I just saw this and thought it was awesome.
Check it out:
It really got me thinking about how much I take for granted in my life.
Today, I drove to the farmers markets with the woman I love, sat and ate some beautiful food from 3 different continents, surrounded by family and friends, then drove to the beach and lay in the sun and splashed in the water for a few hours, then I came home and booked a flight that will take me over 1000km’s in less than 2 hours, then jumped online to share this with a community of guys who are driven and motivated to create a more beautiful world.
How was my day?
“Yeah, it was ok…”
It’s so easy to get caught up in the bullshit that we often tell ourselves when really, we live in amazing world.
Yes, there’s terrible stuff happening all around the world. Yes, things can feel tough. Yes, life can seem hard. But, our time in infinitely more amazing than just about any time before us.
We can do things that we’re considered impossible and you would have been burned at the stake for even suggesting.
The fact that I’m writing this in Sydney and you’re reading it on your computer is amazing enough!
So, when things seem tough and it all looks too hard, take some time out to stop and marvel at everything incredible the world has to offer us.
It can be very easy to get caught up in the meaningless stuff that’s going on around you so here’s a quick exercise to help you get focussed on all the amazing things that happen every day.
Every morning for the 7 days, I want you to do a quick exercise.
As soon as you wake up, I want you to sit down and write a gratitude list.
A gratitude list is a very simple thing. It’s a list where you write down different things in your life that you’re grateful for.
For this list, I would like you to add 10 things every morning for the 7 days.
The catch is that you can’t include the same thing more than once.
This is a great way to bring your focus on to just how amazing this world really is.
Start now by adding your first 10 things in the comment section below.
