We often go about our day complaining about what we don’t have.
Time. Money. Success. That nice home
Wouldn’t it be better to go through life being happy for what we do have?
I thought so!
So, let me tell you about 2 magical words that you’re going to want to start saying everyday.
I learned about this from my good friend Scott Colby and the book Life Is Good.
Ready for these 2 words?
Pretty simple, huh?
Let me explain…
Most of us use the words, “have to.”
I have to go to work.
I have to get groceries.
I have to pay the bills.
Replace “have to” with “get to” and see what happens.
I get to go to work.
I get to get groceries.
I get to pay the bills.
When you use the words, “get to” it reminds you to be grateful for everything.
You get to pick up groceries because you have 2 legs to walk on, and 2 eyes to read the labels on the packages, and live in a country where there is an abundance of available food. You get to pay the bills because you have a phone to communicate with other people and electricity to light up your home and provide warmth in the winter.
Are you getting the idea?
When you say “get to” instead of “have to,” it transforms your mindset from pessimism to optimism.
Try it, and let me know how it goes.
I mentioned my fried Scott Colby who shared this concept with me.
Inspired by a trip to Guatemala, Scott is starting a movement…a gratitude movement called Say It With Gratitude.
Say It With Gratitude is a subscription based thank you card company that will allow you to have a big impact on your own life, as well as others, on a monthly basis.
The artwork for the cards was designed by kids in Guatemala. When Scott was in Guatemala, he noticed that despite how little families had over there, they were happy, smiling and grateful. When he returned home, he noticed that we often take for granted what we do have, and complain about what we don’t have. That’s when Scott decided to do something about it, and wanted to get the kids in Guatemala involved!
So he partnered with Pencils of Promise, a non profit organization that builds schools in developing countries. The kids that have had a Pencils of Promise School built for them were so grateful to have their new classrooms, that they wanted to do something to give back!
You can imagine how excited they were when they were asked to draw the artwork for the cards.
And that’s how Say It With Gratitude was born.
The artwork for the cards is beautiful and each month you’ll be sent a pack of thank you cards with new designs. So if you want more gratitude and happiness in your life, and have a big impact on others, whether they’re your friends, clients, or family members, then join the gratitude movement today!
You can simply go to SayItWithGratitude.com and place your order today. I’ve already placed mine and I can’t wait to start using these cards and show my gratitude and more importantly know that it is helping to build schools in the process and bring some joy to so many children because Scott will be donating a portion of each sale back to Pencils of Promise. So not only will you be making a big impact with a monthly act of kindness by sending out thank you cards, but you are also giving the gift of education to those less fortunate.
So go to www.sayitwithgratitude.com and start making a difference today!
