7 Reasons why I’m grateful…and my GRATITUDE WALL

Good morning. Gratitude fills my heart today. I realize that gratitude is a choice. 

It’s easy to be grateful when things are GREAT.

It’s not always so easy to be gratetful when things aren’t GREAT.

That’s when you really have to fight for your gratitude. Can I get an “Amen” to that?!!

One of the best habits we can do is start each day with Gratitude. And bookend the day with finishing your day with some reflective GRATEFUL thoughts also. 

Maybe it’s one thing…

Maybe it’s 3 things… 

O perhaps it’s even 5 things…

Today, I choose to share “7” things I’m grateful for (And when I’m done, I’d love to know a few of the things YOU are most grateful for also…). 

Here are just 7 things I’ve been grateful for in the past few weeks alone:

  1. The Padres “Pedal the Cause” event this past weekend.

WOW. It was just so awesome to make such an IMPACT like this. FQ10 raised over $50,000. There were millions raised from this ONE event alone. WOW is right! 

I was honored to share a few motivational words before the start of the 5K Walk/Jog. I reminded everyone to use this time to as a focused 30-minutes, 45-minutes, or 90-minutes to THINK. REFLECT (be grateful). And DREAM!!!

And Joe Pangelinan. 25+ year friend. Battling stage IV lung-cancer now for 3.5 years. Just so inspiring (Listen to last week’s podcast with Joe on Ep. 352 called “Press The Flesh”).

  1. Robin Sharma. Ep. 353 of the Todd Durkin IMPACT SHOW!!!

‘Nough said. He is one of the most iconic humanitarians, leaders, and authors of our time. I’ve studied with him for over 15-years. And I’ve devoured every single one of his books. And he just came out with another one yesterday. Read “The Wealth Money Can’t Buy” now.

My heart is full and GRATITUDE persists. I relish the opportunity to GO DEEP and create some serious IMPACT over the next 12-months with these peeps.

  1. My daughter’s driving.

Actually, I am NOT grateful for that. But I know she is. So that makes me happy! ☹

Haha. I’m very grateful for my entire family but this was too good to pass up!! ☺

I actually have ONE more. It’s considered my “AND THEN SOME.”

  1. YOU!! 

Yep. I mean that. This past Sunday night (the evening of the “Padres Pedal The Cause” event, I did something I hadn’t done in a long time…

I read every single letter on my GRATITUDE WALL in my home office. 

This is an array of dozens of letters from people over the years who have hand-written me “Gratitude” notes and sent to me.

My GRATITUDE WALL in the Home-Office

Normally, I might just read “one” a week and reflect on that person or that event, that a person alludes to in the letter. 

And I realized some of the notes went back 10+ years.

Some were former interns. 

Some were from people who read one of my books. 

Some were from people who attended a retreat or live event.

Some were people from one of my coaching groups and had a sense of keen ‘Gratitude.’

Some were people from people who listened to a keynote.

Some were employees. 

Some were from athletes. 

Some were from kids who heard me talk at a camp, clinic, school, or church.

They were from all walks of life. Why do I share? Because THEIR Gratitude made ME even feel more GRATEFUL. And made me BETTER.

As a man whose “love language” is “words of affirmation,” I really enjoyed that time of reading all those notes. And all the other aforementioned things as well. 

GRATITUDE. An attitude of gratitude is always a great place to hang. 

Spend some extra time in GRATITUDE this week and watch how it shifts your energy, your attitude, your mindset, your aura, your…EVERYTHING.

Much love…and tons of GRATITUDE.



P.S. What are 1, 3, 5, or even 7 things you are MOST GRATEFUL for?

Drop it over on the post I just made on my Instagram or Facebook NOW…

I’d love to see it!!

Thanks so much! Create a great day!!
