

Action Exercise:

Develop an “Attitude of Gratitude" Journal

Go buy a notebook and a nice pen to write with. Spend 10-15 minutes a day writing about the things that are good in your life. Hey, you woke up today. That's a good thing. WRITE IT DOWN! At the end of your day, take another 5 minutes and re-read what you wrote. Repeat for a week. When the week is over, your life will be much better than it was before the week began.

Why? Because you took the time to Make it Great! and are now appreciating the little things you used to take for granted.

Book of the Week: Attitude is Everything by Keith Harrell

In Attitude Is Everything, Keith Harrell will teach you his 10 steps for “an attitude tune-up" that “turns attitude into action. " Some of these steps are identifying the attitudes that hold you back or propel you forward, reframing bad attitudes, building supportive relationships, and seeing change as opportunity.

From my personal experience, I can tell you this book changed the way I look at things, and helped me reframe many times when I felt less than happy with the way something happened.

In addition to the book, I would also invite you to visit Keith's website and join Keith's “Super-Fantastic" club for a free newsletter that contains more ways to help you Make it Great!

Until next time. . . Make it a GREAT day!
