What I’m grateful for before 7:00 am

I just finished a book on “How to be Rich”.  This book is not a finance book, it is a book that encourages you to realize how “rich” you already are, and how to live a life full of generosity as well.   The book states that the average income in the United States is about $37,000 a year and that makes you fall into the category of the Top 4% of wage earners in the world.  Meaning you are richer/have more than 96% of everyone else in the world.

This book also challenged me to think about what I am grateful for today.  Because I am rich (not monetary only) but in other ways, and I need to realize that more often.

  • I woke up
  • I have my health
  • I slept great on my comfy mattress and blankets.
  • I have a TV that I was able to watch the news on.
  • I have an awesome supportive family
  • I have friends that care about me.
  • I have colleagues that I call friends.
  • My house was warm.
  • My shower was really warm.
  • I was able to buy a $5 cup of coffee.
  • I put on a suit to go to work
  • I have a cell phone
  • I have a mac computer that I am typing this blog on.
  • I was able to read a book this morning that I was able to buy.
  • I know how to read.
  • I had a great breakfast
  • I have a job/career
  • I have a garage
  • I have a car
  • I have a home
  • I had some text messages from people who care about me to read.
  • I was able to look at Facebook and read some inspiring messages.
  • I am planning to help people grow today.

Be grateful today and realize how much you have already!
