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.

Be grateful today and realize how much you have already!
