You're Missing the Point & Life is Going to Pass You By…

I didn't receive what I wanted in life until I realized what I already had.

I used to be able to list off 1 hundred different reasons why I wasn’t where I wanted to be in life, why I wasn’t making enough money, and why I hated waking up and going to work every day.

This POS customer was a complete jerk, work is trying to screw me out of commission, I can never find a seat on the bus, everything is getting more expensive, If only I could live in Costa Rica instead.

The more I was able to find struggle and complication, the more it flowed through.

And at that point, my life was pretty damn easy – I was just finding reasons to be upset. But I didn’t know any better.

And then one day life got really f*cking hard. You don't know how good you have it until it's all taken away.

In the matter of hours everything I had and all that I knew vanished.

  • My wife and I had to move out of our apartment and move in with my parents.

  • We had to close down our health and wellness business.

  • My commute to work and back quadrupled.

  • My social life completely ceased.

  • Our income dropped significantly.

  • Annddddd my wife was rushed to the hospital to have life saving brain surgery after being told she probably only had a few months to live.

Just the day before I bet I could’ve listed off 30 reasons life sucked – now I was praying to somehow be able to relive that day over and over again like Groundhog Day.

Many, many years later I learned something which completely uprooted my perception.


I didn't know I should be looking for this throughout my day, it was never taught in school or church and so I never realized how powerful it was.

You can't be grateful for a bunch of random events unless you're looking for it.

My perception was locked on to locating everything that was wrong about my life so that I could validate my own happiness. How messed up is that?

It's really freaking easy to find that kind of validation if you’re trained to look for it.

But it's also really freaking easy to find a hundred reasons to be grateful if you're trained to look for those instead.

Being told to be grateful for your life is like reading a spiritual quote that provides a brief moment of inspiration – but 10 seconds later you're right back into the funk of misery.

Most people I know never learned this one simple technique which drastically changes the quality of their day and therefore the happiness they experience.

Search for gratitude, it's as easy as that.

With it I guarantee you’ll experience an extreme shift in your perspective of life and therefore the quality of your life.

I’m talking in a matter of days too – not meager results three months out.

This may not be for everybody and I get it but if you:

  • Feel stuck, or like your life isn't gaining any traction.

  • Feel unfulfilled or that life really isn’t all that great.

  • Find yourself constantly complaining about crap every single day.

  • Look forward to decompressing after a long day with a cocktail or sharing all the drama with a friend or family member.

  • Need a change and to experience an abundant life.

Then it’s about time for you to experience a SHIFT in your life, why?

Because you deserve it.

Don’t make the same mistake I made for years by letting all the beauty of life go unnoticed because I was too busy pretending to be a victim of a life I neither appreciated nor enjoyed.

Tomorrow morning do this. Take a little Post-It note and put it on your nightstand or your cell phone. On this post-it I want you to write a little message that you’ll see it first thing in the morning.

“Find 10 reasons to be Grateful today.”

Now throughout the rest of your day I want you to actively search for moments or situations that bring about gratitude.

You could be grateful: that the sky is blue, that you have a nice car, that somebody paid you a compliment, because you saw somebody share a nice smile.

Don't overthink it.

We're not looking for monumental stuff – just anything at all. And at the end of the day I want you to do a little recap.

If you really want to take this practice to the next level then write down, using pen & paper, your ten things that made you grateful, but write it down like this:

“I’m grateful Blank happened because it made me feel Blank.”

I’m grateful I had a nice walk during lunch because it made me feel present and peaceful.

Write out your 10 things and keep doing this every single day. If you do this, I guarantee your life will become a hell of a lot more beautiful in a matter of a few days.

Honestly it should just take one day.

Once you build some momentum, that's when things will really begin to change.

But if you want to experience a tremendous shift – then now’s the time to take some responsibility for the way your mind functions.

Nothing in your life is going to change so much so that everything is just gonna magically be perfect and beautiful.

If you want to experience a really profound transformation, then please consider investing in my Mindset & Manifestation Masterclass.

If you really feel motivated but can't afford the entire investment, then simply reply to this email sharing a bit about your situation and I’ll make it work for you.

I understand that everyone isn’t in a position to invest in their own self-care but I want to help you out regardless – because you deserve it.

I’m grateful for you.
