Your Life From Good To Great!


What if I told you I had a magical daily practice that’d significantly change your life?  Well, if you’re anything like me, you’d be at least a little suspect … wondering what I might be trying to sell you!  I get it. But, I’m not trying to sell you anything!  Because of the life and business coaching I do, I’m just always on the prowl for ways to make my clients’ lives better.  And when I find something, guess who else benefits?

You do!  And I do, too.

What I want to give you today is absolutely free and you can use it immediately.

First, some set up.

I’ve tried for years to meditate consistently … to have some spiritual practice I do regularly.  But in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, each practice inevitably fell away. Sound familiar?

Recently, I found a book, The Miracle Morning, where the author lays out the concept of Life S.A.V.E.R.S.  The book isn’t very well-written, and I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it, but his Life S.A.V.E.R. concept caught my attention.  It outlines a 60 minute daily ritual, much like Tony Robbins’ Hour of Power, where you dedicate some time to each of the following:







It took me back to that first year of my practice when I did something like this every day without fail.  And even today, I’d point to that ritual as the number one reason why I built a full practice in less than a year!

So, I … not a morning person … took his advice and started setting my alarm an hour earlier to carve out the time.  I started taking that 60 minutes pretty consistently, and it was good.

And then, something special happened and it all fell into place.

I was doing a complimentary coaching call with a wonderful woman from Nashville TN.  Although she wasn’t a solid match for the business coaching I offer, we were so sympatico.

She told me about a book called, The Magic.  It’s the third book in The Secret series.    It outlines a truly magical daily practice I’ve taken completely to heart.

Every morning, I write about 10 things I’m grateful for and WHY I’m grateful for them.  Then, I go back and re-read my list, getting present to each item, and say, “Thank you, thank, you thank you!”

Every night in bed, I go back through my day and think of all the things I’m grateful for.  Then, I choose the one thing I’m most grateful for that day and say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

That’s it.  A total of 15-30 minutes each morning.  And five minutes at night. These are the anchors for my day.

I’m now on day 167.  Yup. 1670 things I’m grateful for.

Most days, I write in my journal.  Other days, when I’m sitting on the beach in our place in Mexico, I create my list on an app on my phone.  If something prevents me from my morning writing, I do it in my head … in the car … in the shower.

If something comes up during the day that throws me off my game, I drop back and concentrate on something I’m grateful for.

This practice has created miracles showing up all over my life!  It’s brought me:

  • Answers to thorny questions … ones I’ve been asking for a solution to for several years.
  • A corporate job that was immensely satisfying as well as profitable.
  • More clients and an increased sense of satisfaction in the work I do.

And more than anything, it’s brought me more peace, more joy … and a sense of overall well-being I’ve never had before!

As my partner, Tom, said to me one day, “I don’t know exactly what you’re doing, but keep it up!”  I think it’s working vicariously for him, too!

As we enter this time of Thanksgiving, when we’re reminded of all the blessings in our lives, I encourage you to make the giving of thanks more than a one day thing.

Make this daily practice an integral part of your life and see what magic happens for you!
