Today’s tip for Amazingness:

Take a Moment to be Grateful!


 

 

The OED (Oxford English Dictionary) defines gratitude as:

The quality or condition of being grateful; a warm sense of appreciation of kindness received, involving a feeling of goodwill towards the benefactor and a desire to do something in return; gratefulness. 

The Webster’s Dictionary of 1828 Describes it like this:

An emotion of the heart, excited by a favor or benefit received; a sentiment of kindness or good will towards a benefactor; thankfulness. gratitude is an agreeable emotion, consisting in or accompanied with good will to a benefactor, and a disposition to make a suitable return of benefits or services, or when no return can be made, with a desire to see the benefactor prosperous and happy. gratitude is a virtue of the highest excellence, as it implies a feeling and generous heart, and a proper sense of duty.

The love of God is the sublimest gratitude

Gratitude is something we practice and strengthen the sense of, much like we build muscles in our body, the more we are grateful the easier it is to be grateful.  Below are just a few benefits of a grateful heart.  Take a minute today to think of what you are grateful for.

So, how’s it going towards my personal goals to amazing? 

Goal one, my Shaklee BusinessYesterday was focus on family time but I made sure to have Shaklee gear, cups etc. around just in case it would open a conversation.

Goal two, my health and fitness:  Yesterday I reached my first weight loss/ size goal!!  I have wanted a Life Is Good T-shirt, but only wanted it if it fit well.  I made a goal of a size medium t-shirt and did it!!  I now am the happy owner of soft wonderful Life Is Good T-shirt and slightly more fit body!!

For the weekend my focus is on my amazing family, but I will still help people feel better and of course Strip and Shake daily.

100 Days to Amazing!  You can do amazing things.

I believe you can; you believe you can too!


 What the 100 Days is about:

I was at the Shaklee Global Conference August 12-16th and we were challenged to 100 Days of Amazing with the question of what could we accomplish in 100 days if we really tried?  I was inspired by the challenge, both as a business builder who wants to grow my business in 100 days and as an individual!  What could I do in 100 days?

My Journey to Amazing: My 100 Days to Amazing are committed to making a more successful business as a Shaklee Independent Distributor and I am also committed to 100 days to amazing health and fitness. I want to be fit for my future making sure that my health span matches my life span as closely as possible.  This is my Journey.
